Pompey v Citeh - CALLED OFF!

Pompey v Citeh - CALLED OFF!

Our game with Citeh today has been called off due to a frozen pitch, something that had been feared for most of the week.

A pitch inspection started at 9am, and finally around 10.30ish Mike Dean deemed the pitch unplayable - hot air blowers have been working round the clock since Wednesday but with temperatures below freezing most days this week nothing could be done to save the game.

The main problem area was thought to be in the middle of the pitch, which gave me some hope it could go ahead, but now I - and thousands of others are left disappointed, I feel for those that have made long, long journeys prior to today and during today...

From the games point of view playing today would have been ideal for us as Citeh have injury problems and have not really signed the 'star names' expected just yet, by the time the rearranged game comes around chances are they will have - at least we 'should' have also added some steel in midfield!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Sorry guys - I reckon this is my fault! First time I'd have been going to Fratton since late September, and I had Victory Lounge tickets and all so I've been looking forward to this for well over a month - Sod's Law strikes again.

A fantastic chance for 3 points today!!! Whatever we did to get the game on, it wasn't goos enough. The next time we play citeh, Ireland won't be suspended, Robinho & SWP will be fit & they'll have £50m of new talent!!! The could be a very costly game to have had cancelled.

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
