Peterborough reviews....

Postby ACDon » Sat Dec 30, 2017 10:25 pm

Hardly a classic for the neutral or football purist but a massive, much needed win for us. Plenty of passion, determination and professionalism on display out there today. Great to see so many old faces. Lets enjoy it!! :D

Any thoughts?

I think you’re underplaying it, AC.

One of the best days at Stadium MK, in my view.

Not really, it was a superb, heroic "backs to the wall" performance but for me some way off being one of the best days at Stadium MK.

IMO, todays result/performance further highlights just how poor the standard is in league 1 this season, could you imagine being down to nine players against Southampton, Wolves or Brighton a few years ago?

Total credit to our players today, they rolled up their sleeves, battled and got the much needed three points.

It's where we are and how we have been playing that makes it one of the best games. It is easier to win if you are winning like Posh (oophs) but the run we have been on and going down to 10 and then 9 players, makes the players performance and character so remarkable. It's up there in games that I will remember for a long time.

Most memorable league game since the one against Yeovil when we got promoted whilst trying to follow what was going on at Colchester - second only to Man U result.
Many supporters obviously feel much the same way as Club Red was 'standing room only' for the MOTM presentation and gave Chucks a tremendous reception when he appeared.
On some occasions the quality of the football is not what matters most, and yesterday was one of those occasions. :D

Totally agree, once we were down to 9 men the game was over as far as a spectacle for the neutral was concerned, it was all about a rearguard action, which we executed superbly. The sort of commitment, bravery and determination we saw yesterday has sadly been missing this season, but hopefully yesterday's performance will stand us in good stead for the coming games and is just the tonic we need before we play you know who in a couple of weeks time. :D

I would have thought the neutrals would have enjoyed it. The only trouble was with my eyesight, except for a few Chuk's forays, most of the 2nd half action was down the other end.

We shouldn’t have lost two men, but the rest put everything they had into that result. Gilbey was immense - led through sheer effort. Walsh and Sow have apologised I hope. I would’ve sent both off if I was the ref.

Shame Pawlett didn’t score. But then we should’ve had two penalties (pretty clear), strong case for a red against the lad who went studs up into McGrandles shin, and Agard was in our own half when released and judged offside. Ref was guessing most the time.

Huge fun and a match most of us will never forget.

Fans actually got applauded by Chuks. There’s a first.

Miserable night for the pish. :lol: :lol:

Sow only gets mentioned because of his sending-off but what about his performance prior to that? I thought he was playing better than in any other game I have seen him. He looked interested, was constantly running into space making himself available and good distribution when he got the ball. He has either had a good 'wake-up' rollicking from the coaching staff or perhaps just got his confidence back after his long injury.
Pity he got his marching orders just when he seemed to be getting his game together - at last.

I hadn’t spotted that so thanks for highlighting it LD.

I’m most pleased that Cisse has carried on where he left off before his injury. He has sussed this league and is a growing influence. I wonder whether his influence is equally positive off the pitch with players like Sow.
