85. But I am Mick McCarthy

Posted on: July 12th, 2009 by Colonel Crabtree-Smythe 1 Comment

This was the first time that Sage met Mick McCarthy. A ‘mans man’ as he called himself In some ways I felt a little sorry for Mick. mick mccarthy cartoonLet me explain and then I am sure you will understand my positive emotional response to the man Mcarthy. It was to do with his upbringing and the fact that his Mother called him Mickey Wicky. That in itself is not the real reason for Mick’s low self esteem. It was more to do with the fact that she made him put Mickey Wicky on his school books. This did not go down well with his school friends. It was an embarrassment that would stay with him for the rest of his life and Sage (the swine that he is) did not pick up on this. Poor Mick I say…

But there appears to be an almighty endorsement for the actions of my friend Mick McCarthy in the questionable actions of that swine of a man Roy Keane – the ex Sunderland Manager. It seems that the adoption of Mick’s training methods has gone to pot for Roy. In other words; Roy has regarded them as useless. The River dancing has fallen by the wayside. As my friend Anton Dubec of Come Dancing said (and I quote):

“The team’s flicks kicks have gone to the dog -and the training was Roy’s responsibility entirely because he neglected the training”.

When asked what he felt about the situation Mick McCarthy added “Roy should have been there for the flicks and kicks and I am not surprised that the whole training regime has fallen apart and that Roy has run for the hills again. I do hope that Sunderland ask me back and you won’t see me neglecting the flicks and kicks. I will even get Michael Flatly back on board… Because I am Mick McCarthy!”

So you see Sage. All that bad attitude towards Mickey Wicky has been farcical… get your own house in order before you throw stone at others. For, as far as I can see, Mick is a sensitive soul and should be treated as such.
