Andy Cole has told Pompey fans that he doesn`t believe Portsmouth will be in a relegation fight this year and has also praised his team mate Kanu.
"You may lose half-a-yard of pace with age, but you gain half-a-yard in your head. I still feel I can score goals at the highest level. The thought that I can't has never really entered my mind."
"Just because you're older, it doesn't mean you can't score goals. If I get myself in the right position, I like to think I can score. I was trying to get half a yard on a defender."
'I did that, and it went in. It's a great feeling scoring goals - especially after you've been out a while. It doesn't change for me. I just love scoring goals. I've enjoyed every single one of my goals - and I want to keep scoring more.'
'I'm 35, but I still feel 21 when I score. I don't feel under pressure. I'm trying to enjoy it and get as many goals as I can. I'm here to take the club forward.'
'The first job is to get 40 points. Then we'll go from there. If we keep doing the things we're doing we won't get in a relegation fight. We're getting the points on the board early doors.'
'I can't believe how good Kanu is. Some of the things he can do are phenomenal. He's got six goals already, and I'm sure he'll get more.'
'It's the manager's decision whether I start games. I have no right just to come in.'
Andy Cole will go into the squad to face Chelsea hoping to pick up where he left against West Ham.
