I say this with the greatest of respect to the new regime at Ipswich Town, but brace yourselves - this voyage could get a little bumpy.
|Blog ||A New Team|
by bbg at 21:53 3 Aug 2018
It was very obvious long before the end of last season we would be starting the season tomorrow with new management. However, as it gets closer to the transfer deadline next week, it is now looking possible that we could surprisingly also be seeing a team almost entirely changed from the previous year.

Here is a poem that I think sums up all fans' desires for next season.

“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”

As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.

Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
|Blog ||TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land|
by monty_radio at 13:17 10 May 2018
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
|Blog ||Away Day Report: Reading|
by BlueBloke at 23:28 28 Apr 2018
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.

As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
|Blog ||Missing Mick|
by SpiritOfJohn at 08:37 21 Apr 2018
Just like Jonas Knudsen I find myself pining for the good old days of the Mick McCarthy era. This current wave of optimism sweeping over the club must surely end soon and come crashing down around us. One day, maybe sooner maybe later, you will also feel some nostalgia for those halcyon days under McCarthy. With these thoughts in mind, here is a tribute to the great man and his legacy:
|Blog ||Managerial Musings|
by monty_radio at 18:19 19 Apr 2018
With new manager speculation at fever pitch and so many alluring names who may have thrown their hats into some alleged ring, or perhaps been bumped up in the odds due to a flurry of misplaced fivers, it’s time to step back and assess the relevant claims of the hopefuls.
|Blog ||Wanted: An Inexperienced New Manager|

Usually the top attribute any employer looks for in a new recruit to their organisation is experience. Experience of doing a job at the same level, and a track record of success at that level, should surely be a guarantee of similar outcomes at a similar-sized organisation, right?
