Alan Brazil is furious at Ipswich and reveals a falling out with his former club which prevented him from going to matches


talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil has branded his beloved Ipswich “disrespectful” after news reached him that they had removed their old photos.

Ipswich are flying high under the management of Kieran McKenna, who led them to promotion to League One last season in the Championship.

And the Tractorboys are still top as they sit second in the table, one point behind Leicester and 10 points ahead of third-placed Leeds as they look to win back-to-back promotions.

A victory against arch-rivals Norwich on Saturday, shown exclusively on talkSPORT, will give them even more reason to celebrate – but Brazil will not be present at Portman Road.

The talkSPORT presenter is an Ipswich legend after starting his career with the Suffolk team, playing for seven years and scoring 76 goals in the process.

He was part of the famous teams that won the FA Cup in 1978 and the UEFA Cup in 1981, but news reached him that photos of him and his teammates were taken around the stadium.

And the former striker hit out at his former club, branding them “out of order” while speaking live on talkSPORT on Friday afternoon.

“I thought we could qualify for the play-offs, having been promoted. Now it’s amazing, we’re doing brilliantly. Absolutely brilliant,” he said.

“I was going to go down, but someone said to me ‘why did they take all the traditional photos from 1978 and 1981?’

“I went ‘yes?’ They brought them all down. I remember Nottingham Forest did it to get rid of the (Brian) Clough era.

“I’m sorry but I think it’s disgusting, I do. I think it’s disgusting. I’m not saying we were the kings of Europe, we weren’t.

“We won the UEFA Cup. Under current rules we would have been in the Champions League three or four years in a row.

“I think it’s really disrespectful. Not just to me but to the people who are gone, Paul Mariner is gone, Kevin Beattie is gone.

“And that’s why I’m not going tomorrow (Saturday), that’s it. I’ve never said that before. It really upsets me.

“Not because of me but the other big players. I’m really upset, they are completely in a mess. I don’t know what they are doing, what they are thinking, why they did this. In a mess. “.

Darren Bent, who also started his career at Ipswich, was also stunned by the news.

He replied: “It’s a surprise to me because when I was a kid, when I was there, Al’s picture was there, with all these guys.

“The fact that they took down their photos is a little disrespectful.”

Ipswich vs Norwich will be shown exclusively on talkSPORT on Saturday lunchtime with McKenna looking to extend his fine form.

The derby is among the fiercest in the country as the Hatters hope to end the season celebrating another promotion.

This would see Ipswich return to the Premier League for the first time since 1995.
