Irish Pair to Sign?
Monday, 10th Aug 2009 22:02
Bohemians pair Gary Deegan and Brian Murphy will join the Blues at the end of the Irish season in November, according to reports in Ireland. The duo will be out of contract, although Bohs will be due compensation for Deegan as he’s under 24.
While the players are believed to be joining the Blues in November, the duo could not officially sign until the transfer window reopens in January.
Town are understood to have been in talks with the Dublin club over the last few weeks in an attempt to land the pair during this transfer window, but the League of Ireland leaders are determined to hold on to their two best players until the end of their season.
Meanwhile, Roy Keane is ready to add Brian Kidd to his coaching staff, according to a tabloid newspaper.
Kidd, who Keane was coached by at Manchester United, has decided not to continue in his role as Paul Hart’s assistant at Portsmouth this season.
However, on Thursday Keane denied that he would be making any further changes to his backroom team: “No, that’s it in terms of the staff. I’m very happy with the staff who were at the club.
“That was a big issue for me when I came down. You always want to bring in one or two of your own staff in terms of people you can trust, but I also wanted to be fair to the staff that were here and they’ve all proved to be very, very good. We need a good team behind the first team, and I think we have that.”

We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
