Peters on Trial at Whitecaps
Tuesday, 22nd Jan 2013 08:58
Former Blue Jaime Peters has joined MLS side the Vancouver Whitecaps on trial back in his native Canada. The 25-year-old was released by Town last summer and since then has spent time on trial at Leyton Orient and Yeovil, where he was on loan earlier in his career.
His fellow Canadian and ex-Town team-mate Jason De Vos, these days a TV pundit and columnist, says the winger or full-back didn’t make the most of his ability during his seven years at Portman Road, tweeting: “Jaime Peters - loads of talent and athleticism.
"Struggled for consistency at Ipswich, fell in with the wrong crowd, a poor influence on him.
“Peters is young enough to turn his career around if - and that's a big if - his attitude is 100% professional.”

Interesting comments , wonder who that refers to ?

Probably any of the disco boys still around our team at the time. Always a bad influence

Wow we had a shape making circle - Shame - he came with such a fanfare - like so many the trappings and distractions .... We saw one this past weekend - Jacob Mellis - a very good footballer , who if he kept out of trouble would be premiership all the way - Bostock ,

The wrong crowd ? Keane,Jewell and Clegg maybe
|ChrisMakin2012 added 11:45 - Jan 22|
The wrong crowd being Clegg, Chopra and JET

difficult with footballers to know which are part of the right crowd

I don't think De Vos was a fantastic footballer but he was a very good footballer and he probably kept some of the younger players on the straight and narrow.

Slightly worrying comments if true. Hints at perhaps a wider malaise affecting the club over the last few years. Really hope (and cautiously believe) that MM will stamp this sort of carp out of the club and get rid of any bad influences. I remember comments from Shane Supple and Richie Wellens over the last few years which worry me too.

Why is anyone surprised by JDV's comments? C
ommon knowledge there has been a drinking culture at Portman Road mainly down to a lack of discipline from Paul Jewell, actively encouraged by Mark Kennedy and fuelled by Jimmy Bullard.

Not heard the 'wrong crowd' refernce before. makes more sence of why he went from fairly regular 1st teamer to none existence in a small timespan. Unless Keane was the 'Wrong Crowd' .
Anyway, judging on what I saw, I thought he had great skill energy and committment and I was disappointed when he left.
I wish him the best of luck

HE WAS UNDERPERFORMING BEFORE PJ GOT TO THE CLUB

Oh yes, I remember de vos- long time since I've heard his name though.
|brian_a_mul added 16:12 - Jan 22|
I think De Vos is hinting at a wider social circle outside of the club.
Players have so much time off between training and match days.
A young player away from family & friends with some $$ and lots of free time need to be guided carefully.
Anyway best of luck to Jamie in Canada, lets hope he can still make a decent career for himself.

I always liked Peters and think it was a shame that he didn't get a decent run in the team - I would have liked to have seen a few more games with him on the right and Shane O'Conner was on the left during Keane's time

I wish the boy the very very best. OK he may not quite of made it here but he always gave 100% which is all you can ask for.

I wish him every good fortune. I agree that the commments about the wrong crowd are worrying.

Good luck Jaime, showed plenty of promise and effort but never had a prolonged run in the side to show what he could really do.
I think his biggest problem was that he didn't have one set position - he was used on the wings, attacking and defensive midfield, both full back positions, he seemed to be one of those players whose versatility worked against him - always on the bench or around the squad in an emergency to fill in but never given a position to make his own.
