Me and My Club
with Jimi Raine
Musician and Town fan Jimi Raine discusses his first Town game, favourite Town player and more.
How did you become a Town fan?
My dad was in the FA youth cup winning squad of 1975 (Mark Glanville).
First Town game. Year/team/score/ground?
Liverpool v Town, FA Cup 5th round replay 1992.
Town lost 3-2 at Anfield.
Favourite Town player of all time and why?
Matt Holland because he was a great captain and leader and seems like an all round cool guy!
Worst moment as a Town Fan?
Losing 9 nil at Man United. I was at primary school in Reading and was obviously the only Town fan surrounded by Man U and Liverpool shirts.
Fair to say I got slaughtered for it.
Favourite Town goal ever and why?
Gavin Johnson equalising at Anfield in my first game.
Just for the fact that my dad went crazy and ran down the aisle celebrating with all the fans by the goal , leaving me and my mate at the back! Didn't care tho. Brilliant.
Best Ipswich Town captain of all time and why?
In my time I think Matt Holland, as above. Dad tells me it is Mick Mills tho.
Favourite piece of Town memorabilia is?
My dads Union Jack ITFC flag that he took to UEFA Cup final.
Greatest Town game you have watched & why?
Play off final at Wembley. Don't think I need to explain why....
Who is your favourite Town manager and why?
I wasn't born when this guy was Manager! But it has to be Sir Bobby.
It was his England team in the 1990 World Cup that made me fall in love with football and my dad and grandad tell me what an unbelievable team and style of football he created at town.
Just gotta say Mick is doing an awesome job at the moment in my opinion.
Most memorable Town moment as a fan of Ipswich and why?
Doing this interview of course......!!
