Stick the pin in...that will do!

What does the wonderful world of Mark Lawrenson, the so-called BBC's 'expert pundit', have to offer us this week? Lets see...

Looking at his column on BBC Sport, Lawro's predictions - here, I see that he has us down for, yep you guessed it another defeat at Hull, having surprisingly tipped us to hold Spurs last week...

This is what he said: 'Hull never looked like scoring against Fulham and really struggled. At least they have improved in their home games.

'Pompey have played better than their results suggest but both teams are at the wrong end of the table. I think they'll be both down there at the end of the season as well. This game is a 24-pointer! I'm seeing this as a relegation dogfight already!

'Verdict: 1-0.'

Boy am I glad that he fully justified the reasons why Hull will win and we will lose, had he not explained this I would have been at a loss - oh, hang on he has not given any reasons at all apart from saying 'both teams are rubbish.'

Clearly he stuck in a pin, rolled a dice or tossed a coin on this one as there seems to be little reasoning to his thoughts - unlike other predictions he made. Hull and Pompey must be beneath him, although of course the bin dippers will 'brush aside' their worst form in over 20-years to claim a point against Manyoo, simples...

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league - Hull (a) - 24/10/09.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I reckon we are going to give them a bloody good hiding tomorrow, and about time someone gets it. Dindane, Smith and Boateng each getting one.

I predict a Pompy win, Hull are terrible and i think youl win comfortably. Alas, if you lose however you are as good as relegated

They've got a talented trio in Hunt, Geovanni and Bullard. However Hunt is prone to hot-headedness, Geovanni drifts in and out and Bullard isn't fully fit. We can win but it won't be a push over.

We have to win, Huddersfieldyiddo is not right yet but he will be if we don't beat Wigan. My tenner is on a Pompey win by 1 goal with a nerv racking last 10 mins.

Lawro doesn't get very many right you know, I don't think we should pay too much attention to what he says at all. As for being relegated if we do lose, it might well just be the catalyst for a new manager, and that might make all the difference. Like another club I can think of last season.

Cookie pleased with Bournemouth showing

You cannot always gage too much from pre-season can you. Although the game with Bournemouth tends to again show Pompey have goals in us this season...but we'll concede them too?

Pompey and Bournemouth play out 3-3 draw

Those who turned up in the Fratton sunshine for Alan McLoughlin's benefit match with Bournemouth would view it as an afternoon well spent with it value for money.
