David Oldfield has joined Stevenage as Assistant Coach this week. Slight question on the state of their Broadhall Pitch as one game this week already cancelled. It is raining at this present time.

They've also had an away game postponed. Not that it will affect us.

Stevenage Football Club's Herts Senior Challenge Cup First Round tie against Hadley FC has been postponed due to a Waterlogged pitch at Hitchin Town's Top Field Stadium...

The Match Referee called the game off this morning following a 10:30am pitch inspection.

Surely a good opportunity to shake things up a bit, give some who appear to be in need of a rest, a rest. If my name was Ferguson and I was charged with selecting a team for this match against probably the worst team in the football league.

I'd go for a 4-3-3, with Pym in goal, full backs Mason and Blake-Tracey on either side of central defenders Knight and Kent, a midfield three of Ward, Reed and Woodyard, and a front three made up of Kanu, Toney and Dembele. a bench of Chapman, Butler, Beevers, Maddison, Eisa, Tasdemir and Boyd.

Don't shoot the piano player it's just my opinion and obviously most will not agree with it but something for discussion rather that throwing your toys out of the pram like Gaz did yesterday when someone had the audacity to have a different opinion to himself.

Good post bristle. Not throwing my toys out the pram but I reckon that Fergie should play his perceived strongest team and it's certainly not what you wanted !

My point was his strongest perceived team has been underperforming

If your name was Ferguson you'd be picking a team that would definitely win. It's the FA Cup and anything can happen. As anybody who was around in the good old days of Giantkiller Posh knows.

From the Stevenage Official site-
Saturday's match has been designated ALL-TICKET for Peterborough supporters and as such, will not be available from The Lamex Stadium on the day of the game. With approximately 200 tickets remaining from their allocation of 1796, there is a good chance of a sell-out.

That's why this 'underperforming' team needs to get back out on the pitch and prove that they can do it! They owe the club and the fans a good result and display. As Tony says, anything can happen in the FA Cup and we need to get some good revenue from it. Revenue will help FFP enabling the board and Darren to improve the team in the coming months.

Good news. Loanee Josh Knight has been given permission by Leicester to play for Posh in the FA Cup.

Still losing and not creating anything. We're playing badly, so expect Gaz to come on later and tell us it's all Fergies fault. Possibly Whitey will be joining him

So we managed to scrape a replay.
Not bad considering everybody thought we would murder them.
