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.

Fatigue or apathy for the Town boys vs Watford and Middlesbrough?

"To play eight games in a month is a punishing schedule... I know people don't want to hear about highly-paid footballers being tired, but both teams have put a lot of effort in and I think the first half was just a flat game.

Town's first 3 points of the season are an absolute relief.
When the fixture list came out in June there was a real consideration that we may not pick up any points for the first 3 games of the season.
I hoped for a draw against Blackburn, but did not expect it, and I fully envisaged us coming home from Watford empty handed: how could we dare to think about anything else against the 'bogey team'!

As Town kicked off the second half of Saturday's 'East Anglian derby' (of sorts), I was heading off to Manchester for the evening.

But fear not, fellow Blue Andy Cross has offered to fill in with a truly honest report on the game as he saw it:

Hoping to avenge for the 7-1 mauling at the hands of the Posh in August, Paul Jewell made just one change from the impressive 2-2 draw against Hull last weekend; bringing in Lee Martin for the unfortunate Jason Scotland.

His side was 2-0 down and staring down the barrel of an eight consecutive league defeat. Incredibly, they hit five goals during the second half as they staged the most unlikely of comebacks.

Harsh lessons to learn for Cardiff after second successive playoff failure

SoccerLens at related • 1 view

It is back to the drawing board for Cardiff City following their second successive failure in the Championship playoffs.

The Bluebirds' 3-0 aggregate defeat to Reading in last week's semi-final was a bitter pill to swallow for the supporters, particularly with their side still well in with a shout of automatic promotion just days before the season finale.

This season has seen unprecedented league success for my club Cardiff City. The Bluebirds currently find themselves in fourth place of the Championship with a decent shot at promotion to the Premier League. However, rather than feeling excited at the prospect of potential promotion, this season has been one of the most frustrating and unenjoyable I can remember in my time as a Cardiff City supporter.

QPR's 1-0 victory at Doncaster on Saturday left them nine points clear of second-placed Norwich City and, notwithstanding any possible points deduction from the FA for the signing of Alejandro Faurlin, poised to return to the top flight for the first time since 1996. Yet whilst Neil Warnock's side have undoubtedly been the Championship's outstanding side all season the question of who will join them in the Premier League next season is as unresolved as ever.

With a team that boasts the likes of Jay Bothroyd, Michael Chopra and Peter Whittingham many would have thought that throwing last season's best Premiership player into the starting 11 would see Cardiff City run away with the league.

Talk about shots across the bow!

Cardiff City striker Michael Chopra has vowed to walk out of the club if they fail to bring in some new faces over the remainder of the summer break.

Cardiff are mired in financial problems and have only made two fairly low key signings this summer in the shape of young Manchester United pair Tom Heaton and Daniel Drinkwater (with the latter having only joining on loan) and Chopra has now told the South Wales Echo that, unless there are some big-name additions made by the club's board, he will be on his merry way;

It's difficult to find any negatives in Town's signing of Elliott Hewitt.

He's young, a defender in a position we need back up for and a good prospect for the future. Isn't that great?!

His arrival at Town is easy to compare to our Player of the Year for 2011/2012 Aaron Cresswell: he's young, from a lower league and highly rated: former boss and ex-Macclesfield manager Gary Simpson sent a message to Town fans in the EADT: 'if he continues to play as he has done he'll make it to the Premiership, without a doubt'.
