Kisnorbo Staying for the Rest of the Season
Tuesday, 29th Jan 2013 14:12
Central defender Patrick Kisnorbo has extended his loan with the Blues from Leeds until the end of the season. The 31-year-old Australian international’s initial month at Portman Road came to an end today.
Manager Mick McCarthy said on Friday that the plan had always been to extend his spell as long as all parties were happy to do so and the Blues boss is delighted that that is the case: “Patrick wanted to stay with us, we wanted him to stay, so obviously we’re pleased it’s been agreed.”
Kisnorbo, whose only appearance so far came in the FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa, is out of contract at Elland Road at the end of the season.
Elsewhere, ex-Town reserves winger Devann Yao is on trial at Birmingham City. The American, who spent a short time with the Blues during the 2009/10 season, was most recently with Belgian side Royal Boussu Dour Borinage.
Meanwhile, former Blues striker Dean Bowditch, now with the MK Dons, is said to be a target of Norwich City. The former Town academy scholar, who was released in the summer of 2009, is out of contract in the summer.

Money Doesn't Guarantee Success? by wadey
Due to all the arguments about not spending money on players and other people saying 'spending doesn't guarantee success', I decided to do some research. I've looked at every club that has been promoted since we were relegated in 2002.
Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.

As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
