FInally. Even in an age where managers often get sacked prematurely, Fergie got far far too long this season.

A complete and utter charlatan, can't believe he didn't eat it last Summer. I don't pretend to know a lot about Peterborough, but wasn't it Fry and your network of scouts that got in the likes of Boyd, CMS and McLean anyway?

MacAnthony and Fry do the scouting. MacAnthony found Gayle and Tomlin. Fry CMS and Boyd. We don't actually hire scouts.

The manager has the final word on whether they sign or not, but those two do the groundwork.

Gayle

And then you tried to get Murphy as well. Gits. ;)

Blackett & Green were shit though to be fair.

Is Dom Green even a footballer anymore?!
True. Although when you took Green, he had only played 4-5 games since breaking into the first team and really was not ready for a move away. He was very raw and really got noticed on the base of 1-2 excellent free kicks and positive play.

You bought Blackett when he was a Conference player. Really, he wasn't any better than a league two defender. At the time, he suited your needs I suppose.

Green was a strange one. Every player at the club at the same time as him said the things he did in training were incredible. He just never managed to convert it on to the pitch.

Blackett did a job but as you say, suited needs but we outgrew his ability rapidly. Not his fault though.
