Knudsen Named in Danish World Cup Squad
at 19:21:11

I am made up for Jonas,as I am sure he is.It is a big thing to play in the World Cup.

This can only benefit,not only him;but Ipswich,as he will experience different training methods and play with top class players,

Good luck !

Final Chance for Knudsen to Impress Ahead of World Cup Squad Announcement
at 16:19:05

Like a lot on here think Jonas is better in a back 3.A whole hearted player and defender.
Cant be too bad as wouldn't be in the Danish World Cup Squad.

Nobody has mentioned Bart;but hope both he and Jonas make the final cut,and wish them both well in their international careers,and of course for Town.

Rotherham Boss Keen on Emmanuel Return But Expects Hurst to Want Him at Town
at 18:05:50

Bluerthanthou.I thought Cotter looked good in the right back/wing back position too;but don't think we have seen enough of him to judge whether he is better than Josh.

If Gareth Southgate,and the top Premiership Managers can move players around then so can Paul Hurst.In some ways Emmanuel reminds me of Kyle Walker who fits that category;so it could be possible to play them both

If Chambo can play that position,then anything is possible lol !!!

West Ham in Portman Road Friendly Talks
at 20:02:29

Yet another step in the right direction,as there are a lot of Hammers fans all over Essex including the North East,which is only 25/30 miles from Portman Rd.This will help swell the coffers which have been somewhat depleted recently.If not possible then how about Steijn's Dutch side?

Like most am looking forward to this season more than I have in almost a decade.I am one of those who renews regardless,and although I am sure this appointment will sell a few more season tickets;it would sell many more if the early bird deadline had been extended like it was last year.

Will be surprised if the Irish jaunt is repeated next year

Rotherham Boss Keen on Emmanuel Return But Expects Hurst to Want Him at Town
at 19:49:12

Don't think Josh was any worse than Jordan Spence or Dominic Iorfa.The former can play in the centre,and the latter has gone;so Emmanuel has a fair chance of getting game time this season I hope,when he returns.

Skuse: Exciting Times Ahead
at 19:41:07

I thought Cole Skuse played better at the tail end of last season when the restrictions he played under with Mick were lifted somewhat .

Having said that i didn't like McCarthy making it clear that Skusey plus one or two others were shoo ins regardless.Hopefully that wil now change;and if a player comes in and does well he keeps his place

Town Confirm Hurst Appointment
at 14:14:42

Welcome to Ipswich Town Paul Hurst.

Whilst not my preferred appointment he was certainly my second.Has a very good CV at lower league level,and apart from first season at Shrewsbury was always looking up for promotions.

Have already said that Marcus must also take much credit for this mini-coup.This year he has certainly gone up in my estimation.Perhaps he will now deem to attend Shareholders AGM.

Certainly looking forward to the new season much more than have recently.

Meanwhile Paul,now you have this sorted,enjoy the rest of your holiday.Interesting that between that and takng over properly you are enhancing coaching

Town: We Have Conducted Ourselves Under EFL Guidelines
at 20:16:03

I am pleased the club have issued this rebuttal,which should conclude the matter.
Club has been approached by ME, albeit a bit later than Paul Hursts agent;but the same day.By waiting this long Marcus was taking a risk of somebody making an illegal approach.

All we wait for now is the announcement that he is coming

Shrews Chief Executive "Disappointed" By Town's "Illegal Approach" for Hurst
at 19:49:22

I said previously that I thought Marcus had conducted this situation well,and from what I have read above from Caldwell;he basically has.

Just sour grapes from the Chairman,who is naturally miffed at losing both promotion to the Championship,and his Manager

Town Granted Permission to Speak to Hurst
at 09:39:18

Think Marcus Evans should take some credit for this.He has conducted himself in the correct manner,unlike some,and looks like he could end up with the man he wanted,bearing in mind the dateline he set in his address on club website.

Reading Paul Hursts CV above seems certainly better than any of the other possibles to me and I was also impressed with his post match interview,following defeat,and the way he conducted himself towards the press and fans,just like Bryan Klug,unlike Mr McCarthy.

Now I hope we can all unite on this site in support of Ipswich Town,and stop the personal petty sniping.

Hurst Tight-Lipped on Future After Play-Off Defeat
at 16:11:20

Yes Bob it's me again !!!

Only saw the highlights as were away.

Bob saw full game and thought that Rotherham were the better team,and Josh did ok.

Must say that from highlights not overly impressed with the Shrews,apart from their build up to the goal;and their Managers interview afterwards.He showed more respect for the opposition,and the Press than we have been accustomed to from our previous manager.

Have wanted Frank Lampard for some time now;but looks as though he could be going to Derby,which is a pity.

Said all along that we just have to trust Marcus with this,strange that Steijn who was the fans choice at the start nevers seems to be mentioned now;and doesn't appear to have been interviewed.

Should know by next week,and if Mr Evans is that keen should travel to Dubai to interview the prospective manager,whilst he is on holiday

Sorry folks of course he plays for Rotherham,and is their player of the season I believe.

Hope Josh will get more time here next season than he did under Mick

Knudsen in 27-Man Denmark Squad for Training Camp
at 15:40:09

I am naturally pleased for Jonas to make the first cut.

He seems a very pleasant bloke when interviewed,and although I would prefer him in the centre rather than wing back;as Swn98 he always gives 100 %.

He must be fairly good otherwise he would not have been selected for his country.

Hurst's Shrewsbury Face Emmanuel's Rotherham in League One Play-Off Final
at 14:43:49

Not long to wait now folks hopefully,as pre season only month away !

Hurst is entitled to a holiday for goodness sake,even if he hadn't done so well with Shrewsbury !

Still a lot of names mentioned above except Steijn.

If we don't secure Mr Hurst's signature,then there are plenty more to choose from.

However,I wouldn't want any of Sherwood Coleman,Warburton,McGreal,Kuqi or Pardew,and out of Lamps and Parker would prefer the former.Think a lot of fans agree with me.
Its a gamble to a certain extent whoever we get.It's just like unlike Hurst,most of the others have failed somewhere,apart from John McGreal who has kept Col U comfortably in League 2;but has rarely looked like gettiing them out of that division,and former players Parker and Lampard.who are just starting out.

Sunderland Confirm Ross Appointment
at 19:56:50

After reading what Grumpy had said about Ross and 'Pool',then I am not too bothered.
Could turn out to be a one season wonder whereas Hurst far better CV.

Still wouldn't mind Steijn or Lamps either.

Should know next week.

Trio Continue Recoveries in Qatar
at 17:41:59

Didn't know about this until now,bet it isn't cheap either;so credit to Marcus,who has to foot the bill for all Towns expenditure.Mind you us shareholders and season ticket holders try and do our bit..

Let us hope that we see these three plus Bish back for pre-season,but wouldn't put my mortgage on it (Oh I don't have one !)?

Pity about Frank Lampard going to Derby,who are currently a bigger club than us.Thought we might have been in with a chance,what with Uncle Harry,and being down south(ish);especially as he reportedly had two interviews.

Expect they were able to dangle a bigger money bag in front of him than Marcus was prepared to ?

Looks like the delay is causing several possibles to fall out of the running for various reasons.This is not surprising due to the prevarification.Lets hope we still land somebody decent.

Don't forget Sir Bobby was third choice,and Sir Alf came straight from playing at Tottenham.The Cobbolds could certainly pick em !!!
