Re: Bob Higgins

Not really a matter that needs a celebratory emoji

The club have done the right thing by getting their statement out quickly. Crewe Alexandra looked absolutely appalling when they seemed to be in denial about Barry Bennell after he was sentenced.

Re: Pre-season games

I really doubt any of Forest's or our hooligans will go to the bother of flying over to La Manga for aggro.

I think Spurs fans paying a visit to Barnet is more likely and that also won't happen.

Re: Pre-season games

They are merely public training matches.

Anybody who attached any significance needs help.

Re: New Players

He seems to be winding himself up. I can't believe he hasn't noticed that the average number of points for Evans was declining from one game to the next. But I suppose Mr Miller could be that bloody minded. He'll be absolutely crucifying Fergie next season if there is a similar decline between Octob...

Re: New Players

It has got everything to do with it. Evans got off to great start that he couldn't sustain. We had twelve good matches from him and it ended with 13 where he averaged a point per game. That's what got him the sack. Anyway, your mind is closed on the matter. I know it will only be a tiny door but it ...

Re: New Players

Tell us how many points Fergie averaged for his 17 matches.

Now compare that with what Evans averaged for his final 17 matches.

I won't shout fact but I can spot a trend.

Re: Grant McCann

It must be noted that the points per game average of previous boss Steve Evans (1.66) would have yielded 76 points over a full season and a place in the play-offs, which is where Posh were sitting when he left. That’s an inconvenient fact for some when placed alongside Ferguson’s 1.41 points per ga...

Re: Most improved player - after Fergie's return

I’ll ask again but putting it another way. When Evans was sacked, did you expect the new manager to keep us in the play offs? Yes or no will do. no damage was done Again - WOW. A football club sacking their manager & expecting to go down the league table. It would be an all time first for any footb...

Re: Most improved player - after Fergie's return

Not really. The team was heading downwards, morale was poor, we only drew against Charlton thanks to a penalty save, changing managers at that point of the season with no time for transfers was effectively writing it off and looking ahead to next season, Fergie probably underestimated what he had ta...

Re: Blackpool v Posh

The one Blackpool trip I missed since 2000 was where Curtis Woodhouse bossed the match and we won to stay up in League One. I have never seen us win at Bloomfield Road.

I'll stay at home in the hope of another win.

Seems as though most fans go to social media which is where I've gone now.
I presume social media was also a bit dull.
