Harry: Things Will Be Harder Than Ever

Pompey boss Harry Redknapp reckons the Premier League is going to be tougher and ever next season. But the manager is convinced that the team can target a UEFA Cup slot come the end of the season. That would mean Pompey finishing sixth or seventh - an improvement on last season's eighth-place finish - or winning one of the three cups they are involved in next season. “I think it will be ....

Cameroon's Enoh Interests Pompey

Pompey will run the eye over Cameroon midfielder Eyong Enoh in a friendly against Cape Town Ajax at the South African club's training ground on Wednesday. After their traumatic visit to Nigeria, Pompey are now settling into their South African training camp and manager Harry Redknapp is pleased to be there: “It’s the first time I’ve been and I absolutely love it – ....

African On The Move As Blues Move To Africa

One African player's Pompey exit seems to be closer, while another's permanent arrival is being sealed. That's while the rest of the squad head to Africa themselves for a fascinating test of how they are shaping up for the new season. Talk of Sulley Muntari going to Inter for #12.7m is gathering pace all the time. Reports suggest the deal has been agreed - although there has not been a word on ....

Draw On Pitch Follows Victory Off It

Pompey's first pre-season friendly ended in a 1-1 draw at Exeter - but the chances are Harry Redknapp won't be losing too much sleep over his squad's failure to bea the newly-promoted League Two team. It was a Pompey line-up that, while it included plenty of first-team members, also contained plenty of fringe men and trialists. Pompey will come away from St James's Park reflecting on missed ....

Redknapp's Warning As Third New Face Arrives

Harry Redknapp has marked the arrival of his third summer signing - Peter Crouch - with a warning that Pompey must not get sucked into anything like a relegation battle. The Blues haved finished eighth and ninth in the past two campaigns, with relegation never an issue, but there have been examples of teams suddenly struggling to stay afloat in the league once they get involved in the UEFA ....

Another Boomerang Pompey Striker...

They say you should never go back - but in the case of strikers returning for second spells at Fratton, that doesn't ring true. Peter Crouch won't be the first forward to retrace his steps and opt for a follow-up stint with the Blues - and there's no reason he can't be as successful, if not more successful, than some who have done it before. Crouch follows in the illustrious footsteps of Guy ....

Why Pompey Should Stick To Guns Over Kanu

Late June. Time for Wimbledon, Glastonbury, rain-affected cricket matches - and for Kanu to start doing battle with Pompey over a new contract. This time, though, there can be only one winner of the battle - and it's not Kanu. A year ago, the talismanic Nigerian held out almost until the new Premier League season had begun over a new deal - along the lines of the argument he's producing now, ....

Another Dream, But Is This Different?

Another new announcement about the new stadium. Another new set of designs. Is anyone still counting how many of these we've had in the past 30 years? Could this one be different, though? Could a club who so often down the decades have come up with the most exciting of schemes only to follow it with the most disappointing of attempts to see them through, finally be working in the real world this ....

Primus Excited At Euro Prospects

Linvoy Primus is off to America on Monday - but it's a trip or two to Europe that he's also beginning to focus on. The central defender, recently given a new contract at Fratton Park after a season lost to knee surgery, is on course to be 100 per cent fit for the start of the new campaign, and can't wait to be part of a squad venturing into Europe for the first time. Primus is to spend time ....

Training Ground Plan Gets Big Boost

Pompey's hopes of finally getting their state-of-the-art new training ground built have had a big boost with the scheme being welcomed by people in Gosport. More than 100 people attended a public meeting to give the project for the Alver Valley at Lee-on-the-Solent the sort of support the earlier proposals for land at Titchfield never had. The News reported that the proposed 8m ....

Now England Expects As Well As Pompey

It wasn't so long ago Pompey couldn't get the England manager - whoever it was - to come anywhere near Fratton Park, even to watch the opposition. Now they have had an 11-minute taste of having more than a quarter of the England team - with the promise of plenty more caps coming Fratton Park's way. If winning the FA Cup and finishing eighth in the league to give Pompey their best ....

Harry's Pompey Work Isn't Done Yet

Harry Redknapp has again nailed his colours to the Pompey mast - and says he doesn't want to stop at winning the FA Cup. Redknapp turned down two 'exceptional' offers to manage elsewhere last season - one from Newcaastle the other from an unidentified Premier league club - and says he couldn't have lived with himself had he not stayed at Fratton. His latest comments shoot down talk that ....

Everything's For The Best In Pompey's World

THEY'RE saying it can't get any better than this for Pompey. But they were saying that straight after the Cup final - and arguably it already has. Just when you thought lifting the trophy would be enough for most, the Blues went and attracted a staggering (estimated) 200,000 people to the victory parade. That's three times the number who turned out five years and a week ago to celebrate the ....

The Way To Wembley: Part 3

The Way To Wembley: Part 2

Part two of our Cup run rerun takes us back to the only game Pompey played at home on the way to Wembley - and the only one in which they let in a goal. Paul Sturrock's Plymouth were the opposition for a fourth round tie on a cold but sunny Fratton afternoon. ROUND FOUR, Pompey 2 (Diarra, Kranjcar) Plymouth 1 Goals from Lassana Diarra and Niko Kranjcar put Pompey in the fifth round of the FA ....

Right - that's the boring old Premier League season over and done with it. Now, finally, we can do what we've been wanting to do since April 5 - concentrate on the Cup.

Last Chance To Find Form For Wembley

There were protests about plans for the Premier League's G£me 39 - well, this is G£me 38 and there's a couple of million quid riding on it for Pompey. Beat Fulham and they could finish sixth and net £10.8m - lose and they could be as low as ninth which would make them £8.64m. Whatever the price on the result, Pompey are promising Fulham's relegation rivals they will be ....

Defenders Have Plenty To Celebrate

Three of Pompey's central defenders have reasons to be cheerful. Sylvain Distin has been voted player of the season by his team-mates, Linvoy Primus is reflecting on signing a new one-year deal and Noe Pamarot's good recovery from injury has put him in with an outside chance of being in the 16 at Wembley. Distin, who has impressed with performances of pace and power alongside Sol Campbell in ....

One Back From Injury - Another 'hurt'

There was good and bad news on the injury front as Pompey reserves ended their season with a victory over Fulham at Fratton Park. Noe Pamarot returned successfully from a hamstring injury - but David Nugent was withdrawn from the team at the last minute after a feeling a slight tweak in his groin. Pompey's side also included Richard Hughes, Lucien Aubey and Martin Cranie. Pamarot had a ....

Finishing Sixth Is The New Finishing Fifth

Only one more round of Premier League games to go - and one 10 more forecasts we can get wrong. Pompey's hopes of finishing fifth were dashed for good at the weekend - though by themselves, not others. The loss at Middlesbrough was all the more galling because Everton and Aston Villa both lost. So if Pompey had won, they would go into the final weekend still hoping that UEFA Cup spot through ....

Too Much Ground To Make Up For Pompey?

Pompey remain four points behind Everton - and by our reckoning they are not quite going to close the gap over the last three games. We still have them down to cut the deficit to two by the end of the season, so not quite enough to finish fifth and grab the league UEFA Cup spot. We forecast the defeat at Man City last weekend, and this weekend we are predicting the two results Pompey probably most want - a win for themselves over Blackburn at Fratton Park, with a draw for Everton and ....

Redknapp's Rovers Warning

Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is expecting Blackburn Rovers to give his side the toughest of tests as they try to keep alive their hopes of finishing fifth. Sunday's Fratton Park encounter will see the Blues doing battle with a team who have lost fewer away games than they have this season - just five. But Pompey can afford no more slip-ups if they want to catch Everton, currently four points ahead of them with three games to play. Redknapp told The News: 'It's a very tough game. Look at ....
