DMac might quit?

Post by tonyp » 18 Jan 2020, 22:58

From the Peterborough Telegraph
https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/spo ... -1-9205939
Peterborough United chairman will quit his post if Posh don’t make the League One play-offs.
MacAnthony used his Twotter account to say: “Let me break my usual Saturday silence to answer the critics/experts. I have so much confidence in manager/staff/players that if we don’t achieve the play offs this season I’ll step down as chairman.”
[The paper said twotter - not me]

Let's all hope he is right to be confident and that we make the play-offs and keep him as the best chairman in the Football League.

Al we can do is support his confidence.

So an admission he can only work with one manager. That, quite frankly, is pathetic.

Maybe he genuinely believes that the current manager/staff/players will get us into the playoffs.
He says he will step down as chairman if we don't get into the playoffs.
He doesn't say he'll sell his shares and go elsewhere.

I think we'll get into the playoffs and DMac will be at Wembley to see us win promotion.

What about the chairman's 10 year plan? Or did that start from the day we lost at Crystal Palace.

Nobody can criticise the chairman's passion, commitment and financial contribution, but his judgement for employing managers leaves alot to be desired.

The constant going back to Ferguson is his biggest mistake.

Yes, he’s employed some useless managers (every chairman does) but I do think he got it right with Johnson, McCann & Evans. All of them had us in the play offs at time of dismissal and who knows where they could have taken us if they’d been left alone.

Yet somehow Ferguson is constantly blame free.

Something just doesn’t add up as to why he can only work with one man.

It adds up very easily.
He believes that Fergie will get us into the Championship and even beyond.
You and I and all Posh fans hope he is right.

1. DMac hasn't said he's leaving. Just standing down from chairman.
2. The other two bought shares from DMac. As far as I know they don't have money invested in Posh.
3. Therefore if they "left" it would not affect us being in the do-do.
4. I haven't seen the accounts so I could easily be wrong. Brian would know.

If we don't win either of the next two home games then Ferguson should quit.

Why should it be down to MacAnthony threatening to leave after he's given Ferguson everything he's asked for?

A worrying thing is that shortly before DMac came in the end of season league table looked like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005%E2%8 ... League_Two If you look closely more than half of the teams have been relegated to non-league and four of them YES four don't exist anymore. One or other of those fates would surely have awaited The Posh had he not stepped in.

To be fair Bristle, none of us have any idea if another buyer/owner wasn't available at the time. We also have no idea if anybody is waiting in the wings now.

It's a little narrow minded to say we would definitely have gone out of business if it wasn't for MacAnthony.

We do know that if there was, he or they may have stepped in to save Rushden or Darlington in preference
