The Two Things Pompey Need To Get Moving Once More...

A couple of new players and a couple of victories are all that's needed to get Pompey's season back on track.

Another One To Bridge The Southampton-portsmouth Divide? Probably Not...

Southampton winger Jason Puncheon seems unlikely to spend the rest of the season at Fratton Park – even though Pompey are rumoured to be one of a host of Premier League and Championship clubs chasing him. Puncheon, impressive for Millwall at Fratton on Boxing Day during a loan spell in which he has scored five goals in seven games, could turn out to be one of the hot properties of the ....

£500,000 Bid For Pompey Striker Would Be An Insult

Pompey are likely to tell Blackpool what they can do with an offer of £500,000 for David Nugent if one is forthcoming. The Blues may still have their backs against the wall where money is concerned but talk of such a valuation of a proven scorer at Championship level at a time when Darren Bent is moving in a deal worth up to £24m is an insult - both to Pompey and ....

Cotterill Is Urged To Appoint A New Pompey Captain

Pompey boss Steve Cotterill has been urged to hand the captain’s armband to Liam Lawrence after Aaron Mokoena earned a second ban of the season with another booking at Nottingham Forest.

Pompey New Boy Finds Plenty Of Reasons To Take Heart

New arrival Ritchie de Laet found much to impress him despite his Pompey debut turning sour with Nottingham Forest's two late goals turning victory into defeat. The defender, on loan from Manchester United, praised his team-mates for a performance that so nearly spelled the end of Forest's long unbeaten home run and also hailed the fans who he already knew would be there in ....

Pompey At Forest: We Could Do With A Great Start - Or De Laet Show

Nottingham Forest's recent record is awful - they can't buy a win. At least, their recent record against Pompey is. It's just a shame their actual form in recent weeks is rather different. It's nearly a decade since Forest last beat Pompey - that was when the Blues were struggling to stay in division one under Graham Rix - but this game finds them in great form in the Championship and they start ....

Attackers And Midfielders Told: Help Pompey Defend

Pompey’s forwards and midfielders can do their bit to help the Blues win at Nottingham Forest on Saturday – by helping the team defend better than they have been of late. Boss Steve Cotterill says every one of the 11 players he sends out at the City Ground (if he can find that many…) will have a responsibility to help stem the flow of goals that have been scored past Pompey in ....

Brown Off To Wolves? At Least Cotterill Has A Replacement In Mind

Michael Brown could be Wolves-bound as Steve Cotterill prepares to replace him in central midfield with Liam Lawrence. Brown has almost certainly played his last game for the Blues after failing to agree reduced terms to stay at Fratton, and Mick McCarthy has refused to rule out a move for the former Sheffield United midfield man. And Cotterill says Lawrence is a ready-made engine room partner ....

Would Pompey's Leaky Defence Be Boosted By Hermann?

Pompey’s defence is leaking goals left, right and centre but Steve Cotterill still doesn’t believe it would benefit from having The Hermannator thrown back into it.

Do Pompey Need And Want A Cup Run? You Bet

Some managers think it\'s a mere distraction to the job of finishing as high up their league as they can. Some players think the same. But you won\'t find too many fans who don\'t want their team to go on a run in the FA Cup. And that\'s as true for Pompey fans, who have had five trips to Wembley in less than three years, as it is for the likes of supporters of Brighton, who have to go back a ....

Pompey 2010 Rewind: Part Four

The year is nearly for turning and we've reached part four of our week-long look back at Pompey's 2010 highlights. This one is all about a Friday night goal feast against one of those teams we love to hate...   Well no one saw that coming. Except perhaps Steve Cotterill.
