Fratton Park: Home to Pompey

The 24-year-old was playing non-league football for Burnham last season and was working as an electrician until joining up with the Pompey squad.

And after moving a step closer to a contract with an impressive display, which began with the opening goal after 48 seconds, Bird says he is pinching himself at how well things are going.

"I'm loving life," he told the Chichester Observer. "I'm buzzing. Two weeks ago I was working on a building site as an electrician and playing non-League football. It's living the dream.

"There are other League clubs interested in me. But Pompey is by far the biggest and, obviously, this is where I want to be.

"To follow in the footsteps of all the great players that have been here would be ridiculous."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
