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 spanked 5-0 every week?

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

Anyone know if Murphy has slotted right in and playing well or is it a case of he's looking pretty rusty?

It's certainly a curious thing. I expected us to be underdogs before kick-off, and we might well still lose, but no way should we have been such long odds.

Anyway, I helped myself to a fiver at 14/1.

Iles said " Was a bit worried as Zouma tracked Marquis stride for stride. Thought he was going to make a challenge and give away a penalty." I'm betting they've been told to run at Zouma around the box looking for just that. ...

Nothing penalty, hits the post.

Emmanualle with a nothing clearance which put the defence under pressure, think it was Hobbs who tripped the player.

Missed anyway.

Penalty seems to have woken Portsmouth up however they are still smashing crosses over the bar.

Zouma is having a better game, not to tempt fate.

Portsmouth really are on top at the minute.

Too much long ball by Bolton. No fluidity of play.

Absolute shit defending and goal keeping.
Poor positioning by both RB and keeper.

Looping header to the back post.

1-0 Portsmouth.

Going to get spanked now. Luke Murphy on for Emmanuelle.

Politic replaced Verlinden in that spell.

Buckley has moved over to the Left, Politic on the right.

Passing has been poor today by Bolton.

Jason Lowe has had a poor game today. Really poor. Possession given away so often.

Getting put under pressure on the counter attack far too often.

Commentators trying to credit Zouma with giving the penalty away.

Can someone teach Luke Murphy how to pass forward. Prick.

Zouma with a break from the back with a shot on goal, hits the scoreboard.

Really need to improve as this has been too far off acceptable.

Bridcutt has been poor. Distibution has been poor. I don't think we've had 1 shot on target this half.

Portsmouth have been far superior this half, our defence has been disjointed, midfield has been missing and I think D Murphy has now tired.
