“There it is the final whistle. Portsmouth fans invade the Fratton Park pitch, there where three roves there's now none, everyone has streamed onto the pitch amazing! Portsmouth are safe!”
I feel it's time we had a bit of optimism so here is part one of three to show you how Pompey will survive! I know you want to believe that will survive! You know how I know? Because this article will go to number one on NewsNow. Just because of the Optimistic title.
West Brom versus Man United; West Brom know that a result against united and results going the right way will see them seven points clear. They start brightly but end up giving away two goals towards the end of the game. Fans listen to there radio's with fingers crossed awaiting the results of other important games.
Birmingham versus Tottenham; Birmingham start well, knowing that this is a huge game for them as a win would take them out of the bottom three. Although having a bright start they fail to break the deadline and the game finishes 0-0. Birmingham having created by far the more chances go away feeling downhearted.
West Ham versus POMPEY; Portsmouth fans are in great voice as “play up Pompey” bellows out over “I'm forever blowing bubbles.” West Ham start brightly putting Pompey under lots of pressure this is despite the fact that they have rested several key players. Portsmouth score in the 80th minute a fantastic run from Lua Lua results in Anton Ferdinand bringing down the Portsmouth striker. Up steps Benjani, Portsmouth fans sit down as soon as they realise who is taking it. Benjani shoots and Benjani misses but is on hand to put in the re-bound. The Stewards are trying to contain the Portsmouth fans but end up covering their ears. “WE ARE STAYING UP! SAY WE ARE STAYING UP!”
Sunderland lose to Bolton.
Chelsea smash Fulham.
West Brom----- 27
Portsmouth versus Arsenal; Portsmouth start the game knowing that a win will put them level on points with West Brom at least until Monday night. The Pompey fans are in full voice because a defeat could also mean a six point gap come Monday night. Pompey start well and Benjani scores for the second time in two weeks! Pompey start the second half how they started the first however the rested substitute Henry comes onto the pitch. (after getting a good reception while warming up.) He is soon causing Karadas problems (playing due to an injury in the West Ham match to Linvoy.) A corner in the remaining few minutes and a Henry cross results in a Sol Campbell header flying past a stranded Kiely. The final whistle blows but Portsmouth know that a point is a point closer to safety.
Manchester United versus Birmingham; Birmgham know that a win at Man United would see them climb out of the relegation zone with a game in hand! It goes horrible wrong for the midlands team however as Rudd steals the show with two goals to go with Rooney's opener. Fans ring up 606 voicing there concern with many saying Bruce must leave whatever happens in the remaining (8 games)
Tottenham versus West Brom; West Brom fans travelled in small numbers and see a solid first half display where Tottenham look ordinary. The second half restarts and sees a wonder goal from Robbie Keane from atleast twenty five yards. West Brom don't give up however and keep posing questions of the Tottenham defence but to no prevail.
Sunderland draw against Blackburn
Aston Villa beat Fulham
West Brom--- 27
