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. The Pompey boss doesn’t believe Hermann Hreidarsson is ready to start a game after eight months out with a serious Achilles injury – even though many fans are clamouring for Carl Dickinson to be replaced at ....

Pompey Close In On Reinforcements As Duo Await Their Fate

Steve Cotterill is hoping he will get the go-ahead to bring in three players during this month’s transfer window. The Pompey boss has handed chief executive David Lampitt his wish-list to boost a squad which badly needs new blood. And he hopes to further strengthen his ranks with a loan or two. Meanwhile, Cotterill has also revealed news regarding Greg Halford and Liam ....

Skipper Makes Post-brighton Vow As Pompey Boss Hits Out

Aaron Mokoena says Pompey must \'turn the corner\' after their poor run of results continued in the FA Cup at Brighton - but insists they have plenty of time to do so. The skipper said he would make no excuses for the 3-1 loss at the Withdean and called on the squad and club to stick together to get things moving in the right direction again. Meanwhile Steve Cotterill has given his verdict on a ....

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 ....

Brighton V Pompey: Who Is Favourite To Win Battle Of The Weakened Teams?

The home team are flying in League One, which they have topped since early in the season. The visitors are shipping goals in the division below like they\'re going out of fashion. So Pompey\'s FA Cup third-round visit to Brighton on Saturday has the ingredients for an upset. But still opinion seems divided on who are favourites to progress to the fourth round. Brighton boss Gus Poyet says Albion ....

Pompey Chief Gives Verdict On Brown, Hughes, Lawrence, Utaka - And More

John Utaka and Liam Lawrence aren’t on the brink of leaving Pompey. Reduced-terms offers to Michael Brown and Richard Hughes have been withdrawn. Attempts are being made to tie David Nugent, Joel Ward and Nadir Ciftci to Fratton Park. And Pompey aren’t panicking about being in the bottom half of the Championship table. Those are the headline points from David Lampitt’s latest ....

Team-mate Leaps To Defence Of Pompey Contract Pair - But Will Chainrai Act?

The row over Michael Brown and Richard Hughes’ contract wrangles has deepened with Liam Lawrence criticising Pompey for not sorting it out and allowing the pair to continue playing. The saga has divided opinion, with many fans sympathetic to the players, who have reportedly offered to take wage cuts of up to 50 per cent, but others asking why the Blues should continue paying what would ....

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. Pompey's new boss claimed less than a week a go that 'someone was due a hiding' from his erstwhile goal-shy side. With ....

Pompey Midfielder Willing To Cut Pay - But Will His Pal Go The Same Way?

One of Pompey’s contract-conundrum midfielders says he is willing to take a 50 per cent pay cut to stay at Fratton – now supporters will be wondering whether the other one make a similar offer. Richard Hughes says he and his agent have told Pompey they will negotiate downwards so the problem of the Scot being able to play only more one game for the club can be resolved. Hughes is ....

Leeds 3 Pompey 3: Old Boy's Og Seals A Famous Comeback

Andy O’Brien didn’t score too many goals for Pompey when he was at Fratton Park but he got two here at the wrong end – one of which could justifiably be claimed by Richard Hughes - to help the brilliant Blues to a point as they twice came back from two goals down to stun Leeds. There were shades of Corporal Punishment in 1989 (well, almost) as Steve Cotterill’s battlers ....

Pompey 2010 Rewind: Part Two

It's time for the second part in our week-long look back at the high spots of Pompey's year. Where else could we turn to for this instalment, than Wembley, April 11, and Redknapp's Spurs 0 Grant's Pompey 2...   At the start of the season, someone in the national press brilliantly described Pompey as a team who looked like they had got dressed in the dark but were determined to go to the ....

Pompey 2010 Rewind: Part One

All this week we're reliving Pompey's high points of 2010. We start with a day that will live long in the memory of all those who were there and plenty who weren't - February 13, FA Cup fifth round, Southampton 1 Pompey 4. Move over Lomana Lualua. Step aside Yakubu, Arjan De Zeeuw, Patrik Berger and the rest. You may have fashioned four goals in the first 26 minutes of Southampton’s last ....

Could Pompey Be Back At Wembley? One Person Thinks So...

Pompey’s best displays of the season could be still in front of them – and not behind them, hopes boss Steve Cotterill.

Steve Cotterill believes a reduction in the number of games scheduled for the Christmas and new year period is in order – but insists he is not calling for a winter break.

Premier Pair May Pounce For Key Pompey Man

Pompey are determined to fend off interest in David Nugent from Wigan and – for the second time – Blackpool and keep the striker at Fratton Park in January. Steve Cotterill has said he is keen to keep the Scouser at Fratton as is a key player of his squad, and the player himself seems content at Pompey. The worry for fans will be this – will Cotterill be under pressure from the ....

Pompey Are 15th - Yet So Close To The Play-off Zone

Pompey were pushed down to 15th place in the Championship by their lack of action – but an increasingly-congested divisison, they remain just two wins off a place in the play-off zone. The home clash with Scunthorpe was one of four Championship games that fell victim to the snow, which left Blues fans with little more to do than see how the day’s other games panned ....

Pompey Beaten At Home - By Snow

Pompey's clash with Scunthorpe has been called off because of the heavy snow affecting the south. Although the pitch has been kept well-covered all week, the amount of snow in and around the ground led to officials calling it off this morning. It's the second home match lost to the weather this month and will mean there will have been a six-week gap between home matches by the ....

Pompey's Win Hopes Face A Twin Threat

There are two threats to Pompey’s hopes of landing another three points against Scunthorpe at Fratton Park. One is the visitors’ determination to end a five-match losing run – the other is the weather. If Hampshire sees as much snow as forecasters reckon it will, the game is unlikely to take place. But if it does Steve Cotterill will be warning his men to watch out for The ....

What Pompey Need To Do To Earn A Play-off Place

Steve Cotterill says a winning start to Pompey’s run of five games in 17 days over the Christmas and New Year period is crucial if the Blues are to maintain their hopes of reaching the play-offs. The Pompey reckons a points-laden holiday period is vital if his team are to reach the 73 to 75 points he believes they will need to finish in the top six. That means three points at home to ....
