footy_fans
cheers footy_fans .. both teams now updated
Chix
Can you believe it Nugent comes off the bench for Burnley and scores twice !!!
Chix
so, the nugget scored 2 for burnley - that doesnt help us at all! because of matches in hand I say we are currently FOUR points behind our rivals ... hull, birmingham and wolves. luckily hull are playing brum which means both cant get 3 points. wolves vs fulham will be a good match but fulham are a real good team now. we NEED to get SOMETHING ANYTHING from this game - i would take ONE point - i really would! because we could potentially be FIVE points behind after these fixtures are over and that is quite a lot after only SIX games ... sorry for caps but it needs to be emphasised! PUPPPU!
pompey--pessimist
chixy - the fact is not that he scored twice but BOTH were really well taken, confident looking goals!
pompey--pessimist
Theres a decent looking player on the box in the burnley mackems game called david nugent hope we can sign him come january. I'm sure he would come to us when theyre 20 pts ahead!
Super Bock 1898
Pessimist
I've not seen the goals yet just heard about them on the radio .. Typical innit even more so with Distin scoring in the week too !
Chix
Bock
I wonder if we could pull him back if he starts scoring too much.. But by the sound of it he aint never coming back!
Chix
1st goal - good decent cross - he was marked just inside near post - he jumped higher than a basketball player and bullet header into the top of the net. 2nd goal was waiting in the box - pass/cross into feet, turned so his back was to goal (2 men marking him) turned a little more and just hit a curling top of the net goal. i was very impressed. its just the way the cookie crumbles - hopefully someone can score a brace for us today and then we wont really care! =)
pompey--pessimist
Pess
That'll be good wouldn't it .. but who .. Freddy.. Smithy.. maybe even Webber from the bench !
Chix
3.00 - Kick-off
Come on you blues - Let's start our season.
Chix
10 mins
Villa looking strong.. Pompey looking sluggish at the back ... anybody else worried ?
Chix
yea... do i need to say more
pompeym@
M@
That's the thing innit I'm trying to be positive but just sitting hear waiting for the 'Villa score' comment
Chix
im watching the match on romanian eurosport (but listening to the quay)... id say were lacking a little at the mo but seem fairly controlled for now!
pompey--pessimist
yea mate, i've been positive all week but staying positive while watching this is proving to be hard. i like our away strip though looks awesome :D, and actually our defence looks a bit more solid than last week which it really eeded to be!
pompeym@
and why is prince playing on the left? he's a central mid, surely O'hara would have been better on the left?
pompeym@
arrrr PIQ again.....
pompeym@
Right I'm back in the room now .. my link went down.. but back up I'm showing 27 mins gone and still 0-0 .. Pompey working hard but Piq just got a bollocking from Hart for a lazy offside !
Chix
we missed ANOTHER header if ya missed it.... but on the whole we're looking alot better and its jut a matter of time until the villa fans turn on their own team >:)
pompeym@
M@
Cheer Matt.. yeah I think it's looking ok NEVER A PEN !!!!!!!!!!
Chix
On second look - yes it was !
Chix
thats fecking ridiculous we need to get rid of beldhadj, and i'm sorry mate he didn't get the ball it IS a penalty
pompeym@
***** !.. I thought we were doing ok (ish) up until that point.. wreckless by Belhadj
Chix
belhadj is just not a defender, simple as
pompeym@
M@
That's what we brought Finnan for innit .. The sooner he's fit the better .. Belhadj is never a defender in a million years !!
Chix
Do you reckon Piq looks disinterested .. ?
Chix
i thought finnan was for our other useless full back? we need the herminator mate lol
pompeym@
and yea he's starting too but in all fairness he ain't been given a decent ball yet apart from the header HE screwed up
pompeym@
True .. but I thought it a little last week too.. Playing as the '1' is no fun granted but if you don't get the service your job is to go pick it up form them.. good shot by O'Hara..
Chix
we have NO wide players. what was belhadj thinking!
pompey--pessimist
Why aint Jamo wearing Pink !
Chix
dunno piq chased the ball down after o'hara's shot quite nicely so i think he's alright
pompeym@
Pess
No wide men in 5-4-1 .. now that is worrying !
Chix
f***
race
M@
Let's hope so .. ***** 2-0 !
Chix
Its not looking good
race
He left Ben Haim for dead !
Chix
YAY WOOHOO PARTY TIME =)
pompey--pessimist
i'm not sure i wana watch the 2nd half.... all my optimism's just disappeared into thin air
pompeym@
Race
The back four well Belhadj and Ben Haim have cost us .. no debate and no excuses ! very poor !
Chix
have to go 4-4-2 now
race
but we desperatly need wilson, herman and finnan back!
pompeym@
Pess
Party ! can I come... Jelly and Ice Crem ?
Chix
im praying for a midweek call saying PAUL HART SACKED !!!
Football_Casual
would love to have ONE competitive game where we do NOT conceed ... we havnt had one yet including cups! i dont think we had much chance of winning, draw would have been good, av were the favourites but the thing is we are letting them win this EASY!
pompey--pessimist
be interesting to wee what Hart does .. there is absolutely no point sticking to a 451 we have nothing to defend .. must go 442 - Agree with Race
Chix
if Hart doesn't make any signifigant changes at half time even i will be calling for his head and i've defended him for the past weeks
pompeym@
put kanu on and mokoena off. Give kaboul arm band and kanu , piq and smith up front
Football_Casual
2 defensive errors again, The commentator on SportsMax said it all, defensively we make unneeded challenges and the first 30 mins effort was washed out the door
race
Race
Think you (or that commentator) are right .. Belhadj needn't have challenged.. and Ben Haim was so easily turned.. basic errors in my book
Chix
my party involves talking about the fa cup lol and players that can defend =) *im NOT taking drugs right now ... honest* lol. no seriously, the pessimist is back, his job is secure!!! can we turn this round? sure. will we? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
pompey--pessimist
Casual
Tend to agree but that doesn't give us anything stronger at the back and that's where we get caught out.. still nothing to lose eh ! .. ship or bust ??
Chix
Pess
I think you have a job for life atm !
Chix
Well as I said before we signed him, this was exactly what we can expect from Ben Haim, he is one of the most worthless defenders in Premier League history. I would take the back four from the Perrin era before putting Ben Haim out on the pitch. And we all know Belhadj's shortcomings too well.
pompeywa
ahhh
My link now showing the Arsenal game !!
Chix
No changes at HT!
footy_fans
I just want the season to end, i'd take the relegation now if we could just avoid the endless thrashings, and playing like we have no clue of what the white round thing is
Super Bock 1898
Well pessimist I pity you not taking drugs right now, I think I am going to have to start taking drugs in order to watch the games. Maybe I can get more interested in looking at the pitch patterns then watching the game. Because it is really depressing, my day (and it is 8 am here) is already ruined.
pompeywa
great save by james
race
And any manager that doesn't make changes when they are 2-0 down and continues to play a defensive formation should not be a premier league manager. I don't know who we could attract, but hopefully we could use some of this "new finance" to bring in someone new.
pompeywa
wa - i agree - how can you NOT make changes - we have NOTHING to lose!!!! this is the final straw for me - half the players dont give a shi.... GET THEM OFF HART!!
pompey--pessimist
RUUD GUILET WOULD TAKE OVER ANYONE APART FROM HART THIS IS EMBARRESING
Football_Casual
lol my link says its not avalible in my area and tbh i'm really not sure if i can be bothered to search for a new one...
pompeym@
does hart know he can swap 3 players in a match - they are called substitutions - its when someones injured or just playing carp and/or to erm.... "MIX THINGS UP" ... were too predictable at the moment. no attack means we are constantly under pressure from opposition attacks!
pompey--pessimist
My link gone completlely .. can't find another !
Chix
ok thats it, i give in defending Hart, he's made it a hard job at times but i stuck with it but i don't even know HOW i can defend not making ANY subs at half time when your 2-0 down.... it's just impossible
pompeym@
mokoena needs to go as well while we're getting rid of players..
pompeym@
Boateng .. good shot .. but hurt
Chix
Sounds like we are at least going for it .. need somebody to link the play tough.. Kanu ?
Chix
yea i was thinking that chix, but surely he must realise that a 4-5-1 is not gonna win us this game we need a standard 4-4-2 with wingers rather than the diamond we had last week which just sucked imo
pompeym@
for 90 seconds there we looked good
race
Been out, listening to snippets on radio 5, I'm starting to get angry with this situation now!...And the worst thing is I can't even think of an answer....
pentonpompey
Playing better but need a goal ..
Chix
Webber warming up
Chix
I think we are gonna score in a minute .. Belhadj. Brown, O'Hara are all shooting on site .. surely one must go in
Chix
Agbonlahor just pole axed janice !
Chix
You are not alone Chix me old mate. I am here writing away.
eastneydave
\Kanu and Webber coming on
Chix
Cheers Dave
Smith and Piq coming off !
Chix
That book arrived this morning .. only ordered it on Thursday night .. great condition and look really good .. Have you seen it ?
Chix
Hate this, I have no commentary, just a pic sent to me by my mate in the holt end gloating!
pentonpompey
Dave for Toast ?
Kanu 100 app for Pompey .. how many as sub .. how many has he played the full 90 mins.. want me to look it up ??
Chix
lots of shots , mostly straight at Brad. But we have looked better
race
Penton
That's not funny .. neither is the fact that we now hold the reocrd for the worse premiership start EVER
Chix
Assuming we don't score two in the next 12 mins
Chix
Hesky is DEAD !
Chix
Oh no .. he's walking again
Chix
Prepare for the Championship lads, we are dead ducks in this division. 1 goal in nearly 6 games and that in a flogging is pretty damn bad. Whatever will Chelsea and Man Utd do to us 6-0, 6-0. It will sound like a tennis score, but even that is better than acricket score !! Humbug. We could even be relegated before the transfer window opens again, thanks Sasha and you too Redknobb.
pompeygray
Hi ya PompeyGray .. I think you are probably right.. but I'm sure it's not mathematically possible to be relegated by Jan 01 ... There's still 48 points on offer .. We could win them all .hahahahahahahaha
Chix
This I think is the first time i've come out and said this, but at long last...........................................Hart has to go!...Now!...Just give us someone who at least will give us some hope!!!!
pentonpompey
i am so depressed at the moment and we all thought derby were bad that year we could be worse!!!
knocker
Well that is almost right Gray, we got 3 goals. I really cannot blame Jamie's dad anymore, I think all the blame goes on Sacha and Arcadi's shoulders. If they hadn't abandoned us then Redknapp would never have had a reason to leave.
pompeywa
Knocker
we are worse .. Derby got a point on the opening day remember.. against us !!
Chix
Chix - you still you'll be OK in the long term after letting all those players go?
ForeverUnited
Wa
Sasha spent too much and just run out of money ..
Chix
i just cant see us scoring goals and that is a real problem when we are conceding so many!!
knocker
ForeverUnited
I'm a Pompey fan mate - I'll laways be happy me .. I've supported my club in the 4th division and will do it again if necessary.. Still at least we've won a throphy that United haven't !
Chix
Knocker
You're right mate we don't have a striker !
Chix
is anything happening in the match?
knocker
Still.. at least we broke a record today.. No team has EVER lost the first six games in the Premiership ..
Chix
Knocker
It's over mate.. final whistle just goe.. better second half but still no real threat and llok a bit glass like at the nback .. O'Hara, Boateng and Kaboul were ok .. Belhadj gave away a needless penalty, Ben Haim was far too tight to Agbonlahor for the second.. other than that same old same old !
Chix
Well at least it is over!! Nuff said. As to Chix's question re Kanu. I know he has 21 goals.
eastneydave
Right I'm off for a beer and a curry .. See ya fellas !.. Everton next !!
Chix
Have to say the record speaks for itself. 0 and six Where do we go from here? Not many would of given us points from this game. Teams are finding it easy when we do the stupid mistakes that we make defensively. The second half we went forward but still can't hit the net with 8 chances. This is gonna be a long winter.
race
i have to say some good managers have been sacked for crimes far less than this, and if money is the problem i'll manage them for free!!
knocker
Hart needs to go fellas.
footy_fans
Chix - fair enough. I'm just a bit confused as to why all those quality players have been sold without any fight at all. I won't be surprised if David James left for Spurs too.
ForeverUnited
25 years since anyone lost their opening 6 games in the top flight and that was Leicester who survived, as for us don't hold your breath. Bring on another bad side next week so they can look good again.
pompeygray
A loss to Carlisle must see Hart gone...
footy_fans
Bloke on Sky, commenting on Nuge's goals for Burnley given that he didn't produce the goods for Pompey was that he needed to be in a "proper football town". Cobblers to that! Actually we're a football CITY thank you very much
hammersmithblue
Hear Hear hammersmithblue, burnley have one of the smallest populations, definately smaller than ours. Also pompey have the support from most of the Isle of Wight (where I'm from) so more than a football city! Everyone knew nuge would score today, lets see how he does from now!
