    I jokingly suggested a new contract.

    I'm scared I may have been correct.

    My problem with McCann, well one of them anyway, is his defeatist attitude. If you want to be successful, you talk positively, challenge underperformance by all means but don’t highlight your own fears EVER. I wouldn’t follow him to the door never mind into battle. For Gods sake man stop being so pathetic!

    I’d say all 3, but more than ‘a bit’.

    Memberships have fallen in recent times due to Covid, not McCann. Whether that’s right or wrong, I’d be fairly certain that’s the judgement the Allams have made - otherwise McCann would have been replaced.

    Well yes, if returning to the Championship pays the best return for the minimum risk, then that will be a secondary objective. It will never be the Allams prime motive though, that will always be to extract as much as they can from the club. I didn’t make that point very well earlier.

    When using a big stick to beat the Club and Current Manager(given the current form,some of it's justified),the vast majority of posters on here would use the "we've got the best team in this League"," we are underperforming given the players we have",would you agree that this is a fair comment?

    I'm just finding it difficult to understand why Allam bothered spending a single coin if the prime objective is to stay at this level,in this League and 'milk' the Club for everything he can?

    I have just listened to McCann again and you get the impression that he is a man who is so secure that he can say just what he likes. It’s the only reason you can think of that he could say such a thing. It’s so defeatist at this stage but clearly what he thinks. If the mindset of the team is being set by him what can we expect when they go behind. Well we’re losing this one but we will win the next. This setting targets bullshit really riles me too. The target should be to win every game. I know it’s unrealistic but it still should be the target. I don’t like Swannys obvious bullshit but he is right about leaders in the team. Inspiration and motivation are one of the largest factors in football at any level. I just don’t see any evidence of it at City.

    when he says he's focused on getting out of this division, we can be forgiven thinking which direction he is trying to get out

    Grant was called in this week and from what I am led to believe it wasn't a pleasant meeting and expectations where made abundantly clear along with the ramifications if those expectations where not to be hit

    Well, if that press conference was the result of getting a bollocking I just wonder what expectations he's been asked to meet!

    It definitely seems like McCann has hit a turning point in the last couple of weeks when it comes to City fans.

    Up until this latest poor run of form, you’d still find the odd fan here and there backing him and most disliking him but not calling for him to go too much.

    It now feels that most want him gone ASAP. That pressure is going to be very difficult to survive, even with an empty stadium.

    Per the meeting with Ehab, I expect Terry 'Asbestos' McCann was given a points target to hit over the next 3 games. To gain promotion / play-offs - he needs to achieve an average of 2pts per game or better. If he doesn't hit the target then I would hope that Ehab would hopefully think I've got a useless pair of ****s in charge here and boot them out. Remember, Ehab did support McCann with a decent recruitment drive over the January window and the pts per game average is nowhere near the required target.

    Ehab probably told him he hadn't pissed enough of us of yet.

    Don’t suppose you know how long he’s got? I’m hoping they didn’t reference 24 hours.

    “we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender”
    However, if we don’t manage that we will try again next year!
