Portsmouth’s poor form continued last night as they were beaten 2-1 by Burton Albion away from home.
#Pompey Head Coach Danny Cowley
“The people of Portsmouth deserve a better team than the one we are giving them at the moment”
— Andrew Moon (@mrandrewmoon) September 28, 2021
Danny Cowley had been expected to build a squad that could compete for promotion, but the latest setback means they are without a win in seven in League One.
That has seen Pompey drop down the table and they are in the bottom half ahead of a tough weekend fixture against league leaders Sunderland at Fratton Park.
In fairness, the former Huddersfield chief didn’t hide away from the fact that this isn’t good enough, as he admitted to reporter Andrew Moon that the fans ‘deserve better’.
8 of these 20 players never scored a goal for Portsmouth – Can you identify them?
However, whilst some appreciated the honesty, others have heard Cowley saying similar after recent poor performances, so it’s wearing thin now as they want to see action on the pitch from the team.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the comments from the boss on Twitter…
Yep he keeps saying that. Getting quite repetitive now. Words mean nothing when they're not backed up

All sounds good in the media, still picks the same starting 11 with the same system thag does not work. Spin us another one Danny it’s getting boring.

Will back the bloke all the way me. Genuinely believe he'll take us up. Definitely not this season and definitely not with the majority of the players playing atm but the man knows ball. https://t.co/M2YLo9Sgmw

Cowley knows what to say and is very good with god words but it’s getting very repetitive now. https://t.co/5wf4uY2lr5

I like Danny but the "people of Portsmouth" line is getting old fast https://t.co/to6ZkHQXQi

Ask him why he signed a defender made of glass and never got a decent back up. Why has he signed Hirst and Adahme but keeps playing that donkey Marquis. His platitudes are almost as irritating as watching our performances
