The Alphabet Killer

Trailer


RATED5.2 Plot

In Rochester, a pre-teen girl is abducted, raped, and murdered. Detective Megan Paige investigates: she works long hours obsessively, and soon she's seeing visions of the dead girl. The FBI profiles the killer as a spontaneous drifter, lucky not to get caught; Megan thinks he's local and a methodical planner. She notes that the victim's first and last names and the place the body was left start with "C." When a second murder follows the same pattern, Megan is vindicated, but her obsessions get the best of her, and her mental state impedes her work. With the help of medication, therapy, and a friend, can she regain her equilibrium and catch the alphabet killer?

Summary

This was better than expected, not great but not bad even if the bad guy is a bit obvious. Featuring one of my favourite actors in Timothy Hutton and also the only, to date, topless scene from Eliza Dushku..

Transfer : Burton Albion – Portsmouth


Pompey have signed winger Marcus Harness from Burton for an undisclosed fee.


The 23-year-old has penned a three-year deal at Fratton Park, with the club holding an option for a further 12 months.

Harness joined Burton from Coventry as a teenager and gained experience with several loan spells, most recently spending a season with Port Vale.

He made a total of 83 appearances for the Brewers and scored a hat-trick in their 4-0 victory at Rochdale last term.

Harness was part of the Burton side that were narrowly beaten by the Blues on home soil back in April.

He ended his career at the Pirelli Stadium by scoring a stunning strike against Premier League side Sheffield United in a friendly on Tuesday evening.

Match Report

Highlights

Friendly




Goals from Eoin Teggart and Brett Pitman ensured Pompey maintained their winning start to pre-season with victory over Bognor.

Both of the visitors’ goals came in a first half they dominated, with a couple of neat finishes putting them on top at Nyewood Lane.

But they probably should have been further ahead at the break, as the Blues struck the crossbar on three separate occasions.

Former Fratton forward Dan Smith pulled one back following the restart, but the hosts could not find an equaliser.

There was a mixture of youth and experience in the Pompey line-up, with the likes of Pitman and Christian Burgess accompanied by a smattering of academy players.

It was Bognor who made the brighter start, although Burgess and centre-back partner Matt Casey protected Alex Bass’ goal.

And the visitors soon began to move through the gears, with Andy Cannon sending a fierce shot dipping against the underside of the crossbar.

The Rocks then had an opportunity of their own, with Stuart Green unable to turn home Jimmy Muitt’s cross and seeing his blushes spared by an offside flag.

Pompey took the lead from the resulting free-kick, as TEGGART cut inside from the right and curled a shot into the top corner.

And the advantage was soon doubled on 25 minutes, with Leon Maloney doing well to get into the box and find Pitman.

He managed to dig out a shot that again hit the underside of the bar and Teggart was unable to convert the loose ball.

Amazingly, the same piece of woodwork was struck for a third time before the interval, although the skipper this time hit the top of it with a dinked attempt.

But PITMAN did have a goal on 34 minutes, hitting a first-time finish into the bottom corner after being slipped in by Haji Mnoga.

The right-back might have got on the scoresheet himself before the break, but his effort was deflected into the arms of Rocks keeper Charlie Searle.

The average age of the visitors was brought down at the start of the second half, as Pitman and Bryn Morris made way for youngsters Harry Anderson and Ethan Robb.

And Bognor soon managed to pull a goal back, with Smith on hand to find the target after Bass had made a good save.

Muitt had a chance to level a few minutes later, although the forward dragged his shot wide of the post.

The Rocks were certainly enjoying more of the ball since the restart, although were too often let down by a poor final delivery.

Smith was sent through on goal on 73 minutes, but former team-mate Bass was quickly off his line to make the save.

It was bit quieter at the other end of the pitch, although a dangerous delivery from Brandon Haunstrup did lead to a corner.

Cannon was the player to send it into the mixer, with Burgess – now wearing the armband – nodding the ball narrowly past the post.

A few late substitutions disrupted the flow of the game, but Burgess still had to throw himself into the path of Liam Brady’s shot to prevent Bognor from grabbing a late leveller.
