  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. That's definitely true and the references to Psycho were, as Mark Kermode pointed out in his review, certainly not accidental.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. No Brett Pitman in the L1 team of the year?! He scored 22 goals. Bit harsh if you ask me. I mean, don't get me wrong, Will Grigg has been great for Wigan but Pitman's scored 4 more goals and played really well, albeit he was out for a while injured.
  13. Yeah we sucked tonight. Managed to equalise with an absolute pearler from Pitman and then Clarke and Donohue proceeded to just gift a goal to Bradford by being completely indecisive at the back. Yeah goes without saying we need to beat Charlton and, if we don't, then forget the playoffs completely. I think we might even be out of it now but it depends on how other teams get on around us of course. But we're running out of games. Never should have lost that match tonight but KJ insists on playing this 4-1-4-1 formation away from home. As soon as he bought a sub on and switched 4-2-3-1, we equalised..but, it's academic. We got outplayed.
  14. Yep, to say we've got to win tonight is an understatement. My concern is Bradford's godawful pitch which they don't seem to have sorted out, despite it being bad for a while now. Having said that, Bradford are hardly in great form either so we really need to take advantage of that tonight. Because Charlton next will be a really tough game.
  15. That's pretty cool that there were away fans invited to your social club and it was a good natured affair. The vast majority of Pompey fans are pretty decent. The troublemakers were weeded out years ago and we don't have the same rep we used to - which was mainly down to the 657 crew and their moronic behaviour. I remember when I was pretty young in the early 80s and witnessing running battles between Pompey and Milwall fans. Thankfully, those days seem to be over now. Pretty tight at the top still after Saturdays games. Gonna be a really close run in. Your game in hand could well work in your favour, if you take advantage of it. We've got 4 games left and I reckon we need to win at least 3 of them but, of course, it depends on how other teams do as well.
