Do you really think the management team pick players because they are 'favourites'?

I would suggest those that you think are favorites are played because they fit the way we want to play and can be trusted to do the job asked of them.

So do I Rosey!

I think managers do have favourites, but I think they are favourites for some valid historical reasons, as well as personal ones.

One problem managers have, is they can get too close to players, and see too much of them. They can lose objectivity by seeing them daily.

How many times have you heard them say "so and so looked good in training".

Fans can be brutally objective. We only see match day performances, and we don't know that player A is a really nice guy, or player B is a pain in the rear, or A is superb every day in training.

We need to get Roberts back on form and back in the team. Our chances of a good second half to the season our much better with Roberts at his best in the team than without that.

I wouldn't start him on Saturday though ..he would have more chance of success in an away match with a supportive crowd.

I completely agree roseys. Let's be honest, we all want Cookie to succeed because it means our club succeeds but he needs to be less stubborn.
SOPompey, if Cookie doesn't have favourites, why do useless "footballers" like Smith continually get into the side?

Ironic but true to be talking about away matches providing a supportive crowd. I think Fratton is becoming a bugbear for a lot of this squad.

If the crowd are getting on the teams back at home, and there is little evidence of this. Then that is purely down to Cook and his defensive style with players playing when out of form and pompey struggling week in week out to entertain the crowd.

Quite frankly its up to them to step up a gear or 3 and start putting in consistently good performances. Something that hasn't been happening for months at home.

if he wants to get the crowd on his side saturday he knows exactly what is required, a team that attacks and creates genuine chances rather than hopeful long shots. Dropping a clearly out of form (or lacking class) Smith will help, going for Orient from the off with two genuine strikers both with some pace or guile would go a bit further, especially if they help roberts to look a bit more like himself

Sorry to say Roseys111, if I was a betting man my money would be on the 'ffs'.

I really hope I'm wrong.
