Match Day Live - Hull City v Pompey

"Victory is vital" said Paul Hart, but will Pompey deliver against that other team certain of relegation ? Join Chix and the boys before, during and after the action unfolds from the KC Stadium.

A must win game or would a point be OK ?

A loss is unthinkable, isn't it ?

I think we all agree that our recent performances have not yeilded the points we deserved so hopefully this can be rectified this afternoon.

Kick-off is at 3pm so however you are following the action post a few comments below along the way and hopefully we can chat as our boys bring home the bacon

Afternoon all..
I've no idea why my orange text in the article is turning green .. Maybe Hull will play in green just to help me out !..... Anyway what do we want - A win at all costs ? or will a point do ?
Chix
We've got to get something from this game this afternoon. A loss can't even be contemplated for the simple reason of the gap that would widen at the foot of the table and also the massive blow to morale that would follow. Three points on the other hand would put us right in the mix again (if WH loose tomorrow) and give us a big boost too, and maybe get a few of the sceptics to think again on our ability to remain in the EPL. Will a point do?.....of course, but it gives Hull one as well, and we must try to maximise our points against those that are going to be around us at the foot of the table.
cornypomp
Corny
Hi ya mate - You ok ?... Yeah I'm expecting a win too (and for WHU to lose tomorrow) Even three of the four Sky pundits have predicted us to win .. The one that didn't was Le Toss .. but even he went for a draw ...
Chix
It's nearly kick-off time
Chix
Come on you Blues
Chix
Afternoon all, I got a good feeling about today.
PompeyFrippy
Frippy
Hi ya Fripps - You listening on the Quay ?
Chix
i also have a good feeling about today 3-0 win about time we convert good play to points but will take a scrappy 1-0 all day long
knocker
Knocker
Hope you are right mate .. but surprised O'Hara is the defending midfieider though
Chix
i know mokoena must be banging them in training to be further up the field than o hara
knocker
Indeed I am Chix, I got also got a stream on the go but it's not very slick.
PompeyFrippy
Yeah Ok Chix.... well sort of, I'm a bag of nerves. Listening on 5 live, how's you by the way mate? Afternoon Frippy & Knocker... Just gotta win this one, hope those good feelings come to fruition...eh!
cornypomp
All
Yeah I'm cool now I'm back home.. after spending a month in a hotel ... Gotta say that Hunt is their player to stop so far ...
Chix
Alrighty Corny, pretty scrappy so far, glad to have O'Hara back though.
PompeyFrippy
McShane trying to get Kaboul booked for challenge on Giovanni .. He was late though
Chix
I've got about a 5 minute lag here on the Quay so reverted to R5Live. PUP
NorfolknBlue
I got the Quay with very little lag (less than 10 seconds) off the OS.
PompeyFrippy
Finnan is sooo slow
Chix
I'm on Iraqgoals... perfect picture...
Chix
Sounds like we haven't got a grip yet....
cornypomp
Very Edgy game ... Hull look awful at the back but Giovanni & Hunt look useful further up the park .. pheww..... another mistake in the Hull box .. We need to press them they are awful
Chix
Afternoon gents...Wots it been like?...Poor??
pentonpompey
Corny ..
we look very narrow and it is because Mok is not at the back of the diamond .. he drifts inside far too much .. we need to swap him and O'Hara over
Chix
Hull have been poor and we have matched them, very similar to the match last season, dull.
PompeyFrippy
Hi ya Penton
We are doing ok .. but if we took it too them a little more it might pay off ... They lok for Mendy down the right.. Giovanni down the middle and Hunt on the left ... but that is all they have .. their back 4 loss very shaky ...
Chix
We don't sound like we're gonna score if we play till Xmas
pentonpompey
Play up Pompey, Pompey play up
Chix
Penton
We will score ... Definately
Chix
b>Pompey score … Pompey score …. Coz when we get one we’ll get more ….
Chix
I do hope so Chix, i'd hate to come down to the Wigan game needing to get the result that saves our season
pentonpompey
SMITHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pentonpompey
Great run by O'Hara.. touch on by Dindane.. ohh Tommy Smith ... ohh.......
Chix
Oh Smiffy!!!!!!
cornypomp
That's what happens when O'Hara gets forward
Chix
hey ya fellas, start installing windows 7 about 3 hours ago and only just finished :/ have i missed much?
pompeym@
We just have to score against this shower
pentonpompey
A deflection that went our way ..
Chix
Hi ya M@
I think we are just the better side .. playing ok and not really under threat but need to press them more .. they are really shakey at the back
Chix
Half-time... Patience fella it'll come... Now where's me Stella
Chix
Macca is scathing
pentonpompey
How far behind is the Quay ???... I've just watched the players go off and they are still comentating .. must be at least five moins .. or more .. maybe 15 ...
Chix
Some solace, scummers are losing. We need some spark second half, I may be alone here but I'd like to see Utaka on the bench, he'd terrify the Hull defence if he came on with 20 minutes to go.
PompeyFrippy
ain't missed too much then, bugger i was hoping to come in and we'd have scored 5... oh wait that was a dream never mind haha ;D
pompeym@
From the commentary sounds like a dire game. Just found that Iraq Goals, thanks for the tip Chix.
Lemmi
My Quay is about 10 seconds ahead of the Iraqgoals stream, are you on the OS Chix?
PompeyFrippy
Just switched to the OS .. The Quays own site was 12 minutes behind !!
Chix
from the bit ive heard and the comments, we're both going down...not good enough eh?
pentonpompey
I wouldn't rate us by 45 minutes against a poor Hull team penton. See what Hart has up his sleeves at HT, this is where managers show their worth. He needs to do something. Belhadj anyone?
PompeyFrippy
Take off Mokoena, by the sound of it he's not doing anything.
Lemmi
Scummers are losing to Franchise FC.
Lemmi
Frippy
I'd rather see O'Hara switch with Mok or Mullins come on for Mok and then do the swap ...
Chix
Yeah we're going to have to step it up Penton... Can't understand Hart's placing of Mokawenna....wrong spelling I know!
cornypomp
Why don't those *****ers who phone the Quay .. just put a sock in it ... I'd love to meet one or two of them... I bet they are all stewards at Fratton Park eh Lemmi !
Chix
Is that bar stewards?
Lemmi
Looks like we all agree about Mokoena though ...
Chix
Lemmi
'Bar' Stewards at Fratton - A pie seller would be nice !
Chix
As someone once said 'What is the point of that man?'
Lemmi
Sorry Frippy I didn't explain myself. It appears that by the standard of the football being played, we're both destined for the drop. I know we're better, the players know we're better, we need to mix things up and take the game to them or we are sunk!
pentonpompey
Putting Mok in front of the back 4 is where he is suited, I don't understand why Hart hasn't put him there yet, and likewise for O'Hara on the wing. Let's look at it this way, we played great against Villa, Bolton, Spurs and City and got nothing. We we're average against Wolves and won, seen as we are below average today, we should win by 3 or 4 goals. That's how it works, right?
PompeyFrippy
Oh they're back out. Maybe Mokoena should be selling the pies, instead on being on the pitch.
Lemmi
PLAY UP POMPEY!!!
pentonpompey
It isn't pretty is it penton. Any neutrals who are watching this match will no doubt be seeing it as two 'dead certs' for relegation.
PompeyFrippy
Second Half underway
Come on Pompey .. get us three points
Chix
Hull have come out to try and take us ... We need NOT to sit back and take it ... ***** em up get into em
Chix
Cheers for the iraquigoals stream Chix
pentonpompey
Looks like O'Hara has switched to the left... Oh Finnan is down.. overstretched to clear from Hunt
Chix
Welcome mate
Chix
Keep the Quay on mute though in case it drops out
Chix
We seem to lack imagination in their half, I know we're nervy...but we will be forever unless we do something about it!
pentonpompey
Pompey score … Pompey score …. Coz when we get one we’ll get more ….
Chix
Pents
We need to get the ball in their box .. ... That's were the damage will be done..
Chix
Pents
We need to get the ball in their box .. ... That's were the damage will be done..
Chix
ooh that was close! good old Jamo.
Lemmi
Anyone know why Hull do that silly thing where they pick up the ball and put it down before they take the free kick?
PompeyFrippy
Listening to this is driving me crazy....thank God for Jamo!!! Come on Pompey..
cornypomp
I wish my missus went down as long as this iraquigoals does!! ha ha
pentonpompey
We are pressing more .. just need to put our foot on it and look for the right ball... If I were Hart .. I'd sub Smith for Kanu..
Chix
It's been ok so far for me Penton
Lemmi
How many times will Mokoena give the ball away before he gets taken off.
PompeyFrippy
Mokoena give it away again!
Lemmi
Fripps
That thing with the ball is nutty innit ...
Chix
Mokoena needs to come off.. he's getting worse..
Chix
ohh .... DIndane... ...ohh ... Kaboul
Chix
........
pompeym@
Score in a minute
Chix
That's more like it Pompey .. Come on !
Chix
Oh COME ON BOYS!!!!
pentonpompey
Arrgh not another miss!
Lemmi
This is better. Come on Pompey.
PompeyFrippy
AHHHHHi'm gonna go insane 1 of these have to go in right?
pompeym@
Why is Smith coming off and not Mokoena?
Lemmi
Smith off...Piccy on
pentonpompey
We must score surely.
Lemmi
Lemmi I have no idea....trouble is neither does Paul Hart!
pentonpompey
Piq to hold the ball up for Dindane .. I would've gone Kanu .. but the right idea from Paul Hart
Chix
Come on Pompey.....I'm in a pool of sweat here!
cornypomp
no idea lemmi, no idea... grant'll be here by next game right? and hes better with tactics lol
pompeym@
Penton
You'll eat those words in about ten mins... We will score and Dindane will benefit from Piqs contribution ..
Chix
Handball ??? - Oh I dunno
Chix
hope your right chix but i really don't see it lol
pompeym@
Come on you Blues
Chix
Kanu would have been a better choice, but keeping Smith on
Lemmi
M@
We have 20 mins yet .. don't panic we are by far the better side at the mo.. It will come ..
Chix
We're definately the better side this half, but we just can't score.
Lemmi
Lemmi
Smith was run out .... he gives too much and Dindane is more of a threat
Chix
bring on belhadj for mokoena!
pompeym@
I'll come ... Keep convincing yourselves.. there's still 18 + to go and now they have taken their best player off ??
Chix
Fair enough Chix, but I Mokoena still on. I agree m@ bring on Belhadj.
Lemmi
"Don't know what your doing", I hope they're right.
PompeyFrippy
If we win this Phil Brown is gonna get murdered for that subsitution
Chix
We must get players in the box !!
Chix
hull have conceded more goals in the last 15 than anyone else so thats a good omen but 1 major thing is that we ain't scored in the last 15 this season....
pompeym@
We've had trouble scoring in the first 90 minutes m@!
Lemmi
well thats true but my point still stands :P
pompeym@
It'll come..
Have faith ..
Chix
Last ten
Come on you blues
Chix
arrg running out of charge on my laptop, will have to find my charger.
Lemmi
unfortunatly my faith is running try at the minute... but i'd accept an away draw i think
pompeym@
It's coming.. it's coming...
Come on Pompey .... They don't like it up 'em
Chix
I'm back , charger on. Did I miss anything?
Lemmi
Chixys Sub..
Belhadj for Ben Haim .. Push forward...
Chix
Our crossing looks woeful.
stillthewhizz
Lemmi
Nothing yet .. but keeper has dropped it ...
Chix
WTF!!!!!
pompeym@
We need a goal from this free kick.
Lemmi
Here it comes..
O'Hara ??
Chix
Stoke are beating Spuds.
Lemmi
3 more minutes, we can do it.
Lemmi
naa ya can't score from that short a distance unless your name is ronaldo, ronaldinho, beckham or kaka
pompeym@
Come on Pompey....last minute goal.....pleeeeeeeeeseeee
cornypomp
"£$%^&*()£$%^&*()
pompeym@
Here comes Younes ...
Chix
Their Keeper has been shot
Chix
oh great and now myhill's rolling around get him off and let us play for another minute or so ffs
pompeym@
This could be interesting as they've used all their subs.
Lemmi
They have used all three subs... Where is lady luck .. we really need her now
Chix
Pack the box.. and SHOOT .. on target
Chix
hey chix..
FootyFans
had to make a new account - lost my password!
FootyFans
THAT WAS NOT 2 FECKING MINUTES!!!!!
pompeym@
iT'S NOT ENOUGH I'M AFRAID...
pentonpompey
Don't think either side is happy with that. We need someone to score for us, it's just not happening.
PompeyFrippy
Well at least it's a point, but we needed all 3.
Lemmi
Ah well a point away from home .. not such a bad thing .. worse for them than us ... and let's not forget .. we didn't lose !!!
Chix
What was that all about? Hull should have been beaten!
cornypomp
We'll be up first on MOTD tonight withot a doubt.
PompeyFrippy
We'll be up first on MOTD tonight withot a doubt.
PompeyFrippy
We'll be up first on MOTD tonight withot a doubt.
PompeyFrippy
Roll on Wigan next week.
Lemmi
maybe but we didn't score and there is no way in hell we can stay up if we don't start scoring soon and this was the perfect oppitunity to kick start our season, but yea over all can't be unhappy with a point away from home i suppose
pompeym@
Birminghan win and so do Wigan 3-1 away from home !!.. umm not looking good is it ?
Chix
Yes Frippy, Lineker will be full of praise and not sarcastic at all.
Lemmi
Shall I say it one more time?
PompeyFrippy
Yeah....that's what I was trying to add up Chix. Could have done without them winning.
cornypomp
The league table looks a lot worse now .. we are gonna get cut adift unless we win very soon ...
Chix
I can nearly here him droning already Lemmi, it'll be something like, "Our stat guys have come up with this one; Pompey have only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 15 games and Hull only kept 3 at home since arriving in the Premiership, so plenty of goals here then *eyes roll*"
PompeyFrippy
We'd better start next week then,
Lemmi
Frippy I say that's probably word for word. If it is, can you pick my lottery numbers next week?
Lemmi
Believe me i'm trying...But I honestly think we're down already. I know it's a point todayand we didn't lose. But!...we are not going to get out of this. I have seen nothing today in us that gives me ANY hope we can turn this around. Paul Hart needs help and quick!!
pentonpompey
Hull were poor and we were only a grain better. We should have hammered a team like that. Still only 3 points behind this time in 2004-5 and we reached 38 so still hoping for the miracle.
PFCblue
A miracle Blue...with our luck all we're get is a Mackerel
pentonpompey
It'll need a "Miracle" Blue if we keep performing like this. A point ok..but we've dropped 2. Feel pretty gutted at the moment.
cornypomp
You've summed it up Corny...And I hate the phrase, but I really feel totally GUTTED...
pentonpompey
Me too Penton, me too..... Wossat Bowls team you're supporting Chix?
gandor1
I think Gandor it's the Fratton Fogie flyers...
pentonpompey
what was mokoena doing on the pitch for 90mins and still no belhadj..... play him left wing they were their for the taking today their defence is slow and hart didnt have the guts to attack them with pace on the wings . !!! i would have gone with belhadj ahead of mokoena . and we would of won.. hart has had too many bad descisions and mokoena must be his bum buddie and is gonna get him sacked.
pompeyhussler
the oc has removed the threat article against the saudi paper and the guardian are quoting that its all true again, and that the saudi article was ligit....
ruffcider
Cheers cider, that's really cheered me up...Ha Ha...SERGEY: Rope!!!
pentonpompey
sorry penton....
