Pompey drew 0-0 with Manchester City in our first away Barclays Premiership match this season, what about the others...

Tuesday 22/08/06

The White Hart Lane crowd saw £10m man Dimitar Berbatov (7) score his first Premiership goal, with Jermaine Jenas (16) adding a second soon after as Spurs beat Sheffield United.

Watford 1-1 West Ham
Marlon King (62) gave Watford the lead at Vicaridge Road, only for Bobby Zamora (64) with his third in two games to equalize minutes later as the points were shared.

Wednesday 23/08/06
Aston Villa 2-1 Reading
Kevin Doyle (3) gave Reading a dream start, but following Ibrahima Sonko's red card for a foul on Luke Moore. Juan Pablo Angel (33) scored the resulting penalty. Gary Barry (60) scored the winning goal.

Blackburn 1-1 Everton
Benni McCarthy (49) opened the scoring only for Tim Cahill (83) to score to maintain Everton`s unbeaten start to the season.

Charlton 0-3 Man Utd
Second half goals from Darren Fletcher (48), Louis Saha (79) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (89) gave free scoring United another win in the LIVE SKY Sports clash at the Valley.

Fulham 1-1 Bolton
A penalty a piece saw the points shared at Craven Cottage. El Hadji Diouf's (72) penalty gave Bolton the load, but an injury time penalty from Jimmy Bullard (90) earned Fulham a point.

Middlesbrough 2-1 Chelsea

There have been a few unexpected results already haven't there, boro's won tonight, after Liverpool's only drawing with Sheff Utd, and Reaing beating boro at the weekend. Let's end the season now we'll settle for runners up behind United, it'll be no disgrace...

Yes the start has been unexpected for a lot of teams but I am sure things will get into order in a month or so.....I am surprised to see Man U winning both and by alot of goals though, perhaps the pundits are wrong this season and Man U are going to do Chelski who lost last night against Boro.

Chelski are obviously settling into the 4-4-2 setup and are dropping points - great for the rest of us. Isn't it amazing - Pompey are ahead of Chelsea in the league ! Who would have thought that ???

Late goals enabled us to climb to 2nd (or rather stay there considering Chelsea were only ahead on alphabet). Thanks to Fulham and Middlesborough we could have been slightly lower. Now a draw at the Riverside followed by 2 home wins and we will be well set for some 2006/07 excitement. I only hope that we still continue to persue a decent striker though, before 31/8. We musn't assume that our current crop will maintain 'The Business'.
