I am now settling back to life back in England, following a break in Paris.
Of course this does not 'cut you off' from the world, but I spent little time on my phone or t'internet, this was a break (you cannot call Paris a 'relaxing break') with my wife.
Now back up to speed with the Pompey goings on over the past week or so I now know that we will be playing on Good Friday this season.
Saturday at 3pm is ALWAYS the preferred time for football, that is the traditional day and time for footie but the Easter games are also traditionally on Good Friday and Easter Monday so you cannot be too unhappy with that really can you?
Both Pompey and Carlisle agreed that Good Friday at Fratton, with a 3pm kick-off, was better taking into account that both sides have a game on Easter Monday - we are at Fratton again to face Plymouth - so the change was made.
I seem to recall last season that we played our first Easter game; I think it could have been Bristol Rovers, on the Saturday with some questioning why our game and maybe just one other in league two was played on the Saturday?
Well there will be no questioning this season.
My only issue with Good Friday, purely a personal issue due to my circumstances, means I will be away from home for longer - travelling back and forth from Devon twice is unlikely, so I suspect I will stay in Pompey until Tuesday, which means being away from home for longer than I would have liked by hey ho as the saying goes...
From a footballing point of view and the extended break we get Friday is better probably.
Were you happy with this being played on Saturday 4th April or is Good Friday, 3rd April, more preferable for you?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
