...I think you made a mistake with the wolfsburg line up ;-) as for our line up... it looks like we will be playing the croatian style...
pompeycarpet
As long we play like Croatia of last year, no problem
paultsmouth
mvuemba on the right sounds good - he's been playing well when he's come on. davis and hughes will be solid, hopefully sol and distin will to. slight concern that Tony didnt pick crouch becuase he wanted to prove we play good football... but actually, I think that this is a way of playing that could work very well - and means that come west brom, we will still have at least one set of fresh legs!
pompeycarpet
Well the Wolfsburg manager was quoted as saying we play long balls up to Crouch for flick-ons, put him right didn't it?
paultsmouth
Strange one really. No height upfront at all, a bit like when England play
sneakay
Last time we made a dramatic change to formation in a cup match, I seem to remember beating Leeds 3-2 with Bradders and Svensson playing wide
paultsmouth
wow mvuemba actually given a start bout time really lol should be a good game lets just hope we get the 3 points and please don't make me sit on the edge of my seat again its agony lol
pompeym@

pompeycarpet

jbaker

pompeycarpet

stfc ballboy
thing is, wolfsburg have defo qualified. but havent lost at home since april!
jbaker
at least herenven are winning...
pompeycarpet
braga losing (get in)
jbaker
1-0 herenveen
pompeycarpet
gd old herenveen.Tell you what armand traore is great at attacking he is beating them all the time on the left.defoe has just nearly scored.Keep it up pompey + herenveen
stfc ballboy
Not sure I can take much more of this fellas
sneakay
neither side can defendc against a lone striker...
pompeycarpet
our goal difference is -3 at the moment and we are bottom :(
stfc ballboy
doesn't matter... if we beat herenveem we're through
pompeycarpet
unless braga win
pompeycarpet
they have an impressing right mid.He is doing belhadji all the time
stfc ballboy
which doesn't look so likely now it's 1-1 in holland
pompeycarpet
braga 1-1
paultsmouth
Lots of fans stuck outside the ground- don't know why
NorfolknBlue
but they have changed there right back now... who was a VERY good player...
pompeycarpet
braga scored
jbaker
Distin and Campbell having a mare
paultsmouth
let's just make it to half time...
pompeycarpet
They are ripping Belhadj and Traore appart
sneakay
but we're ripping them apart down that side too...
pompeycarpet
Anyone fancy match report?
paultsmouth
wolfsburg have free kick
stfc ballboy
I think Belhadj has to go off - He is having a total mare
sneakay
half time - thank the lord.
stfc ballboy
If only kaboul was fit enough to play i think we would be 2-0 up but campbell is so slow and there right mid is outstanding
stfc ballboy
stfc i think you are bang on- i would bring on the iceman take off hughes and go 442
plymouth graham
With Wolfsberg are going to play 1 upfront we should switch to 3-5-2 with Pamerot on and Crouch for Niko and Mvuemba
sneakay
bring on the ice man for belhadj that is
plymouth graham
i can see that too sneaky
plymouth graham
Right second half
Play Up Pompey!
sneakay
pamerot for belhadj... pamerot wasn;t great at the weekend... let's hope he improves!
pompeycarpet
blimey the net is in perfect sync with the radio! Amazing!
sneakay
Didn't last long though. lol
sneakay
Decent spot for the free kick
sneakay
kranjcar soo close!
pompeycarpet
o ffs why does pamarot play sorry people but this is the only person who i hate for portsmouth he is so rubbish not premiership standard. why dont he use hermann ?? come on adams
stfc ballboy
can someone explain the obsession with the dambusters theme tune... I just don't get it...
pompeycarpet
the iceman's too old and slow at least pamarot's physically good
pompey88
uh oh... braga winning
pompeycarpet
Bloody Braga
sneakay
dam come on herenveen
stfc ballboy
pamarot 2 gave ball away in gd areas
stfc ballboy
have to get crouchy on NOW
pompey88
mvuemba for crouch
stfc ballboy
good game from mvuemba, but someone had to go off. I'm a bit surpirsed hughes/davis didnt go off, and mvuemba mooved inside, and kranjcar roud to right mid though...
pompeycarpet
come on herenveen or pompey if we draw we need to beat herenvenn 6-0 to qulify
stfc ballboy
iv been told its not on goal difference stfc. thought it was on results vs. anyway, braga would be on 6, we would get a max on 5, so we need a win if braga win
jbaker
Not if Braga win we dont stfc. We have to win at the moment as results stand
sneakay
Need to win, simple as that, look nervy now though
paultsmouth
we're out
pompeycarpet
joke
pompey88
OH JAMO
sneakay
James****
paultsmouth
david james is a dick
stfc ballboy
WHAT THE F WAS HE DOING!
sneakay
why try to take it round the striker ? just a hoof would of done
stfc ballboy
kanu coming on
stfc ballboy
our back 5 has been awful this season... and this game in particular... david james made our first goal, so we can't complain to much can we?
pompeycarpet
3-5-2 finally. Why are the players not trying to tackle?
sneakay
Pompey pulling out of 50-50s
paultsmouth
Saved!!!
sneakay
Penalty
sneakay
penalty campbell is *****
stfc ballboy
Now get up the other end!!
paultsmouth
well done james that makes up for your mistake
stfc ballboy
sort of makes up. we still need two goals...
jbaker
Its official, we don't travel in Europe
paultsmouth
Not looking like we will score
sneakay
individual errors are costing us all the time when will they ever learn
pompey88
yh we are out now. Have to do well this season to get in europe again next season.Metgod / adams sort that defence out
stfc ballboy
i have a question for you all. Why does david james never kick the ball out of his hands ?
stfc ballboy
Down to 10 and out of it
paultsmouth
Very cheap goals will cost us, but we can still be proud that we played so well with AC Milan!
sneakay
Traore has pulled his hamstring this night goes from bad to worse
stfc ballboy
1 pt from 3 games says it all though
paultsmouth
It's all over. Oh well.
sneakay
What a load of rubbish we should have got through in this group but we through so many points away its unbelievable just like the premiership.I just hope this spell dont continue.Fingers crossed for saturday.SORT IT OUT
stfc ballboy
Been watching your comments and trying to keep teams updated pick up wife and other things. Bitterly disappointing - it appears that Tony got the tactics wrong I'm afraid and on top of that nothing really went right. C'est la vie we have enjoyed UEFA and must be back very soon.
eastneydave
stfc - he does occasionaly. remember our goal against west brom last year in the FA cup? I won'tault tony's tactics - we were let down by poor mistakes, mvuemba justified his incusion with a STUNNING goal, defoe also got his. However our whole back 5 played abismaly today - let's hope we sort it out for the rest of the season. if we can, we will do well, if not, we could struggle...
pompeycarpet
Sort of fun reading all the above comments. I was there & lived every moment, every high & low.
