    Ronan Curtis

    After scoring his third goal in four League One appearances tonight, I thought Curtis should have his own thread: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45178106

    So he assisted their opening goal, gave away the penalty that levelled it and hit the winner on 87 minutes and gave a nice thumbs up to his marker as he was subbed off after that, who he had been goading all night - https://fansonline.net/portsmouth/mb/view.php?id=744692

    He seems like a c**t but a good kind of c**t just the kind of striker we could do with, someone who will go on the field and frustrate the opposition. This is all when he crosses the whitewash, off the field he could be a real nice guy though

    You could imagine a younger James McClean being the subject of a lot of that thread!

    Also, funny to see them going down the road of an argument about the naming of Derry when it’s Donegal that Curtis has grown up in.

    Although maybe it was Derry? https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/sport/f...rtis-1-8583438

    Interesting to note his mother is Irish but it looks as though his father has an Irish father too.

    No, he grew up in St Johnston in Donegal.

    I was sure that it was Donegal too. Something must have been lost in translation in that article.

    Is Curtis looking increasingly too good for League One? He's put Pompey up 1-0 at home to Plymouth. His 4th goal and August only over.

    He answered my question for me. He got an assist and another goal as Pompey won 3-0. It will be interesting to see what happens if he continues this until The winter transfer window.

    Some tweets showing how McClean-esque he truly is. We could do with a player like this in the Ireland squad.

    OK, let's not get ahead of ourselves - he's had a terrific start to his career at Portsmouth but will need to prove himself on a more long-term basis - and remember Eoin Doyle and Paddy Madden looked too good for League One for a while. So it's probably best that he focus on playing the full season and trying to help Portsmouth gain promotion - I know it's early days, but they are in an automatic promotion position so it looks like they're going to make a big push this season. At 22 years of age, he still has time on his side

    On a side-note, he will be joined by Joe Mason, who has gone to Portsmouth on loan: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45375899

    I think Curtis is a much better player than those players. For starters anyway, he's a much better athlete than both.

    I do get your point but if he gets up a level then he's in good shape to contribute to our qualifiers in 2019, moreso than he would if he were coming into the squad off the back of a season in League One.

    How Portsmouth got the buzz back after years of misery

    Curtis praised here. And Chris Coleman is his godfather?

    Scored a great goal today in front of an audience that included Mick McCarthy.

    Had a look on Twitter and it appears the consensus is that he played brilliantly. There's also a consensus that he's a wind-up merchant in quite an aggressive manner.

    A snarling, aggressive, left-footed, well-built, blonde lad that played for Derry City?
