Skipper Chambers Linked With Chicago Fire
Monday, 4th Mar 2019 16:18

Town skipper Luke Chambers is reportedly a target of MLS side the Chicago Fire.

According to the Daily Mail, the Fire are keen to add a central defender to their squad with Chambers said to fit the bill both from a playing and financial perspective.

Chambers is out of contract with the Blues in the summer but with the club having an option to keep him for a further season.

Manager Paul Lambert recently said he had spoken to his captain, who joined Town on a free transfer in 2012 after leaving Nottingham Forest, about staying at Portman Road beyond this season, stating that Chambers, 33, and Cole Skuse, 32, both have a massive part to play in the club going forward.

He added that owner Marcus Evans is also set to talk to the one-time Northampton defender about his future.

Muhrensleftpeg: Very nicely put, balanced & can be milk monitor.

Monarchblue: Disgraceful, must do much better.........headmasters office now......& a note to your parents!

Whatever Luke decides to do, he has given amazing service to our club, and when the chips have been down, has never given less than 100%
He should be treated with the maximum respect fro as long as he is part of the furniture at PR

It’s not personal He’s a great man but his football days were up 2 seasons ago

Left peg.....A brilliant post and so true. I remember those days so well, the red stripe in the football, Alan Brazil's afro, the guy in the stands with the air horn that sounded like something off an american muscle car and the outstanding play from unsung heroes (one of which was Clive Woods, my all time favourite). Thank you for bringing that back to me.

73.....Sorry mate, it's my age!!! and theres no way I would compare you to SWN98, shame on you for thinking that !!!!

Ipswich 6 v Man Utd 0, a period when I just assumed we would beat anyone. On the other side of the coin is the 9 Man Utd put past us at Old Trafford. I just wish that someone would score 10 to take us out of the record books.

Bert.....same here mate!
Just replayed the 6-0 on youtube, Mills playing as a holding midfielder as John Walk out due to Father's death. Could Chambers do this...No he couldn't, so I totally agree with everyone who put that Chambers is so far out of Micky Mill's league its unreal!!! Those really were the days and anyone brought up in this era has EVERY right to expect our team to have fight, just as they did back then! They turn up for the pay slip and nothing else.

ITFCsince73 Sado possibly.......but far better that, than being one of the scumbags that drove MM out!

Monarch_Blue added 17:21 - Mar 6
1RWR clearly I must be a disgrace praising an ITFC player who may not have been the most talented, but always gave 100%. Obviously being a scumbag who drove out MM is far more acceptable. I would be surprised if you could find the headmaster's office!

ITFCsince73 added 18:31 - Mar 6
Monarch blue. MM left some time back. For whatever reasons. He’s now got himself a good job in football. As a club we are moving on to. I’m very sure,to a much better period than we’ve had since administration.
Luke Chambers hopefully can go to the USA and earn a fortune to set him up for life.
It’s a win win alround.
As a club, by that I mean everyone, supporters etc. Must now look to a brighter future.
That’s the least us supporters deserve.

....good job we didn't have an injury list as we do back then. With the squad size back in the day we'd be fielding a 5-a-side team every week! Remember having Panini stickers on my headboard of the squad as a kid, would need a much bigger bed now!

Chambo' you're a top man, model professional, and done the Club well.

But as with everyone, age eventually has it's draw backs - time to drag a lighter harrow, and coin as much in as you can.

Sad, in many ways - but time to make that last move, and make the most of it.

chambo always gives 100% for this club and you sados who always mock him should hang your heads in shame

bluemike1969 added 09:40 - Mar 7
Its just a shame over the last season its 100% poor. Mickey Stockwell always gave 100% and ran his socks off. Yes, he often had a 'bad game' but for every bad game he had, he always had four or five excellent ones. Can anyone tell me that Chambers has none the same, I think not?
Agreed, a good servant to the club in the last 7 years but shouldn't have been playing these last two virtually every game and certainly not this year. His disgraceful defending has cost us dearly, take Saturday as a prime example and move on!
