If McClaren was truly sorry for having failed he wouldn't be taking the £2.5m payout that he does NOT deserve.
I didn't see one note of genuine disappointment in his post match interview and I defy anyone to find an English person who was in favour of McClaren being the England manager even before last night's debarcle.
I couldn't agree more, that's why he didn't resign, he wouldn't have been entitled to the payout. But i suppose it's a little understandable, I mean, he's never going to get another job in football surely?!
Just saw his press conference.
He avoided all meaningful questions by replying "That's not for today"...well, what was the point of the press conference then you gimp?
Sums him up... complete 'Yes man' - if i'd just been sacked for being a failure i'd sure as hell be saying WHY i failed but he avoided that by just saying nice things about everyone, presumably to help him with his next job.
I'd love to know his real opinion why high profile players consistantly underperform for their country... although i think i know the answer to that already
He did stick the penalty away though, something most english players are incapable of.
I think the Croatian coach was excellent in the after match interview, far more insight on our pitiful performance than McCLaren provided. He referred to the "Negative Pressure" we always seem to play under, which summed it up nicely, especially when taking penalties. We have a "**** I'm gonna miss" attitude rather than "I'm about to score another international goal" which the continentals seem to enjoy.
Also Becks was surprisingly insightful & eloquent.
