top 4 to all win!

Think you can safely say the top 6 there VPA, can't see Reading throwing anything away at the moment.

How about Top 7 Lads - Surely.

Let's see.....we've not won this year, we've scored only a handful of times, our forwards can't even strike a match let alone a shot and it is pouring with rain - so I think we will be lucky to see us even get a point today, our lot don't like the rain and generally put in a poor performance in these conditions. But i'll be urging them on from the Fratton End (No way am I ever going to call it the West Stand!!!!), no matter what the score I'll be behind them all the way. A win is an absolute must now.

It's a great preview rug!
