I see Leeds linked with Skipp. Think he would fit in well at Town, wouldn’t cost silly money, known to McKenna and better than other links I’ve seen like O’Brien. If available I hope we are involved

Rumour Mill - Miguel Almiron
at 04:55 26 May 2024

Miguel Almiron - Apparently this was mentioned by Ben Jacobs on The Fully Loaded Transfer Show podcast. Not sure of his creditability. Stemming from that appearance it seems the following two reports have surfaced. Personally not sure if we would be spending 20 million on a player this summer, really decent player though.

McKenna Contract
at 22:51 22 May 2024

Yes another thread.

Does anyone actually know the terms in McKenna's contract (i doubt this)?

The quoted figures for compensation, they aren't necessarily a release fee, or has it been confirmed it is? What I mean is, it might not be a pay xx and automatic release - it might be that is the fee if we agree for him to go and he goes

My point, Ashton has said don't believe the rumours and is cutting a calm figure. You would think if we knew McKenna was going, other managers would have been sounded out, and contact with other clubs would be made - although we have our code of silence at the club, other clubs wouldn't stick to this, and they in turn would need to make their own plans for replacements at their ends - basically information would leak somewhere - other than Rob Edwards lazy link there has been nothing.

So, maybe teams are interested in McKenna, but if Ashton/Board say they aren't entertaining any kinds of offers this summer for McKenna, then he doesn't go anywhere, regardless of who offers. Unless of course there are certain clauses in the contract which we don't know about.

It might be there is a United clause, and as I have seen mentioned all this Brighton and Chelsea talk is just agent playing to put McKenna in the frame for the United role should it be available at the weekend.

Ashton hasn't said he isn't leaving, but he has said don't believe any rumours you hear - which suggests this has all been expected.

Who knows what wll happen, but we are Ipswich Town and even if he does go it won't be the merry go round scrap pile where we are looking this time. If the rumours of us offering McKenna a contract to be 6th highest paid manager in premiership, the world would really be our oyster for a replacement.

Doesn't Brett Johnson have some sort of link to FC Helsingor? A left field suggestion and have to admit I dont really know anything about style of play ect but having taken over Helsingor in 2019 he won the Danish second division and is now sitting top of the first division - perhaps a consideration?
