Pompey Face Toughest Test Of Run-in

Pompey take on Manchester City at Eastlands knowing a win will take them to within a point of Everton in the race for fifth place - and remember that Pompey have the more straightforward run of final three games. But let's not run before we can walk. If anything, this is Pompey's toughest game of their last four - against a team who could still finish fifth themselves and who have never lost at home to the Blues at their new(ish0 ground. Sven Goran Eriksson had a fantastic first half to his ....

Uefa Cup Hopefuls Can't Keep Up

Another week, another round of twists and turns in our bid to predict how the Premier League will look on the evening of Sunday, May 11 - ie, when the last games have been played. Everton have picked up one point less than we forecast from their games against Birmingham and Chelsea, but Pompey dropped two when they failed to find the net against Newcastle. That, then, means the gap between the sides in our projected final table is up to two points - but that is assuming the Blues (our ones not ....

Davis Hopes - As Fans Wait

Sean Davis is hoping to play his way into Pompey's FA Cup final team at Wembley - and his performance against Newcastle looks like a good start to his campaign. The Pompey midfielder is being given the chance to deputise for the injured Lassana Diarra, and while it is unlikely the Diarra-Muntari-Diop line-up in the middle will be broken up by anything other than injury, Davis at least aims to get into pole position if any other midfielder is going to be called upon. Pedro Mendes, Richard ....

Pompey-everton Gaps Grows Ever Smaller

Pompey are set to finish just one point behind Everton, according to the remainder of our Premier League predictions. The four-point gap we were predicting a week ago has been quartered by Pompey's win at West Ham, where we were forecasting a draw. So Harry Redknapp's exaggerated assertion this week that the Toffees almost need to lose all their games while Pompey win all theirs is not all it seems.  In fact, if Pompey can win their last three home games and pick up a point in total from ....

Striker Quandary For Hammers Trip

Pompey are without Jermain Defoe as they try to refocus on their bid to grab fifth spot in the league at West Ham on Tuesday night. He is attending his grandmother's funeral - and his absence could open the door for a rare Premier League start for David Nugent, who has come on as a substitute in Pompey's past two games. The Blues need something from Upton Park if they're to close the seven-point gap Everton have opend up above them, but they are also set to be without hamstring injury victim ....

Four-point Gap Is Set To Stay

POMPEY are four points behind Everton - and according to our predictions, that's how they'll stand when another Premier League season comes to a close on Sunday, May 11. Both teams did as we'd forecasted this weekend - Pompey beat Wigan and Everton lost at Anfield. That means no change to the crucial section of our projected final table, an amended version of which is shown below. The next week will be interesting though - Everton seem certain to win at Derby, but we have Pompey down to lose ....

Seats Shareout Takes New Twist

The big Wembley seats shareout has taken another twist with news that another 1,180 tickets for Pompey’s FA Cup semi-final with West Brom will go on sale to season ticket holders. They will be sold from the club’s ticket office at 9am on Wednesday, April 2, and will be limited to two per person. Inevitably, the development has sparked accusations season ticket holders are getting too many bites at the cherry - but Pompey have moved to insist once again they are ....

Everton's Lead Down To Four Points

Funny old game, isn't it? Pompey lost at the weekend and Everton drew - and yet Pompey are now closer to the Toffees in our predicted final table than at any earlier stage of our little forecasting game. We had pompey down for a point against Spurs - they didn't get it. But we had Everton down to collect three at home to West Ham, and they got only one. That means that in our final placings, Pompey end just four points behind the Toffees in the race for fifth. In the 12 games played in the ....

Fifth Place Isn't So Distant Now

POMPEY are edging closer to a fifth-placed finish - one which would mean them being in next season's UEFA Cup regardless of what happens in the FA Cup.  Last weekend's results went better for Pompey than expected - and our predictions for the rest of the season now have the Blues ending clear in sixth place and only five points behind Everton in fifth. That's three points less than the gap was when our forecasts of Pompey drawing with Villa and Everton doing likewise at Fulham were ....

Draw On Cards In Villa Clash

EASY, this forecasting lark. Out of 10 Premier League games to be played in the past week-and-a-bit, we got seven right - including Pompey's win over Birmingham. That's three out of four league results we have correctly called for PFC since we set our stall out before the Bolton game. And it all means the race for sixth place is going to be pretty close - even if the bid for fourth and fifth still looks to be going the way of the Merseyside clubs. Recent successes in our predictions game ....

It's A New Fratton Fairytale

EVEN by the remarkable standards of Pompey's modern era, it has been a staggering weekend. And at the end of it, the Blues stand as FA Cup semi-finalists alongside three clubs from the division below them. Pompey started the weekend dreaming of progress to the last four. What we wouldn't have given for a line-up of ourselves, Chelsea, Middlesbrough and West Brom. Well, Pompey and the Baggies made it; the other two Premier league clubs didn't, dumped out by Championship pair Barnsley and ....

Race For Sixth Couldn't Be Tighter

It wasn't the best of weekends for Pompey - and the same can be said of our latest Premier League predictions. We got five out of 10 results right, and sadly that included our forcast that the Blues would get nothing from the trip to Goodison Park. But it's not all bad news. Even though Aston Villa and Blackburn fared better than we predicted with a draw and a win at Arsenal and Newcastle respectively, we still reckon Pompey are in line to finish seventh. Man City picking up only one point ....

Still Heading For Seventh Place...

Pompey are still heading for a seventh-place finish if you believe our Premier League predictions for the rest of the season - but that would now meaning missing out on a UEFA Cup spot. We have adjusted our final table after this weekend's games, which saw us get six out of nine results correct. Pompey's home win over Sunderland was one of the outcomes we went for, and in fact only one of Saturday's six games failed to turn out as we'd predicted. One consolation is Manchester City's defeat to ....

Why Primus Is Hopeful Over New Deal

Linvoy Primus believes Pompey would not have sanctioned his visits to one of the world's top knee surgeons if they weren't planning to offer him a new contract.   The defender is making good progress in his recovery from a knee operation carried out in Colorado in the US by Richard Steadman and is keen to be at the peak of fitness by the start of the next pre-season campaign. Recent stories suggested he feared for his future, but Primus said he was actually more positive than ....

New Stadium Plans Make Progress

Pompey are making better progress with their plans for a new stadium at Horsea Island than they have done with the previous plan for The Hard or with the scheme for a new training ground at Titchfield. The News has reported that city council leaders have revealed they are close to appointing an agent to negotiate a deal for the sale of the land needed for the new ground in the north of Portsmouth Harbour. Ruling councillors confirmed their unanimous support for the project at a meeting ....

Kanu May Be On Move

Kanu is set to move to Australia if Pompey secure the services of Jermain Defoe and Milan Baros long-term. The Nigerian is said to be attracting interest down under and is ready to make the move if his stint at Fratton Park ends after this season. The Nigerian international's legal representative, Samuel Okoronkwo, says last season's Blues top scorer is attracting interest from Australian club Gold Coast Galaxy, who are looking to sign him as their star player. The newly-formed team, who ....

Pompey Head For Seventh-place Finish

POMPEY are heading for a better finish in the Premier League than last year - but whether they qualify for Europe depends on who wins the cups. We have predicted the results of every Premier League still to be played, and come up with a seventh-placed finish for the Blues. That's two places higher than last year, but may still not be enough to get the Blues into the UEFA Cup. But if both the cups are won by sides already in the Champions League - and remember, Chelsea are in the Carling final ....

Defoe's Here, But Who Will He Partner?

JERMAIN DEFOE makes his Pompey debut against Chelsea - but whether Benjani Mwaruwari might be lining up alongside him remains to be seen. His deadline day move to Manchester City fell through at the last minute but some reports say the Premier League is looking at whether it can go through today. Pompey fans will be happy for it not to go through - they are delighted at Defoe's capture for somewhere between £8m and £10m, but don't want to see Benjani leaving to raise the ....

Pompey Set For Toughest Of Tests

THIS should be a nice diversion from the FA Cup for two of the top five favourites for the trophy. It's Champions League certs versus UEFA cup hopefuls at Old Trafford - and is it too much to hope that it might not be as one-sided as this Premier League fixture normally is? THE FORMBOOK SAYS: A home win is by far the most likely outcome: Pompey are not 10/1 to win for nothing. But Pompey are a better outift on the road this season than ever before in the Premier, and United have struggled to ....

Baros Eager To Get Started

He scored at Old Trafford a year ago for Aston Villa. Now Milan Baros is looking to repeat the trick for Pompey - if he plays. The Czech Republic international striker goes straight into the squad for Wednesday night's game - whether he goes straight into the starting line-up is a different question. Harry Redknapp seems likely to go with one up front against the champions and Benjani Mwaruwari would appear to be in pole position for the spot. But the 26-year-old, who also scored the goal at ....

Give Me A Chance At Pompey

LAUREN has pleaded with Pompey fans to give him a chance to show them his best form. He admits he has been a bit-part player this season but is now hoping a decent run in the side will give him a platform to make a difference to the team. Meanwhile, Pompey are close to securing Milan Baros on loan until the end of the season. The former Arsenal title winner has had a disappointing year, with injury disrupting his progress and his number of starts severely hit by Glen Johnson's form in his ....

Midfielder's Praise For Pompey Passion

Richard Hughes has thanked Pompey's fans for sticking by them despite their poor home form - and helping them put their barren Fratton run behind them by beating Derby. The midfielder was a subsitute and played only the final nine minutes as Benjani mwaruwari's hat-trick saw the Blues come from behind against the worst side in the Premier League. But from his place on the bench, Hughes could see how the atmosphere in the first half when the crowd took to incessant chanting of 'Blue Army' ....

Sid Set To Follow Lassie?

Lassana Diarra is set to come straight into Pompey's side against Derby on Saturday as Pompey set their sights on a second Premier League midfielder. Diarra has agreed his move to Fratton from Arsenal and all that remain to be sorted are minor details. The French international will cost Pompey a fee of around £5m as he ends his miserable stay at the Emirates Stadium, where he moved in the summer from Chelsea. Diarra has agreed personal terms and passed a medical at Fratton and is set to ....

Don't Rule Out Defoe Deal

Peter Storrie said last Thursday he couldn't see Jermain Defoe coming to Fratton Park. Harry Redknapp said the same on Saturday. Expect a bid by about Wednesday. Pompey are keen to build on Harry Redknapp's decision to stay and realise his managerial ambitions at Fratton Park instead of putting them into practice at Newcastle and are ready to spend big money on one star signing this month. With striker resources thin to say the least, a new man up front has to be the priority if Pompey ....

Leading Pompey Into The (stadium Of) Light

Harry Redknapp leads Pompey to the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon. Let's just say that once more for good measure - Harry Redknapp leads Pompey to the Stadium of Light on Sunday. How close we came to Harry Redknapp not being in charge of the Blues at Sunderland. Harry's turned down Toon, Toon say he was only one of their choices - yeah, course he was - and most connected with Pompey seem abolsutely delighted. One or two on the messageboards have suggested even talking to Newcastle was ....
