Stuff the love in for this bloke.

He is clearly not fit enough nor has the required ability to play at this level.

We may as well have 10 players playing.

We can’t afford to carry him for the rest of the season - it’s like playing with ten men.

He ghosts and wonders around in his own world thinking he’s a born again Vieira - he’s not!

we was winning yesterday until he went off. It sounded like on the radio that he played well.

I respect your opinion but have to disagree. He did look very very off the pace at the beginning of the season, but IMO has grown into the league, yes he does look like he's playing at half speed but some of that will be down to his size. The only player any of the Pompey fans I spoke to on the way home yesterday picked out was him, one even going as far as picking his substitution out as the changing point (which has been discussed ad nauseam on here so I won't go further on it). Even under KRobbo we used to say we lacked size, well one of the few things Robbie left was a few larger lads. Cisse provides a bit of muscle and presence and of course the occasional unexpected burst of pace and has a decent passing range. If you honestly believe we're carrying him you are watching a different player to me.

He is a marmite player one minute he looks in total control and the next like he has never seen a ball before, from a fans point of view though he is guilty of the ultimate sin of when losing the ball/misplacing a pass ambling back or waving his hands at the ref/teammates/ opposition players.

He's fine as a defensive midfielder, but did look a little leggy in a more advanced role against Portsmouth.

He played well yesterday.. Very calm on the ball and I don't recall him giving it away once. Controlled midfield for us, but of course because he is tall and slow, he is assumed lazy and at fault for everything.

We were winning until he was subbed.

He didn't have a bad game in central midfield, although once he tried too many step overs / flicks and then kicked the ball out when he was trying to pass to Brittain. He was ineffectual out wide when we had three wide players on the bench and defending set pieces he gave their No 9 far too much space.

That's because he is a defence midfielder, or even centre back, not an attacking midfielder.
You'd think DM would know a DM when he sees one. ;)
I expected Dan to understandably make some rookie mistakes as a manager while he learned on the job, but playing people out of position seems to be more to do with his footballing philosophy than because of his inexperience. Not sure we've got the calibre of players to just switch the way he'd like. Not that I'm complaining. Merely commenting.

For me the substitutions were poor. I really rate McGrandles, but he shouldn't have replaced Pawlett as they are a different type of player. Nesbitt or BTA should have come on for Pawlett and McGrandles in place of Cisse (instead of EEL)
