Looks like they will finally be starting their journey towards domination of world football, just as soon as they appoint some bloke who was recently sacked to replace their bloke who was recently sacked :mcinnes:

To be fair, that's the case with most managerial appointments.

Anybody think Eddie Howe might be tempted?  

Not even a little bit.

Though a lot of the Blue Few seem to think it will be a tight call between Howe and Wilder 😂

Sol Campbell please and another 2 years of entertainment from them. 
 

They’d be a good fit for each other. A deluded club with a deluded bloke in charge of them. Fantastic stuff.

Which was one of the points I was making.

Football seems to be the only industry where a crap manager can be sacked one day and start a new job the next!  I guess the saying 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' has never been so pertinent.

Going to Birmingham by all accounts. 

His agent has been seen at their training ground or something.

Maybe Pompey will get Karanka. Would be good because he plays dull football and we can easily make up a song which rhymes with his name.

Another defeat and down to 10th. They’re all posting German flags on Twitter, they’re putting all their faith in some German manager 🤷🏻‍♂️

By their logic,   I expect he is an ex Tank driving Nazi , or whatever it was.

Apparently it's the guy who got Barnsley promoted while getting slapped by Joey Barton. He then got sacked, ended up at Hearts, got them relegated and was sacked again.

Here's an article of one sentence paragraphs by our favourite skate journo if anyone can hack scrolling through GCSE standard writing and a load of unrelated ads and pictures.

3 management jobs where he’s only lasted a year in each of them. Sacked from two, was let go from his 3rd a month before they were relegated. Also got a kicking in the tunnel off Joey Barton. He sounds perfect.

You are being unfair on GCSE standards going by past evidence of, I presume, Factless. I don't need or couldn't face reading any more, thanks.

Why sack Jackett if:

1. No replacement is lined up to take over?

2. You are not even sure if you want to appoint a 13 match temporary manager ir a more permanent replacement?

In fairness he looks like quite a good appointment if you want to replicate what he achieved at Barnsley, promotion from L1.

But for a reasonable young coach he'd be mental just to take a 13 match contract with no security beyond.

One could think they are just floating an exciting name they can't afford to give the fans a bit of the "well, we tried" routine before they appoint Guy Whittingham again.

This surprises me. I heard him on the BBC 72+ podcast and he said that he'd had offers, but was waiting for the 'right' opportunity, stressing the need for the right club and owner. God knows why he thought they're the right club given the state they are in, or maybe the offers had started to dry up?! Did a very good job at Lincoln, but was out of his depth at Huddersfield - although they were in a basket case situation, admittedly.

According to "reliable journalist Alex Crook"... Pardew, the former scummer with an impressive JPT record is being eyed to help ensure they regain their title next season.

Also has a history of finishing just outside of the playoffs on League One.

Used to quite like Danny Cowley, that’s a shame. Skate bastard 🤣

Same. Expect he’ll do pretty well there to be honest, seems a sensible fit for both which is a shame.

They did extremely well at Lincoln. Played a lot of direct balls  but they had a decent target man and it worked a treat. I wonder if Marquis would work in that kind of role. Let's fucking hope not.

Paul Cook remembers his time at the club fondly:

"There’s no way I’d ever return to Portsmouth, though. I’ve done that trip."

"I certainly won’t be returning to Portsmouth at any given time"

To be fair, once you leave that festering toilet you would never want to go back, would you ?

Always, you’re obsessed pal. 

If you actually had the intelligence to read and understand people’s comments, you’d see that I said their owner is better than ours, not that they’re a better team or club.

As long as we all can agree our fans our better than theirs, I would rather smell of ponies than fish.

Apparently today is ‘David Norris Day’ in Pikeymouth, it marks the day that we gained a vital point towards automatic promotion to where we belong while they dropped two points which helped ensure that they returned to where they belong.....weird lot aren’t they?
