The Pompey Predictions League is very much part of this site now isn’t it? Would it be the same without it – I’m not sure it would to be honest with you.

A spin off cup competition got underway with a defeat at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Having taken the lead Pompey were on to surprise Cardiff but Neil Warnock’s Championship side came back to win 2-1 after extra time and end the Blues’ League Cup run at the first hurdle.

Over to uspompeyfan with his first cup update to the 2017-18 season…

The first cup game saw Pompey travel to Championship side, Cardiff in the EFL Cup. The side didn’t disgrace, falling in extra time, after taking the lead.

The game may have caught our predicting team unaware with a decreased list of predictors; however, there was plenty of drama in the USPF household. The prediction is for the result and not 90 minutes. There would have been a bonus for saying draw at full time and naming the correct winner AET or winner after penalties.

Dasha therefore failed in her quest for points for that very reason and is duly fed up with life, like any teenage girl has a right to be, but tough, Rug’s rules (and he was the arbitrator in this situation).

Next week is the Checkatrade (unless they went bust sponsoring it last season) Cup first game, but before then we have a fun affair in the league at Oxford……

If you want to see the table via the forum thread click here.

Keep on keeping on guys.

Anyone can enter at any time remember. Just because you missed out on predicting for the game against the Bluebirds it’s by no means too late so join in now, for the first time perhaps in the cup game against Fulham.

This comes at Fratton Park against Fulham on Wednesday.

However, in the meantime, do not forget the League One competition and predict for the trip at Oxford this afternoon.

As we’re always keen to make it as easy for you as possible – as we want PLENTY to get involved – the forum link for your prediction to be made for this game is below… a little lower are the remainder of the games for this month too.
