4-4-2, belhadj down the left, kranjcar down the right, pamerot at left back... no complaints there.
pompeycarpet
with the ability to easily switch to a 3-5-2, which it 'might' be anyway?
pompeyrug
could it be 5-3-2 with krankie behind the front two
knocker
think it could well be mate - not been listening to the quay yet so dont know what they think...
pompeyrug
Tony Adams likes his "back 4" and was very oposed to harry using 3-5-2... and 5-3-2 just doesnt work... so I doubt/hope it's neither of those - although the option is always there
pompeycarpet
quay seem to think it is 442 with belhadj and krankie on the wings
knocker
it seems most likely. Many people have commented belhadj would be better as a left winger, and that kranjcar could solve the right hand side problems, and that traore hasn't been at his best recently...
pompeycarpet
i think there could be goals this afternoon for pompey of course
knocker
let's hope so! as tony has said, we have the ability to destroy teams...
pompeycarpet
Exterminate.. Exterminate... Come on you blues !
Chix
come on pompey, lets do 'em!
pompeyrug
Sunderland are going to come out flying this afternoon given last weeks result so we need to ebb the flow early on an absorb their pressure .. Once the game has settled down we can then play our game..
Chix
sounds like a quick start by us...
pompeycarpet
yep, impressive start - lets keep it going... please!
pompeyrug
oh....
pompeycarpet
So much for absorbing the pressure ............
Chix
jesus christ...
pompeyrug
"looping ball to crouch, on his chest in the penalty area..." [connection lost]...?
pompeycarpet
he didnt score - i had the same thing!
pompeyrug
we don't seem to be playing badley though - quick tempo - it's just sol campbel being slow...
pompeycarpet
where can i find such game, my stream just went off line
harrissman
Me too I'm still down...
Chix
god dam it
harrissman
radio on the quay (107.4/online/pompeytv) my video streaming hasn't connected yet though.
pompeycarpet
sounds like we were unlucky there...
pompeycarpet
mate I am in Thailand
harrissman
in a hospital just finished acl surgery yesterday, all i want to see is this god damn game
harrissman
1-0 sunderland cisse put through james legs
stfc ballboy
Quay is back up --- Sunderland have just hit the post .. Richardson..
Chix
pompey heads down already?!?
pompeycarpet
We are getting mullered and team are showing as if heads down ..
Chix
we started so well too!
pompeycarpet
not good, not good at all... maybe some of the players arent as behind adams as they say they are? the last thing we need is heads dropping.
pompeyrug
Oh we have a corner...
Chix
we need something to raise our morale soon...
pompeycarpet
we are only losing because pamarot is playing he too slow and in my opinion to weak. We need traore playin on left mid with belhaji on left back.
stfc ballboy
we went 1-0 down when we beat them 4-1 didnt we?
pompeyrug
why don't we make corners count
pompeyyong
defensively pamarot is a better defender tho than belhadj isnt he...
pompeyrug
better positioning... yes
pompeycarpet
yh i agree with u there pamarot is better defender but i dont know i just not struck with him belhadji gets forward pamarot dont
stfc ballboy
away from home tho you cannot afford to be leaving yourself exposed can you and belhadj would 'in theory' leave us more exposed...
pompeyrug
http://www.justin.tv/uaelive - pompey game but bit blurry
stfc ballboy
good shout that man
harrissman
glad kranjcar is on the right as that is his natural foot.defoe aint even touched ball yet
stfc ballboy
im watchin game on this website and we are poor we get ball panick and sunderland pick it up straight away
stfc ballboy
is this performance showing us that the squad is divided...
pompeyrug
this is the first game i am going to miss this season.....what's happening
harrissman
cisse nearly scored great save james. glad i havent gone we look non league
stfc ballboy
cone on pompey! lets get level by the break.
pompeyrug
harrissman watch dis :http://www.global3sms.com/ that the game
stfc ballboy
What is going on? Belief has left us
paultsmouth
http://www.justin.tv/mstvthree better quality just found
harrissman
Just come in from the garden - gave up 'cos of the weather. Sounds like I'm better off where I was
UKTony
Goo dto have you back with us Harrisman..
Chix
Starting to pick up now.. (a little) if we can a goal back before half time it'll make all the difference.. But we need to control the middle a little more and not let Richardson run the show
Chix
fellas, i know the links to watch these games are appreciated but we CANNOT keep posting them - its not allowed on the vital football network and has caused problems before...
pompeyrug
campbell over head kick lol not enough power though belhadji is getten reallly involved
stfc ballboy
richardson is a decent footballer isnt he, but when he is running the show from midfield you know you are in trouble - as he shouldnt be able to do that.
pompeyrug
what is belhadj doing on the right
harrissman
What are we up to? No kind of danger at all.
eastneydave
thanks chix, how you doing?
harrissman
cisse comming off? sounds good...
pompeycarpet
5 mins behind the play unfortunately
harrissman
nice run by johnson
harrissman
get krunchie on the right for gods sake
harrissman
Good Mate thanks but could do with the blues picking up a little
Chix
tell me about it, as it is there is no coverage over here of the milan game
harrissman
Am getting migraine from watching crappy quality coverage and the stream I have has a load of dross in a verbal forum fight between Mackems and Magpies which is also giving me a headache. Phil Thompson is covering us on Gillette soc saturday, unfortunately. Come on Nadir! Get yourself a goal, son.
hammersmithblue
You're joking .. I bet you're gutted .. Hiya HSB... alright?.. apart from the scoreline and the pictures of course !
Chix
Half time.. fag !
Chix
am indeed, plus it's on at 3.00 in the morning here as well
harrissman
still watching first half lol
harrissman
i dont even smoke and i might have a half time fag! an important 15 minutes coming up for adams now - if the players are fully behind him it is important that they take in what he says and show they want to get something from this game... at the moment tho we do not look at all like getting anything!
pompeyrug
whitehead is injured :) cisse is immense today he is winning every header most shots on goal.COME ON POMPEY
stfc ballboy
Not looking too good so far in this half. Have we had a shot on target yet?
sneakay
any chance of getting back into it?
pompeycarpet
right if I wasn't in hospital i get all premiership games live over here. Is there any away games that you need covering in the next few weeks rug.....Wolfsburg will be too late though
harrissman
playing people in the right positions would help tbf, our strength this season so far has been down the left, and our strongest players down that side are A: on the bench, and B: playing down the right, doesn't really make sense does it
harrissman
if we lose then thats because we dont have hardly any coaches on the bench lol. we need to win this because otherwise we could be fightin relegation soon.We need to play better
stfc ballboy
sod it bring on Kaboul, play 3 at the back johnson on the right belhadg on the left, diarra, davis in the middle and stick Krunchie floating between little and large. lets go for it
harrissman
harrissman, you can do a report for west ham next saturday if you wanted? would that be ok?
pompeyrug
I think Rug has it spot on Carps... Win the second half even by one-nil and we will be ok .. A draw is an Ok result considering everything.. and the fact that we'd have come back from behind is a positive we can build on.. Fingers crossed eh !
Chix
can we get back into the game? 'on paper' we have the players, as it currently stands i cannot see how we are going to... we need a massive 2nd half!
pompeyrug
harrissman maybe you should be tony adams right hand man .3-5-2 will do second half kaboul i have been impressed when he has played.PLAY UP POMPEY
stfc ballboy
it would be my pleasure rug
harrissman
diouf is on
stfc ballboy
STFC...... too much football manager
harrissman
anybody got any thoughts on tony's coaching staff, and the buyout
harrissman
cheers harrissman, drop me an email during the week.
pompeyrug
Get in .. Hel-Badge
Chix
will do, i'm off work all week so won't be a problem
harrissman
come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pompeyrug
1-1 belhadji yessssssssssssssssssss
stfc ballboy
YES!!!!! Belhadj is a DUDE!!!!
hammersmithblue
buyout - right i dont think it will be a buyout more like a minority - 49% minority - share...
pompeyrug
I can't wait to see that .. That's more like it Pompey .. now take them apart .. WE ARE better than them.,, Lets prove it..
Chix
who called that earlier. well done, still 5 minutes behind....damn
harrissman
right, just re-connected... have I missed anything?
pompeycarpet
belhadji woah belhadji woah he comes from algeria he plays for portsmouth here
stfc ballboy
and defoe almost scored as well - play up pompey!
pompeyrug
Defoe.. has woken up come on JD .. You need a goal too..
Chix
sounds like how we started the first half?
pompeycarpet
wot a goal
stfc ballboy
missed the goal as well, my internet keeps screwing up
harrissman
well - so far - it looks like the 15 mins that adams has was a big one and we have got the response. we can do these!
pompeyrug
we need more pace up front, we really need to give young sarhar a run out soon
harrissman
sahar looks as tho he will never get a chance with us doesnt he?
pompeyrug
wow, is defoe not quick enough? utaka must be going to come on for kranjcar soon - and maybe kanu for crouch (as kanu destroyed sunderland last season)
pompeycarpet
Why didn't I put a tenner on the Bellster getting one? D'Oh! Never mind.
hammersmithblue
i know, which was a complete waste of an essential loan, does he go back in January?
harrissman
Sahar not even the bench though Harris.. If we need speed we have Kanu
Chix
phew
pompeycarpet
leave things as they are for the time being i saw - cant see what kanu can offer us that we dont already have, if anything we lose something if he comes on... 'if' we went 2-1 up maybe so.
pompeyrug
Phew.. offside.. Cisse !
Chix
phew indeed carpet!
pompeyrug
yh sahar goes in january shame he looked gd in pre season nad has a gd future
stfc ballboy
Yeah Jan he goes back to Chelsea.. neither side have benefoted from that loan have they..
Chix
lmfao
harrissman
rug - kanu will calm things down. we don't want all this "end to end" stuff - we want them to be "in awe" of us, we want them to play at OUR pace - and that is something kanu can do very well.
pompeycarpet
I think he may get a chance - but he has only just recovered from the injury he got on international duty.
pompeycarpet
*I meant sahar will get a cvhance at some point
pompeycarpet
i hope so carpet, he is a great talent
harrissman
here comes your man carpet...
pompeyrug
kanu for crouch... I told you so :-)
pompeycarpet
good shout
harrissman
links down, what's happening??
harrissman
steve bennet seems to be doing a good job refereeing too
pompeycarpet
end to end stuff isnt it...
pompeyrug
too end to end for my liking...
pompeycarpet
utaka coming on i think - for niko?
pompeyrug
oh, and here comes the second sub I told you would happen :-)
pompeycarpet
:-((
harrissman
you called it carps!
pompeyrug
utaka could do very well though - he will excel in this end-to-end football - if he can be bothered.
pompeycarpet
if he does like he did at anfield, and to be fair in the pool that was fratton the other week against wigan, then utaka could do something here!
pompeyrug
Last 15 let's not throw away a point in pursuit of three... Attack by all means but not at all costs.. ***** Mark Mudie just said what I typed !
Chix
as it's bonfire time, can't someone shove a rocket up Utaka's jacksey
hammersmithblue
i want the 3pts, but dont want us caught with another sucker punch like we have done in recent weeks - 1 is much better than none!
pompeyrug
The third sub will probably be traore for belhadj - however that will depend on whether we score/don't score/how the game is going. it could equally be hughes coming on, or even kaboul...
pompeycarpet
I think Utaka has said he owes us a performance !!.. once or twice !
Chix
bring on traore for pamarot and lets go for it
harrissman
Went for it last week and look what happened. I'd be content with a point if it's still 1-1 at 80 mins
UKTony
nonono - the game's there for the taking, sure - but I wouldn't risk opening us more than we are...
pompeycarpet
Come on Pompey .. Keep it tight ! - CONCENTRATE
Chix
was that cisse off? I wasn't listening?
pompeycarpet
be ready for an opening, but lets shut up shop somewhat now a point would be a big big point today!
pompeyrug
Yep I agree Tony .. A point will not dent confidence !.. a loss in the last ten will be awful and have a really bad affect ..
Chix
me too, but hey
harrissman
how long left
harrissman
about 8minutes plus injury time.
pompeyrug
Why is Kanu still at the club.. ? I honesty thought we'd seen the last of him especailly when Harry went....
Chix
ooh chix, you and your Kanu eh
harrissman
what a ***** cross by utaka
harrissman
utaka sounds like he is playing quite well now... kanu instils confidence in our players, and awe in the opposition... as well as being magical...
pompeycarpet
About 5 + about 3 stoppages !
Chix
great timing for that post, just after utaka does a poor cross - however he's still playing well in general...
pompeycarpet
KEEP IT TIGHT POMPEY
Chix
ahh defoe...
pompeyrug
what an oportunity... THAT is why kanu is playing for us...
pompeycarpet
87 on the clock
Chix
we'd better not loose this...
pompeycarpet
One touch for 60k a week .. Bargain Carps !
Chix
90 minutes are up ... PUT IT IN THE SEA .... A point will do
Chix
agree chixy, for what we oay kanu we need more back from him...
pompeyrug
Goal
Chix
it won us the FA cup,... I'm not going to complain...
pompeycarpet
No Penalty !!
Chix
peanalty
pompeycarpet
penalty!!!
pompeyrug
Penalty!!
UKTony

pompeycarpet

Chix

pompeyrug
Hughes on - smart move apart from the obvious timewasting
UKTony
Time drags......get that whistle going, son.
hammersmithblue
my stiches won't take this....come on pompey
harrissman
HAR HAR HAR!
hammersmithblue
Defoe Defoe his names Jermain Defoe When he gets the ball he scores a goal Jermain Jermain Defoe .... Play up Pompey !! 2-1 Game over
Chix
Yesssssss YAY YAY
UKTony
"remember remeber the 8th of november" - I'm sure Tony Adams won't forget it!
pompeycarpet
Beer time
UKTony
I'm nearly in bl00dY tears !
Chix
yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssss!
pompeyrug
well done Tony, and congrats on your first win. Now get Bergkamp and some decent coaches in and concentrat on the Milan game
harrissman
Luck has come back to us, as that WAS outside the box! PUP!
sneakay
Tony I need something a lot lot stronger ...
Chix
Was it Sneaks ?
Chix
milan? getting a bit ahead of yourself there Harrisman... it's west ham next...
pompeycarpet
we needed those three points. gives us a little cushion, looking forward to west ham now, they imploded today
harrissman
I know, but need at least 1 coach in before the milan game
harrissman
And we still have Hull to deflate before UEFA
hammersmithblue
Bring em all on HSB !!
Chix
8th November my daughter Amy's birthday and she says thanks to all the Toast fans for their best wishes and to Tony for the three points.
eastneydave
All I got for my birthday was Harry sodding off to Spuds and that poxy point v Fulham. Happy birthday, Amy, and you might even get So'ton losing at home if you are really lucky....
hammersmithblue
They did too!!
eastneydave
Great result, as I predicted. Out with family in Bournemouth. Swithched the car radio on, Radio SDolent, very dour, 1 down, should be 3, Pompey hanging on then goal, Belutiful scores. All this in 2 minutes of listening. Then got a mobile call from my about the winner. Ahhhhh a happy Pompey weekend.
storagematt
And nice to see you cheery again Matt
