This 2009-10 English Premier League season will be Portsmouth’s seventh straight year in the division, although the team has been on a steady decline for a few years ago. It may be disappointing to hear for Portsmouth fans but a top 16 finish would be seen as a success this year with all the competition in the EPL. However, Portsmouth live games will still prove to be rather exciting and you can catch them all right here on OleOleFootball.
Portsmouth is dealing with a lot of turnover right now and players are uncertain of the direction they are headed in. Glen Johnson has left and no major players have been brought in. Money seems to be the major factor for the decline of the team and has caused Johnson to leave as well as Peter Crouch. They need to improve there defense this year as they let up 57 goals last year.
Portsmouth has only managed to bring in Steve Finnan and Aaron Mokoena, both on free transfers yet have lost a few players on transfers and via outright release such as Lauren, Glen Little and Jerome Thomas. There is news that the team might go through a takeover which could infuse some cash and possibly allow them to finish in the middle of table. However if that deal falls through it could be a long year for Portsmouth fans.
You would be hard pressed to find many people that feel that Portsmouth can become one of the top teams in the EPL, even if the new takeover goes through. However, there is often no better place to watch football than Wembley, and if you cannot be there then OleOleFootball is the next best place to watch Portsmouth live. Sign up, sit back and enjoy live football action all season long, it is as simple as that.
