McKenzie would leave some fond memories
There's clearly more going on than meets the eye with the Leon McKenzie situation.Some players leave because of greed, some because of ambition and some because of personality clashes.
There's clearly more going on than meets the eye with the Leon McKenzie situation.
Some players leave because of greed, some because of ambition and some because of personality clashes.
I know nothing more about the McKenzie situation than what I have read in the press, but it seems clear to me that there are other issues at play here.
He is a player who has always given his all, and perhaps if a few other players had shown his hunger last season, we'd have made a better fist of things.
(He also put us top of the league at Portman Road, and for that we'll always be grateful.)
It would be good if he does stay - and I still maintain that a 4-4-2 formation with McKenzie and Robert Earnshaw up front would work in this league - but if he does go following his Carling Cup goal then I'm sure we will all wish him well.

Work commitments meant I didn't go to Torquay, but hats off to the 670 or so City fans that did go down to south Devon.
Some of them would have been based in the South-West, but the majority of the travelling supporters showed dedication that most other clubs would die for.
I think it was Neil Adams on Radio Norfolk who said there would be Premiership clubs in later rounds who won't get anywhere near as many fans following them on much shorter trips.
Leaving aside Nigel Worthington's dig at the supporters after the final game of last season, one thing the powers-that-be at Carrow Road have always done is publicly recognise the tremendous support the team gets, both home and away.
How disappointing it was, then, to receive reports that the players seemed to show little appreciation of the efforts the fans had gone to on Wednesday night.
I'm told they did turn and clap the supporters, but it was a night, surely, when every single member of the playing and coaching staff should have gone right down to the away end and shown just how much the support had meant to them.
I'm sure the players meant nothing by it and they had had a long day, but not as long a day as many of the supporters had had.
