Pompey will kick off the 2008/09 season with 4pts out of the opening 9 available, not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompey4me's poll are fair enough - although given my positive, some might say 'blinkered' thinking, most of the time I reckon we will get more!
We open the new season with a trip to Chelski, followed by Manyoo at Fratton then Everton away, so to get 4 out of 9pts would not represent a bad return really would it as that would mean 1 defeat from 3, so looking at who we face would you really be that disappointed with a return like that?
I am not expecting this to happen, but do feel that we can achieve an unbeaten start.
We are owed something at Chelski, so if we play as well as we did this season at Stamford Bridge as we did the last then we can get at least a point, I reckon we can win but then again I might be overly optimistic... Manyoo never like coming to our place, so why should we not pick up all 3pts from that, a point minimum must has to be the target! If we want to achieve a higher league position this time round than we did the last we must start beating the sides in and around us regularly, so going to Everton and winning would be a good start!
Yep, there is no reason why we should not come out of these games unbeaten, if we believe we can get something from Chelski we can - our problem against the likes of Chelski however is that we often go in with the mentality of 'no one expects us to get anything, so if we pick up something it is a bonus', maybe so but this kind of thinking is not what I want us to have, and to be honest why should we?
All this said I would not be unhappy with 4pts, but my own target will be at least 5pts from the opening 9 on offer...
What the poll asked - Tough start, Chelski (a) Man U (h) Everton (a). How many points will we get from these 3?
How you voted - 4 22%, 9 18%, 2 16%, 3 13%, 0 11%, 1 8%, 5 7%, 6 3%, 7 2%
Current Poll - A lot of opinions have been shared on who disappointed last season, particularly in the past week of so with the 'talking to' series.
But just who did disappoint the most last season from those that arrived - this is what pentonpompey wants to know with this - 'Most disappointing signing of 2007/8?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
