Mick McCarthy may not be the greatest ever manger like Alex Ferguson but Ryan Tunnicliffe, who has played for both, admits Town would miss their boss massively.

Speaking to the national press, Tunnicliffe, who is on loan from Manchester United, admits the talk of MM going to Ireland again has had Portman Road worried.

“It would be a big blow if he were to go. The fans, and the players especially, don`t want him to go,” said Tunnicliffe, who is on loan from Old Trafford.

“I have travelled in a few squads with Sir Alex Ferguson so it is hard to compare the manager here with the greatest ever manager, but they both have the same fiery temperament and determination to win.”

The 20-year-old midfielder, who helped set up Luke Chambers` goal, which came in between a double from David McGoldrick after Albert Adomah had put Boro on front, underlined McCarthy`s importance.

He said: “Mick has been calm and just pointed out where we could do better.

“It was like at half-time, we needed him to give us pointers, how to pick it up second half and he did that in a steady way.

“He is not one to shout and bawl and was just focusing on what we were doing well – no hairdriers.”

Tunnicliffe has looked good for us since signing and buttering up the boss is no bad thing.
