IPSWICH have offered Kieran McKenna a blockbuster new contract on 13:47 - May 22 by Kieran_Knows

I'll be amazed if he signs that until things become a bit clearer with Chelsea and United, but here's hoping I'm wrong!


Even for half the money, managing Chelsea right now is a complete hospital pass.

Both them and United need a complete rebuild and I can't see either of them being serious about KM, great though he is.

It's a tricky one, because Kieran seems to hold most of the cards here.

I'm sure Ashton would love to be in a position to say 'the offer's on the table until 5pm Friday', but the club is probably (within reason) going to have to dance to Kieran's tune here.


It's not so much that we can threaten to retract the offer. It's that if he's talking to Brighton (which by all accounts seems like he is), they'll have to get much closer to this offer to get him. Brightons last manager was on 1.5m a year, this is 5m.

Their owner does not like splashing the cash so it plays as well as it could.

De Zerbi was apparently on £1.5m a year at Brighton, so they'd have to really push the boat out if it were to come down to money on offer.


Be a big gamble for Brighton now, if it did go wrong.. hopefully puts them off

Oh believe me, his agent is doing OVERTIME. It's not gone down too well internally at Town. Nevertheless, the terms are there for Kieran to sign.


I'm not convinced that Kieran is particularly focussed on the money for its own sake, but that the value of this offer is in reinforcing to him (and perhaps more importantly to potential signings) just how serious the owners are about taking us on the next step up to the level of Brighton etc.

It's a gesture of seriousness from the club which will make the top level of English football sit up and take real notice if it's the sixth highest manager salary in the PL. And that is also good for the club all round.

I guess if they are willing to meet the buy-out clause then they are allowed to speak to him regardless of what Town say.

We've offered the deluxe option haven't we, the board that includes Stilton. I imagine even thrown in a bottle of Port.

I'm a cynic, and although I fully believe KM is behind our project and driven by his desire to achieve high standards, I wouldn't put it passed his agent to be milking (and probably in some cases even creating) all the noise around his future. It's the oldest agent trick in the book using the press to drive up someone's value and earn a nice juicy agent's arranging fee.

In some ways that's good.

This will be sorted one way or the other within the next few days and then everyone can focus on the new season.

Let's hope it's in Town's favour.

I was speaking yesterday and said if he hadn’t gone by the end of the week then he’ll stay.

Does need to be nipped in the bud asap, we can’t keep stressing every day all day and this place needs to go back to normality and everyone arguing

I don’t see McKenna being a bloke liking that sort of stuff though, or at least encouraging it, but suppose it’s his agent so he must agree to it somewhat?

Can’t imagine Ashton is best pleased, about that nor this new contract ‘leak’.

I suspect he's not driven by the money primarily. His agent most certainly will be. I've never heard of one yet who doesn't put money and their own cut above everything else, including their client's wellbeing. i hate the b*ggers with a passion, as they hold everyone to hostage and have way too much power. But unfortunately understand that they are needed.

He's not liking it at all. Unfortunately, intermediaries show their true colours when they see $$$ on the horizon.

As someone alluded to, there’s probably a deadline on signing this deal and not an open ended timeframe.

Ashton and the club will want it sorted ASAP, as would McKenna I suspect. All this talk in the press could’ve just hyped everything up and there was never any chance of McKenna going at all.

Who knows how legit this is but if true absolutely the right move by Ashton, give Kmac a top 6 salary that’ll take 1 variable out of the equation hopefully.

Keeping hold of Kmac is more important than any player signing by a mile.


It’s a Sun article so about as reliable as a Donald Trump testimony.

However, assuming ITFC are offering KM top money to stay, it’s over to him. All that matters to me is that whoever is manager of us is 100% committed to it. If KM has eyes elsewhere for next season, shake hands, say goodbye ASAP and move on. If we faff about with this for too long, any chance we have next season could be wrecked before it starts.

Altho, at the end of the day, they are McKenna's agents, not his controllers. They can't operate completely independently or directly against his wishes.

Now you’re talking !!! Hopefully this was all McKenna wanted .


I doubt very much he's driven by the money alone. It will take assurances about the continued development and investment in the total infrastructure of the club - along the lines that Brighton have done in the last few years. And he'd be right to do that!

If he get's that assurance I think he'll stay.
