Looking back/thinking forward with Chix

Looking back/thinking forward with Chix
Vital Pompey prides itself on the interaction we have with our members.

We like to think that we rarely claim to speak, or even say that we do speak, for all Pompey fans and instead look to gage a wider opinion from our own thoughts shared in that attempt to get the wider views shared by our fellow fans!

As such we welcomed answers to some (ideally all) of the following questions, which Chix was happy to do.

Here is what they said...

1) Overall thoughts of the 2010/11 season?
Well we survived and are still in business that's good enough for me .. I consider a BIG + that we are still in the Championship .. Well done Steve Cotterill.

2) Who was the player sold or released (in the summer of 2010 or during the season) that we most missed in 2010/11?
Doesn't fall into either category ... but how good would have Jamie O'Hara been this season.

3) And the player sold or released (in the summer of 2010 or during the season) that we least missed?
David James .. I really thought we'd miss him big time .. but Ashdown did a great job all in all and although he had a few mishaps.. didn't James ?

4) What did you find good about the 2010/11 season?
Erm.. Survival !?

5) And the thing(s) you found most bad?
The Pompey Supporters Trust spouting off every five minutes about how they wanted a say in this and a say in that .. drives me up the ... wall .. nuff said.

6) How many games did you attend in the 2010/11 season?
All league and cup at home except one .. Barnsley.

7) Do you have any idea what you plans for attendance in 2011/12 will be?
The same /.. plus a few choice away games .. Seagulls, Scummers and Blackpool.

8) So, onto Steve Cotterill - what are your thoughts on the boss?
Top man .. doesn't deserve to be slagged off by fickle supporters who think they can do better.

9) Who did you think was the most impressive loanee we had in 2010/11?
Ritchie De Laet by a mile.. although Halford comes a good second.

10) What about the least effective and impressive loanee Cotterill brought in last term?
Not a loanee .. but Kitson was a crap purchase .. Dickinson and Sonko both gave more than Kitson..

11) Favourite memory/game of 2010/11 was?
Erm.. Leeds .. & QPR H & A.

12) What about your worst moment/game in 2010/11?
None spring to mind... other than reading the crap in The News hyping up a takeover that I bet isn't even completed by the time this email is read ..

13) You player of the season for 2010/11 and why?
Tough call but for me .. Rocha kept us up.

14) What about the least impressive player of 2010/11? Or should that be worst!
Kitson.. Kitson.. Kitson.. Kitson.. .. no brainer..

15) What would be your Pompey hopes, aspirations or expectations for 2011/12?
Same as this year .. that'll do me.

16) And finally add anything else you would like here...
I think the Cee Lo Green album is brilliant !
I'd like the cost of Stella to decrease and..
I'd like to see the Pompey Trust realise they have no voice and are an embarrassment to our club and fold .. but of course I only say that because I never get my arse and do anything positive (do I) and they do ohh so much for the club and represent the view of Pompey fans everywhere .. as long as you pay them a fiver ... sorry but you asked !

Not convinced at all about Pottey Cotty, he had a high quality first time ( for this league) most pundits - who actually DO know picked Pompey to make the play offs were aling with a lot of fans absolutely baffled by tactics. Indeed, the name Pottey Cotty came from some wag at one of our manager's famous " weshouldawontha" media moments. Otherwise agree re Ce Lo Green and Stella Lager is really French onion soup beer

Frippy .. me and the Pompeytrust .. now don't get me started.. I'll always give Ken Malley respect for his work with the FFF but the trust for me always was going to be a sitting target.. don't get me wrong the individuals have Pompey at heart 100% without doubt ..but I just don't concur with the view that you can have represenattive harmony from such a diverse section of the community ... still that's another 'Chew The Fat' subject ..

oh and I do like to be beside the seaside PompeyYong..

i know alot of good people involved in the trust, and know they mean well but i have to admit that i do get abit annoyed with the constant 'statements' coming out - what is important is that they remember they speak for the minority, and not the majority as it often seems to be suggested they do?
i think its important that they are mindful with the pressure put on CSI...

as for the answers as fans we all think, at times, we know best - but i genuinely do think that cotts could have, and hopefully will do in the future, done alot of things differently. his handling of some players was poor, very poor. tactically he made a number of eras and i think the overall situation of the club saw him cut alot of slack whereas the likes of adams and hart were slatted big time...
he gets a clean slate with me now but there can be no excuses next season as this is his team, he can accuse no one else of anything.

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.

Pompey Predictions League - update no.28

The Pompey predictions league is very much part of this site now! This continued with a defeat to Orient last Saturday.
