Funny reading this ahead of Saturday....https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/sport/football/posh/tawdry-tactics-and-bad-behaviour-1-8809122
The irony coming from this piece when Evan has been your manager...not sure what Alan Swann will make of Mackie 😂
Without being involved, and only looking in from outside, it looks to have become increasingly tough to operate...this weekend:
Dont wish to detract from the thread, should be one of thanks for the input of the Ultras over the last decade.
Sorry to see this go. The match day experience will be poorer without it. A shame that (I suspect) the stadium company and current ownership have seen an end to one of the few positives around the club. Thanks for the time and effort to create such displays
Funny that we are being described as 'shithousing' opponents when in reality we are just out fighting them. We don't kick the ball away, buy fouls, waste time.
None the less - good to see us properly competing and holding our own
The primary issue, currently with xG is the data available for league 1 and below. Whilst its an indicator, its not as reliable as those in the top 5 leagues.

The one thing in our favour is he clearly has some sort of affinity to Oxford. It’s the only place he has received decent match time and been appreciated.
Another move to the championship to sit on the bench? If, asKR alluded to there could be money on the horizon, I don’t see why keeping...
How many chances did Sunderland have. How many attempts did Grigg and Wyke have? A pretty expensive forward line! Tough to criticise the defence. Hanson is perfectly fine at RB. Nothing amazing but is better on the ball than Ruffels
As always, the best judge of these things:
Essentially everything that has happened for them this season. Keeper keeps them in it, create very little but somehow score.
