Ease The Pressure On The Heart Rate


Well, one thing we can guarantee with Pompey is the fact we’ll never do things the easy way.

Saturday’s victory at Bradford ensured we remained top of League One – Sunderland are very much the side to watch though having closed to within three points with a superior goal difference and game in hand – but it wasn’t easy at Valley Parade.

Blues owner Michael Eisner, whilst obviously being content with the points, is longing for the time when we make things easier. That would clearly put less pressure on the heart.

Oh, how we’d all want it to be that easy, eh! But that isn’t the Pompey way and we know it. Some social media posts think Eisner perhaps needs to get used to it too.

1-0 or 5-0, you still only get three-points come the end of it don’t you. So, it doesn’t really matter, in many ways, how the result comes does it? Obviously, it goes without saying, we would like to win having impressed. Then again, once more, it’s the result – a win – that really counts.

Pressure off the old ticker, I’d be happy with that. Yet that isn’t the Pompey way is it. However, what is; so far this season, is victories on the road as Saturday’s win over Bradford was the Blues’ seventh so far – Eisner isn’t going to be unhappy with that at all.
