How's about that then guys and gals?
Town came from behind (no bum intended) and wiped 'Dirty Leeds' away with our biggest victory of the season so far.
It was the sort of afternoon that we haven't witnessed for a few years at Portman Road, a great game, great result, all mixed in with some daring to dream, plenty of banter and an exchange of insults between both sets of supporters. My season ticket is proving to be good value this season.
As usual there was the strong vocal following from Yorkshire - eighteen hundred and thirty-five of them. We had the usual 'We all hate Leeds' song, along with the non pc 'He's one of your own, he's one of your own, Jimmy Saville, he's one of your own' and 'He could your dad...' don't know where that came from? Goodness gracious
As it 'appens, Sharon missed Mirco Antenucci's fourth minute goal which gave the visitors a shock early lead (she was still in Planet Blue buying Christmas presents!) It was a sloppy goal to concede, from what has become a real solid defence of late. Just for a little while there I wondered if the blue bubble had burst - stupid boy!
Fear not, Daryl Murphy levelled things up with a towering header just eight minutes later. David McGoldrick then put us ahead from the penalty spot in the twenty-sixth minute, that after Stephen Warnock's clumsy challenge on Paul Anderson in the box.
Murphy sent the fans into the half-time break even more happy after he scored his second goal of the afternoon, which makes him the leagues top marksman on thirteen for the season so far. What a turnaround that half was.
The second half started as the first half had ended - with Ipswich scoring, Christophe Berra this time, tapping in Tommy Smiths goal bound header, just to make sure!
From then on it was all Ipswich, truth be told we probably should have scored a couple more goals, our football certainly deserved it. There were plenty of 'ole's' from the crowd as Town passed the ball around with ease, at times taking the piss out of Leeds with fancy flicks and tricks.
The win keeps us in second place and we're now six points above seventh spot in the league, which is probably the more realistic way to look at things, or is it? Now then, now then!
