'Go And Ruin Barnsley' - Ipswich Fans Hope McCarthy Rumours Are True

'Go And Ruin Barnsley' - Ipswich Fans Hope McCarthy Rumours Are True

With Paul Heckingbottom becoming the new manager of Leeds United earlier in the week, there is a managerial vacancy at Barnsley.

One manager being subtly mooted as a potential candidate is Barnsley-born Ipswich Town manager, Mick McCarthy.

Having started his playing career with the club, totting up over 300 appearances before a move to Manchester City, there may certainly be some intrigue on McCarthy's part.

In his sixth year with Ipswich Town, it has become apparent recently that neither he nor the fans perhaps have the same appetite for their shared journey anymore.

Although there are candidates more favourable for the appointment than McCarthy himself, a certain portion of Ipswich's fan base are not shy about declaring what they wish to happen.

Barnsley currently sit perilously close to the relegation zone in the Championship, with McCarthy's Ipswich looking a distant shot for the playoffs, sitting comfortably in mid-table.

It is no surprise then that with the departure of Heckingbottom, Barnsley fans would be keen to see McCarthy "come home."

Although it is likely that one way or another McCarthy will be on the move sooner rather than later, it goes without saying that many clubs across England would be equally keen to acquire his services.
