Posh! Never was a team less aptly named. Place is a shit-hole like most of the rest of the E Midlands (Kettering, Northampton, Rushden, Corby etc).

We should win this. They don't have a recognised striker, their away form is worse than our home form, and they are managed by the spawn of satan.

Like LD, I'm expecting that the large unit will get a trundle round the pitch today. Just hope he leaves the cow's arse and banjo at home.

2-1 to us.

Ha Ha fc. If we've been on the beach already for the last couple of weeks Peterborough  have hit the happy hour and sinking a few cocktails around the poolside karaoke bar whilst the sun goes down. Easily the worst team ive seen at ER this season, (sorry, second worst). I'll do a full report but suffice it to say we looked pretty decent though and brace yersen whilst i put the ol' tin hat on. It was the best center forward performance in a white shirt at ER I've seen all year

2 goals for Billy! Ken is bound to use this as a reason to have Paynter kept on next season, rather than having him destroyed humanely, the only sane response in a rational world.

I can see the Clarkeonenil sub-title now..."Milton thinks one swallow makes a summer"....

Breaking through the Pennine rain frontier where there are more reservoirs than betting shops but the same amount of customers we emerged into the Gildersome sunshine before MrsSparks dropped us off in town for a brace in Foleys and the FA Cup Semi. Liverpool fans seem to go unmolested in town unlike the lone ManU fan here a few weeks ago. We left comparing the respective attributes of Carol and Paynter and concluded they were the same in all but 30 odd million pound notes and luck.

All change down at the taps. Smart efficient attentive staff busy and keen, maybe they read this. With the Tetleys back on form happy days may be here again. Well, away from LS11 at least.

Billy and Charley Taylor starting along with Rogers confirmed Warnocks pre match statements of change and we attacked the kop immediately with Billy bearing down on the bovine backside of goal banjo it the ready. His side foot attempt was saved and the beast was spared again. A minute later Billy had his head in hands as his header was saved off the line whilst Snods simultaneously shook his. We continued the pressurizing start. Their keeper made a terrific save following a cross in from the right and more fluency followed involving Clayton and Snods but finished with a poor Ross ball.

Paynter won a good header and was in the box for the returned cross again from the right but the header went harmlessly over. Odea was back defending well as Posh made their first attack. On Eleven minutes the unfortunate Rogers limped off to be replaced by Weber and our good start unfolded especially when four Leeds defenders were caught ball watching as Peterborough broke.

Taylor at left back commenced a horrific half for him by slipping as he turned back to let Peterborough in but they spared his blushes shooting wide. Back we came with Pugh overhitting a ball through to Weber and Ross took a clattering receiving the ball to no sympathy from the ref. It was the visitors female Physio firt on to the pitch rushing to their man down to the sporadic muted derision from the renaissance new loaded men around us.

Another good lay off from Billy was l ost and Posh broke from it sending a far post cross in that we rescued for a corner.  Snods was drifting right and a Posh player received a harsh yellow for a fair tackle. The free kick was met by Bromby but cleared for a corner. Snods continued his right wing pressure along with Clayton this time O'Dea finishing with a weak header.

Ross and Snods over elaborated an interchange but Clayton picked it up and crossed to Weber whose header was saved but it was beginning to look a half decent if half cocked performance. Snods possibly in preparation for a Prem move was practising his going to ground technique instead of crossing after a harmless shoulder contact. Clayton was then harshly penalised minutes later for a perfectly good tackle. Snods carried on the deception with another embarrassing fall following a cute nutmeg of the defender by Clayton i think.

Our turn to defend then but the visitors break ended with a wayward shot over. At the other end Weber decided a ball from Taylor wasn't worth chasing which may have been a factor in Charley dithering on the ball moments later in his own box getting robbed and we were 0-1 down.

If the crowd were despondently resigned then the players certainly weren't as we hit back with a good build up. Snods curled a free kick high. A glancing header by Paynter off a throw was met with a saved Clayton shot as Peterborough held off more pressure. In fact they did break out but Lonergan saved well. We hit back as Pieman hit the bar. Snods and Ross both lost possession but the ball was won back by Billy who sprayed the ball wide. The keeper dropped the cross and a slightly embarrassed Billy was on hand to tap in the equaliser on the stroke of half time.

Robinson came on for the second half to replace the hapless Taylor who may well have banged his own final nail for gifting them the first goal.

From the kick off we went 2-1 up with Ross squeezing in from close range. Peterborough launched an immediate response but Billy was on hand twice in quick succession to head clear the danger and set up a swift break through Clayton and Weber whose cross was met by Ross to make it 3-1 and a WTFIGO chant from the kop. Snods tried to resurrect normal service giving Robinson a hospital pass for a yellow card to Robinson and a harsh stare for Snods

Lees hoofed into touch following a piece of back four possession to confirm we were not actually watching Brazil and on came the physio again this time to a more enlightened response. They won a free kick and curled it wide as they gave the impression they would rather be elsewhere. Meanwhile Billy had something to prove and won a great challenge along with Robinson who piled on the pressure with good deep harassing as we took complete control. Billy dropped a shoulder and ghosted past two defenders and finished an excellent performance hitting in a good Snods pass to make it 4-1.

We continued the dominance but slack finishing and wayward shooting kept the score at four. Billy volleyed over and half volleyed wide and successive corners followed, C'mon Billy came the chant as a hat trick was a distinct possibility. "I'm off home, before we lose" said my mate from home as he made his way down the steps. Billy fed Weber with a terrific reverse pass and was replaced by Becchio to the kind of appreciation once reserved for the Big Argy himself. Lucciano's firt call into action came moments later as he hit the deck claiming a foul.

Well if that sounds like the Billy show i didn't mean it to be but i call it as i see it and it was the best center forward display in a white shirt for some considerable time. One swallow does not make a summer but a swift return of Somma night make a difference. That has its own dangers of course with ridiculous claims of "two new signings" coming from the Bates bunker. It has come to this hasn't it. A positive display that fills you with dread about the consequences, i need a summer break but it isn't going to happen. What we do this Summer is so important so inevitably i will be glued to the rumour vine and speculation branch along with everybody else.

Pleased that Billy has trebled his goal count but I fear that someone else will have to fill his shorts next season.
