Fans have backed Steve McClaren to stay on as England coach and blamed the players for recent poor performances in a survey for the BBC's Inside Sport.
A total of 452 fans were questioned by telephone in England between Friday and Sunday, before, during and after Israel's Euro 2008 win over Russia.
And the results show that 50% think McClaren should stay on as manager regardless of whether England qualify.
Meanwhile, 37% of the respondents think he should go regardless.
The numbers hardly changed regardless of whether the interviews were done before or after the Israel match - before the match 49% said he should stay on, afterwards it was 51%.
Most fans point the finger at the players for England's troubles, 50% saying they are at fault compared to only 22% who blame the manager.
A further 16% say the FA should be held responsible.
Fans in the East Midlands emerge as McClaren's biggest supporters (69% backing him to stay), while those in the West Midlands are his biggest detractors (52% wanting him to go).
Israel's 2-1 victory revived England's hopes of qualifying for next summer's Euro 2008 finals, with McClaren's side just needing a draw against Croatia on Wednesday.
There is a margin of error + or - 5% in the results - telephone survey carried out by GFK NOP.
