Dozzell Set to Start Against Swans
Friday, 5th Oct 2018 20:16
TWTD understands Andre Dozzell will be handed his first start of the season in tomorrow’s game at Swansea.
Dozzell, 19, made his first competitive senior appearance under Paul Hurst as a sub in Tuesday’s 2-0 home defeat to Middlesbrough having missed all but the opening day of last season after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament.
Speaking on Thursday, manager Paul Hurst was coy when asked whether Dozzell, who featured for the last 14 minutes against the Teessiders, might be in the XI against the Swans.
“We’ll see,” he said. “As I’ve said, I don’t think he would go for 90 minutes, that’s my honest view. He may surprise you but that would be my view, so we’ve got to consider that.
“But ultimately we need a result and I’ve got to pick which team I think is best to get that.”

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.
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.
