Jewell: Edwards Has Been a Revelation
Saturday, 16th Apr 2011 09:07
Blues boss Paul Jewell says Carlos Edwards has been "a revelation" since switching from midfield to right-back . The Town manager says he was first impressed with the Trinidadian, whose appearance total has triggered another year on his contract, playing at full-back early on in his career.
Jewell said: “I remember when Carlos played at Wrexham at full-back and I think he’s been a revelation. He probably hasn’t had his two best games of late, but I think he’s been terrific.
“He’s got great recovery, great energy, good use of the ball and he’s got a couple of goals from there as well.
“I’m looking to improve all areas [of the squad in the summer]. If I can improve any area on the pitch and it’s in my budget, I’ll do it, but I think Carlos has been excellent for us.”
Edwards himself says Town have missed out on a good opportunity to push for promotion this season having been inconsistent throughout the campaign: “Looking back at the beginning of the season, we started off well, but we didn’t have what it takes to get that momentum to push us forward and to press.
“We would win one, draw one, win one and then lose five. It’s been a rollercoaster. We never got a decent run going where we could say ‘listen, we are pushing for promotion’ or even staking a claim for a play-off spot. We were not far off, but then again it was so near and yet so far.”

Like my father, I was born and bred in Suffolk. He was a lifetime Ipswich Town supporter. But when I was a boy, back in the 1950s, like many small boys I followed clubs at the top of the old First Division.
Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.

My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
