3pts the expectation against Boro

Pompey are expected to pick up all 3pts against Boro today! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I completely share.

You do not get any easy games, anyone that thinks that you do is very, very misguided but it is understandable to see why such a high percentage of people feel that we will beat Boro - which, with all due respect to them with previous records and current seasons performance we really should do, particularly if we are seriously looking to maintain our hard work in the first half of the season.

Another goalless return against Arsenal in the 0-0 draw was very welcome, but if we cannot break down Boro and end our baron goal run and also not pick up the points too serious questions will be asked - I am sure that we will be able to win though.

What the poll asked - Pompey v Boro?

How you voted - Pompey win 90%, Boro win 5%, Draw 5%

Current Poll - We are just a couple of days away from the January sales kicking in, business can begin again and areas that are needing looking at can be serviced.

Most areas in our squad are covered, but a few could still do with strengthening, if not improving themselves but which area(s) of our side are weakest - this is what pompeyrug wants to know with this - 'where do we most need to strengthen out squad during the sales?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

any less and any aspirations for Europe will dead in the water, Boro aren't as strong as last year, but remember they DID beat Arsenal
paultsmouth
this is a must win for sure. The boys need to stop *****ing around & show the desire to get back on track. In my opinion that was a great result agains Arsenal, but mean absolutly foook all if we dont get the job done today...we all keep preaching that we can reach Europe, if so, this, & many other games HAVE to be a home win!
CharlieChimes
if we dont win, then Im going to do a 'boro fan' and throw my season ticket at harry! actually no, i wont, i will go and throw him a scrunched of piece of paper, 'JERMAINE'!!
PompeyGleamer
Charliechimes I agree this is the game where the players have to wake up realise who they are up against, realise they have a crowd to please and then smash Boro out of sight - I'd take 1-0 now to be cautious but I'm expecting 2,3 or 4 - It has to come today. No more excuses we need to see goals goals goals - Come on you Blues do us proud

we had a performance against arsenal, one that i was mroe than happy with... we must build on this today with another performance and a win, 1-0 would do me but i feel today is the day when we score a few...
pompeyrug
not much to say really - 3 pts is expected, and the only worry is that will leave us open to the "lightning" pace of stewert downing (...) who could rip us apart down the counter attack. Easily possiblethat we will go down hard!!!
pompeycarpet
Ohhhh, expectations. Rarely do they work for us. However even if Lawro has tipped us to win, I do expect a win.
storagematt
Just hope the players dont get too complacent. A performance like that against arsenal coupled with a 4-4-2 formation will result in a win.
pompey4me
if lawro has tipped us to win, we're screwed. but today is the day we trust lawro, and come away with the three points
jbaker
Your home run has got to change eventually maybe Boro will chip in with a couple of own goals to get you off and running.
TergeHauge
On the Sol to Spurs story, breaking news is there will be a straight swap for either Bent or Berbatov.

Bye bye European dream... you guys were poor today.

My Earlier Post... Charliechimes I agree this is the game where the players have to wake up realise who they are up against, realise they have a crowd to please and then smash Boro out of sight - I'd take 1-0 now to be cautious but I'm expecting 2,3 or 4 - It has to come today. No more excuses we need to see goals goals goals - Come on you Blues do us proud My Post Now ... Suggest the players in blue look up Pride and workrate in a dictionary - Pompey you were dreadful today. Each and every one of you... There is no hiding place ALL must improve and quickly
