Join sports writer Chris Brammer and Archant Suffolk’s chief football writer, Stuart Watson, as they discuss a difficult season for Ipswich Town in the Championship.

Having had time to reflect on a disappointing campaign that saw Town sign-off with their lowest league finish for 58 years, Chris and Stuart discuss what went wrong and what can be done to start putting things right.

Having covered the majority of the Blues game this season, Stuart also takes the chance to highlight the opposition players and teams that have impressed him this season, before listing his three wishes for the Blues come the start of the new campaign in August.


  • Morecambe and Wise. Pork and beans. Some good things are bound to go together. Regrettably, unfortunately, so do some trivial, uncouth, irrelevant, tasteless things. Like the two geezers pictured up top there. Like the two inane, missing-the-point, so-called scribblers, who struggle to make a living writing on this page. Like pundit and critique bloo. Well, actually, the last pair, being the same person, don't qualify. Even though she should.

  • It ain't rocket science, owner's BUST. If we stay up next year it'll be a miracle. You can't get a price yet on Town being relegated next year because of the play-offs but their 3rd from bottom for promotion at the moment so that tell's you they're predicted to be in the bottom 3 or 4 for relegation. Wait a bit and then "Go on boy", get yer money on em to go down!! ME & MM deserve nought else.

  • The hacks at the EADT will face a blanket ban from PR if they begin printing the whole truth about a club in freefall, with massive debts and operational losses. There are no assets apart from Bart. A friend of mine was banned as a scribe for the N.O.W from attending games at Man City for telling it the way it was in the mid 90's. Sadly, a critical friend is unwelcome at football clubs.

  • The EADT needs a massive clear out too. The club is effectively in a state of collapse with half a team and a discredited, want-away mismanager, a cabal of useless yes men who provide nothing and ensure no continuity, owned by asset strippers who effectively use the club for money laundering. All the EADT scribes do in response is waffle trite nonsense in print or silly mind-numbing videos. Awful. Sack the lot of them
