The East Anglian derby returns this weekend, and to celebrate many players past and present have been taking the ice bucket challenge.
There was late drama for both of our teams in The Championship last night ahead of their meeting in the East Anglian derby at the weekend.
The widow of Sir Bobby Robson was back at Ipswich Town today as fans and players gathered to honour her late husband.
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed that he is willing to allow midfielder Anthony Wordsworth to leave the club.
The 25-year-old has struggled to hold down a first team place at Portman Road since joining from Colchester United last year.

“I have spoken to him and he’s available now to go out on loan or to join a club permanently.
He needs to be out there playing games.”
Meanwhile, McCarthy also admitted that former fans' favourite Darren Ambrose is training with Town, but doesn't expect things to progress any further.

"It’s not a trial or anything like that. It’s just like Jack Collison who is also with us. Darren asked if he can train with us.
We’re happy to let him do that but it’s no more than that."
Ipswich Town have been dealt a blow with the news that winger Cameron Stewart will miss the start of the new season.
The former Manchester United man is expected to be sidelined until September after fracturing his jaw in a recent friendly against Leyton Orient.
23-year-old Stewart joined Town on a free transfer this summer following his release from Hull City.
Ipswich Town have agreed a deal to sign Mauritian midfielder Kévin Bru.
Bru, who has been on trial with the club this summer, has put pen to paper on a one year contract with the option of a further 12 months.
The 25-year-old is Town's second signing of the day, following the capture of giant Hungarian striker Bálint Bajner.
Bru was released by Bulgarian side Levski Sofia.
Ipswich Town are today honouring the memory of their former manager Sir Bobby Robson.
It's five years to the day since he died from cancer, and the anniversary coincides with some remarkable news concerning what the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation has raised in the fight against the disease.
When the former Town and England manager set up the foundation, the target was £500,000. Instead, it has raised an astonishing £7.3 million
His widow Lady Elsie Robson said:
– Lady Elsie Robson
"We've achieved far more than we ever expected.
He (Mr Robson) would be astonished to know what we've achieved and what we've done with the money. It unites people who are interested in football and affected by cancer. It unites them somehow across our region and beyond."
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation was set up after he was inspired by his oncologist Professor Ruth Plummer, who told him funding for research was needed.
Today Lady Elsie is at Ipswich Town's Portman Road stadium for what's been designated as the Bobby Robson Open day.
She'll receive a cheque for the foundation from the Football Association.
It's being held in conjunction with the football club's open day.
The highlight will be dozens of Ipswich fans joining the players and management in creating the biggest ever team photograph.
The new league season begins in just over a week's time.
Ipswich Town have signed Hungarian striker Bálint Bajner on a one-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has been on trial with Town over the summer, and scored in a recent 2-1 friendly win against Southend United.
23-year-old Bajner has been capped by Hungary at under 19 level, and previously spent a season on loan at West Ham United back in 2008.
The striker is a free agent after leaving Premier League side Swansea City, and will aim to impress Town boss Mick McCarthy at the Amlin Stadium.
Lita made a big impact during his time on loan at Norwich back in 2008, scoring 7 goals in 16 appearances.
