Match Thirty-Seven – Middlesbrough 4 – Ipswich 1

I travelled very apprehensively to this early match and my fears were realised by the heavy defeat.

The crowd wasn’t big, as this picture shows.

I do think if they are going to have an early kick-off for the benefit of Sky, then clubs should at least make sure the crowd is bigger.

The match turned in an unusual way.

After four minutes Ayala scored for Middlesbrough and in the process both Ayala and the Ipswich goalkeeper; Dean Gerken were injured.

The replacement of Gerken made no difference to Ipswich, but after twenty-four minutes Ayala was replaced by Jonathan Woodgate. In his time, Woodgate has been talked about as one of the best centre-backs in England, but he’s hardly fulfilled his promise, due to a long list of injuries.

After he came on, Ipswich got hardly a sniff at goal.

I do hope if we are going to play in Middlesbrough in the future, that the match is scheduled for August or September.

I don’t think there can be a colder place in England!
