I would back Pompey to finish 6th this season! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from muffdaddy1983’s poll are thoughts that I share in as much as I think we could well be in or around that kind of area.

Going into this season I was always of the opinion that we had to match, or better our 9th place finish from last season otherwise I would be disappointed.

As tough as the league will be this season, even with what many could have viewed as a disappointing start to the season, but more in as much as we maybe did not get the points we might have deserved, we are still there or thereabouts, only a few points away from the top 2 or 3 let alone anything else.

My own expectations for the season are a European place, something I feel that we can achieve so long as we address our away form – which hopefully the win over Blackburn will prove a catalyst – so my thinking is that we could still finish somewhere between 4th and 7th/8th, so if we do I will be very happy.

What the poll asked – Where do you think Pompey will finish this season?

How you voted – 6th 24%, Bottom half of the table 22%, 8th 20%, 7th 12%, 1st 11%, 5th 5%, Relegated 4%, 4th %, 2nd 0%, 3rd 0%

Current Poll – Kanu stayed after the long drawn out saga over the summer, what is more he has stayed and played – and started – just about every game this season.

He has once again been superb in the opening months of the season, with Harry Redknapp often giving him glowing reports, but does he at times play too often, would you sometimes prefer a different player had a game instead, this is what pompeyrug wants to know with this – ‘Redknapp loves Kanu; I mean he really loves him – do you?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
