Is it OK to say he failed in 4 of his 7 jobs as manager


I would sum up his career as "a mixed bag"

Hold my hands up I've got a bee in my bonnet about McLaren.

For me he's the wrong man at the wrong time at the wrong club.

He hasn't failed everywhere.

But he's failed more than he's succeeded with a whole load of mediocrity in between.

He did fail at Boro. Considering the money they spent, a huge amount by the standards of the time, he consistently failed to build a team. Scatter gun signings, no clear shape or plan.

He got to the UEFA Cup final by flukely pulling it out of the fire three rounds in a row by throwing on 4 forwards (including Massimo Maccarone who he bought for £8 million) and bundling goals in extra time. Dismantled utterly in the final.

If you want to know if he was any good - ask a Boro fan.

He had lots of money and a great squad at Derby and failed to get promotion twice. Teams went on bad losing runs he couldn't turn around

Utter embarrassing shambles at Newcastle.

Dumped very quickly by Wolfsburg.

England failed to qualify for WC under him.

Even Twente got rid second time round.

How much more failure do you need?


He won the League Cup, got to the final of the UEFA Cup, several other good cup runs, good positions in the Premier League, close misses with Derby, won the Dutch League with an unfashionable club. 44.8% win percentage much of it in the top divisions. If that is failure then 90+% of football managers are failures.

Holloway 36.1% win percentage mostly Championship or lower.

In modern football sacking is virtually inevitable. You cannot say that an experienced manager is a failure because he has been sacked a few times. Just about all of them have.
