When your side has just beaten Leeds United, and moved within four points of the play-off places, you have good reason to be a bit cheerful.
Rarely requiring much encouragement to provide a post-match conference with a bit of that Mick McCarthy magic, the Ipswich Town boss was feeling particularly defiant after this afternoon's 1-0 win.
Although Leeds had been looking the dominant side before Eunan O'Kane's sending off late in the first half, McCarthy's men pulled through and nicked the win with a wonderful solo-effort from Bersant Celina.
Never one to entertain the media when he feels it has wronged him in some way or another, McCarthy chose this happy occasion to settle scores with "some people"
Recalling their earlier visit to Elland Road this season when McCarthy felt that his side were unlucky to leave with a 1-1 draw ("we'd murdered them, we should have won"), the former Ireland manager remembered one particular question from a journalist:
It was something like, 'some people might think that's two points dropped.'
And I said, 'some people can fuck off.'
With the press pushing McCarthy for a reason why Ipswich's Bartosz Białkowski hadn't played against Leeds United today, the underlying suggestion was that the Polish 'keeper was absent for reasons that may not have been directly linked to the reported injury.
To this, McCarthy felt such people can "similarly" fuck off.
Filling the press room with a laughter that is so often the case when McCarthy sits down to talk football, you can enjoy his post-match interview below.
