Chief Executive answers the questions that matter in exclusive interview

Town chief executive Simon Clegg spoke to the Ipswich Player cameras earlier today. 

Simon on...those Harry Reknapp  rumours 

Here’s a snapshot of some of his answers to the questions that matter:

I’m proud of the rich history of the Club but it does come with a level of expectation.  Fans want success but if in five or 10 years time, if we are still talking about the successes of the past then the modern generation of players would have failed.Simon on the glory days of the past...

Marcus is a man who has enjoyed considerable success in his career and he doesn’t walk away from things easily. He doesn’t enjoy failure and he will continue to invest in the Club to ensure we do have success. Simon on the owner’s continuing commitment...

There is a plan and that is to get us promoted at the earliest opportunity. It’s becoming increasingly difficult though because of the number of clubs benefiting from parachute money from the Premier League.
Simon on ‘having a plan’...

We bought Paul Taylor for £1.5m a few weeks back. Danny Higginbotham has come in on loan. We will continue to add to the squad as and when we need to. 
Simon on new additions...

There have been no conversations with other managers about the job here. The story about Harry is laughable really. People have put two and two together and got 27!

I would be naive and shortsighted not to listen to the fans.
