Final Cap for Edwards?
Wednesday, 16th Nov 2011 11:46
Town right-back Carlos Edwards won his 82nd and perhaps final Trinidad and Tobago cap as his national side beat Guyana 2-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Port of Spain overnight. The victory was in vain with the Soca Warriors having been eliminated from the qualification process after losing 2-1 to the Guyanese in Georgetown on Friday.
According to speculation in the Caribbean, 33-year-old Edwards is likely to be one of a number of players announcing their international retirement in the wake of their early World Cup exit.
Blues striker Jason Scotland recently announced that he would no longer play for his country, while former Town loanee Stern John could also end his international career.
Edwards, who played in all three of Trinidad and Tobago’s games at the World Cup in Germany in 2006, scored four international goals.

The Price of (Partial) Success by samblueips
A stronger squad, with several consistent performers, has been a crucial factor in Ipswich’s success this season. If we remain a Championship club next season, however, we are likely to see exits. The idea that Mick McCarthy’s holistic strategy, planning for the long-term future of the club, may fall apart because of the magnified finances and stature of Premiership is an unfortunate but very real possibility.

By this point, most fans have usually lost interest, with the Blues sitting in lower mid-table the campaign begins to peter out.
Free Willie(ams) by samblueips
For much of this season, Ipswich were dire to watch. On numerous occasions, ninety minutes felt much longer. It was the only time in my fourteen years of being a season ticket holder that I had felt that way.
