That's what I don't understand surely the coaching staff should be making sure he's fit and not carrying too much weight

A clean sheet. Bliss.

So, Brett Pitman.
Just had a look at the compilation of his goals for Pompey on YouTube.
Three of the 42 were from outside the area and the majority looked to be finishes from inside the 6 yard box.
Some good headed finishes and I guess that he'll be the penalty taker when we eventually start getting some.
He looks to know what he is doing.

Get him fit(ter), get balls into the box, don't worry too much about the contribution in general play and he'll score the goals I'm sure.
Feed the PPP and he will score.



Lump it to the fat kid up front you mean.

One thing that will be interesting is the fullback situation. Donohue and Odimayo both looked very good yesterday and both have good strength and mobility. It’s going to be very hard for Hunt and Caddis to get back in the team now, neither has looked good enough defensively for league 1 this season and have been a bit lightweight.

Watch the dropped catch by Kovar near the end again. Pretty sure he is impeded by the arm of a rovers player.

I’ve criticised a grant this year but he was back on form yesterday.
Swap Conroy for grounds , move Matt smith forward into a doughty role instead of Payne  , bring in Lyden for Payne and I think we will look good

Great compilation, certainly hits a penalty with pace, hope he can get the rythm back with us.

Just need to decide the option at RFB, more physicallity and mobility in defence against more invention going forward.

For me full backs are solid defenders first and foremost

I'm hoping that he comes good like Fjortoft did, rather than being another Thorpe / Cureton.

in the mom thread you called me for for questioning our rbs attacking abilities and now it's something that needs addressing 🤔

I didn't call you out, you insisted every ball went backwards, I pointed out that maybe that wasn't strictly true. 

Also, i didn't say it needs addressing just pointed out that there is a choice to be made one which Sheridan / Wright made on Saturday. It appeared to make us more secure defensively but it's difficult to tell as Rovers weren't particularly threatening.
 
Away to Lincoln will be a much bigger test.

We’ve lost Ginger Pele and replaced him with a heavier version, hence Pork Pie Pele although as  Lardy cake is being discussed at length this week he could have been Lardy Pele just as easily
