|Blues Eye Bury Town Youngster|
Friday, 21st Sep 2012 10:16
The Blues are reported to be amongst several Football League clubs keeping an eye on Bury Town defender or midfielder Connor Hall.
The 19-year-old has been on trial at Leyton Orient, while the Blues and Charlton, who signed keeper Nick Pope from the Ryman League Premier Division side last season, have run the rule over the youngster.
Hall broke into the Bury team last season and quickly cemented his place in their defence. He has also represented England Colleges.

Good to hear we are in the running with players from the lower leagues. Sure they'll be people on here moaning, but then it is friday.

If he's half as good as the last player we got from there then get him, but knowing us we won't pay his bus fare so that will be the end of that.

I would say swap him for Smith but not sure Bury Town would want him.

Think our last signing from Bury was Keith Millen rather than Simon Milton, but I'm always happy to see us scouting in the lower leagues.

A young player from our local catchment area. Must be worth a look.

It's so cute when someone cementies their place

Close, but I believe it was Ian Miller. One sub appearance and now living in Grimsby. I bet he wishes he was left in Bury.
|PhilTWTD added 11:11 - Sep 21|
Ian Miller was the most recent, before that Liam Trotter.

Send the scouts to Maidstone United, Tom Mills left sided player. already had Charlton and Reading sniffing around. This time 5 years ago our c/b was Chris Smalling but I dont know what happened to him !

Could also get Billy Clark from Bury Town, oh now we let him go in the first place!
|Blu added 11:32 - Sep 21|
Having seen him play recently I think he is worth a trial, at least. Pacy and skilful and will make the grade somewhere. Why not with us?

Its great to see we're going for players with a good future but at the moment while we're struggling i think we need a big strong defender in their prime now to steady the ship.

I think what people need to realise is ITFC don't pay big wages, the fact we're struggling to sign a player from P'boro who's on a reported £10k a week, just highlights we don't have the money or remit to get big money players and we are what we are (also shows what ridiculous wages players are commanding). All this rubbish about signing people who are on £15k-£20k a week (fringe Prem players) even on loan, is out of our reach, accept it. Fans need to realise we're paying (from what I can see) less that £10k a week for 'decent' players (and we won't have many of those in the squad) and the rest won’t be on ‘big money’. Yes there are other factors too, but people need to understand we're not in a Football Manager computer game, it's real life, it's also business (things I'm sure many of the posters on here don't fully get or appreciate - rightly or wrongly). I'm pretty disillusioned with football as a whole right now (not just Ipswich, the whole industry) and we're not the only club in this position, as you move down the leagues it gets harder and harder for clubs to prosper, what we need is the right team and mentality from top to bottom, again something I’m beginning to feel we don’t have as something doesn’t seem to be working at present, but bar a couple of positions I believe we have the key ingredients. The issue is what we’re willing to pay and that’s not much. I have 18 year olds working for me who seem to think they deserve to walk into a £20k a year job, they have no concept of the bigger picture and business, footballers to me come across as exactly the same, the industry they work in has set silly wages structures which of course the all want a slice of, who wouldn’t, however ITFC can’t compete, end of, so we have to be realistic and get what we can, which to be fair will be a case of sifting through the rubbish to find a gem – which ain’t an easy feat!

Sir Ben .... I agree with everyting you say.
Add in the factor that we now operate under the FFP scheme, dropping attendances mean less money to spend on players, wages, etc.
It's no good staying at home moaning that we never buy anyone. If you really support the club get down to PR and help fill the coffers.

Exactly what the last two comments said ,well said those men .Stop moaning and start supporting like the Saints ,Leeds,Charlton and Scum fans did even after relegation and life in the third tier
|WickedBlue added 14:14 - Sep 21|
Wasn't at the last game though I have seen thrown goal. Seen worse by better players and apart from the own goal Currie reckons Smith had a good game. I'll take the opinion of an ex Ipswich professional player over anyone's on here. So get off Smith back. You got on Delaneys back he wanted out and is playing like a man reborn at Palace. Now the morons want to start on Smith. Then you wonder why our defence plays with no confidence.
As for the story terrific we are looking at players from all walks of football.

WHAT.THE.HELL!? I KNOW HIM! WENT TO SCHOOL WITH HIM, AND USED TO BE 'FRIENDS' WITH HIM. very, very, very, very good player swell, so i'm not listening to anyone else, because i've see him play aLOT of times, and he is VERY good! GET HIM IN!!
