Phoenix Rising are the first club in history to acquire 20,000 fans overnight from a foreign country. Thankfully, their home kit isn't green or yellow. COYR!

Really liked what I've heard, welcome to the club guys, really pleased you chose to invest here, you will be welcomed in with open arms I'm sure. You will find Ipswich can be a great place to be, especially when the club are winning matches

Already more press conferences than the entire ME era

My will to live has been extended by a few years.

Great to have new owners and a warm welcome to them. Hopefully the start of a great era too.

dirtydingusmagee added 09:30 - Apr 8
HOPEFULLY, we will have a face that communicates with fans now, one of the problems that ME never really dealt with well.

Have to say I'm suitably impressed with both Mr.Johnson and Mr.O'Leary! Regardless of what happens this season I'm excited to see what goes on in the summer!

Mike & Brett come across extremely well and clearly know their stuff, I am really looking forward to the next chapter at ITFC under their stewardship. Big thanks to Marcus too for doing the right thing to enable our club to progress, including waiving the debt.

Exciting times ahead and i just hope our players are out to really impress over the remaining games.

Be interesting to hear from Paul Cook now, yes a few in the team will know its gameover.Expect Chambers is trying to convincee the new owners that he is related to Hoppalong Cassidy now, .Hopefully he will be one of those on the Deadwood Stage out of town when it leaves.This season realistically is a dead duck, so its all eyes on summer signings and the hope of a good 21/22 season. COYB, lets get after them Canaries.

Marcus Evans was a boyhood fan of Town? Sounds like that was written by the Ministry of Truth. A decade ago the story was he developed as a supporter after buying the club. Possibly true if he refers to himself as a boy at that stage, but that's pushing propaganda a little too far.

Jesney Havoc.....have you not listened to his accent? nothing Irish about that.

itsonlyme added 12:28 - Apr 8
Absolutely brilliant! Am really looking forward to season ticket renewal as I hope the fans buy them to say thanks for the investment.

Time to start saving up for the pre-season tour of the States.

I really like these guy's realism of the task ahead. There is no doubting their passion to succeed and they are clearly focussed and determined but fully understanding of what needs to be done. No bold promises but you left in no doubt that they want Championship football as soon as they can.

I imagine they will instill the winning mentality in the club, so the players, manager, coaches and staff need to step up because I'm sure failure is not going to be tolerated.

We can genuinely be optimistic for the future of Town, probably not this year now, but next year there should be a marked improvement and if we don't gain promotion then, it will be the year after, of that I am sure.

A very positive step for ITFC.... let's hope their ambition is matched by some money and they invest in the team to plug the well known gaps.... They clearly knew about the Cook appointment and clearly approved that in the background, so let's all get behind Paul Cook and ensure we finish this season well and if we don't make play off's / sneak promotion, that we do so next season....

Trip advisor suggests that B&B prices are reasonable in Phoenix, if as rumoured the Accrington game is moved to Casino Arizona Field next season !

Help added 16:12 - Apr 8
Well it looks like season tickets are going to be at an all time high next season. Fingers crossed the transfer window goes well and the new owners don't leave it till the last minute to get the new squad in.

I wonder how many players will up their game on Saturday and will we see an sudden improvement in effort and form?

Help added 16:13 - Apr 8
Phoenix for a pre season friendly home and away?

Send your players requests to Mike O’Leary and Brett Johnson by email. I have been through Fifa and have 11 possible targets. Some bloke called Haarland looks okay in Germany. only joking there will be new star in 2 years time for the Premiership assault.

Runner added 16:29 - Apr 8
They are moving to new ground/training centre a few miles south to new 10000 stadium for the next upcoming season. Bit more on the edge of Phoenix, but it is a big city, 1.5m+ people over 500 square miles.
