AARON Mclean says he will continue to interact with Ipswich Town fans on Twitter – despite some not taking too well to his description of the town centre upon his arrival.

The 28-year-old – whose Twitter account of @A9Mac has more than 15,000 followers – wrote that Ipswich’s town centre was ‘rubbish’ just days after his arrival on loan from Hull City, adding that it ‘made Hull look like Oxford Street’.

The level-headed striker has laughed off any negative reaction though, insisting he will continue to stick with social networking.

“I only joked about the shops because I’m one of the trendiest players at the club!” he said. “It was just a bit of banter and all my comments on twitter are always light-hearted.

“I like to interact with the fans and people will realise not to take everything I say on there too seriously.” He added: “Twitter is a great tool. I know a lot of players don’t go there because there’s always one or two that have something negative to say, but you find that in all walks of life though.

“As long as you use it in the right way, which I think I do, then it’s brilliant. I always try and respond to people.

“People are always going to be there to try and trip you up and you have to be aware of that. A lot of it is common sense. If people can see your personality through your Twitter then they’ll take things as a joke when they’re meant to be taken as a joke.

“If you’re respectful the majority of the time then when things like that happen then hopefully people will just take it as the joke it was intended to be.”


  • Don`t concern yourself Mr Mclean about the comments you are correct it`s a rubbish tip, you just do the best for the club and you never know you may become a hero with the fan`s.

  • I agree, it is a bit rubbish - but we have a JD Sports so you can keep dressing like a chav here as much as you could in Hull Aaron!

  • I hope he does not make the same mistakes as certain other tweeting ITFC players - he will make more friends with his feet (scoring goals) than he will with his fingers on a keypad.

  • Perhaps the 99.999999% of Offshore Investment FC supporters who have no interest whatsoever in the mindless drivel that is twitter can get a smartphone in on loan to kjeep in touch with his pointless soundbites in the few short weeks he is gracing us with his presence.

Promising Ipswich Town striker Monty Patterson has joined National League side Braintree Town on a month-long youth loan.

Four of Ipswich Town’s next six fixtures are at home. STUART WATSON takes a look at the run in detail.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes Newcastle United are destined for the Championship title after his team were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

The extra quality of Championship table-toppers Newcastle United showed as Ipswich Town were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

Ipswich will be looking to notch up another win after defeating Burton, while Newcastle will be aiming to stay top of the table, but both sets of fans will be remembering the former manager their clubs shared – Sir Bobby Robson.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says it would be tantamount to tactical suicide to go all-out attack at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United this afternoon.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has everything crossed that the fit-again Daryl Murphy does not come back to haunt his side at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United tomorrow.

At last! Ipswich Town have scored some goals – and after 10 months Freddie Sears even managed to grab one as well, much to the delight of himself and his teammates.

Being a dad helped Freddie Sears switch off from football during his recent 38-game goalless spell.
