Don't think so.

What are you basing this on please?
It's only my opinion Chompy. Like you, I don't claim to be right all of the time.
I base all of my comments on what I read on the message boards. Such as your comment "His loan players have been worse than any manager's in living history."
And the ratings given to the players on UpThePosh!
I really doubt that McCann has the last word on who comes in on loan.
It could easily be that I've got it wrong.
Apologies if I have.
Being happy never goes out of style.

I'm unconvinced he even has the first word on signings. Just gets the blame when the latest young and hungry mediocre player is signed

McCann's players ..McCann's team.

The buck stops with him.

He's not up to the job and somewhere down the line he'll lose it
Very astute as usual, Super.
You have correctly worked out that I don't see the Posh play.
And you have (almost certainly correctly) forecast that McCann will not be manager of the Posh forever.

You do realise McGee is on loan, that makes up for all the rest.

Grant is not the man for the job. Anyone who thinks he is, is more into sentiment than observing what is put in front of them for quite a tidy wedge of money.

Even Mc.Gee is now only half the player he was 3 months ago.

McGee is the least of our worries Brian...He's just seeing out his time here, he'll be gone for good after April 29.

My concerns are our players...Those that will be here next season.

As it stands...It's near a relegation squad more than anything else.

When will you lot actually get the fact, that any manager at Posh is just a puppet to the ego of MacAnthony.

Until McAnthony moves on the club will stay where it is on the pitch.

Granted he has passion, pumped money in and all of that and fair play to him for doing that. But he has far too much influence for a chairman on, on the pitch matters, he is after all a very strong minded individual, a very forthright character that I for one would not relish speaking to every day!

He has never been able to find that balance of being a club chairman and owning the club and leaving the players and on field matters to his 1st team manager. The best chairman are the ones that go about their business under the radar, who don't constantly crave publicity, use twitter or any other social media medium.

Get that right and the club will flourish, even under McCann who I rate highly.

Our owner has put a lot of time and money into our club.
He is also a fan, so as much right to an opinion as the next fan.
The sooner he goes - the sooner we will become a non-league team.

He's a Liverpool fan.

We were a non-league club before he arrived?

He seems to have average funds for a chairman these days. Everyone so worried about what happens if he was to leave but not at all concerned about if he stays

Give McCann time to prove that DMac made the right decision.
Then we'll all be happy.
