If anything, I'd say successful football gambler would be a better judge than a second-rate referee when it comes to these matters, but modesty forbids me from stating it on a forum.
is that the one who predicted a trouncing by Fleetwood per chance

Posh are Championship standard, no doubt about it. Pity they don't have a manager up to the job, he spends most of match time complaining to the Fourth official, one day he will be disciplined for it.
An exaggerated post in every term. Why would he get disciplined?
As for Grant not being up to the job, is he not better than the 16 managers of teams below Posh in Division one?

Is that how you rank managers Ray? The same as the league table?

Eventually yes come the end of the season. It's not me calling for his head before Christmas, is it.

Tweet from Swanny
Posh have picked up 104 points from possible 213 under Grant McCann (including games as caretaker). The best % (almost 49%) since Fergie's first spell (almost 58%) #pufc

which is 1.5 points per game, as we already know, so not promotion material

So what you are saying it's alright for his detractors to say it but not him.
I'm talking league form...so I don't get your point.
The point was you were saying taking away the first and last four weeks of the seasons, to me suggests you too are trying to manipulate the statistics to fit your case
Manipulating what exactly?

The facts remain that we start well....struggle...and then win a few late on when the pressure is off.

If you look at televised games every manager complains at the fourth official when they feel their team has been wronged. I suppose you'd be happier if he just sat back and accepted all the appalling decisions that could ultimately cost him his job. Had we have lost 2-1 having certainly deserved at least one if not both penaltie, you would probably have joined a chorus of Posh folk trying to get him the sack.
!5 years as a referee, some of that time at London Road gives me much more knowledge than you.
Given the standard of referees at London Road. I wouldn't say this was a positive statement! :lol:

hmmm... So Grant McCann is the best manager since ALL of Darragh's poor management decisions since Fergie? :shock:

I'm not sure if that is a statistic to be proud of! :lol:
