Cambridge v Posh - EFL Trophy

Post by tonyp » 08 Nov 2020, 09:14

The last time we went to Cambridge was on 7 November 2017.
It was in the Checkatrade Trophy as it was called then.
We won 2-0.
Posh: O’Malley, Tafazolli, Baldwin, Edwards (sub Kanu 82min), Lloyd, Maddison (sub Anderson 82min), Marriott, Da Silva Lopes (sub Hughes 69min), Doughty, Taylor, Grant. Unused subs: Bond, Shephard, Forrester, Chettle.

I'm guessing we won't let them off as lightly this time.

That, in 2017, was pretty much our best team at the time. Fergie has intimated that none of the players that played against Oxford would be starting at Cambridge. The game is a dead rubber so all the youngsters will no doubt get a chance.

I have no idea what happens in the next round but if both managers treat this game the same way it could be good to see the youngsters get a chance.
Obviously both teams are going to progress regardless of the result (whether they like it or not!).
If Cambridge decide they want to win (and field a strong team) they might just have a chance.

Cambridge may have an outside chance of an upset if Fergie selects the championship winning team of 1960

I imagine more than half are dead so they might just sneak it.

Dunno. Norman Rigby must be 90 if he's still alive and he'd still beat the Cambridge strikers for pace

Sadly he’s been pushing up daises for about 19 years, still better that most Cambridge players, we’d be a little unbalanced, it seems that only Jim Walker, Ray Smith and Peter McNamee would be available for selection

Me too. It will be interesting to see some of the younger players get a decent run out in the first team. UTP!

This’ll be far too strong for little old Scumbridge

No problems here either.
Great goal by Clarke by the way.

little old Scumbridge managed a draw and stay top of the table.
Eisa missed his penalty in the shoot out.
Good game I thought. We should have won. Fergie didn't look too happy.

We should have won, considering the make up of the side, if Eisa were a donkey a vet would have been called to put him down after that miss after that equaliser. Very poor penalty from posh, Clarke’s goal was superb.
