Steve McClaren

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Not seen this anywhere else, according to the BBC Dundee United talking to Steve McClaren about the manager's job, as well as Malky Mackay, Austin McPhee and Jon Daly.

 

McClaren definitely has something, as he is the only manager ever to win anything at Boro, also getting them to a Euro final. He also took FC Twente to their first ever title, which is no mean feat against teams like Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord.

 

I remember being quite excited when he was briefly mentioned for Hearts after Cathro left, but as time has gone on I've realised that he probably needs to spend money.

 

He had top players at Boro, such as Southgate, Viduka, Zenden, Mendietta and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. Looking back it's now hard to believe that I saw players like that in Boro shirts. Despite such playing resources Boro were still inconsistent in the League, briefly flirting with relegation during their UEFA final season.

 

I don't know anything about the resources at Twente, but I think McClaren has been pretty mediocre since then. He would probably still command a decent wage, so I reckon he could be an expensive flop if United were to do a deal with him.

No way McLaren will take it. Just keeping his name mentioned.

 

They’ll probably opt for the Jim Davidson tribute act. Don’t really fancy the other options on that list either... Jesus.

McClaren is a utter rubbish manager pure shit it would be funny if he got it as they will be back down :rifle:

Not a chance he'll take it. Much like with us, he's just using them to get in the media for any suitors down south. 

 

When that shit happens I'd love the club to just come out and rubbish it immediately. 'We have no interest in him'.

He must be really toiling if he is considering managing Dun Utd they have never been anything other than a small team, not taking anything at all away from what the did under Mclean but they are tiddlers when you look at his previous appointments... almost at a junior level to be honest . Good luck though all the same nothing against you.

Usually i would just say BULLSHIT

But the Utd owners have a bit of money and probably feel a bit angry about Neilson leaving. 

It could be a stick up the middle finger job.

Steve McLaren going to Utd would be hilarious. 

 

The man has turned into a managerial mercenary, preferring to hoover up compensation packages rather than wins. He was good in his first 3 club jobs, but he had a bit of money behind him at Middlesbrough, Wolfsburg and Twente.

 

5 year deal on mega bucks, punted back to the championship, sacked after 10 games and Utd to die please.

Wonder if there'll be a clause in his contract about Chanpionship football.

 

Would be funny to see him hired and fired before actually having a game in charge.

No way he’ll take it in their financial state. They are saying they are finished if they don’t get promotion. Whilst  they likely will it’s still a risk as nobody knows how it will go on Wednesday and (as likely) the possibility there could be a delay etc.

as much fantasy as it was when we were linked with Claudio Rannieri (and ended up with Rix)

complete shite by the roaster press as per

Yeah, a wee bit of due diligence and he'll run a mile or should. Steven Pressley was very plain about his thoughts on the current D Utd situation, and he has a bit of an inside line into what's happening there.

No idea why he’d leave a good gig at Wolves to be an assistant manager at a skint championship side.

That says everything about Twitter. 🤣 If, under SPFL rules, the EPL stopped today Cathro is looking at coaching at a CL club.

Really? I can’t see Cathro leaving his post as 1st team coach at Wolves. They are still pressing for a Champions League or Europa League place.

Why would Cathro leave a job where he’s very successful at a much higher level, to go to Dundee United?

In terms of Cathro, could Dundee Utd even afford him? But then again I don’t imagine McClaren would come cheap either. Sounds like their owners risky buy success at any cost policy is continuing.

Malky MacKay would be a better manager for them regardless of his views. Shteve McLaren is a has been who would take a job in a war torn hell hole just to stay relevant and top up his pension.

Have to say McLaren never really sounds like he knows what the hell he’s on about when on any Sky analysis show. 
I’d think Dundee Hibs are taking a very expensive gamble here.
