Ipswich v Norwich of the North

In Ipswich Town, Jimmy Juan, Reading, Sheffield Utd on January 14, 2006 at 6:48 pm

Ipswich Town were very unlucky not to have won today against Sheffield Utd at Portman Road. A late equaliser robbed us of the 3pts. the referee wasn’t bad but he didn’t keep up with play and missed the clear foul on Lee which would have meant a free kick to us rather than Norwich of the North.

Oh well I feared the worse before the game and I had predicted a3-1 win to Sheffield. However they were rather disappointing . I have seen most clubs in the Championship now and clearly Reading are the best side. I am not sure about Sheffield they are well clear in 2nd place and should go up but they rely heavily on some experienced hard men . I hope someone else catches them – in fact anyone apart from Norwich of course! What is it with Warnock has he got a screw loose?

At the end of the game he stormed on to the pitch and headed toward the North Stand where he got plenty of abuse for his dirty tactics. In fact I think he may well end up in hot water with the FA for his strange behaviour. Richard Naylor had to be restrained for politely telling him where to go.

Anyway this was a good game capped by a great goal from Jimmy Juan from a free kick – an unstoppable shot went in of the cross bar and bounced up into the net. Look out for this goal it was a cracker. The Sheffield goal they scored was rather fortunate – poor defending and a soft goal to give away. Having said that Sheffield could have been 2-0 up at half time. However second half we finally went to a 4-4-2 formation bringing on Danny Haynes to partner Alan Lee on his debut and we looked on top.

What a pity not to get the three points we deserved.
