iv said all season this squad isnt good enough & todays awful performance & poor decisions by harry has proven it.
too rub it in city smash another team & seal 4th.
as soon as we took defoe off i knew we were in trouble. he is the only player up front with pace & good movement. we need a goal so he takes off by far out top scorer. yes, defoe was quiet but he didnt have much service & also many games he is quiet & then pops up with a goal.
big mistake from harry. i said a few wks ago i dont like harrys obsession with subbing defoe off early all the time & its backfired again. we need defoe on the pitch when we need a goal.
fergie dont take rooney off when they need a goal.
soon as pav came on it was a lot easier for the pompey defence. no pace up there, just pav & crouch who are very static & have no pace.
i still dont think pav & bentley are good enoughf or us.
the rest of the players except gomes, bale & maybe crouch were average.
iv said all season we have too many weaknesses & iv being dismissed as too negative but it was shown today.
we miss lennon too much & without defoe on the pitch we never look like scoring.
well done pompey, u deserved it.
no we are knackered & heart broken for the arsenal game & wilson will miss the next 2 games.
still think if we can hold ourselves together & battle till the end then we can hang on to 5th & get a uefa cup place.
SB - you've just gotta love this - you can come out and blast the team to your heart's content - and I'm sorry you are not a supporter - supporters support! This latest diatribe of yours has finally convinced me to block your inane negative prattling.

You gotta love her!
Hell I'd marry her if i could.
Endless fun guaranteed!
Nevermind Yiddos, look on the brightside, you have improved a hell of a lot since Harrys arrival and you may yet make it into the CL.
Not quite over yet.
Fab (thats me).
you have to win all your games to get 4th now. going to be difficult, as with todays game with extra time. your going to see quite a few tired legs come wednesdays game with Arsenal. its not looking to good at the moment.
You forget that this is a cup game and it doesn't matter if your in the prem or div 3. The players always perform to another level in these games. We had 28+ shots at there goal a penalty decision go against us. It was not meant to be. The pitch did us no favours either.
Its been a long season and considering where we have come from its a huge leap forward. We been in the 4th spot for long periods of the season so to say these players are not good enough is wrong. Its not over until the final game of the season, A lot of tough games coming up but the quality is there.

spursbabe i thought taking bently off was a mistake, he was crossing ok and linking with corluka well. krancjar is to similar to replace him in the hope of something different. if anything he should have subbed hudds after 75 mins cos he was knackered i think we could of sneaked it if we had put eidur on early.
defo SB, BALE has been the only one who looks like doing some thing. his step over to cross for the "goal" was zidane style. modric has been weak and not shown signs of the skill that has made us all take notice of him. hopefully lennon will be fit this weds.
modric not been aas good but to be far he broke his leg & missed many months some i going to give him the benefit of the doubt.
i dont think lennon should or play in the arsenal match as he is only just back in training. he will need a good few wks more to get match fit.
then after the last 2 games i have to say i cant see anykind of result for us. if we lose then man city will run away with 4th.
im totaly sick now and feel like smashing things. i know im being negative but i hurts like hell to see all the hard work thrown away.
SB, it's a bit early to say City have sealed it. Yes, things are looking dark but they can lose a couple just like anyone else. I said early in the season that we would need a cushion going into April and we failed to do that, but it aint over until the well proportioned lady starts to yodel.
We have been unlucky this season with long injuries to King, Woodgate, Modric, Lennon, Dawson and niggly ones to Defoe, Huddlestone, BAE, Pav, Bentley and Jenas, though most would say the last one was a good thing.
So all in all, this season has been a good one.
Who knows what the next few games hold, this may yet be our finest hour.
B2S i agree with SB and thin kthat the last 2 games have killed our season, (my words not SB) weve been outplayed and hussled out of 2 games that we should of won. this was the easyest way routed to the final weve had in 20 years and the best finish to a league in about the same. and now weve lost it . i know we all stay positive here and i try but going into this run of games we needed to wint his gme at least. and cos we didnt i think weve shown a weakness in not having pace or passion at times. man utd chelsea and the arse will expose that more and after today and the sunderland game i feel we will be taking 0 points out of them gamnes.
If the players are as defeatest as some of our supporters we are fucked. The close season is the time to address the problem of who stays, who goes.
Until then, we get behind the team, be positive and keep everything crossed, at least until the maths don't work.
Yeah B2S - hopefully they are not - and I do not believe they are. If anything, they should now have the motivation to really pick it up for the next few games. I'm guessing they want 4th even more than we do.
Although - as you point out I suspect there are some on this board who would like to see us miss out so they can prattle on about how the team is not up to standard etc. Not really necessary to name the defeatists who are already thinking the season is over.
