Re: Managerial Merry-go-round

Nov 7th - Michael Appleton takes over at Blackpool leaving the sinking ship at Pompey without a captain. BTW - when I checked the other day former U's man Lee Bradbury was the favourite to take over (despite only just taking the helm at Havant & Waterlooville). BTW2 - Di Canio (along with Redkna...

Re: Going Down??

This is going to sound odd but I'm a bit disappointed about today. Yes we were great and a much needed three points but nearly every other result went against us and we haven't pulled away from the drop zone. This was one of our more winnable games and the likes of Rochdale had tougher ones so I was...

Re: Going Down??

No offence taken OY - I hope you're all better now. I've actually agreed with much of what you've written of late (not very interesting to just post something saying I agree though!) but I do think that although under Pep we had some shocking performances, we also had some quality ones as well - Pbo...

Re: Going Down??

The rewriting of history by those on here who wanted Pep out is reaching ridiculous levels. The way we played against Fleetwood was the best we have played since September/October? Really? Losing one nil at home against a team that has struggled all season had a better performance than: - Pboro 1 - ...

Re: Going Down??

I would add to that list getting rid of Pep in the first place. He managed to get more out of this team than Faz or Robinson with less resources as well. If you take a look at Rochdale's run in (4 games out of 6 at home and a away game at ours), Oldhams and AFC Wombles I would argue we are favourite...

Re: Karl Robinson

What's the evidence that this wasn't Tigers first choice all along - if anything the evidence suggests otherwise. We couldn't appoint him until he had left Charlton - hence the delay. Other names in the frame (or at least with the bookies) were available and if they had been first choice they could ...

Re: Who do you want next?

Perhaps another way of looking at it is that despite having a team of duffers and injury prone players Pep got us playing some sublime stuff at times and we were always in touch with the play offs - much better than Apps first season in charge in a lower league. I very much doubt any of his signings...

Re: When do we start panicking?

We did panic - we sacked our manager when we were 3 points off the play offs. We would have had three fewer points now if Pep had stayed. Our wheels were off ages ago. Not sure how you work that one out - we're now on our joint worst run of the season. LAst time we lost three in a row we followed i...

Re: Pep Booted

This decision baffles me. In Apps first season we were in a far worse position but he was given time to turn it around. We've won 3 of our last 5 games and lost 2. Yes Bury was awful but they had a new manager to impress. Our league position is higher than I would expect given: - this is Peps first ...

Re: Who do you want next?

I think Mark Warburton would be a decent shout. Did an amazing job at Brentford and well at Rangers before the Forest curse struck. He seems to be someone who would fit with them buy them young and cheap and sell them young and expensive. Also has a background in the city so him and Eales may get on...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I think whether you think it is the time to panic or not depends on your expectations for this season. If you feel we should be in the play offs as a minimum than yes we should be panicking as we seem to be slipping away from this position. However, as I said in Nov Well with Hall out for 4 months i...

Re: The longest pier you'll ever see

I thought the team showed great spirit in coming away with a draw and although both teams could have got a win it was notable just how few saves either keeper made. A combination of a robust offside trap and the woodwork coming to the rescue. Thomas continues to be a revelation this season, if the b...

Re: Rovers Return

I would imagine Pep agrees that Martin isn't good enough which is why he is 5th choice centre back - what was Apps thinking letting Wright go for him. Our consistently inconsistent strikes again. There is clearly something about this team being the (joint) top scorers in the division. But we are sho...

Re: Doom and Gloom

Well with Hall out for 4 months it is certainly a gloomy season. I think given the injury list, a new manager and a number of players who haven't played in the UK before I would be quite happy with a season of consolidation at this point and be ready to push on next season. If Thomas gets injured I ...
