|Priskin: I Want to Leave Town|
Monday, 12th Sep 2011 13:19
Striker Tamás Priskin says he wants to go on loan to a team where he will play regularly and leave the Blues permanently either in January or at the end of the season. The Hungarian, a £1.7 million buy from Watford in the summer of 2009, has yet to feature for Town this season.
Speaking to the Hungarian media, the 24-year-old said: "I enjoy my role in the Hungarian national team, I recorded an assist against Sweden but my situation is not the same at Ipswich.
"I don't think I'll be in the squad for our next game and I'm sure I won't play. Simply, they don't rely on me. I don't get the chance from Paul Jewell, I'm in his bad books.
"Fortunately my contract will expire in [June] 2012, so I can sign to anywhere next summer. I'm sure this is my last season here, I don't want to stay.
"It would be great to go on loan to a team where I can play regularly, this would be the most important thing for me at the moment. Then I'll see in January, I'll go to another club if I get the possibility."
Priskin, who was close to joining Leeds on loan last month before the Elland Road club pulled out at the last minute, says he’d like to stay in England, but dismisses claims he was near to signing for ex-loan club Swansea earlier in the summer: "Germany or Holland are attractive for me but the country and the football I really like is here in England.
"I like and have got used to this atmosphere and it would be a dream to play in the Premier League again.
"I've heard that I had been linked with Swansea but I hadn't received a concrete offer and they bought two strikers."
The frontman has made 34 starts and 24 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring nine goals. While with Town the Slovakia-born striker has spent time on loan at QPR in addition to last season's spell at Swansea.

Haha you all say that but how can you say ellington is better than tamas .. After the arsanal game everyone licked his arse now everyone cant stand him even know he aint done nothing wrong. Tamas you deserve to leave town and I wish you good luck wherever you go, you a nice bloke to speak to and I wish you all the best :)

I liked him.
He has alot of starts and subs so he's had some what of a chance.
However when every he got into a bit of form, he'd have an off game and was dropped by Keane.
Much rather giving Priskin more of a chance as he's young and could be here longer then Ellington and Scotland who are too old.
Really rated Priskin and best of luck to him where ever he goes.
Will do with a decent creative midfield.
|itfc1981 added 13:29 - Sep 12|
Best thing he has done! fine him for two weeks wages.
|TractorMan added 13:29 - Sep 12|
Ellington is a proven goalscorer over a number of seasons, Priskin has one good one for Watford.
More importantly, don't want players who don't want to be here. Either knuckle down or sling it...
|Lightningboy added 13:30 - Sep 12|
Waste of space,waste of money..get him off the wage bill asap along with Leadbitter.

Maybe if you got your head down and worked harder you would get a chance.It does not sound like you want to get back into the team so we maybe are better off moving u on and bring someone who wants to play for Town in.

Well i was relieved when PJ replaced the 'nut' and PJ's first job to keep us up was achieved (no matter how) but PJ's bubble looks to have burst now and his selection of teams is very very worrying, so Tamas i feel for you as you did not get a fair crack of the whip and unless PJ is going to start selecting COMMON SENSE i dont blame you for leaving because this club got more trouble coming, two heavy defeats and team selections that make Keane look clever are very worrying times at Portman Road (again)
|blueherts added 13:36 - Sep 12|
Yep - good iddance - spoke to people at Watford - who work at club , in the Academy -He was very lazy , so no surprise he has no 'desire' to fight for his place - At least Scotland came back fitter and hungrier
|Bergholtblue added 13:37 - Sep 12|
Both Scotland and Priskin have been pushed down the pecking order. Scotland on one hand knuckles down, works hard, fights to get back into reckoning and earns acknowledgement from Jewell for this.
Priskin on the other hand bleats to the press.
|legoman added 13:37 - Sep 12|
We are just not good enough as a club to make the most of players like Priskin. Which is why I am more of a follower these days rather than a supporter.
|Lord_Mac added 13:41 - Sep 12|
Agree with legoman. We bring in no end of good players, especially strikers (Chopra, Scotland, Priskin, Elington, Bowyer, etc etc) - and NONE of them ever seem to emulate what they did at their previous clubs. So is it the players, or is it the club? We've got a really good team of individuals on paper, yet our performance record is abysmal. In terms of points earned per pound spent, we must be bottom of the table, and have been ever since Marcus' cash started to be splashed.

How can anyone be happy about this? Priskin is far better than Ellington and judging by Murphy's performance on Sat, better than him as well. Priskin showed what he can do against Arsenal and Millwall the following Saturday, two well taken goals when one on one. Should be in the team along side Choppra if not instead of him. Why is no-one slagging off Choppra, he's done nothing for the last five games. This maybe because he hasn't got the service from midfield, but there again nether did Priskin! Best of luck Tamas where ever you go. A decision which will be the first of many nails in Paul Jewells Coffin!

And the clubs coffin psg.

not a prolific scorer, but then was never given the chance to be.
|menacinho added 13:46 - Sep 12|
Never fulfilled his promise. Seems to have a much more negative attitude to regaining his place than Jason Scotland and doesn't have the same finishing capability. PJ sees them in training every day so knows which ones are getting their heads down and fighting for their place.
However, I wish him good luck for the future; will be remembered for the goal against Arsenal.

Town: We Want Priskin to Leave

Interesting that Tamas says he is "in Jewell's bad books" . Why?
and if so , then perhaps Tamas needs to look at why he was in two managers (Keane's & now Jewell's )"bad books"
|Brazils_Hair added 13:50 - Sep 12|
I cant profess to having any insider knowledge about Tamas and the reasons why he has never seemed to settle, however I do remember thinking that he was a good signing at the time. As such, it is a shame that he has not managed to secure a regular place in the starting line up, particularly at a time when we are struggling for goals! I wish him all the best in the future.
|62WasBest added 13:55 - Sep 12|
I get the sense that PJ hasn't handled TP very well. He may not be Jewell's idea of a forward but it cannot be disputed that he has never given him a chance with a run. Because of this there will always be a question mark over whether he could have formed part of an effective strike force with our new forwards.
You could say that PJ may never have seen enough in training to justify TP's inclusion, but some players are match day players like Allan Hunter. If only Priskin is given a chance under Jewell can it be laid to rest the doubt, but it sounds too late for that.
|MickMillsTash added 13:58 - Sep 12|
Looked a good signing when we made it but so did Scotland, Chopra, Ellington Murphy, Healy etc... None of the forwards have had any decent service in the last 4 years so hard to moan too much about any of them.
If he does not fit into the Jewell master plan- is this written on a bookies slip in the passenger foot well of his car? then I hope that he can find another club quickly and succeed.
