Ipswich Town players lighten mood with new hairstyles

In an attempt to lighten the mood ahead of Ipswich Town’s televised FA Cup replay at non-league Lincoln City, the Tractor Boys have adopted terrible haircuts of old footballers.

Even manager Mick McCarthy gets in on the act, although you’ll have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see his effort.

After some deliberation, you might conclude they would all be better getting rid of their hair altogether, perhaps using the best head shaver around.

Skipper Luke Chambers, on-loan winger Tom Lawrence, defender Adam Webster and striker Freddie Sears have all gone for striking wild mullets as made famous by the likes of Chelsea’s Ian Britton, Portsmouth’s Alan Biley, Chris Waddle and even Robbie Savage.

Meanwhile, left back Jonas Knudsen sports a pineapple hairstyle made famous by Nottingham Forest’s Jason Lee, about whom the crowds chanted: “He’s got a pineapple on his head”.

Defender Christophe Berra has gone for a natty mop that was worn inexplicably by former Chelsea player John Dempsey back in the 1970s. It’s quite fetching…

Young starlet Andre Dozzell looks fab with his Ronaldo (large Ronaldo from Brazil) shave.

Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski chose the famous hairstyle sported by keeper Rene Higuita from Colombia, who you’ll recall did the famous scorpion-kick save at Wembley.

And finally, even under-fire manager Mick McCarthy has got in on the act, although we’re not sure if this is actually a disguise or not.
