Gayle took his haul for the season to 10 with three goals in the first 27 minutes thanks to left-foot, right-foot and headed strikes as Posh held out for a precious 3-2 win.

"He's a very good player. He's better than I thought he would be," Ferguson said.

"He's technical, doesn't give the ball away, and makes clever runs. He's the real deal. There's no question about that.

"He will score goals. He's a goalscorer. I thought him and (Nathaniel) Mendez were a real threat today.

"I don't know if we should have been hanging on as it doesn't justify our performance in the first half, which was outstanding.

"To come here and be 3-0 up, and it could have been more. I thought my players were outstanding."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
