McCarthy may make loan moves

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy remains hopeful of adding to his ranks before the end of the transfer window but admits loan signings are now looking more likely than permanent deals.

McCarthy has so far brought in Frank Nouble on an 18-month contract from Wolves as well as loanees David McGoldrick, Aaron Mclean and Patrick Kisnorbo - although McGoldrick comes with a view to a summer move.

The Irish boss is keen to do more business before January 31 but, with no deals on the immediate horizon, he accepts it may have to be via the loan market.

"We'd like to get players in before the window closes, permanent ones but we are not having much joy at the moment," he told the club's official website.

"We're looking at loans now more than signings and I know I said that I didn't want to do that but at least if it's window to window, they stay with us until the end of the season.

"There are players out of contract and available on a free. That looks a good gig until you find out what the players are earning at the moment.

"Then you have the fact that you have to take them on to the end of the season. That's fine if it's May 4 but it's not like that, you have to take them up to July 31 (end of contract).

"If you don't sign them after that, it means you are paying them for three months football and three months to sit on the beach. That's just not viable."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
