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.”

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
