As an Irishman who has witnessed yet another futile qualification campaign and waved goodbye to another manager my interest in Euro 2008 will be passive to say the least.
However, I was wondering about the English fans out their. Obviously, Isreal have given England an excellent chance now to qualify for the tournament. But having read a lot of articles about how McClaren should go, and very few in favour of him staying, what do you think about the situation with him now?
Are their any fans who feel like this is just prolonging a departure that needs to happen, or are you just happy that the course of qualification is now safely in your own hands?
Personally, and this is coming from a man who's nation's media slaughtered Steve Staunton into him losing his job (And to be honest, it had to happen), do you think McClaren can learn from the campaign and change things for Euro 2008?
