Pompey welcome Villa to Fratton tomorrow, in what might have been a Euro play-off.
The thing is with this season, the Euro places won't be going down to 7th place, to qualify in the league this year you will need to come 5th at worst.
I'll promise not to hark on about the cup, but it really does look our best chance of Europe.
Villa have been in fine form since December, in fact since Pompey won on their patch, Muntari did did the damage that day with 2 long range screamers.
No new injury worries for Pompey, Mendes may make way for the return of Diarra, but he could oust Diop, who to be fair looked a little jaded himself second-half.
Kanu may have said that he is no super sub, but I see him as just that, and if Baros gets dropped after his midweek showing, their will be more than a few raised eyebrows.
Campbell is the only slight doubt with a knee knock, but should make the 11.
After 7 blanks, who better to break your duck against? Every player likes to score against their old club, Mr.Baros over to you Sir.
Villa slipped up a bit midweek, both managers admitted it didn't look like a penalty, but Barry wasn't as forgiving from the spot. Big John Carew has been finding the net in spurts all season, so hopefully it will be one of the barren gaps at Fratton. Handsome Harewood will be hoping to start after his half-time arrival midweek.
Ashley Young settled straight into Premiership football with Watford and has taken greater strides after surfacing at Villa last January, now an England squad regular he has pace and skill to hurt opposing defenders.
3-1 it was at Villa, Pompey never actually played that well, but Muntari had his shooting boots on. that day and made all the difference
Place a well educated guess on the forum here.
Away to Defoes old mates at White Hart lane next week.
