What is it about Ipswich this season? Today’s 2-1 away to Derby is the third away match in a row that Town have lost in injury time. Something has got to change…at least I’m hoping to see a change for the better. But I’m not going to hold my breath. Town still owe a lot of money to banks. So, there’s no money to bring players in. The best young players are being sold to bigger clubs to cover the debt. About half the first team squad right now are players on loan to Ipswich. How far can you get when you rent rather than own? It’s going to be a long time before we see my boys back in the Premership.
Of course, the conspiracy theorist in me might think that staying in the Championship is intentional. After all, the restructuring of debt was contingent on paying things off once Town get promoted. That is still a long way off. At least Setanta shows a few of their matches so I’m not completely reliant on highlights streamed from the internet.
