Wickham First Into International Action
Tuesday, 8th Feb 2011 10:39
Striker Connor Wickham will be the first of the 10 Town players away on international duty to get into action when England’s U19s face Germany at Chesterfield’s new B2net Stadium this evening (MUTV 7.15pm). Loan defender Darren O’Dea will be amongst the subs when the Republic of Ireland take on Wales in their first Carling Nations Cup game at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin (Sky Sports One/HD1 7.30pm).
Wickham has previously won three U19 caps, scoring one goal, and made his U21 debut in November, also in a match against Germany.
O’Dea has three full caps for the Republic of Ireland, who will give former Blue Jon Walters his first full international start this evening. Walters, now with Stoke, won his first and so far only cap as a half-time sub in November’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Norway.
Town’s other eight call-ups will be hoping to add to their international caps tomorrow evening.

The dispiriting and uninspiring defeat to Norwich was undoubtedly a poor performance. The passion was lacking, the creativity, as many of us have highlighted already, was sparse and it was another instance in this fledging season where a defensive error has cost us.
Squad Evaluation by bring_back_Wickham
As so many people are divided over whether we are a play-off challenging club or a mid-table club, I have decided to evaluate our squad so that you guys can disagree with me. So here goes.
Tickets and Other Issues by TimS
I would love to think that I wrote about tickets on a Bank Holiday Monday and the article has so much impact that Town introduce a Group Ticket Bundle on Tuesday. However, I am not that sure whether God moves in such mysterious ways.
Post-Derby Blues by TimS
For the first time for a while, I had the chance to go to last Saturday’s derby. I had been at home for the week and it would have been natural to head to Portman Road for a fixture that has given so many memories down the years. I did not go. I could not quite bring myself to buy the ticket, and I felt awful. Things had changed.
Mick Not the Man for Town by BossMan
After the lacklustre performance against the Budgies there seems to be an increase in dissenting voices complaining about the style of football being produced by Town under Mick McCarthy.
