Posh v Rotherham

Anyway the Bristol Rovers game is a “must win” for McCann. I'm putting £4 on Posh to win. 9-4 sounds fair enough to me. £9 would buy a reasonable bottle of Quaffing Dry Red.
And it did. I’ll be sharing it with my wife with our BBQ lunch today.
Pepperback Shiraz.


On to the Rotherham game. This is not a must win. Just an “it would be great to get another win” game.
Posh 5/4
Draw 23/10
Rotherham 2/1

After Rotherham’s performance yesterday I’m guessing this might be a high scoring game with Posh scraping home. Maybe 5-4? (Just to match the odds on offer).

Unless someone has picked up an injury or gets sold it will be the same team.

Following our good start (in the league) and Rotherham's good win yesterday surely we'll see good support for both teams.
About 6543.

I'm sure that Taylor, Frecklington, Newell and Ball will be up for this one.

Over past seasons Im sure now and again many fans have been frustrated with the way certain players perform. None more so than Joe Newell who was bigged up to be the next George Boyd. It never happened of course and although he whipped in the occasional good cross this young man never achieved what we were promised. But at still only 24 btw, he is plying his trade with Rotherham. I hope he doesn't get booed though as did try try hard with us and a boo or two might be all the incentive he needs. Same with the other three. Let our own players do the talking.

No reason to boo any of them especially Jon Taylor who never gave less than 100% whenever I saw him play and always had time for the fans

Totally agree with you DoubleRay and DL, I always like to see ex Posh players do well when they move on (to a point) and with regards to Newell, apart from a Childish display at Wembley, I always felt he had far more potential than we saw, hopefully he won't deliver on Saturday.

We didn't see the best of him as Fergie insisted on playing him at FB as he used the narrow diamond and then Joe Newell ran his contract down and left us on a free - I don't him for that part alone!

Rotherham haven't won an away game since April 2016.

Quite right. But after Saturday they will still not have won an away game since April 2016.

Hold on to your hats!
Grant McCann reckons the club’s fans are in for a thrill-a-minute League One campaign.
McCann is excited with the way his positive side is shaping up after two wins in their opening two League One matches.
“We are full of confidence and raring to go after last week,” McCann stated.
“Rotherham will be one of the better teams in the division though so we will have to play to a similar standard to beat them."
