No matter what I do, I cannot seem to shake that flat feeling that I am feeling today, we do not even have a match to look forward to today, as we have to wait until tomorrow to face Arsenal – if you have not already made your predictions in the Pompey predictions league on this match do it here.

Scratching around looking for something to do I have listened to Lauren and Joe Jordan on their views on Arsenal this weekend, as well as watching the reserve highlights – worryingly Linvoy Primus looked to pull up after Chelsea’s second goal – I have also listened Papa Bouba Diop and Glen Johnson and what they have had to say about their moves, all on this on pfcTV.

Diop seemed more interested than Johnson, but as positive as I try to think I cannot understand how a right back and a defensive midfielder are going to benefit us, I just cannot get past this.

Although when I look at the bigger picture, over the course of the 3 months of the transfer window and not just the bitterly disappointing 1 day on Firday far more quality has arrived than has left, so overall we cannot be unhappy, it would be crazy to be unhappy!

With no match I have little to look forward to today, I am just wallowing in my own self-pity, as I say scratching around for something to do. There is not even any football on the box – unless I pay for it – and no one else is around today, they are all out doing this and that but at least I have a bottle of Vodka with my name on it calling me, but then I will probably be wallowing in my own self-pity again tomorrow with a hangover!

Yesterday was quite a day, it was very productive Vital Pompey wise with plenty of interest from you fellas out there, which was really good, lets keep this kind of level of interest up.

After digressing I must get back to my point, bring on the Arsenal?

Matty Taylor, Lauren, Hermann Hreidarsson and to a degree Harry Redknapp have targeted Arsenal as a match that they really want something from, with most thinking we can get something – which we can I reckon.

Last season we should have beaten Arsenal, we went 2-0 up and stayed that way with just over 30 minutes to go, but in the end hung on for a 2-2 draw. But with us a year wiser and overall – with the players that have come in during the summer transfer window – a year better we should be going to Arsenal looking to win.

After a week of frustration at not getting at least the point we deserved against Chelsea last weekend – as well as frustration at the past 24-48 hours with what has gone on transfer wise – we need to match that level of performance against Arsenal tomorrow and hopefully at least put in a great performance, which can ideally bring us 3 points to compensate what has gone on.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
