Game on?!

Game on?!

Ahead of the league cup draw I suggested that being drawn against Charlton would possibly, if not probably, put the 'pay what you want' pre-season friendly at Fratton in doubt?

Fortunately we avoided them in that draw but one championship side we did not avoid was our south coast rivals Bournemouth!

I neglected to think the same scenario - not a pay what you want game, and a pre-season at Dean Court anyway - could fall that game if we were paired together.

Now that we will face the Cherries in the 1st round that pre-season game being scrapped could have been a possibility but Guy Whittingham is insistent the game, on Tuesday 23rd July will go ahead even though it is just 2-weeks before the cup meeting.

Lets just hope this remains the case and we when we face each other in the competitive game we can find it third time lucky, as we have bowed out in the 1st round of the league cup in the past two seasons...

Pompey 1-0 Bury - report & highlights

Well, that was a case of 'job done' on Saturday really, right? Far from our best, in a game that wasn't great, but Pompey did enough to edge out struggling Bury 1-0 at Fratton Park.

You always need scrappy wins

I am keen to be entertained when I go to football, which hopefully results in a Pompey win. However, at times you accept the points are the main thing - like Bury on Saturday.
