Fancied a win but its snow good

Fancied a win but its snow good

'Pompey would beat Scunthorpe', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts I agreed with as I felt that we would win what would have been a tough game, now if only we could have beaten the snow!

Confidence was high with more than ¾'s of the opinion that we would win today; unfortunately the only winner was the snow as this prevented a ball from being kicked at all.

Quite literally the only winner - despite the fact that this prevents injuries to anyone and gives those nursing knocks an extra week to recuperate and also gives us a little breathing space for Mikey Brown and Richard Hughes - was the weather as who, lets be honest, else is happy that no game has been played if you are a Pompey or Scunny fan?

I travelled, but would have regardless as I had family to see before Christmas, although I wanted a game too!

Financially this is a MASSIVE blow as we cannot afford to keep losing the revenue from games being called off, as not all who would have made this will make the rearrangement will they as it is 'probably' going to be a midweek date - so, that means a refund needed for some - like the Burnley one.

It seems like an age since we last had a home game, as this is now back-to-back Fratton postponements - my next one will not be until the New Year now and Hull, as no train on Boxing Day means no Millwall game for me, assuming that even goes ahead...

    sea-juicer, nip along to the Hamble and do mine; it's near a couple of cracking pubs.

    Went down with 2 friends for the Hospitality then wham someone phoned to say it was off when we were already on the Fratton bound train. Watched Sunderland in Wetherspoons and then we returned. I rang the club and they informed me it wasn't the pitch but the surrounds and that mean't the police and Safety stewards were involved in the decision. Still I will get a refund, but no Pompey game for me this time coming over from Australia.

    Evans - Right back or right midfield?

    Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
