Cropper Undergoes Surgery
Friday, 16th Dec 2011 20:00
Keeper Cody Cropper has undergone surgery on the knee injury he suffered in training earlier this week. TWTD was first to reveal that the 18-year-old was set for a spell on the sidelines yesterday.
Cropper, who faces around two months out, tweeted: “Surgery is done. Knee feels pretty good at the moment and now it’s time to get on the road to recovery!”
The US U20 international has a professional contract until the end of the season when he completes the second year of his Academy scholarship.
Cropper had been expected to be amongst Town's subs for Saturday's game against Derby until suffering his injury.
His Academy colleague Conor O'Donnell, 17, could be named in the senior 16 for the first time unless Richard Wright is considered fit enough to take his place on the bench after his strained pec.

Why All the Positivity? by Cambonbleu
Please don't take the headline of this piece to be negative, it certainly isn't.

Looking Forward by SpiritOfJohn
Looking forward to the new season? Me too. A couple of weeks ago one hot-footed it down to Portman Road to pick up the Barcelona-esque Town away shirt with a spring in the step. One fully expected to be the sole patron but there was a throng of happy faces weaving in and out of the expansive range of new kit.

So, How Have They Done? by GeorgeITFC24
It's been roughly 12 months now since last year's summer signings have been at the club. There have been some great moments from our new players, and equally a few lows! But how well have they done in their debut seasons?
