Anyone expecting a 'cavalier approach' at Wigan on Sunday is going to be disappointed by the sounds of things as Paul Hart feels we should 'approach the Wigan game in the way we have approached others - to get a result and not get beat.'
That statement in itself seems more than fair enough, should you not approach every game to get a result?
That is a given, although it does seem that we will drop the 4-4-3, which did not work so I do not mind that, but not for the 4-4-2 we will most likely go back to the 'tried and tested' 4-5-1 as he also said 'I think they deserved to be let off the leash a bit against Sunderland.'
Do the away following, and some of these only follow Pompey away these days, not deserve to see the players 'let off the leash' again on Sunday?
Our season was badly fizzling out on Monday night and it was not until we were 'let off the leash' that it looked like improving, although at the same time it must be said that Sunderland were pretty poor so lets not get carried away by that...
It is the final game of the season, we are going to face a side that have not won in 7 games I think, with them beaten in their last 3 - lets go with a positive mindset, go with a 4-4-2 or even give some players a game that have not got much of a look-in.
I am going to the game, it will take us hours to get there and hours to go back but to be honest I would rather see us lose and have a bloody good go, or give some 'fringe players' or 'kids' - who could very well be regular 1st team players next season! - a go than go with the previous same old same old.
A win and we can finish no lower than 13th, if Bolton do not win we could finish 12th, extra money for the coffers - it is all very well saying that 4-5-1 can win us the game, and it could depending on who we use, but a 4-4-2 set-up, with the personnel we have, is more likely to do this for us for me.
We are likely to be low down on the 'order of merit' for the final match of the day this season, at least we could well be putting on the kind of show to justify being one of the last, if not the last, games to be shown on Sunday - 0-0 anyone! It will probably be a cracker now!
Jeez, and I thought this season was a long one, but if things pan out as they could its going to be an even longer season next time round...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
