Match Day Live - Carlisle v Pompey

Surely we can win this one. Can't we ?

Despite our recent results we must surely enter this game as favorites to progress into the last sixteen of this everso prestigious competition.

A victory - And the papers will claim we can use it as a springboard for our league form and start to steadliy climb the table

A loss - And the knives will be out for Paul Hart without a doubt. If indeed they are not already.

In fact, some are even calling it a 'must win' game for Pompey's under pressure Manager and although I do not personally subscribe to that view there were strong rumours that a certain Mr Hoddle and a certain Mr O'Leary have been contacted by a certain Premiership club, doing the rounds this afternoon.

Anyway I am sure all that talk will be academic as our boys in blue will return from their long journey victorious !

Question is .. Which XI players will start the game tonight..

Yebda & Webber to start for me - I think both will be big successes at Fratton once they get a few games under their belts...

A win tonigh will give us a massive boost going into the Everton game. And what ive heard is that Dindane could play tonight.

dindane in line for his debut - yebda surely must start too, as our only decent midfielder. Honestly, I don't rate basinas, as he can run about ALMOST as much as kanu, which only really leaves hughes, mullins, mokoena and (hopefully) mahoto. Defencivly, i'd hope to see either ward or hurst playing too - although I'd be happy too if we stuck with our first choice back 4, as they need to gel.

Mad is correct .. Brown is not cup tied and I hope will play with Yebda in the middle of a 4 man midfield

I think Dindane and Piquionne upfront would br great, but i think Hart will start with Webber.

Done Deal - Free agent Davies arrives

No sooner had I mused the central defensive options wondering would Cookie bring in another have we announced a deal for former Accrington man Tom Davies!

No longer a midfield option

Barton played most of his football for Pompey in central defence. He came to Fratton as a central midfielder but those days are behind him, as far as Cookie is concerned.

On this day in history...1st July

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 1st July.

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.
