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.”

The Price of (Partial) Success by samblueips
A stronger squad, with several consistent performers, has been a crucial factor in Ipswich’s success this season. If we remain a Championship club next season, however, we are likely to see exits. The idea that Mick McCarthy’s holistic strategy, planning for the long-term future of the club, may fall apart because of the magnified finances and stature of Premiership is an unfortunate but very real possibility.

By this point, most fans have usually lost interest, with the Blues sitting in lower mid-table the campaign begins to peter out.
Free Willie(ams) by samblueips
For much of this season, Ipswich were dire to watch. On numerous occasions, ninety minutes felt much longer. It was the only time in my fourteen years of being a season ticket holder that I had felt that way.
