There's no bias intended...
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', having seen a run of 3 right predictions - if not results - come to an end against Sunderland, he went for them to win, when we drew, fancies us to lose against Liverpool tomorrow.
Although 'there's no bias intended' in anything he says...
This is what he said: 'Portsmouth got a good draw with a late equaliser last Saturday and by all accounts produced a decent performance as well at Chelsea.
'There's no doubt that Portsmouth's performances have not been reflected in the number of points they've won - they are a little better than their points tally would suggest.
'Predicting the result with Liverpool at the moment is almost impossible, not least because you can't second guess manager Rafa Benitez in terms of the team he is going to play.
'Having said that, I think that after the win against Wigan in midweek I'm going to go for a Liverpool victory. There's no bias intended in that, I just wonder if they might now string a bit of a run together.
Bulls**t there is no bias Lawro! Although then again I guess you could argue that I show Pompey bias - some would even say a 'blinkered bias' - in thinking Pompey will win :-)
If nothing else now I want us to win just to shut the muppet up, although clearly on MOTD, if we do win, it will be the bin dippers throwing it away and not us winning...
What do we think guys - assuming this game even goes ahead?
Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league - Liverpool - 19/12/09.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
