This season has not been kind to Steve McClaren, he torched England’s European Championship campaign, cringed at various times beneath a brolly or alone in the toilet, and has been ripped apart with ego-tearing glee by the press. Things are picking up though…
Not only has McClaren somehow managed to secure a gig as a TV pundit for the Euro Championships – which is as crazy an appointment as Tony Blair becoming Middle East peace envoy – but he is now in the running for the Blackburn job. In fact, when McClaren showed up with his balding ginger pate and his ridiculously bleached tombstones, he pulled out all the stops and actually managed to impress as an interviewee according to The Sun.
An unnamed source (Mr B.Ollox perhaps?) is reported to have said:
“Steve pulled out all the stops when he met with Rovers and they were all very impressed.
“He doesn’t want to be too over-confident but he thinks it went very well.” (The Sun)
Whoa there! Would Blackburn fans really want Steve McClaren stinking it up at Ewood Park?
