‘Going up, great atmosphere, looked comfortable all game.’


‘That’s why Ferguson gets paid the big bucks.’


‘Head’s spinning, need a lie down after that one!’


‘Everything we did today was incredible, simply outstanding. Love Szmodics.’


‘Darragh would probably get more tweets had we lost 4-1. What a great day out. It’s only just over a month since Rotherham away. Starting to believe something special is happening.’


‘Posh winning big helps the train fail become much more bearable.’


‘Be careful Darren, you might be manager of the month!’


‘Imagine having one of England’s best ever football managers as your Dad. You remove a troublemaker, you remove a formation that doesn’t work. You secure 3 new exciting players, well done Darren Ferguson & Sir Alex.’


‘A direct Peterborough United has unlocked the door to promotion.’


‘Completely expected, Szmodics is pure class, Dembele’s finally stepping up.’


‘This is beginning to look like promotion.’


‘Organised, clinical, hard-working, pressing Posh.’


‘So fluent in attack and organised at the back. Wow.’


‘Championship performance, 100% effort from everyone including fans.’
