Pompey v Yids

Pompey ex-pats




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.

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

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...

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

17/10/2009 00:28:00
pompyrug i agree totally with the "yids" position. russellm please put down the guardian and lighten up.

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?)

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!!
