Jewell: Even the Best Have Lean Spells in Front of Goal
Saturday, 22nd Sep 2012 10:38
Town’s failure to take their chances in their last two games has been a big frustration for Blues boss Paul Jewell, but he says even top players have lean spells in front of goal.
Recalling his playing days at Anfield, he said: “You see goalscorers sometimes and they can’t buy a goal. Top, top strikers.
“I remember being an apprentice at Liverpool and Kenny Dalglish couldn’t score. I remember us doing a training session where we were squaring balls for Kenny to hit into an open net, and I’m talking about from seven yards. Out about 50 he hit around two in.
“It happens to the best in the world and once he got one in a game he went on.
"He was a fantastic player but that’s the situation for strikers, they go on runs. Something needs to fall for one of our strikers or one of our players and I feel the team will move on from there.
“It’s not going to just happen for us, we’ve got to make it happen and the way you make it happen is not to be frightened of getting in there.
"Don’t be frightened of missing. It’s not nice to miss, but if you don’t put yourself in positions to miss chances, you definitely won’t score them.”

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?
Who's Next Between the Sticks (Or Be Careful What You Wish For)? by MedwayTractor
Having read so many recent comments about our perceived goalkeeping problem, I have put my own thoughts together on this subject.
Norwich Promotion: A Good Thing Or A Bad Thing? by calumberjack
Now I know what you’re thinking but hear me out. Celebrating the promotion of our greatest rivals seems spineless and cowardly, especially as they were the ones that dumped us out of the play-offs, but as I sat watching the second spectacular goal scored by that **** Nathan Redmond, I couldn’t help but ask myself whether this was really such a bad thing.
Gerken Vs Bialkowski by GeorgeITFC24
Looking back on the season our two goalkeepers shared the starting spot this campaign. Dean Gerken spent almost every match of the 2013/14 in the Town goal as the undisputed number one.
Goals From Midfield by rickw
Looking back on this season and most of us would admit Ipswich reached or exceeded our expectations, but after coming so close to success we are now all hungry for more - and for Ipswich to take that next step and challenge for automatic promotion.
