Interesting: a start for PUFC now merits a full cap?

Re: Upcoming 'ins' and 'outs'

It would be a little surprising if the signing of a forward 'in the latter stages of a recovery from a hamstring injury' (PET) to join two other forwards (Marriott and Randall) unavailable due to hamstring injuries didn't cause a few eyebrows to be raised and lips to be pursed.

Lest we forget, 2021 ('the last one') brought promotion.

I lived in Singapore for many years, and in my (therefore informed) opinion, virtually everything that is done there in the guidance and management of societal behaviour is preferable to that which I experience here.

Re: Flying bullets

At the end of the day he is the one paying out the wages so in a way he is permitted to say whatever he wants. Whether this is always advisable is another question! Few people warm to the boy in the park who seeks to dominate proceedings because he owns the ball. I certainly agree with you that unb...

Re: Half-Term Report

Nor do we. Currently our Championship average home attendance is 10,140 -- There isn't, obviously, a direct correlation between average attendance and success. Second-placed Bournemouth attract 10,010, fourteenth-placed Luton get 9,922, while 19th-placed Blackpool average 11,859. Coventry, in eight...

Re: Half-Term Report

I can tell your not a happy bunny, we are Posh, we play in a certain manner and have done for most of the past twenty years. As you say teams have worked out what they are, picking out individuals for criticism is not helpful. Especially when Edwards and Norburn are currently our best two players. ...

Re: Half-Term Report

It's all about opinions and if you talk to maybe 90% of Posh supporters, getting rid of Darragh or Darren is a non starter! I wouldn't claim to speak for 90% of Posh supporters, and I was not/am not advocating 'getting rid' of Darragh. (How that might be effected I'm not quite sure.) I'm not of the...

The chairman has shared some testy observations, according to the PET: Peterborough United chairman lets rip at ‘disgraceful’ away record, his toothless team and certain individual players also cop it Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has urged the club’s players to ‘get together and b...

I agree with most of your points in the reply although you avoided addressing the points made in my 5 paragraphs. I'm a supporter who thinks that DM regenerated our club, invested in it and brought delight to posters on here. I agree that reckless signings will get us into financial trouble. What I...

And what you've failed to do is respond to my 5 paragraphs in the original post. It's not hard. Let me try. This is a football forum, not a therapy forum for berieved nuns.

You are probably right about that - plus of course he was a superb 'snow shifter!' :D
When it came to commitment, he had it in spades.

Re: POSH v READING

Ryan Bennett? In our present plight, I think I'd select Zakuani or Tafazolli or Steven Taylor ahead of Edwards -- that's not the same as claiming that they are better players. This is not meant in any sense to be a criticism of Edwards; in my 'First Quarter Report' I posted 'Burrows and Edwards don...

Re: Half-Term Report

If our 'snake head' is cut off, then plunging out of the EFL is not necessarily a likely consequence, and given what Luton, Coventry and Blackpool seem to have done, it would be eminently possible to not just survive but prosper at Championship level. It's all about opinions and if you talk to mayb...
