Transfer Gossip

He looked really composed in L1 mainly because most teams would only play a single striker (especially at Macron). This gave him and Wheater loads of time on the ball and also both had cover if they made a mistake.

He looked totally out of his depth in championship though, quicker opposition, less time on ball. At times he looked absolutely frightened to death whenever he was anywhere near the ball. Most mistakes would be punished, leaving him with little confidence as season went on.

Decent player at L1 standard but certainly not good enough for championship.

Oh and that 'hamstring' in 1st few minutes at Blackburn......fuck off mate!

Fair enough but Beevers is proven at L1 and will be a loss to us IMO.

 

He's two years older, slower and hasn't had a good game in that entire time. We shouldn't lose any sleep

Agree on the hamstring.

Don’t agree with the beever bashers. Always gave 100% didn’t he? 

Except when he was on strike :)

seemed a nice lad with a lovely family.

out of his depth in championship but great in L1, now found his level n good luck to him. Nowt wrong with that. We took a chance but it didn’t work out.

those punted agricultural diagonal balls are coached, can be very effective in lower leagues but doesn’t look good in championship when it doesn’t work.

think our paths will cross again

I reckon more will land in L2 than L1. They were fuckin abysmal. If I was a L1 manager, I wouldn’t want Buckley, Donaldson, Wilson, Taylor, Grounds, Dyer. I’m sure there will be a couple of others I’ve forgotten about already. Soft arses

Underrated in the scoring department for me. Some of his goals, our strikers aren't capable of. Those at Southend, Bristol City, Millwall, if ALF had scored them we'd be raving. Passing let him down but no problem with him defensively, don't remember anyone running rings round him unlike for e.g. Taylor. No chance of replacing him on a free, big loss.

Wish him well. Always put a shift in for us and think he’d of been a big asset this season. Saying all that I’d not try and keep anyone who wants out with the shite gone on at our club the last couple of years

Peterborough are a funny sort of team. Seem to push the boat out every few years, gain the odd promotion then realise they are shit, bills need paying and sell everyone again.

Decent piss up though

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.

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

All he 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.
