A presumably 24 hour flight from here to NZ, a game where he gets injured, followed by a 19 hour flight to Peru and potentially a game (possibly at altitude) and then another 14-15 hour flight home getting back at some point on Friday.
Both managers who are Championship stalwarts, with more ups than downs, both like to play a more direct style of football - but was listening to the Blue Monday video after the game on Tuesday and made really good points with regards to differing styles.
Warnock gets attacking players on the pitch, and allows them to just attack without too much worry about defending, whereas Mick wants all his players to defend before they earn the right to attack.
Warny has been successful with this in the past, getting the best out of a player like Adel Taarabt, and is being successful again. Is the best way out of this league to attack your way out of it now?
I don't think Mick is a dinosaur who's been left behind, but has maybe become too conservative for this division - whereas Warnock is excelling with a more gung ho style
Now i'm not particularly precious and generally come down on the side of Mick because he is doing a job with restraints that many don't seem to take into account properly.
But the press conference yesterday is an absolute joke, and a whilst he's trying to kick in the teeth those that aren't supporting and creating a negative atmosphere, I think he ends up giving the whole fanbase a kick in the teeth.
We were dire in the 1st half, and snuck a win against one of the poorest sides in the division. Any 3 points away from home is a good 3 points, but we nicked that one and he comes out like we've just played Wolves off the park and beaten them.
Be humble for once, rise above it as a professional. I can understand wanting to stick one to those doubting him - but it's not good enough and not befitting of the manager of ITFC.
I personally thought it was a disgrace, and any good will he could have clawed back has gone the other way.
Not taking good chances when we get them, and when we fall behind can't break teams down when they are strangling the life out of the game.
Every game is on a knife edge and feels dependent on who scores first.
People have been saying it a while, but we do really need to try and nail down a formation and style, and preferred starting XI because this constant change doesn't seem to be helping the players and leads to poor performances from players like Spence who are asked to play a different role every week - the lop sided ness of the formation meant everyone had to be on their game and McG didn't look fit enough to play, let alone 90 minutes.
Very few positives yesterday, I thought Webster looked comfy on the left and thought Nydam put in a really mature performance.
“I won't allow anything of a blue colour in my house or car. I have never bought any blue-coloured clothes nor let the missus buy anything blue. I feel sick when forced to see those disgusting, blue shirts and dislike teams such as Everton because of their colour. That's how much I loathe Ipswich.”
From Harry's notes - this must be bloody difficult for this guy! Yellow (and green) are, objectively, pretty unpopular colours - avoiding them is pretty easy. But blue - ITFC fan or not - is a great colour.
