    Magician X - like something out of Marvel Comics. Nothing comical about how we've yet to deploy him properly though.

    Word on Twitter is that you'll have your old comrades the Turkish Ultras (including the House Magician himself) behind you again tomorrow night and (hopefully) on Sunday.

    Lovely shot of our new stand in the background. We may have seats in it by the end of next season!!

    Ps I was there for his Posh debut

    There's a fair possibility that tonight's final pre-season game at Bishops Stortford will be streamed live via the Posh YouTube channel.

    There's also a fair possibility that this could be Erhun's last game for Posh for reasons which I'll divulge if it actually comes to that :(

    What?! That doesn't sound good. Thanks for the heads up on the streamed game

    Stream is likely but not certain - I'm going anyways :)

    I was surprised Erhun's contract wasn't cut up for this season given the new Posh boss clearly doesn't like him. What's the point in keeping him on if he's got the usual issue - ie, height?

    This fills my heart with joy. I hope he can find a team befitting of his marvelous talents.

    Read an interview with Peterborough's new manager the other day and he seems like a joyless military plank. He also banged on about his love of hard work in players, but didn't mention Erhun - who I think is one of the hardest-working lower-league forwards I've ever seen.

    It's the fall back British manager approach isn't it. By 'hard-working' he means 'kicks other players up into the air/ostentatiously charges half way across the pitch to get nowhere near a tackle.' See also 'passion.' Obviously foreign teams like, say, Barcelona, aren't hard working even though their players are moving constantly.

    ETA: We're amazingly lucky to have been able to hang on to a manager like Gavin when the higher levels are absolutely stuffed with planks like this.

    Thanks in no small part to the power of collective wishful-thinking in two separate parishes, you'll be pleased to hear that Dave Robertson has succeeded in his objective of never including Erhun Oztumer in the matchday squad come hell or high water.

    Private Robertson was relieved of his command at 13.00hrs 6 September 2015. Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah.

    Tweet Dmac and make sure next manager builds their team around Erhun as the number 10 :)

    Darragh knows exactly how I feel. You guys can remind him of this course of action though - @DMAC102

    darryl this wasn't supposed to happen

    I toyed with going up to Peterborough to watch Charlton in the League Cup but didn't bother when I saw the chances of seeing Erhun were pretty much zilch. Hope the next Posh boss has a bit more sense.

    I THINK Erhun is likely to be in the matchday squad this afternoon at Oldham. Grant McCann is presently acting as Caretaker and has spoken this week about how he wants his midfielders hungry for the ball and how he wants movement in possession. It might be mere platitudes or it may be that Erhun's determination and patience could finally pay off....

    We won't know till 2.50pm I guess :)

    Good luck at (both) Hampton & Richmond this afternoon!

    Just to update you fine folk on the last couple of weeks, it's all been pretty excellent until around 8.00pm yesterday evening.

    Considering he's been restored to a starting berth from near stone-cold, he's been pretty fucking awesome despite being principally deployed at 9 O'Clock within a diamond/rhombus midfield. His normal repertoire has been augmented by some impressive housework when opponents have been in possession and he's made some quality tackles and interceptions. Massive credit to him for staying so sharp whilst the newly appointed youth manager at Southend was treating him so poorly.

    Unfortunately, he was fed a poor ball across the face of Bury's penalty area last night and he lunged to try and reach the ball as a defender was closing fast. Zero malice and huge determination but his studs were showing and he inadvertently collected the defender. The ref had given a properly dodgy handball decision against Erhun just moments earlier and words were exchanged - I think that was what clinched the red (0:30)

    He's obviously gutted but he's made such an excellent impression since his return that he'll be able to take this in his stride and come back even better soon enough. I'm quietly confident that Gavin will be proved correct with his assertion that Erhun can cut it at Championship level - whether this is with Posh or not remains to be seen but he's knocking down the barriers like a flimsy Leatherhead retaining wall at the moment and he's worthy of a more auspicious platform than L1 IMO.

    He's proving to be a fine extended ambassador for the Hamlet. Just like you/I knew he would :cool:

    It does look a bit naughty, and the ref had a perfect view. He also uses his right foot, which he normally only uses for standing on!

    Absolutely delighted to see the top of the Isthmian Premier Division this evening.

    Just a few lines to let you know (probs many of you do anyways) that Erhun's properly ignited now. The coaching squad has realised that if his colleagues move into any space at all, he will spot them and play jaw-dropping passes - 20,30,40,50 yards, makes no odds. Absolute sensation in the first half this afternoon against Doncaster Rovers. Despite playing a bit deeper than you might expect, he's scored a goal and an assist in each of the last two games and has gone home with yet another bottle of champagne and the sound of a rapturous standing ovation ringing in his ears.

    He's also costing me a fortune - I'm sponsoring his goals for the Free Kicks Foundation and find myself going to games I might otherwise have listened to on the radio.

    Good luck on Tuesday against Merstham - it's raining goals in Tuscany this time of year :thumbs:

    Cheers! Any contract news? Was he not only on a two year contract expiring this year? He might leave no? As not everyone loves him as much as you? I saw some Neanderthal on your forum when he was out of favour saying he was always too small.

    There's still two (now quiet) folk on Twitter who don't rate him. Two LOL.

    There's an option for a third year at the end of the second - I understand Posh have to exercise this in December. I'm expecting that we'll make an improved offer to extend it a bit farther than that. Anything he gets will be well deserved though - he's still exactly the same lad as far as graft, passion and team-work go.

    We do need promotion though. My feeling is that he'll fully use the additional time on the ball he'd get in the second tier to really devastating effect. Anything can happen for him then I guess.
