If that is the case, then I think it's safe to say DC doesn't feel he can rely on Lucas any longer - rather than my earlier thoughts it could be we're just looking for a short term reserve goalie. 

Yeah I think the key here will be the length of any agreement. If it’s just a month then obviously don’t think there are any long term implications for Lucas. Any longer and you’ve got to wonder.

Being honest my opinion on Lucas has softened a lot certainly in comparison to what it was of him at half time of the Swindon game. I wouldn’t blame DC though if at the back of his mind he’s thinking can I trust him not to do that in a playoff game for example.

Ipswich fans not overly complementary of him on twitter, however we've got to trust the process.

 

Our first Czech player if he signs?

If you are on about the comments on the tweet from Peter O Rourke there is only 1 fan saying they don’t rate him (at the time of writing)… that may be totally representative of the Ipswich fan base, or might be one of their mouth breathers… we have a few of our own.

Need to break the bank or we're going no where. Where's the ambition? Small little vale. Perhaps if we spent less money on the backroom staff we'd have more money for signings.

Disagree, clubs can achieve success and promotion without breaking the bank. Accrington is a great example, who I hope we shall be playing next year to renew our friendship with the manager.

It was based on that comment on twitter but also the comments on the Ipswich forum. Screenshot_20220126_151905.jpgScreenshot_20220126_151845_com.android.chrome_edit_2347338043256407.jpg

It’s the old classic isn’t it… some fans on their forum are saying they prefer him over Hladky who was the best keeper in our league by a country like for Salford.

If he signs we can but wait and judge.

In the meantime a vid of some of his saves whilst at Gillingham

I would say that the postives are in the minority on the forum from what ive seen...

I really can't imagine hes going to start, as i don't think Stone has done anything wrong. As a cheap bench warmer its probably alright.

Why don’t they pay decent players more, then if anyone complains tell them that the more expensive player has achievements inkeeping with their remuneration. Want more money? Do good football stuff and then ask.

I assume they do pay their better/experienced  players more, just have a limit.

Didn't DC say it was £1.8k in his interview with the national press?

Are we paying the price for the mixed recruitment last summer? The fact we can't get folks like Loft because of our structure puts out red flags and means we have to be spot on with signings or we will go nowhere.

Can’t say I’m jumping at the prospect of another loan signing. 
 

Potentially:

Cass, Harrat, Edmonson, the guy from Aberdeen, striker at Villa and now Holy all on loan. That’s not the way to go, we’ve tried that before and failed miserably 

(if they all sign of course) all very young as well. Not a receipt for success that.

Holy would be good. Hopefully the statue gets built for Lucas regardless.

Disappointed that we were offered Loft and Hemmings (and Politic) but rejected all due to the 'wage structure'. Unfortunately, creative players/goalscorers command a higher fee than the average League 2 player. If we're going to entrap ourselves with the idea that grown men like Tom Pett would blart because Kane Hemmings earns more than them then, we're not going to get a proper forward.

Reassuring about Gibbo. 

Big, big signings these. Monumental. If Flitters pulls it off and we end up in top 7 then great. If he ballses it and we finish mid-table again...

Think it was £1,900 a week was the max anyone was on, according to that interview (seems a bit daft to announce it imo), but lots of incentives.

Whether people want to moralise about it being right or wrong, good strikers in League 2 will set you back more than that. That's just the market now. 

Flitcroft must trust himself to sign players for cheaper who can offer the same output. It's very ballsy. Hemmings would have cost more but a player who regularly gets 15 a season is going to.

Holy will 100% start over both Lucas and Stone if he comes. Absolutely no question about it. He's been a regular League 1 player and will not come cheaply.
