The Nearly Men
at 20:23 2 Mar 2019

Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.

John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero
at 18:10 24 Feb 2019

Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.

The Man Who Loved Limericks
at 17:31 18 Feb 2019

There once was a gent called Mister John
Who went to a school for toffs called Eton
For him a crisis defined
Was a lack of white wine
Ipswich Town’s not the same since he’s gone

No More Heroes Any More
at 13:19 8 Feb 2019

It’s fair to say that the Marcus Evans era has seen a bit of a change in the way the club is run. For instance, the now scarcely-credible, revolving door recruitment policy.

Beware the Man With a Plan
at 14:14 27 Jan 2019

“I love it when a plan comes together”, a gurning George Peppard was fond of saying every week on that cult 80s TV show, The A-Team.

The Circle of Football-Supporting Life

There has been a lot of talk about Town’s shrunken support base in recent weeks and a flurry of initiatives to increase crowd numbers and enthusiasm.

The Long and Winding Decline
at 17:09 13 Jan 2019

The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.

The Cup's Different
at 11:28 6 Jan 2019

For many (dare I say most?) Town supporters, the proudest day in the club’s history is the cup final in 1978. Many know the team off by heart. Real diehards can quote David Coleman verbatim in the breathless build up to “Osborne!.... One-Nil!!!!!”.

Relegation – A Chance to Go Forwards
at 17:40 31 Dec 2018

In the last decade the constant churn of managers and players has created something of a vacuum at Portman Road. There is a long established disconnect between the club and the community – but more worrying there is now a glaring disconnect between the players and the crowd.

Def info....
at 09:03 21 Dec 2018

I was in a pub last night, not unadjacent to Duxford speaking to a long term friend of a local lad made good, who is a long term injury. According to him, his friend had to pay for his own operation as the club would not fund it. IF true it might explain why Town have so many long-term injuries under the current regime. This somewhat surprising comment was confirmed by another person in the same pub who knows the player in question, quite well. His dad.
