Premiership round-up (14-15/04/07)

Pompey won 2-1 in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Newcastle at Fratton, what about the others - including the cup semis.

Saturday, 14/04/07
Arsenal 2-1 Bolton
Bolton threatened Arsenal with a second successive home defeat after Nicolas Anelka (11) put then ahead but Tomas Rosicky (31) equalised before the break with Cesc Fabregas (45) scoring the winner just after it.

Man City 0-0 Liverpool
City again failed to score at home but Liverpool failed to break them down also so the game ended 0-0.

Middlesbrough 1-3 Aston Villa
Fabio Rochemback (13) put Boro ahead after his free kick squirmed its way through Thomas Sorensen. Craig Gardner (45) brought our next opponent Villa level before two quick goals from Luke Moore (70), Stilian Petrov (77) secured another victory.

Reading 1-0 Fulham
Stephen Hunt (15) scored the only goal as Fulham's relegation fears were worsened after defeat in Lawrie Sanchez's first game in charge.

Sheff Utd 3-0 West Ham
A relegation six pointer saw Sheff Utd come out victorious thanks to Michael Tonge (39), Phil Jagielka (68) and a fine solo goal from Jonathan Stead (78). West Ham are all but down now.

Watford 4-1 Man Utd
Wayne Rooney (7) gave United an early lead in the LIVE BBC match, before the man who ran Pompey ragged last week, Hameur Bouazza (26) equalised. Cristiano Ronaldo (28) soon resorted the lead before further goals from Rooney (66) again and Kieran Richardson (82) booked a place in the final.

Sunday, 15/04/07
Everton 2-1 Charlton
Joleon Lescott (81) looked like he had won the game for Everton but Darren Bent (89) scored a dramatic late equaliser. James McFadden (90) scored an even more dramatic injury time winner.

Wigan 3-3 Tottenham
Sunday afternoon's first LIVE SKY Sports offering saw a cracker. Emile Heskey (2) had Wigan ahead, Dimitar Berbatov (4) soon levelled. Leighton Baines (30) again had Wigan ahead but Spurs swiftly responded through Robbie Keane (35) from the spot. For a third time Wigan went ahead through Kilbane (60) but once again Spurs equalised quickly through Keane's (68) second.

Blackburn 1-2 Chelsea
Frank Lampard (16) gave Chelsea an early lead in the second LIVE SKY Sports offering on Sunday. A spirited fight back saw Blackburn level through former Pompey loanee Jason Roberts (64) but Chelsea won it in extra-time through Michael Ballack's (109) effort.

With our run in I can't see us catching Everton or Bolton but I do think that Tottenham's matches aren't particularly easy either. I think the match at Everton could be crucial. Personally a top ten finish is almost beyond anything I expected this season.

I feel we can achieve 7th heaven, but poorly dropped points in the past have cost us dear if we had any aspirations of a 6th place. But that's Pompey and we wouldn't want it any other way, they take us to the highest of highs and sometimes the lowest of lows (who can ever forget how it felt that first season in the Prem when we lost both matches to the Scum just before Christmas??).

I love this club!!!

TruepompeyBlue i agree with the dropped points issue and regards pompey being po0mpey6 I just soooo totally agree NOT!!! yes i bloody well would have it another way, i would have it that if we'd lost games it wouldnt be in a lazy unproffesional manner, and i would have it that we dont lose to teams teams that have not beaten anyone else for 10 games. I want us to be winners, or if we have to lose, put some effort in & who remembers the feeling when we beat a scum team managed by HR or if we have to lose how proud we were of each other after the Arsenal thrashing. in the words of king mate Love AND PRIDE

If you look at the run in, Reading have the easier programme. Sadly we dropped to many points against the relegation threatened sides otherwise... Hey what a great season it has been. I've been going for over 30 years & have rarely missed a home game in the last 22, this by far has been our best. So let's not knock it.

Spot on storagematt, I've been going for over 20 years and missed only a handful of home and away matches during that time and I can honestly say that without a shadow of a doubt, this season has been by far and away the best ever.
