He brought him in to replace Anthony Grant who was twice the player Woodward will ever be. Imagine having he and Thompson in the same team, we’d be invincible, he also let Taylor go, which was also unforgivable.

:lol:
Brilliant bit of rewriting history.

Grant was a plodder midfielder who fell over all the time. Taylor was finished.

Where did they both go after Posh? Always a true marker of a player.

Grant still playing league one, Taylor was not finished had at least one more season left in him at our level.

So Grant is playing for Swindon who are one place above Wimbledon. He & Woodyard have had almost identical careers. If Grant was as good as you are making out, they wouldn't have had identical careers - very simple.

Steven Taylor was finsihed else he would have been snapped up by a club at least as good as Posh - very simple.


Jeez. It's like teaching four year olds the very basics of football.

Taylor was a good snow shoveler with a great set of teeth...he was finished. Grant was average at best (not a good squad influence allegedly) - Woodyard was all the rave at Lincoln and came with a lot of promise...unfortunately, he was/is crap......

Taylor went to play in the Australian League for New Zealand's Wellington Phoenix and is now playing in the Indian Super League.
I wonder what happened to Buckley-Ricketts, Colin Daniel, Darren Lyon (edit, now plays in the 4th tier in Scotland), Aaron Chapman, Rhys Bennett, Daniel Lafferty, Kyle Dempsey, Jamie Walker, Callum Cooke, Sebastian Bassong amongst others oh and not forgetting those diamonds Tyler Denton and Josh Yorweth.

Although in fairness to cuddly Uncle Stevie he did sign Toney (who sat on the bench whilst Jason Cummings started), Dembele & Ben White

Certainly true about Taylor, he was past his best when Posh released him.

But it has to be pointed out that Evans replaced him with the comical Rhys Bennett.

and thought the best way to replace the sold Andrew Hughes was with the mentally strong Colin Daniel :wink: :wink:

And, despite signing all of this trash, Evans still had Posh in the play-offs....are you suggesting he is a very good manager as it is difficult to understand your point?

And one of the biggest reasons for us being in the playoffs was the assists and goals of Marcus Maddison, who certainly wasn't signed by Evans.

Evans Posh team eventually showed their flaws, and as soon as Ferguson came along and actually tried to coach a bit of football into them, their limitations were exposed

Oh, so it was Maddison.....I guess that's like saying Fergie had CMS, Boyd and Mclean who he didnt sign or Dembele or Toney....sorry but this debate is over...you all agree that Evans is a good lower league manager and so is Fergie....

I think that most fair minded people will agree that Evans is a football manager. His sidekick Paul Raynor is out of the same mould and between them they are characters that can not be tolerated for very long by club chairmen and fans alike.
