    Their families are much more "close" than normal ones

    True story. The current Skate U18ís have taken on two lads I use to teach on a 2 year apprenticeship. Both great lads in fairness but neither stood out in particular, not even at school.

    Saints werenít interested but both would have jumped at the chance.

    Their kids will wear our shirts, thereís no way back for them.

    Passing Havant and Waterlooville's ground in the week I noticed they have a pre-season friendly against Pompey. I rather fancy H&W to win, and if it wasn't clashing with an event for my club it might have been fun to wander along and see just how bad they are.

    Have Pompey got any internationals going to the World Cup?

    Nope. According to their current squad, they don't actually have any foreigners.

    Not sure if they have any former players there though.

    He was born in England. Yes he identifies as Irish, but he's Anglo-Irish.

    OK not Skate related, but it is exactly the sort of thing they would do, in their efforts to rewrite history

    Pompey owners ready to spend big on Fratton Park

    Somehow it's a matter of pride that they can afford essential maintenance to keep the tatty timber tabernacle from collapsing completely

    And a nice Pompey at the World Cup article. Apparently, the Senegal Head Coach made 28 appearances for Pompey over a decade ago.

    So what have I missed? Are they still rubbish?

    Yep they're still enjoying real football in the backwaters, but they are going to spend big, big, big!

    Mainly because they need a safety certificate and a pitch that drains, but they've dressed that up as some glorious future investment and the plucky faithful have translated that as a new 35k-seater stadium that will make the Harbourdome look like the Withdean.
    And re the new signing who is all excited because he saw the mighty blue army when he was a boy...I saw Slade when I was a boy but it doesn't make me want to team up with Dave Hill and tour in 2018.
    That would be crazee.

    Incredible the club is in League 1
    Humungous name
    To me, they are a Premier League club
    Others don't have the size and history of Portsmouth
    Success it warrants
    I can take myself back to the noise and atmosphere
    Wow, it's some noise
    It's a humungous club


    They truly are a pathetic, pointless club these days who are there to merely make up the numbers.

    Carabao Cup draw taking place now. Hopefully they get an easy opponent and will progress to the Second Round. Please let us play them this season footballing gods.

    I think Wimbledon are fair game for such chants personally. After all, they have been in existence 10 years longer than the current football club that plays at Fratton Park.

    Nice of them to point out that Portsmouth Community Football Club has never been represented at a World Cup.

    Their new kit has been released... it's teamwear gash. Nike's Challenge II template, used by every decent Nike team for their third kit last season. As ever, it's now available for parks teams:



    Comes with completely plain white shorts and completely plain red socks. I can't wait until Nike start sodding about with their colours because they only release one style of short and socks every two years...

    And here it is completely unaltered for any old parks team at £32 a shirt (or £24 a shirt if you buy 14)... http://www.prodirectsoccer.com/produ...63-176520.aspx

    "Any old parks team" Oi, no need to be so disparaging! :-) By the time we've put on our sponsors logo, our team badge, numbers, Hampshire FA patch, etc, they end up expensive. My best friend doesn't even like football but I managed to persuade her to be the shirt sponsor before she really understood how much it would cost. Fortunately she's still smiling and talking to me..

    Really, I'm sure I haven't mentioned it since last season, and this thread, if it's anything, is all about continuity and recurrent themes! :->>

    If you really want the detail I play very little, off the bench. Would you like more detail? I'm not up to Heisenberg's or CB Fry's level of tiresomeness, or even, dare I say it The9s when it comes to all things to do with shirts, which is where we came in. But if I'm feeling stroppy I'm sure I can go completely OT and be as irrelevant to the topic as the rest of you are much of the time.

    Good points, Sue. I suppose that many other posters being so extremely monotonous has just become the norm, which is why I usually don't read them. When I see you have posted, I always make a point to read it. I don't know why I chimed in really!

    Anyway, let me tell you about the beer I brew again.......

    Default Pompey Takeover Saga

    They had a debate about safe standing in parliament. A Portsmouth MP spoke - within the opening sentence mentioned how Portsmouth have a prolific history of European and top flight football (cue the facepalm gif) and then made a joke about Southampton fans having to sit because the quality of football is poorer apparently.

    Royston Smith hit back though with a few jibes of his own. Itís all on Hansard if any nutjobs want to take a look for themselves.

    In my 50 years of watching football, I can only recall Pompey playing European football on a couple of occasions in the seasons of when the taxpayer and charities funded it. What other time have they done so? I'm not talking pre season tours of Gibraltar etc

    Even if you look past the false nature of that statement... how f*cking pathetic is it that an MP is making petty Portsmouth/Southampton jibes in a parliamentary debate

    I think they did around 1957 when Pat Neal played on the left wing whilst attending Brockenhurst Grammar School. He also played for Hampshire Grammar Schools during the week. Mike Pratt from Swanage GS playing RB, had to mark him when they played us (Dorset GS) at Brockenhurst and we pulled his leg in the dressing room after that his opponent was playing for the Skates the previous week in Europe.

    Meanwhile, the Newport County (ha! got a mention in) forum I joined last year when Saints weren't even worth discussing hasn't mentioned me going on about Saints and Premier League football once. Somehow.

    This comprehensive wiki on English clubs in International competitions mentions them ONCE (2008/9). They also qualified in 2010 but forgot to pay anyone for anything and didn't get a licence and weren't allowed to play. Plus tbh they'd have been an embarrassment and probably wouldn't have been able to get a budget flight back once the bill came in.

    FWIW, compared to their one, uno, ein, un... we've qualified for Europe nine times (though one was during the post-Heysel ban).
