Craig Forrest not even getting mentioned in these best starting 11’s...
at 10:32 19 Apr 2020

263 appearances for us over 12 years.

Was he actually not that good?

(He was way before my time)

Post apocalyptic thinking (no football this weekend!)
at 00:02 15 Mar 2020

And cause I’ve had a few shandies and this question got my brain whirring..

If say I offered you a million pounds to go watch Norwich every home game for 10 seasons and this task was duly completed.

By the end of it, would you be a Norwich fan?

You’d resent it and be overly critical of them at first.. but if you were watching them every home game, herd mentality would kick in and after 10 seasons you’d be rooting for Norwich wouldn’t you? You would have adapted to the team, club, fans- 10 years is a long time. 10 seasons of watching Norwich fans get up and celebrate a goal would have an effect on your psyche- surely? Would it not? You would surely be more that way inclined than Ipswich. This scenario works vice versa for Norwich fans having to attend Ipswich games for 10 years too. Surely it would have some effect wouldn’t it ?

What would you rather...
at 12:07 6 Mar 2020

Norwich win the FA cup but still get relegated?

Or..

Norwich don’t win the FA cup but stay up?

I know we are all Ipswich fans and don’t give a toss what they do up the road so just treat it as just a lighthearted Friday afternoon thought provoker

Budgies win on pens against Spurs... and they have either Derby or man united in the quarters..

So that’s Norwich vs Derby then

What a time to be alive to be an Ipswich fan

Really boring Ipswich parking question incoming...
at 18:55 20 Feb 2020

...(With the obvious Gatwick aside) I need somewhere to park and leave my car for the day with as easy access to the A12 as possible. My colleague is coming from Lowestoft and is picking me up en route to London so I need somewhere with as little detour as possible for her. I don’t know Ipswich or that area very well at all. Someone mentioned to me Foxhall Heath? What actually is that? Any other suggestions are gratefully received

I like Nigel Clough...
at 00:18 16 Feb 2020

And I think he’s one of the games honest and good guys and his post match interview reflected that... I thought they were neat and tidy at times and didn’t capitulate In terms of heads dropping in the second half when we were overpowering them. But according to him we ‘brought on internationals off the bench‘- have I missed something there ?

Just looked him up. How the hell did that one come about back in the day? Played for some randomly exotic but small clubs prior to Ipswich with a pretty rubbish goal scoring record.

Delia Smith...
at 21:57 22 Sep 2019

I just learnt that she lives in a village near Stowmarket for over 40 years after she spent her early years in south London.

How on earth did she end up supporting Norwich? Especially as she was seen with a blue rosette when we won the FA Cup?

A lovely positive move by the club to enhance the First Time Fans Initiative...
at 16:41 18 Sep 2019

But a wondering thought just popped into my head...whatever happened to that 'fans board' thing where you had to apply and be selected to join? Maybe about 18 months ago ? Did anything ever come of that?

We are on a slow treadmill to death..
at 22:45 28 Jun 2019

As a 27 year old man I’ve seen my life and others change around me in what is a relative short time on planet earth. How does it feel to be 37? How does it feel to be 47? How does it feel to be 87?

Each passing day we step that little bit closer to the inevitable.

At this stage of my life at 27 years old I can only envisage being middle aged with half my life gone and reflect what I could do differently. Or imagine being an 87 year old and having seen your grandparents, parents, siblings, aunties and uncles etc as well as life long friends pass on. Absolutely bonkers.

Growing old is a privilege. I get that. I just wanted all your thoughts on this.

Depressing Friday night thread if there was ever one, I agree, but what would the good people of TWTD do differently? Do you accept that growing old is a natural part of the life cycle or do you pine for when you are 18 again?

Wouldn’t life be sweet...

If you could relax on a Friday evening after a long week at work and enjoy a few well earned beers to loosen the metaphorical guitar strings of ones self and reflect about life in general with some good tunes to boot...

And not wake up feeling hungover and then wondering weather it was even all worth it because of said hangover.

The back of the Co-op Stand roof ‘IPSWICH TOWN F.C.’
at 18:15 1 May 2019

I know it’s the least of our worries now *insert joke about SBR stand roof being dirty*, but does anyone think the text on the co-op stand roof should be‘IPSWICH TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB’ as it’s much more official and professional looking than the abbreviated ‘IPSWICH TOWN F.C.'

It doesn’t keep me up at night but often think this every time it catches my eye.

Does anyone know the name of the track that is used right at the end just as the credits roll? (I don’t want to describe the exact scene as it could be seen as a spoiler) It’s really uplifting and possibly Motown but not sure. Can’t seem to find it named anywhere online.

Or did Steipermann (aka little flower pansy) get charged today because the FA are obviously fit for purpose and I just missed the news story?
