Knudsen Unused Sub as Denmark Draw
Saturday, 2nd Jun 2018 21:09
Town defender Jonas Knudsen was an unused sub as Denmark drew 0-0 with Sweden in Stockholm in their final friendly before their 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia is announced on Monday.
Jens Stryger Larsen started in the 25-year-old’s preferred left-back slot despite the Udinese man primarily being a right-sided player.
However, Knudsen, who was given the number five shirt for the match, was the only out-and-out left-back in the 27-man preliminary squad which assembled for a training camp in Helsingør and seems likely to be included manager Åge Hareide’s reduced final travelling party.
In March, Knudsen won his third full international cap in a 0-0 friendly draw with Chile, his first since joining Town in the summer of 2015.
Denmark, who have another friendly at home to Mexico next Saturday, will play Peru, Australia and France in the group stages of the finals.
Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski joined up with a 32-man Poland party for a training camp in Arlamow on Tuesday. The final Polish squad is also set to be named on Monday.

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.
