Peterborough United fans were asked to sum up the Posh display at Middlesbrough in six words, but some managed it in two! ‘Seen more shots in an AA meeting, hopeless, horrendous and hellish, too slow and same owner, same manager so relegated again’

They were asked to sum up a performance which didn’t include a single shot on target against a makeshift defence in six words...and some didn’t need that many.

Shotshy strikers, the manager, the owners and the club’s summer recruitment all came under fire from frustrated fans.

Hopeless, hapless, horrible, horrendous, haphazard, hellish.

@EasterlyView

Awful recruitment. Wednesday is must win.

@CrispLevi

Too slow. Nothing up front.

@Mark_Nick_Uk

If we don’t shoot = Zero goals.
