What made you support West Ham mate?
It runs in the family. At first I chose to support Wimbledon until I was maybe nine or ten, but then I was given the 1988 AVCO shirt for Christmas and the rest is history!
Are you happy with how your season is going so far?
I suppose we could do better, but to be fair there are a lot of good teams in the top flight this season. So much money has been spent by the other teams close to us in the league, it's going to be a dogfight to finish high in the table. We've been terribly unlucky with injuries so far as well, five or six of our best players being injured at one time is going to take its toll on results.
Curbishley had a difficult time for a while last season, but he kept you up - how do you think he is doing?
He's got my support... for now. As you saw with Pardew going, it looks as if Eggy has a short fuse. It keeps him on his toes to get results but at the same time it's a bad thing - we want him to feel secure in his job
How do you rate his signings so far? Although he has been unlucky with many of them getting injured!
In a sentence, injury prone. I mean, with all respect to the man, who signs Kieron Dyer!?! A lot of the players we signed recently are often injured and it's no great shock to me that they're sidelined now.
Will he need more in January - and will he get them?
We need more strikers, that's for sure. Henri Camara and Carlton Cole leading the line doesn't sound too promising with our best out injured! We need recognised, reliable players who are willing to pull up their sleeves and get on with what they're paid so much for.
Who is the West Ham danger man that Pompey should watch?
At the moment, Craig Bellamy is doing well. It's a good time to play us at present, with Ashton, Ljungberg, Dyer, Parker and Faubert all out. Recent signing Solano did well on Sunday, Rob Green is doing his England hopes no harm the way he's been playing recently.
How do you reckon West Ham will go this season?
Mid table security. As I'm sure you Pompey fans can sympathise with, the season after you stay up you want to conquer the world but in reality we'll finish 11th or 12th.
What about Pompey?
I can see you doing well this season. A dynamic, efficient squad can only lead to bright things, and Uncle 'Arry is a good manager. I'd say 8th or 9th.
If you could take any Pompey player from our squad and put him in yours, who would it be and why?
Benjani's doing well at the moment, wouldn't mind Papa Bouba Diop.
Go on - who is going to win, Pompey or West Ham?
Going to have to say West Ham!
