WHEN Bradley Orr brought down Danny Haynes from behind in the 47th minute of last Saturday's game at Portman Road little did he realise that his misdemeanour would put him in the record books.

When referee Neil Miller flourished a red card it signalled the 100th player to be sent off against Ipswich Town.

The first was John McLean from Bristol Rovers reserves on February 12 1938 - with Bristol City defender Orr completing the Hundred Club.

What the list of sendings off show is a steady increase in the number of early baths.

Alarmingly, there has been as many players sent off against Ipswich in the last 15 months as there was in their first 39 years as a professional club.

The Second World War intervened, but it is still a worrying sign of the times.

Ten players have 'walked' against the Blues since the start of last season, while it took from February 1938 until May 14 1977 before Charlie George lifted the number of sending offs to double figures.

Some famous names are featured on the list including world cup winner Geoff Hurst, Martin Keown, Teddy Sheringham and George.

And players who also played for Town and have seen red against them include: Eddie Youds, Andy Legg, Andy Bernal, Jermaine Wright and Jon Macken.
