Boro Set to Win Waghorn Race as Bid Accepted
at 10:35:26

Considering what other players have gone for we’re underselling him. Accrington can hold on to their striker, asking for an ‘unreasonable’ fee and rightly so yet we’re selling for a lesser price???

McCarthy Delighted With Result and Performance But Also Relieved
at 23:22:41

Obviously as a player the trick to get in Mick's good books is... do nothing. Don't put in a challenge because you might give away a free kick. Put stand on the centre circle and point and you're Man of the Match.

McCarthy: Players "Irked" By Douglas Abuse
at 16:06:09

Mick's creating a them and us mentality at the club - unfortunately we're the 'them' to their 'us'. He says that he needs the fans onside then berates and goads at every opportunity.

McCarthy: Fans a Massive Part When We're Winning But Can Also Be a Massive Part of Us Getting Beat
at 15:58:31

But all the fans need is acknowledgement Mick.

"I'm not perfect, I've made mistakes this season and maybe I haven't learned from them quick enough. I'm sorry for that. Me, the staff the players, we have to take responsibility for the season. We can't keep pointing the finger at the fans and expect them to suddenly find positivity and hope from nowhere - we have drained that way and for that I'm sorry, I truely am sorry. But we have seven cup finals left and I hope the fans can find it in their hearts to forgive us for the mistakes of the season and to get behind us through good and bad for the rest of the campaign. But if they can't without seeing more then I understand we have to give them more and we'll try; we have been poor this season but we've never stopped trying."

I bet the response from the terraces would be slightly different if he said something like that.

McCarthy: We've Got to Play Better Than That
at 23:08:23

"We've got to play better than that" and he's happy with a dour 0-0 against a side in freefall.

That's why we pay him ££££ in wages, folks.

McCarthy: Bish Has to Get Back to 2014/15 Form
at 18:39:27

That's a clip around the ear from Mick. Obviously he feels Bishop isn't quite firing on all cylinders - maybe he wasn't overrly impressed with his effort in the under 23s either? But it's a redeemable warning; keep working and it'll come together.

Town Hopeful on Kightly as Best in Talks
at 20:32:15

Kightly might be a decent signing though don't we predominantly need a left midfielder rather than right? Not that having back up for Ward is a bad thing.

If we replace Murphy with Best... it'd be ruddy hilarious to everyone but us.

Hyam Contract Talks Break Down
at 22:25:43

Daleyitfc - Rotherham were happy enough with him; they're at our level.

mispeltyouth - I don't think it's helped having Skuse here as he plays a similar role to Hyam. At first we tried to get Hyam to play a different role then accepted boring the fans to death to get both of them in the team.

Hyam Contract Talks Break Down
at 21:56:19

So are we in talks now or are we going to wait in the summer?

"TWTD understands that talks with midfielder Luke Hyam regarding his new Town contract have broken down."

"Mick McCarthy reiterated that Town will be exercising on Thursday when he said new contracts for Hyam... would be looked at in the summer."

There's no point condemning either the club or player regarding this; we don't know the ins and outs. I'd be happy to see him sign but I know I'm very much in the minority on that one.

McCarthy Won't Sub Players Singled Out for Abuse
at 11:13:49

So is that why we subbed our highest playing scorer and two players who could make something happen over someone who is going backwards? To stick two fingers up at the fans?

I think that sums Mick up completely to be honest.

Murphy Out But Bishop and McGoldrick on Bench
at 14:30:20

Think Mick will change things slightly as he blamed fatigue after the defeat to Rotherham - I think Bru will be in for Pringle and Hyam for Douglas.

Wouldn't mind seeing a 4-3-3 with Skuse, Bru and Pringle in the middle (not that Hyam's done much wrong on his return excluding the Rotherham match where everyone was awful) with the alternative being a 4-4-2 with Feeney - Skuse - Bru - Pringle across midfield with Pitman and Sears up top but... neither will happen.

McCarthy Accepts "Big Part of the Responsibility" for Defeat
at 18:25:55

Sorry Mick but that's a load of rubbish - you've changed winning teams before without blinking. Tuesday's performance was abysmal so how can you sit there and say it was good??? We got a break with the penalty and managed to hold on. If we hadn't got that penalty... You are allowed to drop one of Skuse, Hyam and Douglas you know??? Even Skuse and Hyam playing alongside Bru would have been an improvement, with Feeney playing up front in the place of Pitman, who can only do it from the bench.
