You won't care

Cook really took his time to get his ideas over football over to pompey!
3 months in fact.
But when it did, we spanked teams home and away.
Stay with him and ride it out until it turns or slay him and get someone in who either doesn't fancy your players and wants his own or can not do it any better.
Splash the cash but you're still behind.
Pompey had cowley for the last 12 games last season, so he knew who he didn't want, wanted to keep and what new players he wanted.
He has played it brilliantly at pompey. 9 from 9 and never really looked like Co ceding so far. Beat what's in front of you
We won't stay there but he is building.
All those clichés, don't run before you can walk Etal. They ring true. Ipswich have really been a costume of somebody real, it doesn't happen overnight.its a long season, stay with him
Another one

As a pompey fan I'm never surprised I've seen it all.
Michael Jacobs must be gutted considering he agreed personal terms with Ipswich and passed a medical. (I was surprised by that mind you, ipswich may want to check their medical procedures)
Paul Cook must do what's right for his present employer and that may be cut throat but that's yhe way of yhe business.
On the other hand it has been a time wasting exercise. It doesn't look good on ipswich.
Given that, the Morrell situation is just another one of those moves by a club. If you sign him , good luck to him and you.
If does make for an interesting atmosphere in Oct for Cook and yourselves at Fritton.ill look forward to the game,certainly pompey will look to not only be vociferous but obviously put one over you.
I notice on the Morrell link that you have as many morons as us. It just makes the game extra interesting.
Good luck in the season apart from against us of course.
This is getting habitual , stop it will you ;-)

Wasn't I the squad that won at Fleetwood today after having a bid for him accepted by another club?
Could this be you?
Ipswich have been admirers recently and spending cash.

He is a good player, maybe even championship level. However, his injury record his scandalous whilst at pompey. In the team for no more than three games in a row before being out for a month or more each time.
If a bit part player is what cookie wants, he's got a good one but longevity to his appearance total stats for the season will show a real bad side

We are not all bitter

The recent spat of accusations from my club about buying the league.
Most fans, in fact probably 99% of pompey fans wish you luck in the new season with the exception of two games vs us.
That being said I remember well our win in the Premier league in the fa Cup final. Many believe we bought that too. Ludicrously I might add, we did balance our books until the unscrupulous owner saddled the club with debt whilst walking off with player sales such as the £22m sale to Real Madrid of Lasana Diarara. It was the fans of our club that were then hurt by the league. Our fall from grace to the very lowest league is well documented. The fans then bought that club and a new idea appeared. We won the league under Paul Cook and entered into league 1. We have had a continuous brush with promotion since. The fans sold the club to take us forward under the stewardship of billionaire Michael Eisner. He promised nothing but good stewardship and a model that wouldn't endanger the club what you kill to be precise. 99% of pompey fans remain behind this aspect and him.
After a pandemic year or so it goes without question things are tighter this season.
Ipswich have their own leadership and ideas. If the man at the helm provides without endangering your club then I for one am a little jealous.
I always had a soft spot for Ipswich in the 70s with the Whymark, Mills, Cooper, Beattie, Mariner squad under the legend that is Robson. That has remained over the years but certainly not when playing my home city of course.
Having appointed Cook, you already know that he likes to play possession football. It takes time to get it right as we found but he is a good manager if somewhat of a good time man! His signings at pompey were on the whole very good.ive no doubt after the Mccarthy hoofball like our jacket ball it will be much better to watch except when teams just sit for a point. He has only plan a.
On the signing of Edmundson, we'll done. You put your money where your mouth is and we just have to move on. On the potential signing of Chaplin. He is one of our own and never wanted to leave but limited game time under Cook forced Conor to move on. That seems a strange one by Cook who admitted he didn't fit into his style of play. Time will tell on that one.
So, please don't believe the few bitter pompey fans. Have a great season and see where it takes you. Pompey will come good, maybe not this season but our turn will come. We are both natural championship clubs with potential for even higher aspirations.
