Re: vs Peterborough

It was a disappointing afternoon in front of another decent home attendance. We did create a few decent chances today but Peterborough created far more. Are defensive unit couldn't handle dembele and Toney in particular. We have developed a bad habit of conceding from set pieces (something we resolutely didn't last season).
I thought kee held up play well today. As others commented are possesion was gifted to easily at times and the posh could exploit us well counter attacking. Ripley made some great saves but also had some uncertain moments. Clark went from seeming world class on boxing Day to ineffective today. Yep, as long as we can get to 55 points initially we can forget today and move on! Will be an interesting January, with seeing if we can improve the team in transfer window, the cup runs (I feel we can get to Wembley this year) and hopefully some more 3 point wins In the bag.

Re: vs Peterborough

I though Peterborough looked a good team - especially up front. I didnít think Stanley were too bad actually. We created a good few chances - especially Clarkís miss just before their first goal.
Our passing was a bit lax.

I thought we did look more of a threat when Zanzala came on but not sure itís that clear cut that heís a better option than 5 in midfield. But Conneely needs to be playing better if heís in there.

Hard to pick a MOTM, maybe Ihekwe, possibly Finley. Thought Kee did ok.

The stats sum it all up.
Only 34% possession over 93 minutes - at home!

Seems all opponents need do is to neutralise Kee & we're toothless.
'Posh's hat-trick Toney sinks Stanley's one trick pony!'
Lyrical and moderately accurate !... 8/10 !. 😎

Have a good and healthy 2019 Lord S !.

Re: vs Peterborough

Have to say the arrogant celebration by Bennett in front of our fans after he'd dug Anderton in the head on his way to nodding in their third goal & the handball which was ignored seconds before Toney added the final one did leave a bad taste in the mouth, sour grapes - maybe? Then again, you only have to look at who their manager is & such behaviour isn't totally unexpected

Re: vs Peterborough

[QUOTE=choirboy;1221273][B][COLOR="Sienna"]We were really poor today with the majority of our players probably having their worst game ever in a Stanley shirt![

that was our problem yesterday as you maybe can carry a couple who are having off days but when the whole team looks tired and jaded then you have problems. for me its pointless having a large squad of players when they never get used. is it coleys loyalty to some or does he not rate the others. if the latter is the case we might try and get rid of some in january and bring in players who he thinks can do a job.

more funny results today than ours. spurs beaten at home, oldham win 4-1 after being hammered 6 nil in their previous game. with 5 games to play in 15 days no wonder you get off days and odd results. one thing for sure we will not loose 4 nil at bradford on new years day.

Is that the same Bradford who also won 0-4 at Rochdale yesterday?
Hope youíre right and that the Voodoo Gods arenít listening.

Re: vs Peterborough

Just a couple of observations from one who wasnít there but has watched, in agony, the so-called highlights!
Criticism of Sir Billy when heís alone up front seems a tad unfair. Has always seemed to me that his role then is not to be Roy of the Rovers, and be able to beat an entire defence single-handedly before smashing the ball in the net. His primary job, as Chevyfire noted, is to receive, control, and lay off to on-rushing colleagues. Of the three first-half Ďchancesí shown the video, Billy did that in two of them.
I suspect it wasnít hand ball by the Posh player in the box. Looked like he probably used his chest to control the ball, but it was his bosom that was on the wrong side of the Clayton End but the right side for the ref.
