Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has launched an astonishing attack on the Championship basement boys and has branded their season so far "a disaster".
Having claimed back-to-back promotions, Posh have struggled in the second tier and have registered just three wins from 26 league games, leaving them nine points adrift of safety.
MacAnthony told the club's official website, www.theposh.com: "I have to apologise to all Posh fans for this season up until now. It's been nothing short of a disaster and I can understand their frustrations."
He added: "I am done with defending the players, previous management, current management and everyone else at the football club top to bottom.
"Nobody has been good enough this season - we have failed our fans in the worst possible way and this has resulted in us being bottom of the league and heading for League One in a hurry.
"Everybody thinks we are as good as down and have given up on us already. Well I am ready to go down fighting tooth and nail to the final game and, if the last two years have taught me anything, maybe it's best not to write off this team yet."
