Good Luck or Good Riddance

Good Luck or Good Riddance

More to follow .. but it is commonly known that Steve Cotterill is at the Pompey Training Ground saying his goodbyes..

So where does this leave Pompey ahead of tomorrow .. Whitts and Stuart Gray in charge ?

Do you feel relived or angry ?

Is this a blessing in disguise or a nail in the coffin for our season.

kind of annoyed after sticking my neck out for the **** but pretty glad he's gone, it was getting really hard to stay positive with the performances on the pitch and his ludicrous statements in the press and lets face it he was probably gonna get sacked anyway

Must admit I feel that although he was on dodgy ground I thought he'd want to stay and complete the job he started... Bonfire Night now brings an added significance .. I wonder what reception he will get so soon after leaving... As for the new man to take the hot seat .. well I haven't got a clue...

How many more new chapters do we need though Chix? Isn't that 14 managers in as many years now? Hopefully CSI bring in someone who has experience at this level and we can finally get some long term managerial stability.

Yep 14 in 14 years Alty .. not as many as Chelsea but a lot more than ManU .. It'll be interesting to see how CSI react .. Somebody tweeted earlier that they expect CSI to advertise the vacant position on Facebook .. I'm assuming it was a joke !!...

Over the time of his tenure in the hot seat at FP SC has had good times and bad, last season a great run playing some good football. This season has not been so good, defensive and a tad boring style of football, one up front at home will never get my vote. There is not many games I can say I enjoyed so far. Pompey fans do like attacking football with the full use of a winger (Stone, Lua lua, Hilare to name but a few) so the North Stand has someone to cheer along. This has not happened for a while now. I will be always grateful for his work last season in very tough circumstances keeping Pompey up with a threadbare squad. Good luck to Steve on his travels, should be interesting what his reception will be like in a few weeks time when Forest visit the park.

Early gossip suggests Dave Jones is the person most would not object to (too much) .. Lots of ex-players.. Linvoy, Macca, Awfs, Blake, Prosi Whitts... being banded around.. Bottom line is I don't think anybody has a clue .. and given CSI's silence/closed doors approach to things I think we could all be guessing for a few weeks to come.. and still more than likely get it wrong..

it was only a matter of time anyway, cotterill was never going to turn it around, if you dont pick your best players, and continuely play players out of position you are always going to struggle, the fact CSI haven't put up much of a fight if any says it all really I for one am glad to see him go, the football we have played under him has been pretty dire to say the least. Whoever comes in and i think CSI will surprise us cant do any worse thats for sure...

Surprise us in which way Nobby .. as 'name' or a 'foreigner' or a 'named foreigner' ... One thing CSI have been clear on is that they see the team as being there immediate investment .. so a good manager must be considered important to them in that aim.

Chix not just another chapter think we are on volume 10 chapter 12 Not bothered he has gone, i think he is a limited lower league man manager, think he has gone to a similar club finances wise but will get paid more

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
