Mick McCarthy: Honest assessment

Mick McCarthy: Honest assessment

A late Danny Rose goal gave the visitors a point after Luke Chambers had opened the scoring, and McCarthy had no hard-luck story afterwards.

He said: "We didn't defend properly but they deserved a point. Not that I'm happy about it. In fact, I'm very unhappy about it but they deserved it.

"They were the better side and took the game to us. They didn't sit back and try and catch us on the counter.

"We would have nicked it if we'd taken the three points and I'd have been delighted. If you're the inferior side and you get in front, you've got to grind it out. That's how you progress.

"We'll take the point, put it in our pocket and keep it and make sure we keep picking up more."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
