    Summer Transfer Window

    Plenty of issues can crop up trying to sign a player sometimes you’ll miss out and it is what it is. But letting contracts run is absolutely unforgivable. I feel for the first time in a while we have a few cash cows letting contracts get down to one year is incredibly risky and very avoidable. We as a club can not afford to be lackadaisical like this.

    Oh for sure I’m not saying the guy is irreplaceable by any stretch of the imagination but I think he was our best defender this season. An experienced goalkeeper for communicating with the back four and a good sweeper style cb would be ideal to complement lenihans more gung ho approach. These players need to be bought quickly rather than the usual pissing about we do.

    Some harsh words towards Tosin here, I thought he was our best defender by a fairly decent margin better than Lenihan and Nyambe who are thought of quite highly (generally). He will be missed by me , he didn’t bully strikers but he didn’t need to...apart from his passing he was pretty quiet which is good for a centre back. If you have a defender constantly making these blood and thunder tackles or last ditch body on the line sort of stuff it looks good in highlights but they’re generally shite positionally which I don’t think Tosin was. Victim of looking too laid back I think. I will emphasise truly you don’t need anything better than solid at the back to get out of this division you just need a competent tactician. I am pretty sure better centre backs than Tosin would struggle here with our poor defensive tactics.

    I think we should sign downing for another year under the assumption we change the way we use him. I feel he’d be a great bench option, good ball retention if we’re leading a game also option to bring on for good set piece deliveries and crosses if we need a plan b.

    For a team like ours quality of signings is important to an extent but what’s more important for us is a quality system and set up on the pitch. You can sign whoever you like but ultimately if you can’t organise a defence or have a consistent system that does the job it won’t get you anywhere despite who you sign. It isn’t easy but there are plenty of good players out there to be found for this level of football for a low price. But until we find an identity as opposed to the confused inconsistent game we play right now it will get us no where. Individual players won’t do shit for us but a strong tactical system will. Tony Mowbray has had his moments good and bad but he’s not shown the tactical nous you need to progress on a consistent basis. So either he needs to stamp his authority and find a system that works or we need someone else that can. Until we do, whoever we sign will just be another body to fill a gap whilst we as a club meander.

    Brereton played well again and great finish from Gallagher. Big problem with Hayden today after a good debut was easy to spot, he did the simple things really well against reading today he took too long on the ball and wasn’t playing safe then he got done a few times which knocked his confidence. Manager should have told him keep it simple. Midfield shape still god awful as well. I hope Buckley plays more next season he has a real footballing brain and as a technical player is levels above most of the dross in the squad.

    Our midfield shape is really frustrating again causing more issues. There is a clear lack of direction for the three in midfield, the gap between them and the back four is massive meaning they have a good shot at running the defence every time they go forward. But they are not providing enough going forwards to justify this at all

    His appearance was brief but I can tell Vale has a bit of intelligence about his play, sweet strike aside (unlucky not to score) I feel like he picked up pockets of space really well which is usually a very good sign. I do think Buckley will end up being cream of the crop out of our youngsters, real football brain and good technique to boot.

    Decent enough first half, that carter looks an imposing lad. Showed some tidy passing at the back too.

    Millwall Away

    Awful first half. I don’t know why our midfield behaves the way it does sometimes. The three in midfield have these really strange phases during the game where they’re incredibly narrow, very close to one another and very static. Which means our attack gets piss poor support and the defence (particularly full backs) get shocking support as well. The worst thing is it seems like it’s by design. But why?

    No I hadn’t been abroad however I did take a trip to a heavily tourist town in the uk.

    Coronavirus

    Piggybacking off a couple of you guys experiences, I might be dead wrong but in November I came down with the worst illness I’ve ever had in my life I’m 25 and in good nick but this illness knocked me on my ass completely. It took me a full three months no exaggeration to start breathing full capacity again and not cough every time I did anything. Is it possible the coronavirus has been around this long? I’ve had colds and flus before but never anything like that.

    Fair enough, to be honest I’ve watched him play 5-6 times whenever Pompey been on tv and he’s always stood out to me however I know a few players stand out on tv but are inconsistent otherwise. I do feel however he’s a player that would suit the current formation as it stands inside forward type. As an aside it is absolutely staggering how much recruitment is needed this summer when you look at it on paper (if we want to progress)

    I feel they may have inflated the price because of their promotion push. Honestly though who knows what the market will be like this summer.

    Would like to see us go in for Ronan Curtis again now Pompey are definitely not getting promoted.
