Bring on the Liverpool

With Pompey beating Fulham 1-0 earlier in the day thanks to Benjani's goal, we could sit back, relax and wait as Liverpool and South China battled it out for a place against us in the Barclays Asia Trophy final on Friday.

As expected Liverpool won comfortable 3-1, including some cracking goals from John Arne Riise and Daniel Agger to become our final opponents.

It may not be a major piece of silverware, or even a piece of silverware that will mean much to many but Pompey does not win much so victory on Friday would do me nicely.

Winning this tournament would not only bring us back to England on even more of a high ahead of the coming season, but will raise our profile even more in Asia. Liverpool are treated like Kings out there, so to dethrone them would see our stock rise.

yep they looked to be taking it all a bit seriously the old scousers, hopefully we will have aclimatised a bit by friday and will put in a better performance, i didnt notice the first time i saw the game how *****ed off Sol was to be sub'd, always a good sign i think. I suppose Harry is playing politics by sticking Dej on.

yep, the scousers seem to be really up for this tournament but then so are a lot of pompey players from the noises they are making... sol was mighty *****ed off when he was hauled off wasn't he. like you say tho russ this is a very good sign, something that is good to see so long as shirts are not seen thrown away in anger or the player stroms down the tunnel in a huff a la robert or that egyptian fella at spurs last season...

I am told that Sol thought it a risky to make a change in the middle of a corner. I agree with you Rug, no shirt throwing but i think he made his point

Yeh it would be nice..i used to be happy if we done well in the Hampshire cup. What was good to see for me was that there were some locals in Pompey shirts..glad to see that not everyone thinks that there are only 4 english clubs. I agree beating L'pool will increase our profile

it is something you are always told tho isnt it, you dont make a change at a set peice like a corner - this allows the concentration to slip momentarily doesnt it, and that can be all you need... our profile is rising all the time, victory tomorrow will help it even more!
