How does Steve McClaren still get work? - originally posted on

Steve McClaren has been appointed as Derby County manager on a two and a half year deal.

For many, Steve McClaren is a figure of immense mirth, a perpetual punchline, a running joke. Some even conspiratorially suggest that he was created in a test tube by Sven Goran Eriksson in the early autumn of 2004, composed by the combination of the inscrutable contents of frothing conical flasks to create a successor who would flatter the Swede's legacy.

Managerial contracts are a complete waste of time!

Is Sven Serious When Suggesting Wenger To Be Next England Manager?

In the wake of Sven Goran Eriksson's opinion that Arsene Wenger would be the ideal next England manager, bookmakers have installed the Frenchman at odds of 25/1 to take over from Fabio Capello when the Italian's contract is up next year.

Needless to say, few people will be in agreement with Eriksson's opinion and anyone with a brain cell will not really believe this will actually happen, moreover there is no way that the Arsenal boss would even consider taking the post (fortunately for England fans).
