Lambert Could Make Further Additions
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 11:33
Blues boss Paul Lambert says this week’s three signings might not be the end of Town’s summer business with the transfer window closing for League One and Two clubs on September 2nd.
Kane Vincent-Young, Anthony Georgiou and Will Keane joined the squad earlier this week and he says if the right players become available there might be further additions.
“If people come up and I think it’s going to benefit the team and the club, then we’ll look at it,” he said. “We’ve still got another few days to go.”
Having added players to his squad, might some of the fringe players now go out on loan? “I don’t know, I really don’t know. Number one, somebody’s got to want them, somebody’s got to pick up the phone. But I don’t know, I’ll decide.”
Asked whether Bolton keeper Remi Matthews was among his targets earlier in the summer, Lambert dismissed the link: “No.”
Adding: “Remi I knew at Norwich, he was only a kid at Norwich and he did really well there, and he's done well at Bolton every time I've seen him play.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
