Now meet the Cham­pi­onship play­ers who are not shap­ing up

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Taken off af­ter be­ing run ragged by a blis­ter­ing sec­ond-half dis­play by Posh. cen­tre-back Ja­son Shack­ell (Derby) A mil­lion pound de­fender who can’t run and made poor de­ci­sions to help a Posh re­cov­ery from 2-0 down. cen­tre-back Tommy Smith (Ip­swich) Sent off 30 sec­onds af­ter com­ing on at Lon­don Road. A Kiwi in­ter­na­tional at a sport few New Zealan­ders care about. right mid­field Julien Faubert (West Ham) He kept cross­ing the ball into the Up­ton Park stands. Not good when a seat costs £32. left mid­field Jean Beause­jour (Birm­ing­ham) Spent more time on the ground than he did on his feet. cen­tre mid­field Jonathan Specter (Birm­ing­ham City) Not sure what he brings to a Cham­pi­onship side. He won’t stopthe Blues’ slide to mid-ta­ble ob­scu­rity. cen­tre mid­field Grant Lead­bit­ter (Ip­swich) Cre­ated more chances for Posh than he did for his own side in that mas­sive TV maul­ing back in Au­gust. Striker Jer­main Beck­ford (Le­ices­ter) What a waste of money. Cash doesn’t buy you a great at­ti­tude on­vi­ously. Striker Clive Platt (Coven­try) Not a lot ap­peared to have changed from his Posh days. Still big, still im­mo­bile, still pretty use­less. Striker Chris Wood (Birm­ing­ham) Scored goals for fun ear­lier in the sea­son. Be­lieved to still be in Gaby Zakuani’s pocket.
