We all want to be entertained and anyone that tells you that they were not entertained on Saturday is a liar, this is what the business we call football is all about and as he told the Pompey Site this is something that Harry Redknapp is encouraging more of: 'I think people want to see teams play football. I was delighted with our performance, we scored seven goals and could have scored an awful lot more.
'If you've got good players you need to let them play. I watched Barcelona play the other day and they had a forward line of Messi, Henry, Ronaldinho and Deco.
'I don't know where they were playing - I don't think they knew - but they ripped Lyon apart. It was fantastic to watch'.
Clearly we will not be seeing that amount of goals scored every week in a match involving Pompey, the chances are we will never again see that amount of goals ever again, but the signs are encouraging that we could see some highly entertaining football in the months ahead.
We have a squad of players that are all highly talented and the players on the field at the weekend were full so full of confidence you could literally see it oozing out of them.
Yep it is nice to keep clean sheets, but I would forgo these for great entertainment more often than not and would also not mind us conceding goals, as if we play to our true potential we can and will score even more, the future - and not just because of Saturday's match - is so promising for this fantastic football club, I am looking forward to every minute.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
