Like I guess most of you out there, these enforced international breaks from the domestic season does my head in.

Just when our appetite for the new season is reaching fever pitch, enthusiasm is curtailed again, as we suffer more dead rubbers of international proportions.

It is difficult enough when these games actually mean something but when they are nothing more than an opportunity for managers to shuffle their playing cards, it seems to me to be an extravagant waste of time.

I’ll be honest with you when I say I hate them because these international breaks are such a disruptive force.

I can empathize though with those of you who argue that club managers get some breathing space and it gives players more recovery time from injuries – assuming of course that the don’t incur more in the process that is, which is always the risk.

If there is one good thing to come out of these periods of football nothingness then it is that it gives me the opportunity to invite you to come on board and join me!

The last time I made a request of this nature, two Town supporters actually did and the more the merrier as far as I am concerned!

I understand that not everyone is into writing but we do all have views about where the future lies for Ipswich Town Football Club?

Can we make it to the Promised Land this season via automatic promotion or the play-off’s – or will we be consigned to another season in football purgatory ?

Is manager Mick McCarthy the right man for the job and if so what areas of the field does he have to address in his quest to get up promoted?

There are so many fascinating topics worthy of discussion and although we may not always publicly express them, we all have our own individual points of view.

That is why I would dearly love you to join our vital Ipswich writers team! You can send a blog or write an article – or even pen a poem. Whatever appeals to you send your contributions and we will publish them – it really is as simple as that!

Tomorrow Town striker Daryl Murphy should get some more valuable game time with the Republic of Ireland, as they face Bosnia H. in a game of vital importance to both nations and it seems likely that because of injuries and suspensions he might get the chance to start.

I genuinely hope he does because if he gets the green light, then he may end his goal drought with the Irish – as he did so emphatically last weekend with his first ever hat-trick for the club!

But what do you think? You have heard enough of what I think as editor of Vital Ipswich so now it is about time to read your points of view on all things blue – so get writing!

Frank Weston – Editor of Vital Ipswich
