Colin, a viewer of the Talking Town podcast messaged the show to say ‘never has he been so embarrassed as a Town fan.’ I sadly cannot help but agree.

The cold reality is that this is the result of 13 long, hard years under the previous owner. This is what 13 years of underfunding eventually does to you. I can’t wait for the summer of exciting change. I can’t wait to wave goodbye to some of these players and start a new brighter chapter as an Ipswich Town fan.
