Steve McClaren that is. So we've failed to live up to expectations and not got promoted but 85% of teams don't live up to expectations. McClaren took a boring mid table team and completely transformed them in to title chasers, playing exciting all out attacking football. He breathed new life into the club with 27,500+ turning out at the Ipro Stadium rain or shine and new investors knocking on the boards door. If he goes to the Toon for £2m they've got a bargain as long as Ashley backs him. Where that leaves The Rams is another story. For me he should stay.
