Wobblers have just sacked Hasselbaink. We only won today coz of LDSL if you read the Chairman’s comments on Twitter. Blinkered to the point of obsession me thinks as he was as average as always today. Not sure now is the time for Uncle Stevie to be experimenting with players out of position like Ward today, Junior or Lloyd could easily play that role.

Could & should have won by more but the Wobblers did have a few good chances and hit the post in the 2nd half.
ldsl had a good game imo
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Even if he had an absolute stormer, some will never admit that the boy had played well. It's a bit like bristle and his dislike of Marcus, they can never admit that they were wrong in their summation of a player's performance. Hey ho - I reckon that Baldwin had a great game yesterday and will flourish under Steve Evans. He is a very good header of the ball, is brave and will always be willing to put his body on the line. Evans never encourages his defensive players to play the ball on the deck. Well done Jack. Our captain has found his niche!

Nice to see you finally on board the Jack Baldwin bus Ashman...

He'll always be suspect to an error because of his lapses in concentration but I agree that he'll be better under Evans...Who, unlike our previous manager...doesn't over complicate things.

Who'd have thought we'd all be singing captain Calamity's praises. I've always felt he guarantees a goal a game for the opposition! None yesterday and he scored. Like SP says maybe Evans more simplistic approach will reap rewards with Jack

According to some over complicating things is what is needed for us. After Evans is fat and doesn't need any midfielders :roll:

Ha Ha...and here's a thought for those that don't think the midfield needs ripping up in the summer....

"Calamity Jack"...As Ashman used to call him...Has scored TWICE as many goals as our midfield has managed between them ALL season.

And he certainly was a 'Calamity Jack' and I was not the only one to say so. It doesn't make your opinions about him any more relevant than mine and those others.
Evans will rip up the whole team I reckon, let alone the midfield. It's what he does; sell off any club assets, bring in his and Raynor's preferred players at any cost, leave a huge debt and then leave when the next best job crops up! (Celtic maybe?)
I foresee a few scraps between him, DMac and the Canadian connection during pre-season and a final meltdown ala the Gary Johnson reign. I can see DMac seeing through what Evans wants.

You seem to live in a parallel universe ashman. None of the above will happen in our one.

I don't buy all this nonsense posted about Evans. I can't see him ever getting the Celtic job. He'll use his own players but anyone thinking he'll leave the club with huge debts to finance "his" players clearly doesn't give a great deal of respect to Darragh. He'll not to that to posh in a million years. I suspect a lot if this guff comes from the fact that they'd prefer someone else in charge. Time to get on the train and accept it

Just the sort of typically biased, ill-conceived rhetoric we're getting used to seeing from those who've already decided what they think about Stevey E.

DMac micro manages everything to do with this club, not least when it comes to transfers in and out. He'll have his usual list of players he wants because of their numbers (he gets too hooked up on this, see George Cooper for details) and SE will have to justify any players he wants to bring in.

Ashman seems to be suggesting that Evans will hand over a shopping list and be allowed to do what he wants. Dream on!

Must be nice to have such detailed information as to what goes on behind closed doors!

It's not hard for anyone with more than half a dizen brain cells to pull together all the available information and reach certain conclusions.

As we know, of course, you rarely stray far aaway from your specialist subject though.
