McCann is the chairmans puppet He wants a manager he can control and dictate to. I listened to an interview recently in an Irish sports radio station and our chairman admitted that previous managers have been axed in the past,because they won't adhere to the club's policies and have tried to introduce their own managerial influence. That's why we will never get an experienced manager at this club and that's why we will go nowhere under the regime of this arrogant chairman.
I heard this interview and you've massively twisted what was said. As DMac would put it, 'to suit your own narrative'.

He was basically digging at Westley. You mean to say we should be signing more Simon Gillett types iyo?

Also, calm down tony! We're all on the same side here. Except Ceenitall obv, who's a Cobbler.
I think he was digging at quite a few managers not just Westley. I can imagine our chairman to be a very stubborn individual who likes his own way and doesn't like any criticism or interference of how he runs his club. Any manager who is not prepared to accept or work with his policies doesn't have a prayer of succeeding for very long. That has been proven not only with Westley and no doubt it will happen a few more times yet.

Sounds abut right.

Of course, if McCann has to go, DMac will take that as a blow to his own mahoosive ego, given the way he ramped him as the next Pep Guardiola and all.

He might have to go and buy himself a non-league football club. Retail therapy.

This is partly why I think McCann will get at least another season, as to sack him now would imply Darragh got it wrong.... yet again.... and that will be too much for his ego

Am I anti posh too for not thinking we have a hope for the play offs?
No, John, you're not anti Posh for thinking we may not make the play offs. A lot of us think that.
But to say "There's zero chance of us making the top six under GM. Literally zero." when it is not true is anti Posh. In my opinion. A true Posh supporter would not be continually rubbishing the club and its manager. In my opinion.

I definitely accept that we are all on the same side. It's just that, in my opinion, some of us frame our comments in an anti Posh manner.

Well you're wrong. Again. Just leave it tony and stick to picking formation with two defenders in.

This is utter nonsense again Tony, your opinion and mine are different that's all - perhaps more tolerance is required?

I would love nothing more than McCann to be successful but i don't see it. Stating that I don't expect it to happen isn't anti-Posh if anything it is extreme disappointment as we (Posh - my club) won't progress beyond mid table

I did not say that your comments were anti Posh. Most of us agree with you that we look like missing out on getting in to the top six. But only one at least of us say it in an anti Posh way.

Nobody tells me how to support my local football club, least of all any on here. I support them as I see fit. If I want to criticise a rubbish manager I will.

Reading DM's twitter ramblings he actually let it slip that he sanctioned spending £100,000 on Bogles wages, divide that into little over three months and it suggests for the duration he becomes our highest paid player.
Following that through then, if GM is the chairman's puppet as some suggest, how long will it be before he is forcess to start him. If he doesn't then could it represent the most expensive short term loan we have ever had and if it does at least prove that GM is indeed his own man who makes gia own decisions?

I'd not rely on Darraghs tweats tbh. Many think there's plenty of time he's liberal with the truth!
