Just seen my favourite comedian Dave Gorman at Portsmouth Guildhall.

Always difficult to describe a Dave Gorman show to anyone who hasn’t seen him as there are no jokes as such (apart from the best giraffe joke ever) more observations on life given as a PowerPoint presentation.

His unique style and for me the lack of political bias is what makes him the best comedian around.

Support act of Nick Doody was also very good.

Match Report

Checkatrade Trophy


Portsmouth 3    2 Tottenham
Hotspur U21

Pompey fought from behind to beat Tottenham’s under-21 side and secure top spot in Southern Group A of the Checkatrade Trophy.

Phoenix Patterson had given the visitors the lead against the run of play in a first half that could best be described as flat.

But the Blues were much improved after the interval and Andre Green opened his account for the club to get them back on level terms.

There was only going to be one winner from that point, with substitutes Gareth Evans and Oli Hawkins completing the job before Harvey White grabbed a late consolation.

Kenny Jackett changed his entire starting 11 following Saturday’s comfortable FA Cup victory at Maidenhead.

Bradley Lethbridge was handed his debut up front, while fellow academy player Haji Mnoga – who appeared in the previous Checkatrade Trophy game at Crawley – had another chance to impress.

There were also starts for on-loan wingers Green – back from a knee injury – and David Wheeler, with Louis Dennis completing the forward line.

With it being Pompey’s nearest match to Armistice Day, the club commemorated the occasion before kick-off.

Wreaths were laid by both captains and a video of D-Day veteran John Jenkins MBE reading the Ode of Remembrance was played on the big screen.

The sides – with the hosts having poppies embroidered into their shirts – then lined-up for a minute’s silence, accompanied by the Last Post.

There was not much to excite a smaller than usual crowd in the first half, although the hosts were largely in control.

They did not do much to threaten Alfie Whiteman, however, with the keeper making a comfortable save to deny Green.

And Tottenham broke the deadlock against the run of play on 20 minutes, as Patterson latched on to a through ball and bore down on goal.

Luke McGee was quickly off his line to make the save, but the loose ball was collected by the winger, who slotted home.

Lethbridge was causing a nuisance, although after doing well to bundle his way into the box, he was eventually crowded out.

Dennis also had an effort blocked, while Ben Close fired narrowly over after winning the ball on the edge of the box.

There was little threat at the other end of the pitch and when Kazaiah Sterling broke clear, skipper Christian Burgess was quickly across to make a perfectly-timed sliding challenge.

The hosts perked up a bit towards the end of the half and Wheeler glanced a corner inches past the post, while an inventive Burgess header drew a save from Whiteman.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

Tottenham U21 1


The action had dragged before the interval, but it soon livened up after it, with a series of chances arriving at both ends of the pitch.

Anton Walkes – playing against his former club – was first to try his luck, with a low effort that took a slight deflection to divert it just off target.

But an equaliser did arrive moments later, as a corner from Dennis was nodded on by Burgess and GREEN forced the ball home at the far post.

Tottenham came close to an instant reply, though, with McGee getting down well to tip Patterson’s shot around the post.

And a breathless period of play was completed by Close seeing his deflected effort held by Whiteman.

Pompey were seeing more of the ball, but it still took another superb challenge by Burgess inside the box to stop Sterling getting a shot away.

Jackett made all three of his substitutions on 65 minutes, with Green, Lethbridge and Mnoga replaced by Evans, Hawkins and Matt Clarke.

And EVANS’ first contribution was to fire the Blues into the lead, smashing a free-kick through the wall after Dennis had been fouled on the edge of the box.

The game slowed slightly after that, although it was still the hosts who were well on top as the action neared a conclusion.

They made sure of the victory on 81 minutes, with Wheeler getting free down the right and cutting the ball back for HAWKINS to prod home from close range.

White did pull one back with a fine free-kick after Danny Rose had committed a foul, although Tottenham were unable to find a leveller.

The visitors could, however, console themselves with the fact that Crawley’s defeat to Gillingham means they join the Blues in the knockout stages.

Plot

A young woman, her uptight step sister and her best friend use their savings for a long anticipated dream trip to Paris, which turns out to be a big disappointment. When they decide to take a break from their lousy tour and duck into the lobby of a luxury hotel, one of them is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress.

Summary

It's a teen movie and I don't really reflect it's target audience but I usually love these cheesy films. Selena Gomez is as hot as hell but the film itself is average at best.

Match Report

FA Cup 1st Round


Maidenhead United 0    4 Portsmouth

Pompey eased their way into the second round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over Maidenhead.

But the National League strugglers made the Blues work hard for their opening goal at York Road, with Ben Thompson finally netting just before the break.

It was less of a struggle in the second half, though, with Oli Hawkins, Jamal Lowe and David Wheeler all finding the target.

Kenny Jackett made a single change from the side that won at Bradford in the league the previous week.

Nathan Thompson – back from a one-match ban – replaced Anton Walkes at right-back, with the visitors clearly taking the game seriously.

Gareth Evans skippered the side on his 150th appearance for the club, while former Pompey striker Ryan Bird was among the Maidenhead substitutes.

Both captain’s laid a wreath on the pitch before kick-off and the teams wore poppies on their shirts, while a minute’s silence was held to commemorate Remembrance weekend.

When the action got underway, it was Pompey who dominated possession without being able to carve open many clear-cut chances.

Carl Pentney was being well protected, although the keeper comfortably claimed a Hawkins effort before punching clear under pressure from the same player.

The first noteworthy incident came on 18 minutes, when the tricky Ronan Curtis got free down the right and crossed for Hawkins, whose header was deflected behind.

And they should really have forged ahead midway through the first half, with Tom Naylor the guilty party.

He failed to connect with an ambitious over-head attempt, but when Evans’ shot was parried into his path moments later, the midfielder turned the ball against the crossbar from a few yards out.

Maidenhead then came close to scoring again soon after, with Ayo Obileye’s strike crashing against the post.

Remy Clerima was also causing problems with a series of long throws, while Nathan Thompson was unable to beat Pentney from a tight angle at the other end.

Pompey won a succession of corners as the half progressed and the heavens opened, although were being frustrated in their attempts to test Pentney.

But the deadlock was finally broken just before the interval, as Curtis whipped in a low cross and Ben THOMPSON fired home to open his account for the club.


Half Time

Maidenhead United 0

Portsmouth 1


The second half was slow to really click into gear, although it was still the Blues seeing most of the ball.

And they doubled their lead on 55 minutes, with Evans crossing from the right and HAWKINS sending a header looping over Pentney and into the net.

That gave the visitors a cushion, but their lead was even more comfortable when a third went in on the hour mark.

Ben Thompson sent a free-kick into the box and Jack Whatmough nodded the ball down for LOWE, who turned and sent a neat finish into the bottom corner.

Jackett decided the time was right to make a double change, with Lowe and Evans withdrawn for Brett Pitman and Wheeler.

Pompey’s play was more patient with such a commanding advantage, but they were still looking to get forward.

And when they were unable to find a path through the Magpies defence, Ben Thompson hit a long-range shot that was saved by Pentney.

The keeper also kept out a header from Pitman after he had been spotted in the box by Lee Brown.

Pompey’s captain also fired a shot narrowly over the bar after Nathan Thompson won the ball back when a fine passing move came to an end.

The same duo combined again moments later and this time Pentney was forced into a decent save low to his left to keep out Pitman’s sweet first time strike.

But it was WHEELER who wrapped things up on 83 minutes, stooping to head home after Brown’s free-kick had been superbly saved.

There was still time for Pitman to steer narrowly wide following a mad scramble in the box, but the visitors could be happy with their afternoon’s work.
