Derby County are insane. They have finally parted company after weeks of delay with the strange Nigel Pearson, they then interview candidates to take over the task of promotion to the Premier League and have decided on their man. That man is….Steve McClaren. Erm…what?

Not only did he completely fail in his six months at Newcastle by relegating the football club after huge funds were spent on the team, he failed to bring promotion to Derby County the season before. He was sacked after finishing outside the play-offs, despite topping the table at one stage with promotion looking guaranteed. They imploded beyond repair and he rightfully got the boot.
He then somehow managed to swindle himself a Premier League job with Newcastle off the back of this disaster, in which the team he was in charge of didn’t even have time to implode as they were useless pretty much from day one. Why Derby have decided to go back to this man is beyond any reasoning whatsoever.
“I regret how my time at Derby ended back in 2015 and I am very motivated to put things right for the club and our supporters. My ultimate aspiration remains exactly what it was before, to take Derby County back to the Premier League.”
Why the hell would you go back to the man who proved he wasn’t up to the task of promotion, when a club like Derby would have a long list of potential suitors?
There is a craze around at the minute of clowns wandering around the streets and scaring people…the streets around Pride Park is the scariest one yet.
Do the Derby County directors have no memory to speak of or have chosen to bury their heads in the sand? Talk about Ostriches eh Nigel…?
