Comedy really.

He played for them once, and is known for his abilities with young players (is he?), so errr...he's linked with the Barnsley job, but only in this lolarticle.

He's not quoted by bookmakers because there's more chance of Wenger quitting to take over the reins.

GM is 5-1 with Skybet. 100% as a result of this Telegraph 'story' and one punter asking for a price. Probably allowed £1.63 on it before having his account shut.

I just had my maximum allowed stake on. A full £1. That should shorten the price again when they catch up in the morning. And I'm not joking!*

*EDIT, haha, it just went 9-2. Lolbookmaker.

"McCann took over Peterborough in 2016, and has kept them in contention for the play-offs as well as beating Championship Aston Villa in the FA Cup third round. He was among the youngest coaches to obtain the Uefa Pro License, first working as a coach at Peterborough before being appointed to the first team for the start of last season.

"Peterborough have seen the development of Jack Marriott, the current League One top goalscorer, whom McCann signed from Luton Town where the striker was out the team at the end of last season. Marcus Maddison, bought from Conference Premier Gateshead before McCann’s appointment as manager, has also attracted interest with his performances."


Amazing really, you can put a positive spin on pretty much anything.

A typical Alan Swann story. I thought he was trying to get back into Darragh's good books! Ha!

Forget this Barnsley nonsense....McCann needs to focus on the job in hand.

Because reading Darragh's tweets tonight...He's a man under pressure.
