Over the course of the off-season, we’ll be bringing you some superb nostalgia videos looking at the A-Z of Ipswich Town.
'E' is for Europe...
The Blues won the UEFA Cup in 1981 under Sir Bobby Robson's management, beating Dutch side AZ Alkmaar 5-4 on aggregate in the two-legged final following a famous quarter-final win against French side Saint-Etienne and semi-final victory over German outfit FC Koln.
Remarkably, Town have never lost at home in Europe - a staggering 31-game record at Portman Road which includes wins against the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
The Blues qualified for European competitions 12 times between 1962/63 and 2002/03.
