    Maybe Eisener will discover that they can't threaten to up sticks should the local council not pay for the new stadium infrastructure, like they do in the US, and decide to sell the club back to the fans. With creased tablecloths at the ready, the fans then announce exciting plans to spend less on the team and more on the new stadium. Unfortunately, they get the balance wrong and the team starts to struggle. Relegation to Division 4 eventually follows despite the reappointment of the flat fish whisperer Paul Cook.

    Blackpool rebuilt stand 4 on the cheap and it has pillars, the other 3 sides are basically mini St Mary's.

    Can't remember if Walsall has pillars at Bescot but I think it does, another near the 30 year mark, the 30 year cutoff rules out Glanford Park by a couple of years which is annoying.

    Exeter may also have done this but not in either of their two most recently rebuilt stands.

    That's enough of that anyway, they did well just putting a roof on it and refurbing the loos 3 years ago - I thought the big Saints logo in the away loos was a bit much tbf, it wasn't there for Newport County's numerous League 2 away wins.

    No mention of the EFL Trophy? Still the worst boycott ever, they're in the semis again, if Newport beat Leicester U21s and then Salford and the Skates see off Exeter I might get a really weird third trip to Wembley in three years to see Newport play (as well as the three trips to see Saints). Though as I'm barely even paying attention to the EFL and FA Cups, never mind the EFL Trophy...

    The east stand at Bloomfield Road is one of those permanent "temporary" structures, it was erected to comply with the regulations of the Premier League. Before being given the Order of the Boot, the Oystons were trying to gain additional land along Back Henry Street so as to continue the development of that side of the ground in similar form to the other 3 sides.

    To be honest you shouldn't have any difficulty getting them yourself Season ticket holders can get 5 tickets each & all seats are unreserved!

    If they are going to go up I'd prefer they do it automatically rather than through the excitement of the playoffs and Wembley

    They've hit form at the right time and look odds on now to go up.

    Thank goodness for insurance bets.

    Going up is exactly against what the owners want. They want the income of the play offs but not the expense of trying to survive in the Championship. A play off final defeat is their ideal outcome.

    If they make it to the Championship, I would be really surprised not to see them struggle. There's a long way to go yet, and plenty of time for their relegation form the start of the season to return :-)

    Less years than a football club from Portsmouth have won one without cheating.

    (Assuming we're talking about the previous football club that used to play at fratton park rather than the current one with only 8 years of history behind it, of course)

    Next.

    I guess they don't want to sack the Jackett now then well at least until the next poor result

    I'm sure it won't be too long before the Boo's ring out around The Old Girl after failing to beat one of the strugglers.

    However it will be a complete jizz fest if they could get Thierry Henri to lead Arsenal out for the FA Cup match, but might go sour as Scummer Cedric cracks in the 5th goal

    FFS... just when you think the 4th best south coast team are, at long last, going to claw themselves out of Division 3 into the chortlefest that awaits us in the Championship, they revert to type and lose again. Jeeez.

    Well they scraped through. As soon as I saw that there was going to be 5 mins extra time I felt it would happen. Ah well Exeters team of kids nearly did enough to beat Pompeys first 11. A good day out for their fans and be the first team to retain it. I suppose if you hang around the lower tiers long enough you can do such things

    Pompey are likely to set a record and win whatever the Lower league Cup for the second time and fair play to them for that.

    I am sure this will be added to their list of titles and cups.

    However we never seem to make any reference to our domination of the Southern League from 1885 to 1920 when it was essentially a 3rd Division and we competed with the likes of Spurs.Think we won the title 8 or 9 times.

    Strange. Last time they made the final they were only going “to take my kids to experience Wembley” and “a one off day out”. This time it’s to show the support for the club but not the trophy. Whatever fits to boycott the boycott

    Do these JPT scores even register on the vidiprinter these days?
    Lots of them have been skipping home games so should be able to afford their big day out.
    No idea who they are playing I’m that interested.

    JPT was the glory days when it was a professional tournament and not littered with kids teams.
    Now it’s the Leasing.com trophy and it’s possible for an academy to win it.

    To be fair it's a cup designed for the lower clubs to play for every season...it probably wasn't very fair when we popped down and won it but hey ho...

    Would be amusing if they finish 7th this season.

    Still it's tough coming up against some of the giants of English football such as Fleetwood.
