SECOND TIME LUCKY?
Wednesday sees the return of Arsenal to Fratton Park, for our re-arranged fixture after the washout fiasco. Since their last (un-played) visit Arsenal have progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions league for which they must be congratulated.
Arsenal have been widely criticised in recent months for their non-English policy, but that seems to end with the return of Sol Campbell to the defence, who has very happy memories of his last visit which resulted in the only goal of the game.
Pompey on the other hand are looking to make it five games without defeat, and the return of Andy O’brien looks likely in place of Linvoy Primus who earns a rest. Wayne Routledge who looked lively on Saturday, and Ognjen Koroman are others pushing for a starting place. One change Harry may be tempted with is that of Todorov, who looks sharp and calm in front of goal, in place of Benjani, who his suffering a drought of Sahara proportions.
While Pompey look to climb out of the bottom three, the gunners look to their rivals Spurs who sit neatly above them in the coveted fourth spot. Pompey fans will no doubt wish Arsenal well in Europe, but we will be hoping the only way they make the Champions league qualifiers is by winning the competition, that way we can take the three points and Henry and co. can go home empty handed with just the Fratton cheers ringing in their ears.
