Well said that man!

Well said that man!

Even before Aaron Mokoena had kicked a ball for Pompey he was getting stick, granted initially I was as bad as most, but I think his opening displays against Benfica - to a degree, but certainly Rangers and Fulham at the weekend suggest that he has 'what we need' this season.

Like I say these performances have been encouraging, but it is his off the field actions that have today impressed me - he has said that the takeover talk should not be a distraction and cannot be used as an excuse.

Players get paid to do a job, and get paid handsomely to do so, so until they fail to be paid lets see them do what is asked of them - well done, and said, Mokoena!

One way to earn the respect of Pompey fans is to give 100% every week, signs are he will do that and another way is to say the right things, and so far so good...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I have always said that Mokoena will be an important player for us. He is a leader by nature, and he is showing character here at Pompey already.

Proper proffessional attitude; I'm tired of listening to those poor old worried players with their houses and cars paid for; they have it tough. Well said Moko !

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.

Pompey Predictions League - update no.28

The Pompey predictions league is very much part of this site now! This continued with a defeat to Orient last Saturday.
