Pompey no.9 still up from grabs

Pompey no.9 still up from grabs

The squad numbers for this season have been announced with the new boys claiming their numbers, with some of the old guard reshuffling.

Sylvain Distin gets no.15, Hermann Hreidarsson no.7, Sulley Muntari no.11, Martin Cranie no.20, Arnold Mvuemba no.18, David Nugent no.10 and John Utaka no.17.

With Nugent taking no.10 for this season, having warn this last season Lauren switches to no.4.

It could be thought that with the no.5 being vacated by Andy O'Brien, who now takes no.33, that maybe another defender might arrive, but this is unlikely.

However the much coveted no.9, warn previously by Svetoslav Todorov remains unclaimed, so my thinking is we are still quite likely see another striker arrive - and I do not mean simply Kanu re arriving.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

i predict 5 this year, and i am even going to stick my neck out and say it will Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs ahead of us. I dont think Arsenal will gel that quickly, and finish in 6th. Now i'm off to hide behide a wall, before i get bricked and stoned for being dence lol

Spurs always flatter to deceive Midge, they'll end up underachieving as is the norm. Anywhere from 5-11 for us I reckon.....I really think this depends how well we go in our tough opening fixtures.

im going for the top 6, whereabouts in this top 6 will most likely depend on how we start like Tantona says... 1st, 2nd and 3rd are prob safe, with arsenal and spurs expected to battle out 4th and 5th, so that leaves us 6th... altho if we perform away as well as at home and get in this final striker in that will take the no.9 shirt - as i think we will - then if we do start well altho people may think im crazy then i will not role out 4th, not that i am expecting this by anymeans... minimum we need to do this season is at least equal last season, but tbh i think we we go better learning lessons from last year...

OK so thought i was gonna get stoned by 5th, but pompeyrug has gone even better with a possible 4th. I love seeing people being optomistic, its so much better than the normal pesimists lol. So i think i'll see your 4th, and raise you by 1. to 3rd... yes we are gonna finish 3rd, any advances? lol

i like to live live danerously but i think i will have to fold at your call of 3rd Midge :) last season i was not even thinking about relegation, this season im not even thinking about anything lower than the top half of the table... god, i still have to pinch myself sometimes to believe things are real and the club actually is where they are and are still moving forward! those very dark days in the past are not forgotten and never will be, but they seem a million miles away now...
