Mick McCarthy became Ipswich Town manager on the 1st November 2012 with the Tractor Boys rock bottom of the Championship, since then he leaded the club to a mid-table finish in 2013, and in this campaign has seen his side narrowly miss out on the Play-Offs.
Yet some fans are not happy with the progress being made by the club and are desperate to see Ipswich return to the Premier League for the first time since 2002.
With one game to go in the 2013/14 campaign, Ipswich have nothing to play for but pride after seeing their Play-off dream crushed at the hands of second place Burnley.
That result means Ipswich will be spending their 13th consecutive season in the second tier of English football, but is McCarthy the man to end that run?
The game on Saturday at Turf Moor frustrated many Town fans as a must win game saw the team play with little fight as they struggled to test the Burnley defence.
At times, the game looked like the typical end of season game where neither team had anything to play for, despite everything being on the line for Ipswich.
This season Ipswich are looking for their highest finish since the 2007/08 season when they finished 8th under Jim Magilton.
Being in the mix for the Play-offs is likely to attract better players during the Summer, and in McCarthy’s first full season in charge of the Suffolk side, a top ten finish must be seen as a success.
