|Town Linked With Move for Bowyer|
Saturday, 2nd Jul 2011 23:33
Town are being linked with a move for veteran midfielder Lee Bowyer, who is a free agent after leaving Birmingham at the end of the season.
The Blues are reported to be in talks with the 34-year-old former Charlton, Leeds, West Ham and Newcastle man regarding a deal which would make him amongst the highest earners at Portman Road. Derby are also understood to be in the hunt.
The controversial 5ft 9in tall Londoner won one full England cap when a Leeds player in 2002, in addition to 13 U21 caps.
Town are certainly in the market for central midfield players with loanee Jimmy Bullard and skipper David Norris no longer at the club.
On Friday, Blues boss Paul Jewell said he expected to make another signing on Tuesday with a further deal likely before the end of the week.

Maybe years ago he was controversial but for me not any more. Brings experience, fight and goals and I think a awesome signing. He was good when I saw him last year so the age wouldn't bother me for a season at least.

The key word here is, 'Linked'.

For the love of God nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Would replace Norris' goals, although may be later in his career he'll be doing a more defensive role?

Steel in the centre of midfield, just what we need. Just make sure he behaves PJ.

Reminds me of how I felt when we signed Ben Thatcher!

Lee bowyer Is a great CM... Especially at this level... What ever he has done if he joins us let it go!... Great signing this would be on a free! And this could be one of the players jewell is hoping to conclude a deal with later next week.

Re-sign ben thatcher? Seriously he would be a decent signing.
|ipsuefa added 23:51 - Jul 2|
Agree Bowyer was a bad boy in his prime but to me he seems reformed from interviews ect....what has he done in the last 5 years to warrant all these comments implying that he is a thug?
|shropshiretractor added 23:52 - Jul 2|
Adam Tanner too!
I thought we were building a team that would gel and work well together? So are we getting 11 signings from the zoo then?
|mutters added 23:52 - Jul 2|
Please god no, anybody but him
|AbujaBlue added 23:53 - Jul 2|
Must we really have to wait until Monday for this story to be quashed? The thought of sitting through Sunday with this thug being linked to our club is unbearable.
|shropshiretractor added 23:53 - Jul 2|
ipsuefa, - he probably has a super-injunction on anything bad so we wouldn't know!
He may even be spending his summer as a mercenary in Libya for all we know...!!
|Blue4life added 23:58 - Jul 2|
WOW People need to move on... He wouldnt be playing football if people hadnt forgiven him!! If we want to gain promotion players of his quality need to sign! He scored goals in prem for B'Ham so he would he champ for sure + can play defensive role...
Get over his past... its history... Sign him up PJ!

So sorry, we shouldn,t sign anyone controversial, lets sign mother Teresa & julie andrews then, they would really bolster our midfield.

OMG are we aiming to become Chelsea Pensioners AFC....Noooooooooooooooooo!!!!
|bedsitfc added 00:02 - Jul 3|
help me i dont know what he has done so wrong apart from handbags with dyer.
|mutters added 00:03 - Jul 3|
Blue4life - sorry there are some thing that can not be forgiven. he may have been young but what he and the rest of those leeds players did was disgusting.
are you saying you would be happy to sign a budgie as you seem happy to forget the past?
|shropshiretractor added 00:06 - Jul 3|
Julie Andrews can fly, so yes I would go with that! Teresa might not fully compliment Leadbitter in midfield though...
|pinewoodblueboy added 00:06 - Jul 3|
Mutters/marshallsmullet. Let him without sin cast the first stone!!!!!!!!!!
|bedsitfc added 00:06 - Jul 3|
mutters - what did him and the leeds players do??
i must have missed something
|sherborneblue added 00:08 - Jul 3|
Forgetting Tesfaye Bramble
|mutters added 00:09 - Jul 3|
They chase an asian student down and beat he fairly severely. Can't stand anything to do with racist, has no place in this world. They may have been young, misguded but true colours came out
