Talking Pompey with UKTony
Vital Pompey has previously brought you the 'knowing me knowing you series' - which is still running, so others will be added and if you want to do one just email - now we have a little something extra this summer...
UKTony was asked 5 quick questions, this is what they said.
It would be nice to say "more of the same" but more pragmatically, I'd like everyone to play to their potential and for the team as a whole to play attractive football. A top 10 finish would be nice plus decent progress in each cup. What I'd really like, but don't expect to get, is a recognition from the media that we are a consistent threat to "the big four" rather than "a team who did rather well last year".
Huge fan. Like cup matches, it's a chance to pit your wits against someone different and enjoy the possibility of saying "I was there". I reckon we'll get as far as the group stages; anything beyond that will be a pleasant surprise.
Dunne; I think we need to be realistic about Sol Campbell's chances of lasting a whole season. Someone up front to partner Defoe. Crouch keeps being mentioned and I think he'd do well if we got SWP as well.
Utaka - no question. A constant disappointment.
I reckon 15 ish home league games plus Arsenal and Fulham away (family ticketing arrangements permitting). At least one UEFA game (2 if we are at home in the first match) plus perhaps 2-3 others. Say about 20 in total? More if finances, timings and the wife allow.
Thanks to UKTony for answering these.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
