Doncaster After Quinn
Doncaster After Quinn
Sunday, 15th Aug 2010 22:53

Doncaster Rovers are one of three clubs interested in signing Town midfielder Alan Quinn on loan. The Republic of Ireland international is currently sidelined with a minor groin injury and appears to be out of manager Roy Keane’s long-term plans.

Rovers boss Sean O’Driscoll watched the recent Town friendly against a Spurs XI, although Quinn, who has a year left on his Blues contract, missed that match having sustained his injury in the earlier game at Leiston.

Quinn, 31, was close to joining Barnsley this time last year.

Wage bill cut a bit more, only a good thing. A hard worker but not much else..

just enough to settle his contact and i will be happy, nothing against quinn but don't think he will get a game this season as quite a few players are in front of him.

A worthy trier, but accident prone and never going to make us better. Any relief on his contract appreciated; good luck to him.

ChambersM : True but we can get a better younger player same position but less wage bill or maybe a great player with wage big a bit higher but worth it

Hard worker, never quite good enough.

It makes sense to get him off the wage bill even if he does go on loan (we will end up paying for some of it, im sure).

Hopefully frees up more space for another replacement

If we want to go anywhere, then we need better than Quinn.

Hard worker, but never stuck to the left when asked to play there causing the LB no end of problems and I rememeber Jim going mental a few times as he wouldn't stick to the instructions.

Wish him good luck, but a player for a bottom 8 side (which i'm hoping we aren't!)

A good squad player who always gave 100% and had a great shot on him, despite scoring so few goals. Again, I wish him all the best, just not quite up to the standard we need.

Though not the worst player in the clubs history by any stretch of the imagination, he was indicative to me of the dive we took in class and attitude.
A very non-Ipswich player as a part of a non-Ipswich side with the wrong mentality etc. If he's to go it means more than just losing a player, it's kind of another notch to regaining a bit of Ipswich's soul and spirit.
We are playing better football and the youth team is a major contributor to what has started to be (yes early doors I know) a more hopeful chapter in the life of the Tractor Boys.
The future's bright, the future's not Quinn

Move him on... lots of heart, but not enough ability... Loan or sell doesn't matter.

I see ChambersM has made a pointless comment again. Quinn will not be in Roy's plans and obviously it is a good idea to get rid of a player who a) isn't good enough b) not played very much over the past two seasons.

This would be a good move all round. Shame a select few find a negative yet again.

Doncaster is about his level I am afraid. May as well ship him out if we can !!!

Sean O'Driscoll has done a fabulous job at Donny Rovers and will probably know Quinner when he played just down the road at Sheffield Utd. Think he will be good signing for them and is a hardworker so can se him fitting in well. I agree with most on here in that he's not the sort of player that's going to make a difference for us and will free up the wage bill. However what makes me nervous is end of August will soon be upon us and we haven't even landed our primary targets yet. So a bit concerned that if we loose a Norris or Leadbitter to injury (waiting to hear results of his injury from Burnley match) we are thin on midfield experience. So think we still need a bit more experienced cover in the wings.
