Steve McClaren

The Newcastle United boss is making a mess of things, with Derby County and Nottingham Forest fans knowing how that feels all too well.

You always got the sense Steve McClaren's move to Newcastle United would make or break his reputation for good.

At Middlesbrough, 'Shteve' had some good times. With England, he was a failure. At FC Twente, Shteve had some good times. At Wolfsburg, he was a failure.

With Nottingham Forest, McClaren was a resounding failure, before he eventually showed some promise at Derby County - and then bottled it big time before getting the sack.

It's no wonder, then, that both Forest and Derby fans are laying into the 54-year-old after Newcastle's 6-1 loss to Manchester City.

The former England manager's time with the Magpies may well be what makes or breaks his reputation. Right now, it's almost broken it after just 10 games at Newcastle.

Not only is McClaren losing miserably but his excuses and lack of responsibility & authority are becoming another way of saying 'just sack me, Newcastle.' If the 54-year-old does get the sack, Nottingham Forest and Derby supporters will no doubt have a field day.

But there's already plenty for both Derby and Forest fans to get stuck into after Newcastle's 6-1 loss...

Here's how the Derby County and Nottingham Forest faithfuls responded on Twitter to McClaren's misery:
