McCarthy Back at Training
Monday, 4th Feb 2013 18:17
Manager Mick McCarthy was back at Playford Road today after missing Saturday's 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough and having been absent from training for most of last week due to a virus.
McCarthy's assistant Terry Connor was in charge in his absence and said after Saturday's game that his boss expected to be back at work today: " "At the end his message to the team was that they did really well, they performed well and got a good result and he’d see them all on Monday."
Meanwhile, Connor told the club site that he and McCarthy have worked with two-goal central defender Tommy Smith on various facets of his game: "We have spoken to Tommy about his defensive side and improving aspects of his play and he has taken that on board.
“We have also talked about the other end of the pitch. He had chipped in with one or two goals before the weekend and looked a threat. It was great to see him against Middlesbrough turning that threat into goals.”

Oh Ipswich, Where Do We Go From Here? by AConcernedIpswichFan
I return home from Ipswich’s 2-1 defeat at home to Royale Union Saint-Gilloise and I think to myself, ‘How much hope do we have? Will we ever reach up and grab that golden ticket into the Premier League?’
Top Championship Teams? by JimmyJazz
So we are mostly pessimistic about our chances next season. We are no match for Newcastle and other clubs who are spending money unlike us. Clubs like Blackburn are showing more ambition? Actually I disagree with the Blackburn point.
Is it Time to Be Worried? by RyanKerry
Are you confident about the upcoming season? I'm not. How depressing is it to wake up every morning to a new Championship signing and the high amount of money spent.
Luck, Truth, Girls in Portugal by Mullet
Football is obviously a global game and these days that concept is more keenly emphasised in no other place like England, with the Premier League as vast and cosmopolitan as the Roman Empire, while the national side flounders like ball-playing barbarians.
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may know, on 1st April 2012, me and my partner Becky lost our beautiful son, Tyler. He was only 15 months old when he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Later that year, we began fundraising for a brilliant charity, The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as FSID).
