    IS ANYONE HAPPY WITH THE APPOINTMENT OF MCLAREN?

    I agree, try this for a scenario: FA want Scolari but he is an honourable man and doesnt want to leave Portugal, the press make it easy for him to publicly refuse (don't ya just love fleet street) But in reality he tells the FA, "look guys, I have to take Portugal, and it won't do either team any good if I say yes now, so just appoint some numbnut to hold the press til after the world cup, and then when the coast is clear I'll pop over".
    Makes sense to me, I mean why else would the FA appoint McClaren?? Mind you whenever did the FA make sense
