Time For 'Daddy's Boy' Ferguson To Walk On His Own Feet!

Last updated : 05 November 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor

Darren Ferguson is famous for ... errrrr ... being Sir Alex Ferguson's son.

He's done nowt, won nowt, but - like his dear papa - has a big gob!

But he will see his club make history on Saturday, not because of anything he has done himself ... but because of the MIGHTY NEWCASTLE UNITED!

The match will attract the biggest ever attendance for a Football League match involving Posh, although the REAL 'Posh' (Victoria Beckham) played in front of 87,000 when the Spice Girls played Maddison Square Gardens.

Newcastle are averaging gates in excess of 41,000 for Championsip fixtures this season, and currently the biggest crowd for a Posh match in the Football League is 36,478 for a trip to Crystal Palace in September, 1960.

Ferguson: "It's for games like this that we worked so hard to get into the Championship and why we are so determined to stay there.

"When I was playing, I loved these matches and my own players are the same now. This is the match that the players and fans would have looked for first when the fixtures came out.

"Newcastle is a huge footballing city and their fans are right up there with the best in the country.

"But we are not going up there to enjoy the occasion, we are going up there to work and to get three points.

"In our situation we have to find a way of winning the match so I want three points far more than I want to see a great spectacle."

The club's only other previous League match at Newcastle in 1993 attracted 29,155 which is the fifth biggest crowd for a Posh game.
