Tabb Training With Burton Albion
Tuesday, 12th Jul 2016 13:50
Released Blues midfielder Jay Tabb is training with Championship new boys Burton Albion.
Tabb, 32, left Portman Road at the end of last season after just over three years at Portman Road having initially joined on loan from Reading in March 2013.
The former Republic of Ireland U21 international made only four appearances during 2015/16, all in cup competitions, scoring once.
Speaking at the end of last season, manager Mick McCarthy paid tribute to Tabb: “He’s been fabulous, he’s one who without playing a [Championship] game all season could have won the ‘most selfless player award’ because he comes and trains every day.
“When he’s played in the cup games he’s played well, he trains well, he’s a prime example to any young player. He really is a fantastic character.”
In total, the one-time Brentford and Coventry man made 61 starts and 24 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring five goals.

“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
