Will Roy Keane and Mick McCarthy fight for Lee Carsley?

The Mirror writes today that Wolves and Ipswich are interested in the 35-year-old midfielder Lee Carsley from Birmingham. Both of them would know what they get, because Carsley is a battle hardened Irish international.

He came to Birmingham last season and was voted Player’s Player Of The Season and is a defensive midfielder and the Mirror says that he is available for £1 million and that the Birmingham manager have said that he can go in January.

Wolves are in need of a defensive midfielder in my opinion. This could be a cheap and fruitful way of strengthening our team with a player who knows what it’s all about and could be sort of daddy to our young players. He would probably be a good influence in the dressing room as well.

But is the rumour true? It could be that Mirror knows that he will be available in the window and then they fabric the thing about who that could be interested in the player and adds the ‘Irish connection’ of course.

But I think that they could be right. Both Keane and McCarthy could be interested. But there is also a chance that Mick will pass on this one. Adding such a strong personality to the team could be a disturbance to the harmony as well. But McCarthy knows more about that personality than me. And what a treat for all the rags to write about, eh?! 😆

  1. One would hope that Mccarthy passes on Carsley, an aging player unable to hold a spot in the Birmingham team, and the ‘mongral’ who almost finished big Chris’s football career in the Championship last season.

    A definite NO, on this one
