MOTM v Colchester

MOTM v Colchester

The votes had been cast; these numbers toted up with it decided among the Vital Pompey fraternity that Liam Walker was the man of the match against Colchester.

It was yet another quality game involving Pompey, with Colchester manager John Ward saying it was a 'good advert' for league one football - I would agree!

Rose tints perhaps - but I would like to think not - but some of out football at times was exceptional. The quick one-touch passing and move game we played, especially in the 2nd half, was brilliant and the best I have seen from Pompey in a long time.

We are getting fitter and stronger with a team cohesion also growing. 'If' this side can be kept together and we keep growing we will have a good season and cause many a side a problem or two.

All-in-all I think Walker probably was just about the standout player.

It was when he moved into a central role that he really shone though, he was good before but that just gave him a greater influence over the game. His through-ball for the Rodgers goal was cracking though with him pulling off at least one more similar, and coming close with others.

Others were perhaps a little unfortunate not to get more of the vote though, but hey ho...

Have we managed to pluck a diamond from out of nowhere here...well lets hope so!

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.
