Pompey slip into the bottom 3!

Pompey slip into the bottom 3!

Tonight Blackburn played their game in hand against Fulham, and courtesy of a 2-1 at the Cottage - they came from behind to win as well - they moved above us, and others, into 15th place in the league, thus meaning of course we have dropped into the bottom 3!



So, the game with Boro - and the subsequent ones that follow - takes on even more importance now as at this point in time our own destiny is now no longer purely in our own hands. As long as we were out of this bottom 3 having played the same, or less games, it always was...

It is not quite a 'must win' game but avoiding defeat at the Riverside this weekend is very much a must, anything less than a point - and even if we 'only' get a point we could be looking at squeaky bum time, as things could start to look very uncomfortable come 6pm on Sunday!

We still have a game in hand of course, the 'easy matter' of a trip to Old Trafford to take on some tin pot outfit, Manyoo - gulp! 'If' we got spanked at Old Trafford then our goal difference would take another pounding, and this is not that good as it is! Parking the bus at its very best would be the order of the day that evening methinks...

But hey, each game as it comes - bring on the Boro!

If we beat Boro we will be out of the bottom 3 and then I think we will stay out. We have some good games coming up for us, but I really am just focused on this weekend.

With your away form bluemooner you should be looking over your shoulders. If we can beat you so easily are you really safe yet ? Now we must have that bite about us, the bit that Adams couldn't bring out...
