Dobra Impresses as Albania U21s Win
Friday, 4th Jun 2021 19:35
Blues forward Armando Dobra was named man of the match and won a penalty as Albania’s U21s beat Andorra 3-0 away in their opening European Championships qualifying group game this evening.
Dobra, who was winning his fourth U21s cap, started and won the 43rd-minute spot-kick - which Anis Mehmeti converted - when he was brought down in the area.
The 20-year-old, who was subbed in the 67th minute, is now set to return home and won’t be involved in Tuesday’s friendly in Bulgaria to give him a longer break ahead of the Blues’ return for pre-season training on June 25th.
Like most of the rest of the current first-team squad, Dobra has been told he can leave this summer should Town receive an acceptable offer.
However, the London-born youngster said on Saturday that he is determined to get himself into the Town side in 2021/22: “My goal is to play with the first team in Ipswich.”

Power of Motivation by LegendRay

Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
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?
