Nickname Tractor Boys
Time at Club:
Mick McCarthy has left his position in charge of Ipswich Town. Paul Hurst, George Burley, Chris Coleman, Shefki Kuqi, Paul Cook, and Tony Mowbray have been linked with the club - check out the latest odds below.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Ipswich Town collect wins versus Reading & Barnsley while suffering adverse results at Rotherham United, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest & Brentford. Draws against Exeter City, Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough & Millwall has seen them show mid-table form at best.
