Teams - Reading v Pompey

This is the Reading line up:

James Harper
Kalifa Cisse
Bobby Convey

The only changes from the last game saw Glen Johnson return from injury in place of Lauren - who dropped to the bench - and Sulley Muntari come in for Kanu, who also dropped to the bench. There was no start for Dave Nugent though as had been hoped for, if not expected...

Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Papa Bouba Diop
Richard Hughes
Sulley Muntari
Niko Kranjcar
Benjani


Substitutes

Dave Nugent
Matty Taylor
Kanu

nuge a sub, and no mvuemba...hughes still in there...could have been better, but if we win 7-2, i wont complain
pompeycarpet
ive got to admit that im very disappointed not to have seen a start for nuge... also abit disappointed to have maybe not seen a few others make way, but there you go lets see how we go...
pompeyrug
and taylor on the subs bench too...all in all, not the line up i would hav picked...
pompeycarpet
had hoped that taylor would start, was almost certain that nuge would start - but should have known... utaka better do something today or i dont know what i'll do!
pompeyrug
hreidersons current form has alsoleft a little to be desired...is pamerot injuered?
pompeycarpet
Back to HRs trusted line up.
eastneydave
14:58 4-5-1 - Very predictable but as least Kanu has been rested - I'm convinced he's not playing anybody who is not african in case of injury while the ANC is on - Thank God Johnson is playing I was worried about him ... there's a big B&Q next to Readings Ground !
Chix
phew, wouldnt want him getting bored would we...
pompeycarpet
No change there then, HR was just saying this is his favoured formation.
pompey4me
great minutes applause for phil o'donnell.
pompeyrug
14:59 Applause for O'Donnell - Nice touch - Come on you Blues... nah I mean Whites !! - Play up Pompey !! lets get 2008 off with a bang
Chix
im okay with the 4-5-1 but i bloody bet kanu gets on before nuge doesnt he...
pompeyrug
Muntari to take?
pompey4me
15:04 - Get in PENALTY
Chix
good atmosphere...pompey fans very noisy!
pompeycarpet
...And a Red Card !!
Chix
peno peno peno come on krunch
stillthewhizz
Go Krunchi...
pompey4me
penalty and red card?
pompeyrug
yep red - muntari has to take it... or krunchie...
pompeyrug
Krunchie to Take ???
Chix
It must be in his contract Kanu before Nugent. Come on Pompey. Could do with breaking another jinx & winning on New Years day.
storagematt
God damn it
pompey4me
im clearly running a few minutes behind...
pompeycarpet
******** hell not again....
pompeyrug
15:05 **********
Chix
Come on you blues, against 10 men now....surely?
pompey4me
Will we ever score a penalty again??
eastneydave
Why do we have no confidence at the moment?
stillthewhizz
Fck it, how many pens do we have to miss.
storagematt
Come on lads a missed Pen but we now have 11 against 10 - Change the formation NOW - Push Utaka alongside Benjani, left Sulley take the left and Krunchie go on the Right - Go 442 Harry - if not now then never
Chix
*******************
pompeycarpet
great chance to take a lead, gain confidence, and go for my prediction...we failed!!!
pompeycarpet
get in sol!
pompeyrug
Sol Campbell - woah woah Sol Campbell - woah woah He came from Arsenal - He didn't cost .. alot ! - get in 1-0 UP !!
Chix
worse still, we look very open at the back...
pompeycarpet
Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss. Go Sol Go.
storagematt
Weyhey, think i had him in the prediction league...some points for me! Thing is I had Jamo to score the 2nd!
pompey4me
god **** this, im running about 3 minutes behind you guys...
pompeycarpet
I think this is going to be another Pompey Reading whopper. Why can't we do this at home?!
stillthewhizz
LOL chix, I have to make up words to that song although the kids Know what the song is!
pompey4me
you did mate, him and jamo... against 10 men with a lead we've got to build on this...
pompeyrug
That very important... at least Krunchie can get the penalty miss out of his head ... Why can we score away from home .. I just don't get it ....
Chix
I'll settle for nothing to happen & we win 1-0.
storagematt
You on-line then carpet, if in the pompey area tune radio to 107.4 the quay.
pompey4me
sorry fellas, i wouldnt settle for a 1-0 wi- we need a confidence booster, and 1 nil with a missed penalty wont be that...
pompeycarpet
a win is a win mate... we'll score more than 1 goal tho mate.
pompeyrug
... that said i still feel reading will score...
pompeyrug
same, they are playing a very open game - even with 10 men...
pompeycarpet
Hooray pop to the smallest room and Gol Sol!!!!!!
eastneydave
chix, about scoring at home, i know set pieces shouldnt be any different, but sol was saying the pitch is very small and it hinders playing the passing game to open up the opposition.
pompey4me
benjani is clearly getting a ot of space...fully expect him to score today!
pompeycarpet
The BBC have us on 76% possession.
storagematt
the small pitch - it helped us when we were new to the premiership - as we could contain teams well, but now its backfiing on us...
pompeycarpet
lol, great turn by diop, but the ball wasnt there! God, i hate listening on the radio!
pompey4me
just try typng in something like "live footy" on google... im sure something will come up!
pompeycarpet
yep, i know what you mean p4me... and also agree carpet if benji doesnt score today i will be surprised, hopefully nuge can get on at some point and if he does i could still see him doing something - i just hope he gets on ahead of kanu...
pompeyrug
15:22 Krunchie has switched to the right and Utaka has moved further up front ... Well done Harry ... you've taken my advice - I now declare myself tactical supremo .... We'll score again within the next 10 mins ...
Chix
you can watch football online cant you, but you have to be careful which ones you use... and should never pay for it!
pompeyrug
hope we do score in the next 10 mins - we have had the posession, and the chances!
pompeycarpet
i hope you are right mate, and i think you will be right... utaka's pace will trouble murty.
pompeyrug
benjanis pasce has been troubling them...utakas SHOULD kill them...
pompeycarpet
Yeah the small pitch does seem to be a problem at Fratton when playing 5 across the middle ... more reason to go 442 !!
Chix
YABBA DABBA DOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PompeyGleamer
You dont have to convince me chix, but i dont pick the team.
pompey4me
Hi gleams.
pompey4me
YES. BLOODY HELL THOUGH LADS, HOW MANY PENALTYS WILL DO WE NEED TO MISS.
PompeyGleamer
oh, nice of you to drop bye
pompeycarpet
thats one way to make an entrance isnt is mate :-)
pompeyrug
knock off the caps will your gleams... cheers.
pompeyrug
o, sorry lads. just ecstatic. couldnt listen to the game on the radio on the way back, so just found the scores, kranjacr misses or was the pen saved?
PompeyGleamer
hit the post.:(
pompey4me
hit the post...
pompeycarpet
blooming heck. deary me, well like you said pompey4me, down to 10 men, should be ok. good sol got on the sheet, PUP!
PompeyGleamer
yep hit the post trying to do a 'john aldridge' shuffle... caps dont worry me, but i know some people see if as 'shouting over the net' so vital prefer you not to do it...
pompeyrug
prediction: Pompey should have killed the game by half time, but go in 2 goals to nil...but shock: just before half tiume, reading score a lucky goal!
pompeycarpet
15:33 ummm... did the ref bottle booking Murty for a second time and reducing Reading to nine men !
Chix
Murty should have gone.
storagematt
ahh deary me, if we go in 2-0 i will be a happy man, keep it 1-0, be a derranged nervous monkey.
PompeyGleamer
by that, i mean, it shouldnt have been a yellow card...sorry lads...
pompeycarpet
i reckon mate - ive just said the same thing in my match report - which im writing as the game goes, as i always do...
pompeyrug
nope, wasnt a yellow...
pompeycarpet
carpet, are u watching the game through that sopcast thing?
PompeyGleamer
yes i am gleamer (and actually its TVAnts this game)
pompeycarpet
15:38 Hope you are wrong Carpet but I was thinking that we could do with another before Half Time
Chix
dont forget fellas we've got to be careful how much you mention 'those' kinds of sites...
pompeyrug
oh, i didnt finish my prediction...just after half time, reading score a lucky equaliser...then pompeycontinue there domination, and go 5-2 up...then it goes to 6-3, then 7-3, then a lucky reading goal to finish it off...
pompeycarpet
sorry rug, hammers have effectively lost, evrton are being held, perfect afternoon at the moment.
PompeyGleamer
it doesnt SAY its illegal rug, and the servers at least are funded legally...and as far as i can see, it is just streaming from elsewhere...so inherently, there is nothing obvios wrong with it...other than he commenty being in japaneese
pompeycarpet
15:42 I thought I was hearing things when I heard Pompey were getting crosses in ....... Then I heard that Diop had missed a sitter... back to reality
Chix
Englands no 1 england england no1!
pompey4me
41 - Poor: Hreidarsson picks out Diop at the back post brilliantly, but the Senegalese midfielder places his unchallenged header over the bar. What a waste, will he ever score?
PompeyGleamer
15:43 We are wobbling Carpet .. if they score I blame you
Chix
and what a sitter diop missed!!!
pompeycarpet
weve had plenty of shots, and have completly dominated the game at least...
pompeycarpet
i know the site you are on about carpet - and yep, i know it isnt illegal, but we still cannot mention any of them by name... i hope these missed chances - such as diop's traditional missed sitter dont cost us... that almost did if it wasnt for jamo...
pompeyrug
yes, me to, ur always pessimistic :)
PompeyGleamer
ok, sorry rug...and i have a feeling that diops mised chance could cost us...
pompeycarpet
Benji hits the bar!!!!!! (woodwork not alcohol)
storagematt
Half Time - 1-0 up but Reading will come out and fight for everything.. No complacany fellas.. We've got a very tough 45 minutes coming up
Chix
yep. but harry wont let that happen surely? if we lose this.....
PompeyGleamer
Scum losing1-0 at home to Watford.
storagematt
how we SHOULD have won, Reading booed off at half time, portsmouth left wishing they should have scored more - will we regret missing the penalty, the sitter, and hitting the bar?
pompeycarpet
no worries carpet... damn that poxy woodwork! agree chix were in for an interesting 2nd half - we need to get that second goal, if we do its really going to open it up and we could score more as they'll pour forward...
pompeyrug
if only we had beaten the boro. we would be coastin through the league. benji hit the bar, could be 4-1 from the soundds of things.
PompeyGleamer
...earlier in the game, i thought my outrageus 7-2 prediction might come true...im less convinced now, but as we know, it is easily possible to score 8 goals in 1 half!!!
pompeycarpet
been grouting my shower while listening, NUtaka sounds like hes having his best game for 2 months, on top in midfield, and Diop could fall in a bag of tits and come out sucking his thumb!
paultsmouth
.. but wasn't it 1-1 at half time at Fratton ? ... and also at White Hart Lane on Saturday ... It could still happen but I'm not sure my nerves could take it ...
Chix
we were 2-1 up at h/t in that game werent we... a game i will never forget...
pompeyrug
ye, diop really needs to score.
PompeyGleamer
half time stats: Possesion 35% (R), 65% (p), shots on target3 (R), 9 (P), shots off target 1 (R), 4 (P) saves 13 (R), 2(P) and reading have 1 yellow, and 1 red to pompeys none, whilst pompety were offside twice to readings none...
pompeycarpet
lookin ok at the minute, would like a clean sheet in truth, but so far, so good.
PompeyGleamer
get a second goal, get nuge on, nuge scores a hatrick, and we never look back...
pompeycarpet
There's absolutely no reason to use Kanu today now .. Against ten men we shouldn't need to hold the ball up .. If we get another I too would expect to see Nugent given another run out .. if for nothing else but to get him fit for Saturdays game ... in which surely he has to start..
Chix
Johnson sound lively also, need another one quick, run at Murty he has only got one life left
paultsmouth
oh, 1 stat i didnt mention, was that at the moment, we are 7th, on equal points with everton...
pompeycarpet
16:06 - Underway again no subs on Pompey
Chix
Black and Gold Army, Black and Gold Army
pompeycarpet
uep get at murty and he will follow sonko in going off - early goal in the 2nd half is needed then we could have a field day... if kanu gets on ahead of nuge today then i'll be very, very angry...
pompeyrug
remember what we said about confidence in the tunnel? well our players are simply oozing confidence right now!!!
pompeycarpet
7th as it stands eh - Carpet that's a bit more like it could stand us in good sted for when we entertain Derby and go to Sunderland ..before Man U and Chelsea!!
Chix
Play up pompey. really likein the live experiance. but my dog has run out of typing juice, hows holly goin rug?
PompeyGleamer
oh, and middlesbrough have had more shots on target than everton...could they win that? or is that just being ridiculas?
pompeycarpet
she's having the day off today mate... yep, i think it has proved again today that as an away feature it is most certainly something that works.
pompeyrug
- and were still only halfway through the match...
pompeycarpet
...and theres already 125 comments...
pompeycarpet
We seem to be playing possession football without creating much (Do we need an Agentinian Gleamer) which is ok against ten men.. we can wear them down and then pick them off Arsenal style
Chix
dont seem to be doing much at the moment, meaning yes, we do need a creative midfielder...
pompeycarpet
weve got to try and step it up abit, im still worried about only being a goal up - we need to pressure their 'dodgy' defence more, maybe a change is needed?
pompeyrug
16:20 We seem to have left our confidence in the dressing room - Do we need to think about a sub for next ten mins or so ... Taylor or Nuge perhaps..
Chix
Scum losing 2-0.
storagematt
possibly one 22 year old striker?
pompeycarpet
but who? I think theres a fella, Andres his name. back to the game, looking ok, boro just denied by a majical save by howard apparently.
PompeyGleamer
if they can keep up that pressure, we could return to 6th!!! or we could just score another few goals...
pompeycarpet
61' Looks like Kanu is coming on for Portsmouth...
PompeyGleamer
bloody hell 'arry... kanu on again!!!
pompeyrug
9 fags and four bottles of stella so far... The misses has a hang-over the kids are knackered.. The dog is looking attractive ...
Chix
Richard hughes booked. Am I right in thinking both Diop & Mutari are on 4 booking each. Would make sense for them both to pick a 5th before they go away, thus using up suspensions when they couldn't play anyway.
storagematt
if reading equalise we could be screwed now...
pompeyrug
Scum 3 down. Go the away teams.
storagematt
Kanu on for Benji. Are we looking to hang on or score a second???
storagematt
KANU - Oh for **** sake - We've lost our pace up front (unless Utaka pulls his finger out) Why cant Benjani last 90 minutes - I love the bloke but why can't he pace himself... I'm begining to worry now
Chix
yep, that makes sense doesnt it - diop will get booked today, he always gets booked...
pompeyrug
one glass of orange juice down, dog not around, and kanu isnt looking attractive.
PompeyGleamer
get in utaka!!!
pompeyrug
kanu? KANU???? WHY THE ************************ @~#} %^*^ %^£$*...we need YOUTH!!!!
pompeycarpet
Everton 1 up at Boro. Andy Johnson.
storagematt
oooo oooo ooootaka
pompey4me
2-0 Utaka HAS pulled his finger out !! - Now that's better ..... See Kanu did make a difference ... I think he's wonderful ;)
Chix
andy johnson, wat a fool. ahh well, everton are dead certs for europe anyway, we need villa and spurs to drwa.
PompeyGleamer
2-0. Yessssssssssssssss. Utaka, about friggin time.
storagematt
Don't you just love these Africans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
storagematt
Do his confidence good for the ACN, lets hope he comes back ready to play like we know he can
pompey4me
nugent would have scored 2...but bad news about everton...
pompeycarpet
god, nigerea had better win them...that would mean we had the 2 most confident players in the league!!!
pompeycarpet
I'm feeling less nervous now fellas ... I think we can find some gaps now and hopefully get another couple .. but I think they may come from Midfield ..Krunchie or Munners.. but surely not Diop ..
Chix
lets get nuge on now...
pompeyrug
if boro just snatch a goal. i feel a fool saying it, but well done john, another round the keeper goal.
PompeyGleamer
Nuge on for who though ... probably only Utaka who's less likely to come off now he's scored... Can't see Harry changing anything for the next ten or so
Chix
Everton 2 up !!
Chix
3pts behind 4th place (so what liverpool have 2 games in hand...) - we're still a force to contend with!!!
pompeycarpet
doh! we need boro to BEAT everton, not collapse on us!!!
pompeycarpet
yep ,but we need to carry this form back to Fratton.
pompey4me
we need a bigger pitch at fratton...heck, we need a bigger stadium at fratton!!!
pompeycarpet
Everton 2 up. Mcfadden.
storagematt
o well, i expected an everton win, if villa and city lose, it will be a great weekend.
PompeyGleamer
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. Glen Johnson nearly wrapped up. Good save by the keeper, git.
storagematt
true - just a shame that we couldnt have beaten middlesbrough...we would now be sitting in 5th place (or 4th if we had won 10-0)
pompeycarpet
Macca's saying utaka finally found his feet. Thats what's been wrong with him then, no feet in his boots.
pompey4me
who just replaced hughes?
pompey4me
see, i told you there was something odd about him!
pompeycarpet
Come on Pompey let's get another just to frighten every other team we go to .. including Chelsea and Manure
Chix
Lauren on for Hughesie
Chix
12 fag - on 6th bottle of Stella - Wife still hungover .... Kids still playing quietly.. Dogs just turned me down... 4 mins to go 2-0 I think we can relax now fellas .. but I'd like another...
Chix
hopefully hughesie isnt badly injured - just a minor knock...
pompeyrug
- we need to get more goals!!!
pompeycarpet
Super Matt!! Last time in Pompey colours?
pompey4me
Super Matt - He better not score two own goals ....
Chix
Rug - I have to say this idea is insipired - Oh hang on Krunchies coming off who's coming on
Chix
would be a shame if this was the last time we got to see matty in pompey colours...
pompeycarpet
chix, see my last.
pompey4me
As I was saying ... Rug this idea is inspired.. it's really good to 'talk' about the game with you lot during the game... It beats talking to myself... Excelent idea and well executed...
Chix
Back again - And we win 2-0.
eastneydave
cheers Chix :-)
pompeyrug
here here chix, i only stayed home today cos i couldnt face the pub again, but might find myself doing this more often. Another fine shift from 'the landlord'!
pompey4me
3 points, am i being greedy saying i'd still like to see a pompey goal at Fratton now?
pompey4me
Final Whistle - Well Done Pompey back on track now just go and beat Ipswich and Sunderland and bring that form home for the Derby game ... we must score against them at home surely...
Chix
2-0...and average result,..
pompeycarpet
and thanks to you too p4me... 3pts, great way to start the year - and this feature will return for future away games :-)
pompeyrug
...if only the FA cup game were at home...would have been the perfect chance to grab a home goal...
pompeycarpet
190 posts says it all. Good Idea Rug.
pompey4me
So, are we going home now or are we having a 'lock in' landlord?
pompey4me
Thanks fellas - A great experience and hopefully do it again on Saturday .... FA Cup third round day that's the most exciting day of the footballing calendar for me .... 3 points .. too many fags and I 've lost count of the stellas ... but I need the loo .... Cheers guys - Play up Pompey
Chix
The best way to start the year & to respond to that abject performance against Boro. Play up Pompey.
storagematt
Sod the loo if we are having a lock in ....
Chix
all in all, it could have been soo much better!!!
pompeycarpet
get in the blues, 3pts to kick off a fruitful 2008 and utaka has refound his form, just in time to leave for africa!
paultsmouth
oh, and the best bit, is that vitalpompey now have a 1-2 in the leaders board!!!
pompeycarpet
cant be better than 3 points!
pompey4me
Who is villa's game in hand against?
pompey4me
err, spurs this afternoon (200 comments!!!)
pompeycarpet
I can't let two hundred odd posts go without having the last word.. are you guys gonna let me have it ??
Chix
No certainly not!!
eastneydave
Well I though I was gonna to get it with that ..but foiled again... but that said unless somebodys comes back to this thread then I've got it anyway ...
Chix
...........that's what you think...hee hee.
eastneydave
Ahh but if I leave it long enough after the your next reply you will forget about it ... do I see a battle of wits developing ...
Chix
wits or twits?
eastneydave
'Probably the latter' he replies not wanting to give in :)
Chix
its only the first and chix has 312 posts, ***** me
jbaker
its only the first and chix has 312 posts, **** me
jbaker
thats a lot of posts! (sneaks in the back way to win!)
pompeycarpet
scooby dooby do, so someone once told me,?
PompeyGleamer
Well i dont want the last post, so i'll let you have it lads!
pompey4me
oops, i guess i'm winning at the moment.
pompey4me

pompeyrug
Yeah it was great Rug well done for setting it up and for thinking about it in the first place But.. If you think that's gonna be the last comment on this thread you are very much mistaken... this is...;)
Chix

pompeycarpet
Hi!

pompeycarpet
03/01/08 - 18:11 - Good try fellas ... but I WILL win... I've got this sussed .. you really ought to give up now and let me have the last word... Seriously I'm the type of person who will stand on a log for 27 hours just to win ...
Chix
oh, now im intrested - what is this clever tactic? and you must be warned, i am te sort of guy that will stand on a long for 28 hours just to win...you dont stand a chance! 03/01/08 - 18:43
pompeycarpet
03/01/08 - 22:32 - Carpet .. I will stand on a long or a log whatever you prefer but I will win.... I wonder what the world record is for the greatest number of replies to a thread is .... have you got the stamia ????
Chix
04/01/08 - 01:29 - Carpet you asleep ?
Chix
04/01/08 - 02:34 - Carpet .....Car....pet.... you asleep Carpet?

pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 00:00i cant beleive it! where are you?
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 00:32 - All present an correct... Had a bit of moment ... thought that if I left you by yourself all day you might get bored and fall off the log... Obviously not the case...
Chix
05/01/08 - 00:35 - CHICKS...no, ooops, CHIX...i cant beleive i am shouting for chix on a website...oh well... CHIX yoo hoo, anybody there?
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 00:47 - Yep I'm still here ... drifted off to vital Swansea to see what they had on the HAWks ahead of tomorrows game..
Chix
05/01/08 - 01:18 - Well thanks Carpet ... you call my name and don't turn up...
Chix
05/01/08 - 02:34 - Ah well - I'm off to bed then if your not there... keep your footing firm.. I'll be back early in the morning..
Chix
05/01/08 - 06:44 - Morning Carpet ... fancy a cuppa ?
Chix
05/01/08 - 12:26 - Just noticed a link to this thread from the main page ... i wonder if will get any visitors to the bottom on our thread..
Chix
05/01/08 - 12:58 - i noticed the link too...but i doubt it...
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 13:15 - Now here's an interesting thing beofre I posted the last comment I was on 499 points but it never gave me a point for the last post - I wonder if it will for this one ... will this take me over 500 for the month so far ... averaging 100 points a day so far !
Chix
05/01/08 - 13:17 - I got measely 1 point for that little lot
Chix
05/01/08 - 13:18 - But nothing for that the last comment
Chix
05/01/08 - 13:19 - But one for that .. which was the same length .. odd I've no idea how it works it out other than you need to balance the points between Poll, articles and forums..
Chix
05/01/08 - 13:30 - clearly you do - and posting lots of times in quick successsion doesnt seem to boost your score much
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 13:31 - for example, didnt get a point for that one
pompeycarpet

pompeycarpet

pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 15:01 - Oh ***** wrong game ... I'm off to the Ipswich thread... which could if we carry this one become another challenge... Who will get the last word on that thread I wonder !!
Chix
05/01/08 - 17:26 - im bored, give up now chix!!!...or i will have to resort to using a new stratergy, as my fingure hurts with all this scrolling down!!! (oh, and how many comments are on this one now?)
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 18:38 - Give up.. Give up are you pleading with me carpet.. on sign of finger ache and your on your knees ..... Not a chance... I said I would have the last word and I shall.... dream on dreamer.... as a soul band from the late 70's used to say.. can you name that tune?
Chix
05/01/08 - 19:41 - fine, if you wont give up, i will have to crush you like the fool that you are! and no, i cant name the tune from sole band from the late seventies - i wasnt born then, and im not sad enough to look it up...get a life, and accept you'll loose
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 19:42 - possibly a bit harsh from me...
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 22:23 - come on, where are you? given up?
pompeycarpet
05/01/08 - 23:25 - unlike you chix, i dont survive on 4 hours sleep a night...so im going to bed. but if this is the best you can mangage...pathetic!

06/01/08 - 05:23 - Day six begins with a nice cup of tea, hot buttered toast, some freshly squeezed Orange Juice and delivery of the Sunday papers by a scantiliy dressed vixen named Roxy. Roxy (who incidentally is blonde 5ft 11" long legged, large breasted Swedish dance instructor) is Chix's au pair. She performs all manner of household duties and accepts no payment whatsoever. her only condition of employment is that once a week Chix provides a one hour lesson on the History of Portsmouth Football Club... Todays lesson is the War Years...1939-45...
Chix
06/01/08 - 11:08 - maybe, if you are such an expert, you could write a couple of articles about the history of portsmouth football club for the less welleducated lot on this site?
pompeycarpet
06/01/08 - 11:46 - actually Carpet Ill happily do anything you want mate - I oftern stuggle for articles (there's so much to write about with Pompey) If you want a low down on a particular player just let me know who it is and I'll see what I can do.. Likewise I'm always in the 'members ideas' forum asking for ideas... put three in there yesterday.. oh and the B of the A to Z (which I will get finished one day is for 'beginings' it'll take you all the way back to where Pompey came froma dn how we started... I know I go on about the past (you will one day when you reach the magic 40) but what you don't realsie is that the years you living through now (not only from a Pompey point of view) are the best in your life..and no matter what you see in the rest of your life those days stay with you forever .. Christ I've gone all philosophical (sorry!) I sound like an old man writing his lifestory ... Seriously though as I said if you want something/some player specifically written about I'll happiliy do it and put it into am article...
Chix
06/01/08 - 18:54 - great, i will read with intrest and look forward too it...but im intrested, how old do you think i am? (oh, and by less well educated, i meant about pfc, not in general, as i like to think that i am quite well educated...) - being one of the "new breed" of pompey fan, i would love to know more about our past...although maybe you could suggest articles for ME to write...it would make our little conversations on this thread more intresting thn just "im going to win" "no, IM going to win" "no, IM GOING TO WIN!!!"...etc
pompeycarpet
06/01/08 - 21:58 - where are you?
pompeycarpet
06/01/08 - have you given up???
pompeycarpet
06/01/08 - 09:08- sorry, forgot the time of the last one...it was 09:07
pompeycarpet
06/01/08 - 15:33 - you have clearly forgotten, I WIN!!!
pompeycarpet
07/01/08 - 19:07 - it would seem i have got all my dats muddlesd up, and the previous 3 comments were actuially 07/01/08...standards are slipping, i apologise!
pompeycarpet
07/01/08 - 19:10 - oh, and its now well over 24 hours since your last post on this thread!
pompeycarpet
07/01/08 - 21:58 - GOD WHERE ARE YOU???
pompeycarpet
08/01/08 - 01:09 - Hi Carpet... i'm still here just been a bit busy today what with the new article for the Sunderland game I had to start and work and putting the kids to bed (I've got two little girls 3 & 0) one called Fratton the other called Milton .. anyway.. re your questions .. how old do I reckon you are... I don't know ... but to hazzard a guess (and please don't get upset if I insult you by guessing too old or too young) by the way you response to Gleamer and Jbaker (and I've a rough idea how old they are 16,17.. I'd say you were 15... and I only say that as Jbaker has mentioned a levels and Gleamer Uni and I don't recall you mentioning either soooo yeah I'd go for 15 or 16.... hang on a mo I'm going to look at your Knowing me knowing you... to see if I can be more accurate..
Chix
08/01/08 - 01:18 - I'm back I had a look but it threw me a little .. either you are older than I think or your grasp of the English language is very good for somebody of 15/16... I'm stuck to be honest... I don't recall you mentioing family, in fact I'm pretty sure that I've seen you mention that you live with your Dad (and mum) I guess... Dunno if pushed Isay 16... and fingers crossed I haven't really upset you... let me know, I'm intrigued.. back to the Pompey History thing/article thing ideas for you .. Ive a great idea of what you could do (been something I've wanted to do for a long time) but I want to know your age and the season you started supporting Pompey first ... well really I want to know how well you know Pompey in the Premiership... It's not a test but you'll need to do some research (I can help) - I'm off to bed some (even the night watchman needs sleep) I'll be back on tomorrow or Wednesday at some point..
Chix
08/01/08 - 17:48 - you are spot on with 16! i have a feeling i may have made a few bits up for the KMKY section, as i dislike putting stuff about me on the internet, but did not want to miss out on the fun! I started supporting Pompey just LAST YEAR! - as although about half my friends supported pompey untill then, i live to far away for someone of my age to get into them without any support from my parents - and the rest of my family are rugby fans! oh, and i beleive Gleamer is foing his GCSEs this year, so you are a little out (i think) with that, and jbaker is at college, doing A2 levels somewhere near Reading. Pompey in the premiership, i know last year (obviosuly) but before that, im not sure (i know where we finished, and points totals, and kit colours, but i couldnt name the team...). As for my grasp of the english language, your comments through me a bit, as my english teachers are certainly of the oposite opinion (GCSE B for english) - but aparanty my reading/writing age is very high, and i dont meen to brag, but my IQ is ... no, cant say, sorry...(theres the element of being 16 creeping in - i just cant help but show off!)
pompeycarpet
09/01/08 - 00:58 I'm really glad I was right about your age .. I was worried all day in case I'd called a 60 year old bloke 16 ! Ok here's your mission if you choose accept it .. this season is Pompeys 5th in the premiership, last season was the 4th and so on.. what I was thinking of doing was a series of articles about players who have played for Pompey in the premiership but have subsequently left... and we could call the series..'they walked he plank.. or something like that (to depict the fact that they have left... Norwich use a similar thing on one of their sites refering to Canaries... they call it 'they've flown the nest' ..Now, considering you haven't been supporting Pompey for very long i reckon there will only be about 10 or so players that you don't actually know (if that) I can come up with a list of who has left and perhaps between us we could do the articles .. I reckon if we were to do five or so and then put the idea to Rug he'd definately go with it and could publish one every two weeks (in fairness he goes with most things, but I like to have a supply just to make sure that if i make a committment I can cover it or at least get it off the ground.. ) What do you reckon.. fancy researching the Pompey careers of Stefanovic, Berger, Sherringham, Lua Lua, Yakubu etc.. let me know if that floats your boat and perhaps we could talk a little more.... if not let me know what interests you (old games, other clubs connections to Pompey, old player, legends etc..and I'm sure I can come up with something that you could do (with my help if you wanted it) that could be a real addition to the site and also give you some of the knowledge you want.. you'd be surprised how quickly you learn things when you enjoy the subject matter.. Anyway let me know what you think and we'll see where it goes... 16 eh ! whippersnpper ;) I'm more than double that ... 1992 ... I spent that entire year clubbing i think !!
Chix
oh, and that was 09/01/08 - 17:38
pompeycarpet
1991...anyway, that sounds like a gret idea - i will try to some looking up about the people you mentioned (Stefanovic, Berger, Sherringham, Lua Lua, Yakubu) - as i know who they are already. rug would almost certainly be u for it, as he likes everything like this (;-)) and another suggestion for the name could be "theyve floated away" - just another suggestion...but im open to calling it whatever.
pompeycarpet
10/01/08 - 17:32 - Hi ya Carpet - I'll dig out some names later tonight and if we can come up with a list of who we need to do that will also help us (although as you say there are some you know already .. But some are really obscure) We can also decide if we are going to focus just on their Pompey career or what they did before as well or what they did before and after ... I'm open to suggestions... as for the name of the articles .. I like your suggestion and I've also been thinking and have another angle on it ... we could call it 'Jumped or Pushed' and invite 'the readers' to give their view.... I haven't thought if it would suit all of them but some are obvious and some are open to debate (Gary O'Neil !) .. anyway i'll be back later sometime between 8 & 10 I reckon.. Oh and i also think we need to do an introductory article (not focussing on a player).. but explaining the feature...
Chix
ok, that seems fair enough. i dont really have much time to actually WRITE articles during the week (6th form woork etc.) - and these will probably take quite a bit of researchin at least from me - ut i will start with the few names we have got for now)
pompeycarpet
10/01/08 - 17:53 - sorry, in case you wanted to know, i sent this message 2 minutes after the previous one...
pompeycarpet
10/01/08 - 22:07 - Ok Carpet.. If it helps i can do the research bit for you... That's the part I can do quickest.. Shout if you need any help and in the meantime I'll get a list together of all the players that have played for Pompey in the prem and subsequently left..
Chix
10/01/08 - 22:15 - and how many players is this going to be? sounds like a lot! oh, and should we be doing the players in the order they left, or jumbled up, with some that people might find...more intresting...scattered throughout the others, or just generlly jumbled up?
pompeycarpet
13/01/08 - 00:07 - I reckon we do them in any order we please ... The thing is we have a starting point 2003/04 season so there is a cut off ... I'd go with some you know to start with but I've also had an idea of the format too .. We could do a profile to start with like a) Previous clubs, cost of transfers, how much we brought them for sold them for how many aprpearences they made .. etc.. If this forum could format a post I'd explain better .. Tell you what .. I'll pick a player do one and them send to you as an example .. I'll go for ....
Chix
13/01/08 - 0017 - ......Boris Živković.. I'll do him as an example and when done I'll send you and email with the article if you pm me your email address..
Chix
what do you mean you cant format a post?
pompeycarpet
wow, that came out a little bigger than expected!!! anyway, ill pm you my highly imaginative email now - 13/01/01 - 18:31
pompeycarpet
18/01/08 - 02:07 - Carpet you must show me how to do this .. also I want to discuss how 'will it ever happen' accures so many point so quiclkly... it jsut aint on you know...
Chix
it is simple html - [font size="2" color="blue" face="arial">text heretext here - but just replace the square brackets with greater and less than signs. you can change the colour to almost anything you want, and the font/font size too. but if thats too confusing for you, you could just go to this site, and it does it for you...http://www.ibdguy.com/makehtml/ - but i must add, dont use the picture bit, as it is mostly illeagal (stealing bandwidth, not the site) and partly i dont think vital like it.
pompeycarpet
ahh, something went wrong with my psot there -you need to type {font size="2" color="blue" face="arial">text heretext here - but relace the bracket things with the greater or less than symbols
pompeycarpet
ok, this is very weird...it doesnt seem to be working...text here
pompeycarpet
hmmm, yes, type <"font size="2" color="blue" face="arial">text here - but remove the speechmarks to get the blue "text here"
pompeycarpet
bugger, i forgot to say which speech marks to remove... lets try again... type <$font size="2" color="blue" face="arial">text here but without the doller signs...that should work...
pompeycarpet
yep, that worked...
pompeycarpet
...26/01/08 - 10:36 - I WIN!!!!!! (i got the last post!)
pompeycarpet
29/01/08 - 10:00 - i win, i got the last :-)
