Stearman: Whirlwind Six Months at Wolves
Saturday, 2nd Feb 2013 06:02
Richard Stearman has reflected on a topsy-turvy time in his career that has seen him join Ipswich on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 25-year-old defender said: “I was hopeful that I would get to play a bit more at Wolves in the past couple of months but I realised I needed to get out and maybe get some games under my belt to improve my match fitness.
“When I heard it was Ipswich and my old gaffer, Mick McCarthy, who were interested I jumped at the opportunity.
“It has been a bit of a whirlwind year, or at least six months, at Wolves I suppose. They are towards the wrong end of the table from where they expected to be and a new manager has come in and gone.
“I think they’ve got a little bit of a hangover from the Premiership relegation, so fingers crossed they can turn it round and climb the table, as I hope Ipswich do as well.”
Apart from McCarthy and his assistant, Terry Connor, Stearman said he knows several members of the Portman Road playing squad.
He added: “I was with Frank [Nouble] at Wolves, played with Lee [Martin] for England and generally you get to know players from playing against each other. When I walked into the dressing room I saw a lot of friendly and familiar faces.
“Ipswich is a massive club with a great fan base and whenever I’ve played here it’s always been a great atmosphere. It’s a great set-up here and hopefully I’ll enjoy my time.”

An Assessment of Mick McCarthy's Management So Far by KBsSocks
Having passed the total days-in-job of Paul Jewell and The Dark Lord (and Jackie Milburn) and now fast-approaching 700 days in post, Mick McCarthy's next target is Jim Magilton's and John Duncan's 1050-odd days, which is in a year's time, more-or-less.

I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.

Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
