Well, that was an anti-climax wasn’t it? At least it was for me.

As we know, earlier this week Pompey’s involvement in the League Cup came to an abrupt end at the first hurdle. AFC Wimbledon came back from a goal down to record a 2-1 win at Fratton Park.

When Christian Burgess put the Blues a goal up it looked good for the 100% record – league and cup – to continue. However, it wasn’t to be and the Dons came back to win it late on, against a Pompey side that wasn’t at our best.

Yes, I know League One is the priority but I’m always disappointed to lose a game, especially a cup one when I love a run. However, most were happy enough with this exit as didn’t want added cup-ties anyway!

Hey ho, so long as we recover positively in the upcoming games and collect a good points return it’ll more than make up for a mediocre exit from a competition that would have paired us with West Ham in the second round.

Most agree, well, with the concentration on the league aspect anyway.


Finally, I wanted to say sorry for my lack of input in recent weeks.

My workload has increased as I’ve grown into my role over the past year and the free time I had was preparing for the Bubba, who has now arrived! My wife gave birth to a gorgeous little girl three weeks ago.

Things are settling down now though, so I’ll hope to get a little more put out again going forward – do bare with me though. Also, the Predictions League WILL be running, but I’ll wait until September to get this underway.
