    At the start of the season I was considering trying to get odds on him getting called up to the Turkey squad at some point in his career. :)

    You'd probably still get good odds...well worth a flutter!

    How does that work? Can you just call up a bookies and ask for odds on something like that?

    Just thought I'd post to update you swaggering dandies on the goings-on at Franchise FC on Saturday.

    Erhun started on Saturday and we basically got sucker-punched with two fairly soft goals in the first half-hour. Erhun was arguably the best player we had on the park at that time and had very nearly squared matters when we were just the one goal down with a sweet, dipping 25 yard effort that whacked the crossbar (see short highlights below). Shortly after the second goal went in, Ferguson took off our only pukka right-back (we thought he might have been injured but wasn't) and then, to our abject horror, he took Erhun off and replaced him with out-of-form Marcus Maddison.



    The Posh fans have, by and large, been very patient during the recent poor form but this hackneyed substitution was greeted first by boos and then by chants of "You don't know what you're doing". This suggestion was given validation as Posh basically folded from this point and conceded a third goal just before the break.

    At the substitution, I went across to speak to Erhun's family to apologise to them for Fergie's weird gambit and told them that I was fairly sure that this was Ferguson's way of submitting his resignation and that he'd be gone on Monday. He knows full well that Erhun is pretty much the most popular player amongst the fans although most have been convinced that this popularity has brought out the contrarian in Fergie. As it happens, the Chairman was thinking the same as I was and Darren Ferguson's notable stewardship of Peterborough United ended abruptly on Saturday evening rather than Monday. Just to make the severance more emphatic - the whole first-team coaching and support staff had their contracts terminated at the same time.

    I was a bit sceptical at HT that the second-half might turn out to be punctuated by "Fergie Out" chants yet remarkably, the 1800 travelling fans "did a Dulwich Hamlet" and elected to disregard the score and get behind the team quite noisily for the rest of the proceedings even though it was somewhat evident that we didn't have the wherewithall to get back into the fixture. I was relatively subdued myself as I was wondering who the next manager might be and how most of the players would have to prove themselves all over again to a new boss. I was particularly concerned that some proponent of agricultural football might arrive and utter the words "he's too short for a footballer" when evaluating our most skilfull player by far.

    The good news for you guys is, to the very best of my knowledge, at the time of writing, that Gavin Rose isn't in the picture although the Chairman has pointed out, quite specifically, that his principal target may not be available at this time.

    Hope you have a great day out on Saturday on the coast and bring back the bacon.

    The new manager needs to build the team around him :)

    Not quite to the same level as Gavin did but his team-mates need to get tuned into him pronto. Nobody's making runs for him and nobody's got the confidence to pick him out in the spaces he always finds.

    He's picking up all manner of accolades and awards but the truth is that the Posh fans haven't seen anywhere near the best of him yet. I personally believe that he's good enough for the Championship but that he's being denied the opportunities to demonstrate this thus far.

    Thanks P 'n' P! Always great to hear from you on here. I must admit I've been following Posh with ludicrous intensity since Erhun moved there and I'm very familar with the general goings on but I'm not at the actual games of course so it's brill to hear from someone who is. Just really really happy Erhun has been playing well when given the chance to be honest and is clearly holding his own (and then some) at that level. Wish you Posh guys all the best and it'd be great to see Erhun prosper as the entire club do. Hoping to make it along to a Posh game before the season is out with my bespoke "I heard a rumour" Turkish top on full show.

    Cheers :) I need to get back to Champion Hill for a more relaxed afternoon but the fixtures seem to clash frequently (I live in Camden). Looking forward to the pre-season friendly presuming the arrangement is honoured (hopefully on a Saturday).

    I would guess the pre-season would be a midweeker, as The Posh would save their Saturdays for more lucrative home pre-seasons.

    Check out about 4mins in for Erhun's beautiful long run & shot to put Posh dev squad 3-2 up against Cambridge on Tuesday afternoon. Sounds like he put in a decent performance aside from that wonders strike too so here's hoping he gets back in their 1st team squad for the next game, though I must admit it seems like the new temp bosses at Posh don't fancy him too much. Real shame, if so.

    Ferguson 2nd favourite for Pompey job. Views Posh 'n Proud? Erhun to join him hopefully!

    I saw that whilst Peterborough lost at the weekend, but Erhun came off the bench...

    You may well get Fergie who'd certainly get Pompsmouth out of L2 with a moderate breeze. As for your second assertion, Dunc - nah!

    Erhun's first start for seven weeks last night in a new system = another MOtM. Personally, I thought he was nowhere near the level he could attain with a freer role but the paying punters are certainly happy with what they see.

    The 2014-15 manager situation has been to his detriment as has having his first professional pre-season ruined by injury and a subsequent operation. Nonetheless, he's already proved that he's comfortable at L1 level and well on his way to proving us all absolutely correct - I think there's at least a Championship player in there.

    we've got a great peice from Posh 'n Proud in tomorrow's new fanzine reflecting on Erhun's first season with the Posh!

    Not sure about great but it was lengthy before you had to squeeze it into the alloted space!

    It's such a waste of talent. I can only hope that he moves to a team where he is appreciated, sooner rather than later.

    The thing for me is...if he is not given a chance at Peterborough United...well that will simply be their loss.
    He is just too good NOT to be picked up by another professional club.

    He only played yesterday because several of the U-18s have a cup semi-final today. Erhun very likely to feature in the first-team on Saturday.

    Conversely, the reluctant caretaker manager at Posh is fairly unlikely to feature in first-team affairs next season; Chairman is very keen to return to attacking football on the deck and will recruit accordingly next month :)

    Ta. I see the team is marked up on the board behind. Obvious which one Erhun is!
