NIRVANA OR NADIR?

After the burst of games over Easter it now feels like one game a month, the anxiety between games is chest-tightening bad for the health, safety is so close yet we know it could spin round in a couple of minutes. At the time of writing, I don’t know which team will be the more nervous, Pompey or the Brum.

On the plus side for Pompey, should be the availability of Mendes and Lua Lua again, both making progress from their injuries. Also Wigan have more or less conceded defeat in their European quest and may relax a little more than normal.

Pompey’s edginess has shown in the last three games and I for one expect it to be evident again at the JJB, one bonus will be the support of 5,200 Pompey fans to roar on the blues and make it feel like a home game.

Newcastle are the form side in the Premiership at the moment with five straight wins, a UEFA spot is still a realistic target and they should represent a difficult opponent for our survival rivals, there is also the return of a certain Michael Owen to take into account, who will have a point to prove before the World cup in six weeks.

What we need now is our old captain to sit down with his team-mates and do us a last service by laying down the law,” time to relax lads, they need the points more than us, no point in getting injured for your holidays” (Here’s wishful thinking)

Well it could be all over....it is now. Famous words from Kenneth Wolstenholme in the dying seconds of England's World Cup win. Let's hope that 40 years later the commentator at Wigan repeats this at the JJB (As Pompey win and the news filters through from St.Andrews that Brum can only draw)...Do we really want to wait another 8 days ?

On this day in history...30th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
