Post Spurs: Shearer
In the wake of the Spurs debacle, Alan Shearer summed up the current malaise hanging over the club, focussing the energies of the team on the impending Pompey mega-match a week today. Shearer said:
"There is no room for feeling sorry for ourselves. We have to go to work and try to get three points against Portsmouth - and it starts now. I understand why the fans are deflated. We`re exactly the same.
We fully intended to go to Tottenham and get three points out of the game, but it hasn`t worked out that way. My thoughts are now on Portsmouth and trying to win that game."
