Adding insult to injury!
Kicking you when you are down!
Rubbing salt into the wound!
Taking the p**s!

Add your own phrase for what you feel best describes the offering we got from The Pompey Site on Thursday – when it returned online after being pulled for non-payments for a few hours.

What am I talking about you might say?

Well, it is this little number about Asmir Begovic

Amazing Asmir

Before this season Asmir Begovic had made just two Premier League appearances.

But anyone watching him make a string of fine saves against West Ham on Tuesday night could be forgiven for thinking he had been protecting Pompey`s goal for years.

The 22-year-old Bosnia keeper has featured 15 times for the Blues in all competitions this season – looking more assured with every one.

And he was in inspired form against the Hammers, making superb saves to deny Frank Nouble, Alessandro Diamanti and Jack Collison.

“It all happened very quickly,” Begovic told pfcTV. “But that’s what I’m there for and luckily I was able to make the saves.

“We were confident and looking to get the three points – but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.

“We had a lot of the ball but they threatened a few times. We’ve got to take the positives – we didn’t lose.

“I’m getting used to the pace of the game which is very high at this level.

“I’m enjoying it and learning all the time. I’ve got a great coach in David Coles who always keeps me on my toes.”

You were not the only one enjoying Asmir, you were one of the shining lights in an otherwise miserable season yet you, and apparently without your say so let alone the managers, are being shipped off to be a no.2 for the foreseeable future I would guess?

Rub it in a little more eh, the guy ‘looks’ like he will be sold – and most likely at a knockdown price – to Spurs yet we continue to big him up!

I would almost put money on David Coles moving onto Spurs, not that I am having a pop at them to be fair, soon enough – to be honest I have always been surprised that is has not happened already.

Although I am sure there is still time to include him in some deal, even though technically Begovic should not be allowed to joined Spurs as (and as was pointed out by someone in the forum) a lower league club was denied permission to do this earlier in the week do to the ‘3 team rule’…

Then again the premier league plays by its own rules!
