Cook: Bonne to Stay Longer Term? We'll Wait and See
Friday, 24th Sep 2021 10:41
Town manager Paul Cook says it must be amazing for striker Macauley Bonne to score goals for the club he supports in front of his family but was coy when asked whether there had been any discussions regarding keeping the loanee from QPR longer term.
Ipswich-born Bonne has already netted five goals since joining the Blues on a season-long loan from the West Londoners in the summer, including Saturday’s winner at Lincoln.
Asked whether there had been any talks regarding Bonne, who moved to the Hoops for £2 million from Charlton in October last year, staying longer term, Cook said: “Macauley, obviously as everyone knows, is such a big Ipswich Town fan and to be scoring those goals in front of your own supporters must have a value that no money brings.
“It must be something for his family and himself, it must be amazing. All I'd say is long may it continue and it will continue for as long as he's here, and how long that is, we will wait and see.”
Earlier in the week, QPR manager Mark Warburton played down suggestions he could recall the striker in January, although didn’t rule out doing so.
Bonne is contracted to Rangers until the summer of 2023 with the Loftus Road club having an option to keep him for a further season.

There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues 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.
