Pompey's lions pride

Pompey's lions pride

Pompey, according to that muppet 'Hatchet Man' are rubbish, well one of the 'rubbish teams Newcastle will play before the end of the season', so if Alan Shearer does keep the barcodes up it will be because they play us and other rubbish teams...

Well this 'rubbish' side made up more than a quarter of the England starting line-up for the world cup qualifier with the Ukraine on Wednesday night, so I guess that makes England rubbish too if you follow 'Hatchet Mans' logic - Pompey are rubbish so David James, Glen Johnson and Peter Crouch must be rubbish, which would then mean England must be rubbish to select them!

As you can probably tell I have been festering on this latest 'swipe' that this tool has taken at Pompey, all be it only a minor swipe on Wednesday morning... Anyway, the 3 Pompey stars all started for England in the game that we won 2-1 to keep us very much on track for the world cup finals in South Africa in 2010. No other club had more players represent England tonight, only Chelsea, who also had 3, could match us! A proud evening to be a Pompey fan, although I for one am always proud!

Crouch opened the scoring before going off, with John Terry scoring the late winner after Andriy Shevchenko had equalised for the visitors - all 3, and as far as I know, all our other international contingent have come through without any problems so we look set to have a full deck for the trip to Hull on Saturday, bring it on!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Johno 4 ?.. Why ? I though he had an OK game .. why only 4 .. that's just crazy .. I thought they all did ok although Jameo still has to make his customary 'lost concentration' bit a couple fo time.. Crouchy worked tirelessly I felt and took his goal well..

I didn't see the game but 5 live callers afterwards were slating Cole something rotten. I can't believe GJ was worse.

Every season has its highs and lows. The draw at home to Morecambe was a body blow for Pompey, but little did we know that the next home game against Crewe was to be our turning point.

Done and dusted - O'Brien joining Coventry

Academy graduate O'Brien, who went on to play for Barnet, Brentford and Dagenham following his release by Pompey, will leave Fratton Park again - he'll link up with Doyle at Coventry.
