Alex Woodyard

Makes a move until the end of the season and joins up with Aaron Chapman. I thought that over the last few games he has been playing at the top of his game, showing some of the others how to put in a shift!

He's shown a bit of physicality with his tackling lately but his passing going forward was awful and he never seemed to have a goal in him.
I think we will sign a couple of more players yet. Hopefully not loan signings.

Thank goodness for that. A truly shocking footballer.

Not surprising that you and Fergie don't agree.
Manager Darren Ferguson said: “Woodyard has been a very good professional, he hasn’t let anyone down, he wanted more regular football. He has been playing of late but that has been down to injuries but he has done fine for us. I wished him all the best and he will go there and get more game time. I’ve enjoyed working with him.”

Wasn't he signed by a truly shocking manager

Thats him.

Might be a coincidence, but the same shocking manager signed the equally shocking O'Hara, Chapman and Bennett

Bennett is better than Beavers. Chapman is on a par with Pym and O'Hara is better than Tasdemir.

Boyd is a truly shocking signing, Eisa is worse than Godden, Butler is no better than either left back last season.


Apart from that, you're doing well.

Because we did so well with those players under Evans, didn't we?

You said they were 'shocking players' - we have no better this season despite spending a hell of a lot more than Evans was given the summer before.

When Evans got sacked we were 6th - where are we now with millions more spent?


I'd suggest you stop digging.

If we were so good under Evans he'd still be Posh manager. And don't give me that **** about him not being a yes man for Darragh, my guess is the board simply got tired of him embarrassing us and booted him and his muppet assistant out. If he'd achieved the right results he could have taken a dump on Barry Frys desk and kept his job.

You can call it what you like, but Evans got the sack because he wasn't a yes man. Same for McCann (which I know for a FACT having spoken to him in his local pub), same for Garry Johnson.

Just ask yourself why MacAnthony keeps having to go back to Ferguson.

And if we've improved so much since this time last year (in a far poorer league having spent a hell of a lot more money), then why do we have less points & will drop out of the play offs once everybody's played their games in hand?

Anyway, good luck to Woody. He was my MoM’s over Christmas!
And, IMO, Bennett is better than Beevers and didn’t do too much wrong today at Burnley. Just my opinion.
We go again...

Bennett has been very good since Kent has been out of the team. I think the young Frankie still has a lot to learn!
