Charlie Adam has admitted in his post-match interview that manager Ian Holloway was right to give him and his team mate's a half time bollocking in Saturday's game at Cardiff.
The Seasiders went in at the break a goal down, but it was his players' abject performance that annoyed Holloway, and he let them know it with a fifteen minute tirade that rattled the eardrums.
'It is a good point in the end but in the first half we never got started, and the way we played was very disappointing,' Adam said.
'We can't make excuses - the first half just wasn't good enough.
'Cardiff is a tough place to come. They are doing well and we'd have taken a point before the match, so in that respect we've done well.
'But the first half was poor and the manager was quite right to give us a rollicking. He was honest enough to tell us that we weren't good enough.'
With Holloway's words ringing in their ears, it took the 'Pool just twenty eight seconds of the second half to level the match.
As you know, Adam got the goal after a slick move, and it was certainly one that he was very happy with:
'It was a terrific move for the goal and it is something we need to do more of.
'I gave their keeper [David Marshall] the eyes for the finish. He said to me after the game that he tried to read me.
'I thought about putting it in the other corner but luckily enough it went in the back of the net.'
Despite being happy with a point all told, like Holloway, Adam was a tad disappointed that the Seasiders didn't come home with all three:
'The second half was more like us and I thought we might have nicked it. We would have done but for a few unbelievable saves by their keeper.
'Cardiff's new stadium is a fantastic place to play and for us to get a point here was good, but in the end we are a bit disappointed not to have taken all three.'
