Pompey

Estadio D. Afonso Henriques

Referee:

Pompey overcame a nervy first half to blast through to the group stages of the UEFA cup. To be frank we were worse than awful first half, Guimaraes wipee the lead ou within half an hour and things looked grim, danger man Douglas scored the first, and Alves scored a long range daisy cutter for the second.

Half time couldn't come quick enough, 3-5-2 was more like 8-2 most of the half, Pompey were playing deeper than the squid like to roam. Harry obviously righted a few wrongs in the break, as we came out with the same team, but now Traore and Johnson were bombing forward at every opportunity, for all our possesion though Nilsson was not really seriously tested.

Extra-time was when it all came good, or rather the little break before it started, the cameras panned round and every Guimaraes player looked out on his feet, Pompey went for the throat.
The glory went to our one to watch from the preview, Crouch first scored a trademark nod in from a great Johnson cross, and then buried a beauty after a fantastic run by Belhadj.

Job done.

Star Player

Crouch, scored 2 and played generally well, even first half when we were crap.

9 and a half years ago i missed several games after a heart attack, halftime tomight thought i might be watching my last ever as another H.A seemed on the cards. Thank you Peter Crouch hopefully the doubters will leave you alone now, i never doubted you for a minute! Just wish Harry had played the same 11 in the first half as he did in the 2nd. Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss Pompeys European invasion continues.

You guys don't know how lucky you are. If Peter Crouch was playing for Manchester City right now he would be a god. We would have bought him if we had the money in time. You got him... but expect us to come back for him some time soon.

seriously we werent very good at all! im so relieved. their first goal was such a handball! second goal was a fluke. our first was lucky cos of bad defending, and for the second belhadj did amazing - wasnt exactly a bad finish though!lets hope that the extra 30 mins doesnt effect us too much vs stoke. anyone know why utaka didnt make the bench? he passed a fitness test and was originally named in the starting line-up!

absolutely chuffed, I woke up at 6 this morning Bangkok time, and the game was still in extra time, got on the bbc website just in time for the text to go in saying that Crouchie had scored. What a great result and the result is all that matters.

Great result in the end, although think Harry's tactics/formation were way off the mark in the first half.
