Transfer : Portsmouth – Wigan Athletic


Jamal Lowe has completed a move to Championship side Wigan for an undisclosed fee.


The 25-year-old winger scored 29 goals in 119 appearances during his two-and-a-half years at Fratton Park.

He arrived at Pompey from Hampton & Richmond in January 2017 and helped them secure promotion in his first season.

Lowe netted twice on a memorable day at Notts County that secured a spot in League One for Paul Cook’s side.

He also scored a stunning strike at Wembley back in March, as the Blues beat Sunderland on penalties to lift the EFL Trophy.

Transfer : Portsmouth – Leyton Orient


Louis Dennis has joined League Two side Leyton Orient for an undisclosed fee.


The 26-year-old forward made eight appearances for Pompey after signing from Bromley last summer.

Most of his appearances came in the EFL Trophy, with his only Blues goal arriving in a last 16 tie at Southend.

Dennis’ impressive performance in that game saw him collect the competition’s Player of the Round award.

He also featured in a league loss at Oxford and both of the FA Cup ties against Queens Park Rangers.

Leyton Orient secured the National League title last season to return to the EFL following a two-year absence.

Everyone at Pompey would like to thank Louis for his contribution to the club and we wish him well for the future.

Transfer : Doncaster Rovers – Portsmouth


Pompey have signed striker John Marquis from Doncaster for an undisclosed fee.


The 27-year-old – who had a short loan spell at Fratton Park in 2013 – has penned a three-year deal, with a club option for a further 12 months.

Marquis began his career with Millwall and was handed his professional debut by Jackett at Bristol Rovers in 2009.

He had several stints out on loan, including a two-month stay at Pompey in the first half of the 2013/14 campaign.

Marquis netted two goals in six appearances, grabbing a consolation in a 4-2 defeat at York and then scoring in an EFL Trophy win at Oxford.

He signed for Rovers in the summer of 2016 and struck 67 times in 153 appearances during three years in south Yorkshire.

Twenty-six of those goals arrived last term, as Doncaster suffered a penalty shoot-out defeat to Charlton in the League One play-offs.

Match Report

Highlights

Friendly




Brett Pitman and Oli Hawkins both bagged a brace, as Pompey wrapped up their pre-season schedule with a comfortable win at Woking.

The former converted an early penalty he had won himself and soon doubled the lead from a free-kick.

It was Hawkins’ first action of the summer and the striker added a goal in each half, while Manny Parry and Moussa Dierra both netted for the National League hosts.

There were plenty of first team players involved, with Hawkins and James Bolton both returning from injury.

The heavy rain had subsided by the time kick-off came around and Pompey took an almost immediate lead.

Moussa Dierra brought down PITMAN inside the box, with the skipper dusting himself off to coolly slot home.

It was a bright start from the Blues and Ben Close fired over following a neat and patient passing move.

Hawkins then raced onto a long pass from Haji Mnoga and was cleaned out by Cards keeper Sam Howes.

Referee Charles Breakspear might have reached for a red card in a competitive fixture, but instead stuck with awarding a free-kick.

But there was further punishment for Woking, with PITMAN drilling a 20-yard shot into the bottom corner.

And the visitors found themselves three goals ahead with just 19 minutes on the clock after Andy Cannon had done well to win possession.

The ball was eventually played out to Bolton on the right and he drilled a low cross into the box, with HAWKINS sliding in to score.

Chances started to dry up following that early goal flurry, although Matt Casey did well to block Dave Tarpey’s effort.

But Woking reduced their deficit just before the break after a Josh Casey free-kick had caused chaos in the Blues box.

The ball was stabbed towards goal and Alex Bass made a smart save, with Parry following up to convert from close range.


Half Time

Woking 1

Portsmouth 3


Pitman had a cheeky attempt to secure a hat-trick straight from the kick-off, with his effort dipping over the bar.

Pompey’s skipper then thought he should have had another penalty after hitting the turf when trying to reach Brandon Haunstrup’s cross, although this time his appeals fell on deaf ears.

There were not an abundance of clear-cut openings, but Mnoga made a well-timed challenge to deny Jake Hyde from inside the box.

The game continued to drift along, with a number of substitutions for the hosts not doing anything to help the flow.

Pompey were looking comfortable in possession, though, and content to pass the ball around without providing much of a threat.

Hawkins did send a dangerous ball across the face of goal on 78 minutes, but neither Mnoga or Josh Flint could get on the end of it.

Cannon then teed-up Pitman for a blocked shot, with the midfielder collecting the loose ball and being frustrated in his attempts to find space for a shot.

The Blues soon managed to add a fourth goal of the evening, however, with HAWKINS sliding in at the back post to convert Pitman’s pass.

But it was Woking who had the final say, as Dierra glanced home Max Kretzschmar’s corner at the near post for a consolation.

Alita : Battle Angel

Trailer


RATED7.4 Plot

Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.

Summary

On the whole it was visually very good but left me ultimately disappointed. Style over substance and no proper ending. I assume there will be a sequel.
