Ol'Potless vs. Stoke

Fratton

20/2/10

17:30

On Sky

Back to the day job(facing Stoke, not the taxman)

Pompey entertain Stoke tomorrow, the same Stoke who are unbeaten in 9 and should of beaten Man City in the week.
We of course had a lift on the field last week by stuffing our neighbours, but as usual the wind was slashed from our sails with the usual off-field crap.

Vital Quotes:

There is talk of another prospective buyer in the midst, nothing concrete of course, just enough to give us a sliver of hope, what we do need though is a points maximum for the first time since 19th of December when we flattened Liverpool, if not that chasm at the bottom of the table may as well be filled with mines and crocodiles for the good ship Pompey to negotiate also.

Avram has tried to beat the drum, but even he has acknowledged that every decent result is followed by negative news, mostly financial of course, and Pompey's cancer of the financial department is spreading to the vital organs now.

Ol'Potless Team News:

Boateng is out once more, he has fired a broadside at Pompey's medics for his misdiagnosis of ligament damage, sorry Prince we can only afford Doogie Howser right now.
Finnan should be fit after groin trouble, Tosic may make a debut with Ben Haim still struggling, especially if Hermann is ruled out with a slight knock as well.
Rocha is clear to play again after his 10 minute debut in our last league encounter, while Vanden Borre is still struggling with his hamstring.
Quincy may of forced his way into the starting line up, but will probably be happy to contend from the bench once more.

Player to watch: Dindane

Never grabbed the headlines last week with a good finish, but strikers thrive on goals and has cored in his last two.

Stoke Team News:

Higginarse is doubtful after having a spasm in his back, while Faye is banned after a red against City, Etherington looks long term.

Player to watch: Fuller

He was crap when he wore blue, but seems to like playing against us, got the winner at the Brit when we had dominated until he scored out of the blue.

Match Facts & Stats

Pompey have won the last 5 at Fratton against the Potter boys, 6 has a nice ring to it.

Ref Watch:

Jimmy Osmond (Liverpool)

Match Prediction:

May be our last match at Fratton, will we go out with a bang or whimper, your guess goes here.

Next Fixtures:

Burnley at Turf Moor

We the fans must go out with a BIG bang as we have no control over things. Like the new picture of the Park from outside.

Agree Dave .. Despite our differing views WE (the fans) are the one constant that holds the club together .. Lets raise the roof !

Mr Gee can't come tomorrow - again - and so I am going to persuade my friend Sylvia to come with me. So we will win. I know - Its all very technical and strategical and most of you won't understand it - but trust me.

Will the ref bring his brothers and give us a song to cheer us up?
blueexile
yep, if we are going lets go with a bang! its a quality picture isnt it - as soon as i saw it i thought, yep we will have some of that!
i will admit i am feeling pretty emotional today, i do not like having the thoughts that this 'could' be the last game at home, but am struggling more and more to think this is not going to be the case - what i do know is i am up for it and REALLY plan to enjoy it!

russellm
Where the ***** our luck?!When Stoke scored second goal i feel like someone smash my face...PUP!
Stanley (Moscow)
what a load of crap !!! we got relegated the moment we sold kaboul..... our defence is the worst in the leauge wilson is crap he is too small to be a centre half...
pompeyhussler
Yes Stanley, a truly horrible sinking feeling
rugsmum
Stanley....if it's any consolation, I feel like I've been kicked in the balls.....
cornypomp
Next step will be administration & the 9 point deduction & hope for a buyer or its the nightmare scenario.
storagematt
Utterly hopeless from the first kick off. Can you blame Hart & Grant? No they both had their hands tied behind their backs. Can't we just go and hide until next season, where we start again in the Championship, with new owners and a bright, young, new team? Dream onů
