iFollow question. Going okay 3-4k watching last season. Randy believes watching at home and at stadium are two different experiences. He wants games to be broadcast at 3pm and the club should run it and benefit from it. Randy is working on a Posh interactive streaming service to include stats/player info. iFollow being ditched by Posh in January.

Pym question. Still getting paid will likely leave in January and be replaced.

Darragh values the club at £36 million. Debt free, top-40 club an hour from London, one promotion from the best league and richest league in the world, new stadium, valuable playing squad with potential to grow.

Best thing about owning Posh? Randy just loves the business. Jason loves the supporters and the affinity he has with them, and the club’s staff. Darragh loves the feeling/routine after a win.

Dembele question. He isn’t going to sign. He is not interested and Darragh understands. All covered in the PT and online last week. Darragh says he will find the next Dembele

Favourite Posh goal asks a young fan. Jason goes for Toney’s goal re Pompey. Jason is a Southampton man. Randy says first goal in Championship got him running around the kitchen at home. Darragh JCH pen v Lincoln because of the magnitude.

Bournemouth away match moved to Monday night January 3 which has ruined plans to take team to Dubai for mid winter break. Live on Sky probably

Why is away form so bad? Take away Sheff Utd and Swansea and our bad patch stretched over just 18 minutes says Darragh. Confidence issue . Players feel different at home as they’ve been so good here for 3 years. Darragh confident will improve as season goes on.

Adi still going. Parachute payment question. Any discussion at Championship level re a parachute payment if you go down to League One? Darragh always been worried about the Championship becoming Premier League 2.

Adi now asking re financial difference between League One and Championship. £7 million difference. But everything is more expensive.
