You're asking the wrong people. This is the lot that wanted to get rid of Mick McCarthy out of childish boredom and some desire to see revenge against a massively out-performing manager who hadn't managed to take us up.

It can't possibly get any worse in league one, we'll tear it up, 100 goals, 100 points, no more hoofball, blah blah blah.

Where does this road lead? We shall see. But two recent staging posts on the journey have been:

Let's get rid of Lambert, it can't possibly get any worse...

Let's get rid of Evans, it can't possibly get any worse...

You can for a bit - but any fanbase will soon get bored of same old same old year after year. Eventually every club needs to try and make a step forward to keep the fans interested and enthused; look how our attendances dwindled for a spell in the late 90s despite Burley building a squad for promotion.

History is being rewritten about the MM era by both sides. The outers deny it was ever good under him and say the football was always 100% dire. The inners want to pretend that everything was wonderful and seem to willingly overlook the fact we were heading for disaster at ST renewal time and the relationship between the manager and a chunk of supporters was irreparable (yes it was, with a few exceptions, because that chunk of fans were a bit simple).

If Evans had acted in December and given Cook a transfer window who knows what would have happened?

Then again, maybe Evans would still be here...

I’d rather have my “challenging for the title and a European place” status back thanks.

Settling for mid table mediocrity would have resulted in a slow and painful death rather than the bullet in the head we got under Hurst. But the outcome would have been the same.

Yey! Ambition!

Oh, hang on. I think we've won the possession stats cup. *twirls scarf above head*

Mick was picking up a very good wage with the chief purpose of simply keeping the team rolling by and hoping, by sheer fluke, that we somehow get promoted. He was complicit in allowing the team to stand almost still and allowing most teams to past us.

The football was awful, the fact that we are in a worse under different managers, is beside the point. It’s all down to the sheer incompetence of Evans.

The numbskulls who whine one about Mick should simply grow up.

Agree with this completely
Why can't we hope for better than dull football in the bottom half of the Championship?
Evans and McCarthy had settled for that, however I didn't want to be bored in the Championship and I certainly didn't want to be dismayed by incompetent football in League 1!

They are not the only two options - we have to all keep striving for better, and I think the new owners and manager agree.

For full clarity, Mick initially did an amazing job and the football was direct but still attacking in nature. But over time it became what it was...appalling. If you want Mick to sort out your club then he’s the man. Two seasons with him won’t do long term damage and the club will be better for it.

Anything more than two or three seasons and the next couple or so managers will really struggle.

I can't deny that - I really enjoyed the play-off season, especially the first half.
I just think with every setback he went more defensive which ended with us playing 5-3-2 with 2-3 holding midfielders!
