Monday, 11th Jan 2021 15:31
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the friendship between fans of Town and Fortuna Düsseldorf, supporters of the German club are staging a Subbuteo match between the sides this Saturday.
The Fortuna Blues have been unable to make their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road this season but to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their first visit, Ulli Münsterberg, who organises their trips, is staging a Subbuteo match.
Ulli wrote on Facebook: “This weekend marks the 15th anniversary of the friendship between both sets of supporters from Fortuna Düsseldorf and Ipswich Town, but there is no travel to Portman Road at this time for obvious reasons.
“However, there will be a game of football being played between the two teams of our clubs. The venue will be at Portman Road, kick-off will be Saturday next week, 1500 hrs UK time.
“According to recent circumstances, this match will be played only at my own Subbuteo ground, according to the international solo Subbuteo league rules.”
Ulli wants fans of the two clubs to name squads of their all-time favourite players.
“Tractor Boys and Girls post your entries here as a comment and Fortuna fans vice versa. Please name a squad with 11 players, two substitutes and your favourite all-time manager. From all of your entries, I will pick the best two squads of our clubs to play this match.
“On top of that, feel free to mention one or two games of your club, which were in your own experience outstanding or somewhat special. I will pick few of the entries and send illustrated scenes from those matches.”
Entries will be accepted until Thursday with the game reported on via Ulli’s Facebook page.
Ulli added: “It's meant to be a nice option, to meet online this time to have a bit of a united party together.”

Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
