    Apparently Westwood got one hell of a kicking yesterday.
    Lots of skate fans quite pleased it happened too.

    The Fratton Faithful fighting amongst their own over whether to support the manager? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.

    Good news. They’re going absolutely nowhere with Jackett and this secures him another few months.

    Can’t believe Pompey won. Southend’s manager should really be in the Premier League with his ability.

    The few have travelled to Harrogate tonight and looks like it might be postponed due to a power cut

    Pre-KO power failure at Harrogate putting their game at risk of postponement tonight. Real shame for their players/fans that have travelled so far on a Monday night...

    That's it. BT treated us to a shot of TCWTB. Too much. Giving up on it now.

    I went to the game as I live in Harrogate. I thought Pompey were sh8t. Two very good goals but other then that offered little and were lucky to narrowly win. They had about 600 up there which to be fair is a good effort for a game 280 miles away against a non league club which is on telly but they were very quiet, one or two PUPs but that was it, very poor support.

    Had a brief look on Twitter and their subreddit during the game, around 75% of the Twitter comments were people complaining about TCWTB. General consensus among the Pompey fans is that they were awful and lucky to get past a Harrogate Town team who outplayed them for most of the game. Still, buys Jackett another game or two and brings them within a game of the third round drawer, so maybe it won't all be four nothing

    They were. To be fair both their goals were excellent, but that was the difference between the two teams. Their 2m summer signing looked like a pub player, he was awful, as was the big lad at the back with the pony tail, must have missed the ball about 5 times when he was trying to clear it, real kids stuff. Harrogate were the better team and although the artificial pitch might have made a difference Pompey really were awful.

    Only 30k? The few will be distraught, it is literally their only ambition to have a bigger stadium then us, it breaks their hearts.

    Currently, at give away prices, Pompey have an average league attendance, including plenty of season ticket holders who don't actually attend, discounted tickets for UoP staff and students etc., of 17,892, making them the third best-supported team in League 1 (congrats on that by the way). Fratton Park's current reduced capacity is 19,669, and if they fixed the roof 21,000 people could watch Pompey lose in discomfort.

    I'd be curious to see the feasibility studies which are going to convince Network Rail and the council to invest millions in advance of Pompey spending a single penny upgrading Fratton Park to a 30,000-seater turd bowl. Where exactly do they expect these hordes of new supporters to magically appear from?

    They built a new bridge there about 18 months ago. They won't be building another for a once fortnightly occasion.

    Many of the locals are starting to ask questions abut Disney and the lack of progress relating to the new stadium. The idea that development would be held up over a bridge is seen as a very lame excuse and as a result some think that raises doubt about Eisner's intentions. Three years in they wonder if they would be any worse off if they hadn't sold up.

    The only difference is the tablecloth didn't used to get ironed before the press conferences before the massive investment sell off

    It's a bit like Brexit. Boris Johnson patently didn't want to take the UK out with no deal. He wanted to be stopped, whereafter he could point fingers at the "Brexit traitors." Similarly, given the ridiculous conditions attached, it looks suspiciously like Eisner has no intention of actually doing the stadium work - he just wants someone to blame.

    They are a bit of a roll at the moment.

    FA Cup 3rd round pretty much nailed on and a placed in the play offs on the cards.

    Could be more derbies to come this season and possibly next!!

    About time. Been far too many seasons seeing them just missing out on promotion. Bring on the fun and games of Portsmouth Community Football Club trying to be 'competitive' in the Championship....

    Hmmm.... use taxpayers' money to fund a new hospital or two, or help a decrepit tinpot football club (whose predecessor at Fratton Park fleeced the taxpayer for millions) build a new stadium...? Tricky dilema that one....

    They were bloody lucky to beat Altringham, has to be said. The team in red and white were certianly the better side and should have had a blatant penalty in the first half not given.
