Lower figures for gate receipts, and media and commercial income, contributed to the losses along with a higher wage bill and "other expenses" of £800,000.

Ipswich made £10.8m on player transfers in the year ending June 2011 following the sales of Connor Wickham and Jon Walters, but that figure plummeted to just £248,000 over the next 12 months.

The overall turnover was down by over £2m to £15.04m, while the club's overall debt rose to £79.62m.

Club officials have set their sights on reducing the wage bill to prepare for the implementation of the Financial Fair Play regulations.

Ipswich's wages-to-turnover ratio is one of the highest in the Championship at 119% - an increase of 17% on the previous year.

The accounts also revealed that former Town chief executive Simon Clegg earned an annual salary of £193,000.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
