Great highlights package for an incredible win - 7 goals none conceeded and we're ahead of Chelski ! Who's needs millions when we've got Pompey free transfers ! Harry's incredible at getting the best from players - shows what a bit of confidence boosting and motivation can do, combined with a keen eye for a top player ! Let's enjoy it while it lasts !

Another Fratton disappointment

That 2nd half on Saturday against Notts County was woeful - absolutely awful wasn't it. The first 15-minutes or so of it was like a pre-season friendly to pre-season!

Match highlights - Pompey 1-2 Notts County

What a disappointment that was! The 1st half wasn't bad, in fact large chunks of it were good but the 2nd half was just woeful with a soft centred Pompey beaten 2-1 by Notts County.
