How Portsmouth fans have reacted to news that Danny Cowley is set for long-term Fratton Park stay
Pompey fans on social media have welcomed news that Danny Cowley looks set to remain at Fratton Park beyond the season.
The News understands that the Blues head coach, along with his brother Nicky, will stay at Fratton Park for the long haul - even if a place in the play-offs isn’t reached this season.
And that has gone down with the Fratton faithful, with many believing the Cowleys deserve time to stamp their authority on the club.
Here’s a selection of the views which have been shared on Facebook and Twitter...
Harry Wood: Good, keep the Cowley Bros on for another season or two and let them rebuild for the summer. Very happy with this, PUP!
Chris Hawkins: They need time and maybe money to build their own team.
@HarryGardner26: Fans love them, a great record when they have their own team, should get a pre season and a full season as a min.
Players that get the Pompey ethos and want to play for the club! Get rid of the dead wood! PUP.
@FinlayJohn93: Great decision. Modern day coaches who have fantastic ideas! Biggest job they've had, which I have no doubt they'll absolutely 100 per cent give there all and won’t make up excuses if it goes wrong.
Kev Davison: Happy with that, they’re good mangers Definitely worth a season.
@UpTheMoos: We saw Cowleyball in the first few games then the team went back to Jackettball.
Hopefully that will all change with some cowley players in.
Martin Pibworth: Yes happy with this, give them a chance and see.
Mel Clarke: I’m so pleased about that.
@95K1ll: I'd give him two seasons to be fair, will be challenging for a fresh team to hit automatic spots next season, imagine if he had the 2019 squad.
Tony Saunders: Good. Hope they get permission to get rid of the dead wood players which the club are full of.
Paul Carden: Too early. Keep to what was agreed.
@BenButler7: I felt this would be the case considering Danny’s involvement in hiring Miller.
I’m personally happy with the decision and look forward to seeing their clear out this summer.
Richard Carter: Give him a year. Promotion next season or you're out.
Brett James: Love this! Drain the swamp - players and backroom room staff.
Let them have a fresh canvas and a 3-year contract, and I believe we’ll get promoted in that time.
@JasonManninjg: No brainer for me. Good guys to have at the helm. Give them time and I think they’ll succeed.
@bud2773: In hindsight they should have been brought in earlier for me.
But I’m glad they will be given time to build their own team now!
