    Pathetic club.
    I'm not sure about that. It's looking like it will be a big ask for them to be able to survive at this high a level. It'll probably be better for them if they slip back into L2, where they belong.

    Lost 3 on the bounce and back into the bottom half.

    I wonder if they'll take the patient approach and try to build a team for next season or if they will spunk a load of money in January on a new team?

    I wish we could have played them a couple years ago. They were languishing in the 4th division whilst we were beating the best teams in the land. We'd have trashed them!

    I would be very happy never to play them again. We would be on a hiding to nothing as they have nothing to lose

    I didn’t even realise it was The FA Cup first round until I saw the results Saturday. You know your rivals are **** when they are out the cup before you even know it’s started.

    "They're all rank", I thought to myself, scrolling down the page. Yet, lo! The horror! Number six did leap upon me like a drunk sailor in the night, pistol cocked and stinking.

    Vote number six.

    Genuinely appalling.

    Number 2 seems to have a design flaw with the date

    Jesus Christ, they can't help themselves can they? Here's the last one, 3 years ago - 55% voted to change it. I wonder if it's the same 55% voting to change it again?
    https://www.portsmouthfc.co.uk/news/...-crest-change/

    As well as 2018 and 2014, they've also changed it in 2008, 1997, 1995, 1993, 1989, 1980 and 1973. I'm not sure whether its impatience, delusion, inferiority or what.

    In contrast, Saints have only made tiny cosmetic changes to the club's badge since original introduction in 1973 (eg putting the design into a circle - and then retaining part of that circle ever since, or adding a circle or shield shape to host the main design, making it monochrome or, the only actual change to the overall design, amending the ball to be 32 panel rather than 18 for copyright reasons.) So basically retaining the same "halo/ball/scarf/shield/tree/flower/waves/scroll" motif throughout whilst Portsmouth have changed theirs nine times.

    Number 6



    Apparently, that particular design was created by the US supporters club

    I'm a bit surprised there were no emblems depicting a sailor diddling a fish though.

    Very clever how they pretend that it will be the fans voting choice,but really it is down to the advisory panel to put a choice to the board.
    No6 is straight from Jake and the Pirates lol.
    Somebody needs to photoshop that one and put a W at the top of the anchor.

    I actually laughed out loud at number 6.

    Id expect something like that if you gave the task to 6yo kids

    Voted six and slated the rest. They've made it pretty laborious to get through the voting so will take some serious nutjobbery to swing it in our favour.

    I came on here to check we were all voting number 6. Be sure to mention history, heritage and how unique it is.

    So number 4 is their current logo with "FC" added to it. Innovative.

    Yeah, I started and gave up after a couple of minutes. They're only going to ignore it and pick the one they want anyway.

    I'm pretty sure one of the Eisners is promoting number 6.

    I see they are also just three points off the playoffs again.

    Poor effort - I've voted three times already!

    I guess Penny's resignation moment will be when they discover that she historically defended tax-dodgers.
    My how they will laugh down at the Treasury.
