Six decades of Cardiff City v Ipswich Town matches.

Another six questions about an upcoming opponent – the answers will be posted on here some time tomorrow.

60s. Who was the Yorkshireman with a real liking for playing in South Wales (he scored eighty four goals in one hundred and fifty five appearances during his time in this country) who was part of the first City side to play Ipswich during this decade?

70s. Growing into an Ipswich centre forward.

80s. He escaped to victory, scored during Ipswich’s run to FA Cup glory in the seventies and played a small part in the Town’s European triumph in the next decade before leaving for a team of whites from another country in 1984 – who am I describing?

90s. A scorer on his Premier League debut and of a winning goal at Anfield for Ipswich, it started to go wrong for this midfielder when he was suspended by the FA for three months after traces of cocaine were found in his blood. Three years later, he narrowly avoided a jail term after he was found guilty of driving with three times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood and of failing to stop at the scene of an accident. He was released by Ipswich shortly afterwards and only played four more games in the Football League for some Essex boys before seeing out his time in football on an island in the Thames estuary, but who am I talking about?

00s. Who is this player who made a winning debut for Ipswich in a game against City during this decade?

10s. Name this member of an Ipswich side that was beaten at Cardiff City Stadium during this decade.
