'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fry names his price

With the entire squad up for sale and not owning their own ground, Peterborough United would not appear to be the most attractive proposition for a Ukranian oil magnate looking to invest in a football club.

But were such an investor to exist, POSH owner Barry Fry has named the price it would cost before he would up and leave London Road.

1.5m

...which would appear to be higher than the 650k previously quoted last time this story reared its head.

After failing to reach the playoffs this season following relegation last season I find it very unlikely that anyone would want to throw that sort of cash at a club whose average attendances have plummeted in the last three seasons.

But if there were, and they did, then I think POSH would rocket into the ground of favourites for League 2 next season...

We shall see.

I am Posh Fan and sometimes i am embarressed to say that not because where we are in the Football Leagues or Baz no because we must be the worst fan in the whole country. If it wasn't for Baz then there wouldn't be a team in Peterborough because Peter Boizot nearly put a stop to that. Not only do they call for him to leave, they attack there own players. The thing that really gets me is if we didn't have baz then we wouldn't get half the decent clubs down at london road like we do every pre season, ie Man U, Spurs, Birmingham, fulham. Andif you go to one of these games they stands are packed but then the season starts and there is no one. It takes the P**S. Baz is a character of football people only know who peterborough are because of him. The bloke is a legend but i think yes his time at the club should soon come to end before his health is really affected. My message to Baz. YOUR A LEGEND AND WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN IN THE HEARTS OF TRUE POSH FANS. Cheers MD
