Profile

Ipswich Town have been managed by Mick McCarthy since November 2012, making him one of the longest-serving gaffers in the Football League.

Since arriving at Ipswich McCarthy originally gradually set about transforming their fortunes; steering the Tractor Boys clear of the relegation zone and leading them to a respectable 14th place finish in his first campaign in charge, followed by a 9th place standing in 2013/14, then the play-offs in 2014/15, although they missed out on a top-6 finish last term, then suffered a disappointing 2016/17 season, finishing 16th, with McCarthy coming under pressure.

Ipswich famously qualified for the UEFA Cup in 2001 after a fantastic season in which they finished fifth in the Premier League. However, those days now seem a long time ago, with the club stuck in the Championship since 2002.
