Scuff Sweet Swerve

Pompey feel at home at the cottage

Roared on by a vociferous away contingent, Pompey made it three out of three against Fulham and more importantly moved level on points with West Brom.

The match couldn’t have started any better for the blues. Wayne Bridge was in benevolent mood allowing Gary O’neil to open the scoring after barely 30 seconds.

Steed Malbranque hit a beauty of an equaliser which Kiely could nothing about, but Benjanis headed flick on sent Lua Lua sprinting away from Zat Knight to hit a deft finish to give Pompey a deserved half-time lead.

Into the second half and Pompey and O’neil scored another, his shot deflecting off Lua Lua’s head and leaving Crossley stranded. To compound Fulhams misery, Michael Brown saw straight red for a nasty two footed tackle on Sean Davis, which thankfully he got up from relatively un-scathed.

Pompey’s victory was the catalyst for “one Harry Redknapp” to ring out for the first time since late in 2004, and the manager was clearly delighted, pumping his fists to the crowd at the whistle.

Pompey fans can genuinely see light at the end of the tunnel now, and I can give a first hand account of the celebrating into the night, first in Putney watching Liverpool do the business for us against West Brom, and then Leicester Square was invaded by the jovial Pompey hoards!

Never has a train journey home been more enjoyable than the one which pulled into Pompey harbor just after midnight, has Harry got the fans back onside? Ask the thousands who were at the cottage on April 1st.
