Bialkowski's Poland Start World Cup Campaign
Tuesday, 19th Jun 2018 09:47
Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski’s Poland get their World Cup under way this afternoon when they face Senegal at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow in their opening Group H match (ITV from 3.25pm, KO 4pm).
Once-capped Bialkowski, 30, is unlikely to play with Juventus number one Wojciech Szczesny expected to start and Swansea’s Lukasz Fabianski the second choice keeper in the 23-man squad.
The Town glovesman says manager Adam Nawalka's attention to detail goes above and beyond what might be expected.
“Nawalka is very open,” Bialkowski told The Sun. “When he called me for the first time, we talked for a bit and he asked me for my wife’s number - I’m not sure why!
“I found out her just wanted to talk to her when he was in Ipswich watching me. He wanted to call and meet her and my kids as well.
“That shows how important it is for him to get to know not just the players but the families, too.
“He looks into every detail, it’s crazy. He cares about everything; training, meals, everything has to be done at 100 per cent.”

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
