|Songs for players|
at 08:02 9 Dec 2019
I don't understand why we don't sing songs for any of our players at the moment. Someone did try and start off a rendition of "We all dream of a team of Tommy Smiths" on Saturday. We've got a squad full of home grown players but we don't even churn out the standard "Xy X he's one of our own".
With reported interest in Downes and Wolfenden surely we should try to make sure they know how much they are appreciated by the fans.
So, my two suggestions - based on old classic songs that I know have been suggested before and dismissed because the vocal youth support won't know them, but they are very simple and fit so well (I think).
Come on you Blues
Sing out his name
YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING LIKE OUR MIGHTY FLYNN
Wolfy of Ipswich
Couldn't be easier, surely?

Tickets are still available. I'm surprised, I thought these sold out pretty quickly on previous occasions?
|More upset with the North Stand than the team last night|
at 09:50 24 Oct 2019
At the risk of sounding like Delia - where were you North Stand?
After one poor result on Sunday the team needed to re-group and push on.
Over 20,000 in the stadium and both tiers of the North Stand full, but there to support the team or just stream celebratory videos when we score?
As supporters, we can do nothing in a match to change the tactics or team selection deployed by the manager, but we can hugely effect the confidence and motivation of the players on the pitch.
Going a goal down early on was a blow. Last year, this would have seen loud choruses of ITID or "Come on Ipswich" to show support and encourage the team to dig deep and fight back. Last night - silence. The North Stand is the heart of vocal support, recently it has been spreading round the ground but it is always generated there.
Rotherham are a physically huge team that pressed hard and bullied our players out of most free balls. They showed more desire, while Ipswich floundered.
If you were struggling to do your job well, in front of 20,000 people, what would motivate you to push on and find that extra yard? Boos or support?
Sitting in the Co-op stand (close to the North Stand) I could occasionally hear murmurings of support from Section 6, nothing from the rest. The few hundred Rotherham supporters made more noise and I'm pretty sure at one point I could just about hear supportive chanting from the lower Churchmans.
Our fans are continually praised by PL and the players for their support, last night we showed up in numbers but gave no support. There will be bad matches this season but we need to pull together and push the team on, save the moaning and groaning until the match has finished - you will be welcomed onto Radio Suffolk's phone in.
Please don't let us revert to a toxic atmosphere at Portman Road.
