|Ipswich Town 4-1 Burton Albion - Match Report|
Enjoyable win. Well done to Jackson. He missed a few 1 on 1s but he kept plugging away and was a constant threat, so it was good to see him score a couple of goals today.
|Sir Alf Born 100 Years Ago Today|
An interesting article about a man who, in some of his attitudes, may now appear to have had the views of a bygone era. However, in football terms he was ahead of the game and masterminded Ipswich and England's greatest achievements. Anyone who has had the good fortune to speak to any former player from those winning teams will know that they would have run through brick walls for Alf. Once that is remembered, no further tributes are necessary.
|John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener|
Great blog- brings back good memories of a cultured footballer. Especially liked your reminiscence of Viljoen stretching in the warm-up. I guess he was always a bit of an outsider, but a classy midfielder with attacking flair - how we could do with someone like that now!
|Loanee Georgiou Returns to Spurs|
Looked good on debut, but only ever seemed to use his left foot. Once his opposing defender knew that he was never going to the right foot the job of defending against him was made much easier.
|Warne Set for Portman Road 'Walk of Shame'|
Strange comment for an opposition manager to come out with. Regardless of where he was born, he should be proud to manage a team visiting Portman Road.
|Ipswich Town 0-0 Doncaster Rovers - Match Report|
Positives: 3 clean sheets in a row in the league! Holy looking the part in goal, although kicking long too often for my liking. Chambers, Woolfenden and Kenlock all made great saving tackles and KVY was classy again.
Negatives: outplayed by Doncaster for long spells, poor formation conceded possession and territory, too much hoofball, useless delivery from corners and free-kicks, Norwood battled hard but should have taken one of his chances, ineffective substitutions.
On the balance of play, relieved to take a point from this match. Expect Garbutt to return soon as he will improve the left hand side going forwards.
|Lambert: I Thought We Were Excellent|
Another superb debut performance, this time from KVY. Everything is falling into place with each new player slotting into the system and improving the squad. Amazing turnaround from the situation 12 months ago - thank you Lambo! Fair play to Shrewsbury who had good spells in the game, but they lacked our firepower up front - Jackson looks like a new signing alongside Norwood. Downes is starting to look like the real deal but don't tell the vultures from the Premier League.
|Ha'way the Draw – Sunderland Home Preview|
Good pre-match read. Accurate description of Leadbitter's corners, but he did use to be strong in the tackle and could be an interesting battle with Downes today. Similar style of play to Skuse in some ways but not afraid to shoot and scores more goals.
|Town Announce Squad Numbers|
I would suggest trying to get Tommy Smith back at 5, but we couldn't afford him, even though we gave him away for nothing.
|Godbold Honoured By LMA|
Richly deserved recognition for amazing service to the club we love and football in general. I met Pat in her capacity as archivist and she was very helpful. ITFC has an amazing collection of stuff from our glory years. I recall seeing one of the ash trays that were presented to each of the first team squad that won one of the leagues during Ramsey's reign. How times have changed!
