I see McCann has had a dig at MacAnthony and Posh.

Maybe he’s right?

Steve Evans had a dig at McCann after taking over as Posh manager. Karma.

A dig? He failed to do an interview without having a backhanded swipe at McCann. :roll:

It must be noted that the points per game average of previous boss Steve Evans (1.66) would have yielded 76 points over a full season and a place in the play-offs, which is where Posh were sitting when he left. That’s an inconvenient fact for some when placed alongside Ferguson’s 1.41 points per game

you are not thick mate so stop being deliberately obtuse.
The rot had set in and his 'yield' is irrelevant.
That run was not being sorted so that number would of soon reduced.
As well you know Fergie struggled to begin with due to the mess fat boy left and with some players seriously pissed off with their lot.
He had to change the style, boost the players and get things improved which he did.

Indeed.

What was Evans' average number of points per game from the start of November?

Good point.

Several digs. Cant recall McCann publicly blaming individual players either.

Here we have a thread entitled Grant McCann.
I expected to see a post or two congratulating McCann for getting into the playoffs.
Instead it has deteriorated into yet another Evans v Fergie thread.
Grant McCann was a great player for the Posh.
I hope he is successful as a manager.
Well done Grant McCann for getting Doncaster into the playoffs. Just a shame that it meant we missed out.

By virtue of the fact that it was in "The Posh" forum, at first glance I thought perhaps he was back. Should the thread not have been in other football?

If it was about McCann then it should have been.
But it is all about Fergie v Evans. The present and previous managers.

More hammer for Ferguson v McCann (and MacBlarney doesn't come out of it very well either - reported to the FA for a tweet?) :oops:

Ooh, even though they’ve scraped into a playoff spot, aren’t they all bitter up north?
