Town Confirm Wordsworth Signing
Wednesday, 30th Jan 2013 16:21
Town have confirmed the signing of Colchester United midfielder Anthony Wordsworth on a contract until the summer of 2015 with the option for a further year. TWTD revealed that the Blues were set to sign the 24-year-old more than a fortnight ago, manager Mick McCarthy having been spotted watching him in action back in November.
The fee is officially undisclosed but is understood to be in the region of an initial £100,000, rising to £200,000 with clauses, with Wordsworth’s Colchester contract up in the summer.
Born in Campden, Wordsworth came through the Colchester youth system and made his senior debut in August 2007.
Since then the central midfielder, who can also play wide, has made 155 starts and 44 substitute appearances, scoring 35 goals.
Last season he scored 13 times but this campaign, as the U’s have struggled near the foot of League One, the set-piece expert has managed only three.
Wordsworth is understood to have spent a few days training with the Blues squad a fortnight ago while the clubs negotiated the deal.

I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
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.

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.
