That was the worst penalty I've ever seen. I started walking to the aisle as soon as he stood at that ridiculous angle to the ball.

funnily enough I watched this a few weeks ago. (no idea why really) It was like he approached the ball to deliberately bend it like a free kick into the top corner. Needless to say he ended up looking quite ridiculous.

Scott Lindsey would be positively glowing about our box entries given last night's performance by the sounds of things. It goes to show, that whilst there is more than 1 way to skin a cat, Flynn's way sounds more enjoyable.

Sounded all good.

I did expect a spanking.

On to Saturday, which i miss through holiday.

Pens again?...

I can only remember Charlton in the Poffs as a success. I dont watch them, cannot bear it.

just watched the very abridged highlights and there was some worrying defending based on that.

But our fans say we defended well so I'll assume they showed every posh chance and the rest were thwarted.

Good finish by RHM.. The keeper would be annoyed at himself but was probably expected it to go across him

The ever brilliant Rich Banyard gave out this stat last night.

I'll be honest, we've won loads more shoot outs than I thought. I could only remember 4.

It's actually 11 wins and 14 defeats in shootouts... BUT...

1 out of 4 in playoff matches
0 out of 1 in the FA Cup
0 out of 6 in the League Cup
10 out of 14 in minor cup competitions

Except for Charlton, we only win the crap ones!

I guess the minor competitions are far less likely to stick in the memory. I think we've beaten Oxford twice in minor comps. (maybe more) Once in the ZDS cup and once in the Johnstone's paint. (to break the 7 in a row)

"They were more aggressive than us"

Not sure of the last time an opposition manager said that about us!

Surprised watching the highlights, as they don't seem to back up what Flynn said:


Just watched the full game back and i agree with Flynn, we looked very impressive and frustrated Posh throughout the majority of the game.

Also just watched the full match replay and we looked a very decent side. Would have been nice to have won the penalty shoot out so we could actually say we won a cup tie but it ultimately doesn't matter and everyone should feel very positive going into the first home game of the season on Saturday...

It is totally laughable, but do you honestly believe our fans would not be exactly the same were the shoe on the other foot!
