    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    Fortunate to win today as Coventry played well in the first half and their forward players were causing us all sorts of problems. I think if Nathan Thompson hadn't made that goal line clearance when we were 1-0 down then it would have been a very different result. Both today and against Rochdale on Friday we managed to win despite being on the back foot in both games for long periods. Sometimes you have to grind out results and find a way of winning if you're going to get promoted. You also need a bit of luck as well. With Sunderland drawing today we need to go there and get a result, then win our two remaining games and promotion is guaranteed. Crunch time!

    Crazy game. Oh and thanks for doing us (Pompey) a favour Promotion race is wide open now.

    I don't know about that. Would be nice, but we've got some work to do before that's a likelihood. I think we've got to get at least 90 points for automatic promotion but even that might not be enough.

    Yeah it's getting interesting at the top now. I would say that Sunderland are probably favourites for that second spot as they've got the games in hand over Barnsley. Barnsley are starting to wobble and I think it could be Pompey and Sunderland for the second spot but we're outsiders as we've got points to make up. I think all three teams will drop points though. It's inevitable. Going to be a very interesting finish though, like you say. We've put ourselves back into the mix by winning 4 in a row in the league. Just a shame we had that spell a couple of months ago where we didn't win in 8 games as it probably cost us automatic promotion. Good win yesterday. Brett Pitman scored two - one of which was a blinding free kick from 25 yards. Thankfully KJ's seen the light and is playing him more regularly now. He'll always get goals for us as his instinct around the box is so good. Plus he's been in this position with Bournemouth and we need players with experience in the team who can hold their nerve and do a job for us. Good luck to everyone and..do us a favour and beat Barnsley will you @neoELITE. Thanks!

    We won the Mickey Mouse cup! Now, I'm hardly a big fan of the Checkatrade trophy and have said so in this thread before but today's game was a well fought one. Decent football played by both sides. Sunderland totally dominated the first half and deserved to be in front. Then things turned around in the second half and extra time and I think we deserved to win in the end, even if it was on penalties. Kenny Jackett looks like he's pretending to enjoy himself in the picture!

    FFXI

    Wow, I must have missed this. Thanks for posting that pic Sarish. I was Jaramesh by the way and I agree with Layte. FFXI is still one of my favourite gaming memories. Enjoyed playing with you dude. I seem to remember you helping me out a lot, especially the hours we spent camping that damn Moldavite ring! I don't have any pictures around anymore, sadly. Would love to see if other people have anything though.

    Battlefield V

    Agree completely. When it works and everything flows together, Battlefield really does feel like a fun and immersive experience. I picked BFV up at launch to play with some friends but they didn’t like it and quickly dropped it so I drifted away from the game for a few months. I picked up another copy on PS4 recently and am starting to enjoy it more now that I’m slowly improving. I played about 200 hrs of BF1 and did like that game, despite its issues, but BFV feels like it has tighter gunplay, even though I don’t really like the design of some of the maps. They don’t feel quite as good as BF1. Am also struggling to pick out enemy players sometimes. Hmm. If any of you guys play on PS4 it would be cool to squad up sometime? I tend to jump on most days for an hour or two. Is there an RLLMUK company that people can join? EDIT - Anyone? Hmm... Ok, never mind..I'll just find a streamers Discord and see if people want to squad up there.

    I don't think we will either. It's like we've forgotten how to play all of a sudden - or at least to the standard that resulted in us leading the table for half the season. The players have no confidence either and that's down to the manager to improve. At the moment he doesn't seem to have a clue though and tries to shut up shop at 1-0 and pray for a win.

    Yeah it's ridiculous referring to it as a derby considering the distance between us. We only really consider Southampton a derby. Some fans like to bang on about how much they hate the "scum" but I can't be arsed with all that silly shit. Anyway, I think you'll win easily. We couldn't beat an egg right now and haven't won in 5 games in the league. We're going backwards basically. I'd be surprised if we even got a point. Also, it doesn't help that Jack Whatmough, one of our best centre halves, is out for the season. Plus his replacement Christian Burgess just isn't good enough for League 1. Makes too many mistakes.

    Don't know much about Freddie Ladapo. Looks like we've got a winger from Birmingham on loan until the end of the season (Viv Solomon-Otabor). Done a lot of business this transfer window - signed six players. Hope it pays off.

    I hope it does count in our favour but really we need to start winning matches again. We've just signed James Vaughan on loan from Wigan. He should do well at L1 level, especially as he's played in the PL for Everton(?) I seem to remember. He also helped Wigan get promotion to the championship last season so he knows what it takes to do well at this level. Hopefully he's a good asset for us.

    Yeah it's a definite wobble. On the plus side, we played well in the second half and the striker we just signed on loan from Cardiff - Omar Bogle - looked impressive when he came on. Scored a decent goal too on his debut. We need to get back to winning ways though, for sure, otherwise a wobble can become a slump quite quickly.

    We'll be lucky to make the playoffs if this league form continues. Played well in the second half but Luton had too much for us in the end. 3 losses in a row now.

    We've got Luton away on Tuesday so that's probably why we fielded a slightly understrength team. Otherwise we probably should have won the game, although QPR played pretty well and had chances to win it themselves.

    No idea. KJ prefers Oliver Hawkins (when he isn't injured) as he seems to fit the 4231 formation better, even though he doesn't score that many himself. I think he needs to play Pitman more. He got over 20 goals for us last season and was our leading GS.
