Pompey the 'sort of ground' Manyoo will be ok at

Pompey the 'sort of ground' Manyoo will be ok at

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 the 'football expert' is looking to make it two correct predictions on the spin after correctly predicting that we would get beaten at Stoke last weekend, as we were, although not 2-1 as he thought...

He 'bravely' predicts that Manyoo will come to Fratton and win as they are 'more than capable of going to these - Fratton - sorts of grounds and dealing with pressure.'

This is what he said: 'Portsmouth sacked their manager this week so that usually means some sort of improvement in results.

'I do feel a bit sorry for Paul Hart because once you knew Avram Grant was going to be involved in the football club we all sort of knew, if Hart lost a couple of games, who the next manager was going to be.

'United are more than capable of going to these sorts of grounds and dealing with the pressure.

'Verdict: 0-2'

When being realistic, I guess you have to agree with 'Lawro', as I did reluctantly did last week when we faced Stoke - although it takes a braver man to predict what we will happen though, and Lawro is not man enough to go for the Pompey win, as it clearly will be!

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league - Manyoo (h) - 28/11/09.

Manyoo are very capable of winning at these types of ground, after all they did not slip up at Turf Moor did they?

Well, the chances are he's probably right. But football ain't an exact science is it.....anything can happen. Whether it will or not remains to be seen, but as long as the lads get in their faces there's always a chance. A slim one maybe, but nothings impossible. PUP....come on you Blues.

History has shown that FP is very much a ground ManU can slip up at!

If he's so clever why doesn't he win the football pools? Oh, I forgot, he doesn't need to - the BBC pay him more for being wrong.
