We have not visited the world of Mark Lawrenson for a while, the so-called BBC’s ‘expert pundit’, so I thought why not eh…

Looking at his column on BBC Sport, Lawro’s predictions – here, I saw that he had us down for a draw against Spurs this weekend, which was odd as I do not recall him having us down for many things other than defeats! Although in looking I also noticed he had us down for a 1-1 against Wolves, and we won.

So, this is what he said: ‘I hope Harry Redknapp gets the reception he deserves at Portsmouth – and that is an extremely good one because of what he did for that club.

‘He got them out of the Championship, brought in brilliant players (all of whom were sold for a profit) and won the FA Cup. He got out when he saw the writing on the wall and you can’t blame him.

‘I just hope a few mindless idiots don’t ruin the day. On the pitch, I reckon Pompey will pick up a point – and it’ll be a great help for Paul Hart to have Avram Grant’s experience with him from now on.

‘Verdict: 1-1’

I am glad that he remembered in the final throws of his speech that the game is about more than just this one man and we are involved too!

What do we think guys? Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in the predictions league – Spurs (h) – 17/10/09.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
