|Blog ||The Beat One Year On|
by ElephantintheRoom at 14:08 8 Sep 2019
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

We live in strange times. Town’s embarrassing embarrassment of recent Premier League and Championship play-off bogeymen Bolton Wanderers highlighted the massive financial and ethical problems now facing football, eloquently discussed in the recent blog by Stowmarket.

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
|Blog ||Green’Un With Envy|
by ElephantintheRoom at 09:53 15 Aug 2019
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
|Blog ||Heart of Darkness|
by Stowmarket at 16:30 11 Aug 2019
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.

by portmantales at 12:17 7 Aug 2019
Saturday sees Jack Ross finally enter the Portman Road dugout; some would argue 12 months too late. After a successful siege of Burton, today we delve into the fortunes of a Sunderland team that played 61 games in their last campaign and came away empty handed.

The season is over, the Lambert love-in has cooled and the dust is just about settling on the season ticket hype.
|Blog ||Where Might This Lead?|

As we draw stumps on the darkest season in the club’s recent history, it is hard not to reflect on Paul Lambert's efforts to revive our listing club with at least a degree of optimism for the future.

There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

by EricWark at 20:08 18 May 2019
My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
|Blog ||Too Many Suspects? – A Swede Ramble|

Town have finally dropped through the beckoning trapdoor – but who to blame? Rev Evans with the peeling candlestick? Colonel McCarthy with the fraying rope? Captain Keane with the poisoned dart? Professor Paul with his own interpretation of chaos theory?
