One player does not make a team, so with Manyoo having Ronaldo miss the charity shield on Sunday this did not mean that we would win it, but it gave us a hell of a chance... We must fancy it even more now with the news that Wayne Rooney will also sit out the seasons curtain raiser!
He has become a casualty of the Manyoo visit to South Africa, as it is said he picked up a virus whilst out there.
Manyoo still have a squad packed full of world class talent but if we wanted any more incentive to just go for it and look to win this is it as without these two they have lost a lot of quality.
I was looking forward to the game before, but I am looking forward to it even more now and have even more belief that we can win, although I always believe we will win a game no matter what - not that I am under the impression that we can just 'turn up and win it' now, as it does not work like that, but we have a cracking chance!
Speaking of Ronaldo I just noticed a little something on t'internet that 'claims' the Brazilian Ronaldo could be tempted to chance his arm in the English game, with Pompey being one of the teams after him following his release by Milan.
I would be very surprised if we did make an approach for him for a number of reasons, wages, fitness, the fact that he would expect to play week in week out when he would not etc. but it is amazing to think that we can be linked with players of his stature, even if he has become a fallen football superstar. What is more we can be 'linked' - no matter how untrue it might be - and think 'we do not need him'...
Who would have thought that possible a few years back eh!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
