'Arry in danger of missing Chelski game?

'Arry in danger of missing Chelski game?

We all hoped that the benefits of our summer tour to African would be worth it, and luckily on the whole we have been ok, but one man - and one of the most important - could have been struck down by a virus picked up in Africa and this might see him miss out on our season opener against Chelski on Sunday...

This man is Harry Redknapp!

The Pompey boss has been struggling with a virus and that infamous old favourite 'a source' close to Pompey has told The Daily Express: 'Harry is not very well at all. He has not been in all week and he is struggling.

'He has not been able to come into the training ground, which is very unlike him.'

This explains why we have heard so little from Redknapp the past few days, which is unusual.

If we had to go to Stamford Bridge without Redknapp it would be a major blow as he is so important to us, even if he usually does send us into these types of games with no expectations and plays down our chances...

Best of luck to him! Hope he recovers on time. Would be a shame if he wasn't at the bridge for the opener

It was said he was not well at Wembley & stayed seated because the virus gave him dizzy spells, lets hope time is a healer, Harry wont miss it if he can help it.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
