Looks like he will be offered a new contract as PL seems happy with him and ME will discuss it with him, (I know Mike your not a fan of his and I respect your judgement ) but I think he is a useful player who has improved and how much would a replacement cost? Maybe in time Kenlock will prove better time will tell, after Creswell and Mings it's a hard position to fill. ⚽

I bet Jonas will turn a new contract down. I don't think he wants to be here anymore, and I'm fine with him leaving tbh.

im not too fussed either way to be honest. My guess is we will offer him something but it wont be anything big. The other side of it is that he probably is a player we could sell if we wanted to so you might argue letting him go on a free seems a bit silly. So we could sign up him and at some point in the next year or so (if we get an adequate replacement or Kenlock gains that place) then we can sell him to someone else.

Up to PL what he wants to do with this one. Maybe Knudsen wants to leave anyway, who knows. But from PL point of view im sure hes conscious he wants to sound like hes on each of the players sides and is being careful not to alienate anyone, Hurst did that to some extent with a few players and PL knows that didn't work out.

Knudsen might look at this and think.... I could be a League 1 player next year..... I’m an international and a free agent in the summer..... which makes him attractive for other clubs. I can’t see ME giving him a decent contract because we might go down.

I think he’ll be gone in January or the summer.

Hope he goes, I don't rate him at all and with an adequate replacement we would not miss him one bit, dreadful Left back, OK Center Back, time and time again he gets caught upfield an ambles back at a snails pace,, his passing is poor, he lumps it more than any other player, as soon as he crosses the half way line he stops and doubles back to make a safe and boring sideways pass or worse still backwards to a fellow defender, his throw in's are a joke which more often that not put us under pressure and to cap it all he actually believes he is good !! Please turn it down if offered a contract.

I'll just go and get my arse to the Waverley Station now. Train to Peterborough. Connecting train to Ipswich. Walk to Portman Road and hold the door open for the useless git.

We’ve had 4 centre backs across the back 4 before.... so 2 LB’s shouldn’t be a problem. :)

Side point. PL has said that he sees Donacien as a CB only. Looks like Spence has a free run at RB. Lucky boy .. a position we’ve never sorted out for years. Don’t think Spence is the answer though. Looks like Donacien is the back up CB which puts Toto down the pecking order.

Disagree with Lambert on this, Donacien looks a very solid LB to me, better than Spence defensively but probably not as effective going forward. TBH I think Toto had some decent games earlier in the season, Nolan is the one that I think is rubbish.

Those 2 players Donacien & Spence are Right Backs surely? Not Left Backs? :?

They’re RB’s. Show Mike some slack :)

Think Lambert will be looking at a RB come Jan.... bit threadbare there. Unless Emanuell comes back into the picture.

Yes they are, I was just referring to the bit where Lambert thinks Donacien is better at CB, thought he'd done well at RB tbh.

Sounds like Lambert wants to give him a contract.

I don’t see Knudsen to be the one to dig us out of a hole. Can’t see him also wanting to stick around in League 1 if we’re relegated.

Offload for some kind of fee and bring in a sound LB. It’s up to Kenlock now to start fighting for a place as well.

Just come across an article in some football site about Knudsen.

See the verdict below.... biggest pile of rubbish wrote about him ...”one of the rare bright sparks” and if they lose Knudsen their relegation “may as well be all but confirmed”.

I don’t think the writer, a certain Jacob Potter, has ever watched him play.

https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/worry ... rs-future/


The Verdict:

This just adds a further blow to an already awful start to the season for Ipswich.

Knudsen has been one of the rare bright sparks this season for Paul Lambert’s side and with his contract expiring in the summer, they are faced with the prospect of losing the defender for a minimal fee.

Ipswich are already in deep trouble this season and if they are to lose Knuden before the summer, then their relegation may as well be all but confirmed.”

Outsiders need to stfu, the possibility of him departing is the first bit of good news in a abyss of doom and gloom. Please just bugger off and take that hopeless goalkeeper with you !!

Think the bloke behind me at the Bristol City game said it all when he said “is it possible that Knudsen is worse than Graham Harbey”.

I will never forget his performance at Newcastle a couple of years ago when McCarthy substituted him at half-time.
His positional sense that day was probably the worst I have ever seen from a defender.

Here’s the thing... and not trying to be a knumbskull... why is he appreciated by all managers?

His distribution is terrible ... he gets out of position so often.... he passes back when unnecessary... he can’t cross ( his floaty ball meant for for a 6 ft 4 “ striker we don’t have).

I thought Kenlock was ok when he deputised. Better going forward at least. He got criticised big time by Mick by being soft on a challenge and then dumped, when Knudsen has done far worse.
