Carlos Edwards: Enjoying his time under McCarthy

The Trinidad and Tobago international had gone almost two years without a goal before McCarthy took charge at Portman Road, but has since fired the Blues to wins against Bolton and Derby before finding the scoresheet for the third time in eight games in the 3-1 victory against Birmingham on Saturday.

That result ensured McCarthy's men would be a Championship side again next season and Edwards has thanked the former Republic of Ireland boss for the turnaround in the club's fortunes.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "Words cannot explain how beneficial he has been for me.

"I had the honour of playing for him at Wolves during a short loan spell and he knew what I was capable of when he came here.

"Maybe I was a bit off the boil when he arrived and I have got to thank the manager for keeping faith in me. Along with Terry Connor, he has been on my case to try and be more positive.

"When they have belief in you, it gives you a bigger incentive."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
