The Pompey View

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 18/08/2000

In our match previews we will be bringing to you the opposition's views on the game ahead. The trip from Grimsby to Portsmouth is one of the longest in both teams schedules so on behalf of Mariners fans, The Fishy asked the Pompey Rivals site a few questions ahead of tomorrow's game.

Fishy: Who should the Mariners most fear in the Pompey side on Saturday?

Ooohhh tricky one to start. Everyone and no one. On paper we have a stronger squad than you, yet Grimsby seem to have developed the knack of getting the better of us lately. However, I would say watch out for Lee Mills our new £1.2 m striker from Bradford. It's his home debut, he wants 20 goals this season and he sees Town as a good place to start.

Who (if any) of the Grimsby players have Pompey heard of, and who do you fear most?

Grimsby players, Grimsby players ....mmmm another tricky one Rob. Is that Tony Ford still with you? (Only joking, only joking), always rated him when he played us. (Consults News of the Word annual). Looks like a WBA 'cast-offs' XI to me. That Steve Livingstone, he's quite useful?

What was the most significant result in your opinion from the opening games last weekend and who do you think will win the first division?

Most of them were fairly predictable, or within the bounds of reason. I thought Watford winning at Huddersfield was pretty significant. I thought they'd bomb. Sheff Weds are to be congratulated too... looks like Wolves could be 'not quites' again. I think Birmingham will win the league.

Realistically what are you expecting from this season?

My heart says Champions, well, all right, play offs. My head says 12th. Pompey have to remind the world all over again we actually could be quite a big club.

How attractive an away fixture do you regard Blundell Park?

On a scale of 1-10? Two! (Only being honest, I've got a bit of affection for the old place cos my dad was born there)

What do you think of The Fishy?

Excellent Rob and I commend all Grimsby followers everywhere to tune in on the hour, every hour as I am sure it is the first place for all Grimsby news, views and opinions (That'll be five pounds please, Rob ;->).

What's your team line-up going to be on Saturday?

Hoult, Derry, Primus, Moore, Edinburgh, Hughes, Thogersen, Curtis, Harper, Bradbury, Mills (4-4-2)
