|Town Closing in On Garbutt Loan|
Friend of mine is an Oxford fan and he would’ve loved to have seen him back after last year. Brought in as a left back he was much improved playing in a forward role as a left winger
|Town to Learn Two EFL Trophy Opponents Today|
Although it may well seem tinpot to some. The danger of not taking this or any cup competition seriously can have a effect on morale. In any sport winning is a habit, the same as losing can be. We want to be aiming at winning this tournament as well well as aiming for promotion. Success breeds success, the same can happen the other way if not careful

Walters joined Ipswich on loan from Burnley in August 2018 just in time to feature against Norwich, score a 93rd minute volley and celebrate by “Kuqi diving” into the Lower Sir Bobby Robson Stand. Following this, he single-handedly brought Ipswich up to the premiership in the 2018/19 season after scoring a hat trick against Derby in the play-off final.

This decision ranks up with the penalty decision given by Bob Hamer against Liverpool in ‘93.
|Young Town XI at AFC Sudbury|
2-0 to the Young Towen lads. Great breakaway. First shot saved, simple tap in finish.
Apparently lad sent off is on trial from a team in France, think he’ll be heading back via Dover as soon as the game is finished
|Young Town XI at AFC Sudbury|
1-0 up at half time, but down to 10 men. Someone had a hissy fit it seems, didn’t see it as was getting a burger, which is rather pleasent.
|Dozzell in Strong U21s Side at Sudbury|
AFC Sudbury 5 Ipswich 4.
Mick Mac was there and he should be shocked and ashamed at our defence. Sudbury did not create a real chance yet we conceded 5 goals. If this is our back up then I'm seriously worried. Our lad No 11 looked awesome though.
|Wolves Trip Live on Sky|
In the 1960s, controversial Burnley F.C. Chairman Bob Lord successfully convinced fellow Football League Chairmen that televised matches on a Saturday afternoon would have a negative effect on the attendances of other football league games that were not being televised and as a result reduce their financial income.
As a result, The FA, Premier League and Football League do not want English matches to be televised live between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday within the United Kingdom. Until recently, the FA Cup Final was an exception and had been broadcast at 3pm on a Saturday in May; however, in 2012, the FA Cup Final was moved to 5pm.
In February 2011, Advocate General Kokott of the European Court of Justice opined that the "closed periods" did not encourage match attendance at other league games.
It is, in fact, doubtful whether closed periods are capable of encouraging attendance at matches and participation in matches. Both activities have a completely different quality to the following of a live transmission on television. It has not been adequately shown to the Court that the closed periods actually encourage attendance at and participation in matches. Indeed, there is evidence to refute this claim: for example, in an investigation of the closed periods under competition law the Commission found that only 10 of 22 associations had actually adopted a closed period. No closed periods were adopted in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, or in Northern Ireland, that is to say, within the sphere of influence of English football.

To avoid this blackout, the last day of the Premier League, when all ten games must kick-off simultaneously, is always played on a Sunday. Championship (second tier) last day fixtures used to be always on a Sunday at 12.30pm but are now always on a Saturday at 12.30pm.
Live radio broadcasts are permitted, both nationally and locally; these may be simulcast on the internet, depending on the broadcaster. Viewers outside the UK can still watch these games live on foreign broadcasters, thus creating somewhat of a grey market within the UK with viewers able to subscribe to or watch streams of foreign channels.
The Premier League and Sky maintain that, while grey market viewing of games is not illegal on the part of the viewer, it is illegal for anyone (such as a public house) to make such services openly available. This has in the past lead to heavy fines for public houses in the United Kingdom which have shown 3pm games in their establishments. More recently, the legality of such fines has been disputed, and a number of Crown Court cases have been reported in which publicans successfully challenged the Premier League's position.
In recent years, Sky Sports has shown 3pm games on tape delay on their Football First show, either in full or as extended highlights.

|Southampton 1-1 Town - Match Report|
Great result against a high flying team, whose recent exploits against Chelsea and the gooners show what ability they have. Massive bonus for me is that the replay is on a Wednesday. I might actually be able to make a game for once! Always work Saturdays and Tuesday's!!!!
|Arsenal Again Linked With Mings Move|
If you look at the history of players who leave Ipswich to go onto so called better careers, not many make that much of a success of things. Mick and the board have now managed to get the club back into the mould of the days of the Cobblds. A family club where everyone looks out for one another. It shows so much in the team spirit shown on Saturday.
For Mings to leave now, although he may get a massive, massive pay rise. Would he play every week, would he enjoy sitting around doing nothing, but playing reserve team football. I believe he could step up but he is still raw and nowhere the finished article yet. Keep him, tell Wenger to jog on, and let's build on what we've got and get back to the promised land.
|McCarthy: We'll Keep On Scrapping Away|
Will people stop having a go at our keepers! As an ex keeper, my body doesn't like me anymore, the biggest thing that can affect a keeper is lack of confiedence. If Gerks reads this from so called fans, it isn't going to help.
Back him up and shut the **** up
