FULHAM could be about to hand Jay Emmanuel-Thomas a chance to return to the Premier League.

One national newspaper has claimed Fulham boss Martin Jol is considering a move for Ipswich Town’s mercurial talent who has enjoyed a largely fantastic second half of the season.

While Paul Jewell would be reluctant to lose someone could star in the Championship next season, every Ipswich player probably has his price.

Emmanuel-Thomas came off the bench on Tuesday night to score his seventh of the season – and go tantalisingly close to another after cannoning a free-kick against the crossbar.

Speaking of the man he signed from Arsenal last summer, Jewell said: ““We have got to work on his fitness in the summer because he’s dropping off at the end of the games.

“But it’s his first full season of football and he’ll be a better player for it next year. He’s going to be a player, there is a lot more to come from him.”

Ipswich Town’s managing director last night criticised the “unwarranted personal abuse” suffered by manager Mick McCarthy and players from fans and the media this season.

Ipswich Town finance director Mark Andrews insists owner Marcus Evans remains ‘in it for the long haul’ after the latest set of accounts were revealed at tonight’s PLC AGM, adding there could well be money for transfers in January.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy and skipper Luke Chambers have led tributes to “much-loved” club stalwart Dick Parker after he died at the weekend.

Ipswich Town lost 2-0 at Middlesbrough on Saturday to slip to ninth in the Championship table.

From the counter kings at Derby, to the counter chumps at Middlesbrough. With five of the next seven games at home, Ipswich Town need to take their medicine and quickly refocus on maintaining the fun factor at Portman Road.

No dramas as such with Town’s defeat at Middlesbrough, but there’s a degree of frustration that we have seen a couple of times in three weeks now, writes Karl Fuller.

Play to your strengths. It’s a well-worn piece of wisdom which applies in most walks of life, and certainly includes sport, writes North Stander Terry Hunt.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes his team let Middlesbrough off the hook in this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat at the Riverside Stadium.
