Smith in Team of the Week
Monday, 4th Feb 2013 17:07
Centre-half Tommy Smith has been named in this week’s Football League Championship Team of the Week after his two-goal display in the Blues’ 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Portman Road on Saturday. Several other players with Town connections, including Smith’s close friend Jordan Rhodes, are also named in the select XI.
Rhodes, who is set to face his old club and Smith for the first time when the Blues travel to Blackburn next Saturday, scored twice as Rovers beat Bristol City 2-0.
Right-back Bradley Orr, who is also set to come up against Town next week having recently returned to Ewood Park, is also named, as is another ex-loanee David Stockdale, who is now with Hull for another temporary spell.
Derby central defender Richard Keogh is a former Town academy schoolboy and ballboy.
Team of the Week: David Stockdale (Hull City), Bradley Orr (Blackburn), Richard Keogh (Derby), Tommy Smith (Town), Andrew Taylor (Cardiff),

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
