Hurst Not Expecting More Signings Today But One Further Deal Still Possible
Thursday, 9th Aug 2018 15:44
Boss Paul Hurst said he wasn’t expecting any further additions at his pre-match press conference, however, TWTD understands it is possible that Town could add one more player to the squad before the 5pm deadline.
“I don’t think so, I certainly don’t expect anything,” Hurst said when asked whether there might be any more signings today.
“It’s not the weather for people to be stood out in the rain waiting for signings to come in, so I don’t think we’ll have any of that.
“But I’m pleased with what we have done. I think last week I said I’d probably done more business than I envisaged doing and with three signings this week to add to that, there have been quite a few changes.
“From my point of view, that needed to happen, we needed to freshen things up. That’s not a slight on the players that were here. It’s to add to the mix, get a bit of a new feel in, hopefully a little bit of a buzz.
“There are a couple of deals that we’ve missed out on and I still think we’ll have to look into the loan market for one or two more players between now and September. But overall, as I said, I think it’s been a really productive time for us.”
The identity of the potential 10th signing of the summer is as yet unknown.

I am starting to realise that as I grow older, I am harking back to a period of my life which seemed to be idyllic, but it probably was totally different in reality.
Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
