The kiss of death!

The kiss of death!

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 a WIN, that is right a win! I had to check several times to make sure...

This is what he said: 'I feel sorry for Paul Hart, every time Portsmouth look to be moving on there has been a kick in the teeth. On the field they have been playing better than results suggest.

'Wigan are big, strong and in your face but they still try and play, though away from home they have not totally convinced.

'Verdict: 2-1.'

This worries me, Lawro hardly ever has us down for a win, and more to the point is not often right anyway, I know that his last 3 Pompey predictions have all been wrong. He went for a 1-1 with Wolves - we won 1-0, a 1-1 with Spurs - we lost 2-1 and a 1-0 defeat against Hull - we drew 0-0.

In actual fact I also felt a 2-1 coming on, but I bet he has jinxed this now...

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league - Wigan (h) - 31/10/09.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

If we are not up for this & take the cahnces that come our way, we'll lose. Wigan have won at FP on a few ocassions. I think PH needs to have a few forwards in their faces, not hiding on the wings. Get the midfield up & at them from the word go.

Well we all know the definition of an "EXPERT" don't we..... I'm going for a 4-0 Wigan win as a counter prediction.

So for the last 3 games he has got our score right and only been one out for the opposition. 2-2 or even 2-0 it is then.

We will win. Another nice clean sheet; 2-0. We must be very strong mentally after that nice win against Stoke. PuP.
