Perry Groves Puts the Boot into Steve McClaren

Perry Pitches in with a Forthright Assessment of the England Players and Manager

Perry Groves Arsenal LegendFormer Arsenal legend, and friend of Footy-Boots, Perry Groves has given us his verdict on England’s performance against Andorra in the Euro 2008 qualifiers. England won against the part-timers, but their manner of victory was hardly emphatic, and coach Steve McClaren has been targetted as the culprit and mastermind of England’s downfall.

Perry was not exactly impressed by the lack of movement and urgency by the England players saying, “Whoever keeps tying their laces together needs to pack it in!”. Even Steven Gerrard comes in for a Perry pounding, “Get Gerrard to take his rollerskates off,” added the cult hero.

Perry Groves on Steve McClaren
Finally Perry turned his fury onto England coach Steve McClaren, who came in for some Perry Groves treatment earlier in the season (Read the Story) with a scathing attack that sums up the mood of a majority of England supporters.

“Steve McClaren? Give him one massive free boot out of the door.” adding “Boot McClaren out and stick him in a car boot sale!”. On Wednesday night’s performance the boot sale could well be McClaren’s next pitch!
