he basically says that the unhappiness expressed by fans made him select a formation he didn't want to.

 

Congratulations to Tis. Hopefully he can keep that run going and put another side ahead of the skates.

They're having a proper little meltdown this week, and Cook seems to have completely lost it. I can't see him keeping his job beyond the end of the season unless some incredible act of God somehow gets them promoted.

 

They really are an utter laughing stock. Their abject failure to get out of the division despite having a budget that's way greater than their opponents speaks volumes about failure at every level of the club. From the board, through management to recruitment it's been a colossal cluster **** season after season and extremely satisfying to watch.

 

WTFILN?

Any high points?

Yeah, the ref blowing the final whistle.

 

You have to admire that cheeky Scouse sense of humour...

 

Though he does look like a bloke who is ready to confront the next fan who tells him where he is going wrong.

Tune in next week for more play-off-based laughs.

Can't help wondering if the fans he was referring to are members of the board - specifically Pomagne Ian and the Trust board members. Comes across to me as more than a problem with the manager, its a dysfunctional club and board - which of course is great news for us since the problems will keep repeating even when they change the fall guy.

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, each and every time they boo - have they admitted that they do that yet? - what they are actually doing is boo-ing themselves?

 

You'd have to be very, very thick to do that !

 

So, yes, that's what they're doing :):)

They've realised that ownership of the comatose giant is too big a job - for themselves.

It's the pressure of their own virtual cup final, they are weighed down by their own inner expectation.

Sort of.

Or some other twaddle about warchests, rallying cries and plucky heroes.

:scared:

It strikes med that there's actually a whole special Pompey vocabulary, so I thought I'd start a dictionary. Additional entries welcome...

 

Bestest - most special supporters in World football, thanks to their unwavering support and boundless enthusiasm (see TCWTB)

TCWTB - affectionate acronym for Pompey's best loved and most enthusiastic son. TCWTB is popular with all.

Kipper Shed / Krap Notarff / Timber Tabernacle - famous for it's atmosphere (see Bestest) the Kipper Shed is an architectural and engineering marvel, and not just because it's still standing. At various times it's been reconceived as a an underwater casino, a potty and a turntable.

Existential dread - the feeling that all professional footballers who play for Pompey are for some reason struck with when playing at the Kipper Shed, and which explains all anomalous results.

Their cup final - the curious phenomenon which allows vastly inferior teams to consistently beat Pompey at the Kipper Shed, and which explains all anomalous results.

The Turin Tablecloth - a holy Pompey artifact (see The Victory 2). Legend has it that the face of Michael Appleton is clearly visible on April 7 every year (see The Victory 1).

The Victory 1 - The famous 2-2 draw of April 7 2012 whereby Pompey prevented Southampton from gaining promotion to the Premiership.

The Victory 2 - A ship famous for contributing chairs to the Portsmouth FC boardroom.

The News reports that there is deadline excitement with the Skates looking likely to swoop ahead of Bolton for the signing of Preston North End's striker Eoin Doyle, on loan. Yeah, I know, gripping stuff, especially as Bolton's interest is non-existent with their expected signings of strikers Chris Wood and Adam LeFondre. But then again you never know what deadline day might bring...my F5 finger is getting a blister.

You got that wrong.

 

I think it's war heroes, crying rallies and plucky chests.

Haha, I like it :D

 

Pedantry alert, but what you've got is a glossary, not a dictionary ;)

Hopefully the Real FA cup match last week has prepared them well for this cup final match.

 

They could only put three past lowly Tottenham Hotspur, how are they going to possibly cope against the mightiest sleepiest giantiest giants with their #championship standard fullback?

They'll be overawed once it gets dark and the championship standard fullback is illuminated by the championship standard floodlights. There's no coming back from that.

I really, really want to play them next season.

 

12 years and counting since we last beat them

Unfortunately that requires them to get cup progression and then it's 1/63 chance to draw them. Unlikely but would be fantastic to play them with three divisions between us.

Been so wrapped up with how crap we are that I had no idea they'd even played, let alone lost. That's cheered me up slightly.

 

So they're 2 points off falling out of the play offs and 7 points from automatic promotion.

 

From League 2. Statistically the easiest division to get promoted from!

In the past I've been bored and thought "oh yeah Pompey, wonder how they're getting on", take a look at the table and "ugh? Where the **** are they?" Then it dawns on me, I'm looking at league 1.

 

"Holy **** that's right, they are still in league 2...hahahahaha".
