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

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!

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...

Campbell - not done much wrong - or right really - same for distin - but ipswich have had the better of the chances i saw.

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?

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...)
