It’s inevitable

We have rode our luck for a few years now but this time is up. We are going to be relegated. We have very hard games whereas the other teams all have winnable ones. A lot of our fans are saying that we are fine and “this is the blues way” but that is either trying to be optimistic or just blind stupidity. This is harder than last year or the year under Clarke. If we would have sacked Cotterill after Brentford (when he should have been) then i believe we would have beat Barnsley and maybe got a point at Forrest allowing us to be safe. It destroys me to say this but we are gone now, accept it.

Have you ever thought about what keep right on actually means??

'I truly believe that at some point during his Pompey tenure, Cotterill stated into the abyss and was met, after a time, with the gentlest of breezes and carried upon that breeze was a tiny, sweet voice, whispering "Everyone knows you're a ****". Over and over and over.' - The Secret Footballer, on Steve Cotterill.
Oh great another thread that offers nothing but a window into the bleak despair of a man losing his faith.

I don't think our games are more difficult than Bolton and Barnsley's - actually I think their's may be slightly more difficult than ours. At least we have 2 home games to Barnsley's one. We MAY go down, but aren't down yet.

You know we're not in the bottom three don't you?

The actual truth is that under Cotterill we were dead and buried.

Now Monk has come in we've got a decent chance.

Grow some balls.

How come we’ve inherited a section of bed wetters???

If we go down? So what

Personally, we ain’t going down. Sunday was a free hit, inevitable we’d lose.

The remaining games, I have every confidence in monk pep and Beattie, we will win the next 2 or draw one win one.

Can’t see Bolton or Barnsley winning another two games.

The problem with our "free hit" is that we ended it with Dean missing the next two matches through suspension - hardly a no-lose outcome. Had we come through with our back four intact, I for one would feel a lot more confident.

Not to say we won't stay up, but I can see why people aren't as confident as they were.

This basically sums up my feelings, take the Dean suspension out and I’d be feeling alright.

If i was the monkster id print off all the pessimism on here and stick it on the changing room walls. Actually bad idea they'd probably slit their wrists.

Seeing our shooting most of the season most of the players would miss

People have been saying that these other teams have winnable games for a few weeks now.

They haven't been winning them.

Barnsley were nailed on to win at Ipswich, they lost.

Bolton played us, they lost.

Then they played each other, and neither of them won.
I think Barnsley and Bolton will get beat next week. I am not sure about us but it will be another game gone.

see what happens when you stay up beyond your bed time?
Luckily, the amount of heroin I use is harmless. I inject about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example. If you're one of those, my advice to you is leave well alone. Good luck.

We are two points ahead of the drop? We have 2 home games and 1 away to a team who have nothing to play for? Probably only need 1 win! Jesus I thought I was negative....

Let me put a positive side on the worst thing that could happen.


We could have a fantastic, young team. Harding, bailey, viv, lubala and cogley.

Mix them with a few players that wont leave. jutk, koosh, grounds, davis and we might aswell have a look at greg stewart, fabbrini, tesche.

It will be an exciting time with proper football.

Only problem is it will be against feckin luton and gillingham.

Whatever the feck happens, let's keep these decent crowd numbers going, enjoy it and not be wummers
