Considering the age of the material, the picture & sound quality is generally good. The chapter points are also handily placed at the start of each game. As for the games themselves, it's a nice collection which is a must have for all Town fans young & old, and highlights just how good Town were throughout most of the 70s. Some great games, great football & cracking goals from the likes of Trevor Whymark, Paul Mariner, little Eric Gates, the hammer left foot of Kevin Beattie etc. Great memories to be relived again and again!

jumpers for goal posts..sherbet fountains.ahhh the good old days.
always had a soft spot for ipswich..so thought i would take a trip down memory lane,and jog my memory of the best town side in my memory.
all the greats are here,beattie,hunter,mills..super stuff.
if you have a love of 70's football,this may be right up your street,even if you don't support ipswich..(which incidentally i support west brom,who get a right tonking,not once but twice on this dvd)you may still find yourself wallowing in nostalgia..this dvd is well recommended.

70 minutes of highlights from 12 games of bryan robson'boys between first division,fa cup and uefa cup.
match selected from 71-72 to 79-80 and then miss the UEFA CUP triumph in 1981.
however, you can admire, in a good quality video, the exploits of Brazil,Mariner,Talbot,Wark and others,
including the FA CUP FINAL against Arsenal in 1978.

IPSWICH TOWN IN THE 70S SEEM OUT OF TIME IF YOU WATCH THE GAMES FROM 1975,THE GROUND LOOKS FUTURISTIC, THE PITCH UNDER LIGHTS AGAINST BRUGES AND FEYENOORD, LOOK LIKE YOUR WATCHING IT NOW IN YOUR LIVING ROOM WHEN I WOULD WATCH EVERY BRITISH TEAM AND FEEL DEEP PAIN IF THEY LOST TO THE CONTINENTALS!(NOT NOW 1. (I DON,T WATCH) 2.(I COULDN,T CARE LESS)!ONTO 1976 AND OH TO BE IN THE CROWD IN THE SUN. (AGAIN LOOK AT ALL THE MUMS AND KIDS)AND THEY TALK OF FAMILY FRIENDLY CLUBS TODAY,(WE WERE ALL HOOLIGANS THEN OR THAT IS HOW PRE 1992 IS PRESENTED).IN THE 7-0 DESTRUCTION OF W.B.A. I CELEBRATED 4 INCREDIBLE GOALS LIKE I WAS AT THE GAME.(AND I DON,T SUPPORT THE TEAMS INVOLVED AND ITS PUSHING 40 YEARS AGO,HOW MAD IS THAT?) LETS TALK OF THE PLAYERS...TREVOR WHYMARK,PAUL MARINER,KEVIN BEATTIE,AND ERIC GATES WITH A HAT-TRICK VRS MAN CITY.THE FOOTBALL IS WONDERFUL! AND IF YOU ARE YOUNG, YOU COULD WATCH AND MAYBE WONDER WHY EVERYBODY CELEBRATES LIKE THEY ARE HAVING A FIT.JUST WATCH FRANK WORTHINGTON IN FRONT OF THE BOLTON FANS WHEN HE SCORES HIS SPECIAL ONE,LOOK AT THE FACES OF THE CROWD!...THEY HAVE ALL SCORED!,AND THEY LOST THE MATCH!.IPSWICH ALWAYS LOOKED LIKE A DUTCH OR GERMAN CLUB,WITH THE DIFFERENCE UNLIKE TODAY, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM THEY WERE ALL BRITS,PUT TOGETHER BY THE VERY YOUNG AND MUCH MISSED SIR BOBBY ROBSON.HOW COME ENGLISH FOOTBALL SOLD OUT? WE HAD OUR OWN GAME AND PLAYERS,WE WERE LET DOWN BY MORONIC FANS WHO JUST NEVER UNDERSTOOD THE LONG-TERM DAMAGE THEY INFLICTED EVERYWHERE THEY WENT, AND GAVE THE POWERS THAT BE THE CHANCE TO DO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE!FROM AMAZON UK
