Brilliant Town Shock Favourites
by clivebleedingthomas at 09:00 9 Apr 2020

Circa ‘75 Holland had the best national team in the world, unluckily losing the World Cup final in ‘74 to West Germany and again in ‘78 to Argentina, each time being cursed by playing the host nation in their backyard.

Goals Galore and There Could Have Been More
by clivebleedingthomas at 09:00 6 Apr 2020

In early October 1992, with 10 games played the infant Premier League had a bizarre look about it. Norwich City top, Nottingham Forest bottom, Oldham Athletic alongside the Town in mid-table, two points above Liverpool.

Woods-Inspired Victory for Rampant Town

Town had already been on a far reaching European tour by early November 1977 when they reached the UEFA Cup third round.

Reigning Champions Outfought By Town
by clivebleedingthomas at 09:00 30 Mar 2020

The 1994/95 season ended with the Town bottom of the Premier League with only seven wins to their name. Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.

Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top
by clivebleedingthomas at 09:00 26 Mar 2020

The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.

And Along Came Jim
by Moggasknockdown at 12:43 24 Mar 2020

Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.

City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen
by clivebleedingthomas at 10:00 23 Mar 2020

My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.

The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way
by SomethingBlue at 15:23 4 Mar 2020

It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.

Scapegoats
by bbg at 21:33 2 Mar 2020

A lot of blame gets thrown about on this site and on other media with owner, manager and players on the receiving end. I haven't seen too many posts where supporters have taken the blame for the current predicament, because you had a massive role in it.

What Do We Want? Something Else! When Do We Want It? NOW!
by Moggasknockdown at 15:58 24 Feb 2020

The long slog back to the station after Saturday’s familiar witless performance felt like another Groundhog Day. The wind whipped in from the river and the grey skies threatened to spill into rain.

Wing Wonders (Part Two)
by ElephantintheRoom at 09:00 4 Jan 2020

As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.

2019/20 - Grating Expectations
by tractorboykent at 12:03 2 Jan 2020

A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

Wing Wonders (Part One)
by ElephantintheRoom at 10:05 31 Dec 2019

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.

John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener
by ElephantintheRoom at 10:13 27 Dec 2019

For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

Big Al

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.

Politics and Ipswich Town
by ElephantintheRoom at 16:48 29 Nov 2019

You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?

The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner

Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.

Round Three: Eagle
by Kropotkin123 at 18:32 22 Sep 2019

Introduction
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
