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

    We were shocking yesterday. Improved a bit in the second half but had 0 shots on target before half time. Blackpool probably deserved the win. We're really missing Ben Thompson in midfield who's been recalled by Milwall. He used to pull the strings and break up play really well. We signed Andy Cannon from Rochdale as his replacement but it's too early to say how he's gonna fit in. He came on as a sub and did ok yesterday but..hmm..shit game all round.

    Yeah I don't know what happened today but that's twice Gillingham have beaten us this season. We also seem to be going through a bit of a blip as we've lost 2 of the last 3 games and our unbeaten away record went up in smoke today as well. Still the xmas fixture craziness is a test for a lot of teams. What's also worrying is that we lost Nathan Thompson to injury as well today. He's one of our key players.

    Your manager sounds like a complete tool @neoELITE. Does he get his tactical knowledge from playing Football Manager? Great win for Pompey yesterday beating Sunderland 3-1. Obviously their defender getting sent off soon after the start of the second half turned the game in our favour but we were starting to get on top before that and were playing some good football. Really impressed by how confident we looked yesterday going forward. Sunderland didn't play badly by any means, even with ten men, but we brushed them aside fairly comfortably in the end. Nice to see a near sellout at Fratton Park as well. 19,400 attendance yesterday. Interesting to see how Luton and Charlton have stepped up to the plate. Both are on a really good run.Am surprised to see Luton doing so well but they've been pretty consistent over the last couple of months and I think with Sunderland and Charlton are our biggest promotion rivals. It's hotting up at the top.

    Pompey have wobbled a little recently but I'm not too worried as we're still playing well and will be top at xmas. Sunderland are breathing down our necks now, however, and will go top if they win both games in hand. However, we're playing them on Saturday at FP - so it will be interesting to see how we match up. Barnsley and Sunderland are two tough games in succession but we got a point at Barnsley who are unbeaten at home which is a pretty good result I think, especially after we lost at home to Charlton. Still, only 2 defeats in 22 games (bizarrely both at home) so no complaints from me!

    Well if there was a choice between winning the league and not winning the league I think I would be able to guess which one our fans would prefer. But, yeah, clearly for your team, you have more pressing concerns right now.

    Another away win for Pompey and extended our lead to 4 points at the top. Let's keep this consistency going!

    Battlefield V

    Picked this up on tuesday on PS4 and am really enjoying it so far. The gunplay is very good and going into it I was a bit wary as to whether it would be an improvement on BF1 or not but it definitely feels like it is. I put about 250 hours into BF1 but I wasn't the biggest fan of how some guns seemed really OP and unbalanced (Hellreigel, noobamatico etc.). That's not to say that BFV doesn't have that issue because clearly it does with guns like the KE7. But, hopefully, it won't be as big an issue this time around. Oh and nice to see that explosive/grenade spam is less of an issue now. The indoor maps on BF1 were full of it.

    Talking of top of the league.., Somehow Pompey are still top of L1, even though our form has dipped in the last few weeks and we’ve been pretty lucky in terms of digging out results. Today was a typical example. We scored a decent opener after 10 mins and then seemed to invite loads of pressure from Bradford who, thankfully for us, are a team whose confidence is shot to pieces because they missed probably 3 or 4 complete sitters in the course of the match. They’re also really shit. Anyway, Sunderland are breathing down our necks now, as I expected they would be. They can go top if they win their game in hand. Whilst i still feel confident about our promotion chances, I think it could stay a pretty close run thing throughout the season with no single team completely dominating.

    That's tough to take, @neoELITE. I do empathise. Last season you went on that amazing run as well and to fall from those heights.. Talking of Burton, we've got them at home on Tuesday. Fleetwood came to frustrate and didn't have a single shot on target all game. One of their players was booked for time wasting after just 30 mins! I expect us to beat Burton but who knows. There's a risk of complacency I guess. That's our only realistically dangerous opponent right now..although we still have to play Barnsley and Sunderland who I expect to be our two strongest rivals for promotion.

    6 points clear at the top! I'm loving this season so far. Also, I like the way KJ tweaked the formation today to try and improve our home form. It worked pretty well although it wasn't a great game. We scored from our only attempt on target in the whole 90 mins. But, if you're going to win promotion then these are the sort of games you need to manufacture a result from.

    Still unbeaten and top of the league. I predict we'll be 5 points clear at the top by xmas. (So we'll probably lose the next game then!)

    Christ on a bike. You're fucked then because it will probably be too expensive to get rid of the deluded nut job!

    Surely he's on borrowed time? I mean, you've still yet to win this season.

    Well I was right about it not being a draw at least..although Peterborough could easily have snatched a point at the end there. Sounds like it was a pretty tight game that could have gone either way. Delighted with the win though as it takes us to the top and is a decent morale boost at this early stage of the season.

    Top two clash in League 1 today. I have a bad feeling that Peterborough will win fairly comfortably. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 2 or 3 nil. We were terrible last week against Shrewsbury, although we had a few players out injured or on international duty in the case of Ronan Curtis - our top goalscorer, so that didn't help. I would be happy with a point today, although I have a feeling it won't end up being a draw.
