We Have Match Off

We Have Match Off


A RIGHT OLD DAMP SQUIB

After much anticipation, yesterday’s game was called off by ref Mike Riley an hour before kick off.

No doubt Arsenal, if not their fans who were probably already occupying the local pubs, were greeting the news with jubilation ahead of their champions league match on Wednesday.

Although the pitch was no doubt carrying excess water, Pompey have been made to play on far worse in recent years (Leicester anyone?).

The match must now be replayed either next month or in May depending on European commitments by Arsenal. Pompey will be disappointed to miss out last night on an opportunity to keep their recent good run going, while Arsenal will be glad of the rest.

Next week we travel to Fulham at Craven cottage which has so far been some what of a fortress this season, but with a large traveling contingent who knows?

Play up Pompey

Personally i was very disappointed. Especially as it rained for approx 10 mins after decision was made, and never rained again until well after 7pm. And the Met office said what exactly Mr Riley?

I think it is a disgrace that it ha sbeen called off. I think of all those games played over the winter in the championship and below that get played despite freezing and snowy pitches
