Value
at 11:41 3 Jul 2024

All this talk of players worth tens of millions got me thinking.
Just what would have been the value of Bobby's teams if they were at their peak now.
How much for

England internationals

Mariner
Gates
Mills
Talbot
Beattie
Osman
Butcher

Scottish Internationals

Wark
Brazil
Burley

Dutch Internationals

Muhren
Thijssen

And finally last but not least
Big Al, the most capped of then all.

She went to Aldi (other supermarkets are available), and bought one of those things that you hang over the edge of the loo to make it smell nice.
This one consisted of 5 green and yellow balls.
I find it has improved my aim immencely.

It was dire.

They played a similar system to Town with (presumably) better players.

But without the overlapping wingers.
Without the pace, effort or passion.
Nobody appeared to make space or get themselves in good positions.
Nobody thought.

If this is the best the Premier League can do ........

Liverpool think we will be a push over.
They may be surprised.

All the big broadcasters and news people concentrate on 5-6 of who they perceive as the top football clubs. Presumably because it is easier to only have to follow a few and report.

However the vast majority of the football supporters do not actually follow those clubs. They mostly go with their local team whether it is in Bristol, Birmingham, Bradford or Bournemouth.
Some, I have heard, even watch them "That we name not" ! No, that can't be right can it ?

I have spent some time trawling the forums of other clubs. With the notable exception of one there are a lot of very positive things being said about us. I might even say envious eyes.
The footballing world in general has taken note of Town for the first time in many years. The rise from the depths of Div 1 to the EPL has got everybody's juices going.

But the real story here is not just about Ipswich. It is that what has happened to us gives hope to all the other EFL clubs and beyond that make up the rest of the football pyramid. "If they can do it then we can too !" Get a magical manager from nowhere and a great hardworking team and who knows !
It is what will put bums on seats and shoes on terraces all over the country in August. Everywhere.

Football is about hope, loyalty and passion and the greatest of these three is hope.

We are under no disillusions as to what we face next year. I think that perhaps the Premier league may have !
But that's another story.
At least we will have a toe in the door. I predict a rise in 3-2, 4-3 and even 5-4 scorelines! Bring it on !

15 Months ago we played Forest Green and look where they are? My heart genuinely goes out to them. Both seasons have been really exciting 3-4 horse races where anybody can and did beat anybody. (Southampton doubled Leeds, Leeds doubled us and we doubled Southampton).
Give me the EPL money yes, but give me the EFL for excitement every time.

But, just for the moment, the rest of the country spells Ipswich as "H-O-P-E".

It says a great deal about how intelligent our manager is by how well he has been able to get himself an excellent new contract while at the same time enhancing his own reputation. I'm glad he is on our side.
