An Uncomfortable Truth
by TBT at 16:27 22 Feb 2018

The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.

This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not!
by delias_cheesy_flaps at 16:22 20 Feb 2018

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Identity Crisis
by andygri at 15:06 15 Feb 2018

As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.

Pre-Derby Hope and Hype
by TimS at 23:56 14 Feb 2018

I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.

Stuck in a Moment, and Now We Can't Get Out of It!

Yesterday's result at the Macron against Bolton and the subsequent press conference with Mick McCarthy reminds me of the U2 song- Stuck in a Moment. Marcus Evans:

As the latest episode of teeth gnashing and breast rending progresses we Ipswich Town supporters need to ask ourselves what kind of fan we want to be.

'Twas the Night Before Transfers
by monty_radio at 20:23 22 Dec 2017

‘Twas the night before Transfers, when all thro’ the house,
Not a rumour was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Marcus would surely be there;
Academy boys nestled snug in their beds,
While visions of Carabao danced in their heads.

Five Talking Points from Reading

They say Christmas is the season of love and understanding. As we arrive at the halfway point of the campaign, I'd say that sounds about right.

Some Mid-Season Thoughts
by Steve_M at 09:29 18 Dec 2017

Is this the second best Town team under Marcus Evans? It is certainly starting to look that way, we have regained many of the elements that helped make us so successful in 2014/15: energy in midfield, pressing the opposition further forward, effective set-pieces and most importantly goals.

Five Points Off the Play-Offs and Mick Keeps Rolling Along
by SpiritOfJohn at 21:07 12 Dec 2017

If Mick had gone for the win on Teesside and picked up another three points, I suspect that Marcus Evans would have been instructing his team of overworked lawyers to draw up a new contract for the incumbent manager.

Phoenix From the Flames
by SaleAway at 15:37 17 Nov 2017

The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

Have I Really Fallen Out of Love With Ipswich Or Have I Just Grown Up?

Most parents use pets to teach children important life lessons. Children become acutely aware of the concepts of growing old and death as they bury their beloved hamster in the back garden.

Hark Now Hear - This is Our Time
by Pickersblue22 at 21:27 19 Oct 2017

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.

The Entertainment is Back, and So Am I

First up, a confession. I didn't attend a single Ipswich Town game last season. It was the first season in about a decade that I completely sat out.
