U21s in Action at Charlton
Monday, 14th Jan 2013 10:23
Recent signing Tyrone Mings is in what’s likely to be a strong Town U21 side in action against Charlton at their Sparrows Lane training ground this afternoon (KO 1pm). The Addicks have confirmed that the game will go ahead despite the overnight snow in some areas.
Also likely to be involved are Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who was left out of the 18 at Cardiff on Saturday, Elliott Hewitt, Josh Carson and Jack Ainsley.
Last week, a very young Blues second string side lost 2-1 at Felixstowe and Walton in the Suffolk Premier Cup, but manager Mick McCarthy was pleased with their performance: “I thought our lads played really well in a difficult game for them. They were all kids, all babies, 16, 17, 18 most of them.
“As they lined up, both Terry Connor and myself said that corner kicks and freekicks were going to be a problem as there was only Tyrone Mings that was anywhere near as big as their back four.
“And that’s how it turned out to be. But I thought our lads really stuck at it and I was pleased with them.”

Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.
The Long Ball Hump by Ipswichlove
Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
