Priskin: I Want to Leave Town
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.

Why does Ellington keep getting compared with Priskin? Ellington was a free transfer brought in to see if Jewell could revive his fortunes, whereas Priskin was a £1.7M signing probably on three or four times Ellington's salary. Compare Priskin to Chopra, yes, but not Ellington.

As for saying Chopra has flopped, the man has scored 2 goals in 6 games for us (1 in 3) whereas Priskin got 5 in 39 (1 in 7.8).

If I am reading Priskin correctly here he is saying that he wants to play, Jewell will not play him and so he wants to leave. I understand that.

How many bad books does Jewell have?

Tamas... Take a long hard look at yourself.... Scoring one notable goal against the gunners is not going to get you a move... Leeds didnt want you and they were desperate....

Off topic a bit, but anyone knocking Chopra must be blind. The poor guy must be getting so frustrated. Give him the openings, and I guarantee he will score (not every time, obviously, but regularly). Chopra got into the right position on two occasions against B'pool, was screaming for the ball, and would have put it in the net if Murphy had passed to him. Would have been fairly simple chances for a striker of his class. PJ, give us a couple of real wingers, please! As for Priskin, I don't think he was given enough of a chance, but then, he didn't really take the opportunities that WERE offered to him. Best for both parties that he moves on.

a player with the potential to change a game, beat a player and add some skill to the side. Had a period last season when he was given he chance and he was man of the match on here several games in a row, people forget that. All i can assume is that his attitude is wrong, but then if i saw the rabble we are turning out week in week out knowing that i was thought not even good enough for the bench, not sure i would be smiling!

is he still here ? didn't the dark lord take his stormbloopers with him ?

bluelady - that's a good post - I think my attitude would perhaps be suspect too.
With the lack of service Chopra is getting watch this space for indications of another unhappy striker - and can we continue to alienate players like these ? - NO.
Time for a shared glass to drown the current sorrows maybe.

bluelady - ......... and your posts have become a pleasure to read because your love of the Club is obvious, all credit for that - but the blue tints are no longer showing a bias against the reality of what is actually happening at the Club.

Wish I could say the same about many of the other posts - but each to there own I suppose.
