Attendance: lost count at 250
This is the first game I've been able to watch for months, so I can finally judge for myself where we're at.
We played really well to start, passing the ball around quite nicely on the ground, making a few good moves and openings. Gardner should have scored a sitter, but James proved why he really ought to still be England's #1.
Pompey came back into it and we resorted to the dreaded hoofball that I've been reading about on this forum. The rest of the first half was pretty much just a game of tennis. Nothing of note happened apart from Gardner looking like a bit of an amateur, Berger trying to take the skin off the ball whenever he's remotely near the goal and Petrov sulking every time he misplaces a pass instead of, yknow, running back and trying to get the ball.
We should win this game quite comfortably. 1 or 2-0, but who knows...
I want to see Moore on for Gardner.
A game we really, really should have won, but that's the way the cookie/biscuit/thing crumbles. Portsmouth seemed to have no wish for anything other than a 0-0 and it was up to us to make the breakthrough, which we had at least a few chances to do. Not a bore draw by any means. When we stayed away from the hoofing, we looked good. We need a right back to complete our back four, but those two in the middle, it doesn't get any better than that.
