Teams - Preston v Pompey

This is the Preston line up:

Andy Lonergan
Billy Jones
Youl Mawene
Liam Chilvers
Callum Davidson
Chris Sedgwick
Paul McKenna
Darren Carter
Simon Whaley
Chris Brown
Karl Hawley


Substitutes
Grzegorz Szamotulski
Richard Chaplow
Brett Ormerod
Matthew Hill
Neil Mellor


Glen Johnson returned in place of Lauren - who dropped to the bench, and with Noe Pamarot injured Sylvain Distin returned. Hermann Hreidarsson retained his place, so Lucien Aubey had to be content with a place on the bench. Richard Hughes also dropped to the bench as Sulley Muntari made his return after the African nations. Milan Baros was another to drop to the bench and Jermain Defoe was cup-tied so in came John Utaka and Kanu. Sadly Dave Nugent was not fit enough for a place on the bench against his former side.

So we line up like this:

David James
Glen Johnson
Sol Campbell
Sylvain Distin
Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Lassana Diarra
Papa Bouba Diop
Sulley Muntari
Niko Kranjcar
Kanu


Substitutes
Jamie Ashdown
Lucien Aubey
Lauren
Milan Baros
Richard Hughes

its almost time fellas - play up pompey!
pompeyrug
Arrrrgh, Kanu up front on his own from the start?? Still, we may have the midfield to run past him now with Sulley and Diarra in.
pompey4me
Come on you Blues - just off out to watch game. Hopefully next time you hear from me we will be in Round 6.
eastneydave
Oi, oi - I'm in the bedroom on the dodgy Sky link - Stella No1 in hand, number two already opened and it's off we go ... Wemb-er-ly, Wemb-er-ly, we're the famous Portsmouth FC and were going to Wemb-er-ly, Wemb-er-ly, Come on youuu blues ....
Chix
good work chix...
pompeyrug
so is it kanu and utaka up top together or is it kanu on his own? surely not...
pompeyrug
kanu on his own so far.
pompey4me
utaka 'seems' to be offering him support so far...
pompeyrug
when he gave away the needless corner i think papa smurf thought he was shooting then didnt he...
pompeyrug
Doing alright fellas ... we're knocking the ball around well and just waiting for a chance to find a runner... Utaka and Krunchie need to cut inside more when Kanu is holding the ball up ..
Chix
utaka seems to be playing in a free role as he's poping up on the left and right...
pompeyrug
.... just wish he'd pop up on the end of a cross.... WIFE... I'm out of Stella....
Chix
kanu is holding the ball up well but as he isnt mobile enough we arent really getting anyone in the box - kranchie's ball in early was fantastic, but his lack of mobility saw it wasted... so far so good tho...
pompeyrug
??Yep i'm happy so far, Rug... Off for a fag and some more supplies... Back soon...
Chix
i would have been happier had krunchie tucked that header away... t'was a good chance...
pompeyrug
't'was' ... meethinks thy Landlord hast gone all Shakepereian on thee !!
Chix
i bite my thumb as thee...
pompeyrug
Good effort Munners..
Chix
munarti is gonna hit this... he did you know!
pompeyrug
Munters, great free kick great save.
pompey4me
Score in a minute… we’re gonna score in a minute… Score in a minute… we’re gonna score in a minute…
Chix
yep, he certainly did... he'll try it again wont he?
pompeyrug
...score in a minute... were gonna score in a minute!
pompeyrug
and that could have been it then through the herminator - the pressure has been cracnked up...
pompeyrug
typical papa smurf eh - even if it wouldnt have counted...
pompeyrug
To me we have to get all the midfield busy, Diop, Diarra and Muntari have been quiet by thier standards
pompey4me
i think 'arry will be happy enough at the moment wont he, but as you say mate maybe the midfield need to offer alittle more...
pompeyrug
C'mon chaps, make the class tell & win it in the 2nd half.
storagematt
Yep, i expect 'arry will be happy enough, but i bet he'd rather win today to avoid a replay, so, how do we score the goal? Kanu is dropping very very deep, so the midfield HAVE to get past him for him to thread the ball through.
pompey4me
afternoon matt - yep, if we keep up the pressure that was bulding we'll score sooner or later...
pompeyrug
how do we score? leave it 10 mins or so if we dont get the breakthrough i say get baros on...
pompeyrug
for who? take kanu off so it's still 1 up front, or take a midfielder off to go 442?
pompey4me
keep 2 up... if needed kanu off utaka alongside baros?
pompeyrug
we should get through. oh and please can jamie redknapp be our manager one day? he seems to know exactly what we need to do, and just everything about us, even for someone whos dad manages us..
jbaker
oh and scummer on the bench!
jbaker
Any subs ?....... Nope not yet... So the midfield do need to get forward more .... but as Preston press we'll get more space to break ... They look a bit more fired up .. team hug !!
Chix
afternoon bakes... as i was that defoe would one day sign, ive been convinced that jamie will work alongside 'arry before he quits, to then take over when he does eventually leave - i think jamie talks a good game and would be a good manager.
pompeyrug
duno mate, he's got it easy in tvland hasnt he? bit like shearer
pompey4me
papa put in a fantastic ball then... see with 2 up top he would have been there... good start tho to the half.
pompeyrug
he'll work alongside 'arry mark my words :-)
pompeyrug
We need Baros on... Somebody to get on the end of what's being created and SCORE
Chix
Diop off, Baros on 442
pompey4me
yep.. I'd agree 4me..
Chix
i think i'd second that tbh.
pompeyrug
Pompey 0, Stella comsumption 5
Chix
papa's ball across was crying out for someone like baros on the end wasnt it...
pompeyrug
it'll be 1-5... or 1-6 shortly...
pompeyrug
Hmmmm chix, 4 me it's been 2xbuds, 2x carlsberg
pompey4me
.........probably!
pompey4me
im on a coffee and a muffin at the moment but have been eyeing up the carling i have...
pompeyrug
***** !
Chix
bugger... come on jamo!
pompeyrug
Englands, Englands, No.1… Englands, No.1…
Chix
thats why he's the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pompeyrug
i called it as i watched - and he listened!
pompeyrug
Englands no.1.....put my article in Rug!
pompey4me
Right, been saved, now we have to re-group and push on
pompey4me
thought was going to be another then... yep, it'll be on later tonight mate.
pompeyrug
Quashie..Quashie..Quashie..
Chix
Utaka is losinfg the ball a lot
pompey4me
5 more minutes - max - to regroup then a chance must be made...
pompeyrug
were hanging on at the mo fellas...
pompeyrug
come on 'arry make a change now...
pompeyrug
Last 15 or so ... Come on Pompey.... We need to score...
Chix
what a save again....
pompeyrug
Milan,,, we’ve another Milan … we’ve another Milan …
Chix
Rug your on 666 points again... say something quick !
Chix
Munners off, you can never 2nd guess 'arry, can you!
pompey4me
You're the devil in disguise oh yes you are!
pompey4me
not again... i hate the number of the beast!
pompeyrug
phew - im saved, baros the match winner?
pompeyrug
can we do it fellas or will it go to a replay, or will preston win it?
pompeyrug
Got to raise our game if we are to score.
pompey4me
Dont think anyones gonna score today.
pompey4me
thats the thing with baros - he keeps his head down too much, if he'd looked up he could have passed or had a shot quicker...
pompeyrug
He aint looking for a pass....is he! Think its gonna be another expensive night for ma down at fratton.
pompey4me
Scummer… Scummer… Scummer… Scummer…
Chix
Oh no it's not..whoops......
Chix
We are under pressure here
pompey4me
looks like it, £25 a ticket for adults?
pompeyrug
We don't deserve anything from this. Absolutely diabolical.
stillthewhizz

pompeyrug
Score in a minute… we’re gonna score in a minute… Score in a minute… we’re gonna score in a minute… ...
Chix

Chix
Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, we’re going to Wem-ber-ley, Que sera, sera
Chix
Well, we always used to lose in the last few mins when i was a kid so i knoe how pne feel!
pompey4me
Bring on the Chelsea…. Bring on the Chelsea
Chix
Thank 'arry for Jamo!
pompey4me
Didn't deserve that all. Two games in a row we've stolen a win. Great resilience but not the way I like to win. Hopefully this is enough to shake things up with Harry. We've been poor for three months now.
stillthewhizz
We shall not, we shall not be moved… We shall not, we shall not be moved… and like a tree that’s standing by the waterside….. we shall not be moved…
Chix
Whizz.. you are right but I don't care..we’re the famous Portsmouth FC and we’re going to Wem-ber-ley….. Wem-ber-ley, Wem-ber-ley…
Chix
agree still thewhizz, we havent had many good games since newcastle, yet we've won most of them! handball by someone in that box, but at least we're through!
jbaker
Wife just salivating over a topless Jamo!
pompey4me
Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!
storagematt
TBH, wouldnt have taken a draw before the game. Maybe this is the start of that little bit of luck they talk about that you need to win the cup.
pompey4me
And this should make 100
pompey4me
Preston 0 pompey 1.. Stella comsuption 7.. spelling ability nil..
Chix
All I have to say is...We’re gonna win the cup, we’re gonna win the cup, and now you’re gonna believe us … and now you’re gonna believe us…. and now you’re gonna believe ussssss…. we’re gonna win the cup
Chix

stillthewhizz

pompey4me
Hey, me too whizz, but o think you said you sit south upper? I sit family section south lower! Last year my kids used to say Dad, be quiet, but they are used to it now!
pompey4me
An absolute cakewalk wasn't it :-) Thank god for Jamo - how can a team play that well in the first half and so poorly in the second?
eastneydave
search me dave - im just buzzing that we won and we are no just 1 game away from the 1st of 2 wembley appearances this season...
pompeyrug
We win ugly again but when reality kicks in, we have to play better. Now for the draw. Home to Bristol Rovers or Cardiff please.
