Re: I wish I'd never left Bolton...v Blackpool H. 8-0 clock 7-10-19.

We're still playing like a team getting used to a new system, which is basically because that's what we are. I think if we're playing it out from the back we need to get it forward quicker because we're letting them set and finding it difficult to create space or drag them out of their shape. Howeve...

I got ten but I'm claiming an extra two because I mispelt their names.

Re: I wish I'd never left Bolton...v Blackpool H. 8-0 clock 7-10-19.

Just want to see a good game, good performance and spirit - a re-run of the Sunderland game would be great. Right now results are secondary to building a good feeling up around the place. Really? I reckon a few result wins will be the key to a good feeling and definitely not glorious losses. Lost s...

A fairly sobering result on the face of it. Hopefully it's one of those where the performance deserved better.

A big vote of confidence in Sonny Graham from Hill tonight. He's one who has a real chance of making it.

Re: No Jackett Required - Portsmouth (A), 3:00pm, 28 September

He says a lot of good things there. The standards and expectations he's placing on the young players I think will only stand them in good stead. I suspect previous managers have thought much the same thing privately, but perhaps decided to give up on promoting youth rather than focus their efforts o...

Re: No Jackett Required - Portsmouth (A), 3:00pm, 28 September

" Pompey's fans getting a little bit anxious. Certainly not the walkover I think they were expecting." B.N. I've just read that you could get odds of 12/1 for us to win today. I'm not ordinarily a betting man but I'd have risked a fiver had I known earlier. Do bookies think we're still getting span...

By the sounds of it, we appear to be playing alright. I get the impression whoever scores first will win it.

Re: Rags to, well, rags....

There've been far too few posts in this thread recently.

After today's calamity, Ole's record now stands at P19, W5, D4, L10. And one of those wins was against FC Astana on Thursday night.

That's some going.

Also, Bridcutt was outstanding I thought. Proper Rolls Royce of a player, I'm amazed we have him.

He's similar to Olkowski in that it feels as if something must've gone wrong somewhere for him to have ended up here.

Re: Jack fell down and Hill came tumbling after. Sunderland @ Home. 21/09/2019 3pm

I personally disagree with giving Zouma a free pass on this one. Me and my mate said when Zouma came on that he's got a mistake in him. He needs to sort that stuff out and be more consistent. Apparently, he was error-strewn for the U23s as well. I've also read that Hill blasted him for not being re...

Re: Jack fell down and Hill came tumbling after. Sunderland @ Home. 21/09/2019 3pm

Although I will add he was very unlucky and shouldn't be criticised in any way for that. Just seen Hill's comments. Gone from happy-clappy 'the score doesn't matter' to publicly slagging off a young player for a debatable mistake. Great that he's got them playing but I really need to avoid listenin...

Re: Jack fell down and Hill came tumbling after. Sunderland @ Home. 21/09/2019 3pm

I enjoyed it yesterday. It's nice to watch us play out from the back now we have players good enough to do it, and the football on show was some of the best we've produced for a long time. As the second half wore on though, and our energy levels began to drop, we had no one of any real quality to b...

Re: Jack fell down and Hill came tumbling after. Sunderland @ Home. 21/09/2019 3pm

Did anybody spot a bit of aggro between Zouma and (I think) Emmanuel at the final whistle? Zouma looked gutted at FT, to be fair. Hope he bounces back, because he's shown an awful lot of promise thus far I noticed some squaring up between Zouma and one of theirs, but not between Zouma and Emmanuel....

Re: Grabbing life by the bullocks. Oxford (H) 17.9.19 KO 8pm

Our first proper performance in what feels like an age. Obviously, we still have a very long way to go and it won't all be plain sailing but, if nothing else, it's a sign that the club's rebuilding process is finally starting to begin. It feels good to be competitive again.

I thought that his (Hill's) post match interview was very strange - a bit Eric Cantona.

Nah, it's just his style.
