The entertainers executioners

It seems Saturday's defeat at our hands was rather more damaging for Peterborough than simply sending them to the foot of the table - reports are surfacing that Darren Ferguson has been sacked.

It's bizarre, to say the least - Posh may be struggling to acclimatise to the Championship, but Fergie Jr had led them to successive promotions and only in the summer was acclaimed as "the best young manager in the country" by his chairman Darragh MacAnthony. As for the timing, it's not honking our own horn to say that we'll comprehensively outplay a lot of our rivals on our own patch this season, so for the Posh hierarchy to fully expect their team to take something from the match is rather unrealistic. I thought much the same earlier in the season when we beat Plymouth by the same 3-1 scoreline and there were rumours about Paul Sturrock getting the boot. Surely it's losses to the teams in and around them that are the most important?

Still, the fact that a promising young manager has lost his job has nothing to do with us. To be hard-nosed about it, let's hope we keep repeating the trick and more managers wind up on the dole queue shortly after we've put their sides to the sword.
