The headline maybe one we hope to see within the next couple of years for real, but Milan Mandaric wanders back into the lives of Pompey tomorrow afternoon with nothing but our heartfelt good wishes.
Lua has been told to keep up the good work so far by HR, a good pre-season needs to lead to a good season, after one wasted year at Fratton.
'He's got to play this year, he hasn't played for two years, we are looking for a big year from him' these were Redknapp's words after his match winning game at Dean Court, and we all know WHAT he can do, but quite often its been a case of WHEN
DJ Campbell should head the front line with old Pompey adversary Geoff Horsfield, Stephen Clemence will add some class to midfield, while Kishishev will be looking to bounce back up to the Premiership as soon as possible with his new club.
I have never forgotten his brace for West Brom a couple of years back against a lacklustre Alain Perrin side, the term 'warhorse' is often bandied about, but Horsfield fits the bill on this one.
Nugent has poked a couple in now, his confidence will hopefully soar, Lua is performing like the Lua we want to see, the defence looks sound and Jamo imposing, the pre-season defeats to Dorchester look long gone.
Davis and Hughes are still out, and Utaka is uncertain after getting crocked by a Pompey loanee!
A man looking like he has a point to prove, good news for Pompey, bad news for anyone who gets him on one of his unplayable days rarely seen for the last 18 months.
A return to form? We can certainly hope so, Lua on his day is as good as he thinks he is, the slouching fed-up Lua we have seen more of as of late can be laid to rest.
The foxes are a bogey side to some degree, 7-0 back in the 20's remains our worst hammering, and recent defeats on waterlogged pitches stick in the throat.
Vic Copper-Smith Heaven
Pompey win? Why not, we have had a great warm up campaign and won't to see it fall apart at the last hurdle.
Derby away (The real stuff!)
