McCarthy: It's Great to Have Options
by harlingblue at 00:46:03

Sign the Hungarian trialist, he looks good and makes good runs off the ball, Mings and Hewitt are great young attacking fullbacks, Chambers and Parr fine defending fullbacks. The keeping situation seems sorted with the addition of 'Bart'. The addition of two exciting young wingers, plus a revitalised Anderson should add ammo to the front line . Hyam/Skuse to either play to protect the defence or do the short ball to more attacking players. Up front Murphey/trialist a cert with Frank or Marriott. Then add McGoldrick, he could be a midfield playmaker/scorer or attacker with Murphey. A far better squad that we have had for many a year?

FA Celebrate Sir Bobby Robson Day at Portman Road
by harlingblue at 23:38:48

Sir Bobby Robson you gave Ipswich Town supporters our greatest period of time. Winning the FA Cup, The UEFA Cup. You fought your way into our hearts after a difficult start, but your eye for a player was acute, and your teams played with the passion and style that was befitting of such a great man and manager.

God bless you Sir Bobby and thank you. I'd probably not have got into football if it weren't for you. R.I.P. If there's such a thing as Heaven, I'm sure you have Heaven Town in fine n dandy order and they're running away with the Galaxy League :)

We need a jonny Williams and cover for McGoldrick.Jonny show this club what we were missing and when Eddie got injured our season was over because we had noboby that could step up to his mark.Both of these issues have not been addressed so far and its vital that it is or its mid table at best...FACT.

Great man..you would've run through a brick wall to play for him.

Personally I still think we should have his image printed out in the seats in the Sir Bobby stand (ala Tom Finney at Preston).

Notes for the New Season – Part Four: Forest, Derby and Watford
by pazelle at 20:46:56

Interesting re: Mancienne - Mick had him at Wolves...

Agree that there's a lot of strong sides in the Championship on paper - it's always chaos though! We've got a steady ship.

Came from Essex with my mum to PR to commemorate the great Mr Robson 5 years ago - to see all the lovely tributes, flowers, scarves etc... a great great manager, never far from my thoughts!

Only two more players needed I feel,one a Jonny Williams type player,the other a striker.Mick may find one from the two trialists;but still feel he should and may spend a transfer fee on the other,as this would be preferable to a loan.
Still dont feel that manager can be expected to put together a promotion winning team without spending a penny,and its unfair of Marcus Evans to expect him to do this.

Phil, the club really expects people to be and remain seated for more than 12 hours prior to the photo shot? ;-)

We didn't fail by 25.3%, that doesn't make any sense. It would be like saying you've failed your driving test because you got a couple of minors.

I'm confident that this will be addressed and we'll be ready for category one next year.

For me, Taylor on the ball is exciting but nothing comes of it. Unfortunately, flair is flare - dazzling burst, then a fizzle.

Lets step back and look it realistically.

Creswell gone, parr in. Good replacement job done.

SEB gone, marriot back and looking like last seasons loan stint has done him the power of good, none the less the squad has the same number if strikers available for the match day squad, less injurues which you xant account for.

MCG back in training. No not match sharp but on his way back. I dont see the need to assume he'll never be the same again. Let the boy play 1st.

Richardson gone, Hewitt and Veseli back both looking improved, Chambers 1st choice at RB. Richardson average at best whilst with us.

Green gone, again only average when here and clearly a position MM is looking to adress. Maybe Bru is already the answer, the emergence of Veseli as an additional midfield option offers further cover. Expect a lon addtion here

Murph clearly showed last season he can step up and has improved drastically under MM. Why can't that continue this season? Even Nouble is scoring in pre season. Again MM is clearly looking to adress the situation hence the numerous trialists in that position. If a suitable one does not come along anticipate loan addition.

loan additions unlikely to arrive until 25 man squads finalised or prem buisness nears completion, as with most other clubs.

Green and Richardson arrived in the 2nd half of last, as all clubs did last year Town strengthend in Jan. They will again, as will other clubs.

so in fact squad size is similar to this time last year with more still to come. In terms of ahead of or behind the curve, probably about on the money. More players will come, this is the way of modern football.

For the record I think a much tougher league this year and my gut says we just miss out 7th to 10th. But I think the squad looks better, has imprived and we look v tough to beat. Henshall, Marriot and the return of MCG offer a splash of potential magic and Stewart (maybe even Taylor, although I admit doubtful) looks like he can produce at this level. He will have off days but hes the sort who will do nothing for 88 mins and win it in the 89th.

All in all I am optomistic if not expectant. Consider us dark horses.

COYB!

I really enjoy these blogs. Always an excellent, informative read.

What strikes home however is MEs refusal to spend on a penny on transfer fees and still be able to compete towards the top end of the table at this level. We are no stronger than last season. Looks like mi table.
