Sounds Better in a Song
by OriginalMarkyP at 09:00 15 Aug 2018

We were looking for a manager and then we found a manager, but heaven knows (some of us) are miserable now.
Time To Simply Enjoy Being Ipswich Town
by WarkTheWarkITFC at 16:01 14 Aug 2018

Something incredibly strange happened to me on Saturday evening.
The Long Haul
by DazC at 22:17 3 Aug 2018

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.
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.

Hopes of Yet to Come

Here is a poem that I think sums up all fans' desires for next season.
Be Careful What You Wish For... Which Was?
by parkinshair at 11:41 23 Jul 2018

With the Paul Hurst era beginning in earnest in just a couple of weeks, so begins a new dawn, a new day, a new start, as the song goes. A change was needed.
Away Day Report: Barnet

I wake up at 6.44am.
Show ME, How You Do That Trick

“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope
by SpiritOfJohn at 13:53 30 Jun 2018

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.
End of Season Grades
by BlueBloke at 15:27 21 May 2018

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.
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.
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.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962
by clivebleedingthomas at 09:22 28 Apr 2018

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.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position
by BaltachaFanClub at 20:37 26 Apr 2018

I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
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:
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.
Wanted: An Inexperienced New Manager
by JollyJourno at 20:49 17 Apr 2018

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?
We ALL Need to Come Together, Right Now, Over Town
by IamSpartacus at 08:42 12 Apr 2018

This in-fighting is painful to see, read and hear. The Mick McCarthy was crap/great/boring/salvationesque claims are all true, and at the same time not. It is not binary.
Pragmatism Comes Before a Fall

So, he’s gone and we can all find out what it is we’ve been wishing for.
