Reflecting on Derby defeat

Reflecting on Derby defeat
I was not at the game yesterday, nor was I able to follow it so - and I hope that you do not mind Tim! - I have taken a post from Pompeytim as the 'reflection' on the 3-1 loss at Derby.

So, over to Tim...

Missing: A defence. Reward offered

Yesterday was painful, but I was baffled a how the defence seemed to go AWOL.

Pearce, Rocha, Ben Haim and Halford are all highly-rated, and rightly so. But not a single one of them seemed to turn up first half yesterday.

Derby looked like a good side, but they took the Mickey. I've not seen a team have so much space & time on the ball as they had yesterday.

It felt like we had had a defender sent off. It was odd.

I don't understand how all 4 could be so bad in the same week!

I think the that with still no manager appointed is starting to effect the team, we are now well in to our 3rd week with still no one really sure who will be the next boss, all though a couple of weeks ago i started to lean towards O'driscoll im not so sure now he's the right man, the players we have need a strong and determined manager. O' driscoll doesn't really inspire me, im wandering if he can inspire the team something tells me no. I don't really know enough about solskjaer to form an opinion on him, but one thing you can say about him is he's a winner. i'm wandering if CSI are caught in two minds as well.

Baker has a Pompey future... apparently

A few eyebrows were raised when Carl Baker, who continues to be linked with Coventry, was left out of the squad to face Walsall. I think we've all see then social media reaction?

On this day in history...22nd August

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 22nd August.

Improvement needed

Milan Lalkovic, making his last appearance for Pompey since January, prior to a loan switch to Ross County, returned from injury to face his former club Walsall on Saturday.

Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.
