Steve McClaren, the new Queens Park Rangers team manager, is thought to be urgently 'reconsidering his position', after his side were treated to a 7-1 drubbing by West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, yesterday.
The former England boss was seen boarding the team bus holding a towel.
He may have been going to throw it in somewhere.
Mr McClaren, who has already managed at several English clubs at several levels - failing at them all - refuses to accept that he was just a reasonably good player who has developed delusions of grandeur about coaching.
As well as making a poor attempt with the national side, he has also managed Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United, and has had two spells at Derby County - who don't seem to have been able to make their minds up the first time. At the first club he managed, Middlesbrough, he earned the unwanted distinction of being able to join a select band of football managers who have had season passes chucked in their faces, and this on Match Of The Day!
He also had two spells at Twente in Holland, where he had some uncharacteristic success the first time, but not so the second. He also managed Wolfsburg in Germany, from where he was sacked.
His latest appointment at Loftus Road was a surprise to many QPR supporters, who hadn't realised things had got quite so desperate.
McClaren is odds-on favourite to be the first manager sacked this season. That's if he doesn't throw that towel in first!
