Hart on Citeh defeat

Hart on Citeh defeat

Yet again, but in defeat, Paul Hart was happy with what his Pompey troops offered in the 1-0 defeat against Citeh at Fratton yesterday. He knows that we missed chances, and this costs us, but he was also content with the showing - also saying that he wants David James to stay, so now we just have to hope he does.

See Harts views on the above, and more, in this sky sports video...



It was the usual story though of what limited chances we had we failed to take - and at this level we must take them, but once again I was very encouraged by what I saw and thought the crowd were good as well.

Now we need this week-in-week-out, but we need to start scoring!

With the other signings that we have to come in, and quite probably a couple more before the deadline, I still think that we will have enough to survive but Bolton is very much a 'must win' game in a couple of weeks time.

I could not fault the players effort, commitment or determination - we never gave up, and that is what we need.

For me Michael Brown deserves a special mention - I was not overly convinced by his signing but I thought he was fantastic, if we get that week-in-week-out we will not go far wrong, and to be fair although he runs around all over the shop he did not look like a headless chicken, there was purpose to what he did.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Certainly they played with spirit, and that's something that's going to be essential over the coming weeks, but so is taking our chances and nicking a point when we possibly can - and if we keep failing to do that we're in big trouble. Not that played 4 lost 4 isn't big trouble already!

I was proud of Pompey, but ashamed of Nugent who could have change our story and gave us something to build on.

Still think taking 85 mins to work out that Hughes should come off makes PH a poor manager. He's a dingbat.

On this day in history...29th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
