Once their relegation has been confirmed a party should be held in a city pub either before or after our following home game

Maybe a new song so we can remember this epic season for years to come?

To the tune of Status Quo - 'Down down'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKe2OfXLxuc

Town down, City are crowned

Town down, Lambert will frown

Town down, Run by a clown

Town down, dogsh1t and brown

 

I want all of the tractors to see

To see we're laughing, and we're laughing in glee

10 years, City unbeaten to you

Again again again again

Again again again and you're going down

 
Town down, City are crowned

Town down, Lambert will frown

Town down, Run by a clown

Town down, dogsh1t and brown

Lots of insane improvised dancing would need to take place as it is sung.

In homage to their plan to display a banner on the A12 if we lost to Boro at Wembley, how about a nice message prominently displayed on the A14 at Beacon Hill when they trudge back from Preston on Good Friday?

 

After we've celebrated going up earlier in the evening of course!

I was going to suggest flying a banner over Poorman Road but it would be a wasted gesture with so few there to see it

That is a brilliant idea. Crowd funded? 

A minutes silence is cheaper

How about a minutes applause on the 62nd, 78th and 83rd minutes of the last game of the season to acknowledge the final passing of a glorious history?

You and me both, very satisfying and I hope it's like that at 46 games played.

So what game do you think they will get relegated can’t me long now before is mathematically impossible 

Good Friday or Easter Monday

I strongly suspect, Look Norwich and Talk Norfolk will do enough to wind that shower up. 

However, the pride of Anglia banner making an appearance at Carrow Road, after their long awaited demise would do just as well!

Unfortunately in their constant quest for another trophy they have just missed out on the lowest Championship points total ever - Rotherham got 23 in 2016/17. However they can still grab the runner's up medal, Blackpool in 2013/14 gained the second lowest total at 26 points.

Can't celebrate that until we are up.

But maybe we can get some of those blue EU flags u see during Brexit protests but remove all but 3 stars.

Not sure what an Ipswich equivalent to brexit shoukd be called, Ipexit? Scexit? Blexit?

It's  been on the cards since Sheepshanks overstretched on their poncing off others around 2001.

They are down this season because of that, not some guff about their previous manager wrecking everything - Lambert's tenure has shown that.

Putting the club in such dire straights was only ever going to lead to an asset stripper like Evans taking over despite the nonsense about him 'hinvesting' he has taken a £30m debt to nearly £100m debt with the raining ground being shifted via the back door to a Guernsey based off shore company. There are no players worth selling, he's already done that and the stadium has been badly (non existent) maintained for the past decade.

That's what led to their current position.

Let them slide into L1 with no great noise from us. Individual City fans have had their fun since September, and will continue to do so if they are in any close contact with any binners. But for us collectively lets focus on the title and making some noise about that.

They're an absolute irrelevance now. It could be years before we're in the same division again. Let's just enjoy the ride and take pleasure from the knowledge that they'll have no option but to watch from behind the sofa as the world's media start to focus on our fantastic talent.

The rivalry is so much better when we're in the same division and miles better than them... this has truly been a season for the ages. Still not quite at the same level as the 9-2 season and Holty's laughing hat-trick, but I've had about enough of kicking them while they're down for now. I'll guess I'll keep half an eye on their attempts to stay out of League Two next season, though.

Good point FTW, if we are in the premier League then our top loan out players will go to the championship surely, so no  point for me to look at league one other than see how the old enemy are doing.

A coffin, painted blue and white, with RIP on the lid, have it  Fed Ex'd to Portman Rd, in time for their demise and plenty of wreaths with our sincerest condolences..... as an aside, this month marks the 10th anniversary, since they won a Derby, it would be almost disrespectful not to celebrate.

Specifically, Good friday, when we have Sheff Weds at home is the exact 10 year anniversary of their last derby win against us.
