Bialkowski Not Expected to Feature in Penultimate Poland Friendly
Friday, 8th Jun 2018 09:53
Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski isn’t expected to feature when Poland take on Chile in their penultimate pre-World Cup finals friendly in Poznań this evening.
The 30-year-old was named in the Polish 23 for Russia on Monday but is viewed very much as the third-choice glovesman behind Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea) and Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus) and manager Adam Nawalka is believed to be fielding what he sees as his strongest team against the Chileans.
Bialkowski, who said earlier in the week that making the squad was “a proud moment”, is more likely to play some part during Tuesday’s final friendly against Lithuania in Warsaw.
The Poles have been drawn in World Cup Group H along with Senegal, Colombia and Japan.
Town defender Jonas Knudsen was named in Denmark’s 23 for Russia on Sunday and his squad play their final friendly before travelling against Mexico at the Brøndby Stadion on Saturday evening.

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.
