Reading and Bolton Join Town in Eyeing Tunnicliffe
Monday, 10th Jul 2017 11:17
Reading and Bolton are reported to have joined the Blues in showing interest in free agent former Town loanee Ryan Tunnicliffe.
Last month, TWTD revealed that Mick McCarthy is weighing-up whether to bring the 24-year-old, who left Fulham at the end of last season, back to Portman Road.
Now, according to HITC Sport, the Royals and the Trotters are also keen on the one-time Manchester United youngster.
Tunnicliffe previously spent time on loan with the Blues in the first half of the 2013/14 season when with the Red Devils, making 24 starts and five sub appearances without scoring.
The Heywood-born midfielder, who we understand would be keen on a permanent move to the Blues having enjoyed his time at Portman Road, was due to stay with Town for the whole season but was sold to Fulham in the January window.
The former England U16 and U17 international ended last season on loan at Wigan, his second spell with the Latics, having also spent time as a loanee at Peterborough, Barnsley and Blackburn earlier in his career.

Missing Mick by SpiritOfJohn
Just like Jonas Knudsen I find myself pining for the good old days of the Mick McCarthy era. This current wave of optimism sweeping over the club must surely end soon and come crashing down around us. One day, maybe sooner maybe later, you will also feel some nostalgia for those halcyon days under McCarthy. With these thoughts in mind, here is a tribute to the great man and his legacy:
Managerial Musings by monty_radio
With new manager speculation at fever pitch and so many alluring names who may have thrown their hats into some alleged ring, or perhaps been bumped up in the odds due to a flurry of misplaced fivers, it’s time to step back and assess the relevant claims of the hopefuls.
Wanted: An Inexperienced New Manager by JollyJourno
Usually the top attribute any employer looks for in a new recruit to their organisation is experience. Experience of doing a job at the same level, and a track record of success at that level, should surely be a guarantee of similar outcomes at a similar-sized organisation, right?
We ALL Need to Come Together, Right Now, Over Town by IamSpartacus
This in-fighting is painful to see, read and hear. The Mick McCarthy was crap/great/boring/salvationesque claims are all true, and at the same time not. It is not binary.

So, he’s gone and we can all find out what it is we’ve been wishing for.
