Pompey talk with powered_by_pies
powered_by_pies 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...
A chuffing nightmare! Completely not what I expected - I think the first major sign the club would fall into trouble was the departure of Frank's uncle - from then on I knew we'd have a fight on our hands.
Stability is the buzz-word for this one - start the evolution gradually, training ground, work on the new stadium, some decent players coming in to bolster the squad, and build from there. I think we can use Citeh as an example of what we'll expect to see. We'll essentially be a couple of years behind them.
Messi, Ronaldo, Tevez, Kaka - oh, REALISTICALLY sign (lol)! I'm not sure who we could go for, and who's available, but ideally, players who want to put in a good shift - not for the money, but for the shirt. If there are players out there who have a desire to 'make it big', then perhaps they'll start seeing the opportunity to play for us as a chance to become part of something big.
Taxi for Utaka! Actually, in all realism, I'd sell Davis. He seems to be um-ing and ah-ing a lot over his contract, which is an indication to me that he may not be 'playing for the shirt' as much as we first thought.
10th-12th finish and I'll be happy, any higher and I'll be chuffed. I'd like to see a high-scoring game as well, something like the 7-4 match we saw last season against Reading. I'd also love to see us take apart one of the big 4 - it won't happen, but I'd be pleased as punch if it did!
As many as possible - I won't be exiled in Bournemouth next year due to being on work placement (hopefully!) and living at home, with the added bonus of having weekends off - I've been given a match ticket of my choice as a birthday present by my mate, and I fully expect to utilise that to go and see us take apart the Spuds at Fratton Park!
