Posh players on their lap of appreciation at the end of the season.
Who were the stars and who struggled?
Appearances: 1. Goals: 0. A former Newcastle and Spurs defender signed on reputation, while ignoring a knee injury which had stalled his career. Started one game in the Checkatrade and did okay. 1/10.
Appearances: 45. Goals: 4. Formed a formidable partnership at the heart of the Posh defence with Ryan Tafazolli at the start of the season, but too many errors crept into his game. Goals were a bonus. 5/10.

Appearances: 2. Goals: 0. Coming from Manchester City carries a weight of expectation that was clearly too heavy for this winger. Started just one Checkatrade game and was hauled off in that at half-time with Posh 3-0 down. 1/10.
Appearances: 37. Goals: 0. The 6ft 7ins goalkeeper saved his best form until the end of the season, but it was too late to avoid a place on the transfer list. Didnt dominate his penalty area despite his size. 6/10.
Appearances: 20. Goals: 1. A midfielder who failed to get a decent run in the side under either of two first-team managers. Possibly systems didnt suit his strengths, but his passing was safe and weak. 4/10.
Appearances: 29. Goals 3. A wasted season for an attacking midfielder who started just four League One matches despite a team creativity problem for most of the campaign. 3/10.
Appearances: 29. Goals: 8. Excellent in August, but some strange off-field incidents accompanied a huge drop-off in form. A sad waste of talent. Left for Luton in January. 4/10.
Appearances: 25. Goals 1. The left-back quickly became a scapegoat when results turned sour. Certainly made some rash decisions which cost goals and let go in January. 3/10.
Appearances: 47. Goals: 7. A season full of promise from the dashing winger. Hes raw and doesnt always use the ball perfectly, but a terrific season with some quality goals. 8/10.
Appearances: 11. Goals: 0. On-loan midfielder who suffered when Posh changed manager. Disappeared when Posh started their late run for the play-offs. 3/10.
Appearances: 14. Goals: 0. On-loan left-back who was weak defensively. Only occasional flashes of attacking promise. 3/10.
Appearances: 48. Goals: 18. The striker started the season well. A good finisher, worked hard, but lacked pace and couldnt form a successful partnership with Ivan Toney. 7/10.
Appearances: 8. Goals: 0. Injured on his first appearance and no impact until switched to midfield where he was excellent. Shame the switch didnt happen earlier. 6/10
Appearances: 21. Goals: 0. An on-loan left-back who could look good in possession, but who struggled with one-on-one defending 4/10.
Appearances: 4. Goals: 0. A right-back who made no League One starts in his nine months at the club. When he did appear he was poor 1/10.
Appearances: 46. Goals: 10. Didnt start a match until September 21, but made up for a slow start with some breathtaking form once Darren Ferguson returned as manager 8/10.
Appearances: 50. Goals: 1. Another to deliver his most consistent form towards the end of the season, A right-back capable of playing centre-back, decent defensively and powerful going forward. 7/10.
Appearances: 29. Goals: 4. Three goals in his first two games suggested Posh had found a free-scoring midfielder, but he struggled thereafter to impose himself on games. Spent the second-half of the season at Lincoln. 4/10.
Appearances: 20. Goals: 0. A penalty-saving expert who showed flashes of promise between the sticks, but too many errors, usually involving mad dashes off his goalline. 5/10.
Appearances: 36. Goals: 1. This young midfielder has obvious potential. A neat and tidy passer, well-suited to a possession-based game and a tenacious tackler for one so small. 6/10.
Appearances: 3. Goals: 0. A prolific goalscorer in reserve team football, but a succession of first-team managers have ignored his talents. Often owed his place on the substitutes bench to qualifying as a homegrown player. 2/10.
Appearances: 46. Goals: 1. The most consistent centre-back at the club, one who defends the penalty area with power.Suffered from a couple of niggly injuries, although played through pain in the final matches. 7/10
Appearances: 21. Goals: 2. The high excitement that accompanied his return to Posh wasnt matched by his exploits on the pitch. A disappointment generally as he looked lethargic and slow apart from in a couple of matches. 4/10.
Appearances: 55. Goals: 23. A striker with enormous potential once he starts to use that impressive physique consistently. Can look ponderous, but regularly delivered quality finishes in an excellent first season. 8/10.
Appearances: 17. Goals: 2. Arrived on loan from Wigan, scored on his debut, but it went downhill quickly for him from then on. Playing style certainly didnt suit a classy footballer 3/10.
Appearances: 52. Goals: 5. This smooth-running, hard-working wide player was a revelation this season. Quickly became one of the most reliable performers in the squad and should improve again under the current manager. 8/10.
Appearances: 16. Goals: 1. Once adapting to the physical nature of first-team football in the Football League this cultured centre-back looked a decent player. On loan from Brighton. 6/10.
Appearances: 51. Goals: 0. There were mixed reviews about the har-working captain. Some enjoyed the unlimited energy that allowed him to press opponents for 90 minutes, but others bemoaned his limited ability on the ball.. 6/10
Appearances: 3. Goals: 0. Played well for 45 minutes at Gillingham, then dragged the clubs name through the mud with a ridiculous attempt to avoid a drugs test. Sacked by Posh after receiving a four-year ban from the sport. 0/10.
