What do the electoral promises really mean?
at 18:30 21 Nov 2019

We're going to spend x billions on y = We're going to start this project then abandon it.

We're going to spend x billions on y by 2030 = This is never going to happen.

We have an aspiration to spend x billions on y = There's not a cat in hell's chance we're ever going to do this.

Ex-Saints in Europe
at 13:12 8 Nov 2019

Even though last season was outstanding, with several ex-Saints featuring in the Champions League Final, this could be the best ever season for ex-Saints playing in the Champions League & Europa League.

The 2019/20 ex-Saints European squad. It's particularly strong in the central defensive area. Lemina is a weak link but he could be replaced by Djenepo next year:

Forster
Gazzaniga
Chambers
Fonte
van Dijk
Alderweireld
Lovren
Shaw
Lemina
Davis
Elyounoussi
Tadic
Oxlade-Chamberlain
Mané
Bale

Bench:
Wanyama
Lallana

Manager: Pochettino
Coach: Rohl
DOF Mitchell

It's going to be difficult to improve on this next season as we don't have enough players of European quality left to sell or loan out any more. But, what our academy and recruitment department have achieved for other clubs in recent years is impressive. Everybody involved must feel very proud.

Elyounoussi
at 01:45 3 Nov 2019

I never rated him when he was here. He showed a couple of flashes of skill but he looked lightweight and a bit lost. However, his form at Celtic has been nothing short of spectacular. He's scored 7 goals in his last 7 games and Celtic fans see him as a real superstar.

The argument against him is that the Scottish League is a much lower level than the Premier League but he's also been playing in the Champions League, which is a higher level. We signed van Dijk and Wanyama from Celtic and they coped well with the Premier League.

I'm not saying Elyounoussi is going to be our saviour. He may still be as poor as we thought he was. Perhaps he would be worth another chance though? Our squad is not exactly overflowing with goal scoring, attacking midfielders. Do we have any option to bring him back in January? Although, he's probably not going to like coming back here after playing for Celtic in the Champions League in front of big crowds who love him.

Former Scotland striker Billy Dodds on Sportsound

"Elyounoussi is a classy player.

He always hits the box, always gets himself into dangerous positions. He could have a hat-trick and you can see why he's been brought to Celtic.

He's going to be a big player for them in their defence of the title."

Boos at the final whistle
at 17:01 12 Oct 2019

They always boo at Fratton Park when they get a draw.

You'd think their fans would be more appreciative of a point which keeps them 4 points off the bottom 3.

How times change
at 11:21 7 Oct 2019

I was just looking at what the Football League looked like in our first few seasons in it, in an era when English football was dominated by Huddersfield.

In those days, two of the leading clubs in the Manchester area were Bury and Bolton while Manchester United were below Stockport.

little pompey 0 SAINTS 4

We've beaten them by 4 clear goals yet again: something they've never done against us and never will.

Our domination of little pompey continues. The most one-sided derby in the country:

No wonder they never win at Fratton Park. That nerring must bore their players rigid.

Referee for derby game is....
at 15:32 20 Sep 2019

Kevin Friend, who reffed our 2-0 win at Brighton this season and gave one of their players a red card. Last season he reffed our 2-1 win v Spurs and 2-2 draw with Man Utd and the season before that our 4-1 win v Everton and draws v Spurs and Newcastle.

The last games he reffed Pompey, they lost 0-1 at home to West Ham and he gave a Pompey player a red card, 0-2 away to Reading, 1-2 away to Forest, 0-2 away to Spurs and 0-1 away to Stoke. The only time they managed a draw was at home to Sunderland when he gave a red card to a Pompey player in the 9th minute. They've never won a game when he's been the referee. As far as I can see, he has only ever refereed two games at Fratton Park and he gave a red card to a Pompey player in both of them.
