That’s a disaster. In total command & then completely outdone by their halftime sub.

Makes Lincoln incredibly difficult now as all the pressure on us.

It was a disaster. But Lincoln have to win three games including Posh and Charlton. Charlton will still be hoping for a play off place.
We only have to win (or even draw) one more game.

Short memory syndrome, we did the double in 2015/16 mind you we had some excellent players then the winner coming in injury time by Ricardo Santos away from London Rd

Mind you, two nil up & we should have been able to see that out.

Two nil up, hit the bar twice, missed goodness knows how many sitters and when one of their players caught the ball played keepy uppy with his hands for about two minutes before throwing the ball out of the area and not being awarded a stonewall penalty.

We still only play 45 minutes, first half good, second half total dross. We got what we deserved. Now we wait until Saturday, exciting 'aint it?

For the first time, it seemed to me that the pitch impeded our play; the players must have had fond recollections of the playing surface at The Valley.

Professional athletes shouldn't need 'bulletin-board material', but fewer fireworks and less talk of Christmas Eve wouldn't come amiss on Saturday.

I thought we looked a bit knackered after the first 30 minutes and the press was less intense and effective. Maybe the Charlton game took more out of us than we realized. 1 point from home games against Gillingham and Doncaster has us limping over the line a bit but, we are in a great position and should be a cracking game on Saturday. The pitch is disgraceful and doesnt help at all. Champagne on ice for Saturday :clap:

Just one point to get on next Saturday.
I think team could believe that will be easy yesterday. And nothing will be until the end.
And Lincoln to get automatic promotion has to win all matches and one of them is against Charlton. Charlton has a place to keep in the playoffs.

I don't think it has hindered us at all. At the beginning of any game it plays true without the 'bobbles' that you get from an all grass pitch. It has been rolled and watered between games and we have done very well on it since the mains water leakage way back to the beginning of January. We have won 10 games on that 'lousy' pitch, drawn 3 and only lost to Gillingham and Hull. As time goes on during a game the turf does tend to get churned up a bit, especially as it did against Donny and an incredible 'downpour!'

We are the best team in the league but the pitch hasn't helped and I think Fergie would agree wholeheartedly...we were always going to be winning games but, as many have said, we have been far from convincing and dominant in many games and, certainly not over a full game...

Just my opinion, but I think it must have helped, other teams come along and they don’t get the opportunity to get used to playing on it. Surfaces and distances make big differences, take as an example cricket where teams create the pitch to suit their own players, in India they like to play with spin and against spin so they take the pitch down so that it is very soft and dry allowing the surface to break up and crack, giving an advantage to the spinners, whilst in this country where we rely heavily on fast bowling we want the pitches hard with grass so the ball goes through quicker. It’s a huge advantage for the home nation. Likewise the London Road pitch although it probably doesn’t suit a decent footballing side, we are more used to the pace and the quirks of the way the ball behaves on it.

I think you have hit the nail firmly on the head. It doesn't look good but it has benefitted Posh quite a lot since it went awol!
Watch nearly all League One games and pitches, in general, are superb. Opposing teams are not well adjusted to play on our pile of mud! However, I do hope that the pitch will be sorted, back to its original superb surface, before the start of next season! A lot of dosh has been spent on it in the last two seasons.
