Cherries v Pompey

Bournemouth
vs.
Pompey

Dean Court

31/7/07

19:30

Harry Redknapp takes his so far 100% Pompey to more familiar surroundings tonight, almost his back garden in fact!

Vital Quotes:

Kevin Bond has used his Pompey connections to secure a friendly at Dean Court and there will be a host of familiar faces for the Pompey boys.

Darren Anderton now dwells back on the south coast, as do Shaun Cooper and Russell Perret, and also Pompey loanee Jason Pearce.

Bournemouth Team News:

Egyptian trialist Shehata will further press his claims for a contract,as will Millwall striker Hubertz.

Player to watch: Anderton

Who else? Shaggy has a place in Pompey hearts after one blinding season back in 91/92 culminating in the semi-final defeat to Liverpool, and you can be sure he will be well up for this one.

Pompey Team News:

Sean Davis is still a likely absentee, but Linvoy will hoping to take his fitness levels up with a run-out and to celebrate his new deal.

Nugent will be hoping to break his duck against more familiar opposition and to hopefully get the first of many in a blue shirt.

Player to watch: Kranjcar

One of the stars of pre-season so far, and although he hit the winning penalty in the Asia cup will no doubt be gutted not to have played a greater part.
Maybe this is the match to experiment with 3-5-2 Harry?

Match Facts & Stats

Not much recent history lately, but a regular feature less than 10 years ago.

Would expect to see a four or five goal rout given the Cherries current squad!

hatrick hero LuaLua...looks like a turn around for him, and maybe this really could be his season to shine...on the other hand, now hes started performing well, we could see him, before he turns grumpy again :) sounds like krunchie got a good goal, and mvuemba also seemed to play well. James and ashdown still unbeaton, although its a shame we had to give away a needless penalty...there goes our pre-sesason clean sheet record...

What an awful first half, changes at half time made a huge difference, we looked like a team and the scoreline shows it. Worryingly Nugent looked awful, really dosen't read our play at all; Hope this was a one off, but as soon as Lua and Benji came on the game up front lit up. Kcunchie, Pedro, Benji and Lua make a formidable attacking force.
