M.Mccarthy Mick McCarthy is out of work and doesn't like it. He has been 26 years a manager and never been without a job for more than nine months at a time.
He left his last club, Ipswich, on April 10 so currently it's five-and-a-half weeks and counting. He would like to stress that, at 59, he is unemployed but definitely not retired.
'I want to work in the Championship or the Premier League,' he said. 'If I could get a Championship job with a chance of getting in the Premier League, that would be great. What gives me inspiration is Roy Hodgson going in at Palace, Warny (Neil Warnock) at Cardiff. Get them organised, hard to beat, know what they are doing. Play good football. Win. I put myself in that bracket.'
