some good stuff although he is unduly kind about the town :lol:
The game against Gillingham in 1974 is still, for me, one of the most 'atmospheric' games at London Road. Since then, I have to agree with virtually everything that James Bloodworth has posted in his blogg!

I don't know but at least they realise it was against the imposters that walker impressed :lol:
Exactly. It was a good team goal involving Walker, Maddison, a superb ball back to Walker and an incisive through ball forward to Toney who took a short but excellent touch onto Madden who finished in style. Walker will struggle in this team unless the long ball tactics are not reduced. Nothing wrong with that except it needs to be interspersed with passing football of some description. That goal and Naismith's attempt in the first half were the only two pieces of teamwork that really worked on Saturday.
That was deliberate right? :lol:
No, not at all. Godden of course! Now corrected! A touch of the 'old git syndrome' nipped in there. I'm sure you know exactly what that is like!
Looking forward to seeing how Zakuani copes with Godden and Cummings! :D

With lots of honest effort, last ditch tackles, headers straight up in the air and limited success.
However he'll get and fully deserve a good reception from all the POSH present.

Looking at that side any result from losing 2-0 to winning 7-2 would not be a surprise, lets hope for the latter.

Excellent result, after trying to throw it away, at 1-2 we needed a flash of brilliance which we got from Dembele, Maddison and Toney to turn it to 3-2, as we should have had a penalty in the first half, we could have thrown it away again when a petulant unnecessary kick from Marmite could have, nay shale have earned a straight red and we could have been in for a difficult few minutes with ten men. Such a shame as that was probably his best ever performance in a Posh shirt.

Same score against the same opponents as 1974 and that wonderful match at London Road when we clinched the Div 4 title (that’s League 2 to you young ‘uns) under the late, great Noel Cantwell. Still remember Eric Steele balancing and dancing on the wall in front of th Dirctors’ box about 2/3 of the way up!

Hopefully this side can emulate it. Just need our home form to match our amazing (so far) away form.

He also came over to us at full time and presented Nipper with his match shirt. Good old boy! :clap2:

If you were once again referring to Maddison you need to eat humble pie. He had two assists and was involved in all four of the goals.
Also Jamie Walker was superb, a contender for MOTM and Cooke, who came on late in the game, immediately got involved and scored the fourth goal. Toney showed just how effective he could be all game and the chances of Evans dropping him in the near future are nil! Taff once again sustained another head injury and failed to appear after the break but Yorwerth was a very able replacement, in fact I would put him in front of Bennett when Taff returns.
The players we have at the club ATM have shown that they CAN play football without resorting to the long ball approach. Some of the skills shown by Dembele, Toney and Maddison, to name a few, were outstanding and the passing was crisp and incisive. It was a total opposite to the very poor showing last week against Portsmouth.
Pity that the weather conditions for the faithful were so appalling - but it always seems to be like that at Gillingham whenever Posh turn up!

Which part of that was deserving of eating humble pie

Do you honestly think that sort of thing should be allowed in football, if a player from another side had done it to one of ours you would have been screaming blue murder

It happens all the time unfortunately in modern professional football. I'm not condoning it, I didn't even spot the incident; it just seems that you are determined to undermine one of the league's most talented footballers no matter what the lad does! Just what is your agenda?
