Nightmare continues

Referee:

After conceding six at Eastlands, Pompey capitulated once more at home, letting Chelsea romp into the 4th round of the Carling cup.
Once again Pompey's defensive unit had a nightmare, so much so I swear Freddie Kruger was calling the offsides.
Glen Johnson has gone from England Full-back to an absolute arse in one short week, his defending for Maloudas goal was schoolboy at best, totally ignorant at worst. Lampard opened the scoring with his customary goal against Uncle Harry, Harry must have been vile to him as a child as he walked in another straight after the break after James played droppsies once more.
Kalou wrapped things up after Distin gave possesion away cheaply, and Pompey had their second hiding in 4 days.

Tottenham await Pompey this Sunday, they dispatched Newcastle tonight and must fancy their chances of doing the same to Pompey, but we can't keep this up surely?

Lack of effort, lack of Ideas. No excuse for that. Best buck up and at least try for next weeks pay cheque.

posted at the same time... disappointing, but there you go no excuses, frustrating for those that paid the money but sunday will show how 'bad' things really are, and they arent as bad as 10 goals in 2 games suggest...

A game worth forgetting. And fortunately, everyone *will* forget it, because of another game tonight. Wish I'd been down at Withdean to watch City get beat :D

Just got back home ... After that display I'm worried for the confidence of some of our 'bigger' players Distin and Johnson looked all over the place Jamos England place must surely now be in serious doubt. Utaka.ha.ha.ha if he comes out with another 'I'll prove myself quote' I reckon I'll shove it down his throat... 6 million more like 6 francs. Kaboul runs around like littel Bo Peep. Crouchy tried to do a job but got little service from a poor midfield and although Pamarot, Hughsie and Arnie ran around and chased the ball a lot it was clear to see that they are no more than 'bare bones' players at best especialy against the better opposition.. Belhadj left his leg trailing inviting the penalty and although it should never have been given name me one pro who wouldn't take advantage of his naievity.. Herman tries but his well past his best. Other than that I think we did alright !!.. Spurs on Sunday.. I'll settle for a 0-0 right now.. we must get some confidence back in the back four and I'll think we'll see 442 for the rest of the season ... changing formations fpor a few games brought us instant success but the players arent sure who is doing what job anymore.. it's unsettled us

Well I'm glad I know bugger all about football, because up to nearly half time, I was enjoying the game. The team were trying, even Utaka was exercising himself. There were great big wodges of time when the ball was up the Chelsea end and we had several chances at the goal, one in the first five minutes of the game. We got the ball off of them quite often as well. I concede that even I could see the horrible horrible mistakes, unfortunately always near the goalmouth, and Chelsea certainly made the most of them. OK, the score says it was a walkover, but it wasn't! I wasn't the only one who thought that, because the people around me were saying that Chelsea didn't look that great in the first half. Some people in the crowd when we were leaving were even saying it was a good game! That said, we have obviously got problems, but I don't know what they are. I'll leave that to you to debate, as you all know what you are talking about. I'm probably embarrassing myself, but hey, thats how I saw it! and I felt I had my 20 quids worth as well. Meanwhile, I am off to wind Moonarmy at ManC up. Brighton 2 - ManC 1. Wot a laugh! and Moonarmy thinking he was on the brink of world domination!
