Was watching the notts forest v Cardiff match there and Mick was commenting on it with some other lad. Chopra gets booked and the following conversation occurs:

commentator 1: 'micheal chopra and his strike partner have now received 12 bookings each'

Mick: 'really? So they have 27 bookings between them?'

commentator 1: 'no Mick, that would be 24 bookings'

what a fooking legend

In fairness this was said after they were saying that Boothroyd (the other Cardiff forward) was on target for 15 bookings, so maybe Mick had this in his mind. He is a smart, decent and genuinely funny bloke - would defo beat McAteer on Mastermind

Before the over brown-nosing towards Mick continues, this is the man who told Denis Irwin to "prove himself" prior to an international match, this one of the most decorated Irish players in history, with shedloads of caps and one of the finest fullbacks in the history of the Premier League.............like Mick alot, but this was insulting to Dinny at the time.

I know a couple of Ipswich season ticket holders and they say the fans have wanted him out for most of the season as they don't like his route 1 football. I think a lot of Ipswich fans are slightly deluded and living in the past, they don't seem to realise that Ipswich have one of the smallest budgets in the division and that he is constantly papering over the cracks. He replaced Murphy with Leon Best as an example. The football might not be pretty but it can be hard to play like Barcelona on a limited budget

Ipswich fans are completely aware that they've been financially broke ever since that debut season in the Premier League in the 90's, I had to research what's actually gone so badly wrong for them this season but it appears it's the whole of 2016 where things have started going wrong not just since August. I found the following;

0.8 goals per game in 2016
29/36 games at Home without scoring within the first 55 minutes

I'm not gonna lie, it looks pretty bleak regardless what financial situation you're in.

Have it on pretty good authority that when Daryl Murphy left Ipswich, he wasn't expecting McCarthy to last much longer there, due to behind the scenes issues (nothing to do with that particular transfer, they got on well & presumably still do to an extent, more to do with with general financial issues at the club). 

That squad/team has stagnated, in his 4 and a bit years, Mick has got them into the playoffs a few times, then was forced to sell his better players (likes of Mings & Murphy), I think the remainder of the mainly experienced championship pros & quite possibly McCarthy himself, have realised they aren't good enough to go any further, in effect, he is a dead man walking, no fault of his own, but it seems to be just a matter of timing at this stage as to when the inevitable divorce occurs. 

Mick has enough credit in the bank to pick up another job at some point, especially in a division he has generally done exceptionally well in, as for Ipswich & their fans, ya couldn't be quite as sure. Be careful what ya wish for & all that.

Yeah, if and when McCarthy goes, I'd expect Ipswich to end up in a relegation scrap. He's done exceptionally well with zero budget there, I don't think anyone would do any better and think whoever succeeds him will undoubtedly do worse.

Yeah that seems to be the size of it, Mick isn't going to throw the towel in and they won't sack him for as long as possible. Within six months of him leaving they will probably want him back as they find themselves heading for league one.

He's been unlucky that he's never got to manage a side with a strong academy with a stream of players coming through. He is pretty poor in the transfer market. I can't think of one outstanding signing he made at Millwall, Wolves, Sunderland or Ipswich although to be fair, he has never had a huge budget to work with. The effect he has had at every club he has managed has fizzled out after a few seasons. He won't struggle to get another job but I can't see him turning things around now at Ipswich unless there is a major cash injection.

I agree with you generally, although you'd have to say McCarthy has done very well with signings at Ipswich. He brought Murphy and McGoldrick back from the dead and they nearly got him back in the premier league. He's generally poor with a transfer budget though.

Eh. Managing clubs on peanuts money is his area of expertise. 
What he did at Sunderland is so extremely under-rated that anyone who plays it down does deserve a slap across the face.
The job he took on was a club about 18 months away from administration, which would lead to penalties, assets being sold off left right and centre just to keep the club in the black never mind in the Championship and with those resources he managed a FA Cup semi-final and a Promotion the following season, forget the Premiership and what happened that season, the TV money alone actually saved the club from disaster.

He had his chance to deal with proper investment at Wolves.

He needs a Chairman who is willing to invest some cash back into the club, not some businessman who charges interest on a club already in 9 figures of debt.

Mick was an is a great man and manager. The problem at Ipswich is money and stagnation. Also the departures of Aaron Cresswell, Ty Mings, and Darryl Murphy has not helped.

But given the current state of mind of the fans, and tonight's result it will be significant faith the board will vest in him if they decide to keep with him

Nonsense. 7th last season and play offs the year before on a shoestring. Struggled for half a season this year after having his best players consistently sold from under him. Still be plenty of championship chairmen happy to take a punt on him.

At the rate the championship lads get sacked (gone to less than 18 months now), he will be absolutely grand, if things fall right for him he might even get a new job the same week. Look at Neil Warnock, no idea how many times he has retired now, but because he has a decent record in getting into playoffs, and last season with Rotherham, avoiding relegation, clubs come looking for him all the time. 

Looking at where Rotherham are now without him, I can see Ipswich heading for that end of the table quicker than McCarthy .

Exactly, he will be seen in the same light as Warnock. I would wager that McCarthy will still be knocking around the championship for the next few years, I can't say that about Ipswich with the same certainty.

Anyway, we are all being very presumptuous, he might still be there at the weekend, having lost the supporters it does feel like it is a matter of time though.

The difference between Warnock and McCarthy though is that Warnock has a purpose - He's the king of the Championship. 
McCarthy as I said last page is very good on a squad on a limited budget, but there is no club currently who fits that criteria. 

The Championship has evolved into mass panic overspending in hope they'll get the £100 million for getting promoted or simply avoiding relegation, no one says at the start of the season right we'll go for mid-table.

You think Rotherham, Burton Albion, Bristol City, Preston, Barnsley, Brentford etc are all overspending to reach the premier league? Now that is funny.

Looking at where Rotherham are now without him, I can see Ipswich heading for that end of the table quicker than McCarthy .

The difference between Warnock and McCarthy though is that Warnock has a purpose - He's the king of the Championship. 
McCarthy as I said last page is very good on a squad on a limited budget, but there is no club currently who fits that criteria. 

The Championship has evolved into mass panic overspending in hope they'll get the £100 million for getting promoted or simply avoiding relegation, no one says at the start of the season right we'll go for mid-table.
You think Rotherham, Burton Albion, Bristol City, Preston, Barnsley, Brentford etc are all overspending to reach the premier league? Now that is funny.

Or relegation avoiding. Every team you just listed except Brentford started the season fighting relegation.

Congratulations on cutting half the post out. You may pass go, you may collect 200 idiot points.

Firstly, you have called me an idiot in a post you opened with ';'Or relegation avoiding''. As a sentence. You said there is no club with a limited budget,(at least I think that is what you were trying to say, it isn't crystal clear) I gave you several. I don't know how you start a season fighting relegation; surely every team does? The fans of Ipswich were probably expecting to try and be 'relegation avoiding' when Mick McCarthy took over, seeing as they were rock bottom and hadn't won in 12 matches.
 I also very much doubt the fans of Preston or Bristol City expected anything other than a season of mid-table mediocrity. For what it is worth, Preston, Brentford and Barnsley had roughly the same odds for promotion and relegation. The bookies expected them all to finish somewhere between 11th and 16th, alongside Ipswich. I would expect fans of  Fulham, Huddersfield, Birmingham etc  all expected similar. I would imagine if any of the clubs I have mentioned lost their manager in the morning and Mick McCarthy was available I would expect he would be on the shortlist, with the exception of the mad house that is Birmingham!

McCarthy didn't even look at Keane as he walked off the pitch. Disgraceful conduct from Keane as a captain in a friendly and all.

It must've been very difficult for McCarthy when he had a captain that clearly didn't respect him but was more or less unstoppable.

No matter how staunchly pro Roy Keane you are, his commitment to Ireland left a lot to be desired as a player (off the pitch) especially when he was the captain.

Ipswich have one of the smallest budgets in the division, consistently selling players and replacing them with cheaper options, he has done extremely well to keep them out of any relegation battles. The problem is though, their fans still think they should be challenging for promotion every season and playing like Brazil '70.

It is interesting to look back on that team which played three months after the game at Anfield. It was more naturally set up, and I recall in spite of losing 2-0 we missed a penalty, had a goal disallowed, and also hit the post. Would Euro 96 have happened had that team played at Anfield?

He's keen on coming back anyway:

McCarthy, who ended a six-year spell as Ipswich boss earlier this year, added that he would love a chance to take charge of the team again.

"If their contracts came to an end in two years’ time and the job is available and I’m out of work, I would love it again," he said.

The foundation is there for a decent enough side if the right man gets them organized at the very least. We need a kind draw in qualification of course but if we are lucky and get say Switzerland and Czech Republic or Poland and Ukraine we should have a chance. The draw is absolutely key though.

Yip that Switzerland, also the team incredibly fortunate to defeat the North in the play off. They were no great shakes at the World cup either. Their win against Belgium was hugely impressive but more probably a fluke- 2-0 up in 20mins Belgium switched off and never switched back on. Great result though to be fair.

Our chances against half decent teams second seed sides, and the lower pot 1 teams could really depend on us building up a nice string of momentum on the way. 

Can anyone recall if Mick had us pressing teams and putting pressure on them in their own half, that type of style built on a solid start could see us beating teams who are better than us - at home especially.

The team to draw in Pot 1 as of now is Poland - they are in a period of transition like ourselves. 

People will scoff at this one, but England would be my second choice from Pot 1. I think due to the nature of a derby game, we could win a point at home that the 2nd / 4th seed teams will not.

Yeah but they are first seeds while Denmark and Wales are second.

They are miles ahead of us, but we'd have a better chance of getting one or two points off them than we would against France or Spain - even one point against the top seed could be difference between finishing ahead of the pot 2 or not.

I would still prefer Kenny to get the job but I can understand the reasoning of the FAI siding with McCarthy over Kenny. The new manager is straight into a qualifying campaign and one thing McCarthy holds an advantage over Kenny is experience of that sort of big occasion. 

McCarthy is a short term fix. I haven't a huge problem with it but still would prefer Kenny coming in and creating long term structures. Had we be going into a year featuring fixtures like the one just gone then it would be an absolute no brainer to hire Kenny but given the magnitude of games I do understand them siding with McCarthy.

Like McCarthy wouldn't be the worst because at least he works with the team and they know what he wants from them in games. You can guarantee all 11 will be going out on the pitch knowing what they're meant to be doing at least. They'll have a game plan which is one thing we have lacked in recent times.

It would be great to see Lee Carsley and/or Steven Reid involved in any new setup. Even one at senior as part of coaching staff and one as u21 manager would be a huge boost for Irish football.
