You put your left leg out

On the departures front, it now appears that Shola Ameobi will be following Peter Ramage into the Championship next season, with Ipswich reportedly interested in paying somewhere in the region of £4 million for his services.

Like Ramage, it’s always slightly sad to see local lads depart, however, it’s equally clear that Shola’s inconsistent performances and the sense of frustration that he had the potential to achieve so much more than he ever managed for us means that his departure is a necessary step to the rebuilding work under Keegan.

On his day he was unplayable. Unfortunately too often he simply didn’t play, and the complete lack of urgency which he portrayed whenever on the field meant he remains a player more prone to induce frustration than adulation.
