In an interview in the local paper a few weeks ago Paul Cook really laid into the Ipswich squad - no names mentioned, but it made Hill's comments about our squad look almost complimentary in comparison.If Nors was out of a favour it could be a maybe but from menory towards the end of the season he featured quite a bit under Paul cook and got a few goals so fairly sure they’ll want him to stay
But Norwood has not seemed happy ever since moving to Ipswich, and played his best football under Mellon.The difference between Vaughan and Norwood is that Vaughan wanted to move closer to home.
They were a very successful pair and it was no surprise that Jacko got the job when Micky left. However, I don't think it would be a good idea to sack Dawes and reinstate Jacko. It's a risk any assistant takes when he accepts the manager's job. Jacko must have known this. So would Dawesy, which might have made him reluctant to take the top job until he had a little more experience as assistant.Interesting listening to Mitch Duggan on a trip to the moon about how much of the coaching and training ground work Jacko used to do instead of Micky, and what a great duo the two of them were. I always thought that was the case and you do wonder if Micky was tempted to bring Jacko back, despite knowing Dawes and Parky well. Not sure Jacko has a permanent job these days.
