You Happy with 'Appy?
He won over the fans and turned my doubts into hopes of a bright future. Unfortunately reality kicked in like it always does with Pompey, he had left for Forest and we were forced to assign Guy and Stuart to temporarily take managerial roles. We didn't do all that bad and after weeks of narrowing down, Pompey elected Michael Appleton as our new manager.
I got the same feeling I did when we got Cotts, another inexperienced coach except even worse, this guy looked like Lord Voldemort! After that ugly 2-0 defeat at Watford I knew he wouldn't last but it was still too early to be sure. He turned it around and got 7 points out of 9 in the next 3 games.
I believe our 2-0 win at Watford on Monday shows how much this club has come in such little time with Appy. Hopefully he doesn't make a huge mistake and move to some random club at the bottom of the Championship and fail, then become a League One coach for Chesterfield and get booed off the pitch at the end of every game! But I now put my trust in Appy that he is able to preserve a historically-rich club and keep the fans loyalty intact. We just have to take it a game at a time and slowly climb up the table.
For now lets just hope we can get cooperative owners soon enough, so we can become the next Man City minus the attitude!
