Duo in Team of the Week Wednesday, 20th Mar 2013 12:22
Town duo Carlos Edwards and Jay Tabb have been named in this week’s Football League Championship Team of the Week.
Skipper Edwards netted the Blues’ late winner against Bolton at Portman Road on Saturday, a game which was loanee Tabb’s home debut.
Team of the Week: Karl Darlow (Nottingham Forest), Bobby Hassell (Barnsley), Shane Lowry (Millwall), Richard Keogh (Derby), Leon Barnett (Cardiff), Kane Ferdinand (Peterborough), David Lopez (Brighton), Carlos Edwards (Ipswich), Jay Tabb (Ipswich), Jose Ullou (Brighton), James Vaughan (Huddersfield).
I didn't make much of Tabb tbh, he dosen't seem to possess any upper body strength, constantly losing possession. The only part of our team I think played well was the defence, barring some of Stearmans attacking play. I think Carlos was good cover for the rb and his work rate was excellent, but was lacking going forward on the whole. I liked what I saw of McGoldrick although I wanted to see him in the middle instead of out wide all the time.
Neither of these should make team of the week. Carlos was a passenger for most of the game and without cover from the, once again, impressive Stearman would have cost us the game. Tabb was busy but ineffective, maybe a couple of weeks to bed in will help him.
Whoever chooses team of the. Week must have been looking at a different game top the one oi saw. Dithering in defence and ineffective going forward. The only plus point for Edwards was his goal , which he needed 2 attempts to convert. Tabb on the other hand had a so so game which hardly merits team of the week entry. Chambers and smith would have been my choice everytime
Completely pointless exercise. Few actually at the game would have made either player in the top half of the Ipswich Players performances. Most of the Bolton team played better than Carlos. Why we have to put up with these nonsensical judgements is beyond me. I wonder how close the Wolves Goalie got to being included in this bizarre selection.
I like Tabb Im sure he will prove to be a handy player for us, but never in a million years should he be in team of the week! The same could be said for Carlos! Smith, Chambers or Stearman deserve it far more
Makes me laugh. People want to moan what a waste of time this TotW then use it to slag off our players. I'm sure MM is more than capable of pointing out the errors of their ways. Overall you can't fault Carlos for effort over the 90 mins and Tab although tiny kept bouncing back and for his first game showed promise. Granted the back 5 a becoming quite awesome and hopefully we can expect more clean sheets. Easter will be the big test! And finally - Carlos wouldn't have got two bites at the cherry if JET had produced that one piece of magic.
A very poor selection from whichever half-wit picked this team. Edwards was poor until the goal and Tabb had little strength and gave away possession easily. In my opinion, Smith should walk into that team and McGoldrick should be in contention
I guess your comment is directed at me. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. I would just say that I was not slagging off our players but just offering an objective view that the TOTW selection is plain daft. No-one at PR on Saturday would have rated Carlos' performance as being one of the best in the Championship on that day. I happen to rate Carlos, but apart from his goal his general level of performance on Saturday was, in my view, nothing more than ordinary. If that gets him into the best eleven performers in the twelve Championship games, then the 'experts' selecting the TOTW need to look at other things than their own navels.
Always good to see our boys in the team of the week, But Both players were very shy at crossing saturday. But tabb for his ball winning, and I can only imagine Edwards goal got them in the team. By the way, Anyone else find it odd that tabb for his size always seems to get his head on the ball?
Jay Tabb was excellent, unfortunately most supporters don't watch the players when they don't have the ball. I tend to do this when watching new players when they first come into the team its all too easy to make judgements simply when they have the ball. His tracking back, closing down and off the ball runs were excellent, I can see him playing in the centre as well. A very versatile player - I think Mick McCarthy is a shrewd judge players and I think this could signal the end for Lee Martin.
