No, Gwion does.

Aah nuts, I'm on 'ignore'.

So it was a very good win because we beat a team that brought 800 fans and a bell?

We just edged it against a team around the same level as us, that's all.
Made me chortle.

Similarly, this forum has 80 fans and several bells.

Wow, it's almost like you didn't get the joke in the first place?

You are correct, it wasn't much of a joke to be fair
I started a joke that had the whole world crying

Ricky Miller on the bench.
I'm surprised that nobody seems to have commented on this.
Will he come on and score a couple of goals?
Well, I wasn't the only one who was surprised!
Alan Swann commented on it -
Striker Ricky Miller was a surprise inclusion in the Peterborough United matchday squad for tonight’s 2-1 win over Portsmouth at the ABAX Stadium (November 21). Miller is due in court tomorrow to answer charges of using threatening behaviour, assaulting a police officer and failing to provide a specimen of breath, and had been expected to stay away from the football club until the matter had been dealt with. He was an unused substitute tonight. Posh boss Grant McCann said: “Ricky remains one of our group and we will give him all the support he needs. There has been stuff going on people don’t need to know about, but we are determined to give him all the help we can. “He has been away from the club with his own fitness trainer who has been working with a programme we gave him. The plan was always going to be to bring him back to the club yesterday and take things from there.”
But he wasn't needed.
Changing tack slightly, it just me or do others feel Mr Swan is more than a tad bias (or worse blinkered) with his player assessments?
There are some, Taylor, Edwards, Madison to name but three of about half a dozen who regardless of how they pla, he appears to drool over with a never question or criticise undercurrent, yet others he is almost relentless in both his indifference towards them and worse quite dismissive of their contribution.
I know its all subjective, but we as fans all watch the same game and yet so opposite are his opinions that at times I question whether he is even there

Correct, although he does attend games - but so does Adi Mowles! :wink: :lol:

Too late though.
I found it in the Telegraph.
(It's good to see that he realises he's on ignore)

I reckon Swann's been pretty much bang on all season.

I don't think he shows bias to anyone....If anything he's over critical.

If Posh bias is what floats your boat though....Tune into Phil Adlam on Posh match day live as well as listening to him interview McCann.

Alan Swann attends Posh matches because he's paid to. Well known he's been a Leeds fan since the 70s.

That's a bit unfair, he's employed by the club and is on club duty 24/7 he will hardly risk his job by being critical of anyone.

As SuperPosh80 said 'he's over critical!' I wonder why? :wink:
