Good luck Jimmy!

Good luck Jimmy!

I know that Jimmy Bullard is not a Pompey player, never has been and most likely never will be, so really I should not give a stuff what happens to him, but I REALLY hope that the results of his latest knee injury come back positively.

The guy is one of the games most likable characters - some would argue that he was a mercenary as he left Fulham for Hull as they offered him more?

I could not say, what I can say is that he is a footballer that wears his heart on his sleeve, plays the game as you like it to be played and does this with a smile on his face.

It is NO accident that Hull's form has improved since Bullard returned to the side, so technically - as his continued presence in the side could hurt us - I 'should' want him out for longer as Hull are a relegation rival!

I do not though, as I like the guy, and as much as I would not wish injury on anyone, there are some you would want this to happen to even less - for me, he is one of those people.

After a long time out with a knee injury you could see how distraught he was when he picked up another injury against Villa at the weekend - the good, or maybe bad, news was that this was not the same knee as last time, if that is a saving grace...

Like I say, whilst his absence 'might' see Hull struggle more, I genuinely hope that the results of his knee scan come back favourable for him and his absence from the game will not be too long.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Hear, hear. The sort of player I think most of us would love to see wear a Pompey shirt, for his guts, commitment and character. Wish him well.

Good article Rug. It says a lot that the Villa fans gave him a standing ovation as he came off on Saturday. A great player with a great personality, I heard today that the swelling isn't as bad as first imagined so let's hope he's back in football soon.

hmm i share you thoughts almsot entirely but there is that evil part of me that thinks the longer he's out the worse Hull do and the worse they do the better it is for us.... i know i shouldn't think that but its true ain't it, either way i DO hope he gets better cause he is a very likable guy and a great player

As much as I don't wish ill anyone, Hull were starting to kick into action because of Bullard. A weakened Hull can only be a good thing for us.

I was truly gutted for the lad when I saw him limping off on MOTD. Given a clean bill of health throughout his career, but like Owen's career his has been blighted by misfortune (albeit in Owen's early days he truly made his mark).

Meant to say given a clean bill of health he could have been fantastic...

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
