Noticed the way the fixtures have fallen and with rescheduled/cancelled games we have played 8 away games and only 6 home. Next two league games are away so it will read 10 away and 6 home shortly. If we come away with 3,4 or 6 points we'll probably still be top or very close (game in hand).
Could be crucial for us in run in. 8 of our last 12 games of the season are home. That's a massive advantage. Hopefully we can stay out in front but this could be really helpful! Somembig atmospheres and if we're going for promotion some good crowds!
24 years ago we lost 9-0 to Man Utd. Peter Schmeichel was in goal that day for Man Utd. So fast forward those 24 years and the scoreline finally matched....with Kasper Schmeichel in goal for the victors.
Its a funny old game!
(Apologies if it was talked about during game - didnt see it).
Just thinking about the players signed perm by Hurst and who has come good. My summary:
Edwards - player there and he has contributed but not consistent and a little lightweight. Still could become hit or miss. Nsiala - got better last season but not someone you trust at the back. Strong opportunity to do well in L1
Miss Donacian. Just not Champ level when signed and doesnt suit a progressive football side even in L1 as not good enough on ball. Roberts - fair play to Roberts in that he will put a shift in and tries hard. Miles off it in terms of quality. Like him but clear miss. Harrison - injuries contributed to him being miss rather than jury out be sold and done little at pompey. Not a natural scorer and again not the quality required.
Hit Nolan - Has become an important player. At least 6 months of jury out but grew into team and now a strong asset. Jackson - also Jury out entire season but has kicked on with regular football. Could still see in Jury out for some but has done enough for me to sit in hit pile.
