Mick McCarthy: Offered a modest assessment of latest victory

The Suffolk side have now taken 16 points from a possible 24 since McCarthy took the reins, and were on the mark again through DJ Campbell's double and a Daryl Murphy third.

McCarthy said: "We've got Leeds away next weekend and then a really tough Christmas period.

"Everyone is starting to talk differently, rather than about staying up, but I'm just happy with the points today.

"I was delighted and thought we deserved it, although I wouldn't say it was easy. The lads are knackered and really put a shift in. Teams only play as much as we allow them to and I thought our boys were terrific in stopping Millwall play."

On the future of Campbell, who has become a fans' favourite since joining on loan from QPR, McCarthy added: "I left (QPR boss) Harry Redknapp a message the other day but I think he's got plenty on at the moment.

"We can't do anything about it anyway. It'll run its course but other people will be interested because he's scoring goals.

"He wants to sign for a club permanently and we'd like to take him, but there will be mitigating circumstances."

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.
