Pompey vs. Everton




Pompey v Toffees

Another away win and Pompey return to Fratton hoping to break a run of 3 blanks

Vital Quotes:

All pre-match talk has been for the wrong reasons as far as Pompey are concerned, in a week where Harry Redknapp was being widely touted for the vacant England post, his subsequent arrest on Wednesday overshadowed events somewhat.
How the fuss all week will effect Pompey on the pitch only time will tell, galvanise or destablise?

One thing is guaranteed tomorrow though, the pitch will be soaking!

Pompey Team News:

Kanu returns to the fold after damaging a hamstring against Man city last home match, otherwise it appears to be more of the same, John Utaka seems to be the only player whose place may be under threat, his performances since Newcastle have been average, but with all others performing highly, he may be in for a spot of bench warming.

Player to watch: Utaka

Needs a big performance to justify his continuing place in the team, he has the pace, he has the talent, will it float to the fore on the Fratton park pond?

Everton Team News:

Alan Stubbs is the only definite absentee, all others are floating on a 7 goal thrashing of Sunderland last week, not many teams hit 7 in a match, but tomorrow there will be 2!

Player to watch: Yakubu

I was going to go for Tim Cahill for his current form, but Yak has started firing after a sticky start, and we all know he scores in bursts and seems to be in a purple patch.

Match Facts & Stats

Last season will always be remembered for the 60 yard second best goal of last season from Matt Taylor, but until then it was a fixture which Everton relished.

Ref Watch:

Mark Clattenburg

Match Prediction:

Both teams have hit 7 a piece so far this season, so 0-0 anyone? Predictions here.

russ, theres a new spin on it now, HR calls it 4-3-3, but we all know it's just 4-5-1 in disguise!

it still winds me up now thinking that matty taylor's goal didn't win goal of the season, let alone goal of the month... lets hope he gets some game time tomorrow and can score another cracker - just when i finally took him out of my fantasy football team too... 4-5-1, 4-3-3, whatever it is i hope we see 4-4-2 its the way to go for home games, away game play whatever it is we play, at home go with 2 up top...

Cautiousmatt says 1-1. Let's hope the bl00dy weather dosn't spoil the game. My heart says a home win though.

I didn't realise I was in the minority by liking 4-3-3. Maybe it needs a tweek at home but basically I think it's good for the players Pompey have got esp. Nico.

Dry day so far, hope a boggy pitch won't ruin our quick passing game

Yep would be nice to see a goal at home it's been awhile... but I suppose I'd settle for another 0-0 rather than a 2-3 defeat... That said if we can hit them early it'll open the game right up and then who knows what will happen, but the longer it takes us to score the more Everton will play for the point and try to shut up shop. - All that said I reckon will win 2-1

i was sure that this wouldnt end 0-0, but i probably had this feeling it would really... i will say now, there is absolutely no way that we will draw 0-0 with spurs - there defence isnt good enough, or organised enough to keep us out...
