|Roberts Dismisses Town Link|
Monday, 13th Jun 2011 23:46
Blackburn striker Jason Roberts has dismissed reports that he was the player at Portman Road today holding talks regarding a move to Town.
The 33-year-old tweeted: "I have only just seen and read the rumours. I can confirm that I am still in Grenada and I have not spoken to anybody from Ipswich!"
Reports of another potential recruit being at the club to speak with Paul Jewell have been circulating on the TWTD Message Board throughout the afternoon with Roberts's former Wigan team-mate Nathan Ellington, who is a free agent having been released by Watford, also rumoured to have been the player involved.
Roberts, who along with Ellington was a member of Jewell’s 2004/05 promotion-winning Wigan side, was initially linked with the Blues in May when the Town boss refused to comment on the speculation.

It seems very weird of phil to say Roberts at club for talks? Then 15mins later Jason says he is in Grenada still on holiday, I wonder who it was at the ground then

Curses it was the Wigan Janitor with a Jason Roberts mask on - and he would have got away with it if it wasn't for those pesky tweets.

If a big black guy was talking with PJ, and its not Jason Roberts, perhaps its Olafinjana of Cardiff.
Now that would be a powerhouse for our midfield.

Wasn't St. Ledger supposed to be at PR today ? And the Colchester player ?
|bedsitfc added 07:57 - Jun 14|
very good player but i would like to see the average age of the squad go down, i know having an old head in defence can be invalueable but not sure about up front.

I remember the last Watford reject we bought. Once bitten twice shy.
|MaySixth added 09:18 - Jun 14|
Classic messageboard rumour. EMBARASSING.
