Struggling Posh swooped to the points with alarming ease courtesy of goals from Lee Tomlin, Tommy Rowe and Dwight Gayle - but Solbakken refused to point the finger at his players.

He said: "Rather than pointing fingers at the players I will take the blame myself. Sometimes when one, two or three players have an off day you can explain it.

"But I think I saw seven, eight or nine players have a really bad day with the ball. Defensively we were vulnerable to counter-attacks and I didn't see any belief after it was 2-0.

"We had the ball all the time but we didn't open them up in the second half so I have to look at myself in the mirror and see what I have done wrongly in the preparation of the tactics."

He added: "It was a hard blow for us and it will be hard to retain mental strength before Saturday (against Ipswich). Mentally we were weak. It should not be a catastrophe going 1-0 down against Peterborough with 75 minutes left.

"We didn't look lively and that disturbs me. The body language was like 'ok we will go out and steal the points maybe using as less power or strength as possible'.

"That doesn't work in this division and that really annoys me. It is my responsibility. That I can say. When so many players don't seem to be up for it I have to take the responsibility and that is how it is in this game."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
