There will be goals but now we have a full team we should get our revenge for last month's defeat. Play up Pompey.

Poor game to be honest, We could have had 3 pens tho. You came to shut up shop, no shots on target, your supporters were loud tho. Good luck with the rest of the year.

p.s. you need to get andy reid in the gym, he fell over once, and was stranded like a turtle on it's back! Looks to be carrying too much weight to be a prem player.

it was clearly a penalty I think. When we had Bardsley on loan his tackling and covering were excellent, his problem was he couldn't cross a ball for s**t! Don't know if he's like that up there??? Is it true you've taken on Brian Kidd??
