'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Chew The Fat With Chix - July 14th



It's nearly the end of the week so it must mean another edition of 'Chew The Fat'

As always there are loads of topics to discuss during this evenings debate and as is the norm I'll be live and on line only on Vital Pompey from approx. 7:30 seeking your views and giving my opinion on the hot topics of the week.

I'll chat about anything Pompey however tenuous, so just toss in the subject you want to discuss and we will take it from there.

But to get you thinking, how about..

The No.13 Shirt - It's been mooted in some quarters that Stephen Henderson will be given the No.13 squad number this season a number which many supporters believe was retired after the death of Aaron Flahavan ten years ago next month.

The club claim that No.13 was never 'officially' retired and has been used (a couple of times) since Aaron's death, yet many fans still feel that the number should not used and would like it officially retired

What's you view ?

Should we (the fans) request that the club re-think this issue especially as it is the 10th anniversary of Aaron's death and in fairness if anybody was entitled to wear the No.13 it would have been his brother Darryl last season - Yet he wore No.37

Cotterill Bashing - Once again this week I have witnessed an unhealthy trend towards what seems to be Pompey's latest sport - Bashing Steve Cotterill - It doesn't seem to matter what the poor bloke says or does some fans take to the boards and have really got it in for him- Surely it's about time this stopped.

Who wants to join me in bashing those bash Cotterill ?

Join my merry throng or better still blame SC for the latest increase in petrol or whatever and see what reaction you get ;)

Friendlies - Did you go the Westleigh Park on Monday or are you going to Fratton at the weekend to watch the blues in action against Chelski - Let me know what you witnessed or what you are expecting from a near full house on Saturday

Those are just a few ideas for discussion, but as I say every week ... It's your agenda and anything goes!

Those that have taken part in any of the previous editions of 'Chew The Fat' will no doubt testify that a lively discussion is always had by all.

So why not join in with me, 'on the spot' to respond to your thoughts, comments and opinions on the issues of the week, hopefully with a bit of fun, banter, controversy and maybe even one of my many humorous anecdotes or a quiz thrown in for good measure.

Come on log on @ 7:30 and share your views only on Vital Pompey

Alternatively, if you are unable to join in tonight but want to add to the debate why not throw in your thoughts right now and I'll respond to them throughout the evening.

Finally, does anybody want to hazard a guess at the former Pompey player in the title picture ?

Arnold Mbueva?
Beijing_Bob
That's the one Bob, I remember him scoring against Wolfsburg I believe. Never really impressed me that much, hasn't really got an exciting enough name. Unlike Papa Bouba Diop!
PompeyFrippy
Ah.. do you mean ...
Arnold Makengo Mvuemba now with for FC Lorient
or
Collins Mbesuma now with Golden Arrows in South Africa ??
Chix
Arnold Mvuemba played in the same midfield (U21 for France) as Lassie Diarra, but when with us Arnold was way down the pecking list, as we had a host of midfield talent then.
pompeyyong
Haha yea Mvuemba sounds right! To be fair to him, he arrived at a pompey punching unsustainably above their weight financially. With the likes of Diarra, Mendes and Muntari in the side he never had a chance. In any other era he would have done well given time. Mbesuma on the other hand... useless, poor attitude and a highly over inflated (waist line and) opinion of himself.
