We need to score lots of goals but still lose the match. I’ve spent my life understanding the game completely wrong.
Me too...

Apparently...It's all about whether the manager is a 'perfect gentleman' or not.

Me three.

Apparently it's about hooking up with old friends from the friends, drinking beer and talking about how much better things was/were when Denis Emery was/were in the team.

I hate to use it as an example but John Beck at the Shabby is potentially worthy of comparison. Not in terms of style of play but in success....

He used tactics and set out his side to be successful. It wasn't pretty probably not achievable in the current game but look where he took the Scum to...

I guess if you honestly asked their "fans" would they prefer the success they had in the 80s/90s versus their recent experience floundering in L2 and out of the football league altogether? Easy one for me

Say what you like, McCann is not a manager, he is an onlooker. If he is deemed a manager by those who MATTER and NOT hero worshippers, sit back and see where he goes to.

You still haven't answered the question that two people have now asked you. Were you one of the 175. Nobody has suggested we should lose every game. All people are saying is we didn't play well, all you have done is diss people who have paid their money to get behind the team.

tooposhforwords.
imo your opinion of if you don't like it don't go was ridiculous regardless of the age of who it was aimed at and was a cheap shot. Sadly our gates would have been even lower these past few months had many listened to that viewpoint.

Brian and Ashman were right, it was a poor performance. However they were imo wrong to say it was the worst display all season and chose to forget the couple of chances JM made for himself first half as well as some stubborn defending all over the pitch. Bond was excellent also.
That side managed to win after the one bit of quality seen from either side all match, that would almost certainly not have happened pre Evans.

Both those gentlemen have misgivings about the new manager as do a lot of POSH, both are also honest enough to admit that their views are there to be changed. The 90 minutes on Tuesday were not enough to change their views but 10 seconds of class dulled the anger of 173 of those present in the away end just not those two.

Those disrespecting Grant just to score a point over those daring to criticise Evans are equally pathetic. Fact is only time will tell if the new managership team will be successfull and in the short term we may well not see proof either way of how they want us to play.
The Rotherham side that came down to LR the other year were outstanding so it is clear that Messrs Evans and Raynor are not one dimensional style wise. That side was strong, physical but very skilful, this squad probably has more skill than a ot but may not yet be able to outstrengthen the opposition very often.

I think no more needs to be said about style etc.

I will appraise my comment, I made in other threads

'' This was the worst performance I have seen Posh play and WIN, great we won, onwards and probably upwards

I have more faith in Steve Evan's than I ever had in Grant McCann
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Four embarrassing and shocking performances I've witnessed this season under Grant...and all defeats.
Says it all. :D :shock:
Arguably, one could add the away games at MK Dons and Oldham, and the home games against Bradford City and Tranmere, to the list of occasions on which the team seemed either unprepared or unwilling to compete meaningfully throughout the game. Throw in the home defeat to Barnet as well, for bad measure. Review last season, and one could probably come up with a comparable list.

After the Wimbledon game I just thought enough was enough... The team was flat and the crowd certainly was.

I was with 3 others that day....and we all felt the same.

A change was needed and it came...Those that didn't want change are in the minority and in time they'll realise that the right call was made..

Unless they're happy with mediocracy.

Yeah maybe we should've got John Beck instead of Evans.
