Harry Admits "Poor" Performance

Harry Admits "Poor" Performance

Harry Redknapp for the first time since I can remember decided against defending his team, after the embarrassing performance against Wigan yesterday.

Harry said;

'It was poor - there's no getting away from that. Wigan were hungrier than us. They competed and wanted it more.

'They came out at us quickly and we never matched their work rate. I was as positive as possible but we never looked like socring. I'm not happy at all.'


Portsmouth dropped out of the top six for the first time this season and many fans are starting to become frustrated. Look out for several articles on "Vital Pompey" over the coming days regarding whether Pompey fans are right to be annoyed?

Doesn't take a genius to realise and admit we are crap at the moment

We were crap at Newcastle & at home to Charlton. Pretty average at home to Watford, Sheff Utd Spurs & Boro. Ordinary at Sheff Utd. January was a good time to go up another notch, freshen things up.

We just have not got what it takes up front. The Board and the Management let us down with the sale of Yakubu, sadly the reinstated management and the new administration at the Club have done absolutely nothing to recitfy the problem or search for a decent replacement for the Yak. Old crublies like Kanu and Cole just cannot take the pace of 90 minutes or a full season.

To be fair I don't think its from the lack of trying that we've not replaced Yak, we've been after almost everyone who is anyone, just signing them has proved the problem... Cole in my opinion wasn't brought to be a 90 minute player no matter what he thinks, was brought to come on from the bench... Kanu has had a good season, did many people honestly think he'd score as many as he has? He's contributed other than goals too... We are poor at them moment there is no denying this but City kick started things last season, lets hope it happens again this weekend... Do we have a right to be annoyed though? We're fans we have whatever right we want be honestly I guess but top half of the table (albeit slipping away somewhat now) and the season we've had on the whole can we really be that annoyed yet... If our season disolves into complete decay then maybe we do but when all is said and done we have to remember we were fighting relegation this time last season, this time in every Premiership season in the past really...

Mathematically we are not yet safe. What does give me some concern is if we can't beat the bottom lot what chance have we against the rest. I won't rest easy until we are on 43 pts. Remember West Ham went down once on 42.

You're having a laugh mate, you can't really be thinking about relegation can you? Maybe you've already accepted Europe won't happen but relegation... No one is beyond or above going down but come on lets be serious one of the bottom three would have to make up almost 20 points on us in 12 games, not that likely...

I guess the reality is we will finish about half way. It doesn't look likely that any of the bottom 3 will accumulate more than about 35pts which has us just about safe already. There will be a glut of points from those clubs as they become increasingly more desparate when scrapping for results - much like we were last term. But one of them possibly West Ham could beat both in the next couple of games and close that gap somewhat. Should this happen and we remain empty handed in the same period, I will be getting just a little nervous. I do not want to see us stuck on 38 pts. Remember it was what we finished with last season and we all know how close that was.

With regard to relegation, how many thought Birmingham would not have gone down? How many thought they would easily survive? Look what happened, at one stage they were nine points clear of the relegation zone and the next thing they knew they were playing fizzy pop football. Never underestimate the fight within a club to stay up, we of all people should know that more than anyone by now. We are quite clearly still very able to be relegated and if that were to happen then I sincerely would not want to be HR or Sasha, certainly not at Fratotn Park on the day it happens. NO, it's highly unlikely but it is not impossible - just like it was not impossible for us to avoid it last season.

Nine points clear of relegation and almost twenty are quite a difference... Not impossible but not even likely for me...
