I'm here - typing Toast.
eastneydave
wonder why gekas ain't on the bench
pompeym@
its a strange one isnt it pompeym@? maybe he has a knock, or maybe hart and kidd just do not fancy him... that said with kanu and utaka named on the bench could we have named all 3?
pompeyrug
no i wouldn't name all three that just be stupid in my opinion but i dunno unless he has a knock, which i hope not, you would have to fancy him over kanu or utaka surely, unless he isn't as fit as we were lead to believe or hes takn badly to the new regime hmm hope hes not a wasted loan (he is a loan right? lol)
pompeym@
Hi Ya fellas.. I thought I'd lost ya all .. The article wasn't on the front page - 0-0 after 20 mnutes .. seem to have settled ok and getting forward from time to time..
Chix
lol hey chix yea sounds alright bit worring in the 1st couple of minutes though but we seem to have settled nicely
pompeym@
m@ - Yeah Gekas is a loan signing and to be honest I would fancy him over Utaka and Kanu too .. Thought Kanu was leaving.. ooooh a hospital ball from Kranjcar to go with the blast over the bar from earlier ... Things the Krunchie lovers will no don't forget come the end of the game ...
Chix
alittle scrappy at the moment isnt it - but the longer we hold out the more hope i have, and i do feel we will win today!
pompeyrug
Should b 'doubt' not don't !.. I'm on the Stella so my typing will deteriorate as the game goes on..
Chix
now there's a surprise lol!
pompeyrug
haha you really do have a vendetta out against kruchie ain't ya lol although judging by his performance so far i can see why lol - and i really hope we get to see gekas at some point he looked good for greece
pompeym@
I am too busy writing and answering the phone to drink anything!! Alright for some.
eastneydave
Me on the stella .. with my reputation..


My vendetta against Kranjcar is 'purely' personal .. I think he's crap and overrated Matt and just don't understand why all his 'lovers' still up for him .. You watch they wil claim he is man of the man or something... despite both the BBC & The Quay slating him in the last five minutes.. and there's a third of the game gone...
Chix
Easy Dave .. Stop writing and switch the phone off !


Rug Are you gonna do a Deal or No Deal on Kranjcar..
Chix
to say he is 'crap' is somewhat unfair - i too think we should sell if the right offer comes in, tbh i just do not feel that he is suited for our style of play, far more suited a side like arsenal?
pompeyrug
im only concentrating on those 'out of contract' at the moment, potentially i 'might' look at others after...
pompeyrug
yeah so if he's more suited for Arsenal.. For Pompey he just doesn't fit .. is unfit... is lazy ... is overrated.. That's enough to be crap for me ... I just don't ever see what he offers us..
Chix
completely agree rug but i do think hes overated
pompeym@
some creativity chix but atm not enough
pompeym@
So come on Ruigers.. who is next on Deal or No Deal.. The contenious one must be Linvoy ...
Chix
Not enough = Crap !
Chix
Come on Pompey - Let's get one before half time
Chix
O_O damn
pompeym@
Ohh Crouchy .. So close... Half Time
Chix
Hope they get the Harty/Kiddo treatment and come out transformed into game winners! Shake'em up lads!! Scum are winning convincingly so we need something to change the mood of the day.
hammersmithblue
all will be revealed on sunday Chix with the next deal or no deal - i have my order, but this will remain unknown until they are published...
pompeyrug
i will settle for 0-0 at half time...
pompeyrug
I'd settle for 0-0 at the end though Matt ... a clean sheet and an away draw... but I can see us becoming a little more attacking in the second half... but we do need that creativity you were talikng about .. no who should be providing that ...ummm.... any ideas ?
Chix
god yea i already said somewhere i'd be happy with a clean sheet and a draw but "as long as we play well" and i'm not convinced of that at the moment. -hmm for creativity i have no idea i'm not sure anyone in our squad has an onze of it sometimes lol we need someone like arteta for everton someone that can put that ball in that wins a game
pompeym@
Sounds a dire old game, Crouchie seems out of form and Nugent over eager to please
paultsmouth
It certainly sounds scrappy doesn't it - Stoke have had more chances so far. Come on Pompey!!
tracyc
Just had a chat via text with Rug, a point will do but you never know someone may pop up from the back again!
paultsmouth
hermann for a 3rd game running anyone...
pompeyrug
Hermann three games in a row .. what odds on that
Chix
Snap !
Chix
lol factor 50 but sol better be alright
pompeym@
Missed your earlier comment Ruggers ... So it IS Linvoy then .. otherwise you wouldn't have said no ;)
Chix
Come on Pompey ... create some room ... create something..
Chix
Here we go it's getting tetchy .. Am I gonna get the sending off I predicted..
Chix
as i said chix "i'm not sure anyone in our squad has an onze of it sometimes" if we win this it will be from 1 piece of flair from 1 player i beat ya
pompeym@
you will find out if it is linvoy tomorrow, well tomorrow...
pompeyrug
Another beer anybody ?
Chix
I've got bar snacks too..
Chix
Are we going to change anything? We could change to 4-4-2 without making any subs.
tracyc
lol might need it
pompeym@
Every time he says Pugh .. I wanna say Pugh, Hugh, Barney Mcgrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub.. or is that lost on you youngsters...
Chix
I've been thinking that as well, Chix
tracyc
Ah-Ha .. Thanks Trace.. Thought I was on my own with that one
Chix
no i know what your own about just about ;D
pompeym@
So they've made a sub . . . will we?
tracyc
know what you mean... but must admit that i had not thought it, but i am now!
pompeyrug
Stoke are applying a bit of pressure now.. we need to look to hit them on the break.. and we ain't set up for that.. Kranjcar off - Belhadj goes left Nugent goes up front... but I bet we see Kanu !
Chix
maybe belhadj and utaka for kranjcar and pennant and push nugent up top with crouchy?
pompeyrug
Back Four seems solid ... Back to their old selves .. hopefully ... Come on Pompey 20 mins to go .. let's keep it tight and then nick it at the end..
Chix
basinas for mullins again then, same as last week... go 4-4-2 now fellas!
pompeyrug
Ah-ha we are going 442... Now watch us score ... NUGENT
Chix
I wish the Quay wouldn't keep tempting fate!
tracyc
YESSSSSSS!!!!!
tracyc
wat i tell ya chix hes creative sometimes XD
pompeym@
W000000000000
pompeym@
OMG! Pen. C'mon Jamo!
tracyc
get in there - come on pompey!!!
pompeyrug
Get in !.... Told you we'd score....
Chix
oh ffs
pompeym@
come on jamo, please, please, please...
pompeyrug
Come on Jamo ... Save us ... Please
Chix
Oh poo.
tracyc
arr **** scummer bast*rd
pompeym@
***** .. ******** ,,, scummers.......... what a ******** *****er .......
Chix
need to see the 'handball' before i comment...
pompeyrug
Come on Pompey .. Let's get it back ... A point is OK but let's get another... Keep focussed... and get another.. Oh ***** !
Chix
3-1 was my prediction, niko one of the scorers...
pompeyrug
OMFG
pompeym@
What the hell?
tracyc
great so 2 ridiculous desicions just ******** great
pompeym@
Sounds like the ref is a homer
hammersmithblue
A non Pen and an offside goal - What is the ref all about ... ******** disgraceful...
Chix
jesus christ.... another decision i need to 'see' before i comments, looks like we have had a couple of shockers against us tho!
pompeyrug
So the penatly was never a pen, because it wasn't handball, and the goal was offside - what was that Storrie was saying about bad luck and Adams?
tracyc
Sound life the ref is **** to me HSB..
Chix
Hi all, Gandor here - any score:
Gandor1
Come on Pompey ... at least attack them...
Chix
1-0 up and now 2-1 down...
pompeyrug
Oh Gandor.... what timing.. I thought you were on holiday
Chix
Oh bugger!
Gandor1
Yes come on Pompey, we can still get something here.
tracyc
yeah and all within three minutes too
Chix
Hi Chix, Just arrived up that bloody mountain! Hotel has a computer, so you havenąt got rid of me for the week!
Gandor1
Best we can hope for is for someone to take Beattie out without being spotted.
hammersmithblue
Corner ... COme on Herms... nah I fancy Sol
Chix
I'm glad to hear it .. how could you even consider going on holiday without us in the first place ;)
Chix
Nice to see you, Gandor, hope you change our luck!
tracyc
yae good to see ya gandor lol belhaj on has got to be a good thing
pompeym@
Sounds like we are going to get our Manager search up and running again.
hammersmithblue
I'll do it HSB.. wouldn't mind being spotted either..
Chix
We've got 4 minutes - come on!
tracyc
Looked around the Airport terminal this morning, and EVERYONE looked liked Herman, so I thought it was a dead cert that he would score today.
Gandor1
Banging my head on the desk. It's a cruel and capricious mistress is Football.
hammersmithblue
YOU BEAUTY
pompeym@
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
Chix
get in there hermann!!!!!
pompeyrug
yyyyyyyyyeeeeeessssssssssssss
SUAC51
4 Minutes added time ..COME ON
Chix
YESS! HERMAN!!!
tracyc
HERMS!!!!!!!!!!
hammersmithblue
HERMAN I WANT YOUR BABIES XD
pompeym@
Now let's get a winner ...........
Chix
That's ******y, Gandor.
tracyc
"cruel and capricious mistress" ... But we love her HSB ;)
Chix
Why can't I write spo. oky?
tracyc
Own goal by Shawcross but herman will NEVER give up will he?
eastneydave
Gandor weaves her magc spell! No more holidays, Gands!
hammersmithblue
Would happily perform a lewd sexual act on the Pompey player who wins this (may change mind)
hammersmithblue
S P O O K is racist apparently Trace..
Chix
Aaaaahhh! I,m psychic - and cdrunk - and blind without my glasses! Yippeeeee! You.d all like it here. All doubles and two for the price of one during happy hour! I.m plastered!
Gandor1
Well we would have settled for a draw at half time so we gotta be happy ... and to be fair the way we came back will do our morale some good as well ... In my book we won 2-0 ..
Chix
Racist against ghosts and gouls? Well at least we didn't lose, and the boys showed good spirit - what can we do against ref decisions like that!
tracyc
well i said i'd be happy with a draw but after that i'm both releved and really annoyed not to have won oh well we played alright and deserved the win
pompeym@
Enjoy your holiday, Gandor, wherever it is you've gone. It sounds nice.
tracyc
Now the question is .. If Adams had got four points from the last two game (remember the 'next 3 games' comments.) we would be saying he should say ...
Chix
Shame Bolton beat Hammers.
hammersmithblue
Gandor... You DO know we are all round your house while you are away don't you ?
Chix
shh
pompeym@
Oops! Hope that wasn't valuable, Gandor.
tracyc
Right I'm outta here before all the tissers ring in with their...


"I've never been to Fratton Park or know where it is come to that, but I think we should sign Rooney"


..calls


Whoops just dropped one of Gandors Crystal Glasses... never mind Red Wine comes out of a deep pile carpet doesn't it..
Chix
Yikes .. no it doesn't .. come on people time to scarper !
Chix
exit...stage right
pompeym@
I took the family shopping to Salisbury. Come 3 O'clock, I'm in betting shops, currys, anywhere with a tv to get an update. With less than 20 mins to go I enter a bookies the score is 0-0. 2 minutes later we score & I scream. Half a dozen men start giving the eyeball as I disturb the horse racing. Charlie Nicholas says it wasn't a pen, a harsh decision. That made me feel worse. I then get a text from my brother in Norwich asking for an update. So I'm texting 1-1. Then fck they score again. Sky says looked offside. I hoping mad & retexting my brother. Oh so glad we got a point. It made the rest of the day very bearable for my family.
storagematt
No red wine at my place, drank it all before I came away! Well, I thought we would have won on the last sighting of Stoke at ours earlier in the season. Never mind, a draw is 100% on what we were doing. Come on the next one!
