Pomp and circumstance

Following yesterday's draw for the Third Round of the League Cup, we'll be welcoming 'Appy 'Arry and his recent tabletopping side Portsmouth to St James' Park a month earlier than anticipated.

Backed by Alexandre Gaydamark's millions, Redknapp made a number of shrewd summer signings and has got his team playing good football whilst ensuring they are virtually impenetrable at the back (the only side to score against them thus far this season were Mansfield in midweek).

Even still, we have a good home record against the South Coast side, and once again this competition represents our best chance of silverware (oh dear, I've mentioned the 's' word...). I wonder if 'Arry would be prepared to accept a small cash payment in return for letting us win?
