I wonder what's up with Krunchie? And I hope Tony made the right decision with Diop on the right instead of the revitalised Utaka. We may miss Sol as well, although he does get turned around a bit more than he used to these days, he's still a powerful, solid influence at the back. C'mon .... Play Up Pompey!
tracyc
Just seen the other article & why Utaka isn't playing - he has the runs! That's so funny! Who'd have thought he could get that!
tracyc
nugent on the bench? bring it on...
jbaker
i guess it must be an injury in training or illness or krunchie to miss out entirely... nugent back on the bench too - lets just hope that papa boobup diop doesnt complete a hat-trick of penalties conceded!
pompeyrug
we must have typed at the same time bakes...
pompeyrug
Ouch, no Niko. He scored the winner back in April. Go on Pompwy nail the hammers. Put a big smile on our faces.
storagematt
evening all, just turned on the telebox and waiting for the game to start, will be here all game, not sure if there is a delay, but it is a satellite connection so should be good
harrissman
Utaka is obviously not fit enough but what about Krunchie?
eastneydave
still waiting to find out what the deal is with krunchie... afternoon harrissman, looking forward to your report later.
pompeyrug
I'm still bl00dy painting, nearly done, so I'll be in & out all afternoon. My heart is ruling my head & Pompey to win 3-1.
storagematt
Hi all .. Pamarot rather than Armand ... Playing a straight lined back four then.. I can see the back line pushing up and holding on the centre circle a lot today .. it'll alos give Dist room to catch Belamy or Cole if they do play through us .. expected Tony tactics.. but they work it done right... Bring it on Pompey but beware the first 15 inutes West Ham are gonna come out FAST .. Let's not get caught out this week
Chix
pompey to kick off
harrissman
ankle injury for krunchie....
pompeyrug
Again, hope it's not the same ankle Rug
harrissman
pamarot is a solid defender, but would prefer traore in at left back tbh... surprise, surprise less than 5 mins in and we hear the words 'poor touch from diop'...
pompeyrug
just a 'knock' they say...
pompeyrug
Wigan 1 up at Barcodes.
storagematt
Manc 1 Stoke 0.
storagematt
barcodes could seriously go down i reckon...
pompeyrug
as long as he stays out of our area Rug
harrissman
i would prefer him to stay off the pitch :-) but there you go...
pompeyrug
West Ham 4-5-1 according to the Quay.. No wat with Cole, Bellamy and Sears in the side.. it's a deep 4-3-3 ready to strike ... I'm sure Tony will see that ..
Chix
Sort it out Blues !...
Chix
under pressure already... like you said tho chixy they will start fast.
pompeyrug
should have been a pen to west ham there
harrissman
weather the storm - thats what we must do!
pompeyrug
United One up at Stoke - Ronaldo !
Chix
anything but a win for manyoo today would be amazing tbh...
pompeyrug
There front three sound really fluid.. crossing over all over the place.. Diarra & Davis need to hold that middle and cut the supply to them ..
Chix
Scum 1 down.
storagematt
Afternoon all - just catching up
UKTony
Keep it tight in first 20 mins and I'll feel a lot better
UKTony
Good effort from JD from a ball front Johnno ...
Chix
your right there chix, diarra quite so far.
harrissman
Are Scummers in the bottom three ? - Hi Tony ..
Chix
i think they're kept out of it by watford?
pompeyrug
Diarra down. look in trouble
harrissman
I've so far found the Man U & Arsenal games live, foreign commentries.
storagematt
arf'noon tony - well we are 15 mins or so in...
pompeyrug
looks in pain, struggling to walk bad knock on the knee
harrissman
diarra always looks in trouble tho doesnt he... hopefully he will run it off tho.
pompeyrug
Diarra playing on.. hope he is ok... I'd rather he went off than aggrivate it further..
Chix
Diarra's weak spot.
storagematt
Scum 2 down. hahaha.
storagematt
Diarra's going off looks like
harrissman
diarra's done!
pompeyrug
I think Scum will be in the bottom three after today.. oh Diarra going off.. who is one ? Traore! ... Gotta got with Diop in the middle...
Chix
get mvuemba on and move boobup diop inside - either way he will go into the middle, which isnt a bad thing, clearly losing diarra is tho!
pompeyrug
traore it is...
pompeyrug
Villa miss penalty. Saved by keeper.
storagematt
Traore on for Diarra, you can see Tony adams telling him and belhadj to keep swapping
harrissman
not a bad ply is it - others do it so why not...
pompeyrug
Yep Diop in the middle .. Traore on the left Belhadj on the right ?
Chix
I think belhadj can play either side, he is really quite skillful
harrissman
Scum 1-2 now.
storagematt
25 mins gone and the Upton Park crowd getting restless already... Jeez what do they expect ... They'll be booing by half time..
Chix
good swift break by pompey.
pompeyrug
is that scum 2-1 up or 2-1 down? the longer we can keep them out the more restless the fans will get...
pompeyrug
Come on you blues.... pop one in before half time... but keep it tight at all costs..
Chix
Diarra will be a big miss but he has weak ankles. Come on Pompey!!
eastneydave
all helps pompey tbf
harrissman
Agree HM the more restless they are the better for us .. If we score their heads will surely drop the longer it goes on..
Chix
2-1 down rug .. to league leaders Wolves..
Chix
Fulham 1 Spurs 0
pompeyyong
traore is having a good game so far - positive, as he has been a bit quiet recently.
pompeyrug
Pompey applying some pressure just before the break.. but it's a pretty open game... and I'm still a little worried 'bout the width of Cole and movement of Sears.and Bellamy ........ Corner to Pompey .. Come Blues knock it in ..
Chix
i like that scoreline yong.
pompeyrug
come on Pompey sounds better now!
pompeyyong
Another wasted corner.......... oh we have another one .. Make them count Pompey... Keeper punches away.. What is it with us and corners !!
Chix
Fulham 1-0 Spuds.
storagematt
we have been poor on set peices as long as i can remember...
pompeyrug
Me too Rug
pompeyyong
Hi Yong... We doing ok at the mo.. but need to hit the back of the net .. we seem comfortable at 0-0... or maybe this is the patient Dutch way ... I'm not suure my nerves can take that ... Spuds one down !!
Chix
2nd time ive heard 'awful' or 'terrible' linked with boobup today...
pompeyrug
Sounds as if we don't want Half Time to come if West Ham have run out of ideas..
Chix
is pamarot committed, or should he be committed...
pompeyrug
He must be doing something right to get in ahead of Hermann.. but he still worries me.... COME ON YOU BLUES...
Chix
difficult or not he wouldnt have scored macca lol!
pompeyrug
Chix I'll be happy to score either side of half time to settle me down.
pompeyyong
Diop over the top of the again.. what happened to his promise of more goals this season.. more .. did I say more.. one would do ...
Chix
Man Utd 2 up
storagematt
Corner to WHU.. Keep it tight Pompey just before HT .. Ok well done blues cleared ..
Chix
Blackburn 1 Sund 0.
storagematt
Bellamy is giving Pamarot a torrid time... He's worrying me !
Chix
Scum down to 10 men Euell off straight red.
storagematt
would involve some switching around but perhaps pamarot off with mvuemba on in the not too distant future - just incase he gets sent off... traore could go to left back and mvuemba to play in right midfield?
pompeyrug
Diop just missed the ball and headed collins in the back of the head, who is still down
harrissman
Another corner .. that's our 5th .... and we are starting to use them a little better.. Half time 0-0 ... I'm happy with that but we will bneed to weather the storm again in the first 15 minutes of the second half.. I'm off for a fag !
Chix
0-0 half time. Just need to take chance second half.
eastneydave
and mark moudie has just said exactly what i did!
pompeyrug
Chix Pamarot booked, maybee take him off & move Belhadj over to cover Bellamy & bring on Mvuemba or straight swop for Herman?
pompeyyong
Ok Collins is still down receiving medical treatment. at least we know now that Diop can connect to something with his head
harrissman
Sorry Rug so did I well almost, its my slow typing skill or rather lack of.
pompeyyong
sorry i missed the first half lads. can anyone see nuge coming on for crouchie? would be good to see him have another go...
jbaker
hello mate...
sadly if crouchy comes off i reckon it will be 'king' kanu coming on - like for like, with nuge only getting on for defoe... would be good to see him get a game, but next week against hull or the week after against blackburn is probably more likely...
pompeyrug
i will believe yoy yong - many wouldnt tho ;-)
pompeyrug
Just had a call from Ben Sahars mum who is disgusted that her son isn't on the bench .. she has threatened to sue us if Nugent gets a game... because her son is soo much better...
Chix
but nugent is dave 'da santos' nugent either is he - so it makes no odds...
pompeyrug
Second half.. any subs ? ... Nope.. but sears off for Sears.... now West Ham play 442 ...
Chix
yeah what happened to sahar? start of season i was excited, he looked a good prospect. then he got injured cos of a sprinkler and nothings happened since!
jbaker
You can stick your ******** bubbles up your arse !
Chix
oooh, so close defoe..
jbaker
belhadj has been to the boobup diop school of shooting!
pompeyrug
He took about 8 weeks to recover from it then played for Israel when he supposedly wasn't fit.. I don't think that went down too well to honest .... DEFOE !..........ohhhhhhhhh close..
Chix
thats more like it JD - more pressure like that.
pompeyrug
and again jd!
jbaker
defoe denied again - damn you green...
pompeyrug
Blackb 1 Sund 1. Man U 3 Stoke 0.
storagematt
Score in a minute... We've gonna score in a minute...
Chix
greens looking good in front of capello...
jbaker
If scores stay the same Spuds back in the bottom three !.. Shame..
Chix
Defoe going close again, he'll get one soon. Pretty please.
storagematt
Didn't realise Fabio was there bakes... Crouchy and Defoe could do with a goal.. Johnno seems to be playing well too ....
Chix
Phew .. that was close ! Bellamy hit the crossbar
Chix
according to bbc sport he is chix, but you never know. ohh we were lucky there!
jbaker
Pamarot is looking vunerable .. too vunerable...
Chix
ride the storm - then we will score...
pompeyrug
Sund 2-1 up at B'burn.
storagematt
My prediction of 4-2 doesn't look like happening now does it !...
Chix
Blackburn in a bit of a rut at the mo .. Hopefully stay that way for a couple of weeks yet ...
Chix
He's a young kid from France, who we've given a chance...
Chix
end to end stuff at the moment
harrissman
Ha. Nigel Quashie has been sent off for Birmingham.
storagematt
rug, how do you want me to post my match report?
harrissman
Hard to call innit HM... but we sound pretty tight at the back with Kaboul and Dist in the middle ....
Chix
Nigel Quashie sent of for Birmingham!!
eastneydave
i private messaged you earlier harrissman - can you email it through to me, i included that in the private message, or just click the envelope at the top of the page... if email is possible just private message it through to me.
pompeyrug
Have not herd much of Crouch yet maybe he will get the goal we need
pompeyyong
Kaboul having a good game chix
harrissman
sorry sky says it's not 2-1 but 1-1 Blackb - Sund
storagematt
jd again squanders a chance!
jbaker
Villa 1 up
storagematt
damn it, villa winning isnt what we want...
pompeyrug
Arsenal 0 Villa 1
pompeyyong
Fulham 2 Spuds 0. Great stuff.
storagematt
Fulham 2 Spurs 0
pompeyyong
fantastic! lets go on to win to make it a great day...
pompeyrug
oooh Villa .. maybe that top four will be breached this year...
Chix
i do like macca's commentary.
pompeyrug
See I told you my typing is slow ha ha
pompeyyong
said in the forum the other day that a top 4 breach is still on, and sadly arsenal could be the team to drop out - hence why it is so important that we make the most of the run-up to our game with them at the end of the year...
pompeyrug
Kanu coming on .. for crouchy I guess... all we need it one killer ball to release Defoe...
Chix
Sunderland are 2-1 up now.
storagematt
no action on the pompey bench yet
harrissman
Are you sure now matt ...
Chix
Yeah agree rug.. we nearly took them at the emirates a couple of years back and how good would it be for Tony to win there.... Traore won't be able to play though ...
Chix
I think Kanu's warm up has knackered him out !.
Chix
Or maybe not !.... Come on Kanu ..just one pass ..
Chix
Villa 2 up at Arsenal.
storagematt
Arsenal 0 Villa 2
pompeyyong
Fulham 2 spurs 1.
storagematt
Come on Pompey last ten.. make it count... a point is ok but a goal would be great for us ... Back to back wins and Hull up next...
Chix
Newc 1-1 wigan.
storagematt
Hope Spurs don't come back this week .. they'll start to think they're invincible ...
Chix
come on pompey - one final push...
pompeyrug
Come on Pompey.. KEEP IT TIGHT at the back... no silly decisions.. or tackles ... Diop!
Chix
Owen scores
pompeyyong
nooooooooooooooo - 3rd time for green...
pompeyrug
One killer ball from Kanu................ ohhhh so close .... lets' ahve another
Chix
defoe should have scored one of his chances today shouldnt he?
pompeyrug
Man Utd 4 up.
storagematt
This is real end to end stuff... I wonder what the corner count is ........ Five mins plus stoppages to go .. PLAY UP POMPEY ...
Chix
Percentages Rug Percentages.... what's jameo doing .. a mad moment !
Chix
0% today tho....
pompeyrug
So are we going to have any last minute glory/heartache???
storagematt
the kind of mad moment that capello wont want to see - nor do we!
pompeyrug
Newcastle 2-1 up now.
storagematt
Man Utd 5 up.
storagematt
We need to finish the stronger .. don't let them get their tails up... or it could be costly .. all it could take is a loose hand or foot or dive ... 2 minutes to go ...
Chix
Wigan 2-2.
storagematt
come on good delivery from this corner...... please!
pompeyrug
Another corner.... let's make this one count ........ please... on Diops head ...... not a hope ..
Chix
nope!
pompeyrug
Come on Belhadj one killer ball in the last minute.... come on Kanu.. ohno I think that's it..
Chix
spurs loose
pompeyyong
0-0. Just as we all predicted.
storagematt
0-0 Think we need to be happy with that a clean sheet and a point away from home... Unbeaten that's the main thing
Chix
5 minutes rug
harrissman
Byeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Thanks lads. See you for the home game with Hull.
storagematt
Settle for a point - still unbeaten against WesTam in the Premier League.
eastneydave
Sorry not taken too much of a role this afternoon but writing Toast for tomorrow, See ya!!
eastneydave
if you do not concede you will not lose - helps if you score tho :-) but im happy with the point and a cleansheet does me.
pompeyrug
hic! point away, thats good enough! hic....
