    No it didn’t Al , but that was in a 442 formation , with Bell as a left sided midfielder . . I’d play 5 at the back with Bell and Nyambe as full backs and Williams as one of the 3 central defenders . This will give Bell the freedom, if the game allows it , to overlap in the same way he did against Northampton & Walsall

    We all have our theories. Too some extent we have too many players who should be first teamers and one has trouble trying to fit them all in, which is one of Mowbray's problems but IMO Nyambe is not one of them at the moment. He needs a rest.

    A rest ? He's a young lad , rest isn't needed . They only train and play footy .

    I have a feeling that is what was planned on Saturday but when they came at us we reverted to 4 at the back straight away

    OK I'll put it more bluntly. He needs dropping.

    So that's a vote for Option 2 I take it Al? I'm not against that that's for sure and if means minimum disruption elsewhere.

    That looks imbalanced and well out of kilter to me OOT.

    Didn't realise that Shrewsbury were playing at Fleetwood tonight! Rovers fans might have been best advised to swell the Highbury crowd by e few thousand and join in with the Cod army to cheer the lads on.

    Samuel must be in because Graham is 32 and being rested. This is not our strongest team. I would have dropped Nyambe and I'd have played Bell at left back but having said that it could be worse knowing how over cautious our manager is. I assume that Lenihan will get some time if possible later on.

    I don´t want to be negative but Williams must have one of the worst touches I´ve seen for a long time.

    Pompey relying on set plays and their big men. Stop giving corners.
