Give it to Malky!
Friday, 11th Jan 2013 06:00

Mick McCarthy was keen to promote the case of Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay for the December Manager of the Month award when quizzed at his pre-match press conference yesterday. The Town boss, Mackay and Hull City manager Steve Bruce are the trio nominated for the gong, whose winner will be announced on Sky Sports News at 10am this morning.

McCarthy, whose Town side travel to take on Mackay's league-leading Cardiff on Saturday, said: “Let’s hope they give it to Malky because it usually screws the game after up if you win it!”

He says it’s an award for the way the side has played and that he doesn’t take such plaudits too seriously: “It just means that the team’s played well and had good results. That’s nice but I’m not bothered.”

He feels his reaction is typical of most bosses, although joking: “We all go home and stroke it when we’ve won it, and meow over it!

“It just tells us that we’ve had a good month, that the team’s had a good month. Whatever it is, the Team of the Month, the Player of the Month or Manager of the Month award."

In any case, McCarthy believes he is the outsider to win: "They won’t give it to me anyway because the other two have done better than me.”

I love the way this bloke deals with bull. This is just what we need, a manager that gets on with the job and doesn't get distracted by anything or anyone. Keep it up Mighty Mick. COYB.

Isn't it refreshing to read a new article on TWTD and not actually fear what has been said by the management or playing staff....long may it continue!

I know he didn't win it, but I now have visions of Mick sitting at home in a big chair stroking his manager of the month award Goldfinger style!
