It’s the start of a fortnight for fans to fester on Ipswich Town’s current state of affairs – and we want to hear from you.

The Blues are now just five points above the Championship drop zone following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Cardiff City and manager Mick McCarthy concedes his team are in a ‘relegation scrap’ with eight games to play.

It capped a bad 48 hours for Blues fan after they received the news last Friday that the club was putting up adult season ticket prices by 1.5%.

Town have won just two of their 16 games across all competitions this calender year. Following this weekend’s international break they face fellow-strugglers Birmingham (18th) and Wigan (23rd) at Portman Road.

Then comes Fulham (a), Burton (a), Newcastle (h), Rotherham (a), Sheffield Wednesday (h) and Nottingham Forest (a).

Ipswich Town have been in the top two tiers of English football for 60 successive seasons. Their lowest second-tier finishes in that time are 16th (1959), 15th (1966, 2006, 2010, 2012) and 14th (1991, 2007, 2013).

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at rock-bottom Rotherham yesterday. Blues reporter Stuart Watson gives his verdict.

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at Rotherham United in a Championship match on Saturday. Here’s your Blues analysis.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has no regrets over making wholesale changes to his team for this afternoon’s 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Rotherham United.

I had a wild and foolish thought on Saturday morning.

It’s beyond typical that I should have to write this column on the back of the 1-0 defeat at already-relegated Rotherham United after missing out on writing in the aftermath of that fantastic win over Newcastle United a week ago.

Two weeks ago, I started to look back at my five wishes set out in a column at the start of the season.

An experimental Ipswich Town side lost 1-0 at rock-bottom Rotherham United this afternoon.

Ipswich Town take on Rotherham United, in a Championship clash, at The New York Stadium this afternoon (3pm ko).
