England football team are a waste of space
The current England football team has been named the Biggest Waste of Space Ever.
Wayne Rooney and Co's humiliating failure to qualify for Euro 2008 and abject displays since saw them beat junkie rocker Pete Doherty to claim the unwanted title.
The multi-millionaires needed just a point from their last group game against Croatia to secure their place in Austria and Switzerland.
But the shameful 3-2 defeat led to McClaren's sacking and left footy fans licking their wounds.
Third in the poll of 3,000 British blokes was beleagured Prime Minister Gordon Brown - who is blamed for the current credit crunch, rising fuel and food prices and house market crash.
A spokesman for storage product specialists BiGDUG, which carried out the poll, said: "The country was so disappointed let down when England failed to qualify for the Euro 2008 finals.
"We conducted the survey to find out what people deemed a waste of space.
"As storage product specialists we try to minimise the floor space wasted by businesses across the UK - but there's not a lot we can do about the England team or Gordon Brown.''
Toilet roll covers were voted into fourth place while former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona, who was recently declared bankrupt, is at five.
