Penny Mordaunt has just claimed in the H of C that Portsmouth FC is the only 100% community owned club in the country!

 

Do they ALL lie down there? Is it something in the waters?

 

Just watched that. It does seem to be endemic.

When Barker was appointed I was the first one to say WRONG GUY. In reality it is not his fault. The board were at fault, first of all by appointing Catlin and then allowing him to influence the decision to employ Barker. We are struggling this season......

next season there is no prem payment and season ticket sales will be down.

So, in reality there will not be enough money around to keep even these low quality players onboard.

We need major money and trust cannot provide it..........

 

 

 

Most sensible comments from a site ever.

He said: ‘I’m still working out where we are going to go next season in terms of how we are going to get promoted.

 

Lincoln, Hereford, Salisbury, Gateshead, Kidderminster...

 

Even Eastleigh perhaps ?

Pompey have now scored just four goals in nine home games since Barker’s arrival in December.

 

Tbh I'm impressed anyone turns up to watch them.

 

In league 2! Ha sometimes I have to pinch myself. What an absolutely awful team and a nightmare for them. I hope they are still in league one and two in a decade, then we will see how loyal their fans are...

Corpy isn't happy over on pol...

 

I disagree that we should support Barker. Not only have we not imroved since sacking GW (which was the right thing to do) in the points per game we're achieving Barker's dour, turgid style of play is driving people away from FP and will without doubt see a fall in ST renewals for next season. I suspect the board realise this and that's why Catlin issued his "more money to spend on players" rallying call earlier this week. People seem to be suggesting that the style of football will somehow miraculously transform next season once Barker can bring in new players. He's brough in almost a full team of his own men and there's been no improvement at all. He's allegedly tightened up the defence but our GD has failed to improve in the slightest so the net gain once again is nothing. We've scored 7 goals in our last ten games which shows a pathetic lack of threat and to help address this Barker has sent the only two natural goalscorers we have on the books out on loan - where both have scored several goals. Not only are we not scoring, we're not even threatening to score. In the last three games we've managed 4 shots on target. That's four on target efforts in 270 minutes play. Or one every 67 minutes.

 

Twenty or so games into his reign I can see no evidence of any progression under Barker, no style of play emerging, no method to his team selections and no promise. His style of play at Crawley was described as defensive & dour and his lat seven games there resulted in one goal. Why should we support this man? Nothing, absolutely nothing I've seen or read about him since he's been here makes me think he will bring success to this club. His churlish comments blaming previous managers, players and the Dalai Lama for poor performances are just the icing on an extremely **** cake

I think you'll find that MoneyPenny actually stood up and said, would the prime minister like to join me in a shallow PR campaign for votes in portsmouth by glossing over the demise of shipbuilding and talking about other stuff?

And he said, indeed, let's heap praise on the local football supporters, big-up their little fantasy about 100% community ownership - and also remind everyone that I appointed a minister for the city so I really care about you all, so please vote for the tubby one in the swimsuit.

 

 

Think I'll go and find her on YouTube flopping off that top board and hitting the water like a garage door - it makes me laugh just thinking about it!

Corpy, I'm sure you still look in here quite often, so, can you please give us one of your (in)famous 'Skate transfer rumour' posts please? Come on, spill the beans, who is going to be shipped out and who are you going to bring in at season end?

I will give Barker credit for improving their defence, which as we all know is the basis for success in football. Though not usually if "defence" means 11 mean permanently behind the ball and no-one in the opposing half. Still not sure why Chesterfield were so bad against them though.

 

They do have a couple of decent players there. Of course we know Connolly is at Oxford for now, not quite sure why he dropped Jervis and Wallace midweek given that they were their best players in the previous few matches and Jervis in particular looks like he knows what he's doing - though I'm not sure he's a finisher.

 

God knows where Barcham's gone though - he was decent at the start of the season, with Connolly-like levels of performance. I note he hasn't played since the thrashing at Sçunthorpe though, so maybe he's one of those one-way players who doesn't defend... which basically just sounds like he should be up front, cos no-one else is.

[h=1]David Connolly: Oxford United striker eyes full set of promotions[/h]A dig at Pompey??

 

"I still want to play for a few years," he said.

"I've got another year left at Portsmouth. I don't think it's case of savouring it. It's my work, it's a job and something I'll keep doing until I've had enough.

"It's good to come here. It's a professional set-up, a professional set of lads and when you have facilities like that around you want to carry on but when they dry up it's time to call it a day."

I've watched him quite a few times and IMO he's crap. He has some pace, but has no actual talent to take advantage of it.

I love Portsmouth thanks to this thread.

 

In the past, I had only one club to support, and one club to hate, but without following the hated team's fortunes on a weekly basis.

 

These days, watching Portsmouth fail week by week is kinda like supporting them, isn't it? I honestly feel like I properly have two clubs now.

She was asked to do a visual representation of her local football club using the medium of dive.

 

The only thing missing was the FA Cup in hands, symbolically taking them down, and the fact that she never surfaces again.

I particularly like the part about not relying on increased season ticket revenue but "inventive ideas".

 

What could this mean?

 

Answers here please... I'll get it rolling...

 

* A reserve price on eBay for a splash and dash with the lovely Penny

* A reserve price on eBay to make up the numbers with the youth squad clearing up dog turds before the senior squad have a kick-about on the luxury training park

* A chance to win a discounted fridge from Champagne Iain if you enter the prize draw
