Danny Cowley faces arguably the biggest task of his managerial career as he looks to turn around the fortunes of Portsmouth. He certainly isn’t afraid of a challenge having taken Concord Rangers from the Essex Senior League to the National League South. His latest challenge involves almost completely rebuilding his squad in the midst of a toxic environment. The abject final day failure to make the play-offs saw fans vent their fury at the players and several have opted to move on for pastures new. Despite claims to the contrary, some of them will be missed, not least goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray, who has joined Charlton Athletic. Abusive racist messages aimed at England players from several academy players following the Euro 2020 final brought the club into further disrepute and winger Ronan Curtis has made his pending move away from Fratton Park all the more messy with some unnecessary public utterances. More out of necessity than design, Cowley has taken on a whole host of trialists, leading to the signings of strikers Gassan Ahadme and Jayden Reid. The latter had two rather disappointing loan spells with Barrow and Walsall in League Two last season. Goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu has arrived on a season-loan from Manchester City, but he too had a disappointing year on loan at relegated Rochdale and it doesn’t bode well for the new season with the return of expectant fans to Fratton Park, who will be short on patience and ready to vent their spleens.

Target


Play-offs. Nothing less will satisfy Pompey fans but with several additions still needed, they already look to be behind their rivals.

Season Review
2020/2021

№8: Portsmouth

Portsmouth continued to underperform with another disappointing season. Selling out fan ownership to American Michael Eisner was supposed to be the golden ticket back to the Premier League but it has been far from plain sailing for Pompey, who missed out on a play-off place on the final day of the season. Manager Kenny Jackett was under pressure even before they were beaten in the play-off semi-finals last summer and the criticism continued as the side made a steady if unspectacular start to the season. With such an unpopular style success was required and a penalty shoot-out defeat to League 2 Salford City, after being outplayed in the EFL Trophy final at a rain-sodden Wembley, finally marked the end for Jackett. Danny Cowley signed a short-term deal to try and get Pompey into the play-offs and despite showing some improved form; the weak character of the side was fatally exposed in a final day defeat to Accrington Stanley. There is likely to be some significant fall-out following their latest failure although Cowley has impressed the club’s hierarchy and looks like being given the chance to take the club up next season. Craig MacGillivray, Jack Whatmouth, Sean Raggett and Lee Brown did enough to remain part of the squad next season but Cowley will be busy with the likes of Ronan Curtis and Tom Naylor set for summer departures.
