Prem round-up (31/03-02/04/07)

Pompey were robbed of three points in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Fulham at Craven Cottage following their late, late equaliser. What about the others?

Saturday, 31/0307
Bolton 1-0 Sheff Utd
Bolton's European push continued. UEFA Cup football is looking an almost certainty now after Kevin Davies (80) scored a late winner. Bolton will be looking for a Champions League spot now though.

Charlton 1-0 Wigan
Charlton's revival continued with another priceless victory to move the, to within one point of safety thanks to a late Darren Bent (86) penalty to pull Wigan back into trouble.

Liverpool 4-1 Arsenal
The weekends first LIVE SKY Sports match saw Liverpool hand out a comprehensive beating to Arsenal. Former Pompey striker Peter Crouch (4 & 35) had Liverpool 2-0 up at half time. Daniel Agger (60) virtually secured victory before William Gallas (73) gave Arsenal a glimmer of hope. This hope was quashed when Crouch (81) completed his hat trick.

Man Utd 4-1 Blackburn
For a long period it looked as though perhaps Matt Derbyshire's (29) goal could shock United, but Pompey's next opponent put in a master class to eventually run out comfortable winners through Paul Scholes (61), Michael Carrick (73), Ji Sung Park (83) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (90) in injury time.

Newcastle 0-1 Man City
For a second successive Premiership match Emile Mpenza (80) found the net for City to all but eliminated any lingering relegation fears but maybe re-ignite some for Newcastle.

Watford 0-1 Chelsea
In the evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus offering in typical fashion Chelsea stole three points to maintain their Premiership hopes. Salomon Kalou (90) struck deep into injury time to keep the title race alive.

West Ham 2-0 Middlesbrough
West Ham made it two Premiership wins on the spin to help their survival chances. Also for the second Premiership match running Bobby Zamora (2) and Carlos Tevez (45) were the goalscorers for West Ham.

Sunday, 01/04/07
Tottenham 1-0 Reading
A debatable first half Robbie Keane (41) penalty proved the difference between two sides battling with Pompey, among others, for a UEFA Cup spot next season.

Monday, 02/04/07
Aston Villa 1-1 Everton
The LIVE Monday night SKY Sports football saw Everton take an early lead through Joleon Lescott (15) only to be denied what would have been a crucial victory and pull them further away from Pompey by Gabriel Agbonlahor's (83) late equaliser.

David James makes 3 or 4 great saves, how could we have been robbed. The answer is we just don't know the secret of how to win at the moment. Sorry lads but it is just going to continue a bit longer as we will be cannon fodder for the big gun this week-end. Happy Easter but I think I know who the bunnies are going to be.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
