And so the cull begins. ....

Post by Bluemike » Thu Apr 08, 2021 2:16 pm

TWTD understands the Blues have parted company with young pros Harry Wright, Adam Przybek, Kai Brown and Zak Brown. All four had contracts which are up at the end of the season.

Wales U21 international keeper Adam Przybek (above), 21, moves on having made one first-team appearance, in the Leasing.com Trophy tie at Peterborough last season in which he saw Town to a penalty shoot-out victory. The former West Brom youngster is currently on loan at Chesterfield.

Fellow keeper Wright, 22, the son of Town legend Richard, departs without having made a senior appearance for the Blues.

Felixstowe-based striker Zak Brown, the brother of MK Dons frontman Charlie, who left Town for Chelsea as a scholar, made his only senior appearance in the Papa John’s Trophy game at Crawley as a substitute.

Forward Kai Brown, 19, who joined the Blues from Grays Athletic in the summer of 2018, moves on having been unable to break into the first team.

We understand a number of other young players whose terms are up this summer have also been told they will not be offered new deals.

Here we go, feel a tad for Przybek as liked what I saw of him, but hey ho, we aspire to better now I hope.

I have wondered about the future of the Academy after reading about the 'Brentford Way' and now after the take over. Has anyone read anything about that?

That's a surprise to me that they have let Przybek go when the keepers we use are both very poor, IMO a new keeper is essential.

Yes, they want to invest fairly heavily in the Academy going forward

And do you think the academy can play a big role in Ipswich’s future success as well?

BJ: For certain. It’s going to be an incredible area of focus for us. I think one of the many benefits relative to the broader catchment area that it gets to be a part of, so much talent there.

One of many things we were interested in was the potential of the academy, so that will be a big focus of ours and gain from my perspective I can’t wait to see how we can collaborate on both sides of the pond with talent coming here and vice versa.

Cheers for that BM! It sounds like we may recruit a few young Americans. I'd love to see that...American players are much better than they used to be...and compared to the shower of sh*t we have at the moment, they can't be worse.

Those players who left aren’t a big surprise.

I do wonder if we’re going to strip down not just our senior squad, but our academy youngsters. It could be we’ve got too many and it’s not just the senior players blocking the youngsters. It could be they’re youngsters blocking each other.

Not sure about the work permit side, but maybe Phoenix could be a place to send our youngsters on loan.
