Bostwick...the player we miss most when he’s not in the side (as a defender).

@capper_mike

Chris Forrester, so assured on the ball and rarely puts a foot wrong. Easy transition from Ireland too.

Forrester by a mile...our good/bad spells this season almost match up exactly to when he has/hasn’t played.

@PUFCHaribo

Maddison goals and assists. Forrester for being a top performer and probably the most consistent. I’d add Bostwick, Smith, Maddison, Alnwick and possibly Washington (which perhaps says something).

@14obrien14

Not POY, but Beautyman has to be top six. Arguably the most consistent performer for Posh this season.

@LBSFooty

You can’t look past Chris Forrester. Great season and already one of the best central midfielders of the DMac era. Elder, Smith, Bostwick, Maddison and Washington for a top six.

@Jamesb17

Michael Smith and Michael Bostwick for consistency, however Forrester has been our best player by far this season.

@ben_brittain2

Maddison. 25 goals and assists in 35 games and some of those were sub appearances and some when being played at left back!

@JP1506

For me it’s a toss up between Forrester and Taylor. Forrester won’t be here long before he’s picked up by a Premier L eague club.

@ABGratton24

Bostwick ­ Mr Reliable

@retrometabolism

Maddison or Forrester

@chuggy173

Chris Forrester for me. Although a late arrival to the club & still very young, he’s added quality & composure in midfield. Can see shades of Grant McCann in him.

@Jones6Kieran

Beautyman, often overlooked for the credit he deserves. Great work and team-player ethics.

@jasonAllanBish1

Alnwick ­ the player who saved us the most points by far.

@0Lmm7

My top 6 Posh players in order: Bostwick, Forrester, Alnwick, Elder, Washington and Taylor.

@scarboroughsss

Forrester for me, although had he stayed fit then it would have been Callum Elder. Hopefully he’ll be back next season.

@CHAMM24

Maddison as despite the criticism he is the only player who has improved since Christmas.The rest went to the beach on Boxing Day. And some are still there.

@POSHANDY61

My six would be (no order): Forrester, Maddison, Bostwick, Taylor, Elder, Beautyman . Probably Forrester or Bostwick as POY for their consistency.

@ChandlerLouie

Bostwick for POY. Maddison, Forrester, Angol, Smith & Taylor probably best of the rest.

@JohnVerrall

Bostwick as he’s so solid.

@PahRauidhri

Forrester wins for me. Bostwick, Smith & Beautyman up there too. Washington and Elder have been our most missed as well, so deserve a mention.

@buckley_ronan

Smith, Bostwick, Forrester, Beautyman, Maddison, Taylor in the top six (No order). Forrester POY, biggest influence on the team!

@BradleyRayner9

Beautyman, brought energy to the midfield.

@TommoNewton2

Zakuani/Forrester as we look different when both of these are not in the team.

@LukeCompton2010

Bostwick POY, Smith, Elder, J. Anderson, Forrester, Taylor best of the rest.

@TomLea_

Forrester. He’s been consistently solid since his move. Although sometimes sluggish, he has real quality that Posh would miss.

@danmason_10

Forrester our best player and consistent too,Taylor not far behind.

@PUFC7

I’m not his biggest fan but at times Maddison has been the only one shining to give us hope.

@noelmc66

Washington, as this was his season and he was vital to our early success!

@aldabl

Forrester head and shoulders above the rest. Quality signing

@DazMoody

Bostwick is the only one who’s done it over the whole season. Forrester played well for most as did Washington.

@SuperPosh

Bostwick for me! We always look suspect at the back without him. Washington should get a nod as well!

@j_cook36

In no order: Bostwick, Maddison, Taylor, Forrester, Alnwick & Oztumer.

@erichodnett

Forrester, Maddison, Taylor, Smith, J. Anderson, Elder (despite injuries).

@AlexBatt

Chris Forrester for me. The chairman is right in what he said about him. Premier League side West Brom couldn’t get near him in the two FA Cup games.

@FORTUNATESON

Top six: Forrester, Bostwick, Smith, Maddison ,Taylor, Beautyman.

@cpufchatton

Chris Forrester who controls the game for Posh and rarely puts a foot wrong! Been quality considering he moved away from family.

@RobconPUFC

Maddison for me.. plays for the love of the game, not for popularity .

@LennieLina

Forrester for sure, but Maddison deserves a mention for realising individual quality can fit into a team. Alnwick and Bostwick also.

@buckrodgersposh

Michael Smith for me. Matured into a reliable right back. He makes very few mistakes during games.

@BigNick1934

Chris Forrester. Calm, composed, protects our fragile back line, plays it neat & simple. Best £50k Posh ever spent

@Edgaralanpoe48

Bostwick, Alnwick, Forrester, Maddison, Washington and Taylor in that order. Bostwick player of the season by a mile.
