Pearce ahead of Pompey (AUDIO)

Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce knows his side are in for a tough trip down to Fratton Park, hailing the ground as a 'classic' atmosphere that is lost in new stadia, and praising his ex-keeper David James, now at Pompey.

SP talks a good game, not sure if his team are on his wavelength.

I like many others are extremely concerned at the situation within our club right now. Facts are facts. On the pitch: Nowhere near good enough. It's going to take a massive imrovement in all departments to string together any kind of winning run with the fixtures coming up. Too many senior players cry off injured at the slightest knock. In the boardroom: We appear to lack direction. Too many rumours go unchecked and the whole England U21 debacle has been pathetically handled. The club has not appeared strong enough. Ffs, why hasn't anyone questioned the way that Stuart Pearce was suddenly in talks with the FA? The management: Firstly, the backroom staff have no top flight pedigree whatsoever. SP is increasingly coming across as deluded and arrogant and certainly not making the sort of "long run silverware" comments with Manchester City as he has done with the England U21's. If I was on the board, I would not be pleased at all with his veiled criticism of the club regarding him not being allowed to manage the next U21 game. His position is rapidly becoming untenable. He certainly has his pals in the FA. The fans: Taken for granted for too long and rightfully voting with their feet at the turgid performances served up. If we go down, lets go down attacking and playing the sort of football Manchester City fans love.

I think you are placing too much blame at SP's door. The Board are the ones to be taken to task for making him do an impossible job with his hands tied behind his back. Give him the 30 milion required to do a proper job instead of farting around scrounging loans from wherever he can.

I dunno, Alphie. I remain highly critical of the board, but would be very reluctant to give SP 30 mill. After all, he's spent approx 10 million on Samaras, Corradi, Hamman and Isaksson and we've had a *****poor return on that outlay, keeper excluded due injury. Totally agree that his job has been difficult but the 'systems' he has been playing, particularly at home have been tactically naiive and we have no margin for error at this level. I know thousands of Blues agree. I still want him to succeed, but just can't see it on what we've seen this season. Pompey, PNE and Arsenal are now the acid tests for us.
