Pompey come to their ultimate game at the end of their annus horriblus, good old Arsenal face us, a team we have yet to beat in the Premiership, and also a team pushing hard for a title shot.
All the build up to the match has centred around the usual financial constraits surrounding our terminally club. This week sees news claiming players won't be paid once more, the departure of James/Begovic/Belhadj/Kaboul and Dindane, with an embargo still in place, Paul Groves may have to lace up!!
Avram Grant has spoken of his desire for Pompey to 'get nasty', we have the players to do this in Brown of course, but what he really wants is a dogs of war mentally throughout the side I think.
O'Hara is a big blow, his 5th card of the season rules him out, luckily Yebda is around for one more game before his African adventure, he, along with Belhadj and Kanu should be up for selection, while Begovic remains in goal in place of the, ahem, 'injured' David James.
Buster could only play a cameo against West Ham, his arrival certainly lifted the side at half-time, he came closest to scoring and the energy levels soared.
Arsenal have major doubts over top man Fabregas, he scored twice aginst Villa in a half hour cameo.
Denilson is also a doubt, bur Rosicky may return.
Nicklas Bendtner (groin), Gael Clichy (back), Kieran Gibbs (foot), Robin van Persie (ankle) and Johan Djourou (knee) remain sidelined.
The Ukrainian takes on mantle as top man for this one, with van Persie and Fabregas the onus will be on the man who tore Pompey apart last season.
The closest we have come against arsenal was a disallowed Kranjcar goal on the last day of the season a couple of years back, Matt Taylor scored twice in December 2006 as we took a half time lead, otherwise besides a few notable acceptions we lose, in fact we haven't registered a win since 1958!
Feeling optimistic? stick a prediction here.
