'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Happy New Year fellas!

We have just about waved goodbye to 2007, it has had a few 'blips' along the way, particularly towards the end, but on the whole can anyone honestly say that they have been disappointed with it - Pompey wise that is? I know that I cannot say that I have been to be honest.

2008 is now virtually here, we start off by going to Reading tomorrow looking to kick-start the New Year in the right way, that way being a performance worthy of one that we want to see and hopefully all 3 points to get us back on track - do not forget that you can keep up to date and share your thoughts on the game with Reading right here! Shortly before kick off when the teams have been announced they will be published here, then those of us not fortunate enough to make the game - if we are feeling in a fit enough state - can share your comments in the section below as the game goes on.

As I finish I will say this, remember those near and dear to you, or even those that fall into that bracket that are no longer here. I would also like to say a few words on Phil O'Donnell who tragically died the other day while playing for Motherwell, it was a tragic loss and my thoughts are with his family now. Also think of those less fortunate than yourself and also think of others as well as just yourself - if we all do our bit we can make the world a better place in the New Year and beyond.

I am not trying to put a dampener on things, but this evening is often a night for reflection not just an excuse to get 'beered up'.

Those are my words of wisdom out of the way, so all that is left is for me to wish all of you - along with your families and friends - and members of Vital Pompey new and old, as well as everyone else on Vital Football full stop all the best for the New Year, lets hope it is good for us all eh fellas.

Cheers!

Now go have a drink or two, or three, or four...

Also great to pay tribute to Phil O'Donnell a man who gave much to Scottish football in general and Motherwell in particular. Having heard the sad news on Saturday made be forget about the Boro game.

yep phil o'donnell signed many items for me over the years and was a gentleman, a top man and also a top, top footballer who somehow only won 1 scotland cap... yep, like you dave this was another thing that made me soon forget about the boro game.

Have a great New Year everyone, still an early start to get to Reading, hope the New Year starts with a bang for us. I agree with the sentiments in regard to Phil O'Donnell, i posted a message on the Motherwell website and i heard that one of the Clan Pompey lads was taking a shirt with messages from the Pompey Fans up there.. God bless everyone and i hope all your dreams come true.

yep happy new year to everyone above - and more... i like to think that vital pompey is mirroring what pompey are doing on the pitch, it like them has its odd stutter but 2008 will be the year for both - but for this will all need to pull in the right direction to make it happen - that applies to backing the players and coaching staff too, sure we give it all that when deserving but not just 'for the sake of it'... and jeez Chix have you been up all night making comments, 250plus points already...

i had to do several double takes... its like almost a third of the whole of the pts he got last month in less than 11 hours, well probably less than that as i would doubt the scores were re-set dead on midnight - that is some impressive posting chix... god only knows what the forum is gonna look like when i have a look - it could well have become vital chix :-)

ive got a nice little article about our previous 8 games (and how we did relative to what we predcted) that should be out AFTER the reading game - so another poll of how many points will we pick up over the next 6 games might be good...

Nothing untoward about the 250+ points fellas it's just that two little girls decided to wake up very early (5ish) this morning and then promptly went back to sleep leaving Daddy with nothing to do at about 6am (I only went to bed at 3 myself !).. So I sat at the laptop with a steaming hot coffee and a packet of Alka Seltzer and single handedly wish every club on Vital a Happy New Year ... I'll tell you about my findings and a few ideas I've had later but thought I better clear up the fact that my fingers are not actually attached to the keyboard and I dont (yet) have stumps... but if Pompey play badly this afternoon and I go into rant mode .. it might just happen !!

rug - ive already written the artice (just need to fill in the reading score) but the poll would have to be based on the 6 games AFTER reading...so i wont submit it untill then...ive done an article+poll every 6 games, but was a little late with the most recent one, as i was out of the county...luckily someone did a prediction for 4 games (slightly overlapping) - so i have just put them together...but will be finished AFTER we have beaten reading
