Unfortunately finally it happened...

Unfortunately finally it happened...

Finally my little nephew Reece suffered the first league defeat of his Pompey following career - after not knowing this in his first 11 games - when we lost to Spurs at the weekend, but it was not a bad start to life as a Pompey fan was it?

He was born on September 7th 2007, a few days after we were spanked by Arsenal and other than the league cup defeat to Blackburn, a game in which we were also horrendous he had not known - not that he would know much to be honest! - the taste of defeat in the league until Spurs beat us 1-0, in yet another game that we were poor.

I am gutted that we could not have made it through until his first Christmas unbeaten - but even after this we have some mighty tough games coming up anyway - and that he could not quite get his first ton under his belt, my thinking is he was 98 or 99 days unbeaten - in the league - in his lifetime, so he still had a good innings really didn't he.

Clearly we never want to lose, I get worse with defeats with age but in many ways I reckon that this defeat could be a very good thing as it will hopefully give a few of the players a kick up the backside that they need to perform at home again, not to mention finally open Harry Redknapp's eyes to a change in playing style at home, hopefully!

Well 'little spoon' as Reece is affectionately known - there is that actress called Reece Witherspoon isn't there, so we call him Reecey little spoon, or simply 'little spoon' - you had a good run little man, not many of us, hardly any in fact can say that we managed to go more than 3 months at the start of our Pompey following days without knowing a defeat can we?

In fact maybe some of us can probably say that before this none of us had ever known such an unbeaten stretch like this at any point in our Pompey lives either?

Let the unbeaten stretch re-start again now - hopefully he, and of course us, can reach the 100 this time...

If he's going to be a Pompey fan, he's going to have to get used to it sooner or later! He's cute!

Wow, wherever I go on this site, it's always Spurs fans bitching about something. And it's always someone new, I guess they've got one asshole for each of the other teams in the league. :)

Let's hope little Reece doesn't have to put up with lots of lower division heartache and years of trying to catch up with the scummers like we have...! On the contrary his first game will be at a new ground, we'll be in Europe, and Spurs will be 'underachieveing'....cough.....

Yeah bullers, nice one, get a one off win which brings you up to a mighty 18 points (12 behind us if you hadn't realised) and now Spurs are going romp away with the Premiership I suppose ha!! No doubt you England No 2 or maybe 3 will cock up as he normally does and you slip back down to your rightfull underachieving best
