Premiership Preview (28-29/11/06)

Premiership Preview (28-29/11/06)

Pompey are on the road again as we face Liverpool at Anfield in our latest Barclays Premiership match hoping for a better showing than Sunday! What about the others…

Tuesday 28/11/06
Watford v Sheff Utd, 20:00
Hameur Bouazza (ankle) is a major doubt for Watford in this crucial encounter and is likely to join Ben Foster, Marlon King (both knee) and Clarke Carlisle (thigh) on the sidelines.

Danny Webber (hamstring) is likely to return but Sheff United do have injury worries, the names of which are not being revealed by Neil Warnock.

Wednesday 29/11/06
Aston Villa v Man City, 19:45
Thomas Sorensen (knee ligament) is out so Stuart Taylor plays in goal. Chris Sutton (calf) is out so Milan Baros may come in?

DaMarcus Beasley (ankle) is fit again so returns to the squad but City are set to name an unchanged side from that which suffered defeat at the weekend.

Bolton v Chelsea, 20:00
Nicky Hunt (hamstring) and Quinton Fortune (ankle) who came off injured in the victory over Arsenal are both doubtful

Salomon Kalou (medial ligament) misses out but Didier Drogba (ankle) and Michael Ballack (calf) should be OK to play.

Fulham v Arsenal, 19:45
Franck Queudrue (shin) and Carlos Bocanegra (hamstring) are injured whilst Ian Pearce is suspended following a red card at the weekend. Despite having a groin injury Philippe Christanval will step in

Robin van Persie (suspension) is back and Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) could also be back. Thierry Henry (neck) has to prove his fitness in order to return though, and this isn't looking good.

Man Utd v Everton, 20:00
Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Saha picked up injuries against Chelsea and are both doubtful. Ryan Giggs looks likely to play up front if Saha misses out, meaning John O'Shea and Darren Fletcher may come into midfield.

Andy Johnson (hamstring) is highly unlikely to make this game, Tim Howard (ineligible) definitely misses out as he can't play against United under the terms of his loan deal.

Pompey's recent woeful on the road performances are set to continue with a visit to Anfield. Unlikely to score and attempting to stop 3 for sure goals from the unbeaten reds on their own turf, Pompey will be a sorry bunch when they head back South in preparation for the next game against Villa. The crystall ball which never tells fibs has us in a 0-3 loss, thus denting the ever precious goal diff. With the prospects of European football slipping away Harry with look to the January sales to gain inspiration to re-ignite Pompey's season. On a positive note the word 'Relegation' will not be on Harry's Xmas cards this year.

Agree, anything less than 3-0 will be a good result. hard to be that positive after that lame performance away to a naff Newcastle. The form book will need some serious about turning for us to get something. Realistically we should be looking to get players fit & back to form for the games which are more winnable.

Pompeygray i think for tonight the force is with you.I have just been texted the team and some thoughts popped in to my thick head, why is Hughes playing ? Why is Fernandes never playing ? What happened to Cole? Why play Benjani on his own? Why have i put a tenner on us to get a point??????

i think harry doesn't think he can rely on fernandes yet, cole has an achilles problem and hughes is a tried and trusted soldier

Pompeygray wishes to apologise for the mistakes made by the crystal ball. I will now endeavour to get a replacement. in spite of it predicting a goal drought for Pompey we did keep out the scousers thanks to our resident DJ.

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.
