Mclaren proves disastrous for England, as do the players
England were abysmal against Croatia and deserved not to qualify for Euro 2008. The fact is that the FA didn't want Mclaren as national coach in the first place because they knew he wouldn't be good for England, but they had to give him the job because they failed to lure Scolari to the job.
The FA knew then that Mclaren was not good enough for England.
The players also must share the blame. I have never seen such an abysmal performance and to be honest, it been going on for far too long now. It seems that whatever system England play, or whomever the personnel are, it simply does not work. Nobody can seem to get 11 English players playing good football. England have not been able to get the basics right and that has been their downfall.
England now need a major change. Mclaren must go and so too must some of the players.
