Wheater can get to fuck for me, he was obviously the driving force behind the players strike.

All they had to do was say "Hands up who wants to play against Brentford?" we could have played the fixture with kids + whoever else who was willing to play and not be facing another points reduction for failing to play a game.

It's such a shame, cos he's been a good player for us, but he can fuck right off - cunt.

In contrast to ourselves  who haven't spent a decent fee (in realtion to turnover) since Anelka and we certainly haven't gambled on a striker on his way up. 

Sordell was supposed to be on the way up. And N'gog got starts!

There are about 2000 first team players in the 4 divisions. 1950 got paid on time. About 50 didn't. Bury and Macc couldn't strike as they needed every point and promotion/ stay up bonus going. Our players had no such incentive. As with any strike, do you support your work mates or cross the picket line? The other 1950 players may love to strike, may be mercaneries with no respect for their clubs. We don't know, nobody has failed to pay them for several months or asked them about striking. But it's best not to sign any of the other 1950 for next year, what if the ungrateful, lazy sods turn out to be another Wheater, Beevers, Connell or Ameobi? Where would that leave us?

Those players went on strike to make a point. In doing so they risked more punishment for the club next season. Knowing full well that most wouldn’t be here. Not getting paid was bad and all. But let’s be honest they won’t give a shiny shite what mess we are in as a result. Solidarity with fans and staff? No chance.

Seem to sign a striker from nowhere, sell him on and plug the deficit form two years at a time. Almost like it's a plan? 

See Tomlin, Lee; Assomobalonga Britt; and Marriott,Jack. 

Almost like a poor man's Burnley see Austin Charlie,  Ings, Danny, Gray, Andre. 

In contrast to ourselves  who haven't spent a decent fee (in realtion to turnover) since Anelka and we certainly haven't gambled on a striker on his way up. 

I've always been fascinated by how Posh have consistently signed strikers that should be playing at a higher level whilst we have consistently signed strikers that aren't fit to pull on a white shirt.  Add George Boyd, Craig Mackail Smith, Marcus Maddison 35 goals from midfield and countless assists, Aaron McLean, Conor Washington, Dwight Gayle. Yes we've had ALF (not picked though) but every other striker in the last 10 years bar Juke have been not just worse than a Div 1 team but far, far worse. Is it so hard to find these players, do we even try or are we so obsessed with holding midfielders?

But the point is, all 2000 players are probably of the same mind, they don't give a stuff. So who do we allow the privilege of playing for us?

Peterborough appear to have a good scouting and recruitment network that is able to consistently find gems from the lower leagues. We, on the other hand haven’t had decent recruitment since the days of BSA (bar a few decent signings by Megson)

It’s something that I hope new owners put in place, don’t think I can stand many more signings of washed-up journeymen.

A team full of Gary O'neills wouldn't have gone down.

A good signing yes, but for every Gary O'Neil there's a Marc Wilson, a Will Buckley a Lloyd Dyer and a Clayton Donaldson

Lets slag off the only player willing to run through a brick wall for the club. Rightly or wrongly only one i felt any connection with in this sorry bunch due to his seeming passion for the club since our Prem days as well. I say seeming coz i dont know him but he certainly looked like he cared and was leading by example.

As for the strike not blaming anyone other than Anderson for that. Good luck Wheater from me nowt against him at all

I agree with the sentiment, O'Neill was class and I'd have him back tomorrow, but we wouldn't have scored enough goals to stay up. Because we don't try to sign strikers who want to score and if we get one by mistake we don't play him. I would settle for just having a manager that wants a striker, actually finding one can wait.

Looks like the Pole has found another club.

Aye started like a guddon but was ragged at the end maybe trying to hard at the top of the pitch & not enough at the back.Still not the worst we had.

If either Buckley or Noone could cross a ball maybe his life might have been easier.

Have to say our recruiting has been poor other than the U16s in recent years and only a few of them will make it as professionals. Peterborough have also just signed a cracking young wing back from King's Lynn - only seen him once but he was the best player on the park by a country mile. Bench warmer at best for now, but next year...

There are some great young players about like that lad Hickey who played in the Scottish cup final last week at the age of 16 and totally looked the part. New owners need to sort the scouting out.

He's in the last year of his contract so if they don't sell him now, they risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time.

Madrid know this, so they'll try to bargain it down.

I know what you're saying though - on his day he's in the very top 3-4 players in the world.

We have 6 players under contract. Until the new owners are in place that is all we will have - and any of those can technically walk away for free if they choose. Lads out of contract will take offers elsewhere because well, they can't hang around and hope.
