Academy off on their own European tour

Academy off on their own European tour

The academy side is something that more and more of us are paying special attention to these days - particularly as we are building something worthy of the name.

It is not just the senior side that are off on a European tour next season, the academy side are off to Denmark for their pre-season and will take on a couple of Danish sides and a Swedish one too.

This is the schedule for Ian Woan's youngsters this summer as detailed on the Pompey Site...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

On this day in history...29th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
