  1. With no coaching or direction - are you saying we forgive because they are tired? Last time I looked we had that chap with masses of Premier League defensive experience at Watford sitting on the bench including today?
  2. One of the differences that constantly gnaws away at me, is every other team with massive injury problems tends to play a consistent formation and seems to adapt their player selection to fit their best attributes in that system. Whereas City seem to approach the selection like FIFA, where you have to have your best (and fit) players all on the pitch at the same time. This is why we typically conceded first and end up with Fam, Wells and Mr Coldplay come the end of the game. We are doing this at the expense of a logical formation - by this time in a game, we have removed the midfiel
  3. There was a moment late on when Tommy Rowe was significantly ahead of Nakki Wells in the Norwich final third and I lost the will to watch. People slate NW but really, what were Holden's tactics if NW is dropping back to cover TR (who had no-one ahead of him) - surely this can't be his vision or strategy?
  4. Come on now... You must have been very distracted not to enjoy our cup run in 17/18?
  5. They’ve hardy set the world alight so far! We need stability. We have just won well for the first time in ages. IMO we need to stick with a winning team, probably flex the tactics a little and create stability, nearly all top teams do this. We cannot keep searching for our best starting 11 in February.
  6. I agree was really surprised - but then I assume Portsmouth were tiring by then and also pushing up so much more room. I remember when we played Webster in midfield against West Brom and he looked incredible, then in the next match just ordinary. I think it's much harder to move into midfield from defence and be consistent in the Championship.
  7. Bit Harsh on Taylor Moore who made two great interceptions! But agree he won all the duels you would expect considering he is Premier League and Portsmouth are League one. Agree he looks good. A back 3 with him, Kalas and Baker could be awesome and perhaps allow Dean to play his favourite formation. Hopefully with a firing KP (we can all dream)
  8. I last saw him away at Ipswich and he was terrible. Today he was OK, I would like to see him try to beat players - hopefully he has pace, he certainly has strength. I think he tried to do this early on and gave the ball away, I don't recall him trying again. He clearly needs confidence - whether we have time to let him find it in a City shirt is another matter.
  9. Even though commentator was constantly mis-pronouncing 3 of our players?
  10. We would have paid a significant sum to terminate the contract!
  11. Brunt wasn’t a replacement for Korey who remember had not maintained consistent fitness for 2 seasons.
  12. Appreciate off topic but is there any substance to this comment above or just your opinion?
  13. 18 goals last season shows he can do it and we were right to spend a fairly low fee on the 4th most prolific scorer - look how much the 3 ahead of him cost!!
  14. He's not starting in League 1 - why would he be what we need right now?
  15. But the start of our poor run was arguable Barnsley - he didn't have anything like the injury problems then and we were still poor. Of course injuries are a massive problem but he is not using the resources he has well at all.
