Icelandic Crime Writer on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 17th Nov 2017 19:19
Life’s a Pitch is live on BBC Radio Suffolk at lunchtime on Saturday and sees host Mark Murphy, legend-in-residence Kevin Beattie, New Tractorboy and TWTD’s Phil Ham, who will be at the KCOM Stadium ahead of the game against Hull City, joined by Icelandic crime writer and Town supporter of 44 years standing Óskar Guðmundsson, who will be about to see the Blues in action live for the very first time (12-2pm).
Guðmundsson, whose 2015 debut novel Hilma was highly-acclaimed and won awards in Iceland, is in the UK for Hull Noir, a week-long crime-writing festival exploring the best of British and international crime fiction, which coincides neatly with the Blues’ game at the KCOM Stadium.
Can Town build on the 3-0 win at home to Preston at Hull and make Óskar’s afternoon? Can the Blues maintain their play-off push? Give us your thoughts on those questions or anything else via email, Mark’s Twitter or during the show by phone on 01473 212121 or text to 81333 starting your message with SFK.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also now on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
