Nouble: Town Move Makes Up for Wolves Disappointment
Friday, 11th Jan 2013 06:02
Frank Nouble says his move to Ipswich has more than made up for the disappointment of not making an impact at previous club Wolves.
Nouble only moved to Molineux last summer and had four months working with Terry Connor, who recommended him to new boss Stale Solbakken before joining up with Mick McCarthy at Portman Road.
He said: “Terry’s a great guy and a great coach. I’m delighted to be joining two people – Mick and Terry – who are very positive about me. They will encourage me and try to bring out the best in me.
“I never signed for Wolves intending to leave after only six months but these things happen in football. I was happy with the time I was there but I didn’t really get an opportunity to showcase what I could do.
“You just get on with things and now I have a new challenge here at Ipswich that gives me an opportunity to continue my career. In my time at Wolves I played in a Capital One Cup tie at Northampton and scored but after that I was back on the bench.”
Nouble clocked up a total of only five appearances during his time at Molineux – one start and two appearances from the bench in the Capital One Cup plus another two substitute outings in the Championship.

He added: “It was tough because Wolves had just come down from the Premiership. A lot of the players who had stayed on at the club were given more of an opportunity but it didn’t work out with them either and the manager didn’t stay for long.
“In football you just have to live for now and I’m grateful for the chance to come to a club like Ipswich. It’s a new chapter of my life and I’m happy.
“I went to Wolves and thought I was part of their plans. After working hard in pre-season I thought I would get a chance but when I didn’t it was very disheartening. Now I’m here I feel refreshed again and eager to show what I have to offer.”

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
