    Your third point SP is where i hope we massively differ from Chelski and where i ultimately hope they will fall on their faces.

    And sorry, point four - of course i actually meant 'feck him!' :ROFLMAO:

    From Ipswich forum :

    Fantastic vision from drury to put the ball through to Luongo who put an even better ball across the Watford 6 yard area. Nosworthy pulled back from risking an own goal and Chops puts it in the net.

    http://www.twtd.co.uk/forum/226326/great-goal/#1

    We were excellent in the 1st half without making too many clear chances. We started a bit slowly in the 2nd half & the introduction of big lump Iwelumo gave us a few problems. I felt we were hanging on a bit in the 2nd half but decent goal on the break. Luongo was our MOTM

    Think Massimo Luongo is making a good impression at Ipswich , bodes well for the future.

    Just talked to my Brother who is a Ipswich fan and was at the game tonight, He is well impressed with the Lad and told me he has a good all round game and that he has made a better impact than Livermore and Townsend made when they was there on loan.

    I know you must be bored of hearing it by now, but Luongo is another level. He'll be huge for us this year!! #COYB #itfc #thfc

    Chambers was outstanding at the back, looks a great signing. As does luongo, shame he's not permanent.

    Three well deserved points this evening. Massimo Luongo was excellent throughout. #itfc

    PLAYER REACTION: We wanted the win more than Watford – Massimo Luongo http://tinyurl.com/9hjefn8

    Club and fans seem to really like him - he's 19 and will only be 20 in a month, so its a very good performance from such a young player in a top Championship club

    Impressive start. Seems to have a good attitude, to go into the championship for his first stint of pro football and not be daunted, good sign.

    I just asked about Mass to my brother, who is a) a ST holder at Ipswich and b) a slow fucker (so the late reply); he said after the Watford win;

    'Has played every game since he came in during preseason - he's quality! Defensive mid - breaks up play and good on the ball too. Hit the post on Tuesday.' (at Watford)

    Not the best of days today it seems. Lost 6-0 @ Blackpool and he was taking off after 65mins when it was 5-0.

    Just saw the goal on SSN. Very nice indeed. Side-footed from quite far out into the bottom right.

    Whenever I've seen him at youth level, he makes football look easy. So it's great that he's now continuing his development at Championship level, playing against some tough, experienced, pros.

    There's an ancient Australian thread on him around the time he came to Europe for trials with several clubs, including Ajax (if I remember correctly). Here's a typical comment:

    I played against Masssimo last year at school. He played for Waverley and single handedly won them the title last year. He scored a freak goal in the final against us. Was playing U20's Premier League when he was 16.

    Yeah, excellent controlled finish from outside the box. The lad has technique alright.

    Anyone heard what the Ipswich fans are saying? Any good message boards to look at? Might have a check...

    TWTD is the main forum but it's very fast moving so tricky to find specific stuff.

    Apparently he came on in the second half and made a difference but they still lost.

    Luongo still usually in starting 11 - but Ipswich (and maybe Luongo) not having best of luck. Ipswich lost 2-1 at home to Charlton

    BBC :
    Following a first half of rare chances, it did not take long for a goal to come in the second period when Jackson put Charlton ahead after a cross from the left.
    Fuller compounded Ipswich's misery when he scored after Luongo had lost possession and, despite Scotland's goal, Ipswich could not find a way back.


    Luongo then came on for second half away draw against Barnsley

    Ipswich now have 6 domestic loanees (and 2 non domestic loanees) on their books after signing Nigel Reo-Coker on loan - but can only name a maximum of 5 domestic loanees in their squad. With a number of options in centra midfield including the experienced Reo-Coker, Luongo is not in the Ipswich squad against Hull. Unless he rapidly regains his squad place, imo Spurs will do well to recall him (and maybe even include him in some Cup squads - not eligible for Europa League - whilst Parker is out )

    http://www.twtd.co.uk/ipswich-town-news/21672/jewell-faces-selection-dilemmas-for-hull-

    Luongo's fans ratings in each match at Ipswich (starts in bold) - 3 league starts and 3 cup starts and a further 7 sub appearances :

    http://www.twtd.co.uk/ipswich-town-squad/4063/massimo-luongo

    He's made appearances in pretty much all the games he has been at Ipswich for and imo this demonstrates that he can 'hack' it at Championship level. An alternative to returning to Spurs could be another Championship loan (but not sure when he could be re-signed). Ipswich are bringing in experienced loanees all over the pitch (gk, forwars, midfield) showing that its the team which is not performing - its not a problem with Luongo who the fans seem tio rate.
