    Portsmouth v Barnsley Match Thoughts

    A break from the relegation dog fight but none the less a difficult and testing game to navigate .

    After a sluggish start to the season Pompey have found a bit of form and are well placed for the top 6 and could even threaten the top two .

    Probably as difficult a cup tie we could get against a team in a lower league .

    I'm looking for a reaction after tuesday nights abysmal performance and a confidence boosting win , a professional job you might say .

    Woodrow back in the starting lineup would be greatly helpful today and 90 minutes behind him before we head to South London next saturday for a season divining game against Charlton Athletic .

    No if's no but's we should have enough to win the game today at the first time of asking , a replay would be the bare minimum requirement .

    Bloody Hell ! As much as I'd like to see us win , i wouldn't be too dissapointed if we lost , and no disgrace to lose to Pompey , always an hard ground to get something from , I would prefer us to concentrate on avoiding relegation first , Glory hunter's like Pass will disagree "Wembley day art "

    Clash of two of the four FA Cup Semi-Finalists in 2008 with Pompey winning it that year.

    True Dools, true.

    Great Oakwell teeartime atmosphere.
    Macca saying we gave 'em a "slapping". If he said that today the FA would charge him.

    Aye that Chelsea game were mint. Macca called it as tha sez SB, a freezin cold rainy setdy evening and aif o that Chelsea team dint fancy it and got slapped.

    A cant understand why some fans dunt mind guin art ot cup when memories like them are priceless. It's a distinct possibility that we could looiz today and get relegated. Nubdy ez owt to tek then from a dismal season. Ont other hand we could win, get thru and upset one of the big clubs and restore some pride. It were one of the great nights at oakwell was that Chelsea match. Summat to tell thi grand kids abart.

    I was hyperventilating those last 20 minutes when Chelsea laid siege and had us trapped more or less in our own penalty box .

    Our team that night were bloody magnificent and won deservedly .

    My standout memory isn't of the goal but one Robert Hassell who with minutes left threw himself in front of Joe Cole I think it was and took the full impact of a shot and deflected it away , he'd have died before giving Cole a sniff at goal that night .

    One of the great nights at a time when personally my life wasn't in a great place and that cup run helped me enormously to turn things around .
