    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    2 wins out of 2 for Pompey. Nice to start the season so positively. Also, some big decisions for KJ today regarding team selection really seemed to pay off. Pleased that Ronan Curtis bagged a couple of goals as well. He looks like a decent signing already.

    @Spleen Nice programme my friend I remember going to the friendly against Liverpool that's pictured on the front of that programme. Up until I was about 9/10 I was a staunch Liverpool fan but I started going to Fratton Park regularly in about 1983/4 with my Granddad and watched us lift the old Division 3 title. I became a Pompey convert not long after. It was always my local team after all so I'm kind of glad I stopped becoming a glory hunter

    Congrats to Novak. It's good to see him back winning slams again. I felt a bit sorry for Anderson today as, after the first two sets, it looked like he was heading for a crushing defeat but, credit to him for making the third set competitive. I guess those previous two rounds really took their toll physically, as well as the inevitable nerves on the day.

    What a match Isner and Anderson was. I was also really impressed with Anderson's comments after the match about Isner. Huge respect there.
  5. Yeah I had a feeling we paid quite high wages. It's how we were able to entice players like Brett Pitman to drop down to League 1. I think he's on about 5k a week at least plus bonuses.
  6. Yeah you've done well to turn your season around. Next season I can see you pushing for automatic promotion with the right squad investment. Similarly, with Pompey I feel if we're shrewd about who we buy in the summer then I only can see us improving on this season. Overall, I'm still pleased with the season. It looks like a Top 10 finish which is not bad for our first season back in L1. Shame we couldn't quite make that playoff push but inconsistency let us down and that's something we'll need to work on next season. Also, Matt Clarke got voted as our Player of the Season at the awards dinner last night. Nice to see as he's been so consistent this year - one of the few defenders who has - and it's good that's been recognised. Pitman got a lot of goals but Matty saved us a few points too.
  7. Good luck @neoELITE - hope you make it into the playoffs mate. Still got a chance, even though Scunthorpe look immoveable right now. Our season is kind of sputtering out right now. I mean losing to fucking Bury - an already relegated team - is a bit embarrassing to put it mildly.
  8. That's definitely true and the references to Psycho were, as Mark Kermode pointed out in his review, certainly not accidental.
  9. I think this is a hell of a stretch interpretation and that's putting it mildly. @JPL's explanation of what happens in the movie is pretty much how I saw it too.
  10. Yeah I know man, I agree but when it matters the most we've (Pompey) kind of bottled it a bit really. You've still got a chance of making it but you gotta win that game in hand.
  11. Good luck in the playoffs. You can stick a fork in us, we're done. Practically dominated the second half in possession and chances but couldn't put one away. Conor Ronan blew two really good chances as well. At the end of the day, we weren't good enough when it mattered. The best teams find a way to score, even when they're not playing that well. EDIT - Still a decent season though, seeing as it's our first one back in L1. Something to build on for next year. Just need to make sure we end the season on a high and try and win the last two games.
  12. I wouldn't disagree much with that. I think Peterborough are out of it too. The only way Pompey are going to get back in the race is if we beat Charlton on Saturday. If it's a draw or a loss then it's over.
  13. He does make some odd comments though sometimes, Derek Adams. He said Pompey were "leggy", "defensive" and "came for a point" after the recent match..even though we came closest to winning the game in injury time. Strange.
  14. I thought this was a work of genius. One of the best thrillers I've seen in a long time. Joaquin Phoenix's understated performance was incredible. Also, I thought the downbeat tone and pervading sense of despair and emptiness really combined well to create this intensely claustrophobic atmosphere. The cinematography was top notch too.
  15. Yeah it is a load of bollocks, you're right. 12 goals and 12 assists is a great return in a season. I think a lot of it is down to how these particular players are chosen. And it's probably political or just favours certain teams and players.
