I am an Ipswich supporter who loves every aspect of our beautiful game. I am at present looking into the reasons why a club have a certain identity, colour or badge and the historical implications of the area around that club.
Everton are a brilliant club that I love to visit, and I believe that your badge is a local watchtower in the local area. What intrigues me is your nickmane the Toffees. It is such a distinctive nickname, and with Everton being one of the oldest clubs in existence a historical explanation must exist. Your input would be appreciated. Good Luck next year.

Your club has a proud history, and you’re still going places.
Just like us. Enjoy.

A bit odd but I also used to had a Dutch Uhlenbeek shirt.

Mind you we did have the last laugh as we won 2-1at Goodison in the 5th round of the Cup a month later. During that season - in March 1980 I think - Ipswich beat Man Utd 6-0 at Portman Road - and missed two penalties - so it could have been worse for Utd who were I think top of the league at that time!!!The Ipswich manager at that time was Bobby Robson and he nearly became Everton manager twice ? in 1973 and in 1977.
Gary, I think you will find that a lot of Evertonians have a great respect for Ipswich ? your team has over many years (at least since the late 1960?s and the Bobby Robson era) had a well deserved reputation for playing attractive football. I hope that you get back to the Premier League very soon.

Got hit on the head by a brick in 1986 I think FA Cup replay, then got bitten by a police dog whilst on the ground.
I hate Ipswich.
