An article from Jimsmithswig sharing views from someone who was at the Paint Pot Trophy defeat at Newport last night, glad I was not to be honest!
Unfortunately, well I should say fortunately, I did not go to the Newport debacle last night – in the Newport forum thread I asked for views of someone that did.
Up stepped Jimsmithswig, who said:
Rug I will oblige,
First the positives, managed to side step the bouncer on the door and got in with the home fans in the rugby club for a few beers but most importantly had a magnificent chips and chicken curry for only 4 of my English pounds…… it went down hill rapid after that, it was worse than Saturday.
Carson is getting the goalie liability disease, good shot stopper but awful communication with Bonzo for the first goal and pushed a save back out for the second.
Newport were as expected big and quick but unlike Div 1 last season these big teams can play football and they played us off the park, we were the long ball merchants.
Sadly we are not physically strong enough to compete at this level, this isn’t being dirty but we were just second too often in a one on one challenge, again Holmes and Barcham ran well with the ball but then no cross.
Witts at the end applauded from a distance as the negativity is rising, mind you to sum us all up even the flare thrown from the Pompey fans was pathetic, only managed about 20 feet onto the walkway, not even onto the pitch behind the goal.
We all must do better.
