MM does not stand for "Merlin the Magician"
On the BBC website, Mick McCarthy is quoted as saying:
"At the moment we've only got 16 first-team players and my initials stand for Mick McCarthy, not Merlin the Magician. It's important for the fans to believe. We do not want fans turning up expecting to see their team beaten and we certainly don't want the players expecting to be beaten. But if expectations are not as high as they have been in the recent past, that may help the players."So we have just enough players to field 11 on the pitch and 5 on the bench but we shouldn't expect to be beaten. Actually, slaughtered was the word I was thinking of. Plymouth must be licking their lips in anticipation of the 3 points they'll be pocketing next week when the season starts.
