Look who's coming back...

Look who's coming back...

...And just in time to face us!

Former Pompey winger Lauren Robert looks as if he will be back playing in the premier league, and his return - which should be confirmed this week - will come just in time for him to face us when Derby come to town later this month...

The Frenchman - and free agent - had been heavily 'linked' with our FA cup 3rd round opponents Ipswich, but after training with Derby last week he impressed and now looks set to sign for them until the end of the season, and could get a 'frosty reception' when they come to Fratton Park on the 19th.

To be honest I was delighted when we managed to sign Robert on loan when we did, and although he showed some of his magic and scored at least one cracking free kick that I can recall I was glad when he left, as his attitude sucked and he summed up the kind of mood that was being shown on the whole during our struggles in the 2005/06 season.

After throwing one 'strop' too many Harry Redknapp soon showed him the door upon his return as our boss.

I think he's one of those players that doesn't lack talent but is very lacking where it comes to attitude. Bit like Andy Cole. Still Derby are pretty desparate aren't they?

One of the worst players I've ever seen in a Pompey shirt. I hope we give him a bad reception, the moaning little pr*ck. The useless good for nothing w*nk*r.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
