Players that have grabbed their opportunity so far with both hands....
at 10:37 20 Oct 2021

Without putting a downer on things I don't expect to see regular assists from JD. Last night wasn't the norm in terms of his attacking output. Pompey were terrible.

If KVY can't force his way in and find some form I can see a new right back being targeted come January.

The current favourite is working out how many points per game over the remainder of the season are required for X place in the table, based on previous seasons.

Because that's fun apparently.

The reaction to Aluko's signing was a disgrace in my opinion. Bizarre lack of respect for a good championship player for a number of years.

Noticed that. I don't think that's normal for him but he looks like he's playing in slow motion.

Not sure how to take that half
at 20:48 19 Oct 2021

We've had bits of tidy possession but not done enough with it, and I worry when they go forward. Neither team have played very well I don't think.

Is Edwards playing?

Space down the right but JD all on his own and no ability to find a cross or beat his man.

Which ex manager would you pick

Depends what you define as a big game but Cook arguably hasn't presided over any yet, so hard to say.

So Jewell. Won games when he first came in and beat West Ham home and away.

Not drawn a blank all season and scored 2 goals 7 times. 2-0 seems a bit pessimistic, no?

Unless I'm mistaken Aluko has scored more than Burns, but I get your point. You can't argue with Burns playing, but dropping Aluko goes completely against the 'keep your shirt' culture.

It's our first 'big' game, bar maybe Sheffield Wednesday, so it'll be interesting and possibly an indicator of how the season might go. Our season will be defined by how we get on against the big boys.

Wouldn't be against getting Pigott in there, Bonne wasn't really in the game on Saturday. One up front makes more sense at home, less so away.

Chaplin has to play and I think Aluko too actually. You can't drop someone who's just scored two goals. Even aside from Cambridge, his cameos this season haven't been bad at all (discounting Newport when he probably shouldn't have played).

Something like;

Hladky
Donacien Edmundson Burgess Penney/Coulson
El Mizouni Morsy
Chaplin Pigott Celina/Fraser
Bonne

I don't see why Evans should come straight back in for El Mizouni, having struggled in a lot of away games so far this year.

This is where football on social media and the media in general has got so depressing. You have to nail your colours to the mast or no one will listen to you. Having a balanced view is effectively frowned upon.

Watching pundits on TV or listening on radio now is embarrassing. It's just constant "I've always said this" or "I never said that, find me proof I said that". What's everyone's obsession with being right all the time?

Cook seemed very downbeat in his club interview...
at 12:14 18 Oct 2021

It's funny, managers always seemed to be compared to the person they replaced when it comes to interviews carried out during bad runs of form or bad results. You never see it mentioned when things are going well.

Genuine question...
at 10:40 18 Oct 2021

I don't think Burgess has as big a mistake in his locker as Toto does, albeit Toto hasn't made one for a long time now, and he's more dominant than Woolfenden, so on the whole Burgess is an upgrade. Sadly though he got drawn into a physical battle on Saturday and ultimately lost.

On the ball clearly Woolfenden is better than both. I wouldn't mind him coming in for Edmundson.

Saturday would have suited Toto, but you can't just rotate your CBs game to game, can you?

Dear TWTD - keep calm and give Cook November and stop talking about Mick!
at 23:35 17 Oct 2021

This doesn't make a lot of sense.

Hurst's 'struggles' were being unable to point points on the board and being bottom of the table. Our current ones are not being in the play offs or higher.

They're not the same.

The first half performance was basically perfect I thought. We caused them problems through a mix of what you mentioned, possession and directness.

And you're right, second half we looked so comfortable for a good portion of it. Then the subs came. After that we had pretty much no possession in their half.

Morsy is not as positive as he could be with the ball. El Mizouni I felt showed him up somewhat in this respect yesterday. He either takes too long choosing what to do with it or doesn't take on the risky forward pass that's needed. Of course he's got good traits and he has a great ability to skip away from players when in a tight spot - I'd just like to see him do it more and be more positive when looking for a pass.
