Whether he likes it nor not, there’s a cloud of history over Mick McCarthy on Wednesday night, where Bringing It All Back Home could be the soundtrack for his start to life as Cardiff City manager.

His first game in charge is against his home-town club, Barnsley.

One of the main tasks for the 61-year-old is to prove that he’s not yesterday’s man, a figure from football’s past who does not belong in the present.
