Bring on the Second Leg

19 09 2008

OK, Pompey did it, a great 2-0 win at home last night.  Now we just have the task of not losing 3-0 during the away leg. 

The performance was probably one of the best that I have seen from us, and Diarras goal was a classic.  OK, we were lucky with their penalty hitting the bar, and Defoes penalty was a bit rubbish (Obviously he was never told as a schoolboy to follow up on your run just incase) but he looked lively and dangerous all night.

Other good points from the night included Belhadj down the left who is looking a little useful (I hope that we sign him properly at the end of his loan spell) and Armand Traore putting in another good performance, I suspect that he will be back on his way to Arsenal at the end of the season.

Player of the night though was Lassiana Diarra who was busy in midfield, making tackles when he needed to and taking play forward at every available opportunity.

Can’t wait for the 2nd leg in Portugal now, I wish I was going.
