    Chelsea away for Forest, Mullet if you're about what do you think about that? It should get some tv coverage anyway? A good day out before concentrating on promotion.

        That's a handy away win for Pompey.

              To be honest I want us to sort it out in the league. We're down to third. c**thorpe are flying high and f**king Oldham are ahead now as well. Not so long ago we had an 8 point cushion. Where did it go?


              This is a dangerous tie, we've already beaten a premiership side, if we lose by less than 3 we'll have delusions of grandeur all over.Although, if anyone manages to tackle a chelsea player correctly José will put in a 20 million bid. Schevshenko in a swap bid? We grudgingly accept your terms Mr Abramovich.

                <DIV =introhd>MANCHESTER UNITED v PORTSMOUTH, 3-0 Sat 4 Nov 2006 </DIV>
                <DIV =introtxt style="PADDING-TOP: 2px">Sir Alex Ferguson got the 20th anniversary present he was looking for at Old Trafford as Manchester United ripped Portsmouth to shreds and opened up a three-point lead over Chelsea at the Barclays Premiership summit. </DIV>
                <DIV =txtblk style="PADDING-TOP: 4px">


                Despite his vast achievements during two trophy-ladened decades at United, Ferguson prefers to look forward rather than back and has his sights trained on lifting a ninth league title next May.


                Although the durability of his squad may still be questioned, there are no quibbles about the quality of their play at the moment and, after shattering Bolton Wanderers last week, United laid waste to another early-season high-flier.


                Two goals up after 10 minutes courtesy of a Louis Saha penalty and Cristiano Ronaldo’s blistering free-kick, the Red Devils pounded the Pompey area throughout and only the heroics of goalkeeper David James kept the score down.


                Even James could do little about Nemanja Vidic’s second United goal as the Serbian rose to meet Gary Neville’s cross and power home his side’s third midway through the second half.


                Ferguson was afforded a spontaneous standing ovation by the home fans towards the end but there was no big fanfare for him before the game, just his usual sprightly walk down the touchline.


                But if the United board, and presumably Ferguson himself, had decided to keep the afternoon low-key, it quickly became apparent the Scot’s players had something special planned.


                Having described last week’s thunderous opening at Bolton as the best performance from his team in three or four years, Ferguson could hardly have expected a repeat performance so quickly.


                The hosts were aided in their quest by the absence of Sol Campbell from the Portsmouth starting line-up, the former England defender sent home from the team hotel on Friday night after picking up a stomach bug.


                Campbell has been one of the mainstays of Portsmouth’s impressive start to the season and his experience was badly missed as the visitors found their defence threatened almost constantly from the very first minute.


                There was certainly some sleeping going on in the Pompey rearguard when Neville took a quick throw, releasing Wayne Rooney who had burst into the box totally unmarked.


                Dejan Stefanovic’s desperate attempts to recover his ground only resulted in him clipping Rooney from behind with sufficient force to warrant a penalty award from referee Mike Dean.


                It was United’s first spot-kick of the season and Saha wasted little time in belting home his seventh goal of an impressive campaign.


                Saha was also heavily involved in the Red Devils' second in the sense he was the man clattered by Campbell’s replacement Andy O’Brien to provide Ronaldo with his free-kick opportunity.


                The Portugal winger is making a habit of causing panic with such chances and James had no chance of keeping out the fizzing shot which flew over the wall and dipped into the bottom corner.


                Just as Jussi Jaaskelainen’s was Bolton’s hero seven days ago, so Portsmouth were equally heavily reliant on their keeper.


                As a former Liverpool and Manchester City man, James is hardly likely to receive a warm reception from the Old Trafford faithful.


                Yet there must have been some grudging admiration for the former England man as he pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the hosts at bay.


                Old international team-mates Neville and Rio Ferdinand were among those denied, as was Rooney when the youngster burst into the box.


                On that occasion, James pushed the ball straight into the path of Paul Scholes, whose instant shot was headed off the
                "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."

                  Im delighted with the draw anyway. its the league we need to worry about. after this game we will be out of that distraction with hopefully a good performance, a few pound from TV revenue and we will have let a lot of peopleknow that we are still around!!
                  on this team we fight for that inch, on this team we tear ourselves and everyone around us to pieces for that inch. we claw with our finger nails for that inch. because we know when we add up all those inches, thats going to make the f**king difference between winning and losing

                      Really? Chelski drew with wycombe so theres a danger we might get some kind of result here (we could also lose by 6). Jose is going to have to put a near first team out. They really need a win. A draw/loss at the bridge and the whinging would push him over the edge.


                      As for letting people know we are around...thats ok. Its the players knowing theyre in the spot;ight again (however briefly), thats whatworries me. We need to focus on the league. It would be funny watching Jose approach a keeganesque meltdown afterwards though.
