Taylor volley $950 new celine us 10 eu 40 pony hair 2 peps Pompey
Points are not the only commodity Portsmouth have delivered in abundance this $2700 new 2017 authentic celine nano debossed luggage gray calfskin $1350 celine meteora runway ankle boots shoes steel leather sz it 38 aqua trim season. They have entertained and given value for money along the way – and continued to do so to secure this victory, which lifts them to third in the table.
It was set up by a spectacular strike from Matthew Taylor that will surely figure on the short-list for Goal of $1150 new authentic celine trio leather beige shoulder crossbody bag italy the Season. Nwankwo Kanu’s second was not bad, either, and for 45 minutes Portsmouth were irresistible. Their momentum slipped a notch after the interval, but it was not until the closing stages that Everton began to put them under any sort of concerted pressure and by then it was much too late.
Taylor broke his Premiership duck for $4200 celine nwt new 2017 medium clasp frame handbag black sleek calfskin bag the campaign with both goals against Aston Villa the previous Saturday and with 14 minutes gone here he set the game alight after the ball came loose from a challenge in the centre circle involving Kanu and Simon Davies. His instant volley from 45 $950 new celine us 10 $810 celine paris flat sandal zipper front optic white leather slingback 36 eu 40 turquoise pony hair espadrille loafer slip yards was a model of technique and timing, his shot soaring over goalkeeper Tim Howard and into the net.
‘It will take something special to beat that – an unbelievable effort,’ said the Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp. ‘He’s always smashing balls at the goal from that distance in training trying to hit the crossbar.’
The lead was preserved by David James, who plunged low to his left to keep out James Beattie’s flick from Lee Carsley’s free-kick, and gathered the ball as it came loose with Andy Johnson closing in.
For all intents and purposes, the issue was settled after 26 minutes. Gary O’Neil crossed deep, Joseph Yobo was unable to make $2250 new authentic celine cabas phantom black croc crocodile tote handbag bag contact with his aerial challenge and Kanu’s first-time volley flew low into the far corner for his ninth goal of an increasingly productive $3400 celine nano luggage bag nwt dust bag season.
‘No one would have thought we would be third at this stage of the season,’ added Redknapp. ‘It was an important win because with so many sides bunched together you are always looking over your shoulder.’
Redknapp continues to counsel caution, not least because Benjani Mwaruwari sustained a hamstring injury and Kanu also came off later. With Lomana LuaLua and Andy Cole out for some time, Portsmouth’s options up front are running thin.
Everton are also suffering. They missed a complete midfield quartet of Leon Osman, Tim Cahill, Mikel Arteta and Phil Neville for this match replica celine micro luggage tote, although David Moyes refused to blame their injuries for a disappointing performance.
‘Portsmouth are big and strong and I hoped we had a side that would be big and strong to stand up to them,’ he said. ‘Instead, we were rubbish in the first half. After that we at least put our name to it $950 new celine us 11 eu 41 black leather platform wedges ankle sandals shoes bx and had a couple of chances. But overall it was not good. We need to do better.’
There was no doubting the serious lack of a cutting edge currently afflicting his side. Johnson, after starting his Goodison Park career with six goals in seven games, has not found the mark since, while Beattie, along with David Weir, were replaced at half time as the Everton manager shuffled his line-up.
However, Portsmouth continued to look the more likely. Mwaruwari, bearing down on Howard, threatened a third goal until Joleon Lescott’s intervention proved a decisive one. Then Taylor, an influential figure in so many areas of the pitch, had a header saved.
Everton finally began a mount a sustained threat. James, under pressure from Victor Anichebe, punched clear Nuno Valente’s long ball into the box. Then the goalkeeper saved from Yobo at close range.
Redknapp added: ‘The secret? Treating players with respect and making them feel important. If we can keep on doing that, we should be OK.’
