|Town Draw Lincoln at Home in FA Cup|
Would be nice to have a cup run at long last. I know promotion is the priority, but success begets success. How many fans don't want a cup run to provide that bit of extra excitement? I'd like to see us get to the third, then get a Premiership team at home. If it's not one of the 'big six', we could see how much we've improved recently by perhaps not winning, but giving someone a good run for their money, giving us confidence and a good yardstick by which to measure our progress.
|Ipswich Town 0-0 Doncaster Rovers - Match Report|
Disappointing, but suspected we'd get held today. Good team, in the play-offs last season and unbeaten this. Never mind, still unbeaten and second in the league. Would definitely have settled for this at the beginning of the season.
|Ipswich Town 2-1 AFC Wimbledon - Match Report|
Don't do that, Ipswich. Just ...don't...do ...that. Do they like to make us suffer? Proof, if ever it were needed, that we can't take ANYONE, ANYONE, for granted. 42 cup finals to go.
|Lambert: A Brilliant Win|
BlueySwede: no, I don't, but nice to read him being so humble and gracious, and congratulating us on a fine and deserved victory. No sour grapes at all!
|Blues Playing for Pride as Blades Hope to Confirm Promotion|
Sheff will be anxious about this game because the stakes are so high. We'll be more relaxed as we've only got pride to play for. Means we just might get something out of the game. Doubt it, will likely lose, but because of the dynamics I think it will be by just the one goal or possibly two, rather than the total hammering everyone seems to be predicting.
|Relegation Could Be Confirmed as Blues Host Birmingham|
Seems unimportant in the grand scheme of things, but let's just get a win tomorrow so at least we can say we were finally doomed by other teams' results rather than our own. Come on boys, pride at stake here.
|West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report|
Well, that was the sort of performance and result we need to give us some hope of coming back up next season. More shots, more shots on target, and more possession away at a team chasing promotion. Our promotion push starts now.
|West Brom 1-0 Ipswich Town - Half-Time|
Well, we were looking for some good displays and results before the end of the season to give us hope that we could bounce back again next year. This was one. More shots, more shots on target, and more possession against a team chasing promotion. I see our own promotion push as starting now. Let's get a few more points on the board and just maybe not finish bottom.
|The 'Tinpot' East Anglian Derby|
While our minds are on 'The Big One' on Sunday, can't help noticing in the Predictions that more people are foreseeing a 3-0 defeat or higher than all the other guesses put together. On one level, understandable. they're on great form, we're on lousy form. They're top, we're bottom. We haven't beaten them for ten years. Everything points to a walloping, right? Wrong. Firstly, the gap between top and bottom is a lot closer in the Championship than in the Premiership. So we're not talking Liverpool/Man.City against Huddersfield here. Secondly, local derbies can be great levellers, which introduces a dynamic which wouldn't be there between, say, Leeds and Reading. Thirdly, psychology: Norwich are 'expected' to win. They could well feel undue pressure as a result. Ironically, our low expectation could benefit us, along the lines of 'nothing to lose', thus removing that kind of pressure. Fourthly, unbeaten runs against teams are there to be broken. I.e. we've got to beat the b*ggers sometime! So, head on the chopping block. Against all odds, 2-1 Town. You read it here first.

A legend and a true gent. Rare combination indeed. Thank you for your invaluable contribution to our great success, Mick. Hope you retrieve that medal, which you just can't put a price on.
