The Peterborough United fans speak! ‘The players deserved awful marks, the manager deserved a zero, it was disgraceful, something is very wrong and an attempt to stay positive

Several Peterborough United players received a ‘stinker’ rating in the Petreborough Telegraph following yesterday’s (December 29) horrible 4-0 League One defeat at Rotherham.

Posh fans who contacted @PTAlanSwann on Twitter seemed to agree with the ratings. One pundit awarded manager Darren Ferguson a 0/10.

‘You’re getting the hang of the ratings Swanny. Ivan Toney might deserve a touch more for endeavour.’

‘Can’t argue with any of the player marks. Fergie has to be a 0. If he had watched Rotherham at all, why did he play Burrows, should have played Bennett, with Ward instead of Beevers and gone 5-3-2 . Appreciate injury problems but, we were set up to fail today.’


‘Player marks were about right.’


‘None of the players deserved more than a 3/10.’


‘Your player marks were more than generous.’


‘Still a long way to go, so stay positive Posh fans. We are still in the play-offs and the New Year will bring new energy.’


‘Hate to say it, but Fergie saying we need bodies back is a joke. We had all three central defenders and keeper available. Knight/Dembele would have made little difference. Something is wrong.’


‘Every goal is woeful from a Posh point of view (though a clear foul on Toney before the second IMO).’


‘And we will go lower when we cash in on the better players. Who can blame the owners if they do? I am so annoyed this evening. Disgraceful. 0-3 and 0-4 when we are supposed to be up for it. How on earth are we only three points off automatic?’


‘Not quite sure what’s going on Posh at the minute. A few squad players who just aren’t good enough, others who clearly want out plus mounting transfer speculation, maybe?’


‘If I never see half that side playing again it will be a day too soon. Also if Fergie continues with a formation that doesn’t fit the players available then he will lose my support like he obviously did the players’ today.’


‘I have tickets for Lincoln, staying at home now,’


‘Josh Knight would have offered more solidity and Dembele or Tasdemir possibly more creativity, but if all it takes is a couple of injuries to leave us with no midfield of note then it’s a major problem.’
