With Ipswich Town’s Championship season just over a week away from kicking-off, excitement is building at Portman Road – the buzz at Thursday’s open day spreading a new wave of optimism amongst supporters.

Six new signings have been brought in to date, with Joe Garner, Bersant Celina, Emyr Huws and Tom Adeyemi expected to add a new attacking energy to proceedings and Dominic Iorfa and Jordan Spence bolstering Town’s defensive options, as well as being expected to create chances from out wide.

With the hunt for a striker still in full flow, Chief Football Writer Stuart Watson joined sports writer Chris Brammer for a Facebook Live chat earlier this lunchtime.
