a) We scrape a result against Israel and then end up sneaking into Euro 2008, where we fail to get past the quarter finals because Stevie Mac is clueless.
b) Israel stuff us, and the FA is forced to sack McClaren and hire a decent manager – the catch being that we don’t then qualify for Euro 08 because of the position McClaren has left us in. The upside is that we at least have a good manager to build for the next World Cup.
Not sure if I’d go for a) or b). The first choice seems the most likely scenario to actually happen, but that depresses the hell out of me, because it’s so familiar to all England fans. I’ve read opinion from lots of England fans who actually want us to lose to Israel and so enforce scenario b), but no doubt the FA would cock things up again. All views welcomeâ€¦
