Many changes! PUP
NorfolknBlue
Pompey: Begovic; Finnan, Ben Haim, Wilson, Hreidarsson; Mullins, Mokoena, Diop; Boateng, O’Hara; Piquionne Subs: Ashdown, Vanden Borre, Hughes, Yebda, Belhadj, Utaka, Dindane looks like its gonna be a messy game diop mullins and mokoena all playing in the same midfield. 5-0 to chelsea then guys
pompeyhussler
Hi People
Heard the team yet ? - Seven changes I hear .. waiting for confirmation
Chix
Hi ya Hussler
You beat me to it - What do you reckon of the team then?
Chix
Pompey make 7 changes. Pompey: Begovic; Finnan, Ben Haim, Wilson, Hreidarsson; Mullins, Mokoena, Diop; Boateng, O’Hara; Piquionne Subs: Ashdown, Vanden Borre, Hughes, Yebda, Belhadj, Utaka, Dindane
PFCblue
Sorry for the repeat - hussler beat me to it.
PFCblue
AG obviously wants to give all his players a chance to shine and play with a very solid backbone to the team. That is one point of view anyway!
eastneydave
Hi Ya Blue
What's your prediction then ?
Chix
Evening Ladies and Gents....Blimey! where the heck are we going to score from that line up?
pentonpompey
Hi ya Dave
A chance to shine eh - Let's hope so - Diop to score ?
Chix
It's a shame we've set up quite defensively rather than coming and taking the game to them, but as a defensive set up goes it's probably the best we could put out (given injuries etc). I think Piq is the right choice up front as he's got abit more physicality than Dindane which we'll need, and I think Mullins and Mokoena are actually OK at what they do, they just get a bad press because what they do is extremely boring. Gutted we've just come to 'park the bus' though, you just can't do that against the big teams - they have the firepower to get through eventually.
Battenberg
evening chix ,dave,penton,pfc blue hows tricks
coxy30
Hi guys...looks like it's going to be an exciting evening....
cornypomp
Hi Penton, Hi ya Battenburg
So it's going to be a 'Park the bus' then .. With the three 'holders' in midfield I can't see us getting past the half way line
Chix
Hi ya Coxy .. and Corney too
Exciting .. let's hope so
Chix
Half way line...you're optimistic Chix
cornypomp
Tell you what...halfway line; i'll get a nose bleed
pentonpompey
If anyone's interested I'm watching from Senegal on http://iraqgoals.net/epl2.html
PFCblue
Miffed...Can't get on Iraqgoals :-(
pentonpompey
Scary going over the halfway line....you never know what's on the other side....
cornypomp
LOL
Come on you guys you know I'm always positive - I'll even predict that we might get a corner too..
Chix
Here we go...
cornypomp
Kick- Off
We are underway - Come on you Blues..
Chix
Phew!!!! Chelski can do that all night ....miss from 3 yards I mean
cornypomp
Corns
Let's hope so - 3rd corner already !
Chix
hey hey everyone :D
pompeym@
myp2p good picture as well bonus
coxy30
It's all defending at the moment.
PFCblue
Hi ya m@
How you doing bud ? - Sounds like it's gonna be a night of one way traffic !
Chix
haha too true mate, but yea i'm good all the same thanks, you?
pompeym@
any reason Jamo's not playing? either way i'm happy Berg's in damn good keeper if ya ask me and he seems to be making so pretty good saves already.
pompeym@
Got a virus or something m@
cornypomp
First Goal......Grrrr>>>>>
cornypomp
Virus going round the camp!
eastneydave
0-1
PFCblue
1-0 you mean, '0-1' is abit misleading!
Battenberg
That's to Chelsea - Anelka
PFCblue
i wouldn't be surprised lol
pompeym@
Oh great! just got Iraq goals, and they tell me we're one down :-(
pentonpompey
Oh Well
We lasted 22 minutes - Still we have goals in us .. (lol)
Chix
Only one though Penton.....could be 1-1 @ half time....
cornypomp
evening guys - did not think we could hold out until half time...
great to see, as ever, we are playing 'round pegs in round holes'... NOT!
pompeyrug
goals in us, or goals against us :-)
pompeyrug
i meant shouldn't btw lol and that goal was always coming, we really need to push out of our box occasionally lol
pompeym@
i think it is obvious from the set-up that 'sitting back' was very much on the agenda tonight...
pompeyrug
yea but thats dangerous when we're playing the jinx that is mokoena in friggin defence...
pompeym@
Don't know about sitting back Rug...sounds like we are laid back. Take that back we've got a corner...
cornypomp
that is better, 'almost' something from nothing...
pompeyrug
Hows this then, can't get iraq goals or the bloody quay!! have no idea whats going on!!
pentonpompey
PFC site has the quay commentary remember :)
Battenberg
oh dea, better ball and we'dbe back draw, but this is much, much better!
pompeym@
wow my typings bad tonight lol
pompeym@
We're not actually looking TOO bad, touch wood - just soaking up the pressure (albeit not looking too comfortable doing so) and getting the odd half chance up top. And that's all it takes as long as we keep it at one - a half chance and abit of Avram's new-found luck!
Battenberg
Papa's on and he crocks one of our own! Ha Ha
pentonpompey
HT
Battenberg
1-0 at half time, not as bad as many owuld have though eh? lets 'hope' that we can put on alittle more pressure in the 2nd half like we did sunderland?
we MUST put more pressure on cech, get balls into the box as he is suspect...
pompeyrug
Painful watching! O'Hara is a waste of space. The rest not much better.
PFCblue
Getting to watch the game tonight was worse than waiting to get in the Milton end!!!
pentonpompey
I was about to say...Give me your opinions then lads
pentonpompey
not one of jamie's better games is it - i like the guy, but this is why he is NEVER worth around £7m like some think we should pay, if we had it...
pompeyrug
lol rug maybe, but when we paid that for friggin Utaka i'd say he's at least worth double XD
pompeym@
Sounds like we're pretty ragged overall though. Not enough belief. I'm hoping Avram swaps things around a bit for the second half. Gonna be a lot of Chelski pressure to come though. Still, could be worse than one goal down....come on Pompey
cornypomp
Rug
You are spot on mate - We need to get forward more and O'Hara is having a mare - We have 5 central midfielders on the pitch - Why ? - Grant teams lack passion at least with Hart we 'went for' teams .. Still we have the second half yet
Chix
Just watched the replay of the goal - Anelka was standing there unmarked!
PFCblue
Whats the betting someone says tonight...yeah lets hope we bring on Utaka to inject some pace...Ha Ha Ha Ha just as well put me on!
pentonpompey
Corns
That's a fair asseement Diop is the only bright spot for me but we have no chape (or width) whatsoever - Need to see Mokoena off - Boateng back in the middle and Belhadj on - In left midfield - Not straight away but soon I reckon
Chix
while its 1-0 we always have a chance. 90 mins equilizer then utaka. belhadj for mokoena
pompeyhussler
why the feck does no-one wana play belhadj and van borre on the wings, we need pace and they got it, in bucket loads...
pompeym@
Width has been our problem for ages, we'll need something special to crack this nut
pentonpompey
just cant belive how much it is for a ticket 48 quid !!
pompeyhussler
wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
pompeym@
YES!
Battenberg
Get in - That's better
Chix
Fans sound good though!!
pentonpompey
1-1 PIQUIONNE YOU GEM!!!!!
pompeym@
Piq, 1-1, GAME ON
Battenberg
1-1 Piqui
PFCblue
OMG!!!
pentonpompey
GoOOOAL !
FootyFans
how many pompey fans their !!??
pompeyhussler
Wahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
eastneydave
yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pompeyrug
Watching in Cornwall, having a great holiday and now this!
Lemmi
wow that was close from ballack.... lol we need to settle down again fast
pompeym@
come on u bluesssssssssssssssss i mean whites !!!
pompeyhussler
They'll be dangerous now, especially after Saturday.
Lemmi
Bloody typical.....I missed that Quay went dead!!!! Still Freddy to the rescue................PUP
cornypomp
arrr lovely play, only just off side, not convinced
pompeym@
I do understand..Honest...But we are soooooo deep, it's just inviting them. Hell they don't like it when it's in and around their area; they are jittery
pentonpompey
Come on Pompey
Keep your composure - They are rattled
Chix
Why the hell can't we keep possession better? Joe cole on.
pentonpompey
Hughes to break up Joe Cole play - a great sub and an instance reaction to Ancelloti - Well done Avram
Chix
Hughes for Diop... think we will need some more of Avram's luck to see this out!
Battenberg
Oh *****tttte....Richard bloody Hughes!
pentonpompey
hmm hughesie might be able to help with that penton but in place of diop? really?
pompeym@
arrr boateng, how'd ya miss that lol terrible defending
pompeym@
Oh my God I can't stand It KPB...............
cornypomp
WHAT A CHANCE!!!!!
pentonpompey
And again!!!
pentonpompey
Iraqgoals has frozen, what's going on?
Lemmi
Sounds like the Herminator's in the mix...Get stuck in Herman
cornypomp
I hope we don't regret that KBP miss.....bloody hell
cornypomp
You know what, I think we've played this almost perfectly so far. Avram Grant's blue and white army
Battenberg
Misses...corny
pentonpompey
damn it, my streams gone and now so has the quay :(
pompeym@
Well played Bego
cornypomp
I've a feeling we're bedding down for a draw...Dangerous!!!!
pentonpompey
Yeah I just hope we don't drop too deep....or we'll get sucker punched
cornypomp
Why did freddies face look to me like he was faking it?
pentonpompey
Hello chaps!!! Cringing as the reports come in from sky sports news & hoping we can hold on??? ***** they've got a penalty. Wilson rash challange!!! Lampard scores.
storagematt
:(
Battenberg
Rollocks - Come on Pompey throw everything at them
Chix
I lost coverage, get it back on and guess what?
pentonpompey
Nothing to lose now..gotta go for it..
cornypomp
Wilson eh?....
pentonpompey
Sounds like Dinner Plate is pretty ineffective...
cornypomp
well can't get the quay and i can't get a stream so i'm pretty screwed as far as match coverage goes.....
pompeym@
******** chelski! come on, ONE last chance, please...
pompeyrug
KPB's misses were costly
pentonpompey
what a chance that was that the prince missed back along, WHY did he not just hit it first time?!?!?
pompeyrug
Hi all - are we winning?
gandor1
Come on Pompey last minute equaliser......please
cornypomp
yep, the were penton...
pompeyrug
Giving away far too many penalties, bleedin' gifting sides goals!!!
storagematt
Into added time but they nearly got a third!
storagematt
Fighting hard!
eastneydave
i think we have to take some positives from this 2nd half tho, right?
pompeyrug
You're right Matt, easy penalties...How many this season???
pentonpompey
All over
Battenberg
Yep.....I think we can Rug. If we can put a display together like that against Bin Dippers...who knows?
cornypomp
All over. Must take the good points & get something from the game with the bin dippers.
storagematt
Yh rug we have to take positives, we played great and even scored, but Marc Wilson shouldnt of gone to ground. Also we had chances to win it.
PompeyFcMad
the bin dippers ARE there for the taking, if we want it enough and show alittle more intent - which we 'should' as the home side...
pompeyrug
Well at least we didn't get a hiding.
gandor1
you learn from your mistakes - i still think the guy has had a good season and does not look out of place in the side.
pompeyrug
pff, yea agreed gandor but still it hurts to lose that way..
pompeym@
That wasn't bad you know, overall! Bloody Marc Wilson again making the rash choice!...Still not convinced about him. Don't mean to sound as if i'm shifting the blame, but he has made some howlers this season
pentonpompey
Yeah you're right Gandor, we didn't get a hiding. In fact although we lost I feel quite pleased that we took them to the wire.
cornypomp
then again who hasnt made howlers to be fair - and the others are much more experienced than him...
pompeyrug
sounds much better thzn i was expecting!
