McClaren - We Were Rubbish

McClaren - We Were Rubbish

The morning after the night before and Forest fans are still seething after the 5-1 defeat at Burnley. Everyone from the chairman to the tea lady are to blame, but at least the gaffer admitted what most fans were screaming, when he described the performance as rubbish in his post match interview.

McClaren said. 'We were rubbish on and off the ball. We have let the whole club down and all the supporters who travelled to watch us, I feel for the supporters, it is unacceptable.'

This was the heaviest defeat of the season to date and will heap yet more pressure on Steve McClaren. There's no shortage of people for fans to blame for this latest demise in the misfortunes of NFFC, with Nigel Doughty, Mark Arthur, Steve McClaren and even the players themselves coming under fire. However, the one inescapable fact over the past 12 years of troubles that have fallen on this club is that Mr. Doughty has overseen them all.

Bring back Billy, play-off spots 2 seasons in a row. If he'd been given one more season, you never know what would have happened. I just don't think that McC's motivational skills are up to scratch.

Didn't we get beat 5-1 by Burnley when Billy was in charge? I seem to recall them stuffing us in his first season in charge?

This season we will be lucky to beat the drop, might be by one point but we'll beat it. In the mean time each game is two steps forward and one back. Players need time (and there's not much of that) to settle in and learn a diffeent way of playing. Fine and Dandy to bin the manager and he too is settling in. He is under the pump from al sides and its not an easy job....how many armchair managers here would be take it on. Am thinking marthur and co exert more influence on the team than we know. The sum total of their football knowledge....written on the back of postage stamp with a crayon...stuff all! Oh yeah and what manager in their right mind is going to come in and sort this lot out??? Yes SMC didn't ask the right questions at interview, and yes Marthur and Nige didn't volunteer much info either!
