'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Minority rules...

'Pompey would beat Hull at the weekend', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I did agree with to be honest...

I, like of the people, did go into the game against Hull under the impression that Pompey would win that game. Quite foolishly - and in hindsight why? - I even predicted a 4-2 win! Which, given the stats surrounding both clubs was never that likely in all honesty and all signs did actually point to a 0-0 draw, as we got!

It was a poor game, a poor game of few clear cut chances - the best of which probably did fall to us, but as usually the finishing touch was not quite there, although to be fair I think the keeper perhaps deserves a little credit for a couple of decent saves too.

'If' Hull avoid relegation this season I must admit I would be surprised, that said on our showing - coupled with our points from games ratio at the moment - then I suspect few would be surprised if we joined them...

Onwards and upwards though!

    To be honest we were right to be voting with those beliefs. Hull are the worst team I have watched this season. How many times this season has the opposing keeper made class saves against us. Some say a point away is a good point but I still feel we lost 2.

    fully agree, we were right to be so confident we could win based on our perfromances over the past half a dozen games or so - hull are a poor side, on the weekends evidence tho we are not much better, altho i still feel we made ourselves looked 'bad' by the way we set out for the game - certainly agree, at this point in time this is 2pts lost but i 'could' prove a vital point in the end? i am trying to convince myself now lol!

    said it before and I'll say it again.... dont look at the results in august/ september and poss even half of october, look at the results in late oct, nov and Dec.... we've another 9 games to go until mid season... 27 possible points... we've got 4. As I said before if we've got 15 of those by then and Jan... we'll be safe. Let's judge PH by end of Nov... if it aint looking like we'll manage it, let Grant take over.

    I was more disappointed at our display than the result. I'll follow jim's advice.

    Hull are indeed a poor side and if we can't get 3 points from them we can't expect to stay up. It was a poor match, Sky sports said it wasn't worthy of the premier league. 2 points lost. 2 very valuable very needed points lost. We can't just be happy to sit at the bottom of the league with 4 points from 10 games, surely?
