'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Harry On Survival


In the Premiership a couple of season ago we mounted a survival charge in the run-in and Redknapp is looking for more of the same:

'We picked up 22 points from the last 10 games and moved up from 18th to finish mid-table in our first Premiership season,' said the Pompey boss.

'We can do something similar again. And we won't give it up. All we need is for the team to keep fighting on the pitch and to make things go our way for a change.

'We've got West Ham at Upton Park next and three more points there will set us up nicely. It is a crunch game but then again all the games left are going to be like cup finals.

'If we had lost against City I think our relegation fight would have been all over, but now we have a big chance of staying in there. It keeps us going.'

He has every reason to believe!

I can't help feeling that Portsmouth are trying to change too much of the squad too soon. They won't have time to gel before they're actually relegated. That said, if they can hold on to the good players, they'll bounce straight back.

Do you think you can mount a charge again? Who have you got left to play? I don't think any team up to and including Villa are safe, if not for your great win at the weekend, I think you'd have been doomed, but now I guess you have been given a glimmer of hope. I was surprised how disorganised you looked v Villa the week before (and Villa weren't any/much better in truth) so to beat Man City was a good comeback. It wouldn't shock me to see Fulham pulled right into it, so you might just get lucky. Seems a very tall order though?
The Fear
The away form is the major worry now, we are starting to play some decent football in front of the home fans, but those 2 early away wins have petered right away with a string of successive defeats - possibly 9. That being the case a major form reversal is required and results elsewhere also need to go our way. The chances are no better than 1 in 5 of survival. A win at West Ham is a must - let's hope they are tired after mid-week FA Cup duty, but with Arsenal following it doesn't get any easier.

With Arsenal our next home fixture the good news is they may, only may rest players for the all important match against Juventus 3 days later. The bad news is Sol Campbell and Van Persie are due back.

Arsenal probably won't field a much weakened team. We can't rely on Champions League qualification by winning it - we still need that 4th spot!
