Terry Butcher straight to the point 06:31 - Jun 7 with 6106 viewsBenters

Reckons he is concerned at the lack of transfer activity at PR, and town must finally sign a replacement for Murph this summer, and that should be the top priority this summer.

He also says Joe Garner isnt the man .

In other news Didz has hurt his knee again.

Terry Butcher hasn't read Milne's recent comments that the club are going to spark into life from the middle of June onwards? I'm with Terry on this. Hasn't stopped other clubs from starting their business early, we on the other hand sit back and watch.

I wouldn't listen to Butcher too much, he's far from credible in the managerial stakes.

The biggest issue was Milne's recent statement and in particular the use of the word "decent" when he describes our level of targeted signings.

It smacks of a club with either very little ambition, no real plan or a guy who literally has no idea on how to talk on a football level. All 3 are worrying.

Terry Butcher comes across as a massive tool in his book and everything I've read about him backs that up, so I take no notice of what he says.

That's your opinion and you are entitled to it, but you can't argue that the man has Ipswich in his heart and knows a bit about football - more than any of us on this forum. Just feel he is calling it as he sees it, nothing to do with his managerial qualities.

I'll start worrying if we've gone 1 or 2 of the early preseason games and there's still no movement on new and significant replacements. Probably with a no. 9 a priority, but let's face it we could do with strengthening in a number of areas.

Some might, but we can't go a full season without at least a couple of loan signings added to our squad and credit to MM he has picked up a couple of excellent loans in Fraser and Lawrence over the last few seasons. Huddersfield had 4 in their ranks, I think? Can't see why we can't act early to get them signed up, instead of waiting until a supposed magical date when the club rises from the ashes like a Phoenix!! 😂

Butcher may not have had the best managerial record - nor has Mick Mills. But he is right to be concerned about the last if transfer activity at our Club.

Other Clubs are actively signing players. Whilst Town can inly offer a current player a 2 yr deal. Two striker targets have either signed for other Clubs or are about too.

Milne drones on the usual PR spin and we currently have just 19 players in the squad.

Just WTF is going on at this Club.

We are IMO unlikely to be signing any permanent deals of note. Town have become
" damaged goods" in terms of ownership, playing style , footballers career development, promotion prospects and likely relegation credentials. What decent player in their right mind is going to want to join us now !

The Rotten apple in all of this is Marcus Evans. He has clearly list interest in his "toy" and is trying to re-coup his costs but can't get the price he wants. So the Club deteriorates further still under his ownership.

MM's football style may not be ideal ( it's awful), but to give him some credit he has been given virtually no funds when compared to the likes of Magilton, Keane, Jewell who were each given £M's

Fans have left in their thousands - to the point that thr Club simply dare not reveal the true extent. But I personally doubt we have sold even 8k for the coming season as fans wait to see what action Evans takes.......and so the downward spiral continues.

I honestly FEAR for our Club's very existence.

I'm a very concerned die hard Town fan.

Spot on.
After the debacle at Lincoln it was Butch that said it as it was live on BBC, truly embarrassing.
It's true his managerial record is questionable but at least he says what most of us Town fans are thinking.

I would be very wary of loan signings this early, parent clubs are still working out their first teams, likely departures and arrivals, the only loanees available now would be those with zero chance for the new season, don't we want PL fringe?

I echo these comments.

We are 5/2 to be relegated next season, and predicted to be either 3rd-5th favourites for relegation depending upon which bookies you look at.

Extremely concerned for our future in the Championship.

It's ok for people to say "oh, but hardly any clubs done any deals yet". Ok. But 4 of our potential targets (Watkins, Ward, Patterson and Maguire) all seem to be signed up by opposition clubs.

Yeah but the window isnt open yet!

You can see how this is going to go cant you,link after link town showing a 'interest' in players all summer.

You would have thought after last seasons nightmare,the club would be working flat out to put it right,and to win some of those fans back who have walked away?

Is that too much to ask?

By which you mean we've extended/renewed the contract of someone who was here last season. That can't strengthen us from when we ended.
