‘Pathetic’, ‘Embarrassing’ – Peterborough United update has plenty of fans in discussion

Published

on

Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney has released a statement on the club’s official website addressing the new song that the Posh supporters have made for him.

Whilst the song shows the overwhelming love that the fans have for their striker, it is by no means clean which is why the player has taken the time to address the issue.

Both the love shown and chant have come as a result of the striker’s recent form in front of goal. Toney has grabbed 11 goals and two assists in just his opening 15 matches and is – along with his fellow strike partner Mohamed Eisa – the division’s top scorer. The highlight of his season so far came in a 6-0 riot over Rochdale in September; the 23-year-old grabbed a 40-minute hat-trick in the game

In the statement, Toney does take the time to thank the supporters for their support and acknowledges the love he continues to receive, but just asks that the song might be altered so that the younger generation of Posh fans can join in to.

The club Tweeted the statement.

The Posh fans had mixed opinions about the statement. Some were pleased and thought it was necessary.

Others – it’s fair to say – didn’t and think it’s a little too much to be making a statement about.
