Pompey get Burnley away, that'll do!

Pompey have drawn Championship side Burnley away in the third round of the league cup.

This draw will please many fans, as a poll ran earlier in the week pointed heavily in favour of a Championship, or lower standard side preferred because it was believed that this would aid in our quest for progression in the tournament that many, myself included think we could win.

I am sure that the club are pleased with an away draw too, as my thinking is with the current ticketing problems at Fratton an away draw would have been favoured.

Burnley will not be a push over, but even with a 'second string side' we should be able to go to Turf Moor and get the done.

We just have to make sure we do not let Djimi Traore try any off the line back heelers, as last time he tried that for Liverpool it went horribly wrong and they got dumped out!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

sorry, i did notice that and meant to reply but forget in my rage... i have been a part of this site for some 12-18 months i think, but only took over as editor about 3 months ago, and tbh i think that the response - 79 comments i think - is the best ever, without doubt the best ever on an article in such a short time...

Away day Blues

We can be brilliant one game and then woeful the next...usually after we've won (usually pretty well) at home but then we lose away, as we did at Blackpool.

Vital View - League 2, 27th September

A lead at was extended by Plymouth with Blackpool recording a surprising win, talking of which Wycombe's five-one win against Crewe was certainly a 'surprising' win.

Match highlights - Blackpool 3-1 Pompey

The mystery that is Pompey and our dodgy away form continued with another defeat suffered at Blackpool, who hadn't won at home since the first game of the season before this 3-1 win.
