Ft, 2-2 it is. One win in six against the might of Bradford, Oxford and Shrewsbury.

Meanwhile, Doncaster won 3-0 today to sneak into the playoff places. Whatever happened to their manager?
i think he drew four games on the trot

It was not a particularly good day at the office but still a great away day. It was freezing. It was wet and it was windy. :x
Their 1st goal wasn’t fair cos we weren’t ready. Not sure Chapman had even checked out where the goalposts were. :shock:
We clearly looked tired.
IMO we should have started Walker. And some other fresher legs.
But credit where credit due, we didn’t stop trying. Good job we’re scoring some last minute goals. I don’t care if it was Bennett or Taff, it was just such so brilliant to see the ball in the back of the net. :clap: :clap:
For the record, I will always always clap the lads off. :clap2: :clap2:
The nutters still wearing shorts were out in their numbers yesterday. Mowlesey, Des, BOOglee (something like that :mrgreen: ) and Lenny ..... take a bow. :clap: My knees didn’t recover until much much later in the day.

I’m thankful for a point. For sure, we’re happier with a point than they were with theirs

:comeon: :comeon: :comeon:
We go again...

A very good point. Tiredness is no excuse. We were once again second best to a poor team and hardly deserved the point, other than to say that we didn't give up and kept going to the last minute. It would help if, when we are defending, that instead of always just hoofing the ball forward, we actually brought the ball down and played it sensibly to another blue (or white) shirt. The number of times that the ball simply just comes pinging back at us from those situations is ridiculous. Why can't we seem to work this out? It makes the opposition look better than they are and gives them confidence to go forward at leisure!

...and did we see how angry SE was getting when they tried to pass to each other, beggars belief that this man thinks you can win games in the third tier of English football by playing hoof ball. I'm surprised that DMac keeps defenbding the indefensible

100% agree mate.

The one time we played some football we set Godden up with what looked like a sitter but sadly he hit it too well.
A miskick and it'd gone in.

Yes he should have scored, nobody knows that more than him but he took his goal well earlier.

DMac claims this is because Bradford got home to their beds earlier than Posh on Wednesday morning and were at home yesterday. Evans & his ‘mentally strong’ players can do no wrong in DMacs eyes, especially the average Daniel, Bennett & Chapman.

Shame McCann & his team didn’t receive the same backing on twitter rather than be slated all the time.

Grant was backed on social media and in the press by the chairman, so far as I know the two remain on very good terms.

You'll find that McCann was sledged by Evans, not Darragh.

.... and that is the truth of the matter Dave. Evans having a go at McCann is starting to come home to roost! Posh 7 points in last six games, Doncaster 13 points!
