McCarthy Ends Finger-Pointing Mentality At Ipswich

McCarthy Ends Finger-Pointing Mentality At Ipswich

The mick Mccarthy influence is beginning to become evident in the most positive of fashions after coming from behind to beat Bolton.

Mccarthy told the Green Un "There is a good spirit.

"Twas a bit of bitching and back-biting and finger-pointing when I went in.

"It was everyone`s fault and not theirs individually.

"Because if you are conceding goals, it is always the defenders and the keeper`s fault - what about the strikers who should hold it up or the midfielders who should pass the ball to a man in a blue shirt?

"It is a collective, never just one thing. They have bought into that now - there is none of that finger-pointing.

"But that happens when a team starts getting beat - it is nothing to do with Paul (Jewell).

"You can be the best psychologist in the world, but it is not going to change until you change results. That`s what gets you team spirit."

The believe is also spreading to the fans who can see an all-round improvemnt and that should help the atmosphere at FPR.
