Mick McCarthy's relationship with the Ipswich Town fans has turned sour this season. After four-year-and-a-half years at the club, supporters appear tired of the stability established by McCarthy.

There has been just one appearance in the playoffs during his reign and one never looked likely this season. Chants of 'Mick McCarthy, your football is shite' were heard during Ipswich's 1-1 draw with Birmingham on Saturday.

On Tuesday night, as McCarthy's side beat Wigan 3-0, moving nine points clear of the relegation zone, the atmosphere at Portman Road was somewhat more favourable.

Asked about the improved mood at the ground, McCarthy, quoted by the East Anglian Daily Times, was in no doubt about what had created it.

Win games and they will come and they will cheer and they’ll be happy, that’s all it is.

Free pies, free pints, fucking half price, cushions on the seats, happy clappy, it’s all bollocks.

You win games and people like you, and that’s all what it is. I don’t know, maybe I’ve gone a bit too far, even winning games might not turn a few of them around, but I’ve always found when you win games it’s a really good recipe for a happy place and a good place.

When you’re winning games it’s a piece of cake, the job. It’s when you’re not winning, I think that’s how you’re judged – and how you judge yourself probably because it’s tough, let me tell you.
