Nearly a decade on from that fateful day at St. James' Park, former Newcastle winger Kieron Dyer has lifted the lid on his infamous on-pitch altercation with teammate Lee Bowyer during a game against Aston Villa back in 2005.

As the play went on up-field, Dyer and Bowyer came to blows in the middle of the pitch during Newcastle's 0-3 defeat and whilethe incident has reached a fairly high level of notoriety among footballing circles, the exact reason for the tussle had never been divulged.

Paul Jewell

Saying goodbye to 2011/2012

The Diary of a Tractor Girl at related • 0 views
With West Ham's promotion to the Premier League yesterday, the 2011/2012 Championship season finally came to an end. Despite having had three weeks to mull over Ipswich Town's year, I still haven't come to a conclusion on how I feel about it. It's been disappointing, that much is clear. But even the pessimistic of fans would be hard pressed to deny that we (when I say we I man Paul Jewell) have learnt a few lessons and the side HAS progressed form this time 12 months ago.

Always look on the #twitfc side of life!

A win from Town today would see the Blues getting three great results from what we thought would be the three hardest games of the season: Middlesbrough, West Ham and Brighton.

What a wonderful time it is to be a Town fan!

I was speaking to @FelsedBoy this morning and he quite delightfully described today as 'feeling like the first of the season, with the glorious weather and the feeling of hope in Ipswich'.

Ipswich Town see off Sky Blues and 'Sky Curse'

The Diary of a Tractor Girl at related • 0 views
Over the years, the Tractor Boys have become notorious for getting stage fright when the Sky cameras come to visit.

And with the two most recent televised games ending in heavy defeats - last night was the night to emulate Cardiff Away rather than Narwich at Home.

I just had this feeling in my bones that yesterday would be the day the pieces of the jigsaw came together for Town, and I was right.

Cech: Chelsea apprehensive about Brum

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech wants his teammates to revive their deteriorating campaign by winning at home to Birmingham City in the FA Cup tomorrow a feat that he realizes won't be easy to accomplish.

Birmingham suffered relegation last year but the Championship outfit has managed to become somewhat of a cup specialist, claiming the Carling Cup at Arsenal's expense at Wembley 12 months ago and now looking to send another London club packing out of the FA Cup.

Who's Looking Good?

Leicester: Having massively overhauled the squad during the summer, signing no less than nine players, including the marquee signings of Kasper Schmeichel, David Nugent, Michael Johnson, Neil Danns and Paul Konchesky should give the Foxes the quality needed to reach the Premiership for the first time since 2002.

Following his release from Birmingham City, Lee Bowyer has been handed a one-year contract by Championship club Ipswich Town.

Alex McLeish has kept his job at St. Andrew's, despite Birmingham's last-day relegation to the Championship, but has been told by the board that he must lead the side back to the Premiership.

The Blues went down, due to a defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane and other results not going their way, and there were rumours that Birmingham City owner Carson Yueng would sack the Scotsman.

Birmingham City are heading to their first Wembley Final for 55 years after beating West Ham 4-3 on aggregate in their Carling Cup semi-final. Birmingham will play Arsenal in the final on the 27 February.

Birmingham City And The Definition Of Malicious Intent

Arsene Wenger has talked a lot about tackling. Invariably the discussion gets hijacked by clueless hacks and pundits who convert that into an Arsenal V Rest of the League debate and take pride in highlighting one or two poor tackles by Arsenal players.

According to a number of morons who have the privilege of influencing public opinion, Arsenal are just as bad as any other team when it comes to tackling.

Birmingham 0-3 Arsenal: A perfect start to the new year

Arseblog at related • 1 view

I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that the first game of 2011 is a sign of things to come for this year. A good win, three goals, a clean sheet and the best response against a team who went over the edge a little bit physically.

Apart from one Fabianski save from a first half Seb Larsson free kick I don't remember the Arsenal goalkeeper having to do much at all beyond come for a few crosses and corners which he did solidly.

I guess the two teams used up all the goals and excitement last year because yesterday, the controversial incidents apart, it was a snoozefest of a game, with little in the way of highlights.

All the talk this morning will be of the red card, the red card that should have been and the other red card that should have been.

Lee Bowyer charged with violent conduct against Sagna

Soccerblog at related • 1 view

Lee Bowyer is a nasty piece of work. The FA correctly slapped a three match ban on him for stamping on Bacary Sagna with malicious intent to hurt as clearly shown in the picture. He was also guilty of raking his studs down Sagna's Achilles heel on two separate occasions. It was clear as daylight on the pitch and it should have resulted in a straight red card but the referee and linesman either missed it or chose to ignore it.

The commentators said that the difference between the two sides was the fact that Arsenal made it count when it mattered, as opposed to Birmingham. We have been on the receiving end of the same for a long time and it was nice to see a change. Is this for real or is it just blip in our rather abysmal consistently inconsistent graph?

It was here at St Andrews that our title challenge crumbled in the 07/08 season. This was the same setting in which the career of the prolific striker ended. Not forgetting this was also one of the toughest away games of the season as Birmingham have only lost once in well over a season and managed to peg Manchester United back in the recent midweek game.

Cracking start to the second half of the season as Arsenal coasted to a win in the hostile environs of St Andrews.

But they turned in a scintillating performance against a club that has only lost once in 29 other occasions at home.

Could there be trouble ahead with Town's latest signing? Or will Bowyer bring the success we've all being waiting patiently for?

The Diary of a Tractor Girl at related • 0 views
This summer Ipswich Town have been 'linked' to so many footballers I think I've lost count; but this time last week the name being thrown about on Twitter made my blood run cold.

Seven days later we have signed Lee Bowyer, chequered history and all. But was it the right move?

The debate on Twitter has been interesting to say the least; when I offered my opinion on him I was ridiculed for being childish and judgemental, being told to 'grow up' and 'give him a break'.
