Taxi for McClaren?

How many of you think that England’s defeat to Russia was the result of Steve McClaren’s tactical ineptitude and an acute inability to motivate his players?

There’s talk of blaming Rooney but as Scott says, you cannot blame Rooney for a refereeing mistake. The fact that Rooney scored an opportunistic goal hid the fact that England were on the defensive, that the midfield partnership came a little unstuck and that Macca’s subs were ridiculous – you don’t bring on workhorses (Downing, Lampard) to save a game.

So – what do you guys think? Will McClaren be fired now, or will he get a stay of execution till the Croatia game (I honestly don’t see him staying on beyond that game, regardless of whether England qualify or not)?

Our friends over at Subside Sports are selling the shirt above – be one of the first to own it.

Why isn't the Arsenal board going on the offensive?
