Pompey talk with powered_by_pies

Pompey talk with powered_by_pies
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'...

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...

  • So, sum up the 2008/09 season in 3 words?
    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.

  • 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!
    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.

  • Which players - that we could realistically sign - would you like to see arrive this summer?
    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.

  • If you had to select 1 player to 'sell' or 'release' this summer who would it be and why?
    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.

  • What are you hoping for from Pompey in the 2009/10 season?
    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!

  • How many Pompey games do you expect to make during that season?
    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!

    Thanks to powered_by_pies for answering these.

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    Play up Pies... So don't you think signing Messi, Ronaldo, Tevez, Kaka is realistic? Not now maybe, but in a few years who knows. I'll go with your mid-table finish though. I'd be happy with that, any higher would be a bonus while we are still settling under new management and building...(stabilising)

    nice one pies, players playing for the shirt is all i ever ask, and want - sadly too often in recent years we have seen more and more still not doing this...

    Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

    Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

    A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
