Sorry to the outers

But Marcus allowing Mick to tie both Chambo and Berra up, when Smith and Webster are under contract is the writing on the wall surely?

The case for keeping Mick...
at 20:38 19 Apr 2017

...by Marcus Evans

Whilst ticket sales have dropped a couple of k, and therefore there is £1m less in the kitty, why spend potentially another £1m getting rid of Mick and TC?

Yes the football has been bad, but the Championship status was never really in doubt and this has been a terrible season - things surely won't be this bad again?

4 seasons out of 5 when Mick has performed above expectations, is one bad year really worth getting rid over when he is the safe hand.

Appointing another manager is a risk and will be costly, you know Mick isn't going to kick off about transfer kitty etc.

It might be boring for fans, but we spend £500 a year whereas Evans spends £5m a year so can see why he doesn't want to jeopardise Championship status

Now we are mathematically safe, is it time for some changes?
at 10:03 19 Apr 2017

Firstly, Tommy Smith in for Christophe Berra.

Danny Rowe getting minutes at Tom Lawrence's expense.

Decision needs to be made on Jordan Spence, or get Josh Emmanuel in

Even Dozzell getting a few minutes instead of Huws if deal isn't going to be done?

Plus any players with slight knocks

What do others think??

...who are refusing to renew because the manager is stubborn and arrogant.

And will renew if the manager changes, showing their own form of stubbornness and arrogance.

Nothing in it really, and I'm not offended - but it's clear that Mick not happy here and is off.

Can understand why he is hurt by the fans reactions to him after doing a good job on the whole under seemingly difficult circumstances.

Last few games he has just sloped off the pitch without acknowledging the fans - it's all quite obvious really.

He'll be gone soon, and we will then see how trying the circumstances are here for the manager.

Hard to disagree with a lot Mick says in that article
at 16:25 12 Apr 2017

“I saved the club from relegation and I’ve had three top 10 finishes and the one time I have a bad season then people have turned their backs on me, which is a bit of a surprise and it’s disappointing.

“I don’t think it’s justified what’s gone on, to be honest with you.

“It’s been tough this year, it has. We’ve not been good. And it’s sad that a lot of people have turned on me and turned on the players

“There’s not a lot [you can do], play well and win games. We’ve not done enough of that this season. But I don’t think it constitutes some of the vitriol which is going about, but hey ho.”

And all the bits about budget at the bottom of it, we are paupers in this division now.

...when you see where we are in the division - i can't help but think that Evans' most costly mistake will be the one to have not backed Mick McCarthy properly.

The situation has gone on too long, and Mick has to go now because of how things are, but we are more likely to get worse than better without him here when you look at all the factors and history of his ownership.

Player of the Season...
at 10:34 6 Apr 2017

Obviously it is a 2 horse race between Bart and Lawrence, who are you voting for?

Bart for me, Lawrence has done well in fits and starts but Bialkowski has been brilliant consistently all season.

When you hear Mick talk about him it feels like he was about Cressy and Mings before they went - I really hope he is still here next year

Emyr Huws - signed permanently?
at 08:20 6 Apr 2017

If you look at the FA Registration document for January - Huws falls in the category of signing a full contract at ITFC.

See link and click on January.

http://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/policies/player-registration/mont

He is in the same category on here as Spence and Taylor, opposed to Diagouraga and Samuel.

Not sure whether that is to do with 'paying his own wages' or whether he will be a freebie in the summer because of this but interesting nonetheless.

You can see why Mick doesn't like trying to play out from the back....
at 08:11 5 Apr 2017

Our best performances tend to come against sides that try and do it when we can press effectively and force mistakes. It's a difficult system to implement, without very good players, and some sides really over do it like Wigan did last night.

We really needed that win, and the league table looks 100x better this morning, and we are as good as safe now - I can't see Blackburn, Bristol City AND Forest all picking up 10 points....one would be unlikely, 2 almost impossible but no chance that all 3 do it.

Time to pick up a couple more points over next 3 games, have an announcement that Mick is going ahead of Sheff Weds game and give him the send off his overall tenure deserves and see some of the kids in action ahead of next season.

Home gym

Anyone got one?

I've got the space and thinking of setting one up - won't be much but just a weights bench, some free weights, a punch bag and maybe a couple of kettle bells.

Any ideas? Just found that since having a little one will be better off doing 30 mins to an hour in the morning would be easier than getting out to the gym and now clocks have changed and sun is shining I feel motivated!
