Midfielder Tommy Miller has recently made the switch from Ipswich Town to Wednesday on a free transfer – we get the lowdown on our new man from a Tractor Boy.

Just-an-Ipswich-fan is a member on the Vital Ipswich Town forum, and he gave us at Vital Wednesday his views on the former Sunderland man, who signed a two-year deal at S6.

Good Points:

– Never missed a penalty in over 30 attempts.
– When played in the correct position, carries a tremendous goal threat.
– Guaranteed to score against Preston
– Decent from set pieces.

Bad Points:

– Cannot tackle for toffee.
– Never tracks back.
– Disappears after about 65 minutes (except if you get a set piece)
– Sometimes looks a bit lazy.

Summary:

A good signing for you guys, will bring experience and, hopefully, goals. Brian Laws would be foolish to play him anywhere other than in attacking midfield. Jim played him as a defensive midfielder too often – and I swear a ten year old would have coped better.

…So there we have it, looks like our Tommy could be quite a goal threat from the midfield but leaves a lot to be desired in tracking back.

Maybe a player who’s in his twilight of his career and has lost his way a bit – what better manager to sort that out than Brian Laws? Here’s hoping…
