Why I'm still Mick In (Just) 22:54 - Oct 28 with 2571 viewsDropCliffsNotBombs

For me, it's basic economics.* Taking all emotion out of it, let's say that each new manager starts with a positive 'currency' with the fans of say +50.

In his first season, steering us well clear from relegation and making us hard to beat after the shambles of Jewell (I really thought we were done for), his 'currency increased markedly (e.g. now +150).

2nd season consolidates and seems to be building a side in his image - maybe a small increase (now +180)

3rd season - play-offs despite limited budget and no real investment in January. Currency increased greatly - now +280?)

4th season - slightly disappointing 7th but not disastrous. not great football so maybe a slight loss in currency (250).

last year - horrific. turgid football, lowest finish. loss of Murphy might lessen the decrease a bit but back down to +100ish (right down from 250)

this year - decent start, some good games and some dire. overall, slight loss (+80)

so, for me, he still has some currency left in the bank. if come the end of the season that has gone, I agree that change should be made.


not sure how clear this analogy is, but this is how I see his time here.

*everybody will have different views on what adds/loses 'currency' so people will have different opinions on how much credit he has in the bank. (comments like today's post-match might be enough to lose credit for some fans).

2nd & 3rd seasons were ultimately ruined by McG getting injured. I firmly believe that in the play off season it was the difference between scraping into play offs or scraping into 2nd place.

HOWEVER

Freddie Sears came in and did rather well that season... so who knows.

exactly, and I completely understand why many people want Mick gone - their balance of positive/ negative credit earned and lost will be different to mine. For lots of people, his positive credit will have all been lost. (and for truce it's still around +1000).

I think it's sad that so many people though have got to the stage where they have become so mired in their stance and are so anti-Mick, they have lost all ability to make considered judgements on events and individual results.

Barring an unforeseen season this year, I think it is time to part ways in July but i hope when the dust settles people will be able to look back at the majority of Micks time here with thanks for getting us out of that awful Keane/Jewell-shaped hole.

I appreciate your view and what Mick has done here

But

It’s the horrible approach to the beautiful game that i cannot bear. I never wanted Micks brand of football at my club but ME’s awful running of it, it was deemed necessary. Win, lose or draw im consistent in disliking what I’ve seen. I support 100% during games i might add.

agreed, some of the games in the last few seasons have been very hard watching. therefore, he loses a great deal of currency on that basis.

tempering it slightly, I would argue that he is hamstrung by a variety of factors: budget, the sale of murph, injuries to key players (I know all clubs get them, but losing didz, Fraser, Webster, Huws etc for long periods clearly affected performance). therefore, his credit does not run dry so quickly (for me).

I understand why people want him gone (and not 'bed-wetters'); likewise I don't think people who think he has earned more time are 'happy-clappers'. purely different interpretations of economy!!

Yes, one of the main reasons I follow Ipswich completely irrationally over many years is so I can apply economic theory to an emotionless situation.

Hear hear

What the original posters 'scoring system' fails to recognise is that 1000s of Town fans were already getting concerned even in the play-off season!!

There were already many questionable performances even though it was deemed a great season.

The quality of his football is poor. That is the underlying, now unquestionable, fact.

He's done a decent enough job if one looks at it objectively.

But we desperately need a fresh approach to the coaching and management here, top to bottom.

It could be disastrous him walking during this season. Evans and Milne need to plan properly for next summer.

... and a lack of investment from Evans. In the playoff season a very modest investment would have seen us challenging top two in my opinion.

I'm very much Mick in, we're sitting well despite a ridiculous injury list. FINALLY been able to play the same defence back to back games for heavens sake. Seem to have settled on a back 4!

Think he's recruited far better than anyone else had they come in given budget. Issue being, style of footy and perhaps at times not picking players in correct positions.

Hopefully Adeyemi back for PNE!
