MOTM v Swindon

The votes had been cast; these numbers toted up with it decided among the Vital Pompey fraternity that Mikkel Andersen was the man of the match against Swindon.

Had it not been for a collection of saves by the on loan Reading man we could quite easily have been 4-0 down at the break - as it was this collection of to drawer saves, and some fortunate, meant it was only 1-0 but to be brutally honestly it was his mistake that did allow Swindon to have this lead...

If I am totally honest I am not convinced by Andersen at the moment but lets face it we are very much in a beggars cannot be choosers position!

That said, and even if that is the case, his distribution is poor and whilst he did make a string of good saves some of these saves came about due to his own making, for example an inability to come for crosses that he probably should have and if he had there would not have been any danger.

All of this said, goals win games and saves can also help this, on this occasion it was not the case but whatever brought about these saves he made them and on that basis probably did deserve this award.

A mention must go to Lubomir Michalik though.

I thought he came in and had a really good debut in defence, seemingly a real 'old skool' no nonsense defender who is also, from the looks of it, going to be an attacking threat if we can get the corners right!

Can't argue with the result - none of the rest were up to much- which is why they are available for month to month contracts u would think.

A no brainer this one - he made a seasons worth of saves in 45 minutes!

I must be the only one that thought our centre backs were absolutely terrible. I don't think schoolboys would get the wrong side of forwards and get turned as much as these two did. I know we can't expect much quality with our off field problems but I do expect to see players that can do basic footballing skills.

Did you see previous incarnations of our central defensive pairing, SB?

i could not believe the amount of times swindon were easily spinning off and turning the defenders - most alarmingly turning inside with them shown that way, so get where you are coming from SB. think the main culprit was gypo?
