Harry: Reading Will Stay Up

Harry: Reading Will Stay Up

Harry Redknapp has spoken about Reading`s future in the Premiership and Portsmouth resent "slump."

'I said from day one that Reading would stay up, They are solid, they have terrific strength and a great team-ethic.

'Even with practically a reserve team they ran Liverpool close at Anfield in the Carling Cup the other night and they have a fine manager in Steve Coppell.'

Harry is satisfied with Pompey`s season thus far despite three defeats from four;

'Fifth or sixth spot is still open for the season. Most clubs in the division are capable of putting a winning run together at any time - just as everybody is also capable of having a losing run.

'The top three will always come from four clubs - Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool - even though Liverpool are struggling to get there at the moment.

'We are not in that category but if we win our next three home matches (against Reading, Fulham and Watford) we will be delighted with that and it will put us in a good position.

'Manchester United away is in the middle of all those games and if you get a point there it is a bonus but I've got every faith in the squad.'

Reading stay up! Only because Watford, Charlton and Sheff United are so poor!

Hah, notice Redknapp didn't mention Arsenal's crappy start compared to Liverpool's overall struggle.

I hope it's not a resent slump or it could be coming back to us. More recently I would say - but hopefully gone forever.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
