Poshies v Oxford

Postby Chompy » 07 Mar 2017, 01:48

Someone had to start it!

We now have ten cup finals left. Eleven wins should see us reach the top six.

The striker with no confidence has left on loan to a non-league giant, leaving the one with no confidence, the one straining for his 100th goal and playing with no confidence, and Junior.

We haven't beaten 11 men since 2009.

Oxford-Oxford HT-FT at a touch over 3-1 looks the bet to me.

Crowd of 4,000 odd, most of whom will be there out of a weird sense of duty rather than anything else, and who won't really be bothered. Flat atmosphere, early goal for the away side, and we'll all be home in time for the A-Team.

In my opinion (and not to be taken too seriously)-
Stuie might post a :stupid:
Nipper might tell us that it's still mathematically possible for us to make the play offs.
Super will definitely agree with you and might add a few negative points of his own.
Bristle will probably say something like "Yes but"
Ashman and Brian will ignore it, so might DaveLister and everybody else.
As for me, I agree that if we win our remaining games we should make the top six.
I agree about the strikers. I've been saying we need a striker for yonks.
I agree that the crowd will be between 4000 and 5000. But I believe that the poshies among them will be fans who follow through thick and thin and most of them will be cheering the Posh on to a win.
I think that if you back Oxford-Oxford HT-FT at a touch over 3-1 you will do your dough.
Being happy never goes out of style.

Great news that you've been saying we've needed a striker for yonks. Ahead of the curve as per.

The Club Management still has not 'cottoned' on though. :cry:

So, there's a game Saturday? ...Hope someone remembers to let the players know.

Grant...."I can promise the fans this season won't fade away under my watch" ...McCann, has..erm...seen the season fade away under his watch.

He knows it's a dead duck...but has to make the right noises. There's season tickets to flog and believe it or not
there'll be a few Posh fans that are stupid enough to dream the impossible.

In fact...50 points from the last 10 games and we can still win this league lads.

Seems to me GM is getting quite an easy ride currently given recent events.

Down to the fact he's seen as a Posh legend by many fans and the chairman which has earned him plenty of kudos.

Reality is...He's not fared much better than Dangerous or Westley.

Big season for him coming up.

Guess he'll give it another few games, until it's mathematically impossible, and then start bringing in a few of the kids and reserves, Chettle, Freestone, Dangermouse etc.

I'd be happy for him to do that now...and start sending the loan players back.

He has gone 'off' a bit as well Nick.!!!!!! Big savings if he returns.

It won't be Brian...

These loans deals last until the end of the season...So we would still be paying his wages until then.
