Break with Pompey tradition
Saturday sees Pompey looking for their first away win since the 4-1 defeat of Sunderland.
Traditionally Pompey under Redknapp lose nearly every away game, that tradition must change now.
If we to look for positives about the match with West Ham; surely the fact that they play Man City on Monday in a plum F.A cup tie means a few key players will be rested, maybe this will be pay back for how Swindon played their reserve team against west ham back in 1993, robbing Pompey of a chance of automatic promotion!
To win at the Boleyn, Pompey must play with the same vigor they've recently shown at home, how Redknapp will play it only he knows. Safety first is a non-starter now, we must attack from the off, I and most other fans would rather see Pompey lose 4-3 than a sober 1-0 result, at least it would show an intent rather than damage limitation.
Brian Priske couldn't have done his chances any harm against city. He showed a willingness to support the attack whenever possible and proved a fine right sided outlet.
Gary O'Neil has vowed to play on through the pain of his ankle, and the form of Mendes and the improvement of Sean Davis at last gives genuine midfield options.
Up front however we still look woefully short of goals, Benjani is crying out for a goal, Lua Lua needs to relocate his shooting boots, and maybe just maybe Todorov will get his chance against his former club. (Players always seem to score against old team mates.)
Play up Pompey
On Saturday, we may never have a better chance of a result against West Ham, the last time we managed so was August 31st 1987! So let's attack from the off and bag the points against a tired and distracted home team!
