Sport Paul Cook announces double Ipswich Town boost ahead of Doncaster clash
Sam Morsy verdict emerges from within Ipswich Town camp
Ipswich Town left-back Hayden Coulson believes Sam Morsy’s big challenges, commitment and high intensity will lead the Egyptian international to become a fan favourite at Portman Road, speaking to the East Anglian Daily Times. Morsy, 30, was the Tractor Boys’ 19th and final signing of the summer transfer window, a surprising move considering he was […]Morsy, 30, was the Tractor Boys’ 19th and final signing of the summer transfer window, a surprising move considering he was a regular in the Championship for former side Middlesbrough last season.
Paul Cook could be set to hand Sam Morsy his Ipswich Town debut against Doncaster Rovers tomorrow evening – and Kyle Edwards could also return from injury.
The Tractor Boys have won just one league game so far this season and they needed a blunder from Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell to secure a point at Portman Road on Saturday against the Owls.
Cook has yet to settle on a best 11 from his stacked squad and now his selection headache is set to be increased with the arrival of Morsy.
The summer signing from Middlesbrough has served a three-match ban that he acquired in his final game for the Teessiders and he could walk straight in to Cook’s midfield.
Paul Cook makes claim over Ipswich Town squad ahead of Lincoln City clash
Ipswich Town boss Paul Cook has claimed to Suffolk News that he believes that a collective bond will soon be formed amongst the squad. The Tractor Boys have had a nothing short of disastrous start to their Sky Bet League One campaign and are yet to have won a game so far this term in […]The Tractor Boys have had a nothing short of disastrous start to their Sky Bet League One campaign and are yet to have won a game so far this term in the competition.
That’s not the only boost that the Suffolk side have received as another summer signing in Edwards, who has missed the last three league matches through injury, is also set to return to the squad and Cook is delighted that he is able to bring bodies back into the fold.
“Samy is always champing at the bit,” Cook said on the Egypt international’s availability, per the.
“He’s a really good lad. He’s captained the clubs I’ve been with him at. I know Samy inside out and Samy knows me inside out.
“He’s a competitor, he’s a winner and he’ll want to win desperately for Ipswich Town Football Club. He’s a massive addition to the squad.
Paul Cook discusses turning loan move for Ipswich man into permanent deal
Paul Cook has praised Macauley Bonne’s impact since returning to Ipswich Town and has hinted that a permanent deal for the Zimbabwe international could be a possibility. Bonne played for Ipswich’s academy until the age of 14 before moving on to Norwich and then Colchester United, but made his way back to his hometown club […]Bonne played for Ipswich’s academy until the age of 14 before moving on to Norwich and then Colchester United, but made his way back to his hometown club earlier this season having joined on loan from Queens Park Rangers.
“I think Kyle Edwards will be available too, So we are getting stronger now.”
Morsy now being available could give Ipswich the rocket they need to kick-start their campaign.
The Tractor Boys have definitely been missing an influential figure in the engine room – Rekeem Harper, Tom Carroll and Lee Evans are all talented but none of them are real leaders like Morsy.
Cook definitely needs to figure out his best starting 11 though soon because just one league win so far this season is poor and for a squad with the abilities on paper that he has it’s not acceptable.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them pick up their first home victory of the campaign tomorrow against Rovers and for them to go on a run of good results following that.
Opinion: Ipswich Town should cut their losses on £1 million man as January transfer window looms .
Paul Cook oversaw a mass overhaul of the Ipswich Town squad this summer, with not many players surviving the cull out of the 2020-21 squad. Cook arrived in March of this year to replace Paul Lambert to try and get the Tractor Boys into the play-offs with one last strong push, but just four wins […]Cook arrived in March of this year to replace Paul Lambert to try and get the Tractor Boys into the play-offs with one last strong push, but just four wins out of 16 matches meant that the Suffolk side and their new American owners had to settle for mid-table mediocrity.
