A Christmas miracle as Town score three….

Hallelujah!  Town win away, score three and even Jonny Williams got a rare start.  Christmas came early for Town fans at Wigan and let’s hope the festive cheer extends beyond Boxing Day and we finally see back-to-back wins with a victory over Fulham.

Merry Christmas to followers of the Fuller Flavour.

Enough is enough now….

One point from two more games in the past few days…..and enough really is enough now.

The long-suffering Ipswich Town fans that have had the heart and soul ripped out of their club deserve better.  We need to hear from Marcus Evans, we need to see a change and defeat at Wigan on Saturday will see us right in the mix of an unthinkable relegation battle.

There is of course over half a season to turn things around and not have any of those worries.  But we can only base our fears on what’s actually happened thus far and not what MIGHT happen.  Dark days indeed at Portman Road…..

Groundhog Day it would seem….

Just as we had the defeat against Nottingham Forest to follow a win at Sheffield Wednesday, we had Saturday’s lacklustre defeat at Bristol City to follow victory over QPR.  Will we see back-to-back wins all season?  Not much more to say this week really is there…..

Fuller Flavour 5 December 2016– Ah yes, a visit from Ipswich was just what Bristol needed…..Wrong date but happy memories…..Rovers thrashed – and it’s 50 up for Warky!*

Much better from Town….

Saturday’s victory over QPR was much better for the Portman Road faithful to witness.  Never mind the three goals and the clean sheet, just the amount to applaud overall made the road a much better place to be in general for a change.  Let’s hope that we can keep this type of performance going now moving forward.

Last season, my daughter Angel (pictured below) went to the QPR game and she witnessed us win with a last-minute winner from Luke Chambers.  So I just knew that I had to take her to see the same opposition and we won agaiAngel who enjoys watching Ipswich against both QPR and Ian Hollowayn.  I’m not superstitious at all!  Also, those of you who remember when she was a mascot two seasons ago might recall that the opposition that day was Millwall and Ian Holloway was in charge of the Lions that day.  As we won that game and Holloway was back in Town as QPR boss, I just knew that with Angel present, a win was always the most likely outcome.

Struggling to win? Can’t keep a clean sheet? Then let us help you out!

It’s a few days since the Forest game and I’m still angry at what was dished up.  As the current trend of Saturday home games sees us somehow being worse than the last (just when you think things cannot get any worse), it makes this Saturday’s home game against QPR really appealing – not!  And are we the most charitable club in the league?  We always seem to be on hand to help a team out of a rut.

Berra adds to list of England v Scotland Blues…

Last Friday night saw Christophe Berra become the 10th Ipswich player to play in an England v Scotland game.  How many can you name?

This week’s Fuller Flavour column looks back at the games, appearances and goals from those Town players that have featured in this fixture.  Also, a look ahead to our forthcoming game against Nottingham Forest on Sky TV this weekend and another game without a win in 1991/92 remembered.

Wednesday was good, but other days ahead need to improve too…

A great win at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and let’s sincerely hope that it is the start of better things to come from Town.  This week’s column looks back at the weekend but with caution that this one result does not make everything rosy again – far from it.

Also, good to see Town the chosen subject of Phil Boor on Mastermind last Friday night and a fifth consecutive draw remembered in 1991/92*.

Fuller Flavour – 7 November 2016– A great result but please don’t think everything is rosy now…..Phil does well with questions on Mastermind…..and An enthralling end-to-end game, despite it being another draw.*
