I would have him back in a heart beat no matter how stuck up he was.

Our most successful manager in my life time.

The fact he hasn't done anything of worth in 13 years save a spell in Holland doesnt put you off?

He's been saving himself.  :cheese:

 

I would have Our Jackie back any bugger in place of Pulis, and he's a bloody Geordie.   :oops:

The lustre has well and truly come off McClaren's reputation in recent years after some significant failures at home and abroad. Even with us, his overall performance was questionable. He got us to Europe, true, but with a huge wage bill and playing some pretty dour football in many league games. The Basel and Steaua matches have totally eclipsed all those dull PL games where nothing much happened.

 

For what it's worth, I think even Pulis would have us scoring goals with players like Hasselbaink, Yakubu and Viduka in the squad, as opposed to Hugill and Gestede.

Bad comparison though isn't it? Our Carling cup winning / prem / European team against our championship team? - tell you what though, Assombalonga, Bamford and Braithwaite wouldnt be a bad three?

I Wonder if Pulis could get goals out of them?

After all, their other coaches have.

It's not a fair comparison, but the original question was would anyone take McClaren back. And since that question is based in part on his achievements here back in the day, I wanted to make the point that he achieved good things with a superb team. If he came back, he'd be working with comparative dross like Hugill and Flint, and I see no evidence McClaren is skilled at making poor players into good ones.

Good point well made. I concur !

    • If the manager talks about bad attitude and getting rid, then that destroys any bargaining position and lowers any potential fee further. It's amateur to do that, not to talk up a player. Additionally if we can't offload and needed him to be available for the team then best to have him onside in that eventuality. Remember the euro transfer window is open much longer than the championship one, so we could have potentially had him on the books for the first few weeks of the season and still be paying him during that time.
    • 5 million in, toxic attitude out and 50k off the wage bill.. it’s a no brainer. Don’t really like Woody setting himself up to fail tho.. Defending MB and saying he wants to stay.. why do it? And why is the press officer letting those quotes go out? It’s so amateur.
    • He's the biggest shareholder in Barnsley so he couldn't actually buy us without selling his stake in them.  I like your out of the box thinking though, as always 👍
    • It's probably worth remembering that we signed Braithwaite as a Championship club.  I think jamesp is about right in what he has said really.  We signed a player for £9m and whatever he gets paid per week as a Championship club.  You can talk about parachute payments if you like but it doesn't change the fact that we're taking a hit on him after taking a hit on Flint.  It's the right thing to do but it's still *** poor on the part of the club.
