Are we now in a situation where, in the eyes of his employers, Kenny can do no wrong? Does Kenny feel so safe and secure in his role that he losing focus on what is important perhaps in the belief he won't be sacked?
Very worrying if true.

I think the word your looking for is Complacent and he has that air of complacency about him which is ill founded based on our results so far.

He knows that the only important thing is selling players on for a profit, if he keeps doing that his job is safe regardless of whether we go up or not or whether the football is entertaining.

He’s lost the goodwill of Super Brett and Evans. He is on dodgy ground now.

Well, the mandate was steady improvement which he delivered last year in the eyes of the owners Not the fans. We had automatic promotion snatched from us by two more attacking teams. He delivered a cup & a day out at Wembley though which was nice but promotion had to be the main goal which we failed miserably in. But this year it's been steady decline so far after being given money to spend so the owner's won't be happy come the end of the season if we end up mid-table which looks highly likely at present.

The trouble is, I'm not too sure the Owners would be bothered at all.

The owners wont be bothered, Theyve got 18k people coming week in week out buying refreshments, Selling players for good profits, Why do they need promotion unless the punters stop paying.........

Promotion is not the be all and end all.

A financially secure club, playing entertaining football, is far more important.

That is always the conundrum though. Lose half the matches but play entertaining football.
Not sure that would be acceptable to the majority.

It looks now as though we've got the worst of both worlds. Playing boring football whilst not getting promoted[smi]

Eventually, the fans will turn on the manager if things don't improve by Xmas. They're a very patient lot but paying to see boring defensive football when they could be doing other things will tell at some stage.

They’ll be patient till the end of the season. The message from the club this season has been a target of promotion, if we end up mid table (I’d be shocked if that happened btw) he will be under serious pressure and probably gone.

Looking at the bare facts though, up until this season he has performed well and improved constantly. He’s got an impressive win ratio, a trophy and 88 points last season just missing out on automatic promotion is nothing to be sniffed at. For those in charge of the club, that’s all that’s important, the archaic style of football likely makes no difference to them, not whilst we’re in League 1 anyway. Results business and all..

I think we’ll see a near carbon copy of what happened with him at Wolves - got them promoted, managed them for a couple of seasons in the Championship before the owners opted for a coach with a more dynamic and exciting brand of football.

If we get to December or January and we’re in the same situation I’ll start to worry.

It’s worth saying that having owners that are patient is a rare thing in football these days, it might be frustrating right now with the start we’ve had and the average football, but overall we’re in the best spot this club’s been in for a long long time.

Most are Mikey but some are a right bunch of pussies who cry and wet their pants after 4 games.

Its not just the last 4 games tho, is it? It’s our erratic form since Xmas (please don’t count the 2 bit cup matches/ final, nobody but the winners give a fvck about it).

Bucket..is it correct that the clubs intent is promotion this season ?

I didn't get that impression and the club certainly didn't demonstrate that in their transfer business close season.

Maybe I'm wrong but that's the impression I got. You don't spend up to £2m on Marquis if you're going for a season of consolidation..

Since Jan 1st we've play played 27 games (23 last season 4 this) (inc play-offs) and only won 10. You can make stats to show what you like but those stats show we lost points in 17 games home and away. So 1 win in 4 (this season) and 9 in 23( last season) what ever way you look at it, it's not good enough.

The snooze. Kenny Jackett: Portsmouth performances have promised more than results have delivered this season


Kenny Jackett believes Pompey’s performances have been better than results suggest this season.

The Blues have picked up just five points from as many League One games so far.

One victory, two draws and two defeats leaves Pompey 18th in the table, although they have two matches in hand after postponing fixtures against Rotherham and Southend.

Jackett’s troops have advanced into the third round of the Carabao Cup, though, and face bitter rivals Southampton later this month.

Despite the stuttered start in the league, the boss hasn’t been too downbeat about his troops’ levels of displays.

And he reckons things aren’t too far away from things clicking for Pompey.

‘We would want more than five points out of 15, obviously,' said Jackett, speaking after the 1-1 draw with Blackpool.

‘I’m pleased with the two cup games, we've taken on two Championship sides, got through and got a Premier League side in the next round.

‘Obviously, though, you're always looking at the league being the priority – the same as last year.

‘For us, performances have probably promised a little bit more than results have delivered so far.

‘But it is our job now to make sure we turn them into consistent wins. There is enough time to do that.

‘Overall, we’ve got through in the cup and got ourselves a great draw.

‘You can look at the Blackpool game in isolation or at the big picture.

‘Also for the big picture, we have got some good players and it does look like it could click if we can keep people fit and available.

‘With average luck like that, there’s a good side there for us still this season.’

More Snooze.

"Kenny Jackett: No talks for out-of-contract 10 - Portsmouth focus is on winning games



Ronan Curtis is among 10 players out of contract at Fratton Park next summer.

Kenny Jackett insists there are no plans for contract talks with Ronan Curtis and other prized Pompey assets.

Instead the Blues boss wants concentration focused on firing up the club’s promotion aspirations

In addition to the Republic of Ireland international, there are Brett Pitman, Oli Hawkins, Luke McGee, Christian Burgess, Lee Brown, Brandon Haunstrup, Adam May, Anton Walkes and Matt Casey.

The existing agreement for Curtis, among the lower-paid Pompey first-team regulars, has a club option for an additional 12 months – a clause which usually maintains the present wage level.

Jackett has made it clear he wants the 23-year-old to remain on the south coast, having exceeded expectations since his May 2018 arrival.



But contract talks with all Pompey players are presently not on the club’s ‘priority list’.

The Blues boss said: ‘I don’t think it’s contract time at the moment.

‘For the next few months it’s going to be trying to get some results, with the group settling down and concentrating on football.

‘If there are any outstanding contracts we feel need to be looked at then yes, we will react, we do see that.

‘But, generally, it will be about performances and concentrating on football, I don’t think it (contracts) will necessarily be high on the priority list.

‘This is a period where we try to win as many games as possible and concentrate on that. From the club’s point of view, I don’t think there will be a review of the contracts now.

‘Curtis is definitely an asset and we have been pleased with him. His contractual situation is this season and a year’s option.

‘At some stage I am sure we will talk, but it’s not necessarily imminent in the next few months because concentration for all of us has to be having a good first half to the season.

‘The contract situation has just gone with the summer – let’s just concentrate on the football.’

Walkes and Casey join Curtis in possessing club options on the 10-strong list.

They are renewals at the club’s discretion, positioning Pompey in a strong position should they want to retain such players.

Jackett added: ‘I have been really pleased with Ronan, he has started brightly and hopefully can replicate the form of last season when he was terrific, that’s the aim anyway.

‘He is a big find, has done well and I’m pleased has got into the Republic of Ireland squad, hopefully he can build on it now.

‘His running stats are very, very high, he’s a very fit lad and there is no reason why he can’t replicate last season".’
