Pompey will win this season’s league cup! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts I completely share.

I have had this strong belief that we will win the league cup this season, and it appears that I am not alone.

So far we have been using our squad fully to get us through, but my thinking is that if we get past Blackburn tomorrow – which will be far from easy – then from the quarter finals onwards we will start seeing more of the regular first team starters, this is not to say that the players coming in are not good enough, as they certainly are and most, if not all will play a major part in our season as it continues to unfold.

Some people look at the league cup and think ‘its only the league cup’, but when you do not win many trophies you take what you can get and I would be delighted with a trip to Wembley and a league cup final win – lets not forget this gives us that ticket into the uefa cup?

What the poll asked – How far will we go in the league cup?

How you voted – We will win it! 29%, 4th Round – lose to Blackburn 26%, Quarter finals 15%, Semi finals 15%, Final 15%

Current Poll – We go on the road again this weekend for our latest league match, with a current run of three straight away wins – can we do it again?

It is almost certain that Harry Redknapp will stick with the lone striker – again I can still accept this for away games but would still really like to play two strikers when at home – but who will it be, that is what pompeyrug wants to know with this – ‘it will almost certainly be ‘1 up front’ against the barcodes – but who?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
