You have a very poor knowl­edge of foot­balll

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Of Sport - M. Man­gan Her­itage Court

I wish to point out your forec­sat­ing and knowl­edge of foot­ball is very poor. This is putting it mildy.

You failed to take Le­ices­ter very se­ri­ously last sea­son. As a re­porter in the Daily Mail said ‘only a fool wouldn’ t take them se­ri­ously.’

You changed your mind fre­quently about Le­ices­ter’s play­ers. You said no team with W es Mor­gan and Robert Hu th in it could win the Premier League’.

You men­tioned Clau­dio Ranieri ‘slaugh­tered ref­er­ees’ when the re­al­ity is he won the Premier League with a lot more dig­nity than Wenger, Fer­gu­son or Mour­inho.

And at the end of the sea­son, your jeal­ousy came forth, ig­nor­ing Le­ices­ter’s won­der­ful sea­son and say­ing their tri­umph was‘ bad for foot­ball ’.

You also didn’t have a good word to say about Northamp­ton. In­stead you pro­moted fric­tion, trib­al­ism and bad feel­ing among sup­port­ers.

Your dou­ble stan­dards are very shal­low. Yous aid Gra­ham West­ley would win pro­mo­tion for Posh, and then called him out when it suited you.

Your an­nual fore­cast­ing of Posh re­sults was dis­as­trous.

If you con­tinue in jour­nal­ism I sug­gest you try not to mix it with the big boys and in­stead spend your time re­port­ing on lo­cal un­der12, 13 and 14 teams in school sports.
