NML scores a fine goal for Cardiff at Arsenal in the Premiership, while Ryan Bennett continues to impress at Wolves
whoever signed those two must be a good manager??!!
Didn't Gary Johnson sign NML?

Not necessarily. NML was given chance after chance when he was with us. He spent too much time on the weights in the gym and became almost muscle bound. He has since seen the error of his ways and is looking like the promising player he could have been!

And has had the support of better managers at Rochdale &Cardiff.

Not necessarily. All players develop at different rates. NML was very young when he was at Posh and was extremely immature. He nearly ran me off the road in Hampton in his white Mercedes which he was driving like an idiot in a 20mph zone!

Last night's televised match was a credit to League 1 football with Sunderland and Stanley serving up a feast. Baldwin was up to his old tricks though, giving away a penalty and getting the obligatory yellow card.

Trouble is it's actually what most people thought of him here, it's just that on our major forums we have two that are basically family forums, and the moderators just delete anything untoward the other you are not allowed to be anything other than towing the party line.

How many forums are you talking about? You say two are basically family forums and then " the other you are not allowed to be anything other than towing the party line" - which one is that?
By the way it's toeing not towing.

I blame my lack of an education, I was referring to this forum and the one on Facebook as family friendly.

Poor old Boydie. Sad to see him last night playing for Owls v Chelsea and studiously trying to avoid tackling anybody until he was subbed.
He was obviously asked to do a job of holding up attacks from the left hand side and did it admirably in my opinion. That is not what he is all about. He never was a particularly wonderful defender even in his prime. George's game is all about what he can do on the ball and in that game he was never going to stand much of a chance. He wasn't the only one in the Wednesday side who struggled against a very mobile and eventually successful side. The figures for possession of 79% Chelsea, 21% Sheffield bears this out.
Poor old Boydie was a lost soul last night in the harum scarum of the Sheffield derby match. He hardly had a touch of the ball. I wish he was back at Posh.

I feel gutted for Ryan Bennett ; Wolves 2-0 up in the 79th minute of the Cup Semi at Wembley but Watford came out top in extra time after being awarded a penalty deep into added time.

Boydie can do no wrong in my mind. He played totally to Managers instructions yesterday as a defending half back instead of an attacking midfielder on the left.
Exactly what I was getting at Brian. Poor old Poshay. We'll have to have a word at some time! :wink: :lol:
George back to his mercurial best! ..... and a 'headed' assist for Wednesday's first goal too!

No mention of another ex-Poshie who seems to have put on rather a lot of pounds and could compete with me in the weight stakes
