Talks with Ipswich are likely to take place this week and the Tractor Boys are expected to offer McKenna a new deal to convince him to stay at Portman Road.

BBC Sport understands that is expected to fail with the manager, and assistant Martyn Pert, feeling the time is right to move.

Who got the captain's armband when Morsy came off?
at 09:23 24 Dec 2023

Missed who took it when Morsy was subbed, and just wondered if it gave a hint as to who might be captain when he is eventually suspended.

Davis assists relative to last season and the championship record
at 14:13 16 Oct 2023

Davis has got 5 assists in the 10 games he has played so far this season (1 v Sunderland, 1 v Sheffield Wednesday, 2 v Hull, 1 v Preston). That is an assist every other game. And he could have been on more, considering his cross back to Williams at Huddersfield seems to have not been counted as an assist. For comparison, last season he got an incredible 14 assists, yet in our first 11 games he only had 2. That's 3 less than he has at the same stage now, despite us playing higher opposition.

Last year, Davis and Chaplin were joint 2nd for Assist to Goal Scorer in the whole season with 4. This season, after only 11 games, they already have 3.

I believe the record for most assists in the Championship is 19, which Harry Wilson achieved recently for Fulham in 21/22. He got 4 assists in the first 10 games that he played that season. Leif currently has 1 more in the same number of appearances. And although Leif has missed 1 of our 11 games so far, Wilson missed 3 at beginning of the 21/22 season, so by the time he had played 10 games (like Leif has), Fulham had already played 13. That means that, after 10 appearances each, Leif not only has 1 more assist than what Harry Wilson had, but he also has 2 games in hand.

In short, Wilson had 4 assists in Fulham's first 13 games that season. Leif has 5 assists in our first 11.

Hladky's involvement in the goals we have scored
at 09:42 6 Oct 2023

I was interested in how many goals we have scored where Hladky has played a part in the build up by making a key pass or passing out when under pressure from the opposition.

Stoke (2nd goal)
Hladky pressed by opposition player, 6 passes later: goal.

Sheffield Wednesday
Hladky pressed by opposition player, 4 passes later: goal.

Blackburn (2nd goal)
Wolfie comes to take the ball off of Hladky but Hladky sees Clarke in space and plays a quick pass to him instead, 3 passes later: goal.

Wolves (1st goal)
Hladky rushes high up the pitch to clear a ball to Harness, 4 passes later: goal.

Hull (2nd goal)
Hladky pressed by 2 opposition players, 6 passes later: goal.

Hull (3rd goal)
Hladky on a freekick, sees Hirst, 2 passes later: goal.

That is at least 6 occasions I can think of where he has made a key pass or pass under pressure which has then resulted in us scoring a goal a few seconds later. In all the league games and one cup game Hladky has played in so far, we have scored 24 goals. That means that he has had a key involvement in 1/4 of our goals. And that doesn't even include any other goals we have scored by playing out from the back (such as the 20 passes leading to Taylor's goal against Wolves, of which Hladky had 2).

Anyway, I just found that interesting.
