Come on Pompey. A 2-0 win for us.
Pompey Malta
Gonna be scrappy but I'm hopeful of a 1-0 win. We desperately need a result tonight with Arsenal and City still to come - we don't want to be staring down the barrel of a fifth game still looking to get off the mark.
Battenberg
hmm yea i fear your right battenberg, we really need something from this, well unless we get a cash injection i suppose ;)
pompeym@
At least Utaka isn't playing - that's got to be a good thing!
tracyc
Here is the team news... James, Wilson, Distin, Kaboul, Belhadj, Vanden Borre, Mullins, Diop, Mokoena, Krancjar, Piquonne... Subs are Begovic, Kanu, Basinas, Nugent, Ward and two others I didn't catch (Possibly Hughes & Utaka)
PompeyFrippy
I'm really excited by the prospect of Vanden Borre, can't wait to see how he gets on.
Battenberg
Vanden Borre against Vignal should be an interesting battle. Especially if Vanden Borre is any good.
PompeyFrippy
Im excited to see what Vanden Borre can do on his debut. We shouldnt expect a easy game as Birmingham are looking for there first win aswell as us. But i think Pompey could just sneak it. Play Up Pompey!
PompeyFcMad
Come on you Blues
Chix
Play up Pompey, Pompey play up
Chix
come on pompey
Football_Casual
BORRE FIRST GOAL SCORER I GOT 33/1 ODDS
pompeyhussler
I got Belhadj at 33's and Bouba Diop at 20/1. And, yes, I am crazy.
PompeyFrippy
i sold my house put it all on .. IF I WIN I WILL BUY POMPEY!
pompeyhussler
But it's gonna be 0-0 fellas
Chix
Spurs 1-0 v Hull .. Defoe !
Chix
WHY BACK crap odds !?? one season i put 1 on linvoy every game he got 2 first goals and was 40/1
pompeyhussler
Spurs 2-0 up now !
Chix
evening guys, come you blues - lets get something to send us into the weekend on good spirits, as lets face it we will get mullered at arsenal...
pompeyrug
Hope so Rug.. get something tonight I mean.. not get mullered by the Gunners
Chix
keep it to 2-0 on saturday and i will be happy :-)
pompeyrug
can someone tell hart BELHADJI is not a defender !!! hes leaving larsson open
Football_Casual
papa is 'finding his range'...
pompeyrug
Liverpool 1-0 after 4 mins.. and Burnley 1-0 v Manure !!!
Chix
we are kind of short of left backs tho arent we casual, well at the moment anyway - when others are fit he will move further forward.
pompeyrug
Gomes injured for Spurs, could this be an excuse for Jamie's Dad to get a new 'keeper?
PompeyFrippy
yeah :/ well if we didnt sell cranie he could play there or ward ?? we need that african to sign bhersa (dont know how to spell it Lol)
Football_Casual
You serious Frippy .. If so I reckon old Saggy face planned it !
Chix
hunt scored 4 hull
Football_Casual
Sniper from the bench me reckons. He's done his knee in and been stretchered off.
PompeyFrippy
***** off twitchy!
pompeyrug
.. and Gomes has been carried off.. Redknob planned it .. I'm sure..Come on POMPEY
Chix
Is there a Match of the Day on tonight?
PompeyFrippy
was i hearing things right a minutes ago when they said hart was telling belhadj to 'attack'...
pompeyrug
Sounds like Vanden Borre is a bit of a Utaka .. Somebody needs to feed Freddy..
Chix
not sure, it wasnt a 'full fixture list' was it, that said chelski, manyoo and bin dippers have all played these last couple of days so maybe do...
pompeyrug
What's with Pompeys Whote socks .. anyway ?
Chix
Sounds like Borre is not having a good start tonight - but then its his first game in the english league. Sounds a very scrappy game, errors all round.
tracyc
Yes MOTD is on.. RUg how do I stop that VIRGIN VIDEO starting every time the page refreshes it's driving me mad !!
Chix
AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - That bloody video.. It anybody else having this problem ?
Chix
If MOTD is on we can see Jamo in his pink shirt then!
tracyc
all you cab do is just turn off the sound, click on the speaker things and it turns it off...
pompeyrug
Jameo is in Pink .. looks nice ...
Chix
im lucky as im listening to it on my laptop and doing the 'match day live' on my desktop ;-)
pompeyrug
I can't get the ad, instead I get a message reading 'Territorial Restrictions do not allow you to view this specific clip.'
PompeyFrippy
No it doesn't .. Rug..
Chix
wilson sounds the only one doing anything
Football_Casual
'pretty in pink'...
pompeyrug
Borre just missed a chance to score. Both teams are awful tonight. Did I hear right that Pompey are in the black kit?
tracyc
on mine when it has the cross next to it the sound is off, when the cross isnt it is on - you will still need to click this everytime you refresh, it will not stay off...
i know its a pain, but what can you do.
pompeyrug
That Run buy 'pick your own' was great .. but Van den Boderlines touch was awful..
Chix
Can you turn the sound off on your PC/laptop?
tracyc
some creative player on the pitch about time to
Football_Casual
I can't hear the commentary then Trace ??
Chix
BASINASSSSSSSSS
Football_Casual
Basinas will be out to prove himself tonight. Just hope Diop isn't long term.
PompeyFrippy
come on basinas this is your chance... oh, unlucky Freddy P.
pompeyrug
Not another injury to Diop!
tracyc
if you open a new window, not a new tab, a new window it 'might' allow the quay one to be the main source of sound?
pompeyrug
Rug .. What can I do .. log off .. if we have to contend with this every Match day live it'll spoil it for all of us that use the same PC for commentary, Vital and pictures... anyway I reckon Bassinas might feed Freddy a bit more in the second half .. hope Diop is ok...
Chix
Another goal for Defoe !! Spurs 3-1 up...
Chix
Would love to see Basinas have a stormer and then run past PH and flick him the Vs.
hammersmithblue
i dont know why it does it on yours, but on mine the sound doesnt come on unless i click the speaker icon to make it come through mate...
pompeyrug
That wasn't great. But if it carries on like that, we can nick a point. Despite it being so poor, they weren't much better, and both teams had chances. On the plus side, I got Torres and Defoe in my Fantasy Football team.
PompeyFrippy
video is clashing with the Quay commentary.... noooo...... i'll be back later then....
footy_fans
I agree Frippy I will take a point... in fact I predicted 0-0 .. :) Vanden Borre is having a mare and Bimingham are there to be taken.. take the popint and try and get a free kick or Penalty
Chix
Don't believe it Mark Mudie is reading my comments !
Chix
come on pompey nic a 1-0 win ritchie 90mins ... winner
pompeyhussler
hope burnley lose coz if they win that will give them a boost for the rest of the season... like it did for us when we first went up can imagine all the teams who have gone up . relying on thier home form..
pompeyhussler
Richie? You'll get some odds on that hussler seen as he is not in the squad.
PompeyFrippy
HOW ANOYING IS THAT MOTHER KELLYS ADVERT...
pompeyhussler
Glen Johnson just scored for Liverpool!
Chix
Right kids are in bed, time for a listen in
paultsmouth
Did he Chix? Was that the one that said, 'Dearest Mark, you are my most favouritist commentator ever and I really love your voice. Please can you move Wisey aside and do the full match. Hugs and Kisses, Chix."?
PompeyFrippy
johnson scored for bin dippers - good news for my fantasy football side!
pompeyrug
Defoe.. Johnson.. who is next Crouch !!..
Chix
why aint ritchie in the squad ???? would be better than utaka
Football_Casual
******** john utaka...
pompeyrug
o noooooooooooo
Football_Casual
Utaka on for Vanden Borre .. COME ON YOU BLUES
Chix
As long as it's not Vignal Chix.
PompeyFrippy
-Borre fits in nice then!
paultsmouth
Frippy .. just read your comment (lol)
Chix
quack quack oops
hammersmithblue
vignal off
Football_Casual
Actually got a live stream just before the half time whistle, then lost it again. Doh! Hope the second half is a bit better, perhaps Basinas will take his chance to shine.
tracyc
Was VDB a bit crap then?
hammersmithblue
I tell you, you won't be able to tackle soon
paultsmouth
Crap is not the word HSB.. promise great things and didn't deliver.. just like his replacement !
Chix
yea paul its ridiculous =/
pompeym@
.. StillI'd give him another chance.. won't write him off just yet !!
Chix
we have to give vanden borre a few games tho dont we.
pompeyrug
scummer, scummer, scummer...
pompeyrug
Here comes the Scummer. Agree with Chix, wouldn't rule VDB out after one performance. Debut, little training, new to PL, he could stil deliever.
PompeyFrippy
Tracy.. My link is back up ... very poor picture quality though .. and five mins behind the playu .. not really worth bothering with tbh..
Chix
swindon (hometown) 1 - 0 scummers last night :D
Football_Casual
you actually found 1 chix.... i searched and failed lol
pompeym@
mullins you donkey...
pompeyrug
Not Mullins again!!
paultsmouth
MULLINS>>>>>>>>>NAH>>>>>OHHHHHHHH
Chix
and i predicted that he would score today, d'oh!
pompeyrug
Oh Hayden, could have been a hero (for now).
PompeyFrippy
Yeah but it is poor M@ i'll pm you ?
Chix
would he have been offside then or not?
pompeyrug
come on this is the chance...
pompeyrug
And I was hoping that he had turned a corner...(not like a corner kick, just a meaphorical one ...might be easier for him to deal with a metaphor rather than a real one)
hammersmithblue
niceone mate cheer, sounds like mullins is back to his old self =/
pompeym@
Didfficult to tell Rug .. camera is on the halfway line... at a push I'd say.. Just !
Chix
come on this is better.
pompeyrug
Is it that Chinese one - very poor quality. Still the black shirts look quite nice. Decisions decisions - black shirt or pink goalie shirt?
tracyc
Sounding better, same as saturday though, no finish
paultsmouth
Play Up Pompey! Just thought I'd let you know I am here - nothing to say for a change!
Gandor1
how many goals will we score this season !!!????
pompeyhussler
that scummer is dangerous. as is this freekick!
pompeyrug
It's a ****e old world when someone in China is watching Pompey v Brum and people with Sky subscriptions can't bloody well watch until the highlights are on.
hammersmithblue
***** off philips u *****ing scummer
Football_Casual
Will we score any?
tracyc
Good Save Jamo
Chix
any news on if we will have money to spend on new players coz if we dont we will be done for ! when we start picking up injuries theirs no backup .. we havant even got a reserve team..
pompeyhussler
Yes tracey, we are going to score TONIGHT!
Gandor1
i'm not sure i understand this term.... score?.. ;D lol
pompeym@
Sounds like we're really lucky that Birmingham are playing as badly as we are. This doesn't bode well for the Emirates!
tracyc
Score.. what's that then?
Chix
hammersmithblue u should thank them for not putting u through the pain of watching this game...
pompeyhussler
Come on Pompey!
L L Blue
Play up Pompey, Pompey play up
Chix
Fair enough HUssler. Nothing boded well for the Emirates, Tracy. Only hope is Arsene saves his A team and puts out the tea ladies XI and we MIGHT have a chance
hammersmithblue
thats why ticket sales have gone down at fratton park who wants to watch football with no goals .. well scored anyway. and no shots
pompeyhussler
More Running like that by Belhadj.. instrument free kicks it's the only way we will score..
Chix
ive got a song for MULLINS ARE U QUASHIE IN DISCISE
pompeyhussler
I like Belhadj. COME ON YOU BLUUUUUUUUUES!
Gandor1
Disguise even!
Gandor1
black kit looks nice
Football_Casual
we need a proper left back so belhadj can play left mid, he'd do some much better
pompeym@
Not with white socks Cas'
Chix
Would love to see Jamo all in pink!
Gandor1
I like Belhadj too. See Basinas has got booked. Is that a good sign re passion or a bad sign re berk.
hammersmithblue
Well according to the radio we seem to be getting a bit better this half - c'mon Pompey!
tracyc
I thought Belhadj was much more in evidence when we played Rangers. What position was he playing hen?
Gandor1
Better Tracy .. but not good !
Chix
played left back, but it was a weak rangers side and pre-season...
pompeyrug
anyone know were paris cowan hall is ??? he should be in the squad
Football_Casual
still left back i believe..
pompeym@
i would have put cowan-hall in the squad too, he was suspended for the 1st game wasnt he.
pompeyrug
lol i hate responding late, is there no way to make this auto refresh lol
pompeym@
15 minutes left. What would you do, bring on Nugent of Kanu and go for the win, or leave it as it is and play for a point?
PompeyFrippy
Aah! Nothng is ever straight forward Rug......
Gandor1
dont worry about it m@, thats all the fun of it - we all answer/say the same thing, its pot luck :-)
pompeyrug
PHEW..
pompeym@
Save by Jamo!
tracyc
BRING ON THE KING FOR MUGGINS!!!
pompeyhussler
Wouldn't bring Nugent on if i was going for a win! Kanu is the man - but I bet Hart goes for the point.
Gandor1
Oh bugger that ws close!
L L Blue
haha good to know rug :D but still would be nice lol
pompeym@
Love you Jamo!
paultsmouth
Done Jamo. You ain't going anywhere.
PompeyFrippy
england no.1 england england no.1
Football_Casual
thankyou jamo... bloody laptop froze as it said down to phillips, and i was convinced it was in!
pompeyrug
That little scummers gonna score the winner inhe.. he always scores against us.
pompeyhussler
Frippy I would bring on Nugent and push for a win, but Paul Hart won't.
tracyc
we just have to hope that twitchy doesnt start getting itchy with that old tap up finger...
pompeyrug
Too right Tracey, I am amazed the whole Pompey team isn't sitting in the opposition net as we speak!
Gandor1
hmm, not sure i think it is probably best to settle for a point than push for a win... well push too much.
pompeyrug
Ssh Hussler!
tracyc
Wait to you see that Save ...
Chix
Freddie P off for kanu on - certainly settling for that point then, or trying to.
pompeyrug
Ugh! Spurs will be top of the table tonight. How disgusting.
hammersmithblue
Hussler I'm sat here thinking the same thing! Positive substitution.....NOT
L L Blue
piq off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what are u doing hart u wont get a goal with kanu up thier on his own... playing for the 0-0 again i see.
pompeyhussler
we should of signed this benitez from birmingham he looked gd angainst manyoo
Football_Casual
Kanu.. He'll inject some pace !
Chix
yup, just what i was thinking rug... shame but probably the right choice
pompeym@
IM SHOUTING!!!!
pompeyhussler
.....and just to top things off Spurs are top of the prem !
Chix
Seems like the happiest fans in the league at the moment are Burnley fans - still leading Utd 1-0. Good luck to them.
tracyc
Come on Pompey last ten 0-0 will do .. don't risk the point ..
Chix
Utaka looks to have stepped up a gear. To be fair, it wasn't possible to step down.
PompeyFrippy
KABOUL header..
pompeyhussler
oh.. i've come over all Paul Hart......... oh we have a corner.. just clear the first man.... ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Chix
Come on Pompey !
Chix
i think hart was thinking a draw about 85 mins ago macca lol!
pompeyrug
MOM is the one in pink by the sounds of it!
tracyc
Last 5 + Stoppages... Keep it cool .. a point is better than none despite the performance..
Chix
im worried very worried BUNLEY beating utd WOLVES won last night. WHAT if piqe gets injured what happens then ... season over
pompeyhussler
Under the cosh now, we need to protect the point but best form of defence and all that!
L L Blue
i wana write in blue lol [colour=blue]test[/colour]
pompeym@
lets not worry what other sides are doing and worry about what we do - way too early to be concerned by what others are doing...
pompeyrug
And to think I had forgotten just what a stressful thing it is to be PTID.
hammersmithblue
I agree Tracy just for two second half saves.. other than that Marc Wilson.. but the experienced pros are playing very below par .. still a point I predicted do I'll happily take it a point away from home is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick !
Chix
Come on Storrie, buy us some strikers!
tracyc
what time is MOTD on?
pompeyrug
Try Red M@ :)
Chix
Now you're just showing off Chix
hammersmithblue
arrrr cr*p
pompeym@
oh @@ penalty - c'mon Jamo!
tracyc
I notice Mullins is giving away a lot of fouls. Well at least he's getting stuck in. Just a bit late.
hammersmithblue
oh dear
PompeyJoe
Come on Pompey ... keep it safe .........Jeez well done Mullins .. 4 minutes to go ?......... ***** Penalty
Chix
Oh B~ll0cks
L L Blue
Not now. FFS. C'mon Jamo.
PompeyFrippy
ffs
Football_Casual
Bugger
paultsmouth
why jamo, why...
pompeyrug
b'll0x
tracyc
we are going down 1-0
Football_Casual
Def a pen
Chix
Typical typical typical....
hammersmithblue
i hope this wakes up STORY and co to put some cash on the table coz we are going down ... if we dont invest.. arsenal next!!
pompeyhussler
jamo lost us the game .. reckless ******** idiot !
Chix
Oh Niko!
tracyc
if we cant beat 2 average teams wht do we do?
pompeycook
ffs - we cannot afford to miss chances we get!
pompeyrug
so much for MOM then..... /sigh
pompeym@
Wait to you see it .. Jamo had no awareness whatsoever.. .. We are in the bottom three fellas !
Chix
I am not THAT bothered about Jamo going. He has to go at some point and he's not been that stunning at the mo.
hammersmithblue
That is just typical, bloody typical, they had nothing to trouble us tonight. What the hell is Mullins doing passing it !
L L Blue
I'm really not going to be watching MOTD, there's only so much punishment I can take.
tracyc
the heads will go down big time, even more so if we get spanked on saturday...
pompeyrug
Rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
moley2
hmm seems like where actually trying now which is sort of ironic
pompeym@
Hurrah! We're in the drop zone. Let's get settled in....!
hammersmithblue
and we ARE gonna get spanked on Saturday..
Chix
pobably chix, probably...
pompeym@
Mullins needs more bottle. He does that too often (passing rather than shooting)
hammersmithblue
jamo cost us the game but i would still without a doubt have him that begovic of niemi in goal this season - we will miss him big time if he went...
pompeyrug
Six points lost! One off an arse and one by an arse!
L L Blue
Ande Defoe has a hat trick - give me strength! Those inarticulate morons from the Lane will be making their illiterate visit to our forums very shortly.
hammersmithblue
Sorry fellas Jamo cost us that point... A crap performance I can cope with but a bloody stupid unecessary challenge I can't ... Oh ***** OFF MARK MUDIE .. James IS Cupable...
Chix
i need to see this penalty myself but from the sounds of it i think moudie needs to take his specs off perhaps...
pompeyrug
I hope these chinese and german investors have got some money coz boy don't we need it. Also why play 451 when we have no attacking threat and support from midfield, We'l be going down if we continue to play like this.
moley2
Rug Jamo was looking up that is true but he knocked the striker off his feet .. it was a stonewall.. seriously .. James at fault big time
Chix
I need chocolate.
tracyc
Why are we so *****e. Just once it would be nice to not be ******** useless.
Et_tu_Pompeii
I need Stella
Chix
At least we are not bottom .. thanks to Jermaine Defoe !
Chix
The guy was going nowhere with his back to goal and may have even ran it out until Jamo jumped on his back, needless challenge and has cost us.
moley2
ET_Tu .. I've been asking myself that for the last 90 minutes..
Chix
What a generous little chap he is
hammersmithblue
I think I'll go and kick the cat!
Gandor1
Moley I agree .. needless challenge !
Chix
W.O.W.
footy_fans
i'd rather go kick defoe!
pompeym@
(I couldn't really kick my cat) I'll kick the old man instead!
Gandor1
Wht ive heard is that Larsson waited for Jamo to come to him, he cheated.
PompeyFcMad
and now we have .. stick your oar in !.. *****ers (including Mudie) talking absolutely *********.. think I'll go and watch 90210
Chix
I'll wait until I see the highlights, but it sounded to me like the lino bottled it under pressure from the home crowd.
PompeyFrippy
Yeah but James was the fool Mad
Chix
Lino didn't bottle it Frippy .. Jaems was stupid ..
Chix
22/1 to beat Arsenal according Betfair. I didn't think we we're that awful.
PompeyFrippy
Granted my feed was pretty blurry, but it looked like the striker ran into James as much as James ran into him. It was a 50-50 stupid challenge, yes, but in my opinion was never a PK. And as far as the McCann rumours were going, I would take anyone over Mullins any day now.
pompeywa
Chix you on the stella already whose Jaems?
L L Blue
Here we go... on the phone in... ED .. says.. We are dumbstruck and it was the worse game he's ever seen.. yawn.. I'm off before I ring Mark Mudie is a **** who talks absolute B O L L O C K S
Chix
L L Blue .. Pair Sider.. Who iz Jaems ..?? The winlker who gav away the pen-altee
Chix
Wa.. The striker was standing still .. and why single out Mullins !!.. what about Belhadj (awful), Distin (average) Kranjcar (poor) Get off the bandwagon !!
Chix
Never a penalty - they ran into each other !
pompeysloth
look guys we where unlucky, muggins lived upto his name, he should have scored and they where lucky to get a penatly, but we still played pretty well and with another striker we'll not be a half bad side, don't start getting pesimistic already just cause we lost 2 matchs
