I remember Boro playing against County many moons ago one Xmas period in the new (at the time) Riverside Stadium. I was up in Middlesbrough over the Christmas time and managed to see a couple of home matches. I recall beating County but didn't realise County had fallen through the leagues so far since then... Looks like they may be on the way back but it must be a hard ladder to climb!!! :thumbup:
Well done County!

Ipswich is doomed,even the fans are starting to accept that. The owner is an incredibly rich man who uses the club to reduce his tax bill. If you take into account the loans to him then Ipswich Town are a basket case. A sad state of affairs for a team that can count Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson amongst its long term managers.

The fans turned on the last manager who had worked miracles with little money. They then got a manager from a lower division who was given peanuts to buy in new players. They now have the man who took Norwich City down to League 1 (not all his fault) and back to the Championship the following season. I always knew Lambert would walk out on us when he got a supposedly better offer which he did. I can only hope he does not get a better offer in the next couple of years and gets Ipswich back into the Championship. But he will need all his skill and probably more money than he gets to do it and match Norwich City's performance since the black year we were in League One
Sorry to hear that. Sounds like a recipe for disaster!!! Careful Ipswich Town FC don't get relegated and then just keep falling...!
I wonder if he smiled (one of those typical Mick McCarthy smiles) when he heard "The Tractor Boys" were relegated?: https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/mick- ... s-downfall :crazy:

No, he is not one of the Canary fans who hate Ipswich. More a feeling of sadness in the owner they have compared to Norwich City's

Couple it with "how many seasons can Norwich stay in the Premier League?"

Well done Sheffield Utd such a pity it happened when none of your fans were present. Norwich had the fairy tale version, promotion in a home game. Sadly Championship Champion will be decided at an away match but at least the hard core fans who can actually afford to travel will be there.

Mathematically Shef. Utd. could still be crowned Champs of the Championship over and above Norwich!!!

Well done Norwich, finishing in style and Premiership bound along with Sheffield Utd. who weren't as polished.

Well done Derby for getting the 6th play-offs place but the battle has only just begun for you.

Interesting point to see Leeds Utd. beaten again by a lowly team, this time already relegated Ipswich - what a way to leave the Championship for Ipswich.

As for Boro, starting the season as favourites was the kiss of death! Well there's always next season but my guess is there will be a number of changes before then!!!
