Portsmouth are out of the UEFA Cup after losing tonight against Wolfsburg 3-2. The match had plenty of incidents, but the highlight (or lowlight if you’re a Portsmouth or England national team fan) was David James’s idiotic mistake (see video above). Instead of booting the ball out, he telegraphs his intentions to the Wolfsburg striker and passes it directly to him.
David James has had a history of awful mistakes in big matches. While he can be brilliant at times, he can then make one stupid mistake that destroys all confidence in him.
Even in the loss against Wolfsburg, David James saved a penalty, but it’ll be this horrible pass that everyone will remember.
