|Healy Nets First Goal of Loan Spell|
Wednesday, 3rd Feb 2010 08:52
Midfielder Colin Healy struck the first goal of his loan spell at Falkirk on Tuesday evening as the Bairns won 1-0 at Aberdeen to haul themselves off the bottom of the SPL.
The former Irish international lashed in from 20 yards after half an hour to win the game for his side.
The ex-Cork City player is on loan with Falkirk until the end of the season.

Would like to see that headline this weekend!

Just shows how low the standard of the SPL is, even when compared to the Championship.

I saw the goal last night..... very good strike and a great goal!!
|italiano added 09:38 - Feb 3|
Hahaha, well I do have a final year exam this afternoon!
|italiano added 09:39 - Feb 3|
Out of interest dreblue, do you know what position he was playing in??? CM or the free-role like he did 'so successfully' away to Palace
|petermorris added 09:57 - Feb 3|
italiano - Go and get on with some revision. You could probably do with it.
|Tractorog added 10:02 - Feb 3|
Hopefully he will bring renewed confidence back with him when he returns.
Say no to the boo boys.
|nthstd added 10:32 - Feb 3|
Watch him get 12 ny the end of the season
|chrisswailes added 10:50 - Feb 3|
italiano - are you sure it's not gcse's your doing?
|Eireannach_gorm added 12:48 - Feb 3|
Nice one, Colin. Two fingers to the 'boo' boys. Regarding the standard, looks like Robbie Keane did'nt achieve it!
|blueoveru added 13:07 - Feb 3|
The SPL , a two team league with everyone else = to English Div 2
|Killieblue added 14:02 - Feb 3|
Eireannach_gorm -- but he was playing against the mighty Kilmarnock !!!!! first win for a while.
|Redmond added 14:42 - Feb 3|
Good to see one of are players doing well, but tbh do we need him? No i dont think so with norris,garven,leadbitter and colback he wont even get a look in hopefully some £££ in the summer, good luck to him tho and hopefully prove me wrong
|italiano added 14:46 - Feb 3|
shut up chrisswailes, are you seriously gonna have a go at me for slagging off healy? one of the worst players ever to wear an ipswich shirt? anyway, i'm on my way for a first in economics at university actually, how's your tescos checkout job going?

Personal insults on a news section. Bravo children.

for everyone who has ripped colin healy and keane for signing him just watch skysports news, his goal was quality and won the game for them, he did something that the very over rated robbie keane couldn't quite manage, put the ball in the back of the net, and from 20 yards, was a cracker.
if played in the right position in the centre of midfield healy could still do a job for us, heard he scored a similar goal in the reserves when he was still with us. Earlier on in the season he was played as a holding midfielder and it didn't quite work out, but when he played in the 5 man midfield against palace on boxing day in a more advanced role he actually played well and was unfortunate to be sacrificed due to stead's red card. I feel he has been treated rather harshly by some fans and hope he comes back from his loan a better player and proves his doubters wrong

Killieblue - Kilmarnock must have as many wins as Ipswich now :)
|chrisswailes added 18:10 - Feb 3|
italino - i'm seriously not going to qualify your tesco comment with a response. but to say colin healy was one of the worst players to ever wear a town shirt is frankly laughably. he played for us about five times. i'm assuming you weren't aware of him before he signed for us? that in itself of course doesn't justify him not quite making the grade here, but he is a very good player. for the price we paid it was well worth a gamble, and just like priskin, trotter and richards in recent years was not deserving of moronic, naive idiots like yourself laying into them all the time.

Good to see him making some progress!
He'd be a decent back-up for us next season under Garvan, Leadbitter and Norris (assuming Colback won't come back, but hoping he will).
Up the Town!

chrisswailes - I was aware of Healy a long time before he arrived here, which is why I always thought it was an odd signing. He's a skilful player, but the injuries have taken their toll over the years (less than 160 games in 12 years tells it's own story) , and he just doesn't cut it at this level. He didn't cut it at Barnsley three seasons ago, where he didn't impress enough to get a start, and he hasn't improved since. Even Bradford in League One sent him back from loan early when he was at Oakwell.
This isn't a young lad making his first steps in the League yet to reach his peak, this is a guy whose best years were spent on the treatment table because of poor challenges that had broken bones in his legs. At the bottom end of the SPL and League Two, like he proved against Shrewsbury, he'll do well because the standard is lower, but at Championship level? He's off the pace. All the skill in the world won't help if you can't get near the ball.

Cracking goal Colin! Hope your loan spell goes from strength to strength and we see you back in blue and white next season.
|italiano added 08:55 - Feb 4|
I apologise for any offence caused chrisswailes, I just didn't like being slagged off for voicing my opinion about a player who i feel is not good enough for us.
Having said that, his goal for Falkirk was fantastic. Let's hope he's not yet another player who seems to be able to play well for any team other than Ipswich, ala Ambrose, Fuller, Priskin etc...
|chrisswailes added 13:16 - Feb 4|
That's all fine, apologies as well. I was perhaps a tad rash. Fans should stick together and all that. Roll on saturday!
