Oxford are a talented bunch, but have definitely started off this year on the wrong foot. Losing to Barnsley wasn't too shocking for them, but personally I was surprised how bad they seemed against Fleetwood Town. No goals scored yet in the league, however they did defeat Coventry City yesterday in the EFL Cup 2-0. Still, this team is dangerous and I'd feel a little better if they had lost again yesterday instead of advancing. 

Personally, this is the lineup I'd like to see from Pompey this weekend. 

MacGillivray
Brown---------Whatmough-----------Haunstrup------------Burgess
Lowe-------Clarke--------Close
Curtis
Pitman----------Chaplin/Hawkins

What to watch for: 1 word...possession.  We have been awful this year holding onto the ball, and I think they are going to have to focus on that in this game, especially if we grab another early lead. The midfield has been awful retaining possession, and so I need to see some form of teamwork this weekend in working the ball around the pitch. 

Prediction: We will certainly score against this bad, Oxford defense, and I do think that it's likely we continue on our good run. Portsmouth 2-0 Oxford United

I'm impressed that Wigan play themselves this week. :)

Fixed. And they weren't playing themselves, I was just stating their name and place in the Championship. Wigan.

I'm almost confident going into an away game - I haven't experienced that feeling in about four years. We've been actually semi-competent for long periods of games against three of the better sides in the division, and actually look to pose a threat. Reading are shite and will certainly be in the relegation mix with us come April.

Nailed on Reading win then...

Leeds United 0-1 Rotherham

Bielsa downed by Paul Chuckle.

Coupon buster.

Its refreshing to see members not getting carried away. You're meant to be chanting "Allez!" and creating threads called "I would leave it all for a bit of Bielsa!!!"

The average IQ and maturity level is significantly higher in the Football League forum compared to that dross in the EPL one.

This aged perfectly. xD

Today is Birmingham v Swans. I haven't been impressed at all with the ham, and wouldn't be surprised if they lost by 2 goals. 

don't call them 'the ham' xD

haha - yeah, probably doesn't translate well, but there is a large city called Birmingham not far from me, and everyone calls it 'The Ham'. I, personally, think it's dumb, but I also don't like Birmingham City. xD
