Blues Among Clubs Linked With Van La Parra Prior to Spanish Move
Thursday, 19th Nov 2020 17:09
Town are reported to have been among a number of English clubs to have shown interest in Dutch winger Rajiv van La Parra, who joined Spanish side UD Logroñés earlier in the week.
According to Voetbal International, Van La Parra, 29, was keen to return to England, where he has previously played for Wolves, Brighton (loan), Huddersfield and Middlesbrough (loan), having left Red Star Belgrade after a year in Serbia.
Prior to joining Logroñés, who play in the second tier in Spain, on a one-year deal it’s reported QPR, Reading and Swansea made concrete offers for the former Dutch U21 international and the Blues also showed interest.
If Town were keen on Van La Parra as claimed, it was presumably prior to the addition of Keanan Bennetts on loan from Borussia Mönchengladbach at the start of October.

One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
