Saw Goodwin made his debut for you, how did he do?
We actually looked better when he came on which in fairness I think had much more to do with Matete’s introduction more than anything.

Physicality is obviously his biggest strength. Not the easiest game to settle into mind, so not judging him too prematurely. A lot of heavy touches, but clearly not sharp just yet.

We’ve craved physicality all over the pitch for dare I say it, years. So despite his cameo, just his physicality alone was refreshing!

Pretty comfortable 1-0 win without being that good. Carlisle run themselves silly, but one special piece of play won the match. Hit the bar and post aswell. I'll take 9 more 1-0. Saw we've not got 10 clean sheets in 17 away from home. Results went for us today. Paddy Lane is some player. 2 years younger with more goals that Mason-Clarke who went for £2.5m

Kick in the balls to lose the game the way we did, but Barnsley in that second half had us camped in for most of it. Injuries combined with fatigue finally caught up with us today.

Thought we matched Barnsley first half and we had a few chances and strikes on goal, as the second half went on we looked more and more laboured.

Sol Brynn pulled off 9 saves before making a poor error of judgement for the first Barnsley goal.

Credit to Barnsley who still went for it with ten men and managed to find the winner from a set play.

Lost two more players to injury today which basically cost us the game, the fixture schedule was going to bite us eventually as our squad doesn't have the depth the majority of the top sides do.

Also for the first time today in two years under Wellens we scored first and lost.

So nice to see us so attacking, have to say we battered Fleetwood and rightly won.

First half Fleetwood happy for us to have the ball, and they offered very little going forward, except Stockley winning header after header. We offered far more but struggled to create proper chances. Fleetwood score after Jensen made a horrendous error, not sure what he was doing, whether he misread the pace of the ball or player.

Against the run of play, and had that been Kennedys team, we would have struggled to get back in. Big altercation just before half time turns injury time from expected 2 mins to 8 mins plus and Fleetwood player sent off.

2nd half we changed shape, Fleetwood trying to run the clock down from very start and they couldn't cope with our relentlessness. 2 quick fire goals and Fleetwood had no choice but to play again.

Cracking game from Bishop, and so pleased for House goal. We lost our way towards end but despite Fleetwood having more of the ball, never felt they would equalise bar 1 goal mouth scramble.

Most Fleetwood fans I think we've had here, around 175. They battled well, but we were too much.
I don't think we've had so many attempts at goal for aaaaages. Hell of a ball in from Reeco for the House goal.

Less said about Fleetwood's goal the better, Jenson seemed to play in slow motion and Roughan stumble slightly when it looked like he'd be able to block the ball.

I've seen a clip of the Vale penalty and I can't work out if it is or isn't. On one paused frame it looks like it hits his head but in the next his arm swings back as though there's contact but if it does, it seems more shoulder than arm?

Didn’t expect anything yesterday so delighted with nicking a point at the death. Derby must hate playing us, still yet to beat us since 1995.

We look a totally different side under Hurst, a team that look like they have gained confidence and being allowed more freedom to attack. After being the lowest scorers in the league, we’ve now scored four goals in three games and it should really be more than that. Actually nice to look forward to games once again.

Sidenote:- These past two months Mal Benning has turned into a different beast. Full credit to him as on current form he’s one of our best players. Didn’t expect to be saying that after we bought him in the summer.

Great win for us yesterday. Yes both our goals were from deflections but finally we are deciding to shoot in those positions. By contrast Wigan were passing sideways - that was us before Christmas. Still liked the look of Smith though.
For us, I thought Niskanen had a good game after a couple of poor ones, and yet again Zac Jules is looking class

Good noise from the away end too.

Definite penalty. The video fat man and Stevenage fans are using is pathetic, huge distance away, view obscured by the player, yet they're acting as though it's conclusive. Liner had the best view in the ground, as did those in the paddock. It's Stonewall. I'd even argue the video backs it up looking at how his arm moves. Not to mention the fact the lad signals it hit his arm.

I was sat behind the lino and felt it was at the time but would need to see it from that angle again. It certainly hits his arm as the player was pointing to his upper arm in protest rather than his head. Hopefully the pitch side camera was at a better angle when we get the behind the scenes later.

Was stunned it was given mind as the referee came out second half giving them everything and us nothing and seemed like he’d had a roasting at half time from Evans! :lol:

He'd clearly been spoken to. Every decision went their way second half.

I'm amazed they are as high as they are. They just play for set pieces. They've got no footballers. They would be absolutely trounced in the Championship. When you compare them to Bolton, Portsmouth etc. I'm aghast as to how they have managed to pick up so many wins.

We're a team at a very low ebb and yet bar about 10 minutes when we went to sleep, we were the better team.

They are very good at set pieces to be fair. I’ve been saying we should sign Piergianni since his Oldham days, he wins everything in the air. They get a set piece on the half way line and they load the box like it’s a corner so clearly work on it and are good at it.

Poor footballers but play to their strengths. We’ve drawn 4 times but felt we should of won 3 of those games, should of battered them in the cup replay but they managed to find a way.

I wonder if Mr Ferguson was bemoaning any celebrating from the Wycombe fans for them winning yesterday!?

Don’t get the reference here…?

His post-game interview was mostly focused on defending their young keeper, who by any stretch of the imagination had the mother of all shockers, and effectively set up most of our goals…

Any Cambridge or Lincoln fans who fancy a watch of PUFC making a massive pig’s ear of a game should enjoy these.

Our third goal in particular is a great reminder as to why dicking about with short passes at the back is a terrible idea.

It’s after Ferguson bemoaned Lincoln fans claiming we were celebrating getting a draw against them a couple of weeks ago. Not that there was anything out of the ordinary from us home fans, we were just happy to see a decent performance at SB after so much dross and what looked like us turning the corner and getting some of our injured forwards back. It did help not losing to them for once as we really do not like Posh but anything that derides Fergie or Peterborough in general as a club is fair game to me.

Quality bit of play from the winger for the first goal, always good to see this kind of thing, hopefully repeated in a few weeks time.

What a truly awful performance from us yesterday, absolutely shocking, Cheltenham were bang for up it and we was the complete opposite, saying that despite us being awful we still created the four/five best chances of the game, we really ought to be taking at least one of them, crap finishing by all.

Far from convinced by Harris but realise it’s still very early days, making 4 subs in one go yesterday kinda sums him up for me, personally think he’s bloody clueless.

Should have won the game comfortably on chances made, but we were pretty abysmal in between those moments, and Cheltenham scored from pretty much their only chance. Good finish mind, and they defended well and looked threatening at times, that said don’t think they are good enough to get out of trouble. More performances like that and we’ll get sucked back in.

Goalcam angle seems to show it as a penalty, basically elbows it away in an unnatural position.

Entertaining game at Sixfields yesterday, pretty even and I felt Bolton were better with 10. Good crowd, good atmosphere from both sets of fans, both gaffers thinking their side could have nicked it, especially with the flurry of late chances at both ends.

Just a reminder we’ve picked up 15 points from a possible 30 under Harris.

He’s had a January window and turned around a squad who had downed tools under Bonner. He might not be the long term answer but short term surely you must be convinced he is.

A weird and wonderful fact from the weekend, apparently Ben House's goal was the first league goal scored by a striker for us this season. It's February. :lol:

I’m certainly not convinced by him, far to emotional for my liking and tactically haven’t seen him do enough, Saturday being a prime example of seeing the game plan clearly not working but changing it(to late) to something I still can’t work out now, 4 subs at the same just just screams clueless to me.
