Come on Dave, you can do it!

David Nugent was handed another league cup start by Harry Redknapp last night and he duly answered the call with his 2nd goal in as many league cup ties, to move him within one goal of top scorer Kanu - not bad for a player 'that is struggling' is it!

Games and most importantly goals breed confidence, so after this with the run of games that we have coming up it would appear and ideal time to give him just that, a run of games.

Kanu - like it or not - is a near certain starter, so it is a case of who, if anyone, starts alongside him. Benjani seems to be struggling with an injury so with John Utaka much more affective on the right side of midfield the door appears to be ajar for Nugent.

Redknapp says that he needs to take his chances when the come, as said we appear to be heading into a near perfect opportunity for this, so provided he is given this run I have this feeling we could be about to see the real David Nugent stand up, and when he does any doubters will be well and truly silenced just like the boo boys at Burnley were on Tuesday night!

he needs conficence, and he isnt getting that sitting on the bench. he has got two goals in his two cup starts (has he started an league games? cant remember) - so given the chance, he is getting in the right positions, so more goals will come!

oh, and just read " http://www.metro.co.uk/sport/football/article.html?in_article_id=67673&in_page_id=43&ito=newsnow " - we are third? this cant be right? must be some kind of bias because we dont have a big enough stadium?!?!?!?!

cheeky ********s, they say pompey is 'bizarrely third'... clearly the idiot that wrote that article does not spend much time paying attention to football - as if they did there would be no 'bizarrely' about it and the fact that the atmosphere at fortress fratton is so good!

he started the opening couple of games didnt he, but other than that it has been from the bench if at all... i really hope that 'arry gives him a runout in the next 2 or 3 games as they have goals from pompey strikers written all over them...

I was guessing that when he said "bizzarly third" he mant we should be first :P...although it is more likely that he thought we should be...elsewhere... We know we are the best fans in te country, Liverpool fans know it (particualy when we outsing them at anfield) and everyone else does. We dont need a survey to prove it!

I agree give him a go! I think against Reading he could have some real joy. Reading looked really vulnerable to the quick break.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
