'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Premiership round-up (17-18/02/07)

Pompey earned a very valuable and much needed point in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Reading at the Madejski, what about the others.

Saturday, 17/03/07
Blackburn 1-2 West Ham
In the evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game struggling West Ham were a goal down through Chris Samba (47) before Carlos Tevez (71) converted a dubious penalty to bring West Ham level. Bobby Zamora's (75) effort was then ruled to have crossed the line when it clearly hadn't to give West Ham a priceless victory. David Bentley (90) was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Chelsea 3-0 Sheff Utd
Andrei Shevchenko (4) opened the scoring early on for Chelsea, with Salomon Kalou (17) adding a second shortly after. Michael Ballack (58) scored Chelsea's third and final while Sheff Utd had Rob Hulse carried off with a broken ankle.

Man Utd 4-1 Bolton
Man Utd ran rampant in the lunchtime LIVE SKY Sport Prem Plus fixture to maintain their grip at the top of the Premiership. Goals from Ji-Sung Park (14 & 25) and Wayne Rooney (17) had Utd cruising by half time. Wayne Rooney (74) added his second and Utd's fourth before a late Gary Speed (87) penalty.

Middlesbrough 0-2 Man City
Some of the pressure piled on Stuart Pearce was released as Sylvain Distin (61) and Emile Mpenza (74) scored second half goals to ease City's relegation fears.

Tottenham 3-1 Watford
Jermaine Jenas (41) had Spurs in control before Paul Robinson (63) astonishingly scored from a free kick just outside of his own area. The long clearance was missed by everyone to leave Ben Foster embarrassed in the Watford goal. Hossam Ghaly (85) secured victory before a consolation for Watford through Darius Henderson (89).

Wigan 0-0 Fulham
A dour game saw barely a shot on target as the points were shared.

Sunday, 18/03/07
Aston Villa 0-0 Liverpool
The first of a double header of LIVE SKY Sports football saw Villa and Liverpool play out a 0-0 draw.

Charlton 2-0 Newcastle
With Charlton desperate for points the Valley faithful were rewarded as Chinese Captain Zheng Zhi (53) scored his first goal for the club. A former reported Pompey target Jerome Thomas (88) secured the points with a late penalty.

Everton 1-0 Arsenal
The second part of the LIVE SKY Sports double header almost failed to produce a goal also. Andrew Johnson (90) stole victory for Everton at the death.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Wasn't a bad weekend for Pompey was it really, those we would have expected to win in and around us did on the whole ... With the exception of Everton results went much as I would have thought...

Well at least we are now on 42pts. Whilst West Ham went down on that tally and Villa finished 16th last year, we are definitely safe. I just hope that we do our best season in the Prem. given that that is 13th place on 45 pts. We should do it easily shouldn't we ???

Relegation hasn't been on my mind since last season pompeygray... Didn't expect us to do quite as well as we have but never thought we'd be in danger, and even with the run we had, or are having I've never contemplated being sucked into a dogfight... You would hope we can have our best ever Prem finish wouldn't you... Despite most thinking the European dream is over I've still not given up...
