England let us down, but Sol was one of few to come out of it with any credit, can Pompey lift the blues?
Sol is the only slight doubt after his England exploits, Redknapp has admitted the big man aches all over after the plastic farce, but as Lee Dixon pointed out more than once, Campbell loves a massage and will no doubt be looking for Chris Neville (Pompey masseur) to knead him back to rude health.
Pompey will be roared on by three and a half thousand fans, tempted not only by Sacha's genorosity with the travel, but by our resurgent away form.
Wigan have the same worries over their international stars as us, Valencia has flown back from Brazil, Siberski has had a dodgy baconstring Melchiot and Koumas have had thigh and hip knocks.
Sean Davis' bosom buddy Michael Brown will be hoping to resume his light-hearted leg-break attempts with his big mate.
Has had another pop at proving he his premiership quality, his time at West Brom was a mixed one, he has undoubted ability but is cursed with being Welsh.
Sol is the only slight doubt, but otherwise its as you were, Tony Adams' Dutch formation is working a treat so far, Davis is shining brightly, and Niko Kranjcar is benefiting from a run in the side, and really showing his quality.
In the most prolific form of his Pompey career, okay that wasn't hard after his Ethiopian style droughts, but he is getting that little bit of luck now that confidence seems to bring with it.
Last season was a low point for Pompey at the JJB, a defeat was well deserved after we arrived with high hopes, the season before however has happier memories attached to it, for Pompey fans and Benjani in particular.

Will the break have been a chance to recharge batteries, or a chance for the wind to drop from our sails? Place your bets here.
