Ainsley and Thorsteinsson Also Released
Thursday, 4th Apr 2013 14:36
Manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed that, as reported earlier, Ronan Murray, Joe Whight and Cormac Burke will not be offered new terms by the Blues at the end of the season. The Town boss has also revealed that Icelandic U19 international Gunnar Thorsteinsson and defender Jack Ainsley, who is currently on loan at Chelmsford, will also be released.
McCarthy said: "They are all great lads but they need to go out and play. I've told them that they won't be good enough for my first team and that they won't be offered new deals.
“I hope they go on to prove me wrong and make careers for themselves, but right now they need to go out and play regularly for their development."

I’ve read blogs suggesting we are a tax haven for a faceless owner.

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
