They may be whingeing about the decisions but if the roles were reversed so would we. But that's football. Yesterday was our day. Hopefully next time we'll win by playing scintillating ruthless football and get an indisputable scoreline.

A win is a win scruffy or scintillating football both get you 3 points

That's what I thought I saw, I reckon it's one of those where if enough people in the home crowd scream 'HANDBALL', it makes the ref/assistant think there's something in it. Happened so fast, no way the ref or assistant could 100% tell either way.

Derby fans are some of the most arrogant wankers going 

Even before they dropped into this league 

So fuck them 

They think they are the biggest club in the world because of their average attendance.

They're not even the top 2 biggest in this league, behind us and Pompey.

Only semi recent season in the Prem was their fantastic 11 point season in 2007, record lowest 😂

Remember beating them one nil at our place that season, stelios scored. It was freezing.

Best game ever. 

97 mins of freezing dullness making you question your life choices followed by a jussi last minute hoof and stelios goal. 

He kissed the lino celebrating!

Yeah - at that time I used to book two weeks after Xmas off to go back home as the kids were little so that'd make sense.

Just had a quick wiki to remind me, I should remember seen as I've written enough about it, but we only won one more game between that one and April. Bleak as. (In the league that is, we did find time to knock Atletico out of Europe of course 😀)

Also bought my dad one of those meet the players things...so a 70 year old lined up to meet the players couldn't stop laughing!

Go on then.

PREMATCH

Quote

I'm sure they will still find 11 giants to batter us with.

Quote
Didn't they have an injury crisis before they smashed us last season at London road?

Anyway not going

Take a draw now but expecting a loss.
Quote

I'd still take a draw right now.

Quote

The last 10 Posh Football League games to attract crowds in excess of 20,000 (10 defeats) have been lost 27-5 on aggregate. (Swanny's latest)

What a horrendous statistic.

And Bolton expect 20,000 plus......

Quote

Pleasantly surprised when I went to get my ticket to find out that they are only a tenner! So to keep the pleasant surprise theme going, we will get a hard-fought, nerve-wracking 2:1 away win. 

Quote

Big crowd with this set of kids...

Lose 4-1 

JCH

Quote

Should be a cracking match with a good atmosphere and may the best team win and the games not spoiled by bad officials.

Quote

If we play like we did first half Tuesday we'll get annihilated.
If we play like we did second half Tuesday we'll just lose.

A bit pessimistic maybe, but I don't see us being physically up to this lot, even JCH got bullied by them last season.

I'll go for a 2-1 defeat, we usually have a goal in us in games like this, I just don't see us getting a result.

Quote

Posh to win 2-1, we're too good for this league.

Quote

I am gong with Bolton 3 Posh 1

We will be physically brushed aside after starting well.

JCH to score for Posh. 

DURING

Quote

NO SANTOS!

Quote

No Santos for them.

I see they also have Kyle Dempsey. I have very few memories of his time at Posh, good or bad. Quite an average and forgettable player. And now I've said that, he'll go and score a spectacular hat trick.

Quote

Thought Dempsey looked good for us. Obviously a wrong un though. That many clubs and that many antics. They're welcome to him.

Quote

Bloody hell! I'm not sure about that.

Quote

Bit harsh, still Thumbup

Quote

Just seen it, I think it was a red. He's off the ground, studs up, and gone right through Ricky. Not sure he needed to make that tackle.

Quote

Definitely a red https://twitter.com/poshgoals/status/170...BQczNVSqOQ, studs up off the ground

Quote

Red all day, hopefully James has packed up refereeing.

Quote

that looked to be an ankle beaker

Quote

Yeah. Was a red having seen a replay.

Quote

Ricky's pace is wasted now they're down to 10 men and defending - maybe need to put Randall on now to try and unpick the defence.

Quote

Feels to me that if Bolton sit this deep the rest of the match we should get another goal.

Quote

Not going to win this somehow

Quote

4 minutes of added time.

Seriously?

POST MATCH

Quote

Ah well, we'd have taken a point beforehand. Frustrating we weren't able to nab another goal, sounds like their 10 men put up a decent fight though.

Quote
And was there bollocks only 47 seconds taken up by Vernon Kay's pitch invasion.
Quote

4 minutes added, pitch invader on pitch for minimum 2 minutes, ref blows whistle on 4 minutes 50 seconds.

Our players other than JCH couldnt score in a brothel.

Quote

We don't appear to have any plan B, it's all very predictable. 

26 shots and 6 on target there's your problem, a weak bench and a weak squad. We should be happy with a mid table this season. 

Would have took a point at the start but can't help feeling that's two points dropped now.

Quote

10 men and on their corners we dont leave someone up ?

Quote

That referee needs a new fucking watch.

Quote

The yellow card was Kioso’ fifth of the season and means that he will now miss Saturday’s home league match against Bristol Rovers, not Tuesday’s trip to Mansfield in the EFL Cup third round.

Ferguson was left bemused by the decision.

He said: “The rules are that the captain can go to the referee and ask a question about the decision.

"The fourth official said that he ran at him in a threatening way, I don’t know whether he had a baseball bat with him or something. It’s not a booking in my book but we have to get on with it.”

Covering Shrewsbury away for now. Might go back to Charlton and Wycombe if I get some spare time.

I’ll do Wycombe. I’m currently house-sitting for my son waiting for an electrician.

Shrews were a decent set of fans all week TBH. They know that defensively they are pretty good but are massively frustrated by their inability to score - maybe it's how they set up as being "hard to beat". From what I could glean from them, a few are already frustrated with Matty Taylor but he's only been there a few months and needs time to sort it out. If they back him in the January window he might be able to push them back up the table, but right now they're flirting with danger. Good luck to them I say.
