  • Billy: We all know what you're trying to say and it has nothing to do with the size of our ground. By the way, it's 'premiership' my friend.

  • Actually Billy the average attendance for the 5 home televised games is 26,533. Some 500 short of capacity. The average attendance without the cameras is 26,520. You see Billy, it makes little difference whether Sky or ESPN are at Carrow Road, the fans still come in their thousands. Why let the small matter of facts stand in the way of a clever comment. You would be better spending you time trying to formulate a plan to encourage 1p5wich fans to attend home matches. Is it true that Portman Road is the only ground where the stewards throw people in?

  • Grammar Nazis R Us eh? Attack the argument, not the man. It's a pain when these games are rescheduled no doubt, especially away games. It cost me £200 to go to wolves away! but still it is money for our club, which at the moment I for one am confident will be spent well.

  • OK, so let's take what you say seriously Billy and accept that you are not an Ipswich fan. So, if you are an NCFC supporter why are you so angry with the club which is having it's best run in the last 20 years? If you are not, why are you here?

  • 1) Things will only get worse when we have to rearrange fixtures for European games. 2) How else wil we afford Torres or Tevez? 3) How else do non season ticket holders get to see City play exceppt on telly 4) Mr Murdoch is softening us up for a take over when he quits the Sun 5) A night out in Newcastle when you could watch Ipswich on the Saturday now.

  • With the game against Wigan now being on March 11th at 4pm, we've got consecutive weeks when we're the 4pm Sunday kick-off. It would be nice if we got a bit more warning from Sky, as I'm sure there must be many others who had planned on a Saturday night out in Newcastle. Also, does the club have to pay the 'Sanders' drivers extra because it's a Sunday away game?
