For me, a few obvious things, others a bit more unique. In no particular order:

1. The World Cup, watching every key game (and most of the others) where poss with a beer in hand. Might be a bit challenging at times, for the USA game I am helping out at junior school camp at a sloping field miles from anywhere with no electricity but plans afoot to set up water slide to keep the kids amused whilst all the adults crowd round a portable TV run off a car battery by the camp fire.

2. Watching Moyet in Ipswich's Christchurch Park on a Sat eve in late July (as side-kick to Jools Holland). Can't wait for this one, a hopefully warm sunny evening, a beer or two (theme starting to develop here), and the SS Flag will be flying high to remind her of the Shrimpers amongst all those three-thumbed Tractor folk.

3. Thursday 17 June when the new fixtures are announced. Away day trips planned to Accrington, Stevenage, Bury, Rotherham (if don't go up), Shrewsbury (brand new), Chesterfield (brand new), Morecambe (if don't go up, brand new), Lincon, Burton, Macclesfield, Bradford and maybe York to bring me up to about 80 grounds.

4. A Summer trip to Southend to watch Ron digging the first sod at FF.

5. Watching Steve Harley & ****ney Rebel at Ipswich in June.

6. A racing night at Newmarket...........with Spandau Ballet too!

And a few other things too. I won't miss watching the frustrating defeats of a paper thin squad from the last ten months, well, maybe I will, but not yet.

Here's to a great Summer!
