Ryan - When we last met, we drew 3-3 at Elland Road with Andy O’Brien gifting you a late own goal. Has anything changed at Pompey since then?

Pompey Pages - Unfortunately we’re still leaking in goals and before last weekend we’d concended 12 goals in 4 goals, but with Greg Halford returning on-loan, and Ritchie De Laet joining from United, then hopefully our defensive worries are in the past. There is still great spirit amongst players and fans but without funds to spend in January, and a heavily depleted squad we’re slowly sliding down the table.

Ryan - What did you make of the Leeds performance that day?

PP - To be honest they were a quality outfit but the defensive frailties in the dying minutes were woeful but we obviously enjoyed every minute of it!

Ryan - Where are you reallistically expecting to finish at the end of the season and what have you made of your season so far?

PP - Most of us would be happy with a mid-table finish after our money and squad problems. There is constant news about a promotion push still being on the books but to be honest we’d have to win 90% of those games in order to really push and become a big threat. We’ve still got a couple of games in hand though so hopefully they might boost us up the table.

Ryan - Who should we be looking out for in your squad?

PP - Liam Lawrence is a key figure at Pompey, and David Nugent is the obvious threat, but watch out for John Utaka – he’s long due a good performance and on his day he can really threaten defenses.

Ryan - If you could sign one current Leeds player for Pompey, who would it be?

PP - Although I’m sure we’d all love Andy O’Brien back at Pompey, especially after gifting us last time around, but Becchio could probably do a great job next to David Nugent – sadly no chance of that happening.

Ryan - The Championship 2010/11 – 3 up, 3 down?

PP - QPR, Cardiff and Leeds I reckon, I still think Bristol City are looking very shifty and our old keeper David James is having problems, I reckon they’ll be pulled in to it with Preston and Scunthorpe.

Ryan - Finally, what’s your prediction for the game? There’s guaranteed to be goals so I’m going for a 2-2 draw!

PP - Going for a cheeky 2-1 win to Pompey – Nugent and Utaka to bag the goals!

Thanks again to The Pompey Pages for taking part and all the best for the rest of the season.

    When did we loan Portsmouth De Laet? In fact I wasn’t even aware he was on our books in the first place.

  • Dje

    A leaky defense, short on squad players, poor run of form ~ the signs are look good for us.

    Or just adding to the potential disappointment?!

  • richard

    We really need a win cos im sick off drawing games.

  • Dubwhite

    Worried about the fatigue factor after Wednesdays game. Apart from Kilkenny this midfield has been playin most of our games I just hope it’s not one too much.

  • TheReaper08

    My work location means I know quite few Pompey fans. Really hoping for a good result but like Dubwhite concerned about about tiredness.

  • Tim Wilsom

    Sell Kanu, pay the bloody power bill. Good results from the chasing pack, another flippin draw for us
