Pompey v Yids

Almost a year to the day, and an old face returns once more, some call him 'Jamie's dad', some call him 'floppy chops', but he shall be not be called by a name, in fact he shall be known as 'he who shall not be named' or Voldermort to us.

Time has probably mellowed most pompey fans, you can probably see the reasoning why he left now, club in debt, best players to be sold, and Uncle Draco Levy offering a bottomless pit in North London.
Still back to Fratton he comes, with Niko, Jermain, Peter, old Joe and bagman Bondie all in tow.
Now though, if we can have a repeat of the last time he sat in the away dugout, we can all go home very happy.

Vital Quotes:

The media has been all over the return of old Volders, the most tenuous links have been used to associate anyone who has an opinion the right to be interviewed, but for me, the talking should start on the pitch now, all ex-players can go up to the bar after the match and have a love-in later.

Pompey Team News:

David James is fit, Paul Hart indicated he was probably fit enough for wednesday's game, so he will stand between the posts.
O'Hara is the only enforced absentee, Spurs being his parent club denies him the opportunity to impress his 'other' manager.
Mokoena will probably step in, either that or Belhadj in a more attacking role, I'd prefer the Algerian myself.

Player to watch: Boateng

If there ever was a player with a point to prove, its the Prince, he has been highly impressive so far, and will be out to show his worth once more.

Pompey ex-pats Team News:

Palacios looks the most likely to dip out, he only returns tomorrow morning form South America.
Defoe may be on the bench as he nurses his bust hand, while Crouch and Keane get another chance to show they are a pairing up front.
King and Woodgate are both fit to return, giving awelcome boost to defensive options.

Player to watch: Kranjcar

I reckon he may get more stick than the others, although Defoe deserves the most.

let's hope you turn them over big time!

I hope so Merlin, I hope so. By he by, Voldemort already has a welcome message in pink Graffitti on the Milton House wall. It says "Rdknapp Scum". Could have been a bit more original and imaginative I suppose.

Not entirely comfatable with the section title " Pompey versus Yids" Paul. Secant have a go at spurs for being racist then run derogatory titles; we do have some Jewish people on the site. I will take a point but if we could get 3 that would be just brilliant
russellm
russ, spurs fans - on the whole - have no issue with the yid reference, several have told us as much in the past 7-days. its just the PC world gone made as always. knowing paul, as i do, i know for a fact this is not said with any malice.
as for the game, 2-1 pompey win - i would love another 4-1 upon volders return but 2-1 is what i forsee :-) altho i often forsee a win...
pompeyrug
enjoy the game guys, this will be my last post until sunday i reckon - early start travelling saturday and later night getting home, here is to 3pts, hopefully...
pompeyrug
I'll be interested to hear the electric atmosphere tomorrow, I shall be there, and I want to know how the majority will respond to R*******, personally, I think we should give him some grief and wind him up, but got to get behind the Blues, and wait for the Prince (Boateng) to work his magic
Pompey_7
I have 40 on Pompy at 10/3. Tis your cup final afterall
HuddersfieldYiddo
pompyrug i agree totally with the "yids" position. russellm please put down the guardian and lighten up.
HuddersfieldYiddo
Whatever grievance we have with FLOPPYCHOPS is absolutley nothing to do with Tottenham, so why are we chewing the cud with them? Please tell me - cos I want to know? (Its taken me five minutes to type this - but I find that after a bottle of wine and five glasses of champagne everything becoms clear - don't you?)
gandor1
lol we can see why you are struggling now, idiot's ranting on like a mad men?? Wot a load of tosh yes harry left you for a bigger and better club.......atleast you got some money for him. So get over it, he left you in a good position in the league at the time and came to a struggling side for a challenge and yes the money too. So wot if he has bought loads of your best players,thats because he rates them and its the reason he signed them for you lot in the first place!! money talks my friend something we have planty of and something you have not!!
WestStandEnclosure
The article was done with tounge in cheek WestStander, although you are coming across very much "we are considerably richer than you" , if you read it, you will learn that we understand why he left, most people would have walked if everything they had built was to be demolished, Spurs bigger,Yes, better no.
paultsmouth
WestStandEnclosure - You are totally right. However, didn't sol campbell leave to go to a bigger, better club? and have you ever forgiven HIM?
pompeycarpet
will u guys still be booing redknapp at 80mins when ur 0-4 down .lol only joking im anticipating a very tuff test. im really looking forward to this one, prob cos i ant seen spurs play for 2weeks and im clucking but should be a special atmosphere. COYS pup
pachna_spurs
Of COURSE we will still be booing Wobblers if we are 4-0 down, that would be the obvious thing to do. If we are 4-0 up we will be a) probably on drugs and therefore hallucinating that we are 4-0 up and b) will be singing the great old traditional Pompey song "Who the **** is H***y R******p"
hammersmithblue
Pompeycarpet, yes Sol left us for a . . . well, another club. But we got NOTHING, zero, zilch for him whereas, had he just admitted that his future was elsewhere we could've got at least 5m (which was loads back then for a CD) & probably a lot more. Harry took you as far as he could & he left you for Spurs, not Southampton (well, not this time, lol). The very fact that Pompey are where they are & Spurs are now where we are shows that he made the right decision & you guys did pretty well out of his move. We all know ow that you needed money & Harry got you a fair old wedge by upping sticks when he did. Sol, I repeat, left us for our arch enemies for absolutely nothing, despite being our captain & our best player
basskadet
I don't remember us getting anything when jamies dad left us for southampton. The fact that we might have got something the second time doesn't really matter to me. He was in my opinion one of the best managers in the league - it's easy to do what fergie does with a good group of players (and a massive scouting network), however to do what sandras husband did at pompey seemed down right incredible. he was leagues better than the next best! And when good managers are harder to come by than a good centre forward, to have the best of the best, who was tied down on a long term contract (to say nothing of his personal pledges to the club), taken from you for 5 million. that's worse than him leaving for free. it's just insulting.
pompeycarpet
just to put it into context - we paid 4-5 million for Boeting. If Boeting has anything like the impact at pompey as our ex manager had, we'll be selling him for 30++million.
pompeycarpet
and (I think i might have mentioned this before) - he'd already done what sol campbell did to you. he then came back to us, and presented us with more lies about how it was a mistake, and he would never leave again. The spurs move opened up old wounds, as well as creating new ones. We have your sol campbell motives, and we also have more!
pompeycarpet
Game over, another loss and you are still bottom of the table, we came, you tried we conquered end of really, we have Harry and you have relegation to contend with see ya.
TeddyLyon
Ha ha cheers Teddy. It was a good game - we looked lively in the second half but funnily enough the sending off did you the world of good. It's a shame that we have to look at an away game for our next points but I'm positive if we keep at it we'll be fine.
stillthewhizz
DINDANE!!!!!!!!! Only messing - Great effort today lads i thought you deserved at least a point. Defoe nearly gifted it to you aswell. The prem would be a lesser place without you and i hope you survive. To be honest i think there are 3 worse team than you, Hull are ***** and Wolves and Birmingham arent great - plus West Ham who are in turmoil. You just need a run of wins, fast because at the moment your one foot out of the prem door. Good luck and no hard feelings (despite many of yours towards us)
HuddersfieldYiddo
Thought a draw would have been a fair result.
Thaibluefan
I thought you guys played well second half. But i guess that is the difference between having a strike force of Keane, Defoe, Crouch and pavlyuchenco and having one of Dindane and piquine(or whatever his name is). You guys are creating chances but you have to take them.I think on the basis of performances till now, you have a decent shot at surviving as there are 3 worse teams. But you have to buy a decent striker in january , maybe a striker who can put the ball in a empty net from 6 yards?
