13 out of 18 pts is the Pompey aim

13 out of 18 pts is the Pompey aim

Pompey will win 13 points from the next 18 points on offer! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeycarpet's poll are thoughts that I completely share, well nearly - I think we might get even more...

With games coming up against Man City (h), Birmingham (a), Everton (h), Villa (a), Spurs (h) and Liverpool (a) - all before Christmas - it is looking good for the 13 points minimum that we are expecting, which equates to 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat - fair enough eh?

To be honest, not that I am expecting it or taking it for granted or a given, I could see us going through all 6 unbeaten but on paper the Liverpool away game would be the one that most 'could' see as the one to lose? But you never know.

What the poll asked - How many points will Pompey get in there next 6 games?

How you voted - win most of them (13pts) 51%, do quite well (8pts) 34%, win them all! (18pts) 9%, do badly (3 pts) 3%, disaster (0pts) 3%

Current Poll - The current famous 5 midfield of Niko Kranjcar, Sulley Muntari, Sean Davis, Papa Bouba Diop and John Utaka have earned a lot of praise this season - and rightly so.

This midfield quintet have been one of the key areas behind our season as it has been, but which of then is most 'vital' - nice pun, this is want PompeyGleamer wants to know with this - 'who's the most "vital" to the success of our team?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

13 pts is a big ask. Happily take it but this is a tough set of games. I expect Man City, Aston Villa & Everton to be in top top 6-10 sides. Liverpool away will obviously be tough. My fear is that this poor Spurs team will vastly improve in the 5 weeks under their new management. Brum away I expect to win. 4 wins, 1 draw & 1 defeat is a huge ask. 8pts is realistic, 10pts will be excellent, anymore & it's start looking for your passport time.

im always optimistic - maybe overly - but if we get anything less than 10 pts i will be surprised... tbh as i have said i still think we could go through til christmas on our current unbeaten run so could get at least 13 - lucky for us!

i would be delighted with that, it depends on injurys and suspensions aswell, sulley is on 4 i think, and so he is inevitable going to be miss on of those games.

I agree gleamer that would be a great result 13 points, and by Harrys reckoning 5 points from safety, we could really push on then couldnt we.

offer me 13 points now, andill bite your hand off!!! 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss is a very big ask, considering the oposition that we are playing - although if we can win all our home games, and get good results in our away games, then it shouldnt be too bad. that said, i still doubt we will make it - birmingham look the only team even half likely to drop points, and considering our record against struggling teams, even that will be a test.

you never know. i think that we can win all our home games, the trip to liverpool really depends on raffas tactics to be fair, cant wait to see torres! and then birmingham, who arent a great team, but are at home,

remember watford last season? need i say more. all the games will be tough tests - and i have a feeling that if we can keep up our momentum, we will glide through. if not, then we will collapse. simple as that.

sorry carpet, i disagree, why would we collapse? we had a poor game agasint west ham, then a defeat agasint blackburn, where we had a strong side and played rubbish, then go to st james park and played like gods. and ironically more so in the second half

Every season has its highs and lows. The draw at home to Morecambe was a body blow for Pompey, but little did we know that the next home game against Crewe was to be our turning point.
