@FUTCONCEPTS: Fair play to big John, proved me and many others wrong with his performance today.

Thought he was done, Cowleys clearly knew he had it in him to keep starting him every week. #Pompey

@TilleeA: @Pompey what did you put in his weetabix??

@PompeyHazza9: Proved me very wrong fair play.

@Jaybans99: He's had a really good game hopefully this is the start of him firing on all cylinders for us.

@MrRichAnthony: That’s what I’m talking about! And Marquis on the scoresheet!

@StevePFC1: So happy right now 4-0 up against league leaders.

Brace for Marquis which hopefully sends him on his way.

He came in for deserved criticism by peoplewho want him to do well.

@Redman_Riley: My old man asked me why I wasn’t going Pompey today and I responded two words, John Marquis.

The geezer gone and scored twice.
