1500-1
at 19:41 28 May 2024

After 1961-2 anything can happen. Many of our team then had come up from League Div 3. And we had a great manager as we do now. Many similarities. Worth a tenner at 1500 to 1!

While we're raiding chelsea yoof team for hutch...

Chalobah played midfield for us and he was pretty useless. Certainly not one of the best loanees we have had. But Chelsea has turned him into a centre half which seems to be his natural position.

Blackburn 1968
at 15:28 1 May 2024

We were already promoted because of our goal difference by the time of the Blackburn game in 1968. We just needed a point to win the 2nd league and Ray Crawford, as usual, did the business. I bumped into the ref after the game at Ipswich Station and he said "it was a dozy match".

But never forget Billy Baxter RIP. He was club captain and the rock in our defence. He and Ray were the only survivors in 1968 of our incredible team which won the top league in 1962 under Sir Alf.

Al-Hamedi changed the game!
at 08:55 2 Apr 2024

Southampton were very much in control and then Ali Al-Hamedi hit the post after a skilful play. The Town and the crowd suddenly thought
" Hey. We can win this." And how we did win it!

Still 10 points ahead of Leeds. Would have taken that at the start of the day.

Town immense tonight
at 22:44 12 Dec 2023

Was at the match and Town were immense. One of our great away wins. We dominated the first half, great goal from Morsy and, above all, we completely controlled the last 14 minutes when Watford hardly touched the ball. And Town fans gave fantastic support throughout the game. At the ground it was very wet, but it was a different game to what some are saying who watched it on TV.

Hutchinson
at 08:57 12 Nov 2023

A fine part of Hutchinson's game is his tracking back to help cover the full back. After he was subbed, Swansea's left winger ran riot. He scored one and nearly got another. Burns was playing high up the field and left us exposed. McKenna needs to think about that.

Our greatest teams
at 09:20 27 Apr 2023

The four terrific January acquisitions McKenna made brings back memories of the arrival of John O'Rourke and Peter Morris in 1968 that pushed us to promotion.

Also, a great team stays the same and has no injuries. That has happened to us in the last ten games.

The Town's greatest ever team was the one that won the League in 1962 (Bailey, Carberry, Compton, Baxter, Nelson, Ellsworthy, Stephenson, Moran, Crawford, Phillips, Leadbetter) that hardly changed in that wonderful season.

When we win the Championship next season, perhaps Walton, Clarke, Burgess, Woolfenden, Davis, Morsy, Luongo, Burns, Broadhead, Hirst, Chaplin will rival our greatest ever team!

And a very good goal.

But Keogh right off the pace in 1 on 1.

Is not Thérèse Coffey the key here? She is MP for Suffolk Coastal and in the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. She is a life-long Liverpool fan and was responsible for getting Kenny Dalglish his knighthood. Support from her could make the difference.

Most promising Town player who didn't make it...

Kevin O'Callaghan. Could have won us the league in 1981 and 82 but promise not fulfilled.
