Match Day Live - Wolves v Pompey

Despite our run of seven straight league defeats the performance against Everton last Saturday was the best of the season and if manager Paul Hart has managed to pick his troops up again then the prospects of points are good.

Pompey have sold all of their allocation of over 1,500 seats for the game which certainly shows the fans have not lost faith for this key game as the Blues try to eventually kick start their season. This is the place to be to discuss the game so get posting members.

Steve Finnan makes his debut in place of Anthony Vanden Borre and Aaron Mokoena pays the price for a number of below par performances losing his place to Hassan Yebda.

For the home side Kevin Foley comes back in for the injured Segundo Castillo.

morning guys... been away from pc for a few days... what the chuffing hell is going on... just as we thought we were heading in a direction turning away from s**t creek we seem to have got the rudder stuck ready to head down the rapids without a paddle in view! anyway, enough analogies. ive decided to the unsaintly thing... ive put £50 in to my b365 account and put £30 on wolves to win, £10 on wolves to win by 1 goal and £10 for wolves to win to nil (ie pompey not to score after wolves score). for this is a "win-win" situation. because either i make a "shed load" of cash (it is for a mere recently turned graduate who is unemployed) OR pompey get at least a point on the board (which could be argued may be worth MORE than the £60-70 profit I would make). i would have also put a cheeky 5er on kevin doyle to score - the kid looks good at this level. on a mere supporters note, i really really really would like us to NOT conceed (yes i lose £50) but it would mean that just for once we were able to contain a team - hopefully without conceeding we may actually go the other end and bang on in. somewhere along the line, one team is going to get absolutely battered... and a lot think wolves, i just think it may be still a bit too "early". + al hansen thinks wolves will win and he doesnt have any tinted glasses on. lets get behind the team, but lets get real as well. this is going to be a tough match. sorry for long post - had a heavy night and just blurting on. PUPPPU =)
pompey--pessimist
To be honest though after losing 7 in a row it has become hard to see where we're gonna win. Although if we can carry last weeks performance and a bit of luck into todays game then we are due a win, or atleast scoring more than once in a game. Quietly confident with us getting a result today, we'll c come 5pm. PUP!
moley2
Pessimist betting against your own side?? Whatever next.

moley2 glad you are confident.
eastneydave
chuffed! just found out I've got our game live on TV

Looks as if Hart has dropped Mokoena! HURRRAAAAYYY. Yebda and Finnan in.
Ziggstix
Looks like it might be our strongest available team
paultsmouth
still no belhadj?
PompeyJoe
I wouldn't say I'm confident, but I'm hopeful. After all after 7 defeats in a row how can you be confident, you just want the pain to stop! but I'm really hoping we will get something today and turn this horrible horrible run around.
tracyc
skybet are saying that Pompey are one of the most backed sides today!
paultsmouth
Teams are now above boys and girls. Glad Harty has Axed the Axe (Mokoena) and not stuck by his skipper. Yebda deserves his chance. As to Vanden Borre he has played better of late but his place may lie on the right side of midfield.
eastneydave
Brown on the left?
paultsmouth
Started well!
eastneydave
Bright start
paultsmouth
Afternoon all, are we looking for all 3 today or would anyone be happy with 1?
PompeyFrippy
I reckon we will go for all 3 mate, 1 at worst
paultsmouth
Glad I dropped Defoe for Gardner in my FF team anyway, Jamie's Dad must be on his way now.

PompeyFrippy
YEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Yabba Yebda doo!! Now how do I write about and Pompey league win?? Find out tomorrow in Toast.
eastneydave
We defended the second with luck holding out for us the tide has turned
race
JAMO man of the match for me! Kaboul was solid and Yebda looks very promising.
nodster
WE'VE WON!!!!! WE'VE WON!!!!! I could cry!
tracyc
That was soooooo! nerve whacking at the end but yessss! first win and points. A big well done to Pompey.
PompeyFcMad
Yebda, Jamo and Boateng the stars. Can't fault the others though.
stillthewhizz
Good to here the fans chanting 'PHs blue army'. Brilliant Jamo save, agree Kaboul was solid, but mostly a good all-round performance.
PFCblue
Oh the beer will flow tonight
race
Jamo had a brilliant save but once again was a little over ambitious coming off his line a number of times. Someone needs to have a word with him and try to get him to calm down a bit.
pompeywa
Well that just about closes that game and I expect most members - well those old enough - are having a celebratory drink. Hopefully Chix will be back for the next away game but thanks for joining me!!
eastneydave
great result, point at spurs, win the match after and we are right back in it. Well done PH, great managing, great side. Boateng looks class, Ben Haim looked good, Smith looked great, Dindane looks awesome, pompey can still get out of the rut
PompeyJoe
Yebda dabba do.
Squee
Well played Pompey! great to see PH and the players reaction at the whistle....great commitment...3 precious pts
BarneyArmy
Joe - you have it spot on the players are beginning to perform. Spurs reject Boateng is starting to make the pundits sit up and the other so called 'championship' players are all improving and fitting together well. They are playing like a team and playing for each other. Maybe good times ahead at last.
