Pompey talk with PFCMatt

Pompey talk with PFCMatt
Vital Pompey has previously brought you the 'knowing me knowing you series' - which is still running, so others will be added and if you want to do one just email - and we had the 'talking Pompey with' series last summer, this now returns under a new name and some fresh questions as 'Pompey talk with'...

PFCMatt was asked 6 questions about the 2008/09 season and what the hopes are for the 2009/10, one and indeed our future, is.

This is what they said...

  • So, sum up the 2008/09 season in 3 words?
    A huge disappointment. I'm still not completely over it if I'm honest.

  • Suddenly things seem 'a lot brighter' for Pompey with Dr SAF taking over - what are your hopes/aspirations under the new ownership? Assuming everything goes through!
    If everything goes through then happy days are here again! Nah, I'm a Pompey fan which means I'm always racked with little doubts and have learnt to embrace disappointment. I'm fairly sick of saying this but I would like to see some sign of building work at the site of the proposed new training ground. The out-of-contract players futures sorted out. Some quality additions made to the squad, that'll do for a start.

  • Which players - that we could realistically sign - would you like to see arrive this summer?
    If I'm honest I haven't even thought that far ahead, but if the takeover goes ahead I can see most of the new players coming in from abroad. Injuries and wages aside, Michael Owen could be worth a punt.

  • If you had to select 1 player to 'sell' or 'release' this summer who would it be and why?
    Utaka without a shadow of a doubt, obvious I know. Paid 7-8m for someone who's had 2 good games for us in 2 years, that says it all really.

  • What are you hoping for from Pompey in the 2009/10 season?
    I'd settle for a season of no drama please, it would be nice to be safe by Xmas, anything else would be a bonus really.

  • How many Pompey games do you expect to make during that season?
    I'll be at all the home games and I would like to go to more away games next season, I'd like to go somewhere like Anfield a ground I've never been to before.

    Thanks to PFCMatt for answering these.

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    Good one Matt. I like your answer to hopes for the 2009/10 season. I'll agree to disagree on Utaka though. I find it interesting that you think Michael Owen could be worth a punt. I don't know quite what to think about Owen. Apart from his injuries, he just aint the player he was. Having said that, many a player has had a new lease of life when they've come to Pompey, so maybe it could work for him?

    If you have never been to Anfield Matt then I would recommend it. I agree Michael Owen would be worth a shot too.

    Owen and Crouch would be good. I live 45 mins from Anfield and tbh everytime ive seen us there the atmosphere has been crap apart from the away fans :)

    Pompey win and lose collectively

    As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.

    Away day Blues

    We can be brilliant one game and then woeful the next...usually after we've won (usually pretty well) at home but then we lose away, as we did at Blackpool.
