So as one of the world’s most unsuccessful player turned manager reigns lumbers dragging poor old Ipswich Town ever onwards to failure…
Word is emerging from our man at the bar in Mannings this afternoon is that Connor Wickham is very close to becoming a Tottenham player.
It’s no secret that the talented and well developed Wickham has been scouted relentlessy by Tottenham. But what has emerged is that Liverpool apparently sought to hijack the long mooted N17 move with a saucy £10M bid. If this was pre Roy or after, we do not know, my suspicion is …before.
But sources close to barmaid’s apron tell the Tavern that the boy didn’t fancy a move to Anfield.
It wasn’t the money.
