Town Lodge Three Bids
Town Lodge Three Bids
Saturday, 14th Jan 2012 19:56

Town boss Paul Jewell has revealed that he has lodged bids for three players. The Blues manager is looking to strengthen throughout his squad during the January transfer window.

Jewell told the club site: "We have been in contact with two clubs today and offers have been made for three players.

"It's early stages and we will see how things develop. It's a case of waiting for a response but obviously we are looking to strengthen the squad.

"We have got a few injuries but hopefully we will have some additions to the squad before the Leeds game next weekend. As I said, though, we will have to wait and see."

Meanwhile, midfielder Andy Drury says he and the rest of the squad are frustrated after letting their two goal lead slip against Blackpool: "The boys are a bit gutted after playing so well, but then letting a lead slip like that.

"I thought we did well enough to take all three points today and we're all a bit frustrated, more than anything, in the dressing room to have only drawn the game.

"We maybe could have won it at the end with Lee's chance but we've taken a point and we have to focus on the next game now and prepare for that."

Elsewhere, striker Ronan Murray has returned to the Blues at the end of his loan at Swindon. The 20-year-old has tweeted that the clubs are in discussions regarding his permanent move to the County Ground: "Now going back to Ipswich because my loan is up today. The clubs are talking at the minute so I'm stuck in the middle!"

Murray came off the bench in today's 2-1 win at Rotherham, his sixth sub appearance in addition to four starts and having scored two goals.

Former Blue Jimmy Juan scored on his debut for Chesterfield as the Spireites drew 1-1 at Leyton Orient.

This will be proof of whether he is actually planning for the long term.

"you're not Jimmy Juan, you're not Jimmy Juan ... " whenever a free-kick was missed. Happy memories!

The curious contradiction within fan behaviour concerning transfer activity.

When nothing is reported, fans complain that the manager isn't doing anything.

When the media press the manager to reveal he is in negotiations, fans complain saying the manager should keep quiet until signings are complete.

When the club announces a string of completed signings, fans complain that the club is panic buying.

Never has the phrase "damned if you do, damned if you don't" seemed so apt.

When I typed in Kipper, predictive tx came up with Muppet! Funny that.

keep Murray - get rid of Priskin , Murray would have passion and youth( as well as gt ability) - we saw today how far that can get you !!

Lets play guess the collective age of the three players bids have been lodged for!

My guess is 101 years!

Gio must take ages eating fried chicken! I see him sharing a large bucket with another mysterious looking Mexican in the pioneer stand. They were sharing a large diet coke!!

How many noticed the quote about Murreys stats at Swindon "Murray came off the bench in today's 2-1 win at Rotherham, his sixth sub appearance in addition to four starts". In other words he's not even a regular starter for them. yet some think he should be in our team!

Can anyone give a good reason for keeping Paul Jewell as manager? I was saying "give him a chance" to my mate who is a stoke fan. He said "why?". I was stumped. Guess we have him until the end of the season now. Maybe he will be given the chance to rebuild in league 1. Oh good.

Sounds like more tosh from Clegg's "Management for Dummies". "Tell them what they want to hear"

Good luck getting anyone interesting when we're 20th in the table and about to be drawn into a relegation battle.
