Hurst: Dean's Certainly Not Let Us Down
Thursday, 20th Sep 2018 16:30
Blues manager Paul Hurst has been impressed with keeper Dean Gerken’s displays since his big decision to drop three-times-Player of the Year Bartosz Bialkowski.
Gerken, 33, was brought into the team for the Norwich match just before the international break and has kept the shirt for the last two matches.
“I think I’ve heard the fans singing his name and rightly so because I felt for him a little bit when I made that call and a lot of the talk was more about who wasn’t in the team rather than focusing the lads are in there,” Hurst said.
“Dean’s certainly not let us down, he’s made good saves in the Hull game. I think the Norwich one as it turned out, he didn’t have too many saves to make in truth, but then did well at Hull to keep us in the game, albeit it didn’t help us in the end.
“And then the other night, a couple of big saves at good times and I’m sure he’ll be pleased to get back in the team and show what he can do.”

Anger is Not a Good Emotion by TimS
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.
