Jewell Admits Loans Not Ideal

After being in charge for more than 20 months Paul Jewell is still relying on loanees to pull them out of the mire.

After squandering millions on over-paid veterans enjoying a cushy retirment plan at Ipswihc's expense, jewell vowed he would bring in hungry youngsters, but with Town wallowing near the bottom of the league has turned to a short-term fix.

Bringing in Richie Wellens, DJ Campbell and Bilel Mohsni, has taken the number of loanees at Portman Road to seven.

Jewell told the clubwebsite: "Bringing in loans is not ideal, I know that but it`s the situation we find ourselves in.

"We`re not flush with millions of pounds to just go out and spend on whoever we want.

"We keep talking about this being a long term project, though I know that doesn`t wash with a lot people and I understand that.

'We`d like to go with younger, hungry players but until we can get a foothold in this division and move forward to a stronger position, we have to go with experience.'

Teflon Jewell has been given more time to turn things round by the equally clueless owner Marcus Evans.
