He deserves a chance next season to learn from his and others mistakes to put things right. He could do with a bit less pressure from Darragh

Since we left the Championship, it has been next year, next year, it is still next year. Given Grant's line ups and lack of tactics, no he does not warrant more time. It is time DMac ditched the cheap option and ferreted out an experienced manager.

With Stuie. Darren Ferguson inherited a team in the play off places but ultimately failed at the end of that season to keep us in the top six - and history shows that didn't end too badly.

McCann needs till the end of next season. If we havnt improved standards by then, perhaps a change may be needed, but not yet.

I don't suppose anyone can call Tim Stoodley's preview, on the Official site, overly optimistic but it makes interesting reading.
"Striker Chris Maguire has been a front-man during his career but Oxford have been utilising him on the right wing, where he's quite happy to cut inside and cause the defence problems or deliver a killer cross into the box. He is joint-top assist maker for his side and also top scorer with nine goals this campaign"
"Another striker that needs close attention on Saturday is Everton loanee Conor McAleny. He's scored four goals from just five starts, including a sensational hat trick in Oxford's 0-4 drubbing away to Chesterfield."
"Left winger Marvin Johnson is joint-top assist maker. Johnson is comfortable at either left back or on his favoured left midfield and possess fantastic natural balance and pace. He's also known for his dribbling and crossing abilities."
"Last five games; Posh - LLWLL Oxford - WWWLL"
This game has Home win written all over it!!
:comeon:
Posh 2 Oxford 1
Being happy never goes out of style.

Perhaps Posh should play for corners, it seems set pieces are the main source of goals. We have yet to see a striker turn up for a match.

Me and Mrs Lister are having a few in the Coalheavers before kick off. That mild goes down faster than Luis Suarez.

Looks like a diamond to me. Oh dear. Good for the Oxford bet though.

I would copy your bet but I bet the odds have taken a nose dive!

Here we go yet again.

Oxford leading one nil.

We've had five corners, four shots and nothing to show for it. Story of our season.

Don't worry though, the lads are an honest bunch and still bubbly in training.

I'm starting to get some crow pictures ready.

Smith is off, replaced by Harry Anderson. Guessing the diamond is gone, cos Anderson is no right back
