Pompey’s third game in eight days sees the boys visit The Emirates to face Arsenal. Kick-off is 3pm. Join us here on Vital Pompey to discuss the game as it unfolds

Arsenal to slaughter Pompey lambs, Wengers boys to rip Hart out of Pompey, Pompey to be put to the sword ? Jeez I’ve read it all this morning.

I think don’t think any of us really expect anything out of this afternoons encounter but if we stand any chance at all of grabbing a lucky point it’ll be due to Arsenals over confidence – It worries me really as they are beginning to sound a little too much like their neighbours for my liking!

So claim down you Gooners, there’s a lot of respect for you guys in Pompey so if you are gonna thump us, just so some respect!

Anyway without further ado

‘Stand up.. If you hate the Spurs, Stand up .. If you hate the Spurs?’
