Graham Jumped at Chance to Join Town
Thursday, 28th Nov 2013 16:46
New loan signing Jordan Graham says he jumped at the chance to join the Blues on loan. The right-sided winger is at Portman Road until January 4th.
“The gaffer [Paul Lambert] told me on Tuesday night that Ipswich wanted me and I jumped at it,” the 18-year-old told the club site.
“I’ve played for the U21s at Villa for a couple of years but the move here is great for me, this is the challenge I want and I can’t wait to get going and show what I can do.
“It’s going to be a great experience for me. I know Ipswich has got a great history and the fanbase is really big as well.
“The gaffer at Villa said it was the perfect place for me to come and play football. He said Ipswich is a good club, that they get good crowds and that the manager here is a top guy, so I’m delighted to have a chance to play here.”

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.
