Glad we stayed at home??
It was not pleasant to watch. Just have to take it on the chin. Positives, Rocha.
until the goals started rattling in, whilst not pretty, it was not all bad...defeat, in all honesty, was expected but a spanking was something we could have done with avoiding!
i know i should really start giving in, but i WILL NOT until we are done - remember we got spanked 5-0 at birmingham in the great escape season? that was that is what most thought...7pts from safety with 14 games to go, yet it will take some effort but why bother if we are throwing in the towel now eh!
Rug, we were absolute pants, we knew as soon as Mullins and Hughes are named we are going to defend. However once again we are not good enough to keep a really good side out. Grant is a naive as was Hart and Adams and just as strange with his selections. Ben Haim is never a left back and was exposed, Wilson is a decent player but way out of his depth in this company.These defeats hurt and reflect how poor we are just right for Sunderland and the Scum!! Basinas, Yebda and the Prince should have started and Finnan should have been in at Left Back as he has some idea of the role. At least my journey was a short one today, well done to the lads and lasses who travelled for nothing yet again.
I disagee (slightly) about the tactics being bad. or at least, I think they wern't strange selections. Yes, basinas, yebda and boeting would have improved the squad, however as this was our third (away) game in the week, and we have another game on tuesday, which is VERY important, and another game at the weekend which is VERY important, it does make sense to rest our stars, when the chances are, they would have made little diference to the end result.
We never expected a result today anyway, can we escape relegation? Who knows but to be perfectly honest i don't really care, the only thing i care about is that i have a Pompey to support for years to come no matter what league they play in.
Steve C
Steve C - yes me too, but staying up is a 'nice to have'. And beating the scummers is critical!
I was very impressed with Wilson's goal - contrasted with Dindane's and Utaka's clearances over the bar. Perhaps they should exchange positions?
erithacus rubecula
All games are important, the body language of the players said it all, O'Hara was trying to get effort out of the others and was taken off!! To lose like this was poor, we just gave in, and Hughes and Mullins in particular are miles out of thier depth again.
