Reserve fixtures announced

The reserve fixtures were announced of Friday, and this sees Pompey kick-off at Wolves.

Remember the youth and reserve sides are areas that Vital Pompey wants to follow much closer this season.

So, if anyone is willing and/or able to help out with match reports and progress in these areas please let me know by contacting me on this email addy - portsmouth@vitalfootball.co.uk.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

==========

RESERVES START AT WOLVES

Pompey's reserves kick-off the 2009/10 season with a trip to Premier League returnees Wolves.

They visit the newly-promoted side in the Barclays Premier Reserve League South on Tuesday, August 25 before hosting Chelsea seven days later.

Last season Guy Whittingham's side finished fourth in the table, amassing 25 points, while the league was won by Aston Villa.

They will travel to the 2008/9 table-toppers on Monday, September 14 before hosting Villa on Tuesday, January 5.

Should Pompey end the season on top they will compete in a play-off final against the winners of the Barclays Premier Reserve League North on Wednesday, May 5.

There are just nine teams competing in the southern league next season, which means Pompey will play sixteen games.

This follows Tottenham's decision not to enter a reserve team in the competition for the forthcoming season.

With the squad we have a the mo I'd question whether we actually have a reserve side .. It could be that a lot of the 2nd year Academy boys play at this level next season with the 1st years playing in youth league.. Mind you we haven't announced the new Academy recruits yet and this is norrmally done in July .. so as it stands we probably can fulfill all fixtures... Surely the Academy intake can't be subjest to Due Diully as well .. can it !

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
