Pompey Preview: Donkey on Sunday

With the Sky Live clash at Fratton Park slowly looming, both Joe Kinnear and Tony Adams have had their say on the state of play. The Pompey boss was first to sound off, sensibly summing up the current dog-eat-dog capability of the Premier League, where anyone other than the media whores of the 'Big Four` (spit) can beat each other. Adams said:

"We`ve had Newcastle watched and researched. We`ve looked at them, but there is a thin line between about 14 clubs in the Premier League. Anyone can beat anyone at the moment and we`re all much of a muchness. Newcastle have got some good players, but so have we."

There`s a balance and we`re striving for that balance at the moment. We`ve been very offensive and lost games trying to win them. There`s a positive in there somewhere. I would rather have that situation than a team that shows no passion or no commitment and does not create any chances at home. We`ve been leaving ourselves a bit open so we`re trying to get the right balance."

I have every confidence that Tony will get the right balance at Pompey. The likes of Newcastle are there for the taking. If the defence holds then Pompey will definitely win!
