Sorry Stuie... but I don't get these posts.

It's not about how many points we're averaging....it's about how many games we're losing.

If we carry on losing....McCann will get sacked.

About mid December I reckon.

I understand where you are coming from, I in my own mind use, and always have done this scoring system, it helps me take away the emotion off the last game, so instead of 0.2 points average for the last 5 games, use Chompy terms 1 point in 15, same equation. I also believe league tables (agreeing with Brian here) mean nothing, however 2 points a game means promotion 1 point means relegation, so Imo the batting average since the start of the season is a valid indicator of the teams (mangers) performance, and helps me remember the first 4 wins of the season. Just saying

I believe DMac here.
If we carry on losing McCann is likely to walk. But if he doesn't then DMac will sack him in January.

I doubt he'll walk. Managers rarely do these days as I believe it affects their payoff (could be wrong on that though). We carry on with our relegation form and another season over by January

If you walk you get no pay off

regards auto promotion season already over, and probably for top six

just go and enjoy the roller coaster

It amuses me that people actually thought we were going to walk this league and now after 14 games during a bad run and not long after GM was made manager of the month in August people are calling for his head. It's a funny old game.

I don't know anyone who thought that.

If you're happy with McCann then you're happy with mid table mediocracy...or worse.

Successful managers and teams don't make the amount of mistakes we do.

Perhaps I have a better degree of patience than you after 14 games into a season.
Success and failure can be fine line distinctions in football as was GM getting a trophy on September 1st.

However you perceive posh at the moment you should at least cheer yourself up (I know thats hard on this board) that we are doing a lot better than the Cobblers, the franchise and Fergies Donny.
I'm looking forward to the Shrews game this Saturday and we'll see what they are made of.

Generally speaking the buck stops with the manager.
Not at Posh.
Here the buck stops with the owner. Because that's the way he likes it.

At the moment we are.

As for Shrewsbury...You'll be seeing a big physical well organised outfit.

We should be made for them.

However....we can't beat teams on long losing runs, maybe we can beat one on a long unbeaten one.

I very much doubt it though.

There are still 96 points (32 games) to play for this season and we are still only just a third of the way through the season.













..... and guess what .... we are just two points off the play-off places!





....... we still have the rigours of the winter to get through and another transfer window to negotiate!






..... and some are calling for the manager's head! Who said that there is no loyalty in football? Absolutely ridiculous!

No it isn't.

What's our record been in the last four weeks?

Much longer down this road and the season will be over by the end of November.

GM's immediate task is to garner some points.....If he fails he is bound to be in doubt land searching for some sort of savior....or inspiration. The boss bought the players, he wants results.
