Town on the Telly looks back at all the Ipswich Town games played live on television up to the end of the 2021/22 season. Throughout the main part of the book, Karl shares his memories as a Town fan of over 40 years of watching the games whether at the ground, or on TV, that have been screened live by the BBC, ITV, Channel 5 or Sky (no iFollow, red button or any other type of streaming – legal or illegal).
Town legend Matt Holland provides the foreword, whilst there are some personal memories and stories from Karl including detailing our progress along the way in between each live game for many of the seasons.
There are match details for all games screened to date including the opposition, score, date of game, kick-off time, competition, venue, attendance, TV channel, name of Ipswich Manager, Referee’s name, line-ups for both Ipswich and the opposition, and times of goals and substitutions.
The latter part of the book looks back on the key dates, milestones and TV records.
If you are looking for that game that was screened live but cannot remember its details, or even just curious at which games have been shown live on television and memories of the game, then this book is for you.
All the eras from Sir Bobby Robson, John Lyall, George Burley, Joe Royle, Jim Magilton, Roy Keane, Ian McParland, Paul Jewell, Mick McCarthy, Paul Hurst, John McGreal and Kieran McKenna, are reviewed in detail.
