In this Posh class
Tommy Rowe Popular with team-mates and fans alike, he produced consistent and reliable work. Will never be a star, but will usually be selected. Apps: 46 Goals: 4 Grade: B Tyrone Barnett Made a blistering impact when he arrived late in the season following a big money move. Struggled to sustain form though and work needed in the summer to justify his price tag. Apps: 13 Goals: 4 Grade: C+ Paul Jones The more reliable of two goalkeepers who can’t make his mind up whether or not he wants to stay for another year. Wouldn’t be mourned for too long. Apps: 37 Goals: 0 Grade: C+ Grant Mccann The class leader was outstanding for half a season before collecting an injury. Regular goals and assists dried up after Christmas and now set to leave the club. Apps: 42 Goals: 8 Grade: C+ Emile Sinclair OK there is stuff he struggles with (heading, ball control), but for a cheap signing from Leaguetwo, 10 goals is a far better return than expected. Apps: 36 Goals: 10 Grade: C+ George Boyd He’s toned down the flamboyance in favour of delivering a stream of hard-working, disciplined displays. Not sure it’s a good thing, but maybe a change of scenery will reignite the spark. Apps: 48 Goals: 8 Grade: C Mark Little Was one of the team’s better performers in the opening couple of months, but his form suffered a gradual slump and he has now been told he can leave. Apps: 38 Goals: 1 Grade: C Joe Newell Teacher’s pet as rated highly by the management. Enjoyed a golden moment in Leeds, but remains on the fringes of the first-team. Apps: 15 Goals: 1 Grade: C David Ball The boy has useful skills, but they would probably be more appreciated at a lower standard. Apps: 24 Goals: 6 Grade: C- Lee Frecklington Scored some terrific goals, but too often settles for sideways movement rather than forward progress. Apps: 39 Goals: 5 Grade: C- Danny Kearns Produces neat and tidy work, but not enough of it to satisfy the coaching staff, apparently. Disappeared following some promising efforts in the middle of the season. Apps: 21 Goals: 0 Grade: D+ Joe Lewis He can’t shake off the ‘Calamity ‘Keeper’ tag awarded for some disappointing errors live ontv. Not seen much and can leave the club with his head held high (and three promotion medals in his hand) Apps: 12 Goals: 0 Grade: D+ Lee Tomlin Rarely made the most of his natural gifts and was too easily distracted so endured a tough campaign as a result. Expect improvement next season. Apps: 40 Goals: 9 Grade: D Nicky Ajose Totally failed to meet the high expectations that come with a £300,000 transfer fee and will be moved on after failing to make any sort of contribution. Apps: 2 Goals: 0 Grade: E Only players still at London Road at the end of the season included.
Manager Darren Ferguson Asked for 50 points and got them. Deserves high praise for managing expectations as well as a side tipped by everyone to struggle badly.
