McCarthy Already Considering Extending Spence's Contract
Thursday, 16th Feb 2017 16:21
Town boss Mick McCarthy says he’s already considering offering recent signing Jordan Spence a longer term contract.
The 26-year-old joined the Blues on a deal to the end of the season last month having previously spent time on trial at Portman Road in September and October when he played two games for the U23s.
The former West Ham and MK Dons man, primarily a right-back, has made three starts and two sub appearances for Town in a variety of positions, most recently on the right of the back three.
“He’s done very well,” McCarthy said. “It makes you wonder why and how he’s not somewhere else. He came here [in September] and Chambo was playing right-back and we had Josh Emmanuel, of course, so circumstances were different.
“He didn’t stay, he went elsewhere and the fact that he was still available in the January window was to our benefit.
“And to his because he’s come and he’s played and he’s done very, very well and we’d have to be looking and thinking, ‘Can we give him a longer deal?’.
“But that’s for another day, let him keep playing, let’s keep getting performances and results with him in the team.”

First up, a confession. I didn't attend a single Ipswich Town game last season. It was the first season in about a decade that I completely sat out.

What's the Stay Away Fans' Excuse Now? An Open Letter to Certain Town Fans by MikeDove33
To my fellow Ipswich Town fans, I’ve often thought about writing an open letter to other Ipswich fans over the past 1-2 years. I always eventually went off the idea, due to the fact that the negativity it may have received from certain fans who only seem to thrive on matters of a negative nature at ITFC, would outweigh any positive outcome.
A Question of Balance by HarryfromBath
There have been a number of interesting threads on the forum in recent weeks juxtaposing our decent start this season with, well, everything we had to endure in the last campaign.
