McGoldrick Back With Town
Sunday, 8th Oct 2017 19:02
Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has confirmed that Town striker David McGoldrick has returned to the Blues and won’t be involved in Monday’s crucial final World Cup qualifier against Wales in Cardiff.
McGoldrick, who has won six Irish caps, was subbed in the second half of Town’s 3-1 home defeat to Bristol City eight days ago with a hamstring injury but was given the all-clear to train with the Ireland squad following a scan.
However, despite being fit the 29-year-old was subsequently left out of the matchday squad for Friday’s 2-0 victory over Moldova in Dublin, in which ex-Town frontman Daryl Murphy scored twice, and has now been released from international duty.
Meanwhile, former Blues left-back Aaron Cresswell made his first competitive appearance for England in this evening’s 1-0 victory in Lithuania.
However, Town won’t receive a windfall with all the top-up clauses in the deal which saw the 27-year-old joined West Ham in the summer of 2014 were linked to his league games for the Hammers - now up to 105 starts and three sub appearances - rather than international matches.

The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
