Loads of Portsmouth fans have reacted to club owner Michael Eisner’s post-match comments after they beat Southend convincingly on Tuesday night.
Eisner had been coming under increasing pressure to take action, with a vocal section of the Portsmouth fans demanding that Jackett be sacked in the middle of games as well as online.

Can Portsmouth still win promotion this season?
But the American has not wavered in his support for the ex-Millwall and Wolves boss, confirming at a fan event last week that he does not want the club to become synonymous with knee jerk reactions.
The Tuesday night win sees the club rise into 13th place, now just five points outside the race for the top-six with a trip to Harrogate Town in the FA Cup first round awaiting them this weekend.
However, Eisner will not have been too pleased to see the response to his tweet with many still unconvinced about the manager’s credentials.
Here is what they had to say…
Papering over the cracks I’m afraid Michael. Jackett is devoid of ideas and the team have no creativity. He’s sucking the life out of the place.

Against a team second bottom of the league the scoreline flatters us completely it’s all going to go wrong against stronger teams

Nice too finally get the points . But performance wise first half was a snooze fest 😴 awful performance. Bit better second half .

Wish we had this prompt response when we lose. Paper over cracks against a very very poor Southend tonight.

A new manager would feel even betterer.
