Dread is such a tough word, I mean, you have to dread something. That's a dreadful thought, dreading what will happen, as if it is a dreadnought captained by Captain Dredd. I talked to Captain Dredd once, dreadful guy, let me tell you. I dreaded meeting him, and I think, honestly, I think he is one of the most dreadful guys I have ever seen, and quite honestly, the most dreadful man to ever be seen of the likes of before. His dreadlocks look so dreading that it might talk to you, and I think they did when I was talking to Captain Dredd. So that's why, I appoint Captain Dredd to make Rovers Dreadful Again!

The steward definitely dived and should have been yellow carded for simulation. Hope he is ok though. If Vince Grella had done that he would have been injured for six months. As for Samuel well it was raining hard and very windy. I would have took my ball home too but since it wasn't his ball he did the next best thing.

Great match, great performance yesterday. Full credit to the Pompey supporters who never stopped singing even when they were two goals down even with an horrendous journey home in front of them.
Raya's distribution isn't great, especially when he elects to kick to one of the defenders, a couple of times yesterday we only just got away with it, but I'm being picky. Mulgrew was head and shoulders above the other 21 players in terms of quality, why the people who pick mom each week cannot see beyond goal scorers is annoying.Nice to see Conway back, great the way he took his goal.
If Graham had picked up an injury yesterday,we'd have no one to play cf next week. Mowbray needs to address this. I thought Gallagher's comments re Nuttall on Radio Lancashire were very significant - he said ''I watched Nuttall last week, yes he scored goals but contributed nothing else,' which might explain why Mowbray hasn't rushed him into the team.,

Thanks for the next poll question.

6th place with a couple of games in hand and it doesn't feel like we're in a groove yet. It's a good position to build on.

When Conway and Bennett are fit, Antonsson won't get into the team. There can't be many teams with only two recognised centre forwards, particularly if they have ambitions towards promotion. There is a window in January - Mowbray must use this. Rhodes on loan would suit me.

Graham + Samuel + Antonsson = 3 recognised centre forwards. Probably still not enough, but definitely three. :shrug:

Any number of £10million players would be ok I guess...

I can see it now, get Rhodes on loan with a view to buy at 3 million, sign Gestede for a pair of shoes, and score goals again. It's that simple.

In the Championship this season Rhodes has started only twice plus seven appearances as sub, and scored no goals. SW might well be happy to get his wage bill off the books
