The busiest man at the club......

Post by Bluemike » Tue May 04, 2021 10:17 am

Let's hope this is the end of our ridiculous injury situation.
💼 Town have appointed Andy Rolls as director of performance.

Andy, who arrives at Portman Road with a wealth of Premier League experience, will oversee all the medical, strength and conditioning and sports science aspects at the Club.

FINALLY.... a proper evidenced based practice member of staff is employed. Hopefully this will go a long way to ending the ridiculous injury history at this Club.

Infrastructure , infrastructure...infrastructure …. :D

I think the busiest man is the bloke retrieving balls from allotments at shooting practice.

He’ll be delighted to see the back of Edwards and Harrop.

Love the headline...”Club Line Up Swoop For Ipswich Town Player.” Shouldn’t it read, “Club Line Up Shovel For Ipswich Town Player.”? :lol:

Add an apostrophe “s” and Norwood will be over the moon.

Andy’s Rolls

Well he’s here now - along with Ashton. Not going anywhere soon, so we’ll have to wait and see.

I can guarantee you - both him and Ashton will get criticised if our recruitment and fitness doesn’t improve over time. With or without heads up from BC fans. We’ve set the bar very low on recruitment and fitness over a long period so it shouldn’t take too much to improve. And we know Ashton is very unpopular with most people BC fans. What do you want us to do - demonstrate and call for his head when he’s not even started work here?

Anyway, you must be happy with Ashton and Rolls leaving - so enjoy that and best of luck next season. We’ve got fans who carry grudges over with unpopular ex-managers, ex-players, etc and want to see them crash and burn further - so not surprised by your post. Bit early though.... come back in a few months when we’ve signed a bunch of donkeys and our treatment tables are full.
Thanks for the heads up. But we’re in a period of change where we’ll be very optimistic for the next few months. At least give us a couple of months where our heads are in the clouds. :)

Nigel Pearson also recently mentioned how he thought BC players were not fit enough, which kind of makes sense with the number of injuries under Rolls. :shock:

Good luck next season.
