Total nonsense all this new manager talk as I don't think that DMac will make the same mistake of getting rid of another manager this quickly again. There are maybe eight or nine teams that are likely to be contesting that last playoff place and any of those could put a run together and snatch that final spot. He realises that loyalty is important within a football club and even if we remain just outside the playoffs at the end of the season I would be very surprised if he sacked Grant even then.
So would I BUT it will be down to Darragh not us on here to decide. Agree any of 8 or 9 teams could still move up given a good consistent run. Posh are not very consistent, nor have been since last September. I will of course continue to observe each game and comment as I see it, good or bad.
The results achieved are important of course, but the standard of football/entertainment played even more so.

Reading Darragh's tweets over the past couple of weeks....I'd say McCann would have to get us into the play offs at the very least to survive

One step away from being given a vote of confidence?
Can't see that from Darragh. Doesnt seem like his style at all....

A tough game for us....Scunthorpe will certainly be working on our latest mental issues of throwing games away at the death....As we did at their gaff in October.

What do we need....3 goals cushion going into the last 15?
A new manager

The manager is well aware of the importance of this evenings' match. To be fair the ball is in his court. A good result will do him no harm, what would a calamity do for him?

Another poor showing v Scunthorpe and his number must surely be close to up now?

A loss on the Blackpool sandpit might just be the final straw.

There is no future under GM. It's just whether DMac is happy to wait until the summer and write this season off, or act now and hope for new impetus from the stand-in/new gaffer.

Sadly,i have to agree Chompy.There is enough quality in this squad to do better but they are clearly not motivated and organised enough.

Grant is slowly becoming a dead man walking...

He hasn't got the skills...either on or off the pitch to get us anywere near the top six.

If anything he's regressing as a manager.

We went into the January transfer window looking to sign an attacking midfielder to help our non existent midfield...instead we sign 2 wingers and a striker, who can't get in the side.

You couldn't make it up....and as for Darragh, his Twitter silence is deafening.

He'll be furious, no doubt.

Hmm. Less than a month ago you were rapidly becoming a fan of Grant McCann.

Seems that Darragh is pointing his finger at the players rather than management going by his Twitter tonight...

Maybe...once again....McCann will be the last man standing.

Players cost money, McCann is costing him peanuts.

Players certainly have some responsibility bit can't see Darragh criticising McCann as it will imply he got another appointment wrong. He doesn't do mistakes.... Ceenitall will be claiming hrs right again

McCann just got the vote of confidence.....isn't that the first step to the exit gate?
