Pompey suffer another defeat

1 - 0

Elland road




Pompey crashed to their 5th defeat in 10 league matches, hardly inspiring stuff, another slow start seemed to cost us once more as Pugh headed home unchallenged, more to follow...........

Star Player

He had a solid game and looked our best defencive player and quite a threat going forward

Same old boring excuses from Cotterill. Pompey never play 90 minutes, but only for the second period of the game. Poor!

Look it's not working, we're now bearing on down towards a quarter of the season being completed and already miles behind the top teams. I know it's early days but we must change something players/tactics/manager?

well cant change players and the manager wont change his tactics so only one option left. Curbishley if he would take it. actually think cotts tactics for away games are not far off, even tho they haven't produced much results, but at home the performances and results have been absolutely dire

Enoughs enough now. I have stayed in Cotterill's corner for a long time, I did want to give him a chance. But he's had that chance and we're still playing poorly, not taking chances, and not GETTING RESULTS. We're also steadily marching the wrong way down the table while that lot down the road are flying. He's got to go now while we can still save the season and the international break is the best opportunity. Bring back Uncle Avram!

He went public with his, out of character, 'we're going there to attack', but then played 4 5 1, which is as annoying as you can get. Even this 'attacking' formation (which is actually more defensive...) , as usual, meant we were chasing the game by half time, the only time we looked good is when Kanu came on and showed everyone his abilities, he seems to always be the difference, just through his skill and experience, only he cant last much longer surely.....Cotterill persists to leave out Rocha, who is our best centre defender and would bring on Pearce no end, instead we have Halford in his place, who, imo, would be better suited to his Rb position, as much to put him back in the position he is most familiar withandto make room for Rocha. And Lawrence shouldnt be an automatic choice for both starting and captain. Cotterill needs help or he should be shown the door, the man is out of his depth with regards to tactics and inspiring his troops and his voice in the media makes a fool of himself, he needs media training.....who do we replace him with tho, who we can afford because i dont want Dowie

Hes also come out with this carp about herman and his previous achillies injury, hes worried that it might do herman some damage long term if he plays him, well he didnt care last year, for half a season and even gave him another year contract.....the blokes just a 'insert appropriate/appropriate word here'......i havent commented on any site for months, ive just been a daily scanner, but hes wound me up soo much!!!!!!!!!
02/10/2011 09:48:00
i have been calling for a change for a while now, the warning signs were there last year we only stayed up because of 2 lucky runs most of the time we were dire. week after week he gets it wrong, but the worse thing is he never learns, he constantly plays players out of position, he's got a good squad of player but doen't know how to get the best out of them. csi have to act now before its to late, before we enter freefall and staring league 1 in the face. things aren't going to change under cotterill's inept management.
