PETERBOROUGH UNITED SPECIAL: 15 Posh signings who failed to live up to expectations including one who went on to win 29 caps for England

Peterborough United have generally been great in the transfer market during the Darragh MacAnthony era with some spectacular successes far outweighing the signings who flopped.

But there have inevitably been signings in Posh history who have been huge disappointments and they are the ones we are remembering here with the help of our readers.

Posh fan and talkSPORT host Adrian Durham, nominated Luke James while others also picked on fairly recent signings Tom Nichols and Jack Baldwin, Others dared to mention the Posh ‘Holy Trinity’ of Craig Mackail-Smith, Aaron Mclean and George Boyd who predictably didn’t match their feats during Darren Ferguson’s first spell as Posh boss when they returned to the club.

Lee Tomlin’s patchy form when he returned last season was mentioned, but it would be Posh heresy to include any of the four superstars.

We have though included a manager who should have done much better.
