Points Deduction: Pompey In Clear

The Everton and Wigan chairmen had reportable been the ones to report Portsmouth and West Ham to the Premier League. He told the Daily Mail;

'If anyone has broken the rules they should have points deducted.'

Vital Pompey can confirm that Portsmouth are in the clear. The player in question was Manuel Fernandes who signed on loan in the summer. Portsmouth however insist, that they only agreed to loan the player from Benfica.

Peter Storrie (chief executive who did the deal) spoke directly to the club and players agent. If Fernandes shouldn`t have been playing then Benfica would be the club in the wrong.

Peter said;

"It is total rubbish we are not involved, as we had a loan with Benfica only and no third party."

There has currently been no comment from West Ham regarding fielding an ineligible player.

SPURS NEED POINTS EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT SHARP ENOUGH TO BEAT BLADES.

You Spurs fans make me sick. You keep bleating on about how "big" you are yet despite all the money you assume you have, you still have a very inferior side. The only thing big about yo lot is your heads! Stop being fickle and get behind your players, you are an embarrassment!!

That's exactly the same argument any Spuds fan can say about the few fickle Pompey fans we have.

It seems Spurs can't quite cut it, being slashed by Blades. To be blunt, I don't see the point in Jol.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
