Referee:

Pompey shot themselves in the foot once more, Saturday went down to bad luck, but this time we gave a penalty away in injury time to commit hari-kari.

David James sporting hair and 'tache to do Shaft proud, charged out and flattened Larsson to concede a penalty which McFadden duly dispatched.

Vanden Borre made his debut and after all the hype was a real let down, we will have to hope it was nerves, if not we should get his passport straight back out now.

Lee Probert was the referee on the night and could be said to of been a bit of a 'homer' both teams were awful, but Pompey got 5 booked on the night of few bad tackles while Brum got of scot free, the penalty itself has been described by Mark Mudie as one you get at home, but never as the away side, but enough about that prat, and Pompey can once again look at missed chances.

The game itself had few highlights, Pompey had a couple of chances in the second period, notably Mullins who just seemed shocked that the ball reached him and duly did nothing with it, Kranjcar wasted a couple of free-kicks again and also missed a good chance after the penalty when shooting weakly at Hart.

Pompey have it all to do this season, we have been cast as relegation certanties and are now doing our level best to live up to the billing.

Mr.Storrie you have seen first hand what needs to be done, 2 games against average sides, no points, rampant Arsenal are next, time for talks has passed, someone needs to sort the mess out NOW.

im glad we have played so poor and started so bad because transfer windows still open and the owners now know pompey need quality to stay up.. they need to SHOW US THE MONEY !! if we spend 20million on players and go down we sell them players for about 20million .. if we buy no players and go down we are in the same position.. WHY HAVE AN OWNER WHO DOES INVEST .,

Gutted after tonight's performance, we need to perform against Man City in 11 days, and hopefully by then our team will look a little bit more reassuring.
