McCarthy Delighted His Players Are the Talk of the Town
Wednesday, 12th Nov 2014 06:00
Boss Mick McCarthy is delighted that his own players Tyrone Mings, David McGoldrick, Teddy Bishop and Daryl Murphy are currently the talk of the Town rather than just Premier League loanee Jonny Williams.
Left-back Mings continues to be linked with a host of Premier League sides, most notably Arsenal, after his impressive start to the season, while Murphy is joint-top scorer in the Championship on 10 goals and has this week been joined in the Irish squad by strike partner David McGoldrick.
Bishop, 18, is the latest academy product to break into the first team and is impressing top flight scouts in addition to Portman Road regulars.
Responding to praise for Mings’s performances, McCarthy said: “Isn’t it nice to have one that we’re talking about like that?
“Isn’t it nice that we’ve got David McGoldrick and Daryl Murphy that they’re talking about?
“And isn’t it nice that we’ve got Teddy Bishop that people are talking about? That’s what I like about a team, when you’ve got a number of them where people are saying ‘Wow, there’s a good player for you’.
“All right, Jonny Williams isn’t ours. Isn’t it nice that it’s not Jonny Williams that’s getting spoken about now, it’s Tyrone Mings, Teddy Bishop, it’s the two centre forwards.
“As much as I love Jonny Williams, he’s not going to be my player and is probably never, ever going to be my player, so it’s nice that it’s our players that are being spoken about. But when he plays I hope they’re all talking about him when he gets the goals!”

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
