Ferguson's men won just eight league matches at London Road last term and lost 10 times in front of their own supporters, contributing to their relegation from the Championship.

Posh begin life back in League One with a home game against Swindon and also host Oldham and Crawley in August with just two of their five league fixtures that month - Notts County and Tranmere - away.

"It's pleasing that we start the season in front of our own supporters," said Ferguson.

"Our home form will be vital. It wasn't good enough last season and that needs to be put right.

"I've had a good look at the fixtures and I believe the first five games are good ones for us. It's important we start the season well."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
