I used to think that about managers like Souness, Curbishley and Hughes.
It's as if because they have managed several clubs, no matter how unsuccessfully, they will still get offered decent jobs.
How McClaren got the job at Newcastle just shows what Ashley knows about football.
It was obvious to everyone except him that getting him from Derby, where he had done almost nothing, was done because he was cheaper than getting a proper manager for such a big club.
I can only think he took some advice from someone who knows about football when he hired Benitez.
