Well, Grant has gone. David Oldfield caretaking.
Could do worse than give Oldfield the job imo.

Goodbye and thank you for your service, Grant.

Official Club Statement
The football club have tonight (Sunday 25th February) issued the following statement.

Peterborough United Football Club have parted company with manager Grant McCann.

McCann has been in charge at the ABAX Stadium since May 2016. David Oldfield has been put in caretaker charge of the team ahead of Tuesday night’s Sky Bet League One fixture with Walsall.

Chairman Darragh MacAnthony said: “I love Grant, he is a legend of this football club and always will be but it has not quite happened in management for him here and it was the right time to part ways. I thank him for all his efforts and wish him and his family the very best in the future.

Director of Football Barry Fry added: “Grant has worked morning, afternoon and night on behalf of the football club. There is such a thin line between success and failure. There have been many decisions that have gone against us this season and we would certainly be in a better position in the league had they gone in our favour.”

“His work ethic has been second to none and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for any job at any other club. I would like to thank Grant for his magnificent service to Peterborough United Football Club.”

The club will be making no further comment.

Not sure about Ceenitall's post either. It's all about opinions and it looks like the witch hunt on here has come to fruition. Not too sure about Oldfield either. Isn't he part of the current management set up that has been coaching the squad? Surely the players have got to have a long, hard look at themselves as well.

The right decision imo....

Darragh obviously feels we can still reach the play offs with a different man in charge.

I reckon he's already got that man lined up.

It can't be Oldfield though...He's part of a failed management team...He'll surely be on his way too.

Yes, Oldfield is holding the reigns until a new appointment arrives.

Oldfield is part of the current management yes, but unlike McCann he has the coaching experience with a Burton team that made it into the championship.

As for the players I concur wholeheartedly.

I reckon you may be right. Probably has got someone in mind but needs to be careful with this choice.

Also I can see a lot of people holding back from renewing their season tickets (me included) until this appointment is made.

With Darragh saying he will be away for a break I assume Oldfield will be caretaker for 2 games at least - maybe longer, to see how he performs.

I seem to remember DMac attaching no blame to Grant as assistant to other managers.

Don't like to see anyone lose their job, but it had to happen didn't it?
