IPSWICH Town fans are still purring after their team's 6-0 demolition of Bristol City on Saturday. It was certainly one of the most exciting Blues games in recent years - but what was THE most memorable game of all?

We're asking Town supporters to name the best game in the club's history. There are certainly plenty to choose from in the rich and varied history of Ipswich Town Football Club!

Your favourite game might be one of the famous occasions which Town fans have enjoyed down the years. The FA Cup Final in 1978, for example, or the unforgettable UEFA Cup Final triumph three years later. Older fans might plump for a match from Alf Ramsey's incredible 1962 Division One Championship-winning season.

Or, coming more up to date, you might have fondest memories of the Play-off final at Wembley in 2000, when George Burley's team ended years of heartache. Or your favourite game might be the play-off semi-final from that same year, when Town beat Bolton in a sensational game, with a certain Jim Magilton scoring a hat-trick!

Perhaps your best memories are of a game from the following season, when unfancied Town took the Premiership by storm, qualifying for Europe. Or maybe your favourite Blues game of all time is from one of the club's many European campaign, including places such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and, of course, the San Siro.

Or, just possibly, some people might choose a game against our yellow and green rivals from up the road; the Bryan Gunn gaffe, perhaps, or Megson's own goal, the Mathie hat-trick, or Danny Haynes's recent heroics?
