I mailed an old shipmate, who is a devoted Sunderland fan. I asked him what he thought of Mick Mccarthy. And this was his reply:
Mick was and still is loved by our fans mate. Great manager at spotting young unknown talent and giving them a chance to enhance the first team. He was never given enough funds after he got us to the premiership. Football we played the season we got promoted was great mate. Always rated him. Would have had him back here in a heartbeat. Hope he does well mate. A very honest passionate fella and top man with the fans. Don't think you find and Mackem that would have a bad word for him.

A good write up i thought.

I read on Wolves forum and I read that he would had em easily top 8 if he had the same backing as Nuno.

Good to see a bit of positivity about Mick. I’ve got my fingers crossed but I’ve got a feeling that the club may have made a wise move here. It’ll be interesting to see how we line up on Wednesday.

The most amazing thing on there is that Mick is younger than Madonna!:hehe:
From that site

He's an okay Championship manager, can make a team solid, he's basically the bloke you give a ring if Warnock's unavailable.

I agree. Was a bit underwhelmed yesterday but have warmed to the decision. Appointing him until the end of the season seems a wise move. Gives a good opportunity to see if he's a good fit. Can't see us pushing forvtge play offs but not stressing about relegation any more

I think the 6 month contract is for budget reasons not football. He will be given an extension if he gets us near the top 6. We are in the Warnock cycle again. I just hope we continue down the young and potential signing route.
