Jewell admits Ipswich don’t have a plan

Paul JewellAs a Norwich City supporter, few things give me more pleasure than enjoying seeing that lot from down the road struggling.

So imagine my delight when I saw this quote attributed to Paul Jewell on Sky Sports earlier this week:

“The owner has been here for more than four years now. It was a brand-new project for him and I think sometimes just throwing money at it doesn’t work.

“You have to have a structure and a plan. This year, I have been guilty of not having enough of a plan by the signing of too many experienced players.

“They are important, but getting the blend with youth is vital. I have got the blend wrong this year – and I will take full responsibility for that.

“Life is about learning from mistakes. Marcus was new to the job and I think he thought about throwing money at it.

“All of a sudden players wanted to go to Ipswich, because they were paying serious money.

“It hasn’t worked. I think stability and structure and building is more important. That’s the way we want to go.”

No plan, no future, an ageing (aka ancient) squad and dwindling attendances at Portman Road. All in the week the Canaries sealed their Premier League status for another year.

Does it get any better?
