Missing Mick
Written by SpiritOfJohn on Saturday, 21st Apr 2018 08:37

Just like Jonas Knudsen I find myself pining for the good old days of the Mick McCarthy era. This current wave of optimism sweeping over the club must surely end soon and come crashing down around us. One day, maybe sooner maybe later, you will also feel some nostalgia for those halcyon days under McCarthy. With these thoughts in mind, here is a tribute to the great man and his legacy:

Those were the days of Super Mick
We had a proper team then
A hundred players came in the door
I think I can name you ten.

We played a style of football
You just don't see any more
We stifled the opposition
The ball was not on the floor.

We copied our rival's formation
We matched them man for man
We tried to stop them playing
That was our master plan.

Before and after every game
We were told our chance was slim
The other team were better
Mick thought the fans were dim.

Portman Road was feeling empty
The grass was looking bare
The goals were drying up
Entertainment was not there.

Mick was a canny manager
He had no money to spend
Signing loans and freebies
Shy Marcus was his friend.

He saved us from the drop
And reminded us every day
Humble he was not
It was his Yorkshire way.

He sorted out the mess
Left by Jewell and Keane
He might have stayed on longer
If his words were not obscene.

The players loved him dearly
At least the ones he rated
His loyalty to some blokes
Cannot be overstated.

We will miss you Super Mick
Of that you can be sure
But in many other ways
We'll enjoy what we wished for.
