Sulley Muntari has told sky sports news that he believes we could challenge for a top 4 place, well at least he cannot see why not: ‘we can do it, we can be in fourth position we can be there, fourth, fifth we can do it.

‘At the moment we are winning games and the way I see it with training and commitment, we can do it’.

To hear a Pompey player openly expressing the thought that he thinks we could finish in the top 4 of the premier league is absolutely amazing, I never thought I would hear such words said – but these words that are being said could be true.

It is a sign of how far we have come, that people are not only talking of, but actually expecting a uefa cup finish via the league – and I do not necessarily mean Pompey fans, the media and pundits are openly expressing this, with many, including Alan Shearer starting to say that we might just be able to do what Muntari thinks – finish in the top 4.

There is still a long way to go in the season, but after a quarter of it – yep its over a quarter gone – we are right up there, so providing we can not suffer too much of a ‘blip’ when we do go through a rough patch you never know?

Should we still there or thereabout after 20 matches, belief will grow, if we are still in with a chance after 30 then this belief will grow into expectation. To be honest I would be more than content with a uefa cup place, but would I turn down a champions league place? Of course I would not…

Yep the argument of being ‘ready for it’ would then crop up, but let’s cross this bridge if and when we get to it.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
