Pompey prepare to commence battle once more after the international cease-fire, Ipswich are in their sights and after an indifferent season last term are early front runners this.
The transfer window has closed and unlike previous years where we bought in the likes of Jermain Defoe, Mendes and Davis, this time we are more than grateful to have bought in the likes of Kitson and Lawrence and re-signed Kanu and Rocha, 3 are available tomorrow while one is still in limbo.
The Lawrence affair is dragging on unbelievably slowly, where other transfers seem to fly through, poor old Lawrence has first found himself a loanee, and now he is still awaiting registration, for all you conspiracy theorists out there, the current acting FA chairman is David Sheepshanks, latterly the chairman of Ipswich, I'm saying no more!
Pompey are obviously bolstered by Kanu, Rocha and Kitson, this has at least given competition for places, Lawrence has until noon tomorrow to become registered otherwise he will wait another week for his debut, we can also bring another loanee by that time also, so our staring 11 is not set in stone.
Pompey have no injury concerns going into the game and the break may well have given spirits and confidence levels a boost.
For those who have forgotten, when Nugent plays Ipswich, Nugent scores!
Ipswich can go top if they get the result they crave, but Roy Keane has a few injury concerns, Irish duo O'Connor and O'Dea both got injured while on International duty while Mark kennedy was already crocked prior, this leaves a berth at left-back that needs to be filled.
Townsend is still suspended while Civelli has only just hit the comeback trail with Delaney.
The midfield man has a goal a game start to the season, spot the threat there then!
We never met until Pompey dropped out of the top flight in 1959, since then though Ipswich have 17 wins to our 10, the last two meetings have been 1-0 wins to Pompey, both coming in the Fa cup.
Is it time for Pompey to break their duck? Or is it stuck in the rut time, place your bets here.
Palace on tuesday night
