unbeliavable, i honestly am shocked, 4 - 5 -1 doesnt work!! ok reading, since then we have pulled blanks!! need to bloody reshuffle harry! get utaka off that bloody pitch.. NOW!! hes a waste, stick in someone who will turn games on its head, matty!! get diop off, put nugent in, kanu in when he returns, then see what happens, we were useless, not booed for a long time,,,,,u - ******** - taka !
PompeyGleamer
utaka will be top class, but ive been saying for several weeks now that he has to come out of the side... in all fairness mate diop was poor today, but he would still be in my side - but then again who was good? nuge was good when he came on and as always benji gave his all - 'if' he had some help it would help him and us...
pompeyrug
utaka will be top calss?? in his bloody dreams mabye, i dont see anything top class about him, apart from his top class *****tyness
PompeyGleamer
You've got to drop players when they're not on their top form, especially when you've got top class players can't get in the side. Why can't 'Arry see it and drop Utaka to the bench? Matty could have come on for Paramot when he was injured, esp as the situation was desparate and Hreidesson was pushing up anyway. Is it true the atmosphere was lacking today?
tracyc
come on Gleamer lets give the fella a chance, he has been 'crap' for a couple of months now but he needs time, a spell out of the side will do him and us good...
pompeyrug
im not sure about today's atmosphere tracy, but in the games i have been to this has certainly died off from the days when i was a season ticket holder in our 'dark days'... were not used to 'the good times' tho are we? i reckon that when we can score at home it will lift a wieght off - but for that we need to go 4-4-2!
pompeyrug
rug's right, we gotta give Utaka a chance, I agree he should be benched because he hasnt been playing up to par but selling him would be crazy, it takes some time for players to settle, just look at krunchie and benji
whitestones
tracy, the atmosphere has gone this year. It started well today, but when the players dont repay the fans the atmosphere will stop!
pompey4me
We were beaten all over the park today. Tottenham's fans outsung, outwitted and outchanted us all game. Robinson's kicks were far superior to Jamo's, Kaboul had the measure of Benjani, Tottenham's midfield picked up all the 50/50's and their wingers looked far more dangerous. I can't believe Harry has played the same system through all of these home games when clearly it isn't working. They hustled us off the ball all game, forcing mistakes and then when Spurs had the ball we did very little to close them down. We need a new striker - a Yakubu, who can hold up the ball turn and use his pace to the goal. Benjani looks tired.
stillthewhizz
utaka didnt do toooo bad, he started the game brightly and when he say nugent was coming on, he got really stuck in as he thought it was him coming off. pedro and sulley had worse games.
jbaker
and robinsons kicks were shocking, we must have cheered a bad kick out at least 5 times. jamo didnt have a shocking kick at all. some not so good but no shockers
jbaker
weve carried utaka for too long, he is a great talent and must be given time but coem on 'arry make him fight for his place from the bench for a while eh? give matty taylor a chance, christ if need be recall songo'o - just bench utaka! you can accept a couple of bad games be had has had bad game after bad game after bad game for a good month or more now...
pompeyrug
Matty Taylor STAYING on the bench, the recent article about 14 players during ANC in Harrys mind and you guys counting an extra player means one thing. CYA Matty in a couple of weeks I am afraid.
GreenGiant13
Looking at the stats, quite an even game. Why are you having so much trouble scoring at home now though?
merlin
Merlin, it's cos for some reason Harry wont play 2 up front. Simple as that.
pompey4me
yep it really is that simple... kanu must have been one that had the flu as it did sound - reading into what 'arry said after the game - that he would have gone 2 up top, but in that case why not have started nuge alongside benji? the fella again did well when he came on - but i bet he wont even get on as a sub for a few weeks again now!
pompeyrug
10 goal attempts and five on target... Not in the game I watched this afternoon... Anybody what to try and list them... you'll struggle to think of five .... Pompey were awful today absolutely awful. No other words for it.
Chix
rug, i read somewhere that Kanu was back home attending his fathers funeral.
pompey4me
really, i had not heard that - if thats the case i am obviously sorry for his loss.
pompeyrug
yes mate, it's on the pfc website, in the article: news, team unchanged.
pompey4me
My condolences to 'the big man!'
pompey4me
shame to hear that, ive not really looked at anything - pfc site, pompey pages, nothing really today as my head has been banging, or really i should say my ears, they feel like they are going to burst - ear infections you see...
pompeyrug
I felt like that Saturday.....you see, took my workers out for the night.....went to the Mandaric suite for the dinner/dance......what a night, absoloutely fantastic. Great value for money, recommend to all.
pompey4me
yours was self inflicted tho :-)
