He did not say whether this was supposed to be an excuse for the 11 points his superstars have dropped in three ....

Fratton Forecasting Is A Piece Of Cake

Don’t want to boast or anything, but we called four of Pompey’s five games in April correctly. We told you the Blues would draw at Hull and Newcastle, beat Bolton and lose at Man Utd. The only blot on the record was a forecast of a victory at home to West Brom. But, like we say, we won’t go on about it. Instead, we’ll concentrate on what’s still to come, and we can ....

Pompey Get Injury Boost For Vital Run-in

Niko Kranjcar is recovering fast from the ankle injury that saw him stretchered off against Bolton – and could well play again this season.

Hart Happier Than Fans With Pompey's Point

Pompey’s fans weren’t too impressed with the draw against West Brom – but Paul Hart doesn’t seem too downcast.

Traore: Pompey Have Hard Work To Do Yet

Pompey must not start thinking they are already safe, says a member of the squad desperate to play a part in the run-in.

Pompey's Three Lions Boost Club And Country

England can breathe a sigh of relief after narrowly beating Ukraine at Wembley – and Pompey can too after their three Lions came through the game unscathed and in form.

Crouch was replaced by Shaun Wright-Phillips late on but it was ....

Utaka 'off In Summer' - Will Niko Follow?

Reports say John Utaka could be heading back to France in the summer – while Pompey are being told they could face a battle to keep hold of another more favoured player.

The Nigerian international has failed to make an impact this season, flattering to deceive on the few occasions he has got ....

Paul Hart says he will not be afraid to take a few gambles as he tries to guide Pompey through the run-in.

Pompey Staying At Fratton - At Least For Now

Pompey have come up with a new plan to stay at Fratton Park - admitting that moving to Horsea Island could take much longer than previously thought. The club say their ultimate aim remains a new 40-45,000-seater stadium at Horsea Island, but over the past year it has become increasingly apparent that this may take considerably longer to achieve. So they have come up with a two-stage plan: the ....

Pennant Injury Could Force Hart Rethink

Paul Hart is set to be forced into a formation rethink if Jermaine Pennant is ruled out of the clash with Everton by a calf injury. There are fears the injury is a tear, which would rule out any hope of the wideman, on loan from Liverpool, being fit to face the blue half of Merseyside. Who would come into his place is uncertain, with the obvious choice John Utaka out of the picture recently ....
