Re: Re: Twixt Cups and Lips. Home to Shrewbury Town, Tuesday Apr 16th 7-45.

We take care of our business is all I ask. Every game will take a massive effort. I have been around the block too long to believe we "should" win 3-0 or whatever... The ball is round and games unpredictable. You can dominate and lose. That's why we love the game. Full of surprises. All I ask is th...

Re: Twixt Cups and Lips. Home to Shrewbury Town, Tuesday Apr 16th 7-45.

It's going to be a bit heavy going after all this rain and an energy sapping match only three days ago, so let's hope we can play this one at a bit less frantic pace. Ideally, get a couple in front and not be fighting uphill, which we seem to be doing too often. We really are a good side with classy...

Re: Cups and Lips. Home to Shrewbury Town, Tuesday Apr 16th 7-45.

I duplicated the match thread title then deleted both in error. My only point to make was for caution against the Shrews. It's all too easy to stand on a banana skin as Posh found out at Oxford, so keep the size tens on the pedal lads. As Auntie Doris once said " Whatever will be, will be; the futur...

We can't alter time or put it back, but human error is costing clubs dearly, us not the least. V.A.R should be mandatory at all League games, which will never happen due to cost, bu...

Re: Getting hairy: Portsmuff at home 13/4/24 3pm KO

Good job Santos is a big tough lad, because he was involved in a real physical scrap with the Pompey attacks. Sure hope he's carrying no knocks. Both he and Toal were stars yesterday. Might sound a bit treacherous, but I reckon Coleman would have saved the first goal. There, I've said it. We really ...

Re: Good game today. From a Pompey fan.

I’d have taken a point before the game and that’s what we got. I think we were lucky. Bolton certainly have a right to feel they should have gotten all three points today. Hopefully Bolton, Derby and us all get promoted this season in some form. Think that’s the fairest outcome on the basis of the ...

Re: Getting hairy: Portsmuff at home 13/4/24 3pm KO

I still believe we can do it. Today we played some lovely football and were unlucky not to get the points, but it was back in the season aways where we possibly failed: too many chances missed and too many soft goals conceded. Let's not write off the bonuses, rather a good season with some great pla...

Bit of bad from JonBod there. He's played strongly and well, but that was probably the third or fourth last-ditch let off they've had. We can do this COME ON YOU WHITES... :oyea: :oyea:

Re: Five Year EFL Deal: Death of the 3pm?

As ever, money, investors, betting and corporations rule the game. Football actually has little to do with any of it. Might as well just flip a coin . Results, not performance or entertainment are the priority....How many of the EFL committee actually own a season ticket to any club, or go to any fu...

Re: Getting hairy: Portsmuff at home 13/4/24 3pm KO

3-2 The Whites. A repeat of a game I went to at the Bok a few years back: We'd played well an were 3-1 up against Pompey with five minutes to go when chief assassin Andrew Cole popped up from nowhere and scored. The next five minutes seemed like an hour. We held out an won, but it was nerve-jangling...

North Westward Ho. We stay home and the Pompey sail up the map to visit the famous Unibol stadium. Here's how they are seeing a visit to the home of the Mighty Whites:

Having to win at Posh on the final day is a stomach-turning prospect tbh.

Re: Race to the tape: 2024's League One promotion campaign

Thanks DJb, as ever. Decent game spoiled by inefficient officials. Derby miss on 7 mins was a shocker , but Derby are deadly on the break. Not much in it right now. A goal either way could cause an uproar; let's hope it's a Wycombe one. Dry mouth time. All about the result. :|

The word "easy" shouldn't even be in our vocabulary. Hard is the only way forth. Carlisle can play like Brazil with nothing to lose. Beating Bolton is a big feather in caps. "Ride boldly ride, the Shade replied, "if you seek Eldorado"..

Re: The Nostradamus file....

Just a point that gives me the heebies is when our captain fantastic goes a-wandering too far up the pitch. No use denying that he hasn't lost the ball a few times, or that he isn't exactly Usain Bolt at foot racing back against speedy strikers. He's a rock in defence, but rocks don't move like pebb...
