10/11 ain't bad...and Chompy and myself I believe thought he may not fancy Anthony Grant.

Didn't make the 18 today....
It's good to see you and chompy getting something right, as well.
If Charlton hadn't missed that penalty I would have been spot on with my score prediction!

I'm predicting that Posh will reward Evans with a well fought win.

Match reaction from the Telegraph
A great win, but new Peterborough United manager expects even better performances as play-off push gathers pace.
Evans said
All credit to Grant McCann and Darragh MacAnthony for instilling the work ethic into the group. I just re-inforced it.

We wouldn't have won that game if Grant had have been in charge.

In your opinion. Leave Grant alone. Kicking a man when he's down is for bullies.

Under GM we dropped 20 points from winning positions...half of those in injury time.

We regularly lost away from home to struggling sides.

The likelihood is...We'd have folded at 2-1 up yesterday and lost at Bury with him.

It's not 'bullying'...They're facts.

Best not let those get in the way though.

Spot on.

Another highlight was listening to Francis Green trying not to let his Evans hatred spill over on Radio Cambs.

He failed.

Spot on. Nobody is bullying McCann. He was out of his depth. That's not his fault. Of course it is only 1 win. A win at Bury gives us a different proposition altogether and maybe just maybe things could be looking again. UTP

Heard him on the way home resenting our new management team.

He's probably another Posh 'fan' that wanted Grant to stay...or Ferguson to return.

What's the matter with these people?

Franny was part of the Boston team that got relegated under Evans and he admitted there were issues between them.

I've still no idea why he's being used by Radio Cambs, and this Evans resentment will soon start to annoy.

As for Evans, he apparently had one of his quieter touchline games. Despite that, he could be seen banging on non-stop, heard shouting a couple of times, and given a warning by the ref together with KR. Love this sort of thing. More please.

Turn up at the ground and you won't have to listen to him! Most enjoy his comments and find them infinitely better than that previous Posh player Guy Branston. :lol:

I was at the game yesterday. I listened to the radio on the way there and back.

Was half expecting someone to trot out the 'if yo don't like it, don't listen' line. But that's a non-argument.

Guy Branston was utterly appalling. Green is just poor. RC can do much better.

I listened to the radio on the way there and back too but didn't hear any of Green's comments at those specific times. I apologise if he was commentating during our journeys to and from the ground.

Now the dust has settled, history will show that Grant McCann is a case of getting a managers job too soon. He may be a very good coach, but he's not a manager. John Wile said when he became Posh boss he had to stop being the players friend and start being their boss, this is where I believe McCann fell down a bit.

Evans is their boss. He won't always make popular decisions, and the way he'll make them won't always be popular, I believe Francis Green was the victim of this at Boston (though we saw at Posh that Green wasn't exactly Aaron McLean). It will be a case of Evans will find something that works, and he will do what's necessary to do it. A few toes will get trodden on along the way.

I would have thought you'd have realised who was at the game yesterday by reading the posts.

Anyhow....

Radio Cambs is an excuse of a station and maybe they can't do any better than Branston or Green...Or maybe nobody else wants to do it.

If Green has a problem with Evans...Maybe he could do us all a favour and take himself off the airwaves.
