    As some have said on here, Grant might of been told by the current owners to play 433 as it is the Hull City way?. When the new owner takes over, how would you feel if he actually kept Grant for a while to prove himself and let him do what he wants with the team and judge him after a few games?

    If we keep hammering our relegation rivals, I'd be delighted.

    Any new owner who does that is potentially undermining their opportunity, and risking a degree of backlash from the supporters. Terrys results at Championship level are probably the worst on record. Clean slate all round please from day one!

    It would be just be delaying the inevitable , will want his own man in , so as soon as we lost a couple he’d be out , so might as well just pull the plug straight away and get it done

    I think it depends on the date of the reported take over, say for the sake of argument it was wrapped up in the next week or so, then having just won and with a month and a half until the transfer window, he'd sensibly get a few games to see what happens, the closer and closer it gets to the transfer window opening, the more at risk his position becomes

    He's been at games in the past month watching the club's own fans chanting 'sacked in the morning', he'll want rid as soon as he's in the door.

    What I would say is that when new owners come in, the sensible thing is to have stability. If they change everything quickly, then the likelihood is that it could go wrong.

    Until he gets into the workings are the culture of the club, probably to stick with him and support him in January. Trying to change too many things too quickly can be a recipe for disaster.

    You could be right, but I'm not sure that is the right thing to do. I'm as critical of McCann inability to change things during games as anyone, but buying a new club, you need some time to adjust to how things work, and maybe to stick with him until you get a feel for the place.

    As said several times, and by others, he (McCann!) is the wrong man for us.
    He either fully believes in the '4 3 3 philosophy' (for want of a better phrase) or if doesn't really believe in it then he hasn't had the balls to call out Ehab and Darnborough on it (or else is an incredible liar).
    So whichever it is, he isn't the manager / coach that this club and it's players need.

    An afterthought - had we not finally managed to score and win on Saturday, would anyone even be asking this question?! Him and Byrne have to go.

    It might depend on what his options are. If he's got nobody else lined up from day 1 he might think Grant is the most likely way of not dropping too many points while things get sorted.

    Too right, the table does not lie as it didn't last time when City were relegated in 24th place. Stick with McCann & we are as good as down to Div 1. Get rid ASAP & get a new management team in that can manage at Championship level. McCann can't & probably never will (Div 1 & 2 is his level)

    He's been in discussions with coaching candidates for weeks, if not months.

    McCann isn't the finished article. But if he finds himself back in the Championship with a competitive squad and a bit more experience under his belt then he may well surprise some in the future.

    Doesn't necessarily mean he's got a day 1 option though.

    The more I think about it there more I think it's just that he's not cut out for a relegation scrap. He doesn't have the pragmatism to grind out results. He gets very few draws and almost always loses when it's a close game. He's good for a top-end team who are fighting for promotion, as we saw last season, but not suitable for getting a smaller club within a division to overachieve. Same as Farke at Norwich.

    I was with you until the last line
    Farke did a great job in a budget and was treat shabbily by Norwich

    I’d have him here in a shot
