You just beat me to it. Prior to this news I'd have liked to see him get a run out in one of our "dead rubber" games, but not now!

Agents again I expect turned his head he looks promising but 11 goals in that league is around the same as Aaron Drinan and how many of these young players do come good not many.

I think we'll see him signed by a championship club actually.

If i was 19, just had a good season knocking goals in for fun and was at the end of my contract with a mid table league one club who'd shipped me out on loan followed by sticking me in the B team, then id be considering my options as well.

Good luck to him.

He was shipped out to better him and push his career forward, its common practice not a punishment.

If he feels he will get better opportunities to play at a different club, then I don't blame him. I'm sure most if not all of us on here would put our own interests before loyalty to an employer.

If its purely the fact he feels its a better chance to play then yes deffo, its just a bit sad he doesn't back his own ability to make the grade here, I still feel he is being badly advised.

Personally, I'd activate the 1 year clause, and see who come's in for him.(we'd get more in a transfer than a compensation fee)

If no one does, leave him in the U23, and see the contract out. Yes we'd have to pay him, but I just see him as a petulant child thinking he's better than he actually is, And his agents have turned his head saying you can get more money if you move on.

Lets face it Cardiff were interested when MM was in charge, because he knew the lad and knew he'd fit in with his style of play. But I don't see any clubs higher than us banging the door down.

Sort of spewing for Ash that he didn’t get a game. :lol:

If you were his agent Ashfordblue, he’d have had 10 goals by now & ITFC would be in the play-offs. 👍👍

ASHtag: believe!



And hats off to you Ashfordblue for being the UK’s biggest Covid Vaccine Supporter.

:lol: :lol: Well put Marko I'm feeling a bit like the Jags up and down form-wise :cry:
BUT re My comments on the Simmo situation Why the F**K Recall him from his progress games at Swindon when he's doing very well with 11 goals and not give him a chance in the 1st team where we have muppets for strikers that can't hit a cows arse with a banjo, In My estimation forgetting his contract, etc, was a bad move by the Ipswich management, If they weren't going to play him then let him return to Swindon not the bloody under 23's, this has similar connotations to the Jordan Rhodes, Connor Wickham, Jack Marriott, Nick Pope, plus others that have slipped through the net to go and perform better for other clubs and I can see yet another one in Simpson slipping through the net, act on his one-year extension and send him out to Swindon again or F*****G play him, as it stands I think KM and Ashton are one brick short of a stack sence wise, I mean who in their right mind has 4 strikers in the 1st team squad that have proved their completely F*****G useless at scoring and they wont give the lad Simpson a bloody chance to show what he can do. very bad management He could have been the answer we were looking for and just possibly got us into the playoffs.

Ash, the article says he made it clear some time ago that he wanted away so it would have been very bad management to play him.

For all the youngsters who slipped through the net, there's far more youngsters released who never made it or we kept them here too long. Wickham didn't slip through the net as we got good money for him. Simpson is different - it's a contractual/ money issue. He thinks he's worth more money and the club feel differently. Mckenna has seen him in training so he can judge what he might bring to the side. Maybe he doesn't rate him.

Not agreeing that it's just our strikers that are the problem. We don't create enough chances. There's more to work on than just change the strikers.

It does feel a bit messy and it might have been better all-round to let him stay at Swindon - but we're still paying probably a large chunk of his wages whilst at Swindon. Why should he and Swindon have everything their own way? Although he might have scored another 11 goals and increased his price tag. Or he might have bombed in the second half of the season and his value might have decreased. We know that strikers - especially young ones - are inconsistent. Bonne has gone from a 5 million striker to 250k striker in just a few months. We've got a young striker that another club might take a punt on based on a good half a season so we might get a few quid for him.

Activate his year extension, then give him away for free or a small fee with a 50 percent sell on clause this summer.

Who thinks he's worth more than he is; the agent or himself? If the latter, is he on camera saying this anywhere @ Ipswich or Swindon? Or is it speculation?

Maybe he just doesn't like the town of Ipswich in general and wants away?

:lol: I was meaning more on a homesickness level and not the nick of the town or any undesirables. All cities / Towns in that bracket unfortunately these days. :(

EDIT: Just wiki’d: He’s FROM Ipswich. Oh dear. 🤦‍♂️
Ok, agreed. sh*t-hole! :lol:

I just want to know if he’s ever said that in the media. “I’m worth more.”
We need to start asking these questions. There is so much fake news out there that people just seem to go along and believe stuff…… then unfair opinions develop of a person.

My dough would be on the agent being an a$$hole, …., as has been said on here, …. He’s being poorly advised.

I don't think he has publicly come out and said anything like that no.
