Barnett: Joining Town a Nice Surprise
Monday, 19th Nov 2012 17:48
New loan signing Tyrone Barnett says joining Town came as a “nice surprise” after what had been a difficult week. The Peterborough striker had been fined and put on the transfer list after breaching club discipline.
The 27-year-old, who is with the Blues until January 19th, told the club site: “I got a phone call this morning saying Ipswich wanted me and it was a nice surprise.
“It’s been a difficult week, with what’s gone on so I’m looking at this as a new start and the chance to get back to playing football and enjoying my football as well.
“I’ve not done that as much as I would have liked this season. Ipswich have given me a chance to come here and play some games and hopefully score some goals and that’s what I’m looking to do.
“It’s a fantastic football club. I have some good memories of the place after scoring here last season in one of my first games. Now I want to score goals for the club and I can’t wait to get going.”
Last week, the striker, club captain Gaby Zakuani, Emile Sinclair and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing were all transfer-listed and fined after an early hours incident outside a nightclub in Peterborough city centre. Zakuani and Sinclair have subsequently been taken off the list and have had their fines quashed.

Nice signing. Hopefully view to permanent as I heard from a Posh fan that him and Taylor linked up well with each other last season. But for now, we just need Edwards giving him good service from the wing along with Cresswell. Hopefully Murphy on the way out too.

if zakuani is on the list as well...maybe he'd be a good shout!??? He's very very good, would be well worth the outlay!

It would be a nice surprise if you help us start winning games

I think that this will be a good signing. At this moment in time we need to think short-term and (if) once we climb out of the bottom three then MM will then think about the bigger picture
Lets face it the current Town team is awful and anyone that improves the quality is welcome. If Tyrone Barnett starts scoring then I won't be surprised if he is given a 'second chance' at Posh. But at the moment I don't care as its all about short-term.

Decent player but it probably means DJ will be leaving :(
C'Mon CHOPS!! Get the finger out!!

Not sure why we need him
Posh paid a million for him less than a year ago now they want shot of him.
Posh below us so why would they get rid of a goalscorer who could get them out of trouble.
If he was any good a fine and a slap on the wrist
4 goals in 23 games worst than Chopra Murphy and Scotland

Karlosfandangal - interesting point you make - strange how some people still see every player that comes here as a 'star player' - and never checks the 'stats' or history.
But in McCarthy - WE MUST TRUST - AND WE DO.

Welcome to Town Tyrone! If you play as well as I have seen you play when you were at Crawley then we are in for a real treat. Absolute beast with pace and power and scares the living sh$te out of defenders when he's in the groove.
|MattinLondon added 21:51 - Nov 19|
David Johnston, Jon Walters and Alan Lee weren't 20 a goal strikers just before they joined us but they did ok.

@mattinlondon, fair point, but Johnson was! He always looked handy against us for bury
|Michael11 added 22:55 - Nov 19|
Shame Zakuani and Sinclair didn't come too but beggars can't be choosers! Hopefully he'll replace Murphy as the target man in the side, a bit more pace in our side is definitely welcome!

Let's hope you give us all some nice surprises & not problematic ones.

Welcome Tyrone ... Now show us what you have ... Goals Goals AND MORE Goals
|Kesgraveblue57 added 08:42 - Nov 20|
Tyrone now your here grow up this could well be your last real chance in the game. You are nothing special at the moment, prove me wrong! I don't really care if you stay or move on.

Let's hope he has as much luck in front of goal
He really has fallen in a bucket of ***t and come out smelling of roses on this one
He has shown a lack of judgement contributing to his exit at Peterborough, and is now drinking at the last chance saloon. Good luck Leon, although completely different, look at Marlon King and use him as an example...

Peterborough waving the white flag, this move and the "breach of discipline" is all about money folks. Barnett is their record signing and they can't afford to keep him in league one.
|WadeyBlue added 12:09 - Nov 20|
You better f***in score a shed load mate.
Just givin it straight.
|Wickets added 13:57 - Nov 20|
Yer Souperjim and bringing Barnett in will give Murthy the big kick up the, you know where,he so badly needs!!
|Karlosfandangal added 20:36 - Nov 20|
Good point, do hope he is as good as Johnson 22 in his first 30 games.
If he is we are borderline play offs
