At the One-third Marker....

Despite the fact that winning our game in hand would elevate us to a play-off place in the League One table, there are few grounds for optimism for the remainder of the season. Since Morais departed the field, we have played seven games in all competitions. The record reads: p7 W1, L 3, D 3; F 6 A 1...

Re: Michael Doughty

I wouldn't mind if he never played for us again. Like many of his team-mates, he embarrassed both himself and the club yesterday. Compare his impact with that of Chris Forrester when the Irishman first arrived here in a new country, stepping up a couple of divisions in class. Are we happy with Dough...

Re: Southend v Posh

Maybe Bristol Rovers could be prevailed upon to loan us Tom Nichols.

Re: ex poshies

Tom Nichols missed a penalty at Sixfields today, bringing him to a total of no goals in fifteen appearances for Bristol Rovers this season. Rovers didn't have much trouble scoring, though, rattling in six unanswered goals against the team which beat us on Tuesday.

Re: Poshies v Wigan

I wasn't overly reassured by Baldwin's return to the colours. He had his habitual 'left-for dead' moment when he missed a challenge on the half-way line, and needed a good save by Bond to bail him out. More worryingly, for Wigan's equaliser he just seemed to lose his man at the back post.

Re: Posh v Bradford City

I'm not sure we know if the ostensibly formidable teams will give us more trouble than the apparently weaker teams against which we've struggled in recent seasons. Most would have identified eventual winners Sheffield United and runners-up Bolton as powers in the division last season, but third-plac...

Re: New contracts for Maddison and Jermaine

Having seen them I'll give him ten out of ten for both passes, goal 3 was beautiful, still a lot for Jack to do but I assume that was an assist, the other was not although he took the penalty well. According to The Times the team of the week our best player, or at least the only one in the team was...

Re: New contracts for Maddison and Jermaine

'Nil assists'? Maddison's first-time pass set up Marriott's goal at Sixfields. To lie about verifiable facts doesn't promote clarity of discussion. Not a deliberate lie, I assure you, I watched the wonderful C5 highlights, I think the only thing they showed was the keeper hooking the ball out of th...

Re: Northampton v Posh 26/8/17

From the Northampton Chronicle and Echo: It could have been the day when the Cobblers' faltering season finally spluttered into life; instead their fortunes plunged to a desperate new low as they were easily swatted aside by an efficient but hardly outstanding Peterborough outfit who barely broke sw...

Re: New contracts for Maddison and Jermaine

Perhaps a touch of realism needs adding to this thread, his attitude undoubtedly has improved, but to suggest we will fall apart without him is over egging it. In four successful games he has contributed nil assists and one goal in a game already won. This from a man who still takes every corner an...

Re: ex poshies

Souleymane Coulibaly is reported to be AWOL from Al Ahly, thus becoming the latest in a presumably short line of professional footballers who pine for the bright lights of Kilmarnock as opposed to those of Cairo.

Re: ex poshies

Bobby Olejnik didn't get off the Exeter bench to face Blackpool's Kyle Vassell and Jack Payne in the League Two play-off final.

Joe Lewis had an excellent game for Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Final, but was beaten at his near post by Celtic's injury-time winner.

Re: ex poshies

Gerard Lyttle replaces Dave Robertson as manager at Sligo Rovers following an 'amicable' launching of the moonman. Apparently Lyttle was briefly on the books at London Road before the turn of the century.

Re: ex poshies

Coulibaly has moved to Cairo, but to Al Ahly, not cross-town rivals Zamalek. We let him go for nothing, but the Egyptian club are reported to have paid £800,000 for him. A sell-on portion of that would have been welcome. He scored six goals in twenty-seven League One appearances for us last season. ...

Re: ex poshies

With DR Congo down to ten men already, an injured Gabriel Zakuani hobbled back onto the pitch for the final few minutes of his team's victory over Morocco in the African Cup of Nations.
