Am I Dreaming? Two Wins!

Am I Dreaming? Two Wins!


Pompey hammer out the irons

Pompey carried on where they left off against Man city, both in team selection and attacking nature, we even scored more than once for the second week on the bounce!
West ham made the expected changes ahead of their plum q-final tie on Monday, but kept the same back four and carried a goal threat with ex-blue Sheringham and Zamora.

The first half couldn’t have gone any better for Pompey, Lua Lua keeping a pre-match promise in breaking his long goal drought from 12 yards, Sean Davis continuing his steady improvement with a smart finish, and Pedro Mendes eclipsing last weeks two cracking efforts with another twenty yard beauty in the style un-seen by Pompey fans since the departure of Patrik Berger.

West ham showed their intentions at half time, Harewood and Benayou coming off the bench in a go for broke situation, Harewood hitting the bar soon after coming on from a tight angle. Benjani had a golden opportunity to break his duck soon after but his lack of confidence showed as he dragged his effort tamely wide.

The hammers were not to be denied though, and Koncheskys effort came off the post to none other than ex-captain Sheringham who doesn’t miss from 12 yards.

Todorov on for the beleagured Benjani returned the favour by tucking home against his former club with time ticking away to put any nerves to bed, Benayou scoring at the death to give the scoreline some respectability to the hammers fans, who will now look to Monday for solace.

Pompeys first back to back wins for 50 premiership games have come at just the right time, with both West brom and brum going down at home, now for a resurgent Arsenal next week, a few days before their champions league tie, anyone for a rest from Highbury?

Play up Pompey,

Well, I say right back issue but is this really an issue? According to the majority of you that voted you're happy to keep faith and trust in Cook with whomever he selects.
