Cyor, you've had a good month there. Unlucky against stevenage but it happens. Good luck next month
@Aaron - cheers man
A good month man, just turn those draws to wins and you'll be flying! How is the table looking?

Hello and its a new month and a new review this month. Its been a whole month since we last wrote our report on Portsmouth and boy are we exited to bring you all the results from the last month. Portsmouth endured a 7 match month playing league and cup games and have averaged a decent month. Dinamonte is said to be highly coveted by other teams at this momentum time with Christmas not far away clubs are shuffling managers about like a pass the parcel. Teams such as Bradford City, Burnley and Cardiff have all expressed interest in the services in Dinamonte. Its understood that Dinamonte has remained quiet on speculation showing that he is committed to the project at Portsmouth. Well its that review time and to bring you it in glory is Clive Sullivan.

Coventry City 2-3 Portsmouth
(Stuart Beavon 83, Scott Wooton O.G 85) (Conor Washington 1, 73, Omar Bogle 53)
Sky Bet League One

Coventry had the turn of being home favourites after the previous away loss to Portsmouth 2-0. Coventry put on a late brave fight with Stuart Beavon scoring in the 83rd minute before a helping hand from Pompey defender Wooton netted the wrong side to give Coventry a late comeback attempt. It wasn't to be though as Portsmouth led comfortably with goals from Omar Bogle and a brace from Conor Washington.

Portsmouth 1-0 Wigan
(Omar Bogle 73)
Sky Bet League One

Wigan who are promotion favourites this year came in to the game on good form and looking to take advantage of an inconsistent Portsmouth. The Latics battled hard throughout but ultimately fell short when Pompey striker Omar Bogle netter in the 73rd minute. Portsmouth deserved their goal as they battled just as hard as The Latics did. Another 3 points to the total will be music to Dinamonte's ears.

Cheltenham Town 0(p)-0 Portsmouth
Checkatrade Trophy Group K

Cheltenham held there own fiercely in this cup contest and managed to hold Portsmouth to extra time and penalties. The game was evenly matched even with Portsmouth clear favourites being a division above the home side. Few and far between for chances in this one with Cheltenham looking the most aggressive throughout. Portsmouth lost the game on Penalties but still managed to retain top spot in the group with few games to go.

Portsmouth 2-3 Gillingham
(Conor Chaplin 53, Omar Bogle 79) (Ike Ugbo 47, Kai Naismith 52, 66)
Sky Bet League One

Its was time for the Gills to take revenge on Portsmouth after they knocked the Gills out of the Carabao Cup. An early second half strike from Ike Ugbo made the difference in a ding dong battle. Former Portsmouth player Kai Naismith netted on 52 minutes as the story usual goes for former players to ruin their former clubs hopes. From kick-off Chaplin netted in the bottom left to give Portsmouth a fighting chance until Naismith but the game beyond reach with Gillingham's 3rd goal. Omar Bogle gave hope of a resurgence with a consolation in the 79th minute but Gillingham held their own to take all 3 points.

Blackpool 1-0 Portsmouth
(Kun Temenuzhkov 35)
Sky Bet League One

Newly promoted Blackpool controlled and put Portsmouth in further misery as they claimed all 3 points in a close tie. The teams where evenly matched until Kun Temenuzhkov scored a fabulous strike from distance in the 35th minute. After the goal Blackpool shut up shop and counter played Portsmouth's attacking advancements. Left frustrated by a well organised defense Dinamonte made multiple tactical changes in an attempt to break down Blackpool but no such luck was garnered.

Portsmouth 1-3 Walsall
(Connor Roberts 81) (Carlton Morris 11, Erhun Oztumer 58, 64)
Sky Bet League One

Further misery was applied to Portsmouth's season as they fell prey to Walsall. In a match that was no contents Walsall dominated from start scoring in the 11th minute with Carlton Morris. It was all Walsall going into the break and continued in the second half when 12 minutes in Erhun Oztumer blasted home from 12 yards to make it 2-0. It only took the player 6 minutes to score again to put the game to bed but not before Connor Roberts had his say netting a consolation in the 81st minute

Peterborough 2-1Portsmouth
(Chris Forrester 33, Jack Marriot 75) (Jack Whatmough 34)
Sky Bet League One

Another revenge win was on the cards and duly delivered after last seasons doomsday fixture it saw Peterborough take the cake to send Portsmouth down to 15th in the league. Peterborough took the initiative scoring on 33 but shortly after Jack Whatmough bundled a header in to level it up. The teams where even and walked in at half time level. The second half was quiet until Peterborough's Liam Shephard saw red on 71. This surely would give Portsmouth a distinct advantage but it was rather opposite as Peterborough took a surprise lead in the 75th minute by winger Jack Marriot. To make it 5 losses in a row for Dinamonte's side.

After a very positive start Dinamonte will surely be feeling distraught after his team fell apart through October. Its been no secret that Dinamonte and chairman Michael Eisner are not seeing eye to eye after a drunken Dinamonte revealed his boss was a "pompous prick" and "needs to jus chillll owtttttt" tensions are high in the Portsmouth camp and things must improve in November if Portsmouth are to get anything from this campaign. Maybe Dinamonte is eyeing up a move to his admirers or maybe things aren't as bad as they think. Who knows? Till next time we will see you for November and don't forget to grow your moustache.

Chapter Three

I find myself locked in this office almost 24/7 and its starting to become somewhat of a chore than a job. The office is bland and empty with nothing but a pale oak desk with chipped wood and a few Disney memorabilia that Mr. Eisner insists I have on my desk. The heating is naff and the air con is shabby so its either too warm or too cold and I didn't sign up for a trip to the Antarctic or Africa. I'm beginning to question my place as manager already as Mr. Eisner is always at my throat if we get anything other than 3 points from every game we play and its becoming extremely uncomfortable.

As I work my way through the seas of paperwork and emails I get a knock on the door "Come In" I say questionably, probably Eisner again telling me we need to win the Champions League in 2 games the pompous prick. The door creeks open as the hinges haven't been oiled since the 20's and in steps no less than 7 players.

Chaplin speaks up for the group and surprises me with his choice words "Boss, we've come to speak to you and me and the lads are very unhappy with squad moral at the moment and things need to change. The dressing room is in shambles and we think your the problem" Shocked I sit there and ponder how on earth I have had a negative effect on these lads and how they dare come and question me on my coaching techniques. "What makes you say that boys? Is it something I'm not doing right?" The lads look between each other before Chaplin chimes in again. "Boss, we feel that the recent results have been poor and its down to your tactics. Some of the lads just don't see you as the man to take us forward and the language barrier is awful"

My face turned from shock into a red mist within nano seconds of the team telling me this "HOW DARE YOU!!, ITS YOU GUYS WHO PLAY BALL ON THE PITCH NOT ME!! AND IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE ITS MY TACTICS HOLDING THE SQUAD BACK THEN MAYBE JUST MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE PLAYING ELSEWHERE" Instantly I regret what I said even though I meant it in everyway this was never the way to win them round and for sure they would resent me. They looked around in shock as Chaplin's tone matched mine in a lock of furious horns "WITH RESPECT BOSS!!, We play exclusively to your style, instructions and formation and it just doesn't work. Then you have the nerve to shout at us like its our fault, what happened to open door policy" The anger just rages inside of me as these overpaid fairy boys think they can run this club, I'd like to see them try. I wish it was like when I played and nobody dare fight there manager out of respect "GET OUT MY OFFICE AND GET ON WITH YOUR FOOTBALL BEFORE I DROP YOU ALL AND SELL YOU TO THE NON LEAGUE WHERE YOU CAN ROT FOR YOUR CAREERS, NOW OUT!!" The squad followed Chaplin out of the door all leaving with parting remarks that where meant to offend.

How has it come to this? You think things are going well and then people just come and ruin your day. I'm not paid enough to deal with this and they should be funding my wages if they think its my fault. My mind is in overdrive now and I'm ready to flip the [email protected]#t until the phone rings. I pick up and mask my anger with a polite tone. "Hello, Dinamonte's office" The line stayed quiet before a crackle came over and an Italian voice rang through the speaker. "Georgio? Is that you?" He was well spoken in English and appeared to be reaching out for me "Hello? Who is it?" I questioned? The voice began to reply from the other end but the reception was petering out "Georgio Its me Antonio, L**** are interested ** *** se*****s can we meet up on ******** ****" The phone cut dead, All I got was Antonio and can we meet. I haven't seen Antonio in years what could he possibly want from me. I haven't the time to call back Mr. Eisner has emailed me and wants to see me right away.... Great.
Not the best end to the month :( you tell em, I wonder who L**** could be?
L**** for Lazio?
@Aaron - I know man and i will do and I don't know

@TNFM - Could be or just because Antonio is Italian doesn't mean its an Italian team? ;)
After a poor month I think a move away would be rather tempting right now!
Things are beginning to get heated....
@ScottT - I think a change is rather tempting

@MrGriffin2012 - Heated alright, these overpaid scallywags urgh!!

November No Contender

Welcome back and this month we have all the drama, tears and exclusive scoops on the Portsmouth team. Georgio Dinamonte who has been under extreme pressure has battled November and ultimatley scraped up points but not enough. The Portsmouth boss has been under immense pressure lately and results have thus far shown the pressure to be effecting things on the pitch. Its been another month following Portsmouth and things havent showed much promise of improvement. Dinamonte was reported to be losisng the dressing romm after arguments with players and stubborness in changing his attitude according to Striker Conor Chaplin. Without further a due here's Clive with the monthly report.

MK Dons 4-1 Portsmouth
(Peter Pawlett 22, Osman Sow 27, 41, 90+2) (Conor Chaplin 3)
Sky Bet League One

The poor form continued when Portsmouth visted MK Dons this and yet another sense of false hope ws installed when COnor Chaplin opened the scoring on 3 minutes for the visitors. It didnt take long for The Dons to make amends when Peter Pawlett scored a low driven shot to equal the team up. The Portsmouth defence opened up like a broken damn and 5 minutes later Osman Sow put the home side ahead, Sow didnt waste much time in delivering further misery when he gave the home a side a 2 goal advantage going in to the break. The seconfd half was dominated by a possesion hungry home side who held the ball well for the second half before rounding the game off with a well placed shot from Sow to complete his hat-trick and 3 points for the home team./i]

Barnsley 0-1 Portsmouth
(Diego Fabbrini 35)
Sky Bet League One

Portsmouth managed to steal a rare 3 points in an unconvincing win over promotion contenders Barnsley. The game so minimal action barring the strike on 35 minutes that Diego Fabbrini delivered. The game was lacking exitement and neither team looked like they wanted to play football at all. Netherless 3 points is 3 points and Dinamonte must take what he can while he can.

Gloucester City 1-1 Portsmouth
(Victor Adeboyejo 34) (Callum Elder)
FA Cup 1st Round

A below par performence from Portsmouth almost allowed a confident Gloucester side to upset the odds in the FA Cup 1st Round. GLoucester dominated most the game showing Portsmouth why they deserve a chance in the Football League. Gloucester took the lead with 11 minute sto go in the first half and no response was likely from the away side who where favourites. The second half was much the same story with Gloucester dominating. When all looked lost a fluke shot from the wing form wing back Callum Elder gave the blues the equaliser they needed to take the tie to a reply at Fratton Park.

Portsmouth 2-1 Cardiff
(Conor Chaplin 74, Ryan Manning 85) (Danny Ward 59))
Sky Bet League One

Recently relegated Cardiff City came into this game as favourites even as the away side against a questionable Portsmouth my side who have failed to find consistency thus far. The first half of the game was evenly matched with chances for both side failing to make impact on the scoreline. The second hald was much the opposite with Cardiff stronger of the two sides after the interval. 59 Minutes into the game the deadlock was broken by Danny Ward giving the Bluebirds a distinct advantage. Portsmouth didnt look like coming back into the game until direct football was employed in the last 15 minutes. Forward Conor Chaplin levelled things on the 79 minute mark before a long ball was played into Ryan Manning who found himself straying from Midfield and nestling the ball inot the back of the net. 3 points scraapily but well earnt.

Portsmouth 3-2 Gloucester City
(Rohan Ince 15, Brett Pitman 54, Conor Chaplin 81) (Victor Adeboyejo 4, Mason Bloomfield 49)
FA Cup 1st Round Replay

Gloucester knew a win was possible after showing Portsmouth they are no push overs in the previous tie. But it was the blues who narrowley took the win in a close game. Gloucester seeked the early intiative scoring on 4 minutes by previous goalscorer Victor Adeboyejo. It was until the 15 minute that Portsmouth found an equaliser from Rohan Ince. The game was levelled after that the teams going into half time with different perspectives. Gloucester seeked another early goal and found one 4 minutes into the second half from Mason Bloomfield. Clearly aggrivated by the score Portsmouth picked up the pace and cancelled the goal out 5 minutes later with a sharp strike from Brett Pitman. Things looked set for an extra-time shoot out but Chaplin levelled from 30 yards to take Portsmouth 3-2 up with 10 to go. Gloucester franticly searched for a goal to level but Portsmouth held strong

Luton Town 2-0 Portsmouth
(Danny Hylton 79, Luke Berry 90)
Sky Bet League One

With hope that taking six points would help the Portsmouth teammove from 15th was ill concieved as the blues remained to the same league position as the beggining of the month, This game saw them travel to Luton in a game of even odds. Luton who had just been promoted were a feel good side in the league performing against expectations and made no exception to Portsmouth. Once again either side could make a first half impact and it was left till late in the day for one team to take the spoils and the home side clenched the chance. Danny Hylton russeled the net on 79 minutes before Luke Berry sealed it on 90 minutes. Dinamonte could be seen leaving the pitch distraught and stressed.

Portsmouth 0-3 Oxford United
Sky Bet League One

There is nothing in perticular to report about this game as Georgio Dinamonte was missing from the dug-out as speculation rises of his future at the club. However Oxford United came out eventual 3-0 winners over the blues sealing off a shaky month for Portsmouth.

The end of the month has seen Dinamonte absent from the Oxford game with rumours circulating that Dinaminte has been sacked and other rumours suggest Dinamonte has resigned from his post. Only time will tell with media outlets pushing Michael Eisner to release a statement in regard to the rumours, Dinamonte has been a ghost and has not been seen since rumours surfaced about this ordeal. Portsmouth fans have expressed their empathy towars the Georgian hoping rumours aren't in fact true abd hope the club will easefact and that the board give the Georgian more time and ease pressure on the first time manager. Check with us in the next few hours or days as we await news on the fate of Georgio.

Another rocky month for you, especially in the FA Cup but Gloucester knew that was one of their biggest games they'll see for a very long time most likely. Some good results against the likes of Cardiff shows that you can definitely compete, just need to find some consistency.
There are definitely some positives in there, especially beating Cardiff who I imagine are a side being tipped with promotion!

Chapter Four

The bar was empty and so was I, Portsmouth was never really a good place for a night out. The bartender cleaned the bar for the 36th time to look busy as he consistently watched me bleed my glass so he could spring to action and offer a refill. The day had been long and I was in the worst possible state, drunk, jobless and ruining my life. How could something so exiting turn into my worst nightmare. The media are looking for me to parade me on the front page of their scummy newspapers and yet I sit here.. alone and sad because I gave up Georgia to come and work in Portsmouth, the English dream huh?

I called an uber because that's a thing now and I'm hip, trendy and down with the kids. 4 minutes was all it took before I was picked up by a middle aged Southern man. "Where we of to then, I see you've been drinking, did we pick up any ladies?" He quizzed me but I say nothing, I wasn't in the mood for small talk. I didn't even have to say my address because I'd punched it in on the app thingy. Technology was never a strong point for but saying that I never grew up with that sort of thing, I had a torn out football, worn boots and a goal with no net on the local field. I'd train hours upon hours to entertain myself. To pass the time I thought back a few hours ago to my final conversation with Mr. Eisner.

(7 Hours Ago)

I sat sifting through emails and paperwork like every other day in my small worn out office and wondering how I let myself into something so wrong. The sun was highest in the sky and for November this was supposedly good. Id been back and forth with Antonio over emails and him bugging me to meet him because he has some surprise for me. He's flying in next week to stay for a few days, god knows how he's going to fit in my apartment, I hope that's not what he's expecting.

The door flew open interrupting my thought process and in walks Mr. Eisner, ever heard of knocking I thought to myself. He did his usual ritual before telling me off by pacing up and down the office, looking out the window disgusted at the scenery and then proceed to ruin my entire day. This time there was something odd about him that he was going to have a go at me but in a different way. My thought was wrong.

Mr. Eisner: "Good Afternoon Georgio, I won't beat around the bush, the team is doing dreadful and nothing has changed. 6 points a month isn't going to cut the mustard"

Georgio: "With respect sir this is a very competitive league and I believe the points we have picked up are sufficient and beating teams like Cardiff show real promise in us"

Mr. Eisner: "Its not good enough for me or the boys, Its been brought to my attention that you are too tactically naïve and you treat the players like second class citizens so I'm told"

Georgio: "Well I can tell you now that I have never given the players anything less then 100% honesty and sometimes these players need to be told that they don't run the club and that if they as for something it must be earnt and not just given"

Mr. Eisner: "Look we could sit and argue all day but until we are in the play-off spots I will be on your ass until we do so and if you can't handle that then maybe you should leave"

Georgio: "MAYBE I WILL QUIT THEN, Do you know what Michael you are unbelievable. You are literally the worst person I have had the misfortune of meeting and working with. If you can find someone better than me who will put up with your s#@t then be my fu#@ing guest because I'm done with this. I can't work under you and the players are a bunch of overpaid whiney idiots who think they no best. How about you hire one of them to be boss because you all have the same bigheaded ego. You think you can conquer the world. Maybe Michael, just maybe you should F#@k off back to Disney World and deal with commercial bulls#@t because that's all your good at 'Business' so take your job shove it up your rear end and live your egotistical dream because I'm not a part of it, Ciao [email protected]".

Oh my god what have I just done? I feel incredible but yet so scared because I'm now jobless and stuck in Portsmouth. But that feeling I can't get over it and to see his shocked face like that was priceless. Well now I'm free I think I may hit the pub because I ought to celebrate my success of leaving this place behind me. I should look forward to seeing Antonio and look forward to finding another job.

(Present Time)

I paid the Uber and stumbled out the car, I walked the steps to my apartment and raided my pockets for my keys. I pull the keys out and smile at the jangle they make before dropping them on the floor. I don't remember anything after that apart from being woken up by a lovely elderly woman and her dog licking the sick from between my feet. I gingerly awoke and realised I needed to be at the Airport in 30 minutes. Id have to text and tell him to wait while I clean myself up. I reach for my phone and its missing, well I best just set off like this... Nightmare
