On the face of it, we're almost uninvited guests against such high flyers. Nothing but a hammering in sight, so what to lose? Got your invitations ready?

Get Politic or Verlinden playing just off Murphy. One of them running at Beevers could cause panic at the back.

2-1 win. T Bone and Durphy

Let's hope it's not as high scoring as my only visit (5-4 defeat under Freedman) because in our decimated state I can only see the goals going in one way.

Must admit their league position is a bit of a thought provoker, but hey, we've won games we weren't supposed to before. Ask Arsene Venger. :D

I was at that one too. The weather was not fine that day.

Worryingly, Peterborough are the league's top scorers with 42 goals in 19 games. And they've got two players on 13 each (compared to our 11 in total). That said, in the "form over the last five" table, we're 6th (who'd have thought?) and they're 16th. Fingers crossed, eh? Mind you, I said that last night ....

I can't see anything other than a defeat & a quite heavy one at that - possibly 3-0 or 4-0, we have gone seriously backwards this last month or so under Hill (especially defensively, we are all over the place), and listening to his interviews I don't think that he really knows how to turn this around - repeatedly asking the fans to be patient isn't enough IMO, and he needs to start with Verlinden.

I hope that I'm wrong & a point would be a fantastic result but I just can't see it.

Guessing Verlinden won’t start, Bertie, given Hill’s talk of “unpopular choices”. Certainly we need better results on the road, though I can’t see it here. Me and The Legendary Flanners are just coming off the A1(M) now (he’s driving) so I may be able to do updates later, depending on connectivity and desire. I fear 0-3 but I’ll be right behind the lads. COYWM

Possible change of formation? Back three with Bridcutt?

COYW.

Hoping the Bridcutt, Lowe, L.Murphy trio is an effective triangle, rather than the dot it morphed into at Accrington, assuming it is a back 4 rather than a back 5...

Hope we remember to keep an eye on Beevers zooming in on set pieces and corners. That said, COME ON YOU WHITES.... :oyea: :oyea: :oyea:

I think our triangle today might actually be Lowe, Murphy and Darcy, with Bridcutt at the back.

Is that how we're playing?

It appears to be the usual 4-3-3 with Darcy playing the Verlinden/O'Grady role. Lowe, Lurphy and Bridcutt the midfield 3 no?

As per expected, get it on Beever's head in the box. One off the top of the bar.....

Iles reckons Emanuel's defending was "dreadful" for their goal?

Absolutely awful defending again, what the fcuk was Emmanuel doing he just left the striker in acres of space & a free header. I'll tell you what Hill's attacking footballing philosophy is working - 30 mins gone, no shots, no shots on target, no corners.

We cant defend for toffee, and we don't attack or create that much either.
