Town Unchanged at Leeds
Saturday, 15th Dec 2012 14:03
As expected, boss Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged side for today's game at Leeds. Nigel Reo-Coker, back after a hamstring injury, is on the bench.
Also amongst the subs is Bilel Mohsni, the on-loan Southend man benefiting from Tyrone Barnett's injury. The French-Tunisian has been the unlucky sixth domestic loanee omitted from recent squads with only five permitted in the matchday 18.
New signing Tyrone Mings was in the 21-man travelling party but is not in the final squad. Josh Carson and Ronan Murray also made the trip but are not involved, perhaps suggesting that the Irish U21 international is now ahead of Jason Scotland in the pecking order.
The Leeds line-up includes former Town skipper David Norris. Full match preview here.
Leeds: Kenny, Peltier, Byram, Lees, Tate, Green, Tonge, Norris, Thomas, Becchio, Diouf. Subs: Ashdown, Pearce, Varney, White, Brown, Hall, McCormack.
Town: Henderson, Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, N'Daw, Drury, Martin, Murphy, Campbell. Subs: Loach, Hewitt, Higginbotham, Reo-Coker, Mohsni, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra.

Where Are We Now? by Steve_M
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.
The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
