8pts expected from the next 6 games

8pts expected from the next 6 games

Pompey will do 'quite well' and pick up 8pts from the next 6 games! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeycarpet's poll are thoughts that I would disagree with... to a degree.

With the options available maybe I can understand why 8pts was voted, as 13pts would mean wins against Sunderland - twice, Derby and Bolton as well as something against either United or Chelsea.

12pts is the minimum that I think we should be aiming for and I would be happy with this, although I still feel we can cause a surprise against United or Chelsea to be honest...

What the poll asked - Which of the 4 African players who are leaving will we miss the most?

How you voted - Do quite well (8pts) 59%, Win most of them (13pts) 22%, Do badly (3pts) 9%, Disaster (0pts) 7%, Win them all (18pts) 3%

Current Poll - It is off to Sunderland that weekend, can we keep our impressive away form going?

What will we do against Sunderland on Sunday, can we maintain the way form and win again, or will it be a draw or defeat - this is what pompeyrug wants to know with this - 'Sunderland v Pompey?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

sorry - my fault about the lack of options - although i have tried to keep them the same all season - so i can compare to see how well we thought we would do over the whole seaoson, come the end of it - thus keeping it a fair test. with the games cming up, 12 points is reasnable - 8 points is very few.

Let's face it 8 pts will mean we can't be relegated...more will mean we are still aiming for Europe. United, as always will definitely be a loss, as for Chelsea, a draw would be a fine thing. I see 3 wins so 10 pts for mine...

the toon thing may have lowered expectations - if harry had left, 8 points might have seemed like a big ask?

8 pts from the next 6 seems reasonable.... Draw @ Sunderland, Beat Derby, Lose to Manure & Chelsea , Draw @ Bolton, Beat Sunderland at home.. 8 should be the minimum I think but I couldn't see us winning them all so that got my vote..

I think win 2, lose 2 & draw 2 is the worst case scenario.

although i thought 12 i think we were voting their feelings, Harry clearly unsettled (we now know why) a welcome mat at fortress fratton, opponent keepers all apparently playing out of their skin... except they weren't. In order of games and bearing in mind there is no Anelka at BWFC what i think is feasible is; win, win, loss, loss, win, win. But i have a sneakey feeling we will draw against CFC or ManU and maybe as chix says draw against the Cats tomorrow. however i would take 12 now if offered

Yeah me too Russ - Merlin have you seen our fixtures ? - If you think it's a strange result you must think think that pompey are gonna beat Chelsea .. that was the option above the one chosen.. maybe you have more confidence in our team than you do your own ;)
