Barnett: Joining Town a Nice Surprise
Monday, 19th Nov 2012 17:48
New loan signing Tyrone Barnett says joining Town came as a “nice surprise” after what had been a difficult week. The Peterborough striker had been fined and put on the transfer list after breaching club discipline.
The 27-year-old, who is with the Blues until January 19th, told the club site: “I got a phone call this morning saying Ipswich wanted me and it was a nice surprise.
“It’s been a difficult week, with what’s gone on so I’m looking at this as a new start and the chance to get back to playing football and enjoying my football as well.
“I’ve not done that as much as I would have liked this season. Ipswich have given me a chance to come here and play some games and hopefully score some goals and that’s what I’m looking to do.
“It’s a fantastic football club. I have some good memories of the place after scoring here last season in one of my first games. Now I want to score goals for the club and I can’t wait to get going.”
Last week, the striker, club captain Gaby Zakuani, Emile Sinclair and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing were all transfer-listed and fined after an early hours incident outside a nightclub in Peterborough city centre. Zakuani and Sinclair have subsequently been taken off the list and have had their fines quashed.

14 Years in the Second Tier But Be Careful What You Wish For by ORomeoZondervan
It is true, Ipswich have spent 14 consecutive years in the second tier of English football. Some would be quite proud of this achievement but others view this as abject failure, point to others' successes and believe a change at top is the answer.
However, I think some perspective is required.
