Walker: Bart Has Dealt With Tough Year Really Well
Wednesday, 17th Jul 2019 09:44
Keeper-coach Jimmy Walker says Bartosz Bialkowski has dealt with what's been tough year for him really well and came back for pre-season training in great shape.
Poland international Bialkowski, the club’s Player of the Year for three seasons, had a disappointing 2018/19 campaign and then saw a move to Millwall break down towards the end of last month.
“There was a lot of speculation about him in the summer and I wasn’t sure how he would come back when we returned to training but he’s been great,” Walker told iFollow Ipswich.
“He has dealt with everything really well. He’s had a tough year or so. There has been so much going on for him in his head.
“He didn’t reach the standards he set for himself last season and that disappointed him more than anyone else.
“We all know Bart’s qualities and if he can get back to that level that will be fantastic for everyone.
“He has come back in great shape and from a selfish point of view, I’m delighted because with Tomas [Holy] it gives me two fantastic keepers pushing for a first-team place.”

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
