Many British football followers make fun of Mick McCarthy on Twitter these days. Much of the banter is in good taste.
To be fair, there are those who remember how highly he was once rated and still appreciate his attributes to improve unfancied clubs.
You can read the mix bag of comments on social media here, before and after McCarthy was linked with the Kaizer Chiefs job. You can also notice he is still a wanted man in England and a highly respected figure.
So, how would the rest of the Chiefs fans feel about him replacing Steve Komphela?
