Never thought this day would come... 21:01 - Aug 28 with 1818 viewsShropshireBluenago09

Ipswich Town v Shrewsbury Town
Been a fan of Ipswich since 81 and Shrews since 83, having moved from Glos to Shrewsbury in 82.
UEFA cup winners, the Burley years and consistently a Prem or Championship regular.
Shrewsbury on the other hand, league two and more recently league one.
How we have fallen!
I’ll be in the away end with my brother and a couple of mates, as an ‘ultra neutral’ 🤫

Weren't they both in Division 2 in the 1987-88 season? Duncan days so I'd forgive anyone for losing them from memory.

I can certainly remember us playing them one season.

Yes a Simon Milton hat-trick at Gay Meadow, no less.

We played there in the League Cup a few years ago. Won in extra time.

And I’m sure we drew them in the FA Cup at least twice in the 80s.

That's the season I watched my first Town game and when I first got into football. As a boy at the time, I had imagined that Shrewsbury had always been at that level.

I am sure I can remember a league match not too long after being relegated. John Duncan era may be about right.

Our bogey FA Cup team in the early 80's! First game featured on below link. They'd already knocked us out a season or two previous.



I can remember the 5-1 away with a Milton hat-trick and missing the return through chicken pox when Dalian scored a rasping free-kick (only home match missed between 83-92). Edit. I missed game with chicken pox, not Simon Milton.

Played them in the league cup in the early 90s too, winning over 2 legs.

And that was it until that penalty shoot out game a few years back.

I'm sure there would be plenty of obliging North Lincolnshire folk who'd give him a lift there.

I did see an headline today saying that bottom of the league isn’t what Hurst or the club/fans would have suspected when he was appointed.

Surprising that, as I’d have thought it was highly predictable.

I remember going to test the stat; that Shrewsbury had more pubs per percentage of population than any other place in the Country.

As a Shrew exciled in mid Suffolk for the past 12 years and with a wife and son with Portman Road season tickets I'm also somewhat excited about this. I think we drew 1-1 in the early 90's in the league cup before getting stuffed in the 2nd leg, and I was at the 3-3 in 2009 before we lost on penalties - that was one heck of a game, some absolute worldie goals, think Connor Wickham got a couple that night.

Fejiri Okenabirie, our most natural goalscorer is out, Norburn our best midfielder has not played yet this season and Williams probably our strongest defender was injured at MK Dons a few weeks ago so we're certainly struggling a bit. We've nonetheless looked very capable at the back with only three goals conceded but the key for us is whether our midfield show up. If they do we look a solid unit albeit often ponderous and uninspiring going forward.

I think we'll lose this one by the odd goal, but, hey ho, that's the life of a Shrewsbury fan, and mostly I'm just pleased I don't have a 400 mile round trip to games.

To be fair, there's a few weirdos on here still carry a torch for Famous Roy. Mullet over sometime, it really machs you wonder.

I’d expect Shrews to be a difficult nut to crack. They set up with 3 big solid central defenders and Dave Edwards plays the CDM role well as captain. Scoring has been their problem. Expect Morison (ex Millwall) and Shaun Whaley to cause us problems.

1983 - did you ever see Ipswich Town legend and good mate of mine, Andy Crane, in a Shrews shirt?

Great left peg and loved a tackle. He broke David Moyes leg in training, I believe. England U20's captain in the same team as Tony Adams too.

Please note: prior to hitting the post button, I've double checked for anything that could be construed as "Anti Semitic" and to the best of my knowledge it isn't. Anything deemed to be of a Xenophobic nature is therefore purely accidental or down to your own misconstruing.

Me neither.

I've had a word with Shaun Whalley and (if he gets on the pitch) Dan Udoh, and asked both of them to have a bad day......

Mr Ricketts won't pick up his phone.
