A terrifying display. Horrors at the back. And a lack of ghoul action at the other end. That’s the Halloween puns out the way.
I would like to put on record my thanks to Norwich City striker Nélson Oliveira. He has given Mick McCarthy possibly the easiest team talk of his career for the East Anglian Derby on Sunday (Sky Sports Football, 12pm).
If someone said to me in April we would be fifth in the table, top scorers in the league and thoroughly entertaining as we head into October, I would not have believed it.
Perhaps Ipswich can’t be described as convincing, but it’s back to winning ways.
I didn’t put myself through the misery of watching England last Friday and Monday. From recent experience, the national team either leaves you bored or disappointed at the moment – so I saved myself the bother.
The kids are alright.
Boring, boring Ipswich.
When one door closes, another one opens, as the saying goes.
Pre-season is a bit of a funny one. Play some nice stuff, win a few games, and fans give you a reality check: “It was only Drogheda, it was only Southend.”
Sports broadcaster Danny Kelly said Nottingham Forest were lucky to come up against a ‘limp lettuce’ of a side in the form of Ipswich Town in their successful bid to avoid the drop.
It’s time to lend a Town legend a helping hand.
A few hideous stats from the weekend’s defeat to Rotherham put the dampener on the superb win against Newcastle on Easter Monday.
What a great weekend! A decent performance at Burton — a scintillating one at home to Newcastle — and we’re mathematically safe from relegation.
I like to think I have a decent sense of humour — I’ve been had on April Fools Day on more than one occasion.
Just a few weeks ago, many were bemoaning the fact we looked set to finish the season mid table.
A PR disaster off the pitch, while our poor run continues on it. I’m seriously worried.
Season tickets at Town are going to be an incredibly hard sell this summer — especially after so many false dawns.
I was a teenager the last time Ipswich Town were able to get one over their East Anglian rivals, Norwich City.
It is when the chips are down that I think you really find out what your team is made of. And what on paper looked to be an incredibly tricky February is turning into quite a fruitful month.
If ever there was ever a time for a team to get back on track, it’s now. Calling February’s fixtures daunting is a bit of an understatement.
