It took Roy Keane's Ipswich Town 14 Championship matches to register a win last season. This season's first three points took just 90 minutes after the Suffolk side put Middlesbrough's stature as favourites for promotion into focus with goals by Tommy Smith, Tamas Priskin and Jon Stead sealing a 3-1 away win.

In future, to paraphrase Andy Warhol's maxim, Andy Barron will be famous for four minutes. That was how long he spent on the pitch during the World Cup, though the fact that the New Zealand midfielder was the sole amateur in the 32 squads and also an investment consultant, ensured his cameo against Italy made news around the planet.
