Jamo Can Hold Head High - But That's Bad News For Blues

David James will be virtually one of a kind when he returns home with the England squad with his head held high.

Ghana showed why David James was pleased to avoid them in the last 16 at the World Cup when they beat the USA 2-1 to make the last eight.

Pompey Face New Race Against Time In Team-building Plans

Six creditors stand between Pompey and permission to start signing players again.

Cotterill's Pompey Aim? Ask Him In 10 Weeks...

New Pompey boss Steve Cotterill says he will have a firm idea by the end of August how much can be expected of his team in the coming season.

Chief executive David Lampitt hailed a significant day for the future of Portsmouth Football Club after the long-awaited CVA was approved by creditors.

Pompey fans are leading the calls for David James to be given back the England keeper’s jersey after Robert Green’s horrendous blunder let two points slip in their opening game against the USA.
