West Ham United recently completed a deal to sign a talented young Ipswich Town player in Sam Ford. The 17-year-old had left Ipswich prior to signing the deal. He has been on trial at West Ham recently and also scored on his development squad debut in February.
Ipswich Town fans would have, of course, been disappointed to see one of their top talents head to the Premier League side.
So seeing that another of their top young talents watched West Ham in action yesterday will perhaps have them concerned once again.
Off to watch West Ham v spurs! Hopefully a good game #thfc— Ted bishop (@ted10bishop) March 2, 2016
Good night at west ham, shame about the result! Cheers @Noble16Mark for the hospitality— Ted bishop (@ted10bishop) March 2, 2016
Of course there is absolutely no indication that this was anything more than a football fan checking out a top football game. The fact he is also clearly a Tottenham Hotspur fan would also suggest nothing sinister.
West Ham fans would no doubt like Bishop at the club.
He burst onto the scene last season - playing 33 times for the club and impressing under Mick McCarthy.
The talented 19-year-old has however had his struggles this term. He has not played a single game in 2015-16 after a long battle with a hamstring problem.
Hopefully he can find his feet at Ipswich again soon as it would be a shame to see such a precocious talent decimated by injury.
