Over the Christmas period we played 4 games – against Liverpool, Arsenal, Boro and most recently yesterday against Reading. From these 4 games we took 4 points, a return that Harry Redknapp was relatively pleased with.

He told sky sports after the Reading game: ‘we have had four games over the period.

‘Liverpool away, what can you expect to get there? Arsenal at home, where we took a point and the one disappointment was Middlesbrough.

‘We would have been delighted with five points but we will settle for four. We have got 34 points now and it is a great position to be in’.

The defeat to Boro really hurt us, this was almost – as much as you can have such a thing in this league – a 3 point banker, so to have got nothing from it was very poor, even worse than the performance itself… but we have moved on from that, we reacted in the right way against Reading now we have to build on this.

We now have the transfer window to start working in and the welcome break of the FA cup next weekend. This game against Ipswich will not be easy at all but it will be interesting to see who plays and who does not – as this should indicate who will and who wont still have a future with Pompey beyond this month…
