|The thing that has saddened me most about Marcus Evans ownership...|

is the lack of heroes and legends.
I wasn't around to support the greats such as Kevin Beattie, Mick Mills, Paul Mariner, Terry Butcher.....I could go on and on naming them. Players whose names are still mentioned often when talking about Ipswich Town Football Club.
I started watching Town when the likes of Marcus Stewart, Martijn Reuser, Jim Magilton, Matt Holland, Fabian Wilnis, Pablo, Shefki etc were playing. Great players who may eventually be admitted to the Ipswich Hall of Fame.
Then Marcus Evans took the club over. How many players from his era will even be thought of again? His teams have been made up of loanees, journeymen, players who stay a year or so and are off again. Players who do well and are sold off to other teams.
In the last 11years how many players will really stand out as legends? Luke Chambers maybe, Daryl Murphy perhaps but I can't for the life of me think of any more. The youngsters who make it will be sold on.
I certainly don't think any of the 'new' players will ever gain legend status. What will the fans of today tell their children and grandchildren about Ipswich Town?
Sad days at our football club.
