What The Bosses Said - Pompey Vs Latics


Following yesterdays Halloween horror show at Portsmouth lets take a quick look how the bosses Roberto Martinez of Wigan Athletic and Pompey`s Paul Hart saw the game:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez

'We had too many distractions probably this week, with one of the players getting sentenced, and all the paper talk.

'But that is not an excuse. We had enough time to prepare for the game. We knew it was going to be a very tough game.

'It (the Ferguson incident) is a situation that I never wanted to be involved with. I am not that sort of person.

'Sometimes you can avoid those situations. But that is not an excuse or a reason for the way that we performed.'

'To put it simply, we did not have any intensity, any clarity in our play on the ball.

'We knew that Portsmouth were going to start with tempo and throw everything at us. And we had to take the sting out of the game. We had to impose ourselves.

'We didn't do that. We were very poor in everything we did on the ball. When you do that it is quite difficult, especially away from home. Today on the ball we let ourselves down.

'We were never first in the second balls. And when we had possession we couldn't find the right pattern and our intensity in our play really let us down.

'Portsmouth scored at the right times and deserved to win.'

Pompey boss Paul Hart

'We got a result for our efforts which has been lacking in recent weeks. We've been working hard for months without having a lot to show for it.

'We set off like trains and we kept that up for the full 90 minutes.

'I've been stood here every Saturday trying to explain why we haven't got the results. That was certainly a reward for our efforts.'

to be brutally honest, we've played like that most weeks, and simply not put the ball in the back of the net.
