Ipswich midfielder Sam Morsy has made his go for the season clear following his transfer from Middlesbrough …

What’s the talk?

Ipswich’s final summer season signing, Sam Morsy, has actually detailed his aspirations for the 2021/22 project following his move from Championship side Middlesbrough.

The midfielder, who dealt with Town manager Paul Cook at Wigan, has stated that the immediate go for him at Portman Road is a promotion from League One.

He informed Ipswich IFollow, by means of TWTD:

“The immediate objective is to get promoted which’s what I’ve pertained to the club to do.

“You can’t dress it up, the goal is promotion given the size of this club, the players and the manager.

“I know the owners wish to purchase the squad and want us to be a force in the Championship.

“They’ve backed the manager and the manager has actually been promoted from this league before so it’s amazing.

“There’s some great players here. With Kyle Edwards, my buddy, Lee Peltier [Middlesbrough right-back] has actually had nothing but good things to say about him and about how good he is.”

Will Ipswich get automatic promo?

Yes Vote No Vote Fans will be buzzing Ipswich fans will undoubtedly be buzzing after reading these remarks from Morsy. The midfielder has not joined the club to be content with challenging for a top-half finish or just making the play-offs, he wishes to get promoted out of this department and seems like Cook has put together a team efficient in doing simply that.

These are the type of positive quotes that Ipswich fans will be desperate for provided the club’s awful start to the project. The Tractor Boys are currently beinged in the relegation zone after getting three points from their opening five League One matches, drawing three and losing 2.

Fans will be wishing to cling on to any positives they can to give them hope for the remainder of the season and these comments from Morsy provide that.

It would be strange for a player of his experience to fall into the 3rd tier if he did not genuinely think that Ipswich could get promoted, as he had the possibility of playing Championship football with Middlesbrough, which implies that advocates can think what he is stating.

Therefore, fans will be buzzing with Morsy’s quotes as they have a great reason to trust his judgement. He currently began three second-tier video games for Boro this term, which shows what he has actually given up to come to Portman Road. Would he do that if he did not really believe that this Ipswich squad can win promo? It seems not likely on paper.

It is now down to Morsy, Cook and the rest of the players and staff to realise their ambitions and start getting wins on the board to erase their bad start to the season. In the meantime, though, fans will be happy with the clear goal set by Morsy.
