    Now that the drunken Geordie has been despatched from the mecca of British football with his P45...

    Kevin Blackwell - was No 2 to Warnock at the Lane for years, resurrected a depleted L**ds team getting them to the play-off final, and lost 1 of his first 15 matches in charge at Keilworth Road...

    Good appointment!

    What's McClaren ever done?
    Appointing McClaren would be as bad as the Robson appointment.

    Imagine me going to an interview for a new job and saying... "I failed there"... "I didn't do anything for that Company"... "Oh yeah, and I failed miserably with my last employer as well"...

    Who'd employ someone that has consistently failed to deliver results?

    The mass of poor managers that fail everywhere they go, and still manage to secure lucrative contracts at other clubs amazes me!
    Robson and McClaren are in the midst of that mass...
