Strong message to critics
Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy has delivered a strong message, filled with expletives, to those who criticise him, saying he’d prefer it if they did so to his face. The former Wolves boss is somewhat known for his forthright comments.
McCarthy takes issue with the fact that some supporters get behind him one week and then turn against him the very next. “Up and down like a bloody fiddler’s elbow. I’m alright one week but I’m not the next.”
His Ipswich side drew 1-1 with Norwich on Sunday, leaving the Tractor Boys 13th in the Championship.

Following Sunday’s derby match, McCarthy praised his side’s performance against a ‘strong’ Norwich team. Jonas Knudsen’s strike on the cusp of half time handed Ipswich a point. Cameron Jerome had originally given the visitors the lead.
