Yelling The C-Bomb
at 15:12 22 Sep 2019

The was a gentleman - and I use this term loosely - within our fans who frequently yelled out the C-Bomb at the top of his voice yesterday at any given opportunity.

I am not a prude by stretch of the imagination, but is this really necessary? There were many children at the game and of all the swear words that one could use, this is absolutely the worst...

Am I being too much of a Dad or do I have a point?
The Incredible Noise Of Our Fans Pre-Match
at 15:05 22 Sep 2019

I was speaking to a barmaid yesterday who lives fairly close to the away pub in Gillingham - the Fleur De Lisa - and she mentioned that our fans were the loudest that she has heard since she moved into her house!

Top work by all
Does Anyone Need A Hotel Room For Burton Away?
at 07:53 15 Jul 2019

I booked an Ibis Hotel double room for Saturday 3rd August, but now cannot attend the game due to work.

It's a nice place to stay and is only 5 miles away from Burton's ground.

I paid £70 for the room including breakfast for 2 people - I'll accept £60 from one of the good TWTD folks.

Please PM if interested or require any further information.

Many thanks

Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager - Exclusive Behind The Scenes Video...

Look out for the fan in the Town shirt
I Went To Watch 'Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager' At Wembley Tonight
at 01:50 24 May 2018

It's funny, heartwarming, emotive, beautifully shot and extremely well put together.

Don't want to write too much, so as not to spoil it for those yet to see it - Sir Bobby's time managing in Spain, Portugal and Holland are all covered, as is his time as England manager and Ipswich!

There are some wonderful moments shared at various times during the film by (the original) Ronaldo, Pep, Mourinho, Shearer, Lineker, Ferguson and Gazza.

Good amounts of footage - Ronaldo really had the lot as a player - and there is a good amount of ITFC coverage.

While Henry Winter was the host, Terry Butcher was the guest speaker tonight and did an excellent job. He said the England team should watch this film before they go to the World Cup, and he is right!

Lady Elsie was in attendance, as was their son, Mark, and I bumped into Barry Fry.

My estimation is around 2000 attended tonight - I didn't see many Town shirts though but perhaps that more to do with the dip in temperature rather than non-attendance.

A wonderful film that encapsulates Sir Bobby very well indeed and I would recommend it as a must-see for all Town fans!

Sir Bobby would be proud, very proud indeed!

PS I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Terry Butcher tonight and he happily posed for some pictures. I asked him about the possibility of him and George taking over as manager and No 2. He replied that the club want to go for someone younger, and confirmed that neither him nor George had been invited for an interview.

If you have a ticket, you are in for a real treat, and if you don't have a ticket, I would recommend that you buy one!

Thanks for reading!

I'm Going To Be In Ipswich For A Day Or 2 Over Half-Term With My 2 Daughters...
at 14:01 18 May 2018

Aged 13 and 12.

Does anyone have any great suggestions for things we can do or visit in Ipswich that the girls might enjoy please?

I'm not local and don't know the area well and would appreciate any pointers.

Many thanks indeed!

PS We'll probably go to the Suffolk Show on one of the days.
