Well its still Panto season so it should be Up Pompeii – but hey ho 😉
This morning we are greeted with the news that Nikki B is out for a further three weeks than thought, I know I am not his biggest fan but tonight’s game is a typical game where we could need that Plan B, Nik is the only one who has a bit of height and alongside AA or even Eduardo just maybe he would have been the ideal player to bring on from the bench if needed to make a difference.
I haven’t seen any squad for tonight but I think we can be sure that there will be no Cesc and no Denilson.
Tonight is one of those games that we really need to win, away from home, nasty weather and no doubt by the sea there will be a bit of a gale force wind to cope with.
But cope with it I expect us to do! The World Cup looms, many players have said that they are desperate to be involved. The only way some of them will be is to start showing their ability for their club. Not during an odd game or two, but week in week out, home and away.
So Diaby, Nasri and Theo – are you listening??
Tonight is not so difficult for the boss to select his team; neither will be the West Ham game but after that, rather him than me!
Sagna TV Gallas Traore
Ramsey Song Diaby
Nasri Eduardo AA
Can you believe I even started to miss Eboue then for a split second, I bet he would have been alongside Song had he been available.
I reckon it will be a tough game, not quite as bad as the Fulham away earlier in the season, but a game we will win by an odd goal or two…. Pompey will be ready to fight for every ball; we need to make sure we are ready to do the same.
So following a night where the Dippers got lucky again and sneaked a 1-0 away at Aston Villa, let’s get down South and bring back three convincing points
Not much gossip around again other than any loan move for Wilshere has been put on hold following the injury to Cesc, and as much as we are being linked to Bellamy, the boss has said he is not on his wish list!
The Wilshere one is interesting, maybe we will start to see him play a bit more, that is an exciting prospect, I think he is one of the younger players who does have a bit of spike about him and could be ready to make the step up?
That’s about it folks, have a great day and those who are travelling to Portsmouth, good luck to you, I shall be sat in the dry watching on the television – Sky Sports 1, 7.45 kick off..
