I said in the general football thread that Shrews looked like a rugby team. I didn't expect them to play like one. They were hauling the Posh players down many a time and how their number 4 didn't get sent off I don't know. Good result for Posh though and I didn't see anything special about the league leaders, except a very physical team who can't shoot.
A moment of magic from magic. :clap2:

I thought we made hard work of what should have been an easier victory....We couldn't find the second goal and were hanging on a bit in the end against a side that offered little goal threat.

We're half a team...For every Anthony Grant (outstanding again today) there's an Andrew Hughes.

We desperately need two proper wing backs...as well as a partner for Marriott, who's lost up front on his own.

If ever there was a game between 2 potential middle of the road/table sides....this was it.

If ever a goal deserved to win a game then it was todays winner, can't wait to see if it looks as good on TV as it did at the game.
Here it is.

A big powerful strong and physical side, unbeaten and will remain so come 5pm next Saturday.
I can't see anything else than another home defeat here.
Every team has to come a cropper sooner or later. This game could be Shrewsbury's turn.
It's a must win for McCann and a must win for most of us on this message board.

Maybe you think that the whole league is made up of potential middle of the road/table sides. (except for Wigan who even only managed a draw today)

It's comforting that you were wrong about today's game and that you don't see Posh and Shrewsbury as fighting it out for a relegation spot.

Seems like a long time since we had a nail-biter at London Road.
I so wanted us to take a punt when their keeper kept abandoning his goal. We we unlucky not to score more.
Walking back to my car through all the miserable Shrews fans was a pleasure :D
I was still grinning into the bottom of my brandy glass late into the evening.

Hope Grant changes nothing for next Saturday :comeon: :comeon:
We go again...

It shows how expectations are these days, with some of us who didn't even think we'd beat Shrewsbury....and others just about wetting themselves over the fact we have done.

:stupid:
If we're absolutely honest, all of us thought it would be a tough game to win.
And if we're absolutely honest, we should all be pleased that we did win.
Unfortunately, there are some on the message boards who were so convinced that we would lose that they are disappointed to be wrong. And see it as a small hiccup in McCann's reign coming to an end.

Can't be me fortunately, as I'm on ignore. Can't tell you what a relief that is.

Good to see Grant's now a genius after winning a game though.

I do wonder taking out a goal that gets better every time I watch it what all our thoughts would he on the game and performances if we had drawn 0-0.
Would it have been a good point or two dropped?
