    Don't worry, they won't be making the same mistakes with their stadium as some of the biggest clubs in Europe, and their due diligence takes in more than just how the other guys serve beer. It's all because everyone in football really loves them, so all the other clubs are happy to share their secrets.

    Man United need to think harder about the sort of competitor they might be creating before they next allow the Skates through the door.

    "Portsmouth is moving into a new dawn with the backing of owner Alexandre Gaydamak and these are very exciting times for the club both on and off the field. The new stadium, along with plans for the club's new training ground at Titchfield, is proof of where we want Pompey to be - playing at the highest level and in a stadium that is reflective of a top Premiership side."

    As you're very new to this forum, I'd suggest starting on page one of this thread and report back with any queries once you've got to the end.

    He added: ‘It’s a testament to the management team and history of this club that everyone opens their doors to us.
    FFS. They just can't help it with the nauseating nonsense. I'm sure the likes of Liverpool and Man Utd really consider themselves privileged to be in the company of such elite

    We need a smiley created for Eisner.



    I'm sure someone can find something better, that's just one of the first things that came up.

    The News website is AWFUL, I kept trying to see the comments and it just kept loading more articles to read, over and over again (although this one came up which is fairly amusing... https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/an...spot-1-8507868 )

    Anyway, I did make it to the comments section, and surprise surprise, the deludedest are out in force

    The atmosphere generated by the Pompey crowd will be transferred to the new ground just like it was transferred to places like Wembley, Old Trafford


    To top it off a nice bright stadium will be visible to traffic coming in to Portsmouth from the motorway giving the whole area an affluent look.
    Hahahhaaa

    Horsea Island - spend big, build a well designed 44k stadium that will be a leading venue on the south coast - attract more fans - more revenue etc - Think juventues stadium but with a kop end now thats very tempting.
    I have no words for how deluded this comment is. Sums up everything wrong with them.

    Nothing can change the fact that there is not enough room to convert Fratton Park into a modern football stadium, incorporating all the thinks a modern stadium requires, corporate facilities, adequate car parking, retail, eating and drinking places, in other words a retail park. And last of all a 40,000 capacity.
    Lol not asking for much, Portsmouth is of course well known for having loads of greenfield and brownfield sites available...

    Fratton Park will be very costly to improve to a suitable capacity (35000)
    There we go again, desperate for an unnecessary bigger stadium

    One of Pompey FC's greatest assets is the stadium, old-fashioned and aging it may be, but when full, with the crowd in full voice, there are few more passionate or intimidating grounds for opposition teams to play in...ask AC Milan, or Man Utd or Arsenal
    Yeh...

    Whilst I love watching football at Fratton Park, I also cannot see how the City could cope with gates in excess of 30,000 on a regular basis.
    Don't worry, I don't think that will ever be a problem for them...

    Indeed, Trousers deals with all enquiries, he's happy to talk newcomers through the whole thread, one page at a time, explaining every reference and offering unique background analysis.

    A sociologist's dream resulting in papers such as:

    Pompey Online in meltdown mode, seems like two of their best players in Clarke and Pitman are being linked with bigger clubs (Reading and Rangers). Only rumours, but if those were to happen then the skates' anger would be directed at the Eisners. Would also suggest that there isn't much money to spend for them...

    He also has trouble with numbers:

    "It is understood Curtis’ transfer fee is well in excess of six figures."

    Their owner has just Tweeted, bigging up Bale's goal as being good for south coast football.

    Not sure he's read his audience there.

    If (by some fluke) it had been JWP who had scored the winning CL goal or (more probably) Ox how would the Skates have reacted to a tweet like that? Born in Portsmouth but bred in Southampton.

    That part right there, they just can't handle it.

    At the end of the day, Pomepy fans of a certain age must realise that, "their sons will wear our shirts".

    Simple as that.

    When Pompey families have to make a choice between our academy and theirs, if they want what's best for their sons, they will choose ours all day long. We get the best of Hampshire, Pompey academy get what we don't want.

    It highlights how out of touch their owner is with the views of very likely a large % of their fanbase. If he isn't aware a tweet like that would go badly then what other daft decisions will he make...?
