Now meet the Championship players who are not shaping up
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.
