Just checked and we’ve not won at Peterborough since 1988! Can see us shipping a few, especially if they play like they did in the 1st half at our place a few weeks ago.

If Caldwell continues with the same boring slow predicable tactics I fear we will see another loss. 3 - 0 and continuation of latest poor run. When is this man going to learn these tactics neither entertain or more importantly win games.
We beat them 3 weeks ago playing Caldwell’s “boring slow predictable tactics”. Maybe it will work again?!

...but we got battered until they pressed the self destruct button.

You never know, they might get another red card and score 2 own goals again.

I'm quite fearful about this one. I thought Peterborough were superb, up until the sending off, in the recent game at SJP.

3-0.

We were only one down and that was to an absurd penalty... we'd also missed an absolutely gilt-edged chance. We were also playing into a howling gale. Not sure why people are so reluctant to give credit for the rare positive moments. The red card was also not a slice of luck dropping down from heaven... they couldn't contain Harper (and later Rankine). If the red was a stroke of luck for us, their penalty was too.

Fair enough, will have to agree to disagree. I think we got a massive slice of luck that night, which in all honesty was probably well overdue - that's football.

I'm convinced we wouldn't have got anything out of that game had they kept 10 players on the field, but at the end of the day, who cares anyway?

Well right, who cares about any of it, but its the kind of pointless gibbering this website is for, isn't it... stop us looking into the abyss. We would've lost if it remained 11 vs 11.. we can agree on that. But there are lucky moments... their penalty they were lucky Aimson lost his marbles... Aitcheson's miss, they were lucky, etc. The red was firmly on the cards, even if we were lucky with the specific incident. They were lucky to finish with 10 men.
