Well said Swarby 7. Some of the footy experts on here and in SBR LT should watch, and by that I mean only watch, Skuse and recently Tabb. Breaking up opp’ play time after time, creating space, covering, intercepting loose balls, last ditch clearances….and they never stop running. Tough, experienced and loyal players both these - we need them.
I'm not surprised he is happy to stay at Ipswich having seen what sort of contract he is on, yes he has worked his bollx off but really he should be hitting the net occasionally. I actually thought his worst attempt on goal was from the Bishop run & pass when he should have hit it first time. One goal is it since arriving at PR really is not good enough. At the end of the season whether we are in the top two, the playoffs or even lower does make a difference and is vital not only for promotion but also in the money received for the position a team finishes at. I doubt any other Championship club with aspirations of promotion would look at him but he does fit into the MM style.
This is testament to everyone involved. Fair play to Tabb for fighting for his place and being adament on proving MM and TC wrong instead of sulking (Taylor take note). Also, big thanks to MM and TC for playing a huge part in creating a squad of tight knit players that don't want to leave even when they are told they can. That doesn't happen very often.
Wow,what a great blog! I like how you reread to make sure it makes sense.I also liked 'playing a top side away from home' had to read that several times and pinch myself! However,you slightly disgraced yourself with the N word!
What I like is the managers honesty, no bull, and punches pulled. If you aren't doing it on the pitch, you can go....and all those on here calling Tabb one of Mick's favourites, well read it and weep, you've been proved wrong AGAIN!
I'm pleased he is here, don't get me wrong but he had little choice but to stay. If the story included that other Championship clubs were interested in signing him during the Summer then his commitment to stay would then carry some credit.
