Pompey will stay up!

Pompey will stay up!

'With the current squad that Pompey have, plus a player or two, we will stay up because there are worse teams than us', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I agree with...

We clearly need something more in the attacking end of the pitch, be that a player to play alongside Freddy P regularly in a 4-4-2 or better quality wide players that will link up with the striker and create chances in a 4-5-1.

The squad is very thin, that much is obvious, but with luck with injuries and/or suspensions we still have enough quality, and quality that 'should' be better than at least 3 other sides - bearing in mind 17th would be enough!

  • What the poll asked - Based on the current squad, with maybe 1 or 2 more, will we stay up?

  • How you voted - Yep, there are at least 3 worse than us 66%, Nope, not enough quality or depth 23%, I really do not know... 11%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    I hope you are right rug, we need to get those first points on the board but may have to wait a couple of weeks before that happens.

    unfortunately all I get to see is MOTD and we didn't look like a team going down to be honest.

    Very optimistic after Saturday; we need to take our chances but yes, we will stay up.

    We aren't implicated in the Defoe transfer? I thought he acted as his own agent which he is allowed to do. The dispute is between Defoe and Sky Andrews; not our problem; could be a spurs problem

    Those two or three additions need to be at least one regular goal scorer and two quality players; a defender and a replacement for John cantbebovered Utaka

    We know Danny you want to stay!

    In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

    Three more pre-season games announced

    'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!

    Sheffield United loanee open to Pompey return

    McNulty would welcome a permanent transfer to Pompey. Although the Sheffield United striker could well be part of new manager Wilder's plans, so the chances seem 50:50 at best?
