    Our gobshite El Presidente DMac on his hard truth podcast was alleging that when 16 year old Adler Nacimento left Posh to join Palace at the start of the season he & his family were paid by a foreign agent £250k signing on fee ( not bad cash for a 16 year old ) & the agent also pocketted £260k for themselves .

    Palace offered Posh £300k which we've allegedly turned down as derisory & are now going to a tribunal , can't blame the lad or his family , life changing cash , he could get injured & career over in a mili second .

    He had a lot of critics over the way he ran the club, but he put a lot of money in and kept us financially stable, not sure what will happen now, I assume ownership will go to his son to begin with but not sure of his long term plans

    Wow, seeing that message from David Brooks was a shock to the system. He sounds positive about the prognosis though so fingers crossed the treatment sorts it out!

    Fingers crossed he pulls through. I remember watching him in our academy at 16 where his shorts went below his knees, seeing him turn into a brilliant footballer - thought he was going right to the top before the glandular fever slowed him down and now this.

    Wishing him all the best.

    Thought about the glandular fever when they broke the news, apparently there’s a link between the two.

    He’ll be ok, he’s due some good luck at some point surely.

    Just seen the news, hopefully it's early enough to treat effectively.

    The campaign to stop Posh relocating to a new 19.5k stadium has now gone online with an e-petition being posted.

    They already have 1,700 signatures whereas a campaign to save a 600 year oak tree the other side of the city has only 500 .

    Most of the opposition has come from the Labour party , If it were a cricket ground being proposed it'd have been rubber stamped by now .

    The area is only used 5/6 times a year for circus's etc... & people who walk their dogs & or short cut , I can see this dragging on for years & years whereas to re do the main stand & London Road end would be a more viable process , nothing wrong with half of our ground , the other half is well past its sell by date but has that ol' skool character !
