a non performance from posh, at Mk, very disappointing, anyhow 9 points from 5 games, making Donny a must win
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Forget it Stuie....The latest purple patch is over.

We are not good enough or consistent enough to mount any sort of challenge.

And a good January buy/sell and we're back on track for the play-offs at least.

I hope I am wrong, but imo, January buy/sell will be a damp squid, and with our total inconsistency , the play offs (if we lose to Donny) are over

No grammar bully me, but the OCD side of me can't let damp squib pass by.

Genuine play-off sides do not play against nine men for over an hour and fail to score. Ever.

We need this window badly.

We've all been saying that for yonks. Hopefully Barry Fry will read this and take note.

As long as McCann remains in charge at posh I will no longer be attending matches. he has done nothing since he has taken over,clueless in tactics and man management.Hard earned money p***** against the wall, no more.

sad post, understand the issues, however I will do 20 games a season (home or away) who ever is in charge

however I do not feel Posh will reach our full potential, unless we bin Grant, or Grant learns faster than he has :comeon:

Be fair to him Stuie....

He never makes the same mistake twice.

He just invents new ones.

The manager never seems to miss an opportunity to extol the virtues of his squad. 'A tremendous group of players' was his latest puff, pre-Doncaster. Those with the perspicacity to distinguish mutton from lamb might beg to differ. But the MuttonMeister has made a rod for his own back in this regard. If the players are so good, then why do they perform so badly, whether in victory or defeat? (The 3-0 win over Bury looks good on paper, for example, but we were second-best until Bury went down to ten men.) If his prancing lambs are so good, why did National League Tranmere and Woking match us so easily in the first games of the ties? If his players are such paragons of excellence, what should be said about Shrewsbury, disappearing over the horizon fifteen points ahead of us. If the team is mediocre, then his professional judgement is badly awry; if it's as good as he keeps telling us it is, then it's being coached very poorly.

And that's what a manager should do isn't it?
A manager shouldn't blame the players for everything all the time.

GPWM but he is hardly going to come out in public and say his players just aren't up to the job. Besides that, I think they are good enough but are struggling to find a bit of form at the moment.
