off topic i know but reports coming out of croatia are saying that kalinic has signed for blackburn, so it 'seems' we have definiately missed that one now?
pompeyrug
Spending their Citeh money I suppose. Missed another one, we must sort ourselves out really soon!!

As for Guimaraes it will be interesting to see how well we do with our skeleton team.
eastneydave
Cheer up we've got kanu, so we are covered for 5 minutes of every third game fir sure! :-)
russellm
It'll be interesting to see who plays tonight.
tracyc
Shame it won't be kalinic. If he turns out to be fab at Blackburn, I'll, I'll, I'll . . . be cross!
Et_tu_Pompeii
What time is ko? Is it 9.30 or 10.30 (UK time?)
UKTony
Ohhh, happy memories of Guimaraes :)
Squee
Tony kikcs off at 9.15. Are you not out there then?
eastneydave
When Al Fahim takes full control he better release some funds for players even if it's in jan. I'm sorry but £6 mil for a international striker nowadays is peanuts! If we can't finalise deals like this coz we're trying to buy him on the same finance deal as using a Argos card then we are gonna be in serious trouble!!!
moley2
Any news on teams yet, lets hope we put in a good performance and hopefully Mokoena and Finnan get a good run out. Anyone know much about that Lyon striker we're linked with, any good?
moley2
james is back in goal some good news
mk pompey
Hart has apparently not given up grabbing Kalinic according to the latest Mail update. Might be a load of tosh but here's hoping. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1203513/Pompey-boss-Hart-given-hope-signing-Nikola-Kalinic.html?ITO=1490
cornypomp
What's the temp like out there...bet it's a lovely barmy evening. Peeing down and blowing a bloody gale down here in Cornwall. Dam glad I haven't just driven down and aid £1k for a holiday!
cornypomp
What a strange looking side Hart has named there - almost last seasons youth side with a bunch of trialists. Jamo will get backache playing behind this lot!
eastneydave
Umm.. Interesting team.. I've only ever seen 6 of the starting 11 play !
Chix
looks like finnan and mokoena is playing tomorrow
Football_Casual
it is a strange line-up, but some decent player 'potential' wise... hurst has looked good from what i have seen so far, certainly one to watch. ward at right back? very strange!
pompeyrug
Sounds like quite a few have made the return trip from the noise. Pitch has been overwatered and is cutting up.
eastneydave
Not a strong side but i still think Pompey might win. Come on Pompey. Also its good to see Jamo back.
PompeyFcMad
Bopp on again, (Hart's pet)
paultsmouth
hughesie injured - so bopp, 'the pet' is on...
pompeyrug
Kalinic with Big Sam..i said so...I am so angry words fail me what Morons at PFC...oh and moley i dont think ALF/SAF has any money to invest in players..its all some mad ego trip.
plymouth graham
ward and ritchie are playing well. James done a few good saves.
Football_Casual
well lets see what happens with SAF when he comes in eh graham, then decide if its a mad ego trip or not... until he assumes control i do not think we are in any positon to judge are we?
pompeyrug
Nuge good finish again, offside though
paultsmouth
good to see nugent scoring again, even if it was offside... or not...
pompeyrug
well taken goal. shame it was offside .NEVER OFFSIDE
Football_Casual
I'm sat listening to this and am quite bored.. Is it me or is it just apathy with the whole set-up and situation at the mo.. I'm trying to be enthusiastic and positive but it's just not happening..
Chix
It's pre-season, Chix. Give it a couple of weeks.
wellyit
like my cousin said to me earlier today i just want to get on with it now, get the season underway and start focusing on that...
pompeyrug
I know what you mean Chix, hopes raised once again, then dashed by our lack of funds, and all we get is silence....
paultsmouth
evened things out then by the sounds of it - one goal wrongly ruled out apiece...
pompeyrug
Should of been a goal, bad refereeing.
PompeyFcMad
the kalinic signnig would have given us a massive boost, exactly what we needed - even if he had proven a doney ultimately, not that i think he would have, it would have given us something positive...
it would be nice to hear something tho, even if it was storrie saying what he wants to say...
pompeyrug
Its the whole set up Chix - we were built up so much and so close to being seen as a "big" club and its been all shattered so much that we just cant take anymore! The Croatian set back today feels like the last straw. Mind you, playing a reserve team tonite doesnt help either!
bathpompey
Main news we need to hear above all i think is that Sacha has finished packing his case (with nice crisp £50's) and that Al Fahim is sat in his new office
paultsmouth
.. never mind Ruggers we do have Viduka to look forward to..
Chix
What do we come out to next season then, Exodus by Bob Marley or Teenage kicks?
paultsmouth
talking of donkies, this ref sounds a bloody donkey! ritchie and cowna-hall sound like they are having good games...
pompeyrug
good evening bathpompey, welcome to vital pompey - not seen you before :-)
pompeyrug
Sounds like Bopps good with his hands! Cowan Hall having a go though
cornypomp
i liked what i saw of cowan-hall on saturday and apparently he was pretty impressive on tuesday... and now he has been booked! for nothing!
pompeyrug
well maybe not nothing, but little in comparism...
pompeyrug
Yh there should of been some bookings by now, a bad tackle on cowan hall shoould of got a booking.
PompeyFcMad
Refs a DONKEY!!!!
cornypomp
Yeah I know Bath It worries me that when I feel down things must be bad as I'm normally very positive and can see the good situations or opportunities to most things .. but today I just feel flat.. I'm sure I'll be ok in the morning...
Chix
Ignore Corny er-or, er-or, e orlways says that ...
Chix
James, Johnson, Distin, Campbell, Pamarot,
Davis, Diarra, Hughes, Traore,
Crouch, Defoe
The team the last time we played this lot .. Three left !.. but it actually wasn't our strongest team either.. No Diop or Kranjcar.. At least their still with us ..
Chix
hiya lads, shame about the kalinic news.
Gleams
Mark Hughes has told his players to expect some more new faces at Eastlands before the start of the season...
Chix
Hi ya Gleams.. Yeah didn't want him anyway ;)
Chix
Oh .. Carlos Tevez asked if he could have one !
Chix
didnt realise this was one, just checking the forums, and watching mock the week. nice end to a ***** day playing golf! is nugent looking good?
Gleams
Thanks for the welcome guys - been following you for ages but not posted before. Anyone seen the "Monitoring the activity of Sulaiman Al Fahim" web site (the site dedicated to criticising him) - bet he reads that and cringes every day! Anyway, I dont think that we should all get too depressed, difficult though it is not to as personally I cant believe that any business person would make an investment and then see it knowingly devalue - whats the point - he would be a laughing stock in his locality and from what I have read about him he wouldnt allow that. keep the faith!!
bathpompey
he might sign yet :-) lol!
hurst, living up to my billing and cowan-hall really sounds like he is playing well, might be worth taking him off tho incase they wind him up and get him sent off? joel ward also doing well at right back, which isnt his position. ritchie up and down.
pompeyrug
thats the spirit 'keep the faith' has become our motto :-) you will find now tho mate, once you get involved there is no turning back - nor would we want this!
pompeyrug
not bad. how come finnan and mokeona arent playing?
Gleams
Yh The quay said that cowan-hall is scaring the Vitoria defence lol
PompeyFcMad
Yeah Mad but have you seen his face !
Chix
At the least we are not losing. Also, what appears to be an in-experienced young side are playing in a well organised fashion. How good are these guy's anyway? i.e. the opposition.
dedmans
Think they're in for the Benfica game Gleams
cornypomp
haha ugly guy is he lol
PompeyFcMad
Hope he's mum aint tunin in....she thinks he's beautiful...
cornypomp
haha a face a mum could only love lol. Has anyone actullay seen what he looks like, we might be saying this stuuf but he might be a good looking bloke lol
PompeyFcMad
I will try and get the benfica game on then, thanks corny. If Ritchies playin, what does taht mean to the county bit?
Gleams
moudie does not have a clue what 'the hold up' is does he, 'its not the fact that debt needs clearing its urm, not its erm, no, other things, its erm..something completely different...' yea mark, whatever you say mate!
pompeyrug
are we talking about paris cowan-hall? well as guys go i wouldnt say he was 'frightening' at all...
pompeyrug
Mystery Gleams
cornypomp
to be fair he probs knows as much as we do and he was probs trying to answer in a way in which he doesnt answer it (if you get what i mean)
PompeyFcMad
why the hell do we have a penalty shootout regardless - i heard it right, right? penalty shootout whatever the result? do you get 'extra points' for the torture of this...
pompeyrug
maybe so, altho from what i know about moudie and close firends that have spoken to him he comes across as a very much 'all mouth and no trousers' type of guy... talking the talk but not walking the walk? i think he seems an ok guy tho to be fair.
pompeyrug
and also we were sayin tht cowan-hall was scaring the vitoria defence cos of his skill but we joked bout him scaring him cos he wasnt good looking but only joking
PompeyFcMad
ok, but somewhat annoying, altho im sure plenty feel the same about me!
pompeyrug
Yeah that was as clear as mud.....MAD
cornypomp
the penalty rule is this A penalty shoot-out will be held after both of Pompey's matches in the City of Guimaraes Trophy, regardless of the score after 90 minutes. If teams are tied at the top of the table at the end of the tournament, the side with the better record in the shoot-outs will be declared the winner.
PompeyFcMad
The quay just said that Nemi is on trial with us, so thats confirmed.
PompeyFcMad
yep, the ref is a donkey - said i feared cowan-hall being sent off!
pompeyrug
Shoot that bloody Donkey!!!!!!
cornypomp
Dam Penalty and also if im not making any sense is becuse im tired and Cowan-hall has got sent off nooo! And off the post yehhh, we can still win this. with 10 men. And oh no they have scored now nooo!
PompeyFcMad
justice is served...kind of!
pompeyrug
Ref is a proper homer
paultsmouth
Refree what are you doing, hes having a nightmare.
PompeyFcMad
donkey, doing an injustice to donkies - i would laugh, but the guy aint funnt!
pompeyrug
funny even...
pompeyrug
Cowan-Hall is suspended in the Prem for that!!
paultsmouth
thats stupid its pre season for god sake
PompeyFcMad
Hi all, I forgot this was on. Are we winning?
Gandor1
stupid aint it - the ref is a joke as there could, and should, have been what at least a couple of yellows given for fouls against cowan-hall...
pompeyrug
looks like Kanu's coming on
PompeyFcMad
nope, losing 1-0...
pompeyrug
Whats the score?
moley2
you can listen to it on the quay.
pompeyrug
Just read the score, is Uriah Rennie the ref by any chance?
moley2
now that was funny moudie, made me laugh out loud... and again lol!
pompeyrug
Thanks Rug.
Gandor1
rennie would be better!
pompeyrug
Who's moudie?
moley2
We could still win this on penalties....
cornypomp
Uriah Rennie moley.. I reckon I need a Rennie.. the ref is giving me indigestion !
Chix
mark moudie, the commentator on the quay.
pompeyrug
My god, Vitoria could get away with murder with this ref in charge.
PompeyFcMad
Get Utaka on and watch the fireworks
cornypomp
what in celebration of him leaving :-)
pompeyrug
what the hell is going on? is it one rule for us and another for vitoria...
pompeyrug
Now now Rug! sounds like it's only 3 subs for us...what is this a stitch up?
cornypomp
acording to the officals your only aloud 3 subs after half time and vitoria made 8 at half time so we cant bring on utaka or anyone else.
PompeyFcMad
1-0 to the referee, 1-0 to the referee, lol
PompeyFcMad
God knows what's gonna happen when the penalties are taken...Begovic will have to stand behind the goal you wait!
cornypomp
What a waste of time and effort
dedmans
they are talking about ritchie and his shooting, the minimal backlift when he does shot - this is something that ive noticed him do hell of alot, as alot of his goals for dagenham were exactly that. its amazing the power he can generate with minimal backlift. they called hiztelsperger that used to play for villa 'the hammer', maybe thats a fitting name for ritchie...
pompeyrug
Whatttt! there bringing another sub! and we have only brang on two in the second half so we are aloud to bring another one arent we? This is ridicolus. The whole officals and ref and everyone is on vitoria side.
PompeyFcMad
2-0 FFS! Stupidest game ever.
PompeyFcMad
This is a total Farce!
cornypomp
Who are gonna take our penalties.. ? My Money is on Mudie, Macca, Hart, the Ref and Johnny Westwood.. any advances on that little lot..
Chix
the ref, the linesmen, the 4th offical and the vitoria coach...all for pompey...
pompeyrug
I thought Beadle was dead, surely he is going to come out and rip off his disguise and laugh at paul hart now?
paultsmouth
...and will of course all miss by 'accident'...
pompeyrug
Sorry I'm missing something. Why are there going to be penalties if we are losing 2-0?
Gandor1
what a fu!*ing surpirse the penalty are gonna be taking at their end.
PompeyFcMad
A penalty shoot-out will be held after both of Pompey's matches in the City of Guimaraes Trophy, regardless of the score after 90 minutes. If teams are tied at the top of the table at the end of the tournament, the side with the better record in the shoot-outs will be declared the winner.
PompeyFcMad
some stupid rule about having penalties regardless...
pompeyrug
nice one cranie... altho i suspect he will have to retake!
pompeyrug
Thanks Mad and Rug - I find all this extra-curricular very bewidering!
Gandor1
vitoria changed there mind bout how many subs your aloud half way thorugh the match.
PompeyFcMad
nice one marc wilson...
pompeyrug
nice one asmir begovic!
pompeyrug
If you have your face shoved in the mud you will get up and stuff anyone near you. This is excellent pre-season preparation!
dedmans
ahh matty, matty, matty...
pompeyrug
nice one eguen bopp...
pompeyrug
ahh no mahoto...
pompeyrug
We lost the match twice what a stupid and most ridicolus game that was, hope its better 2morrow.
PompeyFcMad
I've gotta go and lay down I'm too underwhelmed....
cornypomp
I found it funny that all the fans were leaving at full time not knowing that was gonna be penaltys lol.
PompeyFcMad
Im off to bed now after that crazy crazy game, tired me out.
PompeyFcMad
135 comments for a friendly .... I think that says it all really..
Chix
... but I'm still not over the game..
