Todorov Has Earned A Start, Surely!

Todorov Has Earned A Start, Surely!

Svetoslav Todorov started the season with Pompey by doing something that we struggled to do for most the time after he was shipped off on loan to Wigan, especially since the turn of the year - SCORING GOALS! You cannot say he would have kept scoring as maybe he wouldn't but the poacher and Todorov is just that a poacher, couldn't have done any worse than those left behind.

Thankfully Todorov returned in January and although the chances of seeing him pull on a Pompey shirt again (other than in the reserves) were slim, after the mercenary that is Andrew Cole left to join Birmingham on loan - the man brought in to replace Todorov, the emotional, if not sentimental site of Todorov not only pulling on a Pompey shirt but taking the field was once again witnessed against Fulham on Saturday.

I am not opposed to Kanu, if he stay and the price and terms are right for Pompey so be it, if he goes if this is best for Pompey, again so be it, but in his ten minutes on the field Todorov showed more than Kanu had in the previous 80! Todorov wanted to play for the shirt, the fans and the club, not that I am suggesting Kanu didn't or doesn't, that's for others to decide. If only Todorov could have crowned his glorious return with a goal. Had it not been for scummer Niemi in the Fulham goal, who was almost as good as James, he would have.

After this ten minute cameo Todorov must have earned a start against United next weekend, if not United surely Watford the Monday after?

Just a quick note on Niko Kranjcar also, what a cracking goal, something out of almost nothing springs to mind. In his recent performances he has shown more than a glimpse or two as to why it is so important that he is kept and not discarded too soon. Without a run of games he couldn't be judged, with this he can.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Kranjcar's goal was something else wasn't it merlin... I really do hope that Toddy can get a chance and is worth a start against United next week, what do we have to lose...

My dad used to live down pompey way, (near the front where the hovercraft thing is) went to a few of your games with him, decided to buy a shirt so i fitted in more (with a scouse accent could probably pick me out of a 100) got him on the back of it then he went and got injured :(

Get Toddy back in the team!! What he did in just 10 mins shows his determination. He has hunger and fire in his belly!!!!

surely a hungry striker with a point to prove is more worthy than one who thinks he has already made his point, Kanu has been great this season, but since xmas has tailed off and obviously thinks he is worthy of greater things

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
