I've never been as hurt by a Posh performance as I was yesterday. They've spent two months building us up and then...that. Actually feel depressed.

I wouldn't say never been so hurt, however I feel totally deflated after yesterdays performance. I feel this now sets the tone for the rest of the season,

Spot on this.

You see what happens on the pitch, why do you need GM to TELL you what happened on the pitch? He's got it wrong, other managers have out witted him.....he is a rookie who talks a lot and YOU know it.

I don't need him to TELL me, but am interested in his public views on the issues

take it or leave it

Pretty sure Stuie only posted a link? Unless there's some hidden text that only you can see?

I think GM made a mistake when he took off Hughes. Danny Lloyd should have probably come on for Miller although he was trying hard. Danny Lloyd actually played really well when he came on. Posh have done enough at the start of this season for me to suggest they will come back and win games again. Blaming players like Miller (calling him Joe Gormley ?) when it was defensive mistakes that cost us the match is a bit unhelpful.

I agree and using defenders as marauding wingers is asking too much of a human body. They can't do both efficiently.

To me several things have to happen, we need to go four at the back, on that everyone seems to agree, we need to have an attacking midfield player that can slip balls through or beyond oppo defences, and if that logically is to be MM, then GM needs to stop allowing him to drift out wide, if he does that, especially with two holding players it will plug the huge void that recently exists in the middle of the park. This in turn should prevent, or at least restrict the amount of times teams run straight through us which is happening with annoying and increasing frequency.
Without an offensive midfield partiuclarly when playing FB's as WB's our final ball is increasingly becoming longer and higher and with the size of Marriot and Miller its not going to work, in fact isn't working, we need more of the kind of ball grant played for our goal yesterday.
That said I also feel we need to toughen up a bit as we have lost more possession and 50/50 balls in the last three games than we have all season.
