Managerless Pompey entertain Fulham this afternoon, in a match which has been overshadowed by last nights events.

Vital Quotes:

Harry has gone, Pompey have lost there charismatic manager once again, financial constraits are the reasons being cited, although this is true, I also feel lining of pockets comes into it somewhat also.
‘These foreign managers don’t know how to manage’ That was the cry when all the money was available to the big boys, can’t beat ’em, join ’em springs to mind.
Anyway, this is not about Redknapp, this is Portsmouths match preview, and as yet we have no quotes from Pompey’s ‘new’ manager, just Sol (once of Spurs) declaring we need to get back on track against Fulham after our European flop.

Pompey Team News:

Little is a definite no-no, his bacon string has popped once again.
No news on Jonno’s hip injury as yet, not a lot of news beside the obvious really! Davis is an obvios miss with suspension, Hughes should be fit, and Diarra close to a return.

Player to watch: Defoe

I feel tis is the man Harry will turn to again in January of all our players, how he reacts to his departure remains to be seen.

Fulham Team News:

No real injury doubts for Chelseas number 1 team, Kamara remains sidelined, about it really.

Player to watch: Bullard

Seems to be Fulhams heartbeat, possesses a good free-kick and passing range.
