Hard listening but a good result I didn't think we had a hope of getting a point tonight.

Just hope they play as well on Saturday.


It was. Pompey attack *clench* comes to nothing *relax*

Solid defensive display but a pity we don't have anyone who looks likely to score and a poor midfield.

Going to be a long season.

Actually quite enjoyed that, must be the masochistic tendencies surfacing.

10 points for the best falling over of the season - noone will match Lewis Young!!!!!

Paul Cook's post-match interview with BBC Radio Solent - https://www.audioboom.com/boos/3480861

He says Tubbs' effort was onside. Thoughts of those there?

Same here...enjoyed it. We are far more organised than we were at this stage last year, and we have a greater physical presence . However agree that it is difficult to see wher goals will come from and we need creativity in midfield.

For me, the good - Edwards, Walton, McEnerney

Poor - Rooney, young, smith

Pompey dominated as expected but over complicated their play by trying to score the perfect goal. Woodman not tested much but dealt with everything well. Whoever chose Walton as MoM needs a trip to Specsavers. McNerney for me.

I don't think our forwards had a shot... unless you count Gwion as a forward. I don't think they had a shot Saturday either.

That said I thought Lee Barnard worked his socks of for the team but while he was doing that there was no one getting into the box on the rare occasions we did try to go forward.

The centre half pairing looked strong and the keeper looks decent. However, we have a problem in central midfield. We are not passing the ball forward. Other sides are getting to us and forcing us back which means we are hoofing the ball forward. Then there is not enough support to the forwards which means the balls coming straight back. Now I can spot the problem but with the players we have I'm at a loss on how to solve it.

Still one more point towards safety.

4003 there tonight, including 1706 Pompey fans in the away end (and a few in the home section of the East Stand).
and they were standing in second half. Absolute joke we had coppers in ground yet home fans had listen to there abuse.

For once I thought the Lino got all their offsides spot on personally. Very Happy

Said this morning, that I didn't care how we played, as long as we got something from the game. We got a point, we defended very very well, Joe McNerney was absolutely superb, the players put in 110% all game and they never ever gave up, so no complaints from me at all. A very good point.

Roll on Cambridge Saturday!

Disapointung set out for draw. Encouraging finished better than started. Why no Deacon? Thought Fred did well MOM nothing wrong though his punching than catching worries me at times.

Spot on. We set up to contain them and did the job well. With only 1 up front we were never going to have loads of shots but really theirs were half chances as well.

McNerney was outstanding, Woodman handled everything confidently and the whole team worked hard. That is all we can ask.

Was bang in line (unlike Paul Cook) and it looked a yard off to me.

Tubbs fluffed the best chance in the first half.

I always think that good managers build a side from the back. It looks that MY is tying to do this.

We were relegated because we let in too many easy goals. Given time, I think MY will get it right.

Pompey dominated but most of the time it was pass after pass across the back line. If they had gone at us I think they could have overpowered us, but were far too slow in the buildup.

Tubbs seemed to have lost a fair bit of pace and was shepherded well most of the game. Much of their buildup was too conventional and lacked any real defence splitting passes.

A good point, well earned.
