Who is this "Fringe player" that Mick has said he will look at playing this Saturday?..
“I may have a look at one, possibly, and the view would be that if he’s involved in the squad and he’s got to play at some stage we need to know [if he's up to it] and it’s a good game to find out, that’s for sure"
With McDonnell being offered a new contract, it might well be him (also with midfield being a glaringly obvious issue this season)
Other contenders: Emmanuel Kenlock Digby
Will be interesting to see 1) who it is.. 2) whether they take the opportunity
You can't really argue with his record, or his honesty.. it's very refreshing to see a manager accept their 'level' by saying he didn't really enjoy the premier league and accepts "that the Championship is his level,"
Wouldn't be surprised to see him managing someone else next season (probably battling at the other end of the table)
I'm quite used to it. We aren't a particularly fashionable club and we haven't got any interesting side plots. I remember the circus of being 'Roy Keane's Ipswich' and am relatively happy being under the radar now.
It is fair to say that Derby, QPR, Hull, Leeds et al get the majority of the coverage in the league. The truth of it is, we don't have enough of a national 'following' or enough people who hate us. Everyone seems to be indifferent toward us. Which is not a terrible thing in my view
