Walters Wins Cap But Ireland Thrashed By Wales
Thursday, 6th Sep 2018 21:48
Blues loan striker Jon Walters won his 54th Republic of Ireland cap as his side were defeated 4-1 by Wales in their opening UEFA Nations League match in Cardiff.
Walters, 34, played the full 90 minutes for Ireland who were well-beaten by the Welsh with former Blues loan man Tom Lawrence among the scorers. Ireland play Poland in a friendly in Dublin on Tuesday.
Elsewhere, Trevoh Chalobah was an unused sub as England’s U20s beat Switzerland 2-0 in a friendly at St George’s Park this afternoon. The England youngsters have another friendly against Holland in Katwijk on Monday.
Meanwhile, the DBU, the Danish FA, and Spillerforeningen, their players’ association, have agreed a temporary solution to their ongoing contractual dispute relating to commercial rights and a number of other terms and Denmark's senior international squad - including Town’s Jonas Knudsen - will now play in Sunday’s Nations League tie in Aarhus on Sunday.

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.
