The McCann Sacking - Right or Wrong Decision?

The McCann Sacking - Right or Wrong Decision?

<div style='background-color: #005abb;'><a href='' title='news'>headlines</a></div>

Peterborough United last night sacked manager Grant McCann but was it the right or wrong decision?

It is without doubt that as a player, Grant McCann was a legend at Posh and after making a lightning start as caretaker boss when taking over from Graham Westley, it looked like he might have the midas touch as a manager as well.

Sadly, after nearly two years in charge at Posh, he hasn`t been able to light the touch paper to send Posh soaring back to the Championship and after four draws on the bounce and just two League One victories in their last ten games, Chairman Darragh MacAnthony reluctantly called time in the hope that a change in manager will help Posh sneak into the play-offs.

In order to do that, Posh will need to go on a winning run similar to the one they started the season with which saw them reach the top of League One. Can they do that in their last 13 matches of the season?

They will certainly need to improve on the performance from the weekend draw with Wimbledon. Are most of the Posh players so out of form or was it a case of the players not playing for McCann? Whatever it may be, caretaker boss David Oldfield needs to work miracles starting from tomorrow when Posh entertain Walsall.

Opinions have been divided between Posh fans over the sacking of McCann but we have been disillusioned for a few weeks and after the latest draw thought McCann had lost the dressing room.

The following are other opinions from fans across the globe regarding the departure of McCann:
