Mariner - legend returns

Tuesday 23rd March, Ipswich Town 0 Plymouth Argyle 2

Paul Mariner returns a true Town legend and playing for us? Some who did not seem bothered, very few showed any skill- Pablo was one of only 4 who played OK

A bridge over the Orwell

Saturday 20th March 2010, Ipswich 1 Barnsley 0

Rubbish second half but a much needed win.

Went across the Sir Bobby Robson bridge, pity the developers, Fairview cannot or have not put up a sign by the bridge.

Watford do the double

Tuesday 17th March - Watford 2 Ipswich Town 1
Wednesday 18th March Ipswich Town Reserves 0 Watford Reserves 2

A nice evening on the outskirts of North London ruined by a poor game of football, and then a warm March afternoon in Ipswich not much better, as even their Reserves beat us ( strange watching a game in a 30,000 seat stadium with only 40 other hardy souls!)

Programme shop- a blast from the past!

10 v 10

Saturday 13th March 2010 - Ipswich Town 1 Scunthorpe United 0

Poor Ref, negative Scunthorpe, and we end up with 10 v 10, but a 16 year old saves the day - and now do we look up or keep loking down?

Never seems cold when winning!

Tuesday 9th March 2010 Ipswich Town 2 Cardiff City 0

Funny how it never seems cold at a night game, when your winning - must have been freezing for those Welsh fans - and they had a long trip home on top of a poor display.

We don't like to be by the Seaside!

Saturday 6th March 2010 - Blackpool 1 Ipswich Town 1 - Championship

Well the ground may have 3 real stands now but the away fans are still stuck on temporary seating on one side of the ground, fortunately for us, it was a sunny March day so we did not end up getting soaked. that would have been even more galling as we sat next to the empty Jimmy Armfield Stand.

Blackpool themselves are in a hurry to get this new stand open as the game was a sell out for home fans. One plus point from that is you get a number of neutrals sitting with the away fans, we had a family from Sunderland behind us (not that keen on our Roy) and in front of us a number of Glasgow Rangers fans. Not sure they will be rushing back to see Ipswich play, yet again a performance that left many of us not sure in what direction we are heading.

What I did manage to get on my trip was a picture of the Stan Mortensen statue at the Bloomfield Road ground.
