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.

Away day Blues

We can be brilliant one game and then woeful the next...usually after we've won (usually pretty well) at home but then we lose away, as we did at Blackpool.

Vital View - League 2, 27th September

A lead at was extended by Plymouth with Blackpool recording a surprising win, talking of which Wycombe's five-one win against Crewe was certainly a 'surprising' win.

Match highlights - Blackpool 3-1 Pompey

The mystery that is Pompey and our dodgy away form continued with another defeat suffered at Blackpool, who hadn't won at home since the first game of the season before this 3-1 win.
