  1. I enjoyed today's game with both teams trying to win it. The fact that neither did was due to bad choices in and around the box. Palmer trying to put it on a plate for Fammy in the box when he had a clear chance to shoot himself was but one example. There were opportunities to get to the byline and cut the ball back for a player, especially Weimann, to come in on the angle but we're content to feed it to square once more. Both sides were also guilty of being shot shy wanting to walk it in the net. Massengo was MoM.
  2. The loss of BA is a major blow given how well he was playing but even now I don't see the squad being any worse than last season. If we play to our potential we can still beat anyone in this league. In LJ and the players I trust.
  3. Can't say I'm prone to crying over a football match. Perhaps you're more used to it every time you lose to Cardiff.
  4. Don't like Sunday football but at least Cardiff is not far. Barnsley though is another case of **** the away fans. What may have been 1,000 fans at Barnsley will now be 250 reducing greatly the atmosphere at the game. It's about time there was a rule about maximum distance of travel for rearranged fixtures, say 150 miles one way.
  5. It would be the wind up of all wind ups but I'm afraid the truth is that you are probably living up to your OTIB handle. We are just going to have to get on with it.
  6. Forget the stats and the pretty arrows, at Stoke young Semenyo looked like a fish out of water for most of the game. His one real chance, from a superb ball from Massengo, saw him snatch at horribly and blast over. I have no doubt that he will come good, but at present Fammy has to be above him.
  7. After allowing for away fans, our average home support last year was a little over 19,300 (based on figures reported in local press/over tannoy at AG). This was actually down slightly from the previous season. Unless you have an accurate figure of those through the turnstile at each game however the figures can be misleading. Home support can be skewed by the inclusion of ST holders regardless of whether they turn up, while away figures are heavily dependant on tickets allocated, time of game, distance to travel etc. As an indicator I much prefer the % of ground available and the % filled. But if we are going to make comparisons on published figures then its the increase in home support which tells me we're growing as a club and away figures are irrelevant.
  8. Teams should play to their strengths, not because something is fashionable. Even at Prem level, as Stones, Otamendi and Sokratis prove, you can't play out from the back with cart horses.
  9. We won which is the important thing, but seriously how does anyone rate above 6 today. We played geriatric walking football in the first half, and continued to labour against 10 men in the second. The only times we actually bust a gut to get behind their full backs resulted in our two goals. With a man advantage our midfield should have been committing their players more.
  10. I thought walking football was for the over 50s. We were awful but we won. Enough said.
  11. Don't see the shirts are relevant. Any club is free to prevent anyone entering their ground if they feel they present any threat to safety or security, not that they have to give a reason. As for John Westwood, if he was refused entry due to wearing a Pompey shirt, is the first time he was seen wearing one. All I've ever seen him wear are his tattoos, a gillet and a blue and white 'dicky mint' hat.
  12. Clearly no Tomori, Mount and Wilson plus the management skills of Lampard = no home wins.
  13. Scott's filming as replacement for Sean Bean in Sharpe on the Wing
  14. Shouldn't the title be 'Watford appoint old manager', or previous if you like.
