Having watched him play at Reading a few times last season I am very underwhelmed. Yes he will chase everything down and chip in with a couple of goals, but I don't see how he's going to make any impact with us.
I would have preferred Sam Surridge from Bournemouth, but I'm not convinced either are the type of signing we need in the midst of a League 1 relegation battle. Marc McNulty is also at Reading and has been transfer listed, that would have been a good loan signing.
Because there were already about half a dozen posts in that thread discussing it when this thread was started and it's where Ipswichshrews first posted about it. It's not a big deal, personally I just think it's easier to follow the conversation when it's all in one place.

So we go from...
Sam is a young player who works incredibly hard and obviously has ability on top of that as well. He has a great attitude, will have a good character around the training ground and he works hard.
He spent the first-half of the season on-loan with Oxford but it didn’t work out for whatever reason.
Just made me chuckle that.
Anyhow, we know that football is a funny old game, could work out as a masterstroke. Ricketts certainly comes across as though he knows a fair bit about the lad so hopefully he's seen something in him...
Of all the positions we're looking to perhaps address its up top that I find most intriguing. I think it's where we are at our weakest. So be interesting what part he plays, be interesting to know whether that's the last of the ins and outs in that area...
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.

Still time for another signing, this one is the LJL replacement "“Sam is a young player who works incredibly hard and obviously has ability on top of that as well. He has a great attitude, will have a good character around the training ground and he works hard," said the Town chief.
