Portsmouth (A) Tue 27th Nov, 7.45pm


#101

But you can’t point out the frailties Phil, it’s being too negative!

It’s not… it’s being realistic. We have some very very very naive players, with poor decision-making, and woeful positional sense.


#102

2-0 up and they’ve not broken a sweat.

We had about 8 chances to stop that break from OUR OWN corner, and didnt


#103

We put in a great performance against 10-men Sunderland, I didn’t mind the 2 late goals, thats how the cookie crumbles, but this is pathetic, it’s Whitey-esque, as was Burton.


#104

Charlton was easily worse than tonight.


#105

At this point, with nothing to lose, should Andy Cook be brought on to mix things up a bit?


#106

Save him for Saturday, this game is gone.

184 Saddlers, very fair play to every one of 'em. Wouldn’t bother with this trip if it was a Saturday 3pm.


#107

Wilson booked for diving.


#108

Sunderland 3 Barnsley 2 … (60 min)

Walsall yellow card, 60 minutes … Kane Wilson (diving). Nicky Devlin was booked on 55 minutes

Attendance at Fratton Park tonight 16,794

Walsall substitution, 63 minutes …

Fleetwood Town 3 Coventry City 0


#109

Connor Ronan on for Ginnelly. Was apparently at Pompey last season.


#110

I think someone will need to remind McGilivray tomorrow that he played a game tonight. He’s had absolutely nothing to do


#111

Ginnelly limped off apparently…lets hope it isn’t another bad one.I notice Fleetwood beating Coventry 3-0…makes our result there look better.


#112

Was you expecting him to totally overworked all nite Phil :see_no_evil:


#113

As things stand we are still in the top half of the table (just) … Fleetwood have taken our 11th place.


#114

Sorry I forgot, expecting anything but an abysmal defeat is being too optimistic. FFS.


#115

Cook on.


#116

Walsall’s 2nd substitution, 77 minutes … Andy Cook replaces Gordon

Portsmouth yellow card, 81 minutes


#117

WM just made interesting observation: 8 out of last 9 games Walsall conceded two or more goals. Keep on saying it but Fitzwater needs to be starting, maybe a back 3 wouldn’t be such a bad idea at this stage of the season.


#118

Oh dear … Dobson yellow card (82 min) - does that bring a red???


#119

Abysmal defeat? It doesn’t sound like that on WM…Ok we are losing to a team with more points than anyone else. With the line up we had to put out is anyone really surprised that we are losing? It doesn’t sound to me that the performance has been that bad.
One other point since Martin displaced Fitzwater we have conceded many more goals. I am not saying he is a bad player but it is clear that the defence as a whole has suffered without Fitzwater.


#120

No but out of Sunderland cup game now.
