Doyle to Ipswich?

The Daily Mail has reported this morning that Colin Doyle is on the verge of signing on a free transfer to Ipswich Town.

The Irish keeper, who will be 27 in June, has been at Blues for nine years but has only made forty-seven first team appearances and has found his way to the first team barred by a succession of keepers.

Ipswich, who have released their experienced keeper Richard Wright, are on the lookout for a new keeper with Arran Lee-Barrett as their only recognized goalie.

    Tough oe for Doyle but his wife has been his mouthpeice for the past couple of seasons and she has said he wasn’t happy when we brought in Myhill as he thought it would be his time!

    On othher news, reports in HK suggest accounts to be delayed again on Monday till the middle of May. Why are they waiting to see if we make the playoffs or not, f the books are bad they will be bad if we go up or not!

    • almajir says:

      re the accounts – I’ve not seen anything one way or another with regards to delaying them. It’s my hunch that they will be but I do not know for sure.

  • Duncan says:

    What a waste of a home grown player, should have had his chance this season. Let’s hope he shows what we’ll be missing out on by helping us win the playoffs.

  • Matt says:

    Love him or hate him, I can’t help looking at CY and thinking that every time an accounts submission deadline looms and passes unmet he’s just piling more pressure onto himself, kinda ironically like someone at one of his casinos chasing his losses – praying for the promotion to pay off all the debts like a long-shot bet coming in to save the day.

    I don’t think he’s doing anything to aid his argument to be counted as a “fit and proper person” either to the letter of the law or the spirit of it.

  • Macc lad says:

    Good luck to Colin if these reports are true. I think looking at the emergence of Butland, it’s probably the right decision anyway.

  • skareggae72 says:

    With the likely sale of Foster to WBA,the ending of Myhills loan & the sale of Doyle its looking likely we will have 17 year old Jack Butland in goal next season,its a bit of a risk.
    Looking at the reserves we have somebody in goal called A.Trialist,im guessing that is an unnamed trialist player?

    • Andy says:

      No, he’s a youth player called Andy Trialist. We have his brother Ben Trialist too…..

      • skareggae72 says:

        *correction* Butland is 19,his birthday was last month :)

        • Bluenosejohn says:

          Suspect if a decent offer is made for Butland ( cash only of course ) he will be sold. If no goalkeepers once Foster is sold are left and a transfer embargo in force it could make life er, interesting?

  • Bluepenguin76 says:

    Andy Trialist must be pretty decent…I’ve seen him playing all over the place the reserves this season!. I’m not sure letting Doyle go is good business with the embargo in place,doesnt leave us much cover if Myhill and Foster both end up at the baggies.

  • NooBloo says:

    The story is nonsense. Agents release stories like this to the press to give them more bargaining power when they are looking to renew or extend a contract

  • andy says:

    It seems highly likely that Myhill will be part of the deal that takes Foster to West Brom on a permanent deal, and Butland will be pushing for his place next season, so Doyle is certain to go. Lets hope he signs off his Birmingham career in style by helping us win the play-offs.

  • jazzzy786 says:

    Doesn’t the transfer embargo mean we can’t buy or sell anybody. Meaning we can’t sell Foster, resign Doyle or Myhill? Meaning our keepers next year will be Foster and Butland.

    • almajir says:

      I keep saying this – it means we can’t register new players but there is nothing stopping us selling players.

      I repeat, we CANNOT BUY players BUT we CAN SELL players

  • jazzzy786 says:

    So does that mean we can resign Doyle, Townsend, Myhill, Ramage, Huseklepp as they are NOT new players registered to play for us?
