So we are now down to 10th with the possibility of dropping into the bottom half with the other games in hand.

For a multi-million pound squad in league 1, that is totally unacceptable.

Embarrassing for all concerned
We are 7 points away from the top two teams.
We are only 2 points away from the top six.

Can you try being positive, Gaz ? Who says that teams with games in hand will win them?

Nothing is over in the campaign.
There are few points between us and the top. But there are too between us and the bottom :mrgreen:
I think team has enough abilities and mind to get on playoffs at the minimum. Toney is a player could play on Championship with no doubt. The same for Beevers, Reed, Maddison.
To replace Maddison will be tough because he is a very special player even if like others players he is in bad form currently.
I'm optimistic for the future and capacity of the team to get better and win matches starting by a win on Wimbledon pitch on Saturday before to struggle with two top league : Wycombe and Rotherham at Weston Home

I have a feeling we may not have to replace Maddison at this stage. I certainly hope he stays.

Toney I agree, but Beevers, what ever you’ve been drinking I want some, he shouldn’t be playing above Sunday league or Scottish Prem.

Beevers is a poor man's Tafazolli IMO. On the face of it he looked a good acquisition but somehow it hasn't quite worked out - yet!

I observe the team concede lot of goals. It's tough to stay on the top with it.
We have to make a better defense before make a better strike.
I think Taylor could be a good add value for the team. I think it's the same for Brown.
And team has good youngs players as Jones, Barker and Cartwright too.

If he gets the bullet from Posh, could his managerial career be over. He's only failed when he's gone elsewhere and his tactics are predictable & stale. I'd say this is his last chance in the professional game!

I personally think that the next 6 games will determine his future and the fixtures are tough to say the least. I know fans don't like to critisize our chairman but if Fergie does go it worries me who we will get to replace him. MacAnthony is just as clueless when it comes to employing managers as some of the hierarchy he has previously employed.

Don't let it worry you White G.

Although I agree it's a massive worry who MacAnthony gets in next, I don't believe he's got all the previous managers wrong (it's just he can ONLY work with one).

Garry Johnson had us in the play offs when he was sacked & all he asked for was more money to bolster his squad (something the current useless one seems to waste at the click of his fingers).

Grant McCann had us in the play offs but was hampered by the chairman telling him who he had to play. Once left alone he's gone on to prove he's a very good manager.

Steve Evans had us in the play-offs and both pre & post Posh he's proved what an excellent manager he is (can you imagine where Gillingham would be this season with the useless one in charge?)


The problem is at the top. If he can only work with one man then he needs to look at himself rather than who he's employing.

No excuses now. Ferguson has said he's got all the players he's wanted, he's been backed by the owners with more money than most League One managers could ever dream of & he's getting rid of all the players he doesn't want.

Nothing short of promotion will do now.
