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.
We're not championship standard in any shape or form.

Maybe Grant should also stop papering over the cracks by including victories in meaningless cup competitions and FA Cup replays against non league opposition in his stats....

He should...and will...be judged on league form.

Take away the first and last 4 weeks of the season(s)...

And I'd expect that % would drop considerably.
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

Or maybe you're just manipulating posts to try and cause trouble? As per.

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.

And modesty...

Being an ex-referee doesn't make you any better a judge than anyone else. It may give you a different way of looking at things, but it doesn't make you a better judge.

Just so you know.

More than a referee....Referee secretary for the Sunday afternoon league when it had 8 divisions, referee secretary at Hunts FA. Thanks to the generosity of Northants FA I attended a referee assessors course, got the badge and a free pass to every ground in England. And....I was a good friend of Brian Clough, who, due to an injury ran the line for me in order to complete a match.
The middle is far distant from the rowdy terraces, did you know that?

Yup, but none of that puts you in a better position to judge Grant McCann as a manager than anyone else on this forum.

Possibly does, but it is all about opinions and statistics

if the stats are good, a majority of opinions will be good

if the stats are bad, then a majority of opinions will be bad

Just for the record, I thought Grant was the wrong choice as Manager, however I carry on being on the fence, as to when he should be sacked

as DMAC said when he appointed him, there are 2 things in football, as a Manager, one, you will loss games, and two, you eventually get sacked

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.

You should stick to thread matter, it is about a second rate manager who knows nothing about refereeing.

and I thought Grant has his coaching badges, surely there must be at least one module on refereeing
