Live on Sky at 8pm tomorrow.

I really dont think it matters what we do in this game as I think we're already down, 4 games to go and Pompey will get more points from those games than us.

But we must keep trying till the end.
Its certainly possible we can get maximum points from this game, especially at home.

2-1 Baggies

20' minute, 0:0

WestBrom isnt playing like a team who despretly needs to win. Bolton controls the ball, and WB didnt organize any good attack yet. Its only Campbell in front, followed by Kamara

0-0 is the final score. Disappointing, as we couldn't take advantage of Pompey's loss to the fullest extent. We are now level on points with Birmingham (though they have a game in hand) and three behind, who have played the same amount of games as we have. I watched bits of the game on TV, and apart from the end of the first half, it didn't look as though we wanted it. Keep the faith.

I dont know really, the attack didnt work that good, it didnt work good many times this season :rolleyes:

It was a must win match, and Robson starts with Campell in attack who didnt show nothing - again !
Im sure Kanu is better for this strategy (cross balls), he's taller and more dangerous in air, but its funny that Robson started Kanu many times in defensive lineups when WB was playing with counterattacks ? isnt that strange
If WB goes down a new manager should come, bcz only good thing that Robson did this season was the signin of Curtis Davies :rolleyes: and I feel sorry that WB will have to lose most of these players bcz I doubt they want to play in Championship.

I think he played Campbell up front as Bolton are a physical side and Kanu isn't suited to that sort of game. But he had to pull Kamara back into the midfield to make a 5 as we were gettign overrun in midfield. He pulled Greening inside and dropped Kamara to a wide left position, and we looked the better team.

But really with Ellington out injured, it left us with KAnu Cambell and Nicholson as our only fit strikers. So I can see why he went with Campbell. Even though hes pretty useless and we may have well have stuck Kozak upfront with Inamoto rather than have Campbell there.

Gera was unlucky not to score with that header, but apart from that our chances were limited. Kamara showed once again why he is a winger and only a winger, under NO circumstances can he be called a forward.

I think some of the players will stay, but I think Gera may go alas, a real shame but cest la vie.


I would have liked to see us more adventurous in this game, by playing something like

-------------- Kanu ---
--------------- Gera ----
Greening - Inamoto - Quashie - Kamara

Giving Kamara licence to get forward.

I think we'd stand a LOT more chance of actually scoring a goal than playing 4-5-1 with Campbell.
