      I dont think we'll see Mclaren back for a while. He's now had a seriously poor run of non-achievements. Not that he'll care.

      Absolutely ZERO chance of this. His stock has fallen through the floor now, too much abject failure on his CV. He's destined for nothing more than a Sky Sports studio for the foreseeable.

      I envy you. Worst England manager ever, and the only time I wanted England to lose a game of football (I reasoned that if we lost against Israel, we might be able to get someone else in and qualify).

      Edited for you

      On the subject of payoffs, do clubs actually pay up the remainder of contracts in full? If that is the case, then a) that's crazy and b) I bet there are LOADS of managers who basically try and get sacked. I thought of this when I watched McLaren's interview after the game last Friday night (admittedly after he'd gone, so with the benefit of hindsight), but it did make me think that SO many of these guys are onto a winner – if the pay-off situation is true. No wonder (again, if that IS the case) there are so many one-time managers – one bumper pay day and they're set for life, or a good few years at least!

      You might be right but I can't help thinking that Derby's mess goes a lot deeper than McClaren and that he is only partly to blame. He joined in October 2016, so wasn't responsible for building a squad full of Billy Big Bollox front players. In fact, he was the only manager who got anything out of Tom Ince. Where he seems to fail (wherever he goes) is his lack of attention to defending - even at Boro where they got to a European final and made Wembley appearances, his sides constantly leaked goals. With a defence, they could have been more like the title winning Blackburn Rovers side. And this season, Derby have conceded more goals from set pieces than anyone in the division. Says it all really.

      I don't think he's a really bad coach though. He won the title in Holland with a middling club and his record at Middlesbrough stands up as does his record at Derby first time round. He's also honest and decent, so Derby this time round was probably never going to work until he was able to clear the decks of mercenaries and players who have no idea about what being in a squad should mean (I wouldn't want a single one of their players here).

      Jimmy Krankie at Boro was always a tosser. He threw his toys out of the pram when it all started to go wrong, and he's still whinging now. Oh hope he fcks off and is never seen in England again.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      I do agree with you that Derby wasn't his fault. He inherited a dressing room full of egos and a squad full of expensive, overrated misfits, so anyone walking into that was always going to struggle - especially with a bellcheese chairman who has all the patience and restraint of a starving dog in front of a bowl of pork scratchings.

      And you rightly highlight their defensive frailties, which we saw in ALL their glory the other night. Starting at our place with 4 strikers (Ince, Vydra, Nugent, Bent) was just BONKERS of the highest order, especially when they were missing both their 1st choice CB's. And Will Hughes on the bench ? Well thank you very much Schteve. By the look of it, they'd packed up playing for him anyway (as they've pretty much been doing for everyone in the dugout over the last 18 months or so).

      So no, the problems do indeed run far, far deeper than the managers office at Pride Park, or whatever its called these days. But as a manager, I still think he's a busted flush and would be flabbergasted to see him get a PL job again.

      He didn't **** up in Holland (won the league) and has won 64 of his 124 games in charge of Derby which is a win percentage of 51%

      Chris Hughtons win percentage at Brighton is 49.57%

      Just saying....
