Premier league survival!

Premier league survival!

'Premier league survival at the end of the season is what is most wanted', not my vote, yours - although these findings from PFCblue's poll are thoughts that I agree with, mostly...

Of course I want us to avoid relegation - who wants their own club to go down? Granted there can be some benefits but would you really wish this upon your club? No, you would not would you.

But, this said, so long as the players give it everything I will be happy come what may!

If we do go down, but go down with a fight and not a whimper doing ourselves proud, that will make me proud likewise. When all is said and done, whatever happens, no one will be able to take away from us what has happened, but forward looking is what we do now and the future could still be bright.

We are not going to go down anyway, we will fight our way out of trouble and go onto win the league cup too :-)

  • What the poll asked - At the end of the season what would you want for Pompey?

  • How you voted - Premiership survival 91%, Don't care 5%, Carling Cup winners 2%, FA Cup winners 2%

    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!

    If the players give it their all, we have a chance. If the fans back them, we have a chance. If camel breath doesn't come up with cash we are doomed.

    First he was Dr Dosh, now he's camel breath. Football is a cruel mistress.

    We won't survive with Hart in charge, it's not just team gelling it is management decisions that affect this run. Hart has a poor record on such matters and wasn't capable of winning much when he had star quality players and on current performance he won't win much with the current team. I really hope the rumours coming about a new manager search are true. It's stunning that he doesn't need an assistant! Humble pie would be good now but I dint think I will get to taste it

    Yeah we may survive if Mr Carisma goes on his merry way but we have to act sooner rather than later. How many games are we gonna give him. 8 played and 8 lost anyone! I don't dislike the man but just feel he is really out his depth. His managerial record does not tell me things are gonna get better. The sooner the club realize this the better chance of survival we will have. But it may be too late already.

    Some maths: 31 games left & we need 40 points 10 wins, 10 draws & 11 losses - anyone think we can do that?? We won 10 & drew 11 last season, I have major doubts we can do it this year given the appalling start we've had!
