The Ghost of Quashie

The Ghost of Quashie
From setanta sports - link - the top 3 players this season with the most attempts on goal but yet to score.

Player - Team - Total Shots Attempted
Diop - Portsmouth - 33
Pedersen - Blackburn Rovers - 32
O'Neil - Middlesbrough - 27

No real surprise Diop is there as is the player he replaced, Gary O'Neil.

i thought things were bad for quashie - i mean papa smurf but not that bad... just imagine if o'neil and papa had played in the same team! i think most of us would have torn our hair out by now... seing pedersen in at no.2 surprised me tbh.

'Ghost' written by me. Yes I know when HR said he replaced GON with Diop, I didn't realise it was for his ability to misfire in front of goal!!!

don't you think it's more endemic of the team they play for rather than the players concerned? I'd argue that Diop and O'Neil both filled a striking vacuum at Pompey hence the attempts, so too GON at Boro - Pedersen now that is a surprise, I would have liked to see him play for us.... but not till we sell Diop eh?

Totally unrelated but JB from MCFC V here. To answer pompey4me's question re the chant for Benjani, it was bellowed out when he was subbed towards the end of the Derby, same as your "Benjani Wo-oh" chant but with the added line "He signed on Deadline Day, He scored on Derby day!" Great start for the lad who had already endeared himself to City fans with his polite interviews before taking up that great positioning for Petrov's cross. Best lone striker performance for City this season. Terrific work rate. Sven's not daft.

jbaker, I thought I'd heard something to that effect. He has great energy and has scored some crackers in the past...

Pompey at Crawley called off

Pompey WILL NOT climb into the top 3 this weekend - whatever Carlisle do - as the game at Crawley has been called off.

Lalkovic heads to Ross County

In a somewhat odd move - admittedly he's not been involved that much - Pompey's former Chelsea & Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic has joined Ross County on loan.

On this day in history...21st January

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 21st January.

Crawley in doubt

Pompey have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places - if we beat Crawley and Carlisle fail to win - but the elements might rob us of this possibility?
