Rocha returns!

Rocha returns!

The mooted return to Fratton of Rocha John Rocha has come off.

His return has officially been confirmed on The Pompey Site, with him saying: 'I'm delighted to be back at Pompey and to have the chance to help out Guy and this great club.

'I can't wait to get out on the pitch again and play in front of the fantastic supporters at Fratton Park.'

I would imagine, even though it is an initial one-month deal, the 33-year-old is back for the remainder of the season.

Perhaps he is not as mobile as he once was and perhaps he does not have the pace but when you have the ability to read the game as he does that can make a huge difference. He is also very calm and composed on the ball, which will also help us.

With Watford recalling Carl Dickinson, who was suspended for what would have been his final game tomorrow anyway - it 'seems' they have done us a favour by ending this loan early - that left a space open in the squad so RJR is eligible to play tomorrow.

Well, assuming the FA give him clearance...

I am more than happy to have him back, and I do not think he should have been released anyway.

The fact that he has returned now must mean that it was not entirely a financially based decision to release him in the summer?

The defender we have miss just one thing - organisation. Ricardo will give them that and maybe we can cut out the stupid goals we give away every game. Who will ever forget his performance at Wembley when the Spuds were buried? Was taling to a 10 year old at the week-end who was at Wembley that day and he is so excited ar RRs return. He is also going to be a shareholder thanks to his father.

Fratton team sheets - Pompey v Bristol Rovers

Pompey are at Fratton with Bristol Rovers the visitors for our league two match. This is a 3pm kick-off, as was intended by the football gods when the beautiful game was invented!

On this day in history...13th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 13th February.

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?
