Teams - Ipswich v Pompey

This is the Ipswich line up:

Neil Alexander
Fabian Wilnis
Alex Bruce
Castro Sito
David Wright
Liam Trotter
Owen Garvan
Gavin Williams
Danny Haynes
Billy Clarke
Pablo Counago


Substitutes
Shane Supple
Richard Naylor
Tommy Miller
Jamie Peters
Alan Lee


A few changes were made, there was no place in the squad for Sulley Muntari but fellow Africans Papa Bouba Diop, John Utaka and Kanu all started.

Arnold Mvuemba and Pedro Mendes came in Muntari and Richard Hughes. There was no place for Benjani in the squad - but surprise, surprise 'the golden boy' Kanu started up front with Dave Nugent on the bench, Matty Taylor is virtually nailed on to leave after his omission from the squad...

So we line up like this:

David James
Glen Johnson
Sol Campbell
Sylvain Distin
Hermann Hreidarsson
John Utaka
Arnold Mvuemba
Papa Bouba Diop
Pedro Mendes
Niko Kranjcar
Kanu


Substitutes
Asmir Begovic
Lauren
Djimi Traore
Dave Nugent
Noe Pamarot

Your Comments

I am going to have first comment as Cambridge United take the lead at Wolves.
eastneydave
really happy to see mvuemba start, but as good as kanu can be im less than impressed that he is starting again!... the fella can do now wrong so im starting to get very, very wound up with the fact that he is always getting the call ahead of nuge!
pompeyrug
muntari dropped - for being to cocky? no taylor - hes out, which is a real shame!!!! mvuemba back - which is always nice to see. utaka and diop have something to prove befoe leavig, but why oh why oh why is kanu starting ahead of nugent?
pompeycarpet
Kanu is awesome, and his creativity will rip ipswich to shreds.
PompeyGleamer
looking at our bench, we have no-one that can come on and change the game (aside from nugent) - 3 defenders and a goal keeper - we really need to get some players in fast!
pompeycarpet
kanu, kanu, kanu, kanuuuuuuu
PompeyGleamer
kanu, kanu, hes going to score today, kanuuuu, woow, kanuuuu, woow, he comes from arsenal, hes going to score today?!
PompeyGleamer
gleamer - i just would have preffered nugent, who i think is potentially just as creative!
pompeycarpet
i like kanu, i think the fella is a genuis but he cant run, he can barely walk so playing him up front alone is almosy pointless... what happened to 'arry's 'kanu can't play 2 games a week' - this will be the 2nd that he has started in a week and he came on in another didnt he, not to mention the games just before... its a joke, last week was almost insulting to nuge as 'arry had admitted kanu was shattered yet he still turned to him ahead of nuge against reading didnt he... it might sound like i dislike kanu and love nuge, it isnt the case i just want players to be given a fair crack of the whip and not all are in my opinion, whilst others play - not just kanu - regardless...
pompeyrug
It seems HR is determined to get everything out of the Ghana bound boys before they leave but why no Sulley? The bench as carpet says is a bit thin but we can always move players around move Utaka up front etc with Lauren or Johnson playing side side.
eastneydave
Chim Chimmery Chim Chimmery Chim Chim Cheroo Do we need a Korean when we've got Kanu ? Chim Chimmery Chim Chimmery Chim Chim Cheroo Do we need a striker - Well I think we do !
Chix
but unless he's called kanu he wont get a game will he Chix :-) i guess we called always sign kanu's brother, not sure who he plays for at the moment tho... is utaka playing up front alongside kanu?
pompeyrug
Rug .. I think Kanu should be given a fair crack of the whip ! and I can think of a certain 22 year scoucer who would probably love to do it ... Come on you Blues.. oh are we in White or Black ??
Chix
yep agree, take out the african and our squad is looking very thread bare!
pompeyrug
Nah - It's 4-5-1 Kanu up front on his own would be my guess..
Chix
Pompey are in Black !!... which after been unlucky last year seems to be quite lucky for us .... Whistle ... KICK_OFF
Chix
shock news, David nugent has changed his name to david kanu, and is actually playing today...
pompeycarpet
he must be 'fresh' now then, no tiredness anymore then... come on pompey, lets get into round 4.
pompeyrug
15:07 Not sure if anybody mentioned it this morning or on another thread but we were 40/1 to win the cup according too Sky this morning.. Wish I thought about having a little wager...
Chix
doubt we will win, but wouldnt that be nice? or at least get into the final, against a team above us in europe
pompeycarpet
15:08 I'd forgotten that Hermann played for Ipswich, was there for three years .. he went down with them didn't he? .. Bit of a shaky start fellas .. Play up Pompey...
Chix
yep, one of the few sides he has been relegated with... got my money on us to win the cup - come on daddy needs a new paid of shoes!
pompeyrug
come on pompey, strong team/disappointing team, not happy to see kanu playing, he cant run!
jbaker
new pair of shoes even... im with you mate, i think ive made it clear that im not amused with kanu's inclusion yet again... almost a goal then from the fantastic johnson again!
pompeyrug
johnson appears to be playing well
jbaker
nugent should have started but good to see mvuemba get a game
jbaker
We can dream Carpet but looking at it logically we only need to win six games to win the cup... I just hope we always get drawn away... nah not really I hope our home form improves .. A good cup run could be the thing to get the Fratton crowd going... Johnsons getting forward well ..
Chix
is everyone listening to the quay?
jbaker
Diop misses another sitter>
eastneydave
good pompey fans...commenty said " and it comes to oba diop...and that really hould have been a goal" - no surprises there then!
pompeycarpet
ipswich goal keeper is clearly fully aware of the "6 second rule"...THAT MUST have been longr
pompeycarpet
just a thought on jonathan walters - with him not being part of their squad this seems to suggest that he will be leaving ipswich as reported wont it? so much like taylor who has been left out you cant help but think this means he is going...
pompeyrug
mvuemba has looked good in our midfield - possibly one of our best players so far?
pompeycarpet
cmon, get into the game more, id take kanu off already!
jbaker
has kanu touched the ball?
pompeyrug
once...i think
pompeycarpet
...and he got it just then - but lost the ball!
pompeycarpet
hes just running around the centre circle!!!
pompeycarpet
off off off off off
jbaker
red card, YES!
jbaker
Jbaker - yep I'm listening tothe Quay. Rug Kanu has touched the ball .. 34th minute against Arsenal... Oh ! Pedro has been clattered and the guy has been sent off...
Chix
red card? typical mark halsey decision...
pompeyrug
and reading are winning. i bet kitson scored
jbaker
Trotter sent off -10 men against us again!!
eastneydave
Now, can we beat 10 men away from home..? ...agian ? The guys on the Quay seem to think the sending off was a bit harsh...
Chix
no, im sorry, what was the referee thinking???? that was NOT a red card, and i have a feeling he has just killed the game!!! i dont care that it will make it easier for us, as that was about as much a red card as...well, it was barely a free kick - there was a tiny amount of contact!!!
pompeycarpet
red card hey? Kanu, might have the luxury of being faster then 1 ipswich player then.
PompeyGleamer
You don realise fellas that in the event that we draw or lose (hopefully neither) but should it happen Ipswich will get a lot of the headlines '10 man championship side hold/beat European hopefuls' We MUST win now otherwise the press could be really demoralising...
Chix
ipswich are looking to hurt us now...revenge for the worst decsion i have seen for a very long time?
pompeycarpet
hah nice one gleamer. and apparently the decision was a terrible one. 'probably a booking, definitely not a red card' according to the quay
jbaker
and chix - we had to win anyway to avoid being eaten alive by the press. we want to be in europe, they are in the championship
pompeycarpet
good news at white hart lane, robinson has made another crazy mistake, something about pushing the ball in midair into his own net??
PompeyGleamer
in truth, having seen the replay twice, it looked more of a dive from mendes than anything else!
pompeycarpet
a portugese, DIVE? never...
jbaker
15:31 Carpet you are correct but it'll be worse it they only have ten men - HAWks are holding Swansea 0-0 too - Come on the 'ville..
Chix
...another apauling cross from utaka...oh, and the ipswich "mob"/"crowd" seem to be...well, very noisy!!!
pompeycarpet
cmon h&W
jbaker
For those on you here for the Reading match .. I'm bettering my record ... I'm averaging a bottle of stella every ten minutes.. my typing could get messy towards the end of the second half....
Chix
utakas made a couple of runs behind there full back - but actually, johnson has made more
pompeycarpet
do u type more the more u drink chix?
jbaker
Blackburn, Boro & Sunderland are all one down ... the more premiership team that get knocked out the easier passage we will have to the final... But i said that last year and then we drew Man Utd... Got to win this one first though !!
Chix
uh oh...last time you chalenged me to have the last post on that thread, what maddness will you do at the end of THIS game?
pompeycarpet
sounds a crap game on the radio, Halsey was harsh, but we can't look a gift horse....
paultsmouth
Jbker ...not quite .. in fact my drinking makes it worse.. the more I drink the more I rabbit.. Just wish I had a sexy secretary to type for me .. but you guys probably don't.. I'm bad enough as it is ...
Chix
i agree with paul, crappy game, not listening anymore, just surfing.
PompeyGleamer
Afternoon chaps; sorry I'm late
UKTony
just as well i have got a sexy secretary that types for me... well she will do soon anyway :-) i wish... not a good game is it, but is a game we must win - as paul says 'gift horse' we have to take it... come on 'arry get nuge on at half time.
pompeyrug
Diop has got to be the worst finisher since Ian Baird
paultsmouth
dont think weve had a shot yet
pompeycarpet
Not the best of starts then
UKTony
nuge...aparantly he always scores agaisnt ipswich
pompeycarpet
Jesus, this sounds awful, Nugent always scores against Ipswich not on the bench he won't, we are up against 10 men, surely we can afford another striker up front
paultsmouth
i hope you dont mean holly as your secertary rug.
PompeyGleamer
Not sure Carpet .. but I'll think of something no doubt... but I think Pault and Gleamer are right it's not the most exciting game ..but I bet the Vital stats show that we've had 16 shots on target ...
Chix
Diop just skied another one
paultsmouth
nope, she'll be replacing holly... this is poor isnt it - the last shot just summed things up...
pompeyrug
i think diops had a few shots carpet, just shocking ones tho. he scored a few linders for fulham tho
jbaker
hreiderson has been truly awful - we need to get him off, and put on a good left sided player, that knows how to defend, and support the left winger, can score goals, will put 100% effort in, and play for england one day...oh no, wait, we're selling him for what is it? 3 million???
pompeycarpet
Hi ya Tony .. Apart from the harsh sending off and a mazy run by Johnson you've not missed a great deal
Chix
jbaker - no shots on target...
pompeycarpet
this hasnt been the best game to listen to in the world, only one talking point, no close shots. wait, billy clarke missed from two yards out.
jbaker
...utaka hammers the ball over...sums the game up for us, a lo needs to be changed!!!
pompeycarpet
Come on Harry - It's half time.... we are a playing a championship side and do not have grip of the game .. I'll sing you a song... David Nugents magic, He wears a magic hat And when he plays Ipswich He said well fancy that He scores with his left foot, He scores with his right, When he plays against Ipswich, He'll score all *****ing night
Chix
quashie, quashie. (or should i say nugent nugent?)
jbaker
we should be behind...
pompeyrug
not much to offer on teh bench though, reply on the cards here boys?
PompeyGleamer
and yeah sorry carpet missed that one.
jbaker
very very close to conceeding!!!! well done glen (best player on the pitch, closely followed by mvuemba)
pompeycarpet
my names old gregg! Diop, needs to just realise he cant hit a barn door, giv it to arnie, hes got a good shot on him.
PompeyGleamer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcf3dENpVBw
PompeyGleamer
diop cant shot, he cant head - if he could do these two he would be a world beater... come on 'arry get nuge on for kanu at h/t - clearly he fooled you into thinking he was over his 'tiredness' but he was lying...
pompeyrug
player summary: James - not done much, but come running out a lot, johnson - excellent, best player on the pitch, faultless defending, and our only creative player. also the only player willing to make runs. Campbell - not done much wrong - or right really - same for distin - but ipswich have had the better of the chances i saw. Hreiderson - complete opposite to johnson, worst player on the pitch, cant defend, cant cross, cant keep the ball. get him off!
pompeycarpet
how could kanu fool anyone, i think there is some dodgy dealings, or is harry trying to trigger kanus new contract, with him playing 20 games, at this rate, he will be playing 60.
PompeyGleamer
I can't understand why Muntari ain't playing I wanted him to play & collect his 5th booking which would have given him a 2 match ban. So he goes away, & no doubt on his return will get booked, sooner or later & we will miss him. No Benji???
storagematt
arnie will be a star one day.
jbaker
utaka - non existen, apart from his apauling crosses, mendes, some nice passing - but nothing special, mvuemba, turns up all over the pitch, and shows flashes of creativity, diop, well, not as bad as hreiderson and...i guss w didnt get him to score goals...so he had better stop trying! kranjcar, more awfull set peices, and not a lot else. and thats all 10 of our players
pompeycarpet
why do u hate kanu, hes got a better touch then all our players, and can turn a game on his head, your being very biased carpet.
PompeyGleamer
totally agree jbaker - and ive said it several times before myself, that is why it is crucial that we keep him and play him this month...
pompeyrug
sorrygleamer, all i have seen him do this game is get the ball once, and he ran with it from one side of the centre circle to the other, then got tackled! that was it!
pompeycarpet
he will be starting all this month, and when the come back, perhaps diop will make way, if perfomances are consistent and good. I really like him, and like you two have sed, is something special.
PompeyGleamer
God, this is frustrating. Printer's broken, nearly fell out the loft earlier and now can't get Quay on the internet; having to make do with 5Live
UKTony
mvuemba can take corners, well he can get them off of the ground! and not having our star player benjani in the 16 is a bit stupid...
jbaker
Hi lads, just linked on. Been listening to the sky sports chaps. All sound a bit poor.
storagematt
but i dont hate him, i just think he should be used as an impact player, when he really can change a game. its no use changing a game before it has started!
pompeycarpet
Good job I've got your commentaries to read :)
UKTony
kanu needs to have someone playing alongside him to be effective - he is too old, to slow and lacks the mobilaty to be useful in our current set-up... his constant selection ahead of others is even when he is 'tired' is annoying alot of people - it looks like were trying to 'force' nuge out of the club, and by not playing him were going the right way about doing this...
pompeyrug
Who's waiting for you after the game .. Fancy a coach trip to Elegance fellas ..
Chix
i live there already mate :-)
pompeyrug
also arnie won the player of the tournament at the toualan under 20 festival not too long ago, and there were some real superstars who played in that tournament or who have won that trophy before.
jbaker
agree with you carpet - its always been my thinking that kanu should start from the bench... bugger me nuge is coming on!!!
pompeyrug
The nugget appears!
paultsmouth
commentry said they would take mvuemba off?
pompeycarpet
....mendes off...he was gettin booed...
pompeycarpet
Nugent on for Mendes... ***** me harry are we going 442 .. come on Nuge give us the chance to sing the song..David Nugents magic, He wears a magic hat And when he plays Ipswich He said well fancy that He scores with his left foot, He scores with his right, When he plays against Ipswich, He'll score all *****ing night Come on Nuge don't let us down ... you've got 45 minutes to prove you can do it.. run your heart out fella ... Oh and score a goal ..
Chix
and tottenham are now 2-1 up against reading
jbaker
nugent, nugent, nugent
jbaker
amazing start by the tractor boys i hear. keep it tight pompey
jbaker
nugent immediatly impresses...why cant we play him in the PL?
pompeycarpet
46- Replacement David Nugent comes on to replace Pedro Mendes.
PompeyGleamer
Oi ! Ipswich .. get back in your box... Kanu put us under pressure Harry.... Their tails are up ... we need a goal and soon ...
Chix
great save jamo!!!
pompeycarpet
nugent. yes one nil
jbaker
rug, could you do an article about arnie, I know you did one, but i would like to know a little more about the fella, and wikipedia aint that helpful.
PompeyGleamer
get in there nuge!!!
pompeyrug
David Nugents magic, He wears a magic hat And when he plays Ipswich He said well fancy that He scores with his left foot, He scores with his right, When he plays against Ipswich, He'll score all *****ing night
Chix
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
jbaker
so how will rug know???
pompeycarpet
nugent ALWAYS scores against Ipswich
paultsmouth
Nugget yessssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!1
eastneydave
YESSSS, NUGENT!!! LEGEND!
PompeyGleamer
david nugents magic etc...
jbaker
i'll see what i can do mate - i may reharsh an old one, failing that i will just forward you what i previously wrote mate... come on nuge, i knew he would score today...
pompeyrug
slow don fellas, he hasnt scorred for me yet..oh no, wait...THAT is why you want to run behind oposition defence!!!!
pompeycarpet
GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
UKTony
GET IN - Are you watching Harry R, are you watching, are you watching, are you watching Harry R
Chix
On the Kanu subject. The famous written contract that never changed, but was finally signed did not take into consideration any HR. verbal contracts. I think Gleamer's earlier comments bear investigation. If so poor Nugent.
007
OLDHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PompeyGleamer
...diop mucks up again...
pompeycarpet
as paultsmouth said, he always scores against ipswich. lets hope he gets a few more, and starts against sunderland, i think we are going to go 442. goal at swansea i think
jbaker
Everton 0 -1 Oldham
eastneydave
Interesting snippit ... Ipswich have not beaten opposition from a higher league for 12 years, since Paul Mason scored the only goal away to Premier League Blackburn in a third round replay on 16 January 1996, to put the Division One club from East Anglia through.... Hopefully they'll have to wait a little longer....
Chix
Still 0-0 at Swansea
eastneydave
At last, well done Nuge. Tell us what we know, play him. give a run. We play Sunderland 7 Derby next, both championship teams in the prem, play him & he'll score. Well done the Nuge.
storagematt
hey lads, how many prem teams are going out, double figures perhaps, hopefully???? WEMBLY?
PompeyGleamer
Oldham 1 up at Everton.
storagematt
okay there wasnt, my bad. cmon havant (and waterlooville)
jbaker
blueblood from vital ipswich told me about nuge always scoring against ipswich a week or more back... and he is right! well mr redknapp he has given you food for thought hasnt he...
pompeyrug
great shot kranjcar (slightly unlucky)
pompeycarpet
feed the nuge and he will score. woah woah
jbaker
Blackburn 0-2 Coventry
eastneydave
Harry might nor rate him but if he plays crap and scores I'm happy, Kanu can play average and still get a game
paultsmouth
Another Diop header over the bar. Do we have an optician at the club. Get him checked out.
storagematt
do you know what mate - ive just used that exact phrase 'feed the nuge and he will score' or words to that effect in my match report... you'll see when i add it after the game :-)
pompeyrug
everton going out, blackburn going out, reading/tottenham, west ham/man city, villa/man u, sunderland, bolton, boro are struggling. wembley all the way gleamer
jbaker
Storagematt... Stop on .. Surely with Kanu in the ACN and with our next two games being Derby & Sunderland Harry must give him a premiership start...
Chix
feed the nugget, let him know its premierleague!
PompeyGleamer
haha rug great minds think alike ;) blackburn 0-2 coventry and they have had a red card. wow
jbaker
for anyone who cant get the quay, u can get live fa cup commentary of pompey on the bbc sport website
jbaker

jbaker
lads, we dont need a striker!!! We have one, Nanannana, baby give it up, give it up, baby give it up!
PompeyGleamer
wembly here we come!!! (i hope)
pompeycarpet
Danny Haynes sounds an interesting proposition, very quick with a good shot, are you taking note Harry?
paultsmouth
sounds all Pompey now, one more and its goodnight
paultsmouth
in case anyone cared scummers are 2 up against milan
jbaker
Nugent to the bar!!
paultsmouth
...we still need another one gleamer, spurs have 4 strikers, we have 3 - and 2 over this period
pompeycarpet
Well, if were going wembley, we should all rent a minibus, and go as the vital pompey crew!!!!!
PompeyGleamer
nugents on fire! look out sunderland!
jbaker
yep he's making the difference!
pompeyrug
Come on fellas let's get another and then we can relax a little ... If the scores stay the same the 4th round draw could be interesting.. Live on Sky 13:30 on Monday... fingers crossed we'll be in it...
Chix
nuge's mobility and movement are causing problems... just imagine what might have happened if he had started?
pompeyrug
nugent first time, awquard shot - off the bar!!!
pompeycarpet
Nuge hits the bar.
storagematt
Bring on the scummers ... Bring on the scummers .... Bring on the scummers ... Bring on the scummers .... but hopefully not the HAWks .. come on the Ville get them at Westleigh (or Fratton) Park and earn yourselves some dosh...
Chix
Maybe his chance has come at last, with Kanu out of the picture for a month its now or never
paultsmouth
the top flight teams look like they are dropping like flies... if villa can do united tonight, then it opens up even more - we still need a 2nd to make sure dont we, i reckon nuge will get it...
pompeyrug
1629: "Havant and Waterloo are doing themselves proud against Swansea. These are the kind of games and results we want out of the day." BBCi Score's Gavin Peacock
PompeyGleamer
Rug - I hope so .. would that be good I could sing my song again... Actually I think I might anyway...
Chix
I think the Hawks would love Pompey at Fratton
paultsmouth
is this the one man demolition show? i swear everyother name on the commentrt is nugent!
pompeycarpet
Swansea hit the bar for the 3rd time. H&W hanging on.
storagematt
Hawks on the way out!
paultsmouth
i would be tied between the teams then, hope hawks get arsenal, get the dosh!
PompeyGleamer
Swansea 1-0 H&W first goal they have conceded in Cup this year. Great shame.
eastneydave
over the bar - AGAIN from diop.
pompeycarpet
they rode their luck about didnt they - so it looks like the hawks are going out now after finally conceding...
pompeyrug
No sooner said; Swansea score.
storagematt
Hawks one nil down with 15 minutes to go ... come on lads allout for a equaliser... Come on Pompey lets get another don't risk it .. they might snatch a late one .. then it's a replay....
Chix
nugent!!!!!!!!!!! wat a legend! : )
PompeyGleamer
spurs drawing with the team that 'dont want to do well in the cup' reading 2-2 now...
pompeyrug
So Diop is 30 yards out & yes his shot goes over the bar. More Johnny Wilkinson style.
storagematt
shame he doesnt play more often!!!!
pompeycarpet
Come on Pompey ...they are taking the game to us ... don't get bogged down .. be creative in midfield and give the ball to Nugent ... It seems that 4 in midfield isn't enough...
Chix
have senegal got a rugby team? if not they should put one together and make sure they get the ball to diop as often as they can, drop kick, penalties, conversions he will be the world-record holder in no time!
pompeyrug
1634: GOAL Tottenham 2-2 Reading Spurs keeper Paul Robinson can only Leroy Lita's low shot and Stephen Hunt is on hand to tap in. cappello must notice all these blunders, hes a gonner, david james, ENGLANDS NO.1 !
PompeyGleamer
Blackburn 0-3 Coventry
eastneydave
diop is playing awfully, and im sorry gleamer, i cant remember when kanu last touched the ball - and hreiderson is leaving us completly open. utaka is static, and... nugent sets up kanu, who fires it over...
pompeycarpet
Wigan Reserves 3 up at Sunderlad Reserves. Sunderland resting everyone so they are fit for when we turn up next Sunday.
storagematt
Nearly at 200 cmments for the match again Rug... both down to teen men at Liberty stadium .. a bloke called Tait has been sent off... brings back memories of Yozza
Chix
Huddersfield 2-1 Birmingham
eastneydave
...diop heads on target!!!!!!! ITS A FIRST!!!! shame it was strait at the keeper...
pompeycarpet
Ipswich go close. Header 6 yards out just wide. Then Kanu not to be out done by Diop lets fly from the edge of the box & it's over the bar.
storagematt
YES OK, your right, harry should of played nuge : ), and yes your right, kanu is a lazy man, who is only playing to hit that 20 game mark, and yes, i am now a fan of the nuge, and he will fire us into europe : )
PompeyGleamer
Utaka .. the torpedo... more like the ******** .. unguided missle... For christ sake Diop, Kanu and Utaka .. go to africa NOW....
Chix
Yosser Tait dirty? Whatever next Chix? How many Stellas is that then?
eastneydave
Another Diop header, 6 yards out, straight at the keeper. Why does he have to get on the end of eveything?
storagematt
...utaka misses an open goal from 2 yards out!!!! he just missed the ball!!!
pompeycarpet
Utaka misses open goal!!
eastneydave
9 at last count dave or is it 18.. not sure... seeing double and really wish this article had a spilll cheque..
Chix
H&W have a player sent off. Coventry 3-1 up at Blackburn. Huddersfield leading Brum 2-1.
storagematt
we should still be ok, but if utaka's miss costs us then he better not hurry back from africa...
pompeyrug
utaka u douchebag. cmon hawks bring one back.
jbaker
yes hawks. rocky baptiste. YES!
jbaker
Havant equalise!!!
eastneydave

pompeyrug
H&W score 1-1. Rocky Baptiste

ipswich fans sing "your not fit to referee" - and i have to agree with them, its been an awfull display!!!
pompeycarpet

Blackburn 1-4 Coventry
eastneydave
Come on Pompey.. come on the HaWks .. lets have a double celebration.... and now your'e gonna believe us .... We gonna win the cup... and Rug will say I told you so !
Chix
yep i will :-) but clearly i meant 'god bless jamo' not good a minute or two back...
pompeyrug
will anyone go to the havant replay??
jbaker
Come on your Hawks.. Scriven must be the player of the round.. may sure you all vote for him on the BBC website... If it's a replay it might even make the telly... When Exeter were on the telly they raised enough to survive and build a new stand... Come on HaWks... Come on Pompey ..
Chix
are our players afraid to attack? we had 1 player in the box just now, when we were attacking
pompeycarpet
i call that a chance for a vital pompey meeting
jbaker
if i live in the pompey area still i would have mate i reckon...
pompeyrug

The replay could be played at Fratton.. but last time that happened (against Millwall) they lost money due to the policing bill. it 's fll time HaWks have drawn ..Excellent ... oh god James is a hero.. Peter Petrelli eat your heart out
Chix
Bolton out too.
eastneydave

pompeycarpet

jbaker

paultsmouth
3 on one..! and its full time.
jbaker
Hooray close at the end to say the least!!
eastneydave
Pompey through, more than alot of other prem teams
paultsmouth
we're gonna win the cup we're gonna win the cup, e-i di adeo we're gonna win the cup .. 40/1 tosh .. what odds now...
Chix
how ***** is diop? 3v1 and he passes BACKWARDS to another ipswich player
pompeycarpet
Thru but only just. Needing some Jamo heroics near the end. Scummers in the next round then?!!!!
storagematt
Over 250 posts now - and a stat all three cup games between Pompey and Ipswich have ended 0-1!!
eastneydave
So what is the MAXIMUM number of premiership clubs in the fourth round draw .. it is 13 or 14...
Chix
saying that at least 8 prem teasm are out if u include on from each all prem tie. then the pompey odds are very low now
jbaker
Shocks all over the country so lets be thankful not at Portman Road but we all know how close it was.
eastneydave
blue army!
jbaker
in the pot for another draw, we will beat anyone next round providing we avoid the big 3
paultsmouth
can we win the cup? well...thats what we said about the carling cup...but i wouldnt rule it out now! we just need to take it seriously
pompeycarpet
In the last few seasons we have had Liverpool & Man Utd in the 4th round & of course that infamous scummers game. So hopefully we will get Mansfield at home.
storagematt
I'd love a long cup run, thats the last thing the scummers have over us
paultsmouth
And just in case you missed it earlier ...David Nugents magic, He wears a magic hat And when he plays Ipswich He said well fancy that He scores with his left foot, He scores with his right, When he plays against Ipswich, He'll score all *****ing night .. Well done Pompey not as easy as it should have been againgst ten men... now the africans go away... let's press on and get 6 points against Sunderland and Derby and push for Europe on two fronts..
Chix
Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the Bring on the scummers ...scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...Bring on the scummers ...
Chix
Chix put the beers away now mate and calm down a bit.
eastneydave
I really should stop buying the 3 for 2 offers of 24 bottles of stella from Tescos .. it means I get a supply of 72 bottles at my disposal.. Tesco on-line best website in the world .. except for vital Pompey that is.... I'm off for a curry...
Chix
Another wild night ahead in Salisbury then. 72 beers and a curry.
eastneydave
mmmmmmmmmmmmm Curry
paultsmouth
Everton go out too!!
eastneydave
what a day! couldnt really have gone much beter in terms of the FA cup!
pompeycarpet
A maximum of twelve Premier teams can make 4th round. Pompey, Wigan, Middlesbrough and Chelsea are through. Replays Spurs/Reading and Hammers/City - Villa/United playing as I type and five play tomorrow.
eastneydave
Hi guys, sorry i missed it, 270 coments, looks like a winning format Rug.
pompey4me
it does doesnt it..
pompeycarpet
What is the betting that a Prem team go out tomorrow?
eastneydave
chuffed with the way it went again today, even better than last week...
pompeyrug
how many comments is it now? maybe we should be going for a record "most posts in 2 hours"
pompeycarpet
... and Carpet get's the last word...
Chix
No he didnt chix, you did!
pompey4me
no he didnt i did :-) i couldnt say for sure but i dont think there could be many sites that have seen around 250 comments posted on one article in its lifecycle let alone in 2hrs or so... just imagine what will happen when more and more people get involved regularly, we could be pushing 500, 1000 maybe even during a game?
pompeyrug
maybe, how many people were there leaving the main comments during the game?
jbaker
and 3 prem teams have gone to replays today, two of them will be away! and newcastle still to play.
jbaker
...i think it was mostly me posting, with spots of rug, chix, glamer, jbaker, storagematt, eastneydave, and the odd pompey4me...thats 8 people...although some made smaller contibutions than others... now imagine 20 people were here!!!
pompeycarpet
exactly carpet!
pompeyrug
or, you could look at it as an improvement of 70 posts from the last match, now if we keep up that rate, we will be in the 1000s in no time! (well, about 15 games or so...so next season...)
