The Jewell in Ipswich's Crown?

The Jewell in Ipswich's Crown?

Former Wigan and Derby County boss, Paul Jewell has been named as the new manager of Ipswich following the demise last week of Roy Keane.

Ipswich owner Marcus Evans told the club's website:

'I wanted to appoint a manager with several years of experience behind them who also had a history of promotion and then staying up'

Many Clarets fans may be wondering if we should be doing the same after yet another possible target has been mopped up.

I don't think anybody imagined Paul Jewell would have been on our short-list but there is no doubting his pedigree in getting a club promoted and keeping them up.

Ipswich certainly seem to have moved quickly too appointing a new manager just 3 days after sacking one! Is there another lesson to be learned there?

What's betting Burnley will be the last to be fixed up with probably their sixth choice on their list if we are lucky?

Plenty of managers available out there - a fair few who some Town fans would have rather seen us appoint today. Here's wishing you best of luck in finding someone suitable!

No rush as frustration as it is though! ... really would like some comprehensive news from the board if only to keep us up to date we are suffering mushroom syndrome at the moment, (kept in the dark) fact is five excellent candidates have not gone elsewhere Big Sam, Chris Houghton, Eddie Howe, Malky Mckay and Innes are all available, I didn't want lambert clark or Jewell anyway, brown could have been an option but lets just trust , two guys who are self made, might know more that we think, they may well be gifted in the art of negotiation, fact is we just don't know what lays behind the scenes .... no doubt we will know within the next 10 days

A brave move by Ipswich. I'm pretty sure there are several posters on here who'd have been figuratively foaming at the mouth if we'd have appointed Jewell 3 days after letting Laws go. Am I right in remembering that Jewell was brought in to stop Derby's PL rot, failed miserably... and the rot continued the next season? Has he managed since? Of course, as with stocks and shares, prior performance should not be taken by investors to guaranteee future results. Anyone know if a second tier club has ever previously sacked their manager for getting them into the Carling semis?

Personally I didn't want Howe on the Turf. He's done brilliantly at Dean Court. But he's very, very young, with very limited experience, and he won't have anybody in mind as to who he'd bring in to a club at our level in that he'll have been window shopping in the bargain basement, given Bournemouth's ongoing skint state. They were under a transfer embargo for a long time, up till just a few months ago, so Howe has even less experience in the transfer market than he has in management generally. I can see that Charlton would be a more sensible move for both him and Charlton. But Cherry fans will be hopping to lose him to a club alongside them in a promotion tussle. Howe may be one to watch; or the question in 3 years time may be 'Eddie Who?'. Let someone else take that risk, would be my view.

Still think the final choice will be a surprise, just hope it's a pleasant one, and not chosen by accountants.

How about appointing Big Sam. Malky MacKay, Steve Clarke, Phil Brown, Derek McInness, Eddie Howe 3 days after sacking Laws? The point is not Jewell,the point is going for the man you want and quickly. Some it seems have already done the groundwork and been prepared to pounce. We as usual seem laboured and if we are not careful will get second -best or even sixth-best at this rate

Couch, we have a differing opinion on Eddie Howe but that's cool the games about opinions, I share some of your concerns, but I once worked with a 28 year old guy who absolutely ran rings around senior managers who had alleged "years" of experience! some times these things pay off, its funny cos there are at least 4 clubs that want him, and I haven't seeing the queue quite as big for any of the other names listed so he's doing something right, I have stated I think we need an experienced candidate but in the absence of them..... and lets be honest, there is a real absence of them! then I would have no issues with EH, anyway that isn't going to happen so who's next up LOL

Our board didn't like Jewell anyway, they fell out with him when Coyle was appointed. He was a bit dismissive of the job at Burnley. I think Charlton would be a good move for Howe, I think its too big a step up to us. Lets have some patience. It always takes longer to get managers already in jobs, which we appear to be going for.
