Break at the right time? Nope!

Break at the right time? Nope!

'The timing of the international break for Pompey is not a good one', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts I am not sure if I entirely agree with...

Of course we are in-form at the moment, unbeaten in 3 - having won 2 of these games, the 3rd would actually feel like a win too - and are looking good when we play, so in many ways you just want to keep playing.

So, with that in mind the international break is a pain, then again is it ever a good thing?!

We have Liam Lawrence away on international duty and will not want him picking up any injury although on the flip side we do not see many go away these days so any players that have been carrying any niggling injuries recently would have been given a couple of weeks to sort this out, which is not a bad thing.

Confidence is high so if anything we would have had 2-weeks to reflect on this even more and see this grow and that 'should' see us come out even more determined to extend this run at Fratton against Watford next weekend...

    Its not a good time when we've just started doing so much better, but I guess SC can use it for a bit more "pre-season training", at least for the players who aren't away. We don't lose so many but we do lose some key players like Lawrence and Moko.

    Must admit that I personally think when you are on a run, in the groove or any kind of prolific patch the 'Psyche' seems to suggest that it's best to keep on carrying on brother. So we'll just have to hope that our little bit of form picks up where it left off.

    No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

    Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

    On this day in history...27th May

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

    Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

    Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

    It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

    Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
