'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McCarthy's A Pussy Cat Says Martin

Lee Martin has revealed manager Mick McCarthy is getting rid of the fear factor which had enveloped Ipswich undr Roy Keane and Paul Jewell.

Martin told the Daily Star: "He has got it in him to be tough but he has got that relaxed approach saying 'don`t force it, play your football and it will come`.

"The gaffer is not stupid, he has come in, assessed it, seen the fear factor and knows confidence is low, so if you keep battering the lads they are not going to respond. He has lifted them.

"He is a reasonable manager. He has come and lifted the place and told us to believe.

"He has given us an air of confidence, which we were lacking before and, and OK we have had some freak results against us, but we have picked up seven points, and hopefully this will stop the rot and be the start of a good run."

McCarthy has also instilled more discipline, insisting the players wear suits on match day.
