We tend to lose at Wolves every single time we go there and so I was happy with a point last night. So far we're looking like a mid-table side and I am perfectly happy with that after the last couple of seasons of being down in the relegation fight. :dread:

What a great result last night, not a great ground for us but more than happy with a point

Not really caught up with the match report or anything yet, but saw that we had about 20 shots to your 4. Was it as one-sided as that sounds? I didn't get the impression it was, but either way it sounds like us to lose a game with those stats. Our chances to conceding goals ratio must be ridiculous over the last 3 or 4 years, really need to sort that out.

First time Blackburn have won four on the bounce in ten years, apparently. It's been a tough time. :lol:

No i think it was one of those games that because we went 2 nil up, Portsmouth particularly in the second half just went for it, which is where all the shots came from. Lots of long range, hopeful efforts. Whilst we only had 4 shots that appeared to be because we were trying to do the opposite and get a lot closer before shooting. It was a real end to end game. We didn't sit back after going 2 nil up like the stats may suggest. I assume the manager was telling our players not to shoot early and waste chances whilst your manager was probably telling his players to shoot when possible and get back on level terms.

I wouldn't be too happy with your keeper though if I was a pompy fan, he didn't seem to like to come out for crosses.

Our defending was so gooseberry fool. No wonder we lost.

Thanks, yeah I thought it'd be something like that rather than a smash and grab. McGee has been pretty solid for us so far and won player of the season at Peterborough last year so I'm not too concerned about him having an off day, but that's still quite worrying. Seems like our home form is going to have to be good this season, we've been pretty awful away so far!

It's on today, Moggy.

Hoping to see George Thorne feature for his first league appearance in what feels like forever.

On paper we should have enough quality to make it very difficult for you... in reality we're probably going to have 3 shots on goal, 1 on target and lose 1-0 thanks to a Carson blunder.

My mother reviews the game so far:

Think I'd rather have 20/20 cricket than this, my football days are over for a few years. Now it's going to rain.


Followed up with:

Missed the City goal when replying to you!

Backed Brett Pitman for League One top scorer before season began. Injuries aside it's buying money.
