Blues on course to repeat history after explosive start to month
Blues have already picked up more points this month - with the wins over Bolton and Rotherham - than in the whole of October and that has continued the pattern since Mick McCarthy took charge at Portman Road on November 1, 2012.
You have to go back to 2011 and a 1-0 win over Portsmouth for Town’s last victory in October. Since then Blues have played 20 games in that month without success - seven of those were before Mick arrived.
While it’s been a case of ‘dread October’, it’s been fireworks for Blues in November though. In Mick’s first month at the Club, he oversaw three wins and a draw from six games.
Town have gone on to play 17 November games under Mick’s command, winning 11 of them and picking up 36 points from a possible 51.
Saturday’s 5-2 win over Rotherham was Town’s biggest with Mick in charge and has kept Blues firmly in the Play-Off hunt.
