    Slightly weird move for RE if he goes there unless he feels we are cooked goose and his reputation is going to be hit by us being in Championship bottom 6 by Xmas. I would have thought a good 6 months with us could open up a better job than Ipswich whereas surely he risks 2 successive relegations if he goes to them or being sacked in a few months when they panic. I have no illusions that he will go if he gets a good offer but surely Ipswich job is just another few months of struggle for him

      There's no suggestion in any of the reports that RE wants to leave. Ipswich are entitled to make an approach,LTFC and RE are entitled to tell them to feck off.

        I believe it would be a monumentally bad decision on a par when Jones left to go to Southampton.

              If Ipswich need a new boss to keep them in the Prem, I'm not sure why they'd pick one that's failed to do that with his present club.

                    I was told - by a senior club official - that Potter had been identified as an excellent up and coming young manager (and potential recruit) as far back as 2014.

                    Fact dat. (point being there’s almost certainly a shortlist of replacements if/when RE moves on)

                      As a sort of established top half PL side I think they will be looking for someone who has top flight managerial experience, either here or more realistically overseas.

                    Rob can count himself extremely fortunate that he’s working for Luton Town! With his record in the Premiership todate most other clubs would be considering his future. Why on earth would Ipswich be considering him beggars belief. He’s still got a job to do here first and prove that he’s got what it takes to get us back to the Prem before moving to another club !

                        As you say, it will be a rebuild for us next year with no guarantee of success. Seems like a no-brainer if he is offered the Ipswich job.

                        Disappointing, but that’s the life of a Luton supporter when the bigger teams come calling!

                          Small club mentality. We shouldn’t just shrug and accept it, we should be looking to keep him, unless we get a ridiculously good offer.

                          We are in the best position (financially) we have ever been in; a huge difference from the past, where there’s an acceptance that as soon as someone comes calling, we’ll lose our best assets.

                          Doesn’t need to be that way now.

                            For a club of our size, 2020 have played a blinder to keep us financially resilient. Difficult to keep hold of staff/players though who want to test themselves at a higher level.

                            At least we're not selling to Championship clubs. Or I bloody hope not!

                              of course they are. History/fan base/financial strength etc.

                              But these arguments about 'bigger clubs' are pointless. What matters is now.

                                History, about on a par. Fan base, only our ground holding us back, 42k to Wembley.
                                If they have a money man then good luck when he decides to leave.

                                  History on a par?

                                  "Ipswich won the league title in 1961–62, their first season in the top flight, and finished runners-up in 1980–81 and 1981–82. They finished in the top six in the First Division for ten years, and won the FA Cup in 1978 and UEFA Cup in 1981. They are the only British side never to have lost at home in European competition, having defeated teams such as Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Lazio and Barcelona."

                                  They had bigger crowds in League One than we will get in Power Court.

                                    They are a bigger medium-sized club than we are

                                    On your points, though, 1) their big achievements were over 40 years ago now. They've been, largely, an irrelevance for 25+ years until this season

                                    When they were shit in L1 and the Championship their gates were low. If we were in PC in L1, we would have approached 18-20k especially towards the end of that L1 season. So the poster who said KR has held us back is also correct

                                    But, as you say, the bigger clubs debate is pointless. Something that dull Sunderland fans obsess about

                                      They don't appear on this list. Although, admittedly, it doesn't feel we are smaller than Wigan or bigger than Sunderland.

                                  I've come to the conclusion that in a lot of cases with players and managers, these names wouldn't be mentioned if there wasn't some level of interest on both sides. I'd be disappointed though if he joined Ipswich; a more established side, not so.

                                  I guess if it does happen, we need to take them for every penny possible. I can't imagine putting in a small (in PL) terms release clause like with Jones.

                                  With Ross Barkley for example, it feels like a few times this year someone has been briefing to the media on his behalf, hence why the United story kept popping up. I wouldn't say it's exclusively the agents doing this unprompted.

                                  It's a short career - I certainly can't blame them for it. The PL is a monster that everyone wants to be part of.

                                          I hate January and I hate the summer, club football-wise. Can't wait for the Euros to start because, for a short while, clickbait sites and Twitter 'journalists' might be distracted from the relentless boring transfer speculation

                                          I get this is a football message board but, fucking hell, 2 days since the season's finale and we've had non-stop speculation about Barkley, Adebayo, now Edwards. Mengi speculation will be added to the mix at some point this week. And Kaminski next week.

                                          It's relentless and, for me, a bit boring. But I get others enjoy this sort of thing. I will just try to ignore it

                                          I've just seen so many players and managers come and go down the years it really is water off a duck's back when a player or manager leaves.

                                          If Edwards or anyone else goes, I'll be a bit disappointed but not that bothered. The last player I was gutted to see go was Tim Breacker but I was still a kid at the time. Apart from Pleat in 1986 I don't think I've ever been gutted about a manager going. The necessity to part ways with Still was different circumstances. That change had to be made even though I was gutted - not because he had to leave but because it didn't work out for him longer term

                                              Not for me. Initial disappointment - genuine surprise the first time Jones left - but it just doesn't bother me anymore. As long as players and managers try their best while they are with us, that'll do for me

                                              You, me and the rest of the fanbase are the only constant. That's why growing the fanbase with PC is so important
