135 points still to play for


I was playing croquet. Seems like good decision.

Did Posh manager Darren Ferguson get his tactics wrong?


abhorrent, lacklustre, floundering, naive, disappointing, gash,

garbage, ghastly.


Tactically inept and poorly prepared team lacking imagination.


Underperforming Eisa, Boyd conundrum, schoolboy errors, underwhelmed, deflated.


Goalkeeper, back four looked nervous, men against boys.


A set of players believing their own hype.


Calm yourselves, only the first game this season.


Slow, heartless, pathetic, awful, boring, soul destroying hoofball.


League one Galacticos get gubbed by Fleetwood Town.


Promotion is in the hands of Marcus Maddison.


DMAC and fans let down by players today.
