Blues and Sunderland Linked With Aberdeen Forward Wright
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 23:37
Town and Sunderland have been linked with a move for Aberdeen forward Scott Wright.
According to the Scottish Sun, the Blues and Black Cats are both eyeing the 22-year-old with the Dons said to value the Scotland U21 international, who is contracted until 2021, at £500,000.
It’s claimed the Blues made a move for Wright, who can play down the middle, out wide or as a number 10, last season and have now renewed their interest while the Wearsiders are also keen.
Wright came through the youth system at his hometown club before breaking into the first team in 2014. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Dundee.
Having added Will Keane to the squad earlier in the week, it would be a surprise if Town were to move for another frontman, certainly one who would cost a fee.
However, speaking this morning, manager Paul Lambert didn’t entirely rule out making a further addition before the transfer window closes on September 2nd.
“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.”

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.

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.

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.
