‘It’s about the time of year for him to be sacked’ – Many Ipswich fans lash out as rival manager lets rip

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has drawn the anger of some Ipswich fans with a rather barbed attack on them keeping his Posh side off the top of the table.

Peterborough are currently third in the League One standings, behind Wycombe Wanderers and Ipswich Town. However, Ferguson told Peterborough Today that wouldn’t be the case if his two rivals hadn’t played Bolton Wanderers whilst they were at a low ebb.

“Twenty-eight points from 15 matches is a decent return and let’s not forget if Ipswich and Wycombe hadn’t both played against Bolton’s youth team we might well have been top of the table,” said the former, former and current Posh boss. 

That, of course, has brought fans to social media to poke fun at him as well as have a go back. Wycombe only beat Bolton 2-0 and would probably achieve a similar result against them right now. Ipswich did put five past the hapless Trotters, but Posh have played both of their table-topping rivals and failed to beat either.

That’s one of the points Ipswich fans have since made on Twitter, although one or two are going down the ‘Roy Keane’ route and questioning whether Darren would ever have had a career if it wasn’t for his Dad’s success.
