On 31st July 2013, Ipswich Town confirmed that after initially securing Category Two standard under he new Elite Player Performance Plan, that they will be going for Category One status as an academy, and the academy director, Bryan Klug declared that “It’s absolutely vital for this club that if we are going to produce the top level of player, we are Category One."

Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans?
at 21:07 31 Jan 2016

As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.

Would Reece Brown Be a Useful Addition to the ITFC Squad?
at 12:47 13 Jun 2013

On the face of it, what is there to disagree with about signing Reece Brown – young, schooled at Manchester United, capped for England at youth level, even representing his country at the U20 World Cup two years ago.

[Blog] What I Would Do If I Was Chief Executive of Town to Try and Protect the Future of the Club
at 15:03 9 May 2012

This blog is an attempt to write from a neutral viewpoint. Personally I don’t think Paul Jewell is the man to lead Ipswich forward – but this isn’t a ‘Jewell out’ moan or anything of the sort.

[Blog] Have ITFC Ever Had a Squad as Weak as This?
at 09:39 25 Apr 2012

With the end of another disappointing season approaching, one which sees us with a lower points tally than last season's disaster, and news that all of our Academy graduates have either turned down their pro contract or been released, it got me wondering if we have ever had a weaker squad of professionals than we do at the moment.

[Blog] To Rotate or Not to Rotate?
at 08:55 29 Mar 2012

Over the past few months, Paul Jewell has proven himself to be a manager that doesn't like to change the team to keep it fresh over the course of a season. He prefers to play a settled line up week in-week out - and while this is a sentiment that many fans seem to agree with - I think this is the wrong way to manage a squad over a long and arduous season.

[Blog] Realistically, How Many Players Should ITFC Sign in the Summer?
at 15:34 26 Mar 2012

It seems every time ITFC lose a game, there are dozens of threads on the Message Board and tweets stating that we need to sign seven players this summer, usually followed by something like this - 'GK, CBx2, RB, CM, ST'.

[Blog] Hello Paul Jewell - Welcome to 2012!
at 13:49 28 Feb 2012

What a difference a few weeks makes in football, six weeks back Jewell was a dead man walking and now he seems to have won round a number of the nay-sayers. However, I could rephrase the first part of that sentence to say 'What a difference a formation makes in football'.

[Blog] Can We Have Our Football Club Back Please?
at 15:57 1 Dec 2011

The last few years have been a rather depressing time to be a Town fan, while Marcus Evans has saved the club financially at what expense has it been to our football club?

[Blog] Diamonds Aren't Forever?
at 13:49 6 Nov 2011

Sorry for lack of recent blogs, I felt like I didn't know what I was talking about when the diamond was working so well at Boro and West Ham and against an out of form Brighton but it seems to have gone the way I predicted against Coventry - so unfortunately, as it gives me no pleasure to see Town lose, we are seriously struggling and dropping down the table like a lead weight.

Better going forward, same problems at the back. Don't let the scoreline flatter you on this game, had Coventry taken a couple of their chances this could have been a very different game.
