Chew The Fat With Chix - Aug 25th

Chew The Fat With Chix - Aug 25th
Blinking 'eck is it Thursday again already? Well on the assumption that it is, it must mean it is time to 'Chew The Fat' once again.

Last week we saw a bumper debate unfold with over 200 comments on various topics thrown back and forth between those that took part and I am sure tonight will be no different with loads of topics to discuss during the evening.

Remember I'll be live and on line only on Vital Pompey from approx. 7:30 to seek your views and give my opinion on the hot topics of the week.

I'm happy to 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..



Substitute - There has been a lot of chat recently about the reduction in subs from seven to five. Stevie C has made his view known and despite not being able to fill the bench with seven on a number of occasions last season thinks it is a bad move as it doesn`t allow fringe players or developing youngsters to get involved with the team on matchdays, but what do you think ?

Is the reduction from seven to five substitutes a good idea ?

If SC is worried about the development of youngsters should he not re-introduce a reserve team ?

Whatever your thoughts on 'Substitutes` I want to hear them.



The Seeker - As this will be the last `CTF` before the Summer transfer window closes I want to know what you would do if you were Steve Cotterill.

Would you be content with the squad you have or want to strengthen it with one or two more permanent signings or would you perhaps take the same stance as Steve and bide your time and hopefully pick up a few quality loans once the premiership clubs have declared their squads.

Maybe you think our squad big enough now already or perhaps we need to strengthen in one or two particular areas. Do we need more `bums on seats`.

Let me know what you think.



My Generation
- I overheard a bloke the other day claim that Benjani was the finest goal scorer he had ever seen in a Pompey shirt. I was just about to jump in and accuse him of being daft and correct his knowledge when it occurred to me that he was only in his late teens/early twenties and from his perspective he could well be right !

So on the basis that Pompey fans come in all shapes and sizes (and ages) I want to know your top three Pompey players that you have seen play (either in the flesh or on the telly) and we`ll see if you can draw up a `Chew The Fat` All Time XI. So get your thinking caps on and let me know have your thoughts - Whether it will be as good as our `Long Name XI` from last week remains to be seen but throw in your ideas anyway and we can see how it develops.



Those are just a few ideas for discussion, but as I say every week ... It's your agenda so 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 this week`s former Pompey player in the title picture ?

I haven't changed my opinion on substitutes since a few weeks ago when I wrote this…

I don't think we need a sub keeper.

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.
