    Eurrrgh. Started second half brightly and though we were on top, only to fucking concede from our own defensive free kick taken short. McGrandles culpable for me, along with Palmer for not punching it wide but straight out, though Alan Parry blamed Lewis Montsma for taking the free kick short. City created fuck all except one chance straight after. Can see us slipping to 8th by end of season. Could do with a 2 week covid break tbh.

    Eight players out now at the moment, at least two that won't be seen again this season.

      Portsmouth currently playing Shrewsbury off the park. The iFollow commentary team spent nearly half an hour sneering at the Cowley style before finally spotting they're playing sharp 2-touch moves on the ground and we can't get near them.

      Ryan Sears looking like someone who won a charity auction to get in the match day squad.

        Fuck's sake.

          Earliest and highest profile one I can recall was in the Premier League quite early in the 2019/20 season, from 1:08 in the below...

            The hapless Sears was hooked at HT and Salop have now pulled one back through a bit of individual magic from Ogbeta.

            Pompey continue to play around us like cones.

              Red card for Marquis. Predicting the possession stats not to alter too much.

                Couldn't follow the Wimbledon game today as I was driving my daughter home for the university holidays.

                As agreed in advance, the Cobblers fan in the office called me on the motorway with a full time update from his iFollow viewing.

                Fair play, if my team had conceded an 88th minute winner and had a 97th minute penalty saved against a relegation rival (that meant they pulled level on points and one place behind through one goal difference with two games in hand) I wouldn't have made the call.

                It's all gone a bit hope, despair, kills me again.

                    Liam is actually a very good goalkeeper, which sadly means he's probably not much use in the current injury issues City have.

                      Guess which team are still in 17th place. Go on.

                        Joey Barton is trending on Twitter. It's never good news.

                          If EE-L is sick of 17th, he could try passing to a colleague in a blue shirt from time to time.

                          Unfair to pick him out. As well as Sears, who looked as adrift as I've seen seen any player since Dean Craven, I'd have subbed 9 of them at HT. Credit to Portsmouth*. Onwards and... well... probably not upwards.

                          *Fuck, typing that felt horrible.

                              I mean, I'll take it after where Town were under Ricketts.

                                  Rumours of him going to Preston, I think.

                                  Ridiculous

                                    Given the asinine, mealy-mouthed defence of Barton from the Rovers fan on a recent WSC podcast which I got round to hearing yesterday that would actually make me chuckle a little.

                                      Gah, that was 2 points definitely dropped. Game should have been long over by the time they equalised, which makes the fat coach driver's proclamation that they 'deserved to win' utterly hilarious.

                                      Crewe and Northampton for us this weekend, while Posh and Sunderland play each other. The word I'm getting is 'pivotal'.

                                        Portsmouth were the best side I've watched this season.

                                        It was a shame about some of the 'game management' that went on, but every team does it and it's the Cowley brothers, so 'gamesmanship' is a given.

                                        I quipped on the football Whatapp group that the Pompey physio was their MoM. He was all over the pitch.

                                        Quiet pleased with that one.

                                            Plough Lane to finally open to a limited set of fans for an under 23 game test event :

                                            Going to be very tough to get tickets even for people like me who have debentures, understandably so though.

                                            Hopefully this will still be relevant to the D3 thread when it happens.

                                                I'm in the same priority band as RdG, I think, from his post. Unlikely, I'd have thought. But we'll see,

                                                    I have, yeah. It was very odd. It's a fine stadium. I think I might wait until we have a proper game with everyone in.
