I won't put up the link but this is taken from an article by Martin Samuel about Paul Pogba, Joey Barton and Mick McCarthy.....
"Meanwhile, at Ipswich, fans are jubilant having been relegated to League One less than halfway through April. They have to be.
Otherwise they must admit that, in the circumstances and given the budgetary restrictions, Mick McCarthy was doing a superb job keeping the club free of relegation trouble, and if the football was less than expansive, it was necessary to survive.
Instead, they made his life a misery and he quit. The managers that have succeeded him, Paul Hurst and Paul Lambert, have won a grand total of four games in all competitions this season.
McCarthy won more than that between August 5 and August 19, in his final campaign. He won 17 games in total before walking out, prematurely, with a 1-0 win over Barnsley. Yet to display unhappiness at an upcoming fixture list that may include trips to Scunthorpe and Rochdale next season would, in many cases, involve admitting being misguidedly harsh on McCarthy."
Makes you think, doesn't it?

but I thought we played well.
What did people expect? With all the money Norwich have paid out in the last few years, their wage bill must be horrendous and they have to wear that awful green and yellow.
I was impressed with several of our players. Judge and Chalobah stood out for me. Chambers and Knudsen also had good games.
Well done to Paul Lambert for his passion.
I just hope Freddie isn’t too badly injured.
I have a feeling we can give Derby a good game if we play like that!
|The thing that has saddened me most about Marcus Evans ownership...|

is the lack of heroes and legends.
I wasn't around to support the greats such as Kevin Beattie, Mick Mills, Paul Mariner, Terry Butcher.....I could go on and on naming them. Players whose names are still mentioned often when talking about Ipswich Town Football Club.
I started watching Town when the likes of Marcus Stewart, Martijn Reuser, Jim Magilton, Matt Holland, Fabian Wilnis, Pablo, Shefki etc were playing. Great players who may eventually be admitted to the Ipswich Hall of Fame.
Then Marcus Evans took the club over. How many players from his era will even be thought of again? His teams have been made up of loanees, journeymen, players who stay a year or so and are off again. Players who do well and are sold off to other teams.
In the last 11years how many players will really stand out as legends? Luke Chambers maybe, Daryl Murphy perhaps but I can't for the life of me think of any more. The youngsters who make it will be sold on.
I certainly don't think any of the 'new' players will ever gain legend status. What will the fans of today tell their children and grandchildren about Ipswich Town?
Sad days at our football club.
