Re: Peter-blimey!

I would agree with that. I thought we were excellent in the first half - some of the best football we have played in years. Fosu-Henry ran the show. I'm not quite sure why we were less convincing in the second half - perhaps the Posh changes, perhaps Fosu-Henry ran out of steam. The main reason for ...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

I won't start a rant about how this is essentially the fault of the football authorities, fit and proper persons, etc., because I know we'd all agree. It's just very sad.

Re: Summer transfers 2019

I don't know how we have ended up without key players, but I doubt it is lack of trying. For example, both Cadden and Browne appeared happy to move to the club, and their current club agreed the deal. Then they got a better offer from elsewhere.

What an honour! After thanking everyone (and especially our cat) in my gracious victory speech, I have come back down to earth.
