McCarthy: Samuel Impressing and Could Be Looked at Longer Term
Thursday, 20th Apr 2017 15:18
Blues boss Mick McCarthy says on-loan Reading striker Dominic Samuel could come into his thinking when he looks to make longer-term additions to his squad in the summer.
“Possibly, of course,” McCarthy said. “He’s here on loan, he’s not had any game time, pretty much because he broke his toe.
“And then as he’s come back Didzy and Freddie have been doing all right, the front players who he would have to replace. That’s why he’s never played.”
But despite having made only three sub appearances the 23-year-old, who has a year left on his Royals contract, has caught McCarthy’s eye in training.
“He’s impressed everybody,” he added. “He’s certainly a good finisher and [he had] his little cameo appearance when he came on and helped up set up the goal against Birmingham.
“He has impressed, I’ve been really pleased with him, so there’s every chance that he’ll get his opportunity this weekend.”

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.
