Ipswich Town v Derby County. WHAT A FIXTURE.

Was it vs Derby that Paul Cooper saved about 40 retaken penalties? Or was that Bolton? Fairiy sure it was Derby early 80s.

Any of you guys at that game as spotty teenagers?

Likewise, I had pencilled this game in as my next one after Bristol Rovers! Ironically it is not too far from by birthday as well! :D
I work Friday evenings so that is one game I will have to scrub off!!

Marko
Yes it was Derby and the date was 29th March 1980. It’s not a case of me having a great memory but I missed the game because I was otherwise engaged. At kickoff time the engaged bit changed to married. :wink:

I was at the game too Marko not as a teenager but hanging onto my 20’s albeit only by the skin of my teeth. As Shed has said the game was against Derby and Paul Cooper was the Penalty Save King of English football and that season alone saved 8 of 10 penalties. I’m not sure what his career record was but it’s certainly worth looking up. That day he saved two one at each end, I’m not sure who the penalty taker would have been for Derby those days. Those were the best days of my life for football, I got my first season ticket at Portman Road 1976/77 Season and never missed a home game for years until I moved away from Essex.

All I could think of was Alan Hinton but that must have been a previous era. I can remember Gery Daly but don’t recall Barry Powell.

Can’t say I’m a great lover of Friday Night football but I guess I’ll have to watch it. Just hope we’re still going strong and somewhere near the top of the table both before and after the game.

Just bought my ticket, didn't realise they would be on sale so soon.

If any fancy a meet up, think Bluemike mentioned c*ck & Pye but open to suggestions.

Hopefully be in Town for early afternoon, only manage to get there once in a while so making the most lol.

I’ll be at the game too, can’t wait! When I booked on Monday there wasn’t much choice left in the Magnus stand.

Just seen news that Warne is possibly heading to Derby, so could be in place for this game. Wierd thing is my last game was Rotherham at our place end of last season, hopefully we can give him a bit of payback.

If we want to win the League we have to get used to it cos the more successful we are the more often they will want to show our games. Apart from that the camera angles and coverage is so superior to anything ifollow can deliver albeit I’m 1000% grateful for tho job they do and the price they charge.
