In this Posh class

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - The Posh Review -

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.
