Breaking the Golden duck

Breaking the Golden duck
As the Clarets have fallen into defeat against a Pompey side that for once this season did not play exceptionally well, Portsmouth secured the first points against a team who wasn't playing in golden colours.

Portsmouth's points have all come against golden-kit teams and winning against a white-shirted Burnley must be more than the much needed 3 points.

Portsmouth's first win of the season came against Wolves at Molineux, a day we all remember. Then came up Hull, with their traditional colours, and Pompey got another point after a sloppy performance. Wigan, playing in an unusual colour succumbed to defeat against a five-star Pompey side. But for once this season, things were different against the Clarets; winning through goals from Hreidarsson and Dindane.

Hermann Hreidarsson's after match comments were very encouraging. He said that Pompey might be on to something special. This win might prove that the unthinkable, the unlikely or call it whatever, might have started to happen.

Let us hope that Pompey will move on and gain more points in the fixtures to come against non-golden teams, and perhaps write history once more by doing another great escape, or as we may call it this time; a golden escape.

Cheers corny. I've had this article in my mind for a long time, but just couldn't write it. The most important, of course was the win. Let us enjoy the night for once, even if Wolves won again!

Well we've had enough of playing well and losing, and that had to change, and it has done. I do worry though that, given this performance, we've got enough to get out of trouble. After all Burnley were pretty rubbish. But we won, and I'm happy with that!

Three points is great but let's not get carried away we were awful ... Boatang and O'Hara had there worse games.. Ben-Haim is soo bad (come back soon Younes) Michael Brown has lost his bite and confidence.. Hermann looked suspect all game .. Finnan should be shot .. Yebda was on a different planet.. Smith was idustrious but could pass for toffee.. Positives for Asmir and Wilson only I reckon .. but it comes to something when we look most like scoring when Hermann and Kanu are in the box... I reckon they are our best strike partmnership !! .. even if they do have a combined age of 98 (lol)... Still .. three points is three points..
