I agree, all unemployed managers are unemployed for a reason.
In the case of Birmingham and Blackburn - the owners don't have a clue what they are doing!

We certainly DON'T have the players....and it's nothing to do with systems or money.

It's down to poor and inexperienced management decisions and physically and mentally weak footballers who just aren't good enough.

McCann's decision to play a defender who hasn't kicked a ball in four months...and make him captain...is up there with his worst.

He appears as clueless as his predecessors....

I, too, was surprised to see Baldwin back and with the armband. Didn't really work, did it?

Bozzy really is a beast. A beast with a half-healed broken jaw. I feared for him. Playing last night, imho, was beyond the call of duty.

Not sure I'm liking McGee's attitude towards the lads too much. Having a go at Maddison last night seemed, to me, well out of order. At that particular time, there were another 4 players who let us down, not Magic. For sure, Mr McGee has a bad temper. AND he could've done better for their 2nd.

Good news that Gwion will be back in time for the Play Offs though.

Graham Westley, Dave Robertson, Darren Fergusson, Gary Johnson and Mark Cooper are all currently employed which kind of puts a dent in that argument

Darren Ferguson? Seems to be doing OK at Donny.

I agree, but had you pressed the little quote button you could have saved a minute of your life typing out the offending piece

What possessed GM to play Bossie when he hinted in his pre-match talk that Ball was going to play and could do well in that position? I winced every time the ball was directed at his head. I'm not sure if he was wearing a gum guard or not but no way should you play with a broken jaw. It was a night when the back four were pulled apart by a very slick and rampant forward Southend side who looked really confident.
I was disappointed with the crowd who booed Maddison when he was nominated motm.Not his fault because and he was always willing to have a crack at goal.
The result was bad but GM will have to learn from it and supporters should give him a seasons chance at least.

Ray. ...Did you know that both times he's dropped Ball we've gone on to concede 4 goals. (Franchise and Southend)?

McCann needs to take a good look at himself.

All of whom managed Posh at league one level or higher. And how many of those are currently managing at league one level?

I don't wish to be rude but it has got **** all to do with you.
Not POSH and don't go to the matches so frankly I don't see why you take any interest.
On general points on both sites you can be interesting if not a tad fuddy duddy but on club events both on and off the pitch it really is not your concern.

I must admit I fail to see what Ball had done wrong and Jack whilst I like him had a mare alongside Leo
