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.

We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
