Match day live - Special!

As a 'one off' special Vital Pompey is running this 'match day live special', so however you follow this afternoons crucial games - and our safety could be confirmed before a ball is even kicked on Monday - share your thoughts with us right here.

Bolton v Hull
Newcastle v Fulham


These 2 games are games that we will be following very closely this afternoon - defeat for either, ideally both, and we are safe - both avoiding defeat with victory for one, or both, and we are up to our necks in it and the pressure valve is really cranked up ahead of Sunderland's visit to Fratton on Monday...

However you are keeping up with events - why not make a few comments below as the day and afternoon unfolds.

So guys, share these thoughts...

I think Hull will get a result at Bolton but Fulham will beat the Toon as they have european football to play for, plus they owe us for keeping them up last season!

Over at Old Trafford they have kicked off for the second half - Score is still Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal I suppose we want Arsenal to score/win as it would mean United would have to get at least a point at Hull ... Come on the Gunners

should arsenal win, then the Hull-united game could shape up to be a classic (or a bore draw) with both sides needing a result to secure survival or win the premiership. In a way, it's a shame wigan couldn't hold out for a draw isn't it!

Won't be a better chance for Hart to prove his credentials with 2 games to show what style of football we could expect next season if he is appointed. Also, any would-be buyers in the wings would have the opportunity to see the potential of the current squad, and how they might fare not playing the defensive football they have been to stave of relegation. Go for it Hart, or go back to youth development role!
