Just for a moment I was hopeful. After the fight back at Burnley, surely even Allardyce would get the message, especially given Posh's annoying habit of scoring goals, meaning you are likely to need at least two to beat them. Invite them on and you will concede. Attack them and you will score. The conclusion you should draw from that is simple enough isn't it?
But now comes the news that Vaz Te and Faubert could be back for tomorrow's game. So that's that then. Faubert on the right, Cole down the middle and Vaz Te on the left - Allardyce's preferred "FRONT THREE". Cole can't score, Faubert can't score and Vaz Te isn't prolific, but what the hell?
Expect another night of frustration. No matter what the evidence, this man Allardyce is not for turning!
