For many of us this game rates as the most exciting game we have ever watched at Portman Road. It had everything - goals aplenty, tension, disappointments, penalties, controversial decisions and… a wonderful outcome.

at 09:00 13 Apr 2020
Easter 1962 could hardly have been more of a contrast to this Easter. It was sunny, though. Three football matches in four days over Easter was the common practice in those halcyon times. Town entered the holiday period one point ahead of Burnley, top of the league.

Circa ‘75 Holland had the best national team in the world, unluckily losing the World Cup final in ‘74 to West Germany and again in ‘78 to Argentina, each time being cursed by playing the host nation in their backyard.
