I find it hard to believe that you were at the same game as I was last night. In
my only slightly biased opinion, the match was entertaining and the standard
of play by Ipswich was high - only Tim Flowers and the wood-work prevented
an avalanche of goals. Maybe Southampton looked like they may struggle this
season, but that was only due to the fact that they were not allowed to play
by the opposition. Town knocked the ball about well, battled hard, looked solid
in defence and, in general, sharp up front. What more can you ask for?
If all the Town's home matches are as entertaining, I will consider my
160 pound season ticket to be a bargain,
