Sill a great team. Kanu on the bench, lets see if he can change the game! Nugent to shine?!
pompey4me
maybe just a shame about no apeaance for cranie...
pompeycarpet
and sadley, i dont think 4-5-1 suits nugent.
pompeycarpet
certainly is a decent side, still fancy the 2-0 win myself :-)
pompeyrug
me too Rug.
pompey4me
i wouldnt say i was quite so confident. its a good side, but i think west ham will be really up for the game.
pompeycarpet
Carps, you nnever think Pompey are gonna win!! lol
pompey4me
I think if we come away with draw it's a good result. Glad he has rested Diarra. Happy for him to be pampered until the final. I like Arnold on the right side of midfield. Burst those bubbles.
storagematt
whereas i always think we will :-)
ive got my money where my mouth is tonight, money on us to win... also got money on nuge to score the first goal in a 2-0 win - come on daddy needs a new pair of shoes...actually forget the shoes daddy need to put money towards his final ticket and/or pay off his season ticket bill...
pompeyrug
I rang ticket master yesterday, as the expected email to confirm that I had purchased my season ticket, in full, hadn't arrivred? They also confirmed that they hadn't taken the money either!?! Though they have my details for processing! They will get round to it!
storagematt
Ferdinand is fouling Nugent already!
storagematt
2 attempts each on goal already. Only 7 mins played. End to end stuff.
storagematt
thats why ive never really fancied zamora fellas...
pompeyrug
Hello, anybody?
storagematt
Should be 1 down now.
pompey4me
Hi Rug.
storagematt
hello matt, hows it going mate... nugent was close then!
pompeyrug
Ok mate. I'll email you some of my Wembley pics. Fantastic day. Now for the real thing come May 17th. Dragon slaying day.
storagematt
i look forward to seeing them - i wish that i had taken more pictures than i had tbh... yep dragon slaying day indeed.
pompeyrug
Ok, I'm back on!
pompey4me
I'm having trouble posting on the front page.
pompey4me
Even if they appear back to front! Ello Matt
pompey4me
Shots raining from the boys in blue now. Just finding our range.
storagematt
Hi P4M.
storagematt
Mark Mudie (bluuuurgh!) Saying Nugent doing brilliant up front
pompey4me
we'll do these fellas!
pompeyrug
nugent is like bloody bambi on ice sometimes isnt he...
pompeyrug
Chelsea 1 up. Liv-Arse 1-1. Blackpool lead WBA 1-0. Now there is familiar scoreline.
storagematt
phew, that is why i had ashton as the man to watch...
pompeyrug
HT 0-0. 6 shots each on target according to the beeb.
storagematt
good solid half again by us - the pitch was much better than on saturday, and we did some nice passing too. mendes looked good, nugent looked good, so did johnson an mvuemba... but i still dont think we will win ;-)
pompeycarpet
BUT, our set peices are still awfull...
pompeycarpet
0-0 at half time will do. Now lets turn it up!
eastneydave
Amazing that carps, why can we still not lift a dead ball?
pompey4me
Keep up the commentry lads, you're doing a fine job. Sounds fairly even by what you're saying
pentonpompey
Hi fellas, didn't realse itwould be qite so busy on here tonight. ugent is looking a bit lost upfront by himself tonight, but at leastwe really started to get into the game towards the end of the half, even if Green was not troubled.
sneakay
away games that people dont go to do get busy on here mate, glad you joined us too.
pompeyrug
Hate listening on the wireless (as my gran calls it!)
pompey4me
Boa Morte seems to be involved in the getting & giving 'fouls'.
storagematt
Come on lads!
pompey4me
so close... it wasnt to be as nugent will open the scoring!
pompeyrug
Other great news is that Wednesday are 2-0 up! :)
sneakay
come on pompey weve got these if we want them...
pompeyrug
Are we struggling lads?, or putting up a show?
pentonpompey
Another wasted corner. Oh no here come their subs. Well 1 for now. Young Freddie Sears is on for Zamora.
storagematt
get in there, you beauty kranjcar!
pompeyrug
Running a couple of mins behind! GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL! Lovely strike - great passing around to create the chance 1-0 pompey! Blue Army! Blue Army!
sneakay
Niko, super Niko. 25 yarder.
storagematt
YES!!
pompey4me
YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
pentonpompey
Some of the best football for weeks say the quay.
pompey4me
One for nugent would be good. Sounds like he's doing well.
pompey4me
i think he deserves a goal tonight you know - he's worked really hard.
pompeyrug
pompey4me - he is chasing well but not really getting much out of the game. Goal from Kranji as lovely. We are passing like Arsenal at times - really fluid
sneakay
Not to be tonight for 'The Nuge' he's off for King Kanu
pompey4me
sneakay, the quay say he's been terrific tonight, think sky might be showing highlights tonight.
pompey4me
Kanu on for Nugent.
storagematt
Torres puts Liverpool 2-1 up.
storagematt
I'll keep my thoughts about Kanu to myself, Nuge sounded ok though...Good
pentonpompey
Jamo sounds like he's having a few 'moments'?
pompey4me
Ashton misses 6 yards out. Hold the line boys.
storagematt
That was a complete moment by Jamo - any other strikr would have trailed a leg to get a pen!
sneakay
Penalty scousers now
pompey4me
Good game at liverpool! (sorry off topic)
pompey4me
Panic time the last 10 mins. Hang in there lads.
storagematt
Hughsie on for Mendes. Stay solid lads.
storagematt
pmpey4me. I am watching the sky coverage (cant tell you how hey rug :) ) Think the quay might be being a bit generous. 1 shot (fairly good) and a lot of chasin but not much else.
sneakay
Arsenal score 2-2. They lead on the away goals.
storagematt
Liverpool 2 - Arsenal 2
sneakay
Cheers sneakay, will look at the highs later. I've never agreed with a thing Mudie has ever said anyways!
pompey4me
Sweaky botty time, last 5 mins.
storagematt
Come on lads, one more goal for my prediction league!
pompey4me
haha pompey are da best!!! :)
ozzypayne
Let's hang on first. Shouting later.
storagematt
Liverpool 3 - Arsenal 2 - What a game that sounds like
sneakay
Liverpool 4 Arsenal 2, it's a great game sneakay
pompey4me
How many extra minutes?
storagematt
I do love Jamo- but I sometimes wish we could attach a bungee to his back and the goal to stop him giving me heart attacks!
sneakay
Play up Pompey...Pompey Play Up!
pompey4me
Get in there..Blue Army..Blue Army..Blue Army
pompey4me
Into the 3rd minute. How much longer?
storagematt
No worries. 1 nil to the super Pompey. I hate to think what we would have done if our 1st team had turned up. LOL.
storagematt
Goodnite lads, off to see what I can find on sky.
storagematt
I just simply think 'arry is fantastic, and should be given the keys to the city! Lets sing it loud and proud saturday, HARRY REDKNAPPS BLUE AND WHITE ARMY, HARRY REDKNAPPS BLUE AND WHITE ARMY
pompey4me
well, we out played them, and controlled the game. they were slow, couldnt match our [albeit sporadic] flowing 1-touch stuff - we deserved to win. nugent is woking hard, although he doesnt suit the 1 up front position. mvuemba looked better than diop out wide - although the two kept swapping around and interlinking with eachother. generally a good, solid performance, although the defence looked a little stiff at times.
pompeycarpet
So that means i can go to work jubillant and take the preverbial out of our plasterer, who's gone up tonight and will have had his bubbles burst!!!!!!!Play up Pompey
pentonpompey
Get in .... Pompey score first .. we don't lose .. I love having that record
Chix
Yes it is a great record OK. Now let's hunt down fifth place!!
eastneydave
absolutely dave, i still think we can get 5th, it might be alot to ask but if we win all 5 of our games we will finish 5th - and i think we can win all 5... being really, really optimistic you could say that 15pts 'could' see us finish 4th if liverpool slip up, but that wont happen, 5th will do me but i will happily take 6th or even 7th so long as we win the cup...
