Ipswich Town are the topic of many Championship fans right now, thanks to their hot start to the 2023/24 season.
Ipswich Town finished second in League One last season, winning promotion to the Championship after a four-year stint in England’s third tier.
And many predicted that Ipswich would thrive in a more technical Championship league this time around. Few could have expected how well they’d perform.
Kieran McKenna’s side currently sit second in the table, level on points with Leicester City in first, having won seven of their first eight league games.
Everything is looking up for Ipswich right now, but on the most recent episode of the EFL Podcast, pundit Gary Weaver highlighted what he believes is Town’s biggest problem right now.
“I think the worry for Ipswich is holding on to Kieran, isn’t it?” He continued, saying: “It’s the best-ever start to a second tier season by a newly-promoted club in EFL history.”
McKenna’s name frequently appears on bookmakers’ lists when managerial positions arise, however the most recent links were to Celtic in the summer, followed by the Republic of Ireland job earlier this month.
Town have a strong chance of achieving an unexpected promotion this season, but if a top post becomes available and McKenna becomes a person of interest, the Tractor Boys may be in for a stressful period.
