Couldn't make it due to work.

From all accounts (probably more bias on our end);

- The first half was even. Not much happened for either side, Posh possibly the more dangerous going forward.

- Second half we played quite well, took the game to Posh and scored a peachy goal, perhaps could have had another. Bizarre red card lifts Posh. Our keeper flaps at a ball gives a stupid penalty away and that's that. We hit the bar at the death and possibly could have nicked it.

How did we play Posh?

5 goals for Sawyers now, including a few peaches. Can tell he's been told to shoot more and play higher up the pitch, if only Smith did this 2 years ago. Shame that Bradshaw went off injured. A precautionary substitution after he felt his groin apparently. I'd let him miss Chelsea if it meant him being fit for next Saturday.

387 is an absolutely horrendous turnout, it really is. I know getting east in this country is shit, but that's a truly dire following. Was expecting 5-700.

We never beat bloody Crewe.

Crap following indeed but we move on, our first wank following of the season though absolutely no excuse to not break 500 today, Wigan will be double that and possibly more. Don't know if the Chelsea game on Wednesday has any effect but it shouldn't.

Would of taken that before the game but a big kick in the teeth how it panned out. Still, another point on the board with Crewe at home up next which is a tricky tie, cos it's fucking Crewe

We, again, were better than we have been all season and McCann has got us doing the right stuff. I'd be quite content if we gave the job to him to be honest.

Walsall looked good in stages, as did we. Romanie Sawyers, who I still wish we signed, hit a worldie and we were chasing the game from then on.

The red card was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen in football. Jermaine Anderson was having a great game too. Football on 5 know nothing - there was no retaliation there. He literally threw a water bottle back to the physio who missed it, and it landed splashing someone in the crowd, who were laughing about it, and the ref says violent conduct! Mental. Smith was trying to condone it too which was odd.

But that gave us a bit more life, and then Etheridge made a silly error and the rest is history. I'm content with a point. Walsall will be up there at the end of the season.

Graham Westley was there for a third straight game. Please, please, please, god no.

Just seen the penalty decision back, from a distance looked a clear penalty but fuck me Neil barely even touches him!
