YOUR POSH VIEWS
YOUR Posh views from www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk on . . .
On Conor Washington . . . BEING a born and bred St Ivian [involved with St Ives FC] and a big Posh fan, I’ve got to say I’m over the moon.
Conor is a cracking lad and has earned his chance as he has terrorised defences all season up and down the country.
He’s a superb talent with a huge amount of natural ability. He’s definitely worth a look from a Posh point of view despite the step up in class.
St Ives Posh I KNOW the non-league scene very well in this area as youth county manager, chairman and director of football for St Ives to 2010 and this season as Godmanchester first-team manager.
I am also a closet Peterborough fan and, having seen Conor play, his rate of improvement over the past two years has been outstanding.
Take it from me, he will make an impression given the chance and will score goals at any level even the Championship.
Give the lad a chance and he will repay you tenfold with goals galore. The cost to Peterborough will be minimal and he’ll be a steal.
nevspire GREAT, we are so going to stay up now. Signing United Counties League players, non-league players, and Leaguetwo players. Why can’t Posh ever sign anyone from Championship level. It’s annoying as we certainly have funds from the sales of Craig Mackail-smith, Ryan Bennett and Aaron Mclean.
POSHJESS THIS would be one that we take a low-cost chance on and I wouldn’t expect him to be partneringtyrone Barnett in August.
He will probably cost a set of tracksuits and a reserve team friendly for St Ives.
If it doesn’t work out we haven’t wasted loads of cash and the lad has had a great experience.
If it does work out well look at how much Paultaylor cost us. His 12 Championship goals were probably the lowest cost per goal in that league by a mile!
Yaxleyposh HE’S a young local guy who we are taking on a three-day trial to see if he has potential. Sounds like a sensible move to me.
Too many clubs don’t look in their own back yards or discard kids for being too small at the age of 16. Good job Barcelona didn’t do that with Messi, Iniesta and Xavi.
Writtle33 NOTHING ventured nothing gained! 52 goals in any league is worth a look so good luck to Conor and let’s hope he is another golden nugget we have unearthed.
maza57 DEFINITELY worth a look. Of course he is not going to be as fit as a pro footballer and we are only looking at him on a trial basis.
Bamboozler On other Posh transfer targets . . . I WATCHED both League One play-off games and thought Michael Bostwick (Stevenage) would make a headless chicken look like Lionel Messi.
He may be better than the performances suggest, but BOSTWICK was very, very poor to say the least. Forget him and move on. The only Stevenage player on view who looked anything like a good prospect was Luke Freeman.
daddles I AGREE about Bostwick and Stephen Gleeson (MK Dons) kept giving the ball away. Darren Potter looked the better of their two midfielders.
However, I’m only going on televised games whereas there are much better judges than me.
Boro-for-a-pie BOSTWICK did look poor in the play-offs, but so did Gleeson, as he gave the ball away more often than Exodus Geohaghon. But it doesn’t mean they are bad players and I’d love them I CAN’T believe no-one is mentioning Lawrie Wilson from Stevenage. Play Craig Alcock at left-back, and Wilson on the right.
Gettommy Rowe on the bench or preferably the stands where he belongs.
Staceyf ADAM Drury is now out of contract at Norwich. I have it on good authority that Posh have registered an interest.
Whodunnit BOSTWICK is a good passer and hard-tackling midfielder and I must have watched another game the other night as I saw Gleeson give the ball away once the whole game. Both players are better I’M delighted that Hibbert is fit. I actually saw him score a goal for us once! Who knows if he can make an impression in Championship?
covposh I’VE got a funny feeling Dave Hibbert is going to be the stand out striker next year.
I’ve only ever seen him play for a few minutes really, in a friendly against Forest, and he looked decent.
