Premiership round-up (16-18/12/06)

Pompey came away from the Emirates Stadium with a points after our 2-2 draw with Arsenal in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others…

Saturday 16/12/06
Aston Villa 0-1 Bolton
Gary Speed's (75) penalty gave Bolton the three points in the evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus match.

Charlton 0-3 Liverpool
Charlton look a side destined for relegation. The early LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game saw Liverpool run out comfortable winners thanks to goals from Xabi Alonso (3 penalty), Craig Bellamy (82) and Steven Gerrard (88). Maybe Liverpool should have scored more.

Newcastle 2-1 Watford
Having struggled initially Obafemi Martins is now on fire; his first goal (49) gave Newcastle the lead before Omar Bouazza (57) pulled Watford level. Newcastle and Martins were not to be denied his second (85) won the game late on.

Reading 1-2 Blackburn
James Harper (41) put Reading ahead only for Benni McCarthy (64) to level for Blackburn, he had already had three goals ruled out for offside. For a fifth time Blackburn beat Marcus Hahnemann, but for only the second time legally through David Bentley (84) to secure all three points.

Wigan 0-1 Sheff Utd
A Rob Hulse (45) goal deep into first half injury time saw Pompey's next opponents Sheff Utd win for the third time in four games.

Sunday 17/12/06
Everton 2-3 Chelsea
After twice leading the early afternoon LIVE SKY Sports clash Everton finally succumbed to Chelsea. Mikael Arteta (38 penalty) put Everton ahead only for Michael Ballack's free kick to come back off the post then hit Tim Howard (49) to go in for an own goal. Joseph Yobo (64) restored Everton's lead before Frank Lampard (81) drew Chelsea level again. Didier Drogba (87) scored the winning goal.

Man City 1-2 Tottenham
Callum Davenport (16) and Tom Huddlestone (24) saw Spurs race into a 2-0 lead. Joey Barton (64) pulled one back in the second half but it wasn't enough.

West Ham 1-0 Man Utd
The SKY Sports cameras were at Upton Park to watch Alan Curbishley's first game in charge of West Ham LIVE and the hammer shocked United. Hammers captain and former Pompey target Nigel Reo-Coker (75) scored to claim three precious points for the hammers.

Monday 18/12/06
Fulham 2-1 Middlesbrough
The Monday Night LIVE SKY Sports game saw Fulham take a two goal lead through Heidar Helguson (12 penalty) and Brian McBride (35) before Boro reduced the arrears through Mark Viduka (74).

Let's keep it going. Time to blunt the blades, pop a bubble & stuff a trotter.

Blunting the Blades would be a great start to Christmas,although beating them will be much easier than stopping Neil "the referee's never give us anything" Warnock from moaning !!

The Warlocks were around when I last got in my time machine. However I firmly believe that we can teach these steely men a lesson in culinary tools....or to put it bluntly 'Fork 'em'. Sheffield was once a bastion of football power but they can no longer forge an iron defence anymore. Whether it be Wednesday or Saturday the Owls or the Blades, we will prove Pompey Power is the current force to be reckoned with.
