|Town without Bishop and Edwards|
at 09:48 22 Jan 2021
Prior to Saturday, they had last both been fit and in the team at Sunderland on 3rd November. At that point they had 9 of our 17 league goals between them and the lions share of our assists.
Our record while they were out - P10 W3 D1 L6
You don't have to be a genius to see why we've signed Thomas and Harrop, but it was as plain as the nose on the end of my face earlier in the season that we would struggle badly if Bishop and Edwards couldn't stay fit and firing, so these signings smack of trying to paper over the cracks to me.
Why Lamberk can't see that this system simply doesn't work at this level and with the players at his disposal, is beyond me. But yeah, Marcus Evans football genius told him it's how we have to play?

and if Plymouth hadn't fallen apart and gifted us a way back into the game, we'd be second bottom and only just above them on goal difference.
That is the size of the problem folks. We're barely on course to finish mid table.
|The atmosphere today and feeling towards Lambert|
at 19:32 12 Dec 2020
Not sure how it came across on ifollow, so thought I'd stick a post up. It was a very odd experience today. First off, it felt pretty emotional to be back at Portman Road after a very difficult 9 months.
Given there was 2k max in the stadium spread across two stands, with vocal fans diluted amongst happy clappers, there was plenty of applause, singing and general positivity from the crowd. Until we kicked off that is, and it rapidly became apparent Portsmouth were far far better than us.
Lots of patience from the crowd overall, mild booing at half time, but then frustration second half giving way to plenty of shouts and general stick aimed in Lambert's direction. Lots of angry voices at full time up in the (I assume) usually placid co-op stand, plenty of shouts of Lambert out. Sounded like pelters from the Alf Ramsey stand as Lambert went down the tunnel.
If today is any kind of yardstick, I think a full north stand would be utterly toxic towards Lambert by now.

As much as I'm looking forward to getting back to Portman Road for the sheer joy of going to football again, I'm absolutely fuming at the "BCWYWF" sh!thousery I've just read from the deluded simpleton running our football club.
He has succeeded in tipping me over the edge to now be determined to vocally protest against both him and Lambert.
Normally I would never countenance not getting behind the team while the game is going on, but enough is enough. As such I'm recommending all like-minded fans who are able to apply for the Portsmouth ballot to do so, with a view to letting both Evans and Lambert know how we feel as loudly as possible.
Who is with me? I understand that if you get allocated a ticket you can then say which stand you'd like to be placed in? Maybe a few of us could band together, don our Phil Ham masks and let rip?
Any and all ideas gratefully received.
