|McCarthy: 200-Up Skuse a Valuable Asset|
He is a very good role model for young professionals and he seems like a really likeable and down-to-earth person but he is simply a very average championship midfielder.
Several championship teams may well be interested but I doubt if any top half clubs will view him as an automatic starter.
|Skuse Looking Ahead to Future as a Coach|
As a player I think Skuse is a very average championship midfielder and I do think that he is one of MM favourites who views him as undropable.
However as a person he comes across very well and in my opinion at least will make a good coach.
I think some of the comments directed towards him are a tad unwarranted.
|Suffolk Constabulary Can't Appeal Matchday Policing Costs Ruling|
I have no interest in the Royal Family but I accept that my taxes income goes to their security.
If it wasn’t for the football club how many local business would find it harder to survive.
Police serve the public and this protection is generated by tax. Therefore protect me officer when I’m at the football
|McCarthy's Pre-Sunderland Press Conference Live on TWTV at 3pm|
I thought Gleeson and Carayol were given free transfers by their clubs and that we signed them until the end of the season?
Is four loan players really too much? Especially when we have (and had) so many injuries.
How much would Besaint, Connolly and Cater-Vickers cost if they were available? Far far too much for us.
|Connolly: Skusey's Underrated But Not By Us|
Personally I think Skuse is an indication of how far we've slipped as a team that such an average player is now regarded as an important first team player.
But in fairness you can say the same for quite a few of Micks team.
I will say that as a person Skuse comes across as a decent articulate man and in this sense is the perfect role model for younger players.
|McCarthy: It's About Trusting Terrific Celina|
I went to Burton and it was obvious that they are a really poor team. A bit of quality and style would have won the game for us by half-time.
I get that you need to trust younger players who may well be a bit selfish on the ball. But surly you need to have trust in the established players that they can settle with the ball instead of panicking every time.
MM seems to be a be blinkered in terms of seeing what he wants to see.
|McCarthy: Sorry for Swearing But Otherwise No Regrets Regarding Post-Burton Comments|
I can understand MM being defensive - if I was being abused consistently then I would find it hard not to react. Especially given how horrible last season was.
Being truthful, MM style of football is appallingly bad - professional footballers should be able to pass the ball on the ground and able to pass the ball rather than long hoofs and that surly must be down to MM.
|Bart: Burnley Move Was Really Close|
Most footballers are ambitious and I'm sure Bart wants to play for Poland regularly.
Yes he likes life at Ipswich but if a premier league club comes in for him then he has a duty to himself to jump up a level. It is possible to be happy somewhere but if a better opportunity arises then you still leave.
It takes a very good keeper to get our defence out of jail regularly and Bart has done so.
|New EFL TV Deal|
Without Sky's money then the vast majority of stadiums in the top two divisions will be awful. Clubs are in the top flight due to having the right to play in there. Once upon a time Swansea, WBA and Bournemouth and Brighton wouldn't have been able to spare a fiver. Now they spend millions on players and its due to the money of Sky.
I'm probably in the minority but Sky has been good to football. Yes, its now probably gone too far but if you class football as a product then it generates billions. And so that's the main reason why a lot of players earn a lot of money. What clubs do with that money is down to them - they could subsidy ticket places, they could refuse to pay agents and players a lot of money. They could overspend and go into administration eg Bolton.
So its a double-edged sword for me.
|Town's Academy Top Three in Category Two Audit|
This is fantastic news and something to be proud of. The premier league seems to change the rules surrounding catergory one status on a seasonal basis - maybe they don't want non-premier league teams in their club. Doesn't seem to be fair.
|Butcher on FA Diving Panel|
Good thing they don't have diving panels for Sunday league games. I've seen some proper swan dives.
|Bialkowski Returns Against Gills|
Maybe a couple of clubs are interested in Bru and want to take a look at him before making a final decision.
