Grant in time may have become a decent manager for us, this is the problem these days, people are not given a chance, it's just win at all costs.
Maybe he will but it's pretty doubtful don't you think?

We played better tonight on a carpet of snow than in any game since Villa.

As much as I'm a fan of Granty, the midfield seems better when he's not part of it. Thought Chrissy F and Doughty were good together tonight, albeit Walsall ultimately rolled to have their collective tummies tickled over as expected.

Grant was ultimately a disappointment, both as assistant manager and as manager. Can anyone really claim otherwise?
1-2 Blackburn, 7-1 Poshies, 7-2 Draw. 1-2? Like finding it on the floor!

Credit where credits due Doughty had a decent game. MoM? No way. Taylor by a country mile....

Just seen the highlights. How the hell they thought that was Baldwin's goal! So obviously a flick from Taylor. Not even a slight deflection, it's flicked up into the top of the net.

Surreal.
Even falling over on the way back to my car didn’t take the smile from my face.
Renewed my ST.
A Tuesday evening win. :clap:
Taylor sweeping the snow :clap: And Junior :clap:
The positivity appeared back on the terrace last night. Even the drummer was drumming.
So much to smile about.
We go again...

I watched in the warmth, it was an enjoyable game, and yes a surreal experience, especially watching Taylor and Morias sweep the pitch

well done Posh and all the Poshies that made it to the game
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Last night was fantastic. Had forgotten what it was like to actually enjoy the Posh experience.

Things had really got stagnant and bad under GM.

Thought DO let himself too, echoing the McCann-ism about how we'd been 'really close'.

We were a million miles away!

Great post nipper. I watched it on iFollow and that was good but your comments sum it up perfectly.

Took me back to the 'good 'ol Days'...........thoroughly enjoyable and the crowd was actually all alive.

Even better and amusing about Taylor from this game, and an image that I will always treasure. (a bit like the 'goal' scored by Posh where the ball definitely went through the side netting, ended up in the goal net and the ref gave the goal! Anyone remember the forwards name?)
Steven Taylor was lying flat out on his belly in our area after a sustained Walsall attack. He somehow managed to stretch out his neck muscles, tortoise like, and head a stationary ball through the snow no further than about a foot and away from danger - probably his most important header all night! Not many will have noticed it unless they were in the London Road End, as he was masked from the rest of the stadium by a host of other players. Totally summed up the man's commitment to Posh. :clap: :clap:

Tortoise like :clap2: :clap2: Hard to describe but that’s exactly what is was. Brilliant and very brave.
Altogether now 1 2 3 4 We’ve got Stephen Taylor ........
