Pre-Match Thoughts - Mike



No Quick Fix.........


For those of us who thought following the Plymouth game that things were on the up and the play off's were all but a certainty Tuesday night's comprehensive defeat at Fleetwood Town will have been a start reminder that this is going to be anything but a quick fix for Paul Cook and co. His comments after the match while calm and clever were also very damning in his assessment of what he had witnessed, telling the world that players need to take more responsibility and to carry more weight on their shoulders is saying it just wasn't good enough and not what he is willing to accept while manager of Ipswich Town and that for me is exactly what I want to hear, for too long now we have all pointed our fingers at different managers and the owner and rightly so but it irks me at just how much players "get away with it" when things go wrong.

The game was really over as soon as they scored the opening goal, once again we contrived to let one in very early and again we gave ourselves a mountain to climb, scoring One is hard enough but to hope for two to win the game was foolish and ever a probability, for a start you need to be creating chances, then you need to be getting some on target and we did neither of those things until very late in the game by which time we were Two down and looking well beaten. I think it is fair to say not One single player came out of the game with very much credit at all which speaks volumes about the magnitude of the task that faces Paul Cook.

Already we are having discussions about cook having a Plan B and maybe switching his tactics and formation but we have to be realistic and accept he has been here Two weeks, I don't think it is realistic to expect much, if any, change in that short space of time, mind you the longer it goes on I do think he will really start to stamp his authority on proceedings and take a few chances with mixing things up, I think it is hard to do that when we have just somehow clawed our way back into the top Six, if he were to change it and lose we would probably all be saying why the hell did he change something that was kind of working.

The big concern for me was the apparent lack of passion in the performance of most of the boys in Blue, it was as if some really couldn't be bothered and while I am sure that is not the case it hardly augers well for a play off push, I would imagine there was some stern words exchanged in the dressing room after the game, players will have been left in no doubt that it just wasn't good enough and if these said players are playing for their futures I think it is fair to say some are nearing the end of their time at Portman Road which is fine by me, I made the point on Tuesday evening that I would not be concerned if anyone in our squad was to move on, I don't think I have ever felt like that before.

As April approaches and that run of games that really does look enticing in respect of victories we first have to get past Portsmouth at their place and while they are in a torrid run of form and are fast sliding down the table it will still be a real test for a Town side who are as up and down as you can get. Anything from this game would be welcome and would keep us on the fringes of the top Six while at the same time it would keep Pompey below us and still in the midst of a bad run. I think most feel having James Norwood back would be a plus and while there are no court appearances to worry about here he is still having these back spasms so it remains to be seen if James is available or not. If he makes it I think we could be good for a point but if the main man is missing then unfortunately I fail to see our limp attack causing them too many problems and another disappointing day looms, defeat would not be a total disaster but it would make the task in hand even more difficult than it already is. Keep the faith, all is not lost, April looks a doddle remember. COYB'S.




The Opposition – Portsmouth FC



Image



The club was founded in 1898, with a blue plaque on the wall of 12 High Street Portsmouth commemorating its formation on 5 April. The club joined the Southern League in 1899. That first season was successful, with the club winning 20 out of 28 league matches, earning them the runner-up spot in the league. They suffered their first relegation in 1910–11 but the team was promoted again the following season.

League football was suspended during the First World War, but following the resumption of matches Portsmouth won the Southern League for the second time. Continuing success saw them in the Third Division for the 1920–21 season, going on to win the league in the 1923–24 season. The club continued to perform well in the Second Division, winning promotion by finishing second in the 1926–27 season.

Portsmouth's debut season in the First Division was a struggle. However, they reached the FA Cup final for the first time, losing to Bolton Wanderers. Portsmouth managed to survive relegation, and their fortunes began to change. The 1933–34 season saw Portsmouth again reach the FA Cup final, which they lost to Manchester City.

Having established themselves in the top flight, Portsmouth reached the 1939 FA Cup final, which they won against Wolves. League football was again suspended due to the Second World War, meaning Portsmouth hold the unusual distinction of holding the FA Cup for the longest uninterrupted period, as the trophy wasn't contested again until the 1945–46 season.

League football resumed for the 1946–47 campaign after five years and Portsmouth continued in the First Division. In their "Golden Jubilee" season of 1948–49, they claimed the league title for the first time. The club powered their way to the title the following year, on the last day of the season, and are thus one of only five English teams to have won back-to-back titles since the Second World War.

Subsequent seasons saw Portsmouth struggle and they were relegated to the Second Division in 1959. Portsmouth went down to the Third Division in 1961 (the first former English League champions to do so) but were promoted back to the Second Division at the first attempt. Despite limited financial means, Portsmouth retained Second Division status throughout the sixties.

The cash injection that accompanied the arrival of John Deacon as chairman in 1972 failed to improve Portsmouth's league position. With Deacon unable to continue bankrolling the club on the same scale, Portsmouth were relegated to the Third Division in 1976.

In November 1976, the club found itself needing to raise £25,000 to pay off debts and so avoid bankruptcy. With players having to be sold to ease the club's financial situation, and no money available for replacements, Portsmouth were consequently relegated to the Fourth Division in 1978.

Portsmouth were promoted back to Division Three in 1980, and in the 1982–83 season they won the Third Division championship, gaining promotion back to the Second Division. Under Alan Ball's management, Portsmouth narrowly missed out on winning promotion to the First Division twice before finally succeeding in 1986–87. Unfortunately, by the middle of the 1987–88 season the club was again in grave financial trouble, and Portsmouth were relegated straight back to the Second Division.

Portsmouth's centenary season, 1998–99, saw a serious financial crisis hit the club, and in December 1998 Portsmouth went into financial administration. Milan Mandarić saved the club with a takeover deal in May 1999, and the new chairman immediately started investing.

Harry Redknapp took over as manager in early 2002. Redknapp was able to make the most of Mandarić's willingness to invest in players at a time when competitors were struggling after the collapse of ITV Digital's television deal with the Football League. Just over a year later, Portsmouth were celebrating winning the Division One Championship and promotion to the Premier League, winning the title with a game to spare.

The club finished 13th, 16th and 17th in their first three Premier League seasons. Redknapp had resigned midway through the club's second Premier League season, after a disagreement with Mandarić, and went on to manage bitter rivals Southampton, only to return just over a year later. In January 2006, Portsmouth were bought by businessman Alexandre Gaydamak, whose funding allowed the club to buy practically a whole new squad mid-season. With large amounts of money available for the manager to make record signings, the club finished the 2006–07 season in the top half of the table for the first time, only one point short of European qualification.

The 2007–08 season saw Portsmouth finish eighth in the Premier League and reach the FA Cup final, which they won against Cardiff. The win earned them a place in the 2008–09 UEFA Cup, the club's first experience of European football.

On 25 October 2008, Redknapp left Portsmouth for a second time, with the club ultimately finishing the 2008–09 Premier League season in 14th place. On 26 May, Portsmouth accepted a bid from United Arab Emirates businessman Sulaiman Al Fahim to buy the club. However, due to financial problems and an ownership battle, the club was eventually purchased by Ali al-Faraj, who took over control. On 5 October, a deal was agreed for Al Faraj and his associates, via BVI-registered company Falcondrone, to hold a 90% majority holding, with Al-Fahim retaining a 10% stake and the title of non-executive chairman for two years. Falcondrone also agreed a deal with Gaydamak to buy, for £1, Miland Development (2004) Ltd, which owns various strategic pockets of land around the ground, once refinancing was complete. Two days after the Al-Faraj takeover was completed, Portsmouth's former Technical Director Avram Grant returned as Director of Football. However, because of the financial problems, the Premier League placed the club under a transfer embargo, meaning the club were not allowed to sign any players.

Avram Grant took over at Portsmouth on 26 November 2009, replacing former manager Paul Hart, who had been sacked by the board two days previously, due to the club's position at the bottom of the league.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) filed a winding-up petition against Portsmouth at the High Court in London on 23 December 2009. In March 2010, this winding-up petition was dropped, leaving Portsmouth with a nine-point penalty for entering administration. During the 2009–10 season, it had become apparent to the club's new owner Balram Chainrai that Portsmouth were approximately £135 million in debt so, to protect them from liquidation, Chainrai placed the club into administration on 26 February 2010. This automatically incurred a nine-point penalty from the FA Premier League, which came into effect on 17 March and consigned the team to almost certain relegation, which was mathematically confirmed on 10 April.

On 9 April, it was announced David Lampitt would be joining Portsmouth as their new CEO after he had worked a period of notice at the FA, his employer at the time. In May, Avram Grant resigned as Portsmouth manager. On 17 June, the club's creditors voted for a Company Voluntary Arrangement, with an 81.3% majority; Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Paul Hart and the agent of Portsmouth midfielder Tommy Smith were the only ones to reject it. On 17 August, Balram Chainrai completed his takeover of the club and passed the owners and directors’ fit and proper person test.

Former Notts County manager Steve Cotterill was appointed manager of the club in June 2010 on a three-year contract. Portsmouth finished the season with an eight-game winless run and ended up 16th with 58 points.

On 1 June 2011, Convers Sports Initiatives, owned by Russian Vladimir Antonov, completed its takeover of the club.

On 23 November 2011, a Europe-wide arrest warrant was issued for Portsmouth owner Antonov by Lithuanian prosecutors as part of an investigation into alleged asset stripping at Lithuanian bank Bankas Snoras, which is 68% owned by Antonov and had gone into temporary administration the previous week. On 29 November 2011, Antonov resigned as chairman of Portsmouth after parent company Convers Sports Initiatives entered administration. On 17 February, Portsmouth went into administration for the second time in two years, bringing them an automatic 10-point deduction. On 21 April, Portsmouth were relegated from the Championship, condemning them to League One – the first time in 30 years that the club had played at that level.

Following Pompey's relegation, the entire professional playing squad left the club.

On 9 November 2012, Chanrai halted his attempt to buy the club. Six days later, the Pompey Supporters’ Trust signed a conditional agreement with PFK to buy the club. Portsmouth were unable to find a manager on a long-term basis due to their financial state. The club went on a record winless run, playing their 20th game without a win in February 2013. The winless streak lasted a total of 23 matches, finally ending on 2 March 2013 as Portsmouth won away at Crewe Alexandra. On 10 April 2013, a deal with administrators was reached, although the Pompey Supporters' Trust had not yet finalised the purchase. Portsmouth were relegated to League Two at the end of the season.

On 19 April 2013, Portsmouth exited administration when the Pompey Supporters’ Trust’s deal to buy the club was completed.

On a historic announcement, on Monday 29 September 2014, the club was able to declare itself debt-free after paying back all creditors and all legacy payments to ex-players. The news came 18 months after the PST took control of the club.

Paul Cook led Portsmouth to an EFL League Two play-off spot in the 2015–16 season but lost to Plymouth Argyle in the semi-final.

In the 2016–17 EFL League Two season, Paul Cook's side secured promotion to League One and were crowned champions of League Two.

Paul Cook resigned on 31 May 2017 to join Wigan Athletic. Kenny Jackett was appointed the new manager on Friday 2 June 2017. In May the Pompey Supporters' Trust (PST) voted in favour of a proposed bid by The Tornante Company, headed by former Disney chief executive Michael Eisner, to take over the club which was completed on 3 August 2017.

On 15 March 2018, Portsmouth revealed a newly redesigned club crest, featuring a new nautical compass star and an "1898" date, added for the founding year of the football club. The new crest was introduced for the new 2018–19 season.

Portsmouth remained undefeated in the 2018–19 EFL League One campaign for eleven consecutive league matches and topped the League One table. On Sunday 31 March 2019, Portsmouth met Sunderland in the 2019 EFL Trophy Final and won the cup with by a penalty shootout.

Portsmouth's qualified for the League One play-offs which they lost to Sunderland at the semi-final stage at the conclusion of the 2018/19 season.

On Tuesday 9 June 2020, the football clubs of EFL League One (and EFL League Two) voted to end the season early on a points-per-game calculation, which resulted with Coventry City as League One champions and Rotherham United as League One runners-up. Portsmouth were awarded a fifth place finish to earn one of the four promotion play-off places for the EFL Championship, and were matched with Oxford United in a two-legged semi-final behind closed doors. After two legs a penalty shoot-out was needed to settle the 2-2 aggregate tie, which Oxford United won 5–4.

After multiple consecutive losses and with only one win in seven games, manager Kenny Jackett was sacked on 14 March 2021, ending his almost 4 year tenure with the club. Jackett left Portsmouth in 7th place in the league, despite being top at Christmas, one place below the play-off positions.

Their form at the moment is horrible and their confidence has to be non existent. As bad as we were in our last game, I have to think we will win this one and get back in the mix. Let's see Cook's influence finally bear some fruit. Believe.

Speaks volumes for me that to date 6 out of 9 have predicted a home win.

I was one of those 6 - I know Portsmouth are in terrible form but given their new manager and the fact that we still don't look like scoring I cannot see any other outcome.

Now come on Mike be fair. Apparently KVY is supposed to back in the squad tomorrow so expect to hear on Monday morning that he has injured himself getting on the coach to Pompey. :wink:

Wow....KVY in the squad - where did that come from?

Interesting to hear his thoughts about the full-back position and on Chambers at right-back.

‘but I want two full-backs who bomb forward, give you great energy and crosses and offer much more of an attacking threat on both sides.

“Luke Chambers has gone to right-back. Luke Chambers has been an outstanding centre-half at our club and he’s gone there to help us out. He’s done that admirably but going forward we must have left and right backs who can penetrate.”


Doesn’t sound like he’s that thrilled by Chambers as a RB. He’s not slating Chambers, but bringing to attention that Chambers is a CB playing as a RB. And it’s true - massive squad, but still too many square pegs, round holes. It’s good to see a manager be forthright in what he wants.

You have to ask the question why KVY is now suddenly fit enough to be in the squad AND even make the bench, considering we’ve constantly been told he’s not available for various injuries over the last ( almost) 2 years.....as you say tang...where’s that suddenly come from??

And all of a sudden Jackson is hinting at staying at the club.... maybe the Club might decide to cash in?🤷‍♀️

They've lost 4 of their last 5 but this is an opposition we just don't beat. Usually take victories from us at Portman Road but this is a terrible team to face off with in hopes of obtaining points or a win. They nearly always beat us some things just can't be done.

That said you got to assess the situation and remain upbeat in that the whole f**king promotion issue seems well within our grasp but the team makes such hard work of it. Recall years back around this time of season we needed a win to stay within the top six (then second league) set-up and went there and won with a late Alex Mathie goal, showed character and motivation to win it although in vain as we didn't make the play-offs at the end of season. Go with same score this time around, we got to try for better and with enough desire and focus would hope for once, victory over these.

Surely Cook will have barked some motivation into the squad after that p*ss poor performance against Fleetwood?? I anticipate Norwood returning which should at least give us the chance to score 'ONE' goal. Any sane person would expect to see changes in the midfield, but Cook has already stated he doesn't like to chop and change the lineups. Maybe this will be an exception?

The thing is the lads are capable of some good football at times,just not consistent,bit more confidence & a rocket up the arse to motivate them might make the playoffs, as this is an early kick off guess it's on sky.

With Pompey only having won just one of their last 7 games at Fratton Park surely their confidence will be rock bottom giving us a great opportunity to come away with at least a point maybe all three. In all four defeats they’ve lost to Nil so our defences performance will be key, their only win was against lowly Swindon Town so we have every good reason to feel confident. Let’s just hope we can keep a clean sheet. At least they don’t have that arsehole David Nugent playing anymore, what a thorn in the side he was to us over the years.
