“Ha, yes I am pretty proud that we have kept the transfer silence for so long.
“Baz has been as good as gold and it was the gaffer who broke cover and spoke about (Danny) Swanson and Paul Jones so I will have to remind him of that as he was the one who asked for the gagging order!”
What emotion best summed you up when you heard Jones had signed for a League One club rather than Posh?
“Let’s make something clear, Paul Jones didn’t choose Crawley over us at all.
“His agent was on non-stop telling us he would sign, but wanted to look at other options.
“If we had really wanted Jonesey a deal was there to be done.”
Has the transfer silence helped the club in their negotiations with prospective new players?
“Definitely. We have a great record of unearthing gems and if targets get out it makes life difficult for us.
“That’s why I didn’t like the ET article about Swanson as it gave agents leverage we didn’t need them to have.”
The bookies have Posh as favourites to be relegated. Where do you think we will finish?
“I don’t pay any attention to bookies.
“I’ll let the gaffer know our targets and objectives when we meet at the Portugal training camp and when we have our 22-man squad ready to go.
“We will be looking to improve top to bottom for sure.”
If money was no object who would you sign for your club?
“That list would be long!
“But I’d still not sign players on 20-30k per week as I don’t think it’s right for a Championship club to do that, especially with the new financial rules coming in.
“ I love our policy and I wouldn’t swap it for any other club’s.”
Are there any contract extension discussions going on with current Posh players?
“Yes we will be sitting down with three players who deserve new deals. No names sorry.”
Can you reveal the ‘unavoidable’
“A mixture of reasons. Supplier stopped making the other one and the sponsor’s logo changed.
“I apologised to fans through my app as it was something I said wouldn’t happen every year.
“ I hold my hand up to getting that wrong.”
Can you say when the building work on the Moy’s End stand will start?
“Best speak to Bob Symns about the Moy’s.
“I don’t want to create drama if I start talking about the stadium right now.”
Can you at this moment in time ever see yourself leaving a) Posh b) football.
“Leaving Posh: Yes. Leaving football: No.
“I love owning a football club and would buy another one in a heartbeat.
“The only reason I’d leave Posh would be if I felt unwelcome or if I’d done all I can do.
“I adore and love owning Posh and only want good things for the club and the city, but at times I need help and for the city to want what I want regarding the stadium and training facilities so our club can get better and bigger.
“And it would help to bring more income into the city itself, while helping to put the city on the map.”
And the best Posh-related decision you have made?
“Bringing Fergie back!”
What Posh result did you most enjoy?
“The play-off final last year for sure.”
What was the motivation for your forthcoming autobiography and your well-received app?
“The book was just a way to recap an exciting period in my life. It’s a mixture of all good and bad that’s happened since I bought the club, plus some things you guys never really knew about.
“I also thought it was a good idea allowing Barry Fry and the gaffer to give their side of things which they do in their own chapters.
“The app was an idea form Neil Gilby at the club and it’s a good fun way of inter-acting with football fans everywhere.”
