Ipswich to concentrate on relegation after FA Cup humiliation

Mick McCarthy

Gutless Ipswich Town can now concentrate on relegation after being embarrassingly dumped out of the FA Cup by non-league Lincoln City.

Mick McCarthy’s team were spineless and could not string two passes together all night, allowing an overweight Lincoln bloke with a comb-over to bully and outplay them on the pitch.

The shocking 1-0 defeat – widely predicted by this newspaper – means Ipswich can now concentrate on getting relegated from the Championship for the first time in their record-breaking 15-year stay.

Last weekend’s shock win against Blackburn put an unlikely ten points between Ipswich and the drop zone – but now the distraction of the Cup is over, that gap will soon close.

A member of McCarthy’s backroom staff said: “Mick hates the Cup – it gets in the way of insipid League performances inspired by the manager being unable to motivate the team. Now we can concentrate properly on our relegation battle.”

Fans are furious. One said: “We played 5-3-2 against a non-league team, and two of the midfielders were defensive, meaning 7 of our 10 outfield players would not recognise an attacking move if it slapped them in the face.

“We have now lost in the 3rd round every year since 2010 – so at least we’re showing some consistency.”
