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

A rare hat-trick?

When thinking, or should I say typing, aloud earlier I pondered the thought 'when did we last win back-to-back games, let alone 3 games in a row,' something we are - 3 in a row - aiming for tomorrow night...

The back-to-back victories, before the league win at Burnley and of course FA cup quarter final win at Fratton against Birmingham, is the 2nd time this season we have managed this - having beaten Coventry in a 3rd round replay and then Sunderland in the 4th round in our next game, but it is some 15-months since we last managed 3 wins on the spin!

Between 30th August and 18th September 2008 we went on an unbeaten run winning 3 games in a row against Everton (a), Boro (h) and Vitoria (h).

Our best run of unbeaten games this season stands at 4...

Between 2nd January and 31st January 2010, when we lost to Citeh (a), we had drawn with Coventry (h), beaten Coventry (a), beaten Sunderland (h) and drawn with West Ham (h).

Our best run of results unbeaten before this was about a year ago when we went on a 5 game unbeaten run...

Between 14th March and 22nd April, when we lost at Manyoo (a), we drew with Boro (a), beat Everton (h), drew with Hull (a), drew with West Brom (h) and beat Bolton (h).

Before this we also had a 5 game unbeaten run late in 2008, this was achieved between 8th November and 4th December 2008, when we lost against Wolfsburg (g), as we beat Sunderland (a), drew with West Ham (a), drew with Hull (h), drew with Milan (h) and beat Blackburn (h).

They say wins breed confidence, so having won our last 2 games we go into the home game with Birmingham tomorrow in 'good spirits', right?

So lets hope we can complete our first hat-trick of wins on the bounce in 15-months or so with another over the Brummies eh!

Much like losing, as we have found, they say winning becomes a habit - the longer we can stretch an unbeaten run, and the more wins this can include along the way, the more anything is possible...

hmm i never like having to play the same team so close they always want revenge, either way i'm sure it'll be as good a game as the last if not more so if their players are as hungry as ours this time

The club is in the shop window so it is important that playwrs and fans put in a good show, even better if Pompey win.

Lets hope the feeding frenzy in the national press doesn't get out of hand again as they campaign for us to be expelled from the FA Cup due to the clubs debts...worst of all was the fat moronic west ham supporting news reader from Talk Snot who berated us...."West Ham supporting" did i hear you quote me..yes and he has the nerve to say we should be kicked out of the cup for going into administration whilst his club played the Argentinean twins for half a season and got poor old Sheff Utd relegated. The truth is and always has been..the press feel like they are 5tar hotel user league and have to slum it at the Fratton Park B&B, They were happy to do this whilst dear old Harry was the hotelier for his charm and he was their mate, but once he left...and now Admin Andy has stopped the hot food aswell....we are doomed...we are Wimbledon..We are Millwall..no one likes us but we dont care....Actually loads of ordinary Fans do like us, and feel sorry for us and wish us well..the press could completely turn this story around to the Heroes of FP and their courageous battles against all odds...but that would not get their pies back on the menu..and they would have to slum it again at the Park...well F@(& em all

Who needs to eat? its a privilege to experience the atmosphere and "taste" real football. The AC Milan fans enjoyed it, savour it before its gone.
