If the team is mediocre, then his professional judgement is badly awry; if it's as good as he keeps telling us it is, then it's being coached very poorly.
So you are agreeing with Stuie then?

however I do not feel Posh will reach our full potential, unless we bin Grant, or Grant learns faster than he has :comeon:

The manager never seems to miss an opportunity to extol the virtues of his squad.
And that's what a manager should do isn't it?
A manager shouldn't blame the players for everything all the time.
Well, that is debatable, since such statements are part of the manager's ongoing dialogue with an ever-dwindling body of supporters, most of whom are capable of making their own value-judgements on what they see on the pitch. Publicly 'backing his players' can place an unfair burden of expectations on them, as in the case of the 'EPL interest' in LDSL. At one point, Noel Cantwell placed the whole team on the transfer list, and when it comes to man-management, I'd take Cantwell over the MuttonMeister any day. The alternative is not to 'blame the players for everything all the time', but to acknowledge that they are underachieving significantly in particular circumstances --specifically in the consistent failure to beat teams in the relegation zone -- last season as well as this one. If we can't beat them, we're ultimately in danger of joining them.

My opinions are my own; whether or not they coincide to any degree with any other poster's is incidental. We have a manager who claims not to make the same mistake twice, but so far, this season looks very like last season, and I'd be hard put to point to any significant improvement or progress.

I'll take that as a "Yes" then.

Or a 'No'; or a 'Maybe'; or a 'Sometimes'. I don't imagine that this is of any interest to anyone.
