Chances are, the Mick McCarthy out bandwagon will no doubt pick up some more momentum following the game against Manchester City.
When you are without a win in seven Premier League games, which includes five consecutive defeats, the last team you want to face is a side that is capable of putting six past Manchester United.
But that’s what we have tomorrow, a Manchester City side who are top of the Premier League, unbeaten all season, winning every game at home, scoring on average three goals per game and only conceding once at home all season.
It’s one of those games that realistically, we just write off.
We shouldn’t expect anything from the game and matches against those around us are the ones which we should be aiming for points.
But our Mick believes that City could be ripe for the picking!
“We play in a different league to them and most of the teams do, but we will give it a go and you never know. I`m not going there to admire them – I want to take something off them and will do my level best to do it.” McCarthy told the Express & Star.
Is it just wishful thinking? He can hardly turn around and say that he expects a thumping even if he does.
But right now I’d take one of those valiant defeats that we were hoping to avoid this season.
You can pick up confidence and momentum from a good performance, even if it does result in a defeat, so I think Mick has the right attitude going into the game.
Lets hope the players can impress and not fear a good hiding.
