McCarthy Confirms McGoldrick Out for Season
Friday, 23rd Feb 2018 11:41
Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed striker David McGoldrick will be out for the rest of the season after tearing a tendon in his groin in training earlier in the week. The 30-year-old could have played his last game for the Blues with his contract up at the end of the campaign.
“I don’t think he’ll be operated on but it will keep him out for about 10 weeks so that’s him finished for the season,” McCarthy told iFollow Ipswich.
“He’s been a big player for us and the injury situation has been very unfortunate for him and the team. We have good physios here and we’ll have him up and running as soon as possible.”
Regarding McGoldrick’s future, he added: “It’s a difficult one when you’re nearing the end of your contract and you’re injured.
“It’s open for both parties so it’s down to Didz and the club to have a chat and we’ll see what happens.
“He needs to get his injury sorted first and then him and his representatives will see what the situation is.”

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.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
