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

    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.

    Was it our fans that did that to your coach? If so, they're fucking imbeciles. Yeah I was away at a wedding in Wales all weekend so I didn't see or hear anything of the game other than the result and who scored. I had a feeling our front 3 would do well and I can now see why KJ was happy to let Chaplin go to Coventry when Ronan Curtis is in such lethal form. Pitman was our leading scorer last season and he can't get a look in this season. I hope he keeps it up because he's the type of player who can bag 30 goals if he stays fit. Especially in this league, where to be blunt, some of the defences leave a lot to be desired in terms of quality. Also, REALLY pleased with the acquisition of Joe Mason. He's easily Championship level quality and should give us something extra if he's prepared to knuckle down and get his career back on track.

    Because it's still only 5 games and means nothing more than that in the total scheme of the whole season. Plus, a lot of teams flatter to deceive early in a season and fall away when other teams catch them up in terms of fitness/injuries/squad gelling etc. And I include us (Portsmouth) as possibly in that bracket. Although we similarly only just missed out on the playoffs last season. I could well be wrong and you could be up there all season. It's just a hunch, nothing more, nothing less. Certainly not personal. I have nothing against Peterborough. You're not Southampton for instance

    I know, I was trying to empathise with your situation as it can't be nice watching a team that can't defend properly. I mean, you conceded 5 at home to Peterborough and I don't think they will be even close to the reckoning come the end of the season. I think we will though as I can't see us losing that many games. We do have a bit of pace up front and we tend to play a front 3 at home. Jamal Lowe should have a field day against your defence but I'm not counting any chickens..

    Well, look on the bright side. You've got Pompey away next week. So you'll probably beat us 1-0 and kickstart your season.

    Thrashed Oxford 4-1 today which makes 3 wins in a row and our best start to a season since 1988-89. I just hope it's not a false dawn as I've seen plenty of teams start the season well and then fade away fast. Consistency is key.

    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.
