MOTD2 come calling again!

MOTD2 come calling again!

Those of you that have been a part of this site for some time may well remember way back, what seems an eternity ago now, in November 2007 I think it was when the Match of the Day 2 crew made contact with me asking if I, or anyone I knew, would take part in a feature they were running to be screened on that weekends MOTD2 show.

At the time I recall that we were on our fantastic unbeaten run, unbeaten at home that season and on a 13-game unbeaten streak altogether - a run that seemed like it was never going to end! Queue the visitors Spurs and the MOTD2 team and this run ended... Well, not only ended, but ended with the most shocking displace you would be likely to see!

Well with us now on a similar sort of run, but in reverse of course, in as much as we cannot buy a win they have come calling again - ahead of the game with Liverpool on Saturday they wanted to interview a few of us from Vital Pompey.

Last time we had Chix, eastneydave, storagematt and Dave - Matt's mate. This time they again originally wanted 4, so I threw this open to my editorial team and the plan was to have Chix, eastneydave and paultsmouth do this, I was 'considering' joining them but did not expect I would, so I would have then thrown it open to someone else.

This then changed to just the 2, so with Chix and paultsmouth already confirmed as 'yep I will do its' - with the proposed time proving too early for eastneydave - these guys will fly the Vital flag.

I will be going along with them, and if they can find an extra slot I think I will actually face my fears, and nerves, and go for it. Chances are I will miss out on a 'moment of fame' again, but this time I have no one else but myself to blame - I cannot use the excuse of 'I cannot get there', as I can!

So, look out for the Vital Pompey boys on MOTD2 this Sunday as they are again hobnobbing with Kevin Day as they share their thoughts on our current run, the departure of 'you know who', the 'other one' and the management team in place - we 'should' have a caption under each when they speak for the first time with names and where they are from, which also promotes the site. This will be some nice free promotion for us, and the Vital community in general!

Tell them to sod off, and concentrate on another club, all they want to do is dig up dirt about Redknob and Defoe. Move on, tell them to go up to Newcastle and pick on someone else instead of the easy targets again.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
