My late mother's birthday and I was at five of those games including the two five goal defeats by Brum. We could have got something from both games at fratton Harry Harris hit the bar with the final kick and at St Andrews we were 3-0 down in twenty minutes with Geoff Vowden on fire but it should have been 3-3 at half time with any luck (it was 3-2), two late goals sealed our fate.

Winning thw next three games made up it though.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!

Sheffield United loanee open to Pompey return

McNulty would welcome a permanent transfer to Pompey. Although the Sheffield United striker could well be part of new manager Wilder's plans, so the chances seem 50:50 at best?
