    He was appointed to keep us up which he failed massively to achieve.

    Now I don't care what he did at Blackpool but his results since he joined us have been woeful.

    He gets given a 2 year contract on the bad of poor results.

    The football is poor.

    Now, this isn't a Bowyer out thread as yet but he currently just isn't cutting it.

    Anderson, Devine and Colville new contracts- I mean come on.

    Bowyer needs to vastly improve his results here or Rhodes/Rupp will have to make a decision quickly.

    Christ on a bike. One game into the new season.

    Imagine being Peterborough, who’ve spent big money this summer, getting stuffed 1-3 at home on the opening day.

    Bowyer is the best man for the job.

    Bowyer will get 10 games before the return of PP.

    Not judging him on 1 game. His win ratio is shocking at this club.

    Please explain why he is the best man for the job?

    Tactically inept

    We still have time to bring in players, lets see what he brings in. If he plays DVD together again he’ll go down in my estimation quickly.

    Went don't in my estimation when he offered Anderson, Devine and Colville new contracts.

    The state of our bench today was embarrassing

    Agree. If he hasn't seen enough from today to work out that playing all 3 together is never going to work, we may have a problem.

    He wasn't appointed to keep us up.

    Who ever said that?

    Only you, Fordy, a guy with the patience of a zombie from 28 days later.

    Today, I’m not impressed with his choices

    He was brought in after the January transfer window. Couldn’t put his stamp on team. Used the period to assess what was needed this summer.

    He’s now had time to make his stamp but we’ve had only 90 mins of football, with a new team getting to know each other after notable summer changes.

    Blackpool went up with a solid defence - they weren’t free scoring - and he’s set us up, primarily, to be tough to break down too. Clean sheet today. ROD was barely troubled in goal.

    MID and ATT need tinkering on today’s show......that’s perfectly normal for a team in transition like us though?

    I listened to his post match comments on the way home and disagreed with every single word he said.

    I like Bowyer.

    But Jermaine Anderson is absolutely dog shit and I’ll struggle to back anyone who wants to keep playing him

    Take out Donaldson and Vaughan and this team could be average league 2 unless we bolster that weak midfield.

    People have been well and truly sold by Bowyers media rhetoric. He may love the club and it’s history etc but the club needs results.

    Defence looks strong, the forward line should be strong as long as they are given opportunities, midfield looks woefully weak. No width and no physical presence.

    Players like Mccartan, Paudie and Akpan on paper will make us stronger, but they’re not left footed midfielders and we have no out and out left sided midfield / attacker.

    Gibson did ok today, but I’ve still yet to see much out of him to suggest he’ll be good enough. If we’re relying on Devine, Coalville and Anderson as the engine room we’ll have a problem. We are 2-3 short, left wing and midfield must be the priority

    Problem is we've handed out contracts to devine, Anderson and Colville so we're stacked with shite in midfield. I can't see us signing a midfielder unless akpan moves on.
