  • 16 unchallenged passes for their second goal away at Southend. Don’t think they’ll get away with that on Saturday.

    Yeah, that goal went viral, but we've seen for ourselves what Southend's 'defending' is like.

  • Interesting but frightening...they just waltz around a team that put three past us without giving them a touch...looks like our defence and midfield are in for a torrid time. Red cards possible!

  • I mean...there's not really much pressure on the ball from Southend. A nice goal rather than a great one.

  • I'm never sure if you are not going to attack the player on the ball...what a defender or defensive midfielder thinks they are there for! To be fair Bloomy and Gape would have been in there boot or heads up!

  • We seem very inconsistent in that sense - at the back anyway. We backed off Stephen Humprhys for his two goals, as well hit as they were, and off Pompey a bit - one of theirs almost walked it in, I think after we'd scored.

  • All three goals v Southend were delightful to watch. Things of beauty.

    The Southend defence appeared to make no genuine effort to stop any of them though. The video almost looks like a set up training video where a set of actor/players had been asked to act the defence role without actually trying to defend so that the other actor/players could demonstrate a textbook method of goalscoring.

  • It was a bit like watching the West 'Am Man U game where it seemed Ole has bravely decided that his teams should not have anyone in the opposing half trying to score a goal.
