It’s quite unbelievable really, but, then again, I shouldn’t really be surprised given how often these washed up managers continue to get jobs. Still, how can a manager struggle so consistently yet continue to be handed second, third and fourth chances?
Since 2010, Steve has either resigned or been sacked from no fewer than EIGHT jobs. A stat that will fill QPR fans with anything but confidence.
His latest stint in football was a ‘coaching consultant’ with Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv – yet he only lasted 4 months in that role and has been out of work ever since. You get the picture.
Steve McClaren set to be appointed as manager of QPR.
How many more failures does this man need on his CV before he doesn't walk into another job like this?

He’s got a bit of history with QPR, having been part of Harry Redknapp’s coaching staff (albeit for just 3 months) back in 2013, however they did finish bottom that season..
Since then he’s bottled Derby’s promotion push in the 2014/15 season, got us relegated the season after, lasted barely 6 months after returning to manage the Rams in 2016 and most recently left his ‘coaching role’ at Maccabi Tel Aviv just 4 months into the job.
I feel for QPR fans. They can look forward to this sort of expertise if and when he is appointed at Loftus Road:
