Clegg Not Speculating on Klug Return
Thursday, 23rd Feb 2012 10:28
Town chief executive Simon Clegg has refused to either confirm or deny that the Blues have targeted former coach Bryan Klug for a return to the club's Academy, as first revealed by TWTD on Sunday. Klug was controversially axed by former boss Roy Keane in January 2010 and is currently the assistant director and head of player development with Tottenham’s youth set-up.
Town are yet to decide whether to opt for Academy Category One or Two status – only six clubs from outside the Premier League have indicated they are even considering the former – but either way there will be an increase in staffing numbers and probably a reshuffle across the board with Klug potentially back at the helm.
Clegg said: “It would be wrong for me to speculate on any member of staff, past or present. One thing is clear though – even if we aspire to Category Two – there will be a need for additional staff.”
Clubs have until March 31st to indicate their decision with the new EPPP four-tier Academy system – which Town voted against - set to be brought in next season.

Why All the Positivity? by Cambonbleu
Please don't take the headline of this piece to be negative, it certainly isn't. Whilst the odd doom and gloom-monger still exists within the ranks, it is evident to the vast majority of Town fans that the aura that surrounds the club at the moment is the most positive it's been since the heady days of Premiership football.
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?
