Decent half 20:36 - Oct 19 with 631 viewsclive_baker

A few observations:

- Penney needs to use the ball a bit quicker. How often have his intended passes been closed down?
- Bonne. Love him, good half. Works his nuts off.
- Aluko has been very neat in possession
- Edwards decision making at times is questionable. Clearly has ability but is so raw.

Lee Evans and George Edmundson have both impressed me in this first half, as has Bonne of course.

They'd all laugh at me if they knew what I was trying to do. To create a new strain of super-wine in half-an-hour with a fraction of nature's resources and a FOOL for an assistant. 'Bernard Black, he's mad,' they'd say, 'he's insane, he's dangerous.' Well I'll show them! I'll show them all!

Agreed. Evans has looked assured in the middle and Edmundson solid.

Switching Aluko to the left and bringing Burns on for Edwards might be a change I would consider. Burgess could be handy depending on how the 2nd half plays out.

I would not call that half decent! - BUT would feel agrieved if we were drawing or losing, Pompey are terrible!

Got to sign Bonne at any cost, without him, we are a poor old team.

Toto and Donacien both look good, Toto wins everything in the air and even did a cool stand on the ball thing near the end

Unfortunately I still see edwards as a worse version of bennetts so far, just doesn't really do anything. He does a few nice step overs, but it doesn't come to anything

They’re far from terrible at this level. They’ve lost once at home this season. Last time out at Fratton Park they beat Sunderland 4-0.

I’d let edwards run at them for another 15 minutes. They’re dirty as always and there’s bookings to be had here.

Bonne has been superb again to turn the game like that. Toto looks on the edge again to me. Hope he can settle.

Not sure hoofing it out helps us. A few short throws from Walton to start attacks might work.

agree, that was not a decent half. Both teams were awful! We just have the only really decent player on the pitch in Bonne

Only problem is, we've got a keeper who doesn;t like ball at feet, 2 cb's who don't like ball at feet, it's only really gonna go one way really passing wise

I can see the comparison, although I think Edwards has more ability than Bennetts ever demonstrated. He’s like a street footballer who has all the flicks and tricks but perhaps lacks a little positional discipline and decision making at times, but he’s young and that’s inevitable perhaps. That ball inside a couple of minutes before half time for example, so poor. Needs to do his paying in the final 3rd.

Edwards just pinged a pass to Chaplin that Bennetts couldn't play in his dreams. You're miles off on this one but that's little surprise.

Aluko could be the kind of guy we need, a bit of a head scratcher for most when we signed him, even derided by some but he clearly has experience and some quality. He might not be as exciting as some, but we need some solidity and people capable of 7/10 every week.

No idea when I began here, was a very long time ago. Previously known as Spirit_of_81. Love cheese, hate the colour of it, this is why it requires some blue in it.
