3-0, Danny Lloyd with his second. Bury down to 10 men.

Workmanlike but effective against a pretty but ineffective opponent.

At no stage did it feel like we weren't winning this game, but we were a long way from our best. Good sign I guess.

Granty outstanding again. Maddison and Marriott would walk into any L1 side, including Wigan, and Lloydy has stepped up and then some.

Darragh's always going on about players grabbing their opportunities and Lloyd has done that alright. He won't be going anywhere in January. A lot's changed since he requested being listed.

Almost got through half-time without a burst of Seven Nation Army too.
9-2 Posh, 5-2 Draw, 4-7 Leicester

Pretty much agree there Chompy. Thought Grant was below par today by his standards.

We do have a problem in midfield as Doughty and Anderson were both non-existent again.

Not sure Anderson is a footballer any more.

Two bad injuries seem to have done for him. Just awful from minute 1 to minute 45.

He, more than anyone, needs to get out on loan next month, probably to L2.

Dreadful game of football overall. Bury certain for relegation.

It was said on what little I got of the game that Anderson was lazy and disinterested, and your appraisal coincides with theirs. Assuming he's still a Posh player at the end of January, of course.

The most flattering 3-0 victory I've ever seen...

We were shocking first half....led by the woeful Anderson...and were happy to sit back let them boss midfield and take a few pot shots from distance. We were very lucky to go in 1-0 ahead for sure.

A slight improvement second half...thanks to Maddison and the fact they went down to ten men...again thanks to Maddison.

MM man of the match...the best footballer on show by a country mile. Penny put in a decent shift although he...like Hughes...isn't the quickest and looks more a centre back to me. Lloyd took his second goal superbly but I'm still not convinced that he's a long term answer.

So many issues remain with this group of players...and we've found nothing new out about any of them today.

A worrying detail from today's commentary was from the expert (?) Francis Green, I believe, who said Anthony Grant is coming to the end of his career. That is a worry because he seems to have been our outstanding player this season, and at 30 I'd have thought he had a few seasons left.

It would if he knew what he was talking about! Based on the fact our midfield is Forrester, Leo, Anderson and Doughty there's not a great deal there really

I don't watch games on the radio but....

I guess he means Grant has more seasons behind him than he does ahead of him

I listened to it in bed again and I think the Radio Cambs commentators are hopeless.

They did nothing but complain during the first half. We were very lucky to be 1-0 ahead at half time. In fact they thought Bury should’ve been ahead.
They moaned about Anderson the whole time and I can’t remember hearing Marriott’s name mentioned in the first half.
Francis Green spent a lot of the time telling us how good Francis Green was.
He thought that Bury played magnificently and were sure to avoid relegation if they kept playing that way.
It seems to me that had they not gone down to 10 men we would have been lucky to win.
They liked Lloyd who only asked for a transfer to get more playing time.

I’m just pleased that we won.

Oh. And reading between the lines of the commentary I'd make Lloyd or Grant Man of the Match.
Being happy never goes out of style
