Skates game 08:23 - Sep 19 with 3438 viewsWinchesterExile

The problem I'm having with this game is my expectations. I want us to absolutely crush the fu*ckers. 1-0 or 2-0 to us isn't good enough. 3-0 is just about acceptable but I'm really looking for a 5-0 +.

I fear my expectations will lead to disappointment.

strange one isn't. Probably the best time to play then as if we play well 99/100 we win. Yet also the worst time to play them as anything but a win would be absolutely hideous and we'd never hear the end of it. IM still amazed to see some of our fans say there is nothing to brag about if we beat a league one side, I guess football isn't the game for them.

It will be a tight game.

I’d be less nervous if there was extra-time available before penalties.

Nothing to brag about? Those dopey coonts down the road are still going on about beating a League 1 side as a PL team nearly a decade ago, even though they had a ringer on the bench and got a guy in on loan that they sent back for a refund straight after the match. Saints win and they deserve everything they get.

Surely you'd rather finish a couple of places higher in the league? I mean who wouldn't take a 12th place finish and losing to the skates over finishing 14th and stuffing them in their back yard?

A win will be good but a big win will be even better. We've scored 5 against them 3 times, which is something they've never achieved against us. It would be great to make it a fourth.

Agreed. 100% battle is the minimum I expect then our "quality" should tell.
I look at the team and I'm trying to work out who will really be up for it. We aren't exactly a team of warriors.
I'd hope PEH will be and I think Ings too.
The others in our squad would be Bertrand, Vestergaard, and Armstrong (experience from his Celtic days).
I think the atmosphere could come as a shock to the rest of them.

In many ways, 'battling' is exactly what our players shouldn't get drawn into. The only way we can lose this is by getting players sent off, which is what happens to a lot of visiting teams at Fratton Park. The Pompey Boo Boys are good at booing their own team but they are also good at getting referees to give red cards and penalties. Running fast, yes, keeping the ball, yes and playing well, yes, but getting involved in battling against players who are much slower and less skilful and who will do everything they can do get one of ours sent off, no. It only takes one of our players to go flying in with an early tackle and we'll be down to 10 men and Pompey could then scrape a draw,

JWP getting sent off is probably a good bet.

He will be in for some right old scumming when he is at close quarters to the frothing hatred riddled fish/sister botherers whilst taking corners, and will probably be on the end of some agricultural tackles on the pitch.

Add Yoshida to the players who'd be up for it .... and pray that his Sumarai Warrior instinct comes out instead of Kamikazi defending

They're capable of getting a draw and we are capable of missing penalties. It will be tight I think.

I was just about to past that but you beat me to it. I wouldn't pick him for this game. Danso is another one who could be at risk of a red card. But, JWP is almost nailed on to get one if he plays.

I hope we manage to avoid being absolutely sh*t for 45 minutes like we have in most games this season. Start slowly and let them get up a head of steam and we'll be in for a battle. Play smartly, i'd expect lots off early pressure and huff and puff for them and let them blow themselves out, we should be able to catch them on the break, then take the sting out of the game.

A draw wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. We could bring them back to St Mary's and thrash them 6-0. We'd then have a 4 match unbeaten run against them going back a decade and bragging rights would be secure for many years to come.

For those who want to see us absolutely crush them, getting them back to our place could be the best way.

Yep my point Dirk was that they will be up for it as will the fans. The last lot we sent down there lost the game in the tunnel before the match cos they shrank from the atmosphere.
They will pressure us and press us from the start and we better be up for that. Once they blow themselves out a bit we should be able to play.
TCM is right too - we have been terrible for the first half of most games. Ralph is a great manager for us but I dont buy this mindless "In Ralph we trust" nonsense. He needs to start getting 90 minute performances from the team.

Goes straight to penalties after 90 mins I believe......no extra time and no replays.

But choosing between a higher league finish and beating those coonts isn't a choice we have to make on Tuesday though. We just need to absolutely crucify them on the night. Our league position will be whatever it is next May.

However, I like the idea of "stuffing them in their back yard". They talk out of their a*rses enough so stuffing them with some sort of explosive device would be a good thing.

Its funny how this game has stayed off the radar .... outside of Liverpool, they are probably the team most Saints Fans want to beat due to various reasons, most recently Poch and Toby dealings and Wanyama virtually going on strike to join them. Then of course their connection with Harry Kuntflaps.Not forgetting Glenda and his spiritual home going (but we got revenge on that one with him getting sack after losing to us!!) Also having Venables as an ex player and manager who whilst England Boss black balled Le God and did a dodgy deal getting Razor Ruddock for a knockdown price via the transfer committe by putting a pathetic bid in for him whilst touting him as a future England player!! Going further back taking Chivers and giving us Frank Saul!!

To be honest I've just about forgiven Poch, and have to say their football is often great to watch and he still says nice things about us despite the abuse he received from us!! But what a week it could be putting Bomo in their place and regaining our rightful place as South Coasts Top Dogs, smashing the skates in their own backyard and then getting a rare win over Spurs!!

Lets see if Carlsberg can rustle this up for us!!
