Town Hold Open Day as Bullard's Exit Set to Be Confirmed
Friday, 10th Aug 2012 08:43
Town fans get the chance to watch Paul Jewell and his staff put the squad through their paces at a free-to-enter open training day at Portman Road this morning (10am-3pm). One man who won’t be present is midfielder Jimmy Bullard, whose Blues exit is likely to be confirmed today.
In addition to the training session and the chance to get players’ autographs, there will be plenty of other activities and attractions at the open day.
Last year 2,000 people attended a similar event and as a result this year the club has significantly expanded the itinerary, which you can see in full here.
Mark Murphy’s Radio Suffolk show is coming live from Portman Road with chief executive Simon Clegg in the hotseat answering questions sent in by fans.
News of Jimmy Bullard’s Blues departure is likely to be formalised today with his representatives and the club close to concluding an agreement regarding the remaining year on his lucrative Town contract. The freed up funds will help manager Paul Jewell to add to his squad with three new players on his wish list.
Prior to the open day the club is holding the annual photocall with the squad.

A Plea For Patience by Edmunds5
One of the biggest things I have noticed in recent times and in particular throughout this season is the feeling of inevitability that a manager will lose his job following a run of poor results or just one or two heavy beatings.

What Have We Learnt? by Pabbingtons
I had originally planned to pen this blog last week before the Birmingham game. It was to be full of praise for Mick McCarthy and the team, but that, looking forward, my original slight concern with his appointment remained, how would Mick develop our football, would we just be hoof ball but with better players?
The Birth of the German Masterplan by Bluetaff
Proper preparation and planning prevents p*** poor performance, the seven Ps – a buzz phrase thrown about with abandon and used as a punchline in meeting rooms all over the English speaking world. I have used it myself many a time but what is pertinent and what is padding?
