Wordsworth Looking Forward to Big Town Crowds
Saturday, 2nd Feb 2013 06:00
Playing in front of bigger crowds at Ipswich than he was used to as a Colchester player held great appeal for Anthony Wordsworth when he was weighing up his move.
The Portman Road new boy, who can operate as a central midfield player as well as wide on the left, is eager to appear in front of the Town supporters on a regular basis.
Wordsworth, 24, said: “I can’t wait to play in front of a big crowd. I played a game here in the Carling Cup a few years ago and that’s probably the most people I’ve played in front of.
“I’m really looking forward to playing again at Portman Road and hopefully I’ll thrive on it. All footballers want to play in front of big crowds. That’s the aim and now, hopefully, I’ve got an opportunity to do that. I can’t wait to get going.”
While Wordsworth remains confident that his former club can beat the drop in League One, he is equally certain that he will not be returning there with his new employers next season.
He added: “Ipswich had a good period over Christmas and gathered a bit of momentum. A couple of results haven’t gone too well recently and the teams around us have been doing okay.
“We’ve got to pick up results and from what I’ve seen in training I think we’ll be fine.”

It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
When The Keane Machine Broke Down by Pessimistic
The American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce once said that in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale and the diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. I suppose in the sad case of Roy Keane we were left with a bit of an ass who turned out to be pig ignorant!
