|Blog ||Broken Ipswich|
by SouperJim at 11:05 13 Mar 2019
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.

I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
|Blog ||More Than a Manager|

It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.

Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
|Blog ||John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero|
by ElephantintheRoom at 18:10 24 Feb 2019
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.

A friend of mine can only drift off with the vacuum on. Old wives recommend counting sheep. And people who are unkind to themselves wrestle with tiny embarrassments from ten years ago.
|Blog ||The Man Who Loved Limericks|

There once was a gent called Mister John
Who went to a school for toffs called Eton
For him a crisis defined
Was a lack of white wine
Ipswich Town’s not the same since he’s gone
|Blog ||No More Heroes Any More|
by ElephantintheRoom at 13:19 8 Feb 2019
It’s fair to say that the Marcus Evans era has seen a bit of a change in the way the club is run. For instance, the now scarcely-credible, revolving door recruitment policy.
|Blog ||The 'Tinpot' East Anglian Derby|
by BradLloyd at 08:23 6 Feb 2019
Other fans from other clubs have referred to the East Anglian derby has tinpot but fans of Ipswich Town and Norwich City will tell you a very different story.
|Blog ||Thoughts From Villa Park|
by timjwoodall at 10:14 30 Jan 2019
Villa Park on Saturday was my first game of the season, having spent the last seven months out of the country. As such, I thought it would be an opportune moment to share some thoughts on the team.
|Blog ||The Long and Winding Decline|
by ElephantintheRoom at 17:09 13 Jan 2019
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
|Blog ||The Cup's Different|
by ElephantintheRoom at 11:28 6 Jan 2019
For many (dare I say most?) Town supporters, the proudest day in the club’s history is the cup final in 1978. Many know the team off by heart. Real diehards can quote David Coleman verbatim in the breathless build up to “Osborne!.... One-Nil!!!!!”.
