Mick McCarthy quotes
"I thought I had seen it all when it comes to the fickleness of football folk. Then I heard Spurs fans singing 'There's only one Alan Sugar'."
"Carl Robinson has got a busted hooter and Daz Carter has got blurred vision. They were having a chat and thought they were in the crowd."
"I was feeling as sick as the proverbial donkey."
"Anyone who uses the word 'quintisentially' in a half time talk is talking crap."
"I think one or two of our legs got a bit leg weary."
"No regrets. None at all. My only regret is that we went out on penalties. That's my only regret. But no, no regrets."
"The other day in training he wanted to join in an 11 a side game and I had to say 'Kyler, no!', and he went away and kicked three or four balls all over the pitch. Then he was made to go and fetch them because he'd thrown his toys out of the pram." - On Kevin Kyle.
"Every single one of the players has been slapped around the head but they keep coming back for more."
"At the moment we've got 16 first team players. My initials stand for Mick McCarthy, not Merlin the Magician."
"We've got the drug testers here today. They shouldn't be going to see the players. They should go to see the officials instead."
"It's a great

and good football and creating chances. Of course, the one cruel bit is
in the 92nd minute when we conceded."
"What I learned from Jack [Charlton] - ensure that you're all inside the
tent p**sing out and get rid of any fellow who's outside the tent
p**sing in." - On the much publicised spat with Roy Keane at the 2002
