Looks absolutely knackered there, got a funny feeling he might keep Ipswich up, Lambert is a boring but reasonable manager and if they can keep it tight and pinch a goal, they might pull off the miracle

I'm pleased for him, he deserves to still be playing at a decent level.

Remember when fans threatened to never watch us again because we didn’t offer him another contract.

I think the club was right on this one

It was the way in which he was supposedly told that he wasn't going to be offered another contract (via email) that rightly irked people.

Masuaku was our only defender on the bench yesterday. It's unfortunate that so many are injured at once but we may yet find ourselves in a situation where we wish we did still have Ginger Pele on our books.

He was immense for the tractor boys on Saturday, perfect game for him, Rotherham were throwing everything at them in the air, he won pretty much everything apparently. Fans love him already, and why wouldn't they :D

Hope he stays fit for him & Ipswich.

I rate Ginge for his Trojan work ethic. I hope it goes well for him and he comes back sometime in a coaching role.

Fulham could have done worse than take him on a short term deal for this season.

Yeah, I don't think that's right, pezza. I heard on the radio it was some sort of season-long record for Ipswich clearances made in a game. The highlights I saw just had him heading everything and anything. He did make one cock-up, in traditional style, which almost cost a goal, and no doubt his movement was rusty, as you say, but apparently it was a pretty heroic performance all things considered.

You go with highlights, I will go with what TWO ST holders said that were AT THE game, you bell.

My cousin, also a STH at Portman road, said he was impressive and is what they need on the weekend

I think you’ll find that’s quite incorrect.

13 aerial duels won, 18 clearances etc etc....
