Steve McClaren lands yet another good job – and the reaction up & down the country is hilarious

Ex-NUFC boss Steve McClaren has sealed his return to English football in the last few moments, managing to land the QPR job despite a string of recent failings both here and abroad.

He’s being described as the luckiest man in football and we’d tend to agree. Just listen to this..

Since 2010, Steve has either resigned or been sacked from no fewer than EIGHT jobs (sorry QPR fans!) and his latest stint in football was a short-lived one in Israel, with him last just 4 months as a ‘coaching consultant’ with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

He’s been out of work ever since (and rightly so really), yet he’s now been handed the job at QPR, promising to bring ‘attractive and attacking’ football to Loftus Road. You know, the sort of style that helped Derby bottle their play off hopes and got us relegated.

It’s a baffling one and another reminder that the same old names keep getting jobs, but it has come with some pretty priceless reactions from fans (and journalists) up and down the country:

  1. Another dismal appointment by TF, he knows how to wreck a club and give the fans a real view on the managerial disasters at QPR. I give McClaren 6 months and I reckon a few season ticket holders will send their tickets back. One disaster after another, I really hope I’m wrong.


  2. Lets hope it doesn’t rain on match days.

    How the hell as this guy been appointed.

    Thought this supposed to be a progressive appointment
