'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Yep, just like last weeks eh Lawro!

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, after last weeks 'there's no bias intended' at all with him under the 'deluded' impression that Liverpool would be 'too much' for us, he feels that as West Ham and Pompey are 'scrambling for a victory' we will 'cancel each other out'.

This is what he said: 'for West Ham read Portsmouth, and for Portsmouth read West Ham, such are the similarities of many of the problems that both club's have.

'They both might have to sell in January and are desperate for points.

'Quite often when two teams who are scrambling for a victory meet, they cancel each other out and the match ends in a draw.

'Verdict: 1-1'

Ok, fair enough, but SURELY Liverpool were 'scrambling' as much for a victory as anyone last weekend so based on your logic Lawro should you not have expected that game to have seen each other cancelled out? Yet you still, with 'no bias' at all, felt the bin dippers would win.

To be honest I would take a point today, although I feel we can get more...

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league - West Ham - 26/12/09.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Can't see us getting much, we're pretty useless away from home. But I never lose faith.

I think not getting beat is what we would settle for & a Pompey win be just wonderful. However, we don't seem to have a winning metality on the road. I'll settle for a 1-1 score.
