More on Preston defeat

Just to prove we can take it as well as dish it out, here is an article sent in by a Pompey fan.

All I can say is, enjoy it while you can, because the only celebrating you will be making over the rest of the season is when Saints drop points, because you won't be picking up many yourself!

Sorry Saints Lose Again



With Portsmouth playing earlier this weekend, attentions fell to Portsmouth fans second favourite team, Saint's opponents!

On this occasion that was Preston and as predicted former Ipswich boss

George Burley didn't enjoy a happy day.

Against a backdrop of Boardroom resignations and infighting, Burley's charges needed to step up the performance on the pitch. The club's future hangs precariously as much-needed funding has failed to materialise and

he parachute payments the club have received since relegation are set to dry up.

But Preston were simply too good for Burley's misfits, running away 3-1 with Premiership target Dave Nugent showing his class.

The result leaves Southampton languishing outside the playoff places, at a crucial time with a tough run of fixtures to come.

Clap clap, fair play, good luck for the rest of the season, you will need it! And Pompey will probably lose every remaining game but... And a special titter for SaintGeorge who has criticised the quality of my 'review' lol. I did watch the game SaintGeorge, you were rampant first half but not good enough to put the ball in the net, second half only one team in it, running you ragged by the 60th minute.
