I agree, Boz. The deal will certainly set him up for life. It could work out well and Ipswich go straight back up with James as their leading scorer. On the other hand, we remember what happened to Andy Cook. If he can get off to a good start and score early on, he'll endear himself to the fans. If not, they may see him as a hardworking but ineffective striker. My prediction is that his skill and confidence will see him through. As for his team, I am not convinced they will bounce back up. Paul Lambert has a massive job on his hands turning things around. He is very experienced, but has not had much success of late.Can’t blame him going, though still unsure it was the best move for James from a footballing rather than financial perspective. We’ll see. just hope that our games against Ipswich aren’t at significant moments in the season.
A great post, MH. It's got me thinking.Endearing himself to the club already I’ve noticed on twitter because mutual TRFC followers have encouraged it into my newsfeed. If I had the choice of losing MM (manager), MM (CB) or the Lord I’d have opted to retain the first two & we have. Always said building from the back is the key!
