McCarthy Already Considering Extending Spence's Contract
Thursday, 16th Feb 2017 16:21
Town boss Mick McCarthy says he’s already considering offering recent signing Jordan Spence a longer term contract.
The 26-year-old joined the Blues on a deal to the end of the season last month having previously spent time on trial at Portman Road in September and October when he played two games for the U23s.
The former West Ham and MK Dons man, primarily a right-back, has made three starts and two sub appearances for Town in a variety of positions, most recently on the right of the back three.
“He’s done very well,” McCarthy said. “It makes you wonder why and how he’s not somewhere else. He came here [in September] and Chambo was playing right-back and we had Josh Emmanuel, of course, so circumstances were different.
“He didn’t stay, he went elsewhere and the fact that he was still available in the January window was to our benefit.
“And to his because he’s come and he’s played and he’s done very, very well and we’d have to be looking and thinking, ‘Can we give him a longer deal?’.
“But that’s for another day, let him keep playing, let’s keep getting performances and results with him in the team.”

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans
With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
