On the assumption that we lose to Charlton and..... 10:16 - Dec 2 with 3769 viewsBloots

...Wigan, will that be the point at which we pull the trigger on him?

We'll probably be 10+ points off the play offs and in the bottom half of the league.

If we add in the inevitable poor performance against Barrow and I reckon that could be it.

Can he survive that scenario?

We beat Shrewsbury 2-1 at home, that was pretty glorious.


To be fair, we had some sustained spells of pressure against Oxford at home too. Absolute scenes.

Destroy the foundations of what we’re building to put a temporary solution in place but then destroy that again to start another plan…

That must sound like a really good strategy to any one not involved in shaping strategy, I’m sure.


We're now going to be able to do any kind of long term build being mired in the third division.

We need out of this division. We stay down we're going to need to replace a fair few players who'll leave because they have the offer of football higher up the league or who've returned to the parent clubs.

Plus, we'll have to replace anyone who Cookies decides to blame for his failures and subsequently bomb out as well.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.

I love it when people imply that fans of mid table league one team ITFC are glory hunters.


I haven’t implied that in the slightest. Makin has literally in black and white stated he would start supporting again once it’s going well. If that isn’t the definition of glory hunting, I don’t know what is.

Every single 'messiah'(Keane, Hurst, Lamber and now Cook) we've had in the past 10 years has been woeful.

We could do with another Honest Mick to steady things up o short term gig with a big payoff for doing so, take us up then make way for someone a bit more progressive
[Post edited 2 Dec 2021 17:53]


.. you lambast me for using the word technical (read progressive (the term you use), read modern)

But really: "We could do with another Honest Mick to steady things up"... that is ridiculous, two years treading water and not improving the fundamentals of how we play as a team.. and then try and get the manager we've need since Jim Magilton?

Oh and are you confirming that Mick should never have been more than a stop gap?

Must do better

I support the club. The club deserves better than losing to arsenal 21s. And struggling to beat the likes of crewe and Oldham etc.

But fair play if it gives you enjoyment. Not anyone else to tell you how to feel

Momentum Flash.

We had a torrid November really. The team came away with boos when beating crewe!.

What we needed and PC backed it up by saying we needed momentum going into this month and we started off with letting a 2 goal lead go again with a team that was full of players who all should be banging on the door to play at Charlton..

I know what happened fella, and it's a bit disappointing. When people talk about being embarrassed I just don't get it. I'm sure the Arsenal youngsters are very good - I don't see how it's such a disaster to draw with them when we've changed our entire team. And if we do change our entire team, I don't quite understand how that translates to momentum. How does the first team gain momentum from it if they didn't play?

If it was our u23s id agree.


But there were plenty of players involved Tuesday who could be involved in the next games so of course you want them full of confidence no? That's why momentum is key.

Penney
Edwards
Burgess
Caroll
Etc

All could be selected for sat or Tues. Depending on injuries. So of course you want them full of confidence.

Hladky.. he could be our no.1 if Walton pulls up.. etc

So no it's not just a buzz word it's important. Momentum also important when it comes to fans whether you personally agree with it or not, a loss is a loss.

How do you know. Apart from Jackson everyone of them has started a first team league game have they not. And many of them have more than 1 apparence.

It included our first choice left back
Our only rb cover
Our dcm cover
Our gk cover
A LW who's been involved in a large majority of games
A striker who is back up to current striker.

We could see 5 of Tuesdays team in the first team easily on Tuesday if required.

You're desperately trying to twist the facts, but let's be honest here. You even described most of them yourself as "cover". That very terms says they're reserves.

Penney - might start but has been very out of favour recently and certainly not first choice.
Edwards - Mostly a sub and likely to stay that way.
Burgess - Not been a starter for a long time. Out of the picture if you're honest.
Caroll - Even less involvement and less likely to start than Burgess.
Hladky - nowhere near starting other than an unlikely injury.

There is no way any of these playing v Arsenal was intended to build winning momentum.

They aren't reserves there are members of the first team squad and players who would play for other league 1 sides

Our reserves are the u23s.


You don't know what injuries may happen or have already happened to say none of them will play.

I said "mostly" a sub, which is correct.

No I don't know what injuries may happen, but neither do you. The fact that they haven't happened yet and you're talking about something that MIGHT happen in the future, bolsters my argument not yours.

They are reserves. You described them as "cover". That amounts to the same thing! Whether they'd play for other League 1 sides or not is irrelevant - an entirely changed first 11 does nothing for the first 11 in terms of momentum.

It doesn't bolster your argument.

You want the players full of confidence if called upon. Having a grumpy striker like Pigott for example isn't going to help.. now we've less games to offer players not getting league games. So absolutely momentum and winning these games is key when things are not going well.

You can be pedantic about reserves/cover etc. But we didn't sign any of those players as 'reserves'

On Edwards. Hasn't he started 12 of the 15 games he's been available?

I give up. "If called upon". Even if a win against Arsenal's U21s does boost a player's confidence, how does that provide MOMENTUM for the next league game for the entire team, even if he DOES play (which is far from a given)?

Momentum works if the entire team that plays (and beats) Arsenal plays in the following league games. If, say, Pigott scores against Arsenal and gets confidence from it, then in a month's time replaces the injured Bonne, where on earth is there any gain from momentum?

Also, there's nothing pedantic about whether you call them cover or reserves. It amounts to the same thing. They aren't starting. And saying "we didn't sign any of those players as 'reserves'" is irrelevant as well. All that matters in this debate is are they starting the next league game and thus taking confidence into it? Very few, if any, will be. So there's no momentum for the team.
