Taylor: Keane is On a Building Process
Monday, 18th Nov 2019 17:42
Blues assistant manager Stuart Taylor says it’s a case of building striker Will Keane up and not giving him too many games too soon at present.
Keane rejoined Town on a permanent basis in the summer after leaving Hull City following his loan spell at the end of last season, the former Manchester United youngster having undergone hamstring surgery early in the close season.
The 26-year-old played the full 90 minutes in the FA Cup tie against Lincoln but was left out of the 18 entirely for the Leasing.com Trophy tie at Colchester four days later.
“We need to make sure we’re not going to put him back by doing too much with him too soon. Saturday-Tuesday is quite a lot for players coming back after long-term injuries and Will comes under that category, so we looked at it and it was a little bit much too soon.
“But we need to be careful we don’t push him over that line too quickly too soon. It’s about getting as much as we possibly can out of him but being sensible with it and not pushing it too far.”
“You’re talking about three very very good strikers there who can all play as a lone striker when needed but can also play as a twin pairing.
“They’re all good enough to do that and they’re all intelligent enough to do it, they know the roles to do it, so they’re good options that we’ve got.”

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
