Seemed odd when you have an injured fullback, not to replace him with a fullback.mwhat does Shepperd have to do.
Nonsense.

Why would we need four at the back when they've just had Sow sent off? Even if Penny wasn't injured, he'd have been culled anyway so we could go three at the back. Pretty sure we didn't need a back four just to look after Aneke, as awesome as he is (predicted here earlier in the week btw).
Absolutely right Chompy. Unfortunately the replacement (Junior) is a mile away from being able to do a job.

I have never been one to be too condemning of players or management but after yesterday's shambolic performance how can you not?
Playing against nine men for ninety minutes calls for calm heads and a deaigned, thought out strategy and we appeared to have neither.
GM can stand on the touchline waving his arms like a windmill on speed all he likes but clearly his messages whatever they were clearly didn't reach his players.
We showed no patience, rarely stretched them, rarely got behind them or reached the by line and showed no subtley in our play whatsoever
DM may dismiss it on his twitter account as a bad day at the office but am sorry, any doubts I and many others previously held about GM's lack of tactical nous were confirmed yesterday afternoon during what was 100 minutes of utter humiliation.
Four, at times it looked like five at the back against eight men and a lone striker is frankly embarrassing, dear oh dear of dear!
I hate to say it but congratulations to MK for holding out with nine men for so long and am sorry to say it but the Mcann out camp now has one more beleiving disciple, regardless of what we do in the next few games or indeed for the remainder if his tenure

What a surprise to see an anti-Posh Sunday morning post from hardcore 'fan' Ceenitall.

Free scoring Luton lost yesterday 4-0 to midtable Port Vale. These sort of results happen when games are congested. Yes Posh were confounded yesterday but to suggest sacking the manager after one bad result over the Christmas period is just like throwing your toys out the pram. We just have to accept we will still be a division one side next season.

No we don't. I agree that we need to find some sort of consistency in our results but sacking the manager is definitely not the way to go. Klopp would have gone ages ago if that were so.

The interesting thing about this message board is that everybody knows better than McCann.
We all know now that Junior is "a mile away from being able to do a job".
But we have all been wanting him back asap. McCann brought him on and it didn't work. Had it worked (nearly) all of us would have said it was a great move.

That is why WE are ALL better and more experienced managers than McCann is! :lol: :lol: :wink:

I thought it was a fair result yesterday. Two teams void of ideas, inconsistent form from both of them and when Lopes and Anderson came on, both teams playing with 9 men.
As for the criticism surrounding McCann!
Great player he was, Manager he is not!

Good post for you Ray....

It wasn't the defeat that hurt so much...rather than the circumstances that surrounded it.

The likelihood is we will be a league one side next season....We are neither good enough or consistent enough to be anything else.

You can't expect everyone to just sit back and accept it though.

The heirachy need to get this transfer window bang on though...that's for sure.

Don't think we should be giving up just yet. Wait and see what the window brings. There's plenty enough talent in this squad to make the top six.

You are quite correct in what you say about the talent. It's just a matter of if we can harness that talent, coupled with a few well selected mid season transfers. It has been done by teams before us.

Spot on guys. We can give up in February if that's what happens post transfer window!
