Mostyn6 Posted December 24, 2013 Share Posted December 24, 2013 IN a thread yesterday, it was suggested that some of the Premier League clubs might now have McClaren on their radar, and could be 'licking their lips' at the chance of poaching him as their manager. I was thinking about this and then trying to work out if I was being deluded, or the things I am seeing and feeling at Derby County are genuine. Am I getting caught up in the good feeling and romance of it all? Or is Steve McClaren 'home'? I looked at some of the teams who could've looked at McClaren. Villa? Norwich? Sunderland? West Brom? West Ham?, then I think that perhaps Steve could have Derby on level terms (or even above) those teams by September! Then you look at the teams in the 'level above', your Newcastle, Swansea, Southampton, Stoke and co, can they offer him something that he cannot earn himself by succeeding here? I cannot see the teams at the true top looking at McClaren, which may be harsh, but he's English and not high-profile enough. What's left? Europe? Well I think his return to Holland burnt him a little. He didn't deserve the sack then and perhaps may think his current security is better. I don't think there are any clubs that would be interested that could possibly steal him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
