1963 - what a year that was!

 

Meanwhile, what is Farmery doing at a car boot sale in Rome?

Though I understand his excitement, it's difficult to spot a pompey shirt in Cosham these days between all the Chelsea and United ones, as the little minnow sinks beneath the media frenzy of the nasty Premier League and into obscurity.

They will soon be a club remembered only by bitter old men who like the superior sound quality of cassette tapes, strippers in pubs, and Love Thy Neighbour.

I would be gutted if they get the America's Cup team though, the Woolston site would be perfect.

I reckon Southampton City Council have ballsed up by declaring their interest in this, they could have kept it quiet and waited for the NIMBYs in Portsmouth to reject the idea. Instead, one of the PCC councillors at the meeting last night specifically said "if we don't approve this, they'll go down the road to Southampton", which will probably make them vote in favour now, when they might have been minded to reject it.

"When I was a youngster growing up in Paulsgrove in a dysfunctional family" !

 

Confirmation, if ever it was needed :)

 

But what constitutes "dysfunctional" in Paulsgrove?

 

At first I'd have called this a clear tautology, but on reflection maybe he means that his parents were related only by marriage. That would certainly count as dysfunctional in Paulsgrove. Unheard of even.

I'm on page 2453 already, so this could get quite tedious for me in the next few months.

 

ha same, also page 2,453. I'm always confused why I am on different pages to everyone else - now I know I'm not the only one!

I'd have thought that 'nominal' for League Two is more likely to be around the £50K mark.

Their cut should be enough to pay Connolly through the summer.

 

The financial gulf between the lower leagues and the Championship widens with every day that passes.

They must be pleased that they put their confidence in youth and concentrated on the academy to provide the players who will get them back to their seat at the top table.

It's shrewd business decisions like that from their talented board that will give them the edge over lesser clubs.

Saw a bloke walking through Winchester wearing one of those on Monday.

 

A Newport "Robert Price" sponsored rugby shirt, I mean, obviously. Haven't seen a Skate shirt here since 2009.

 

The season's The9 Derby is August 30th, Newport County back at Fratton. West Ham away can ram it.

A lovely comment from a poster on pol:

 

My ex-wife came back to the city yesterday for a meeting about our youngest (having moved away 7 years ago) and she'd forgotten how unique Pompey is as a city! Nothing embarrassing about a 7 months pregnant, made-up to the 9s, dyed blonde in tight leggings and a bikini top chain smoking down the street, is there? I didn't even notice cos it's Pompey but she was rather shocked! Chubby schoolgirl in immaculate school uniform brazenly walking home from Milton Cross with a skirt shorter than most belts! It's Pompey!

Craig Westcarr has revealed Pompey’s ambition persuaded him to snub four League One clubs in favour of dropping down a division.

 

That and perhaps the two year contract on improved wages?

 

 

There's a lad with ambition!

The chance to play in the third tier? - no, lower please, lower.

 

Would you like to play in the Premier League?

No, the Championship will do for me ta.

Fancy a game in the World Cup?

Nah, a pointless international friendly would be more my scene.

Want to be a pro footballer?

Not really, I'd prefer to work in a shop.

 

It can only be the lure of playing as part of the best atmosphere in world football.

Now that's a blow.

 

I reckoned that I knew who Rallyboy was .... but that person started university in 1977 so unless Rallyboy started at the age of 14 at university it cannot be him.

 

How can I nominate Rallyboy for the awards that he deserves if I do not know who he is??

Hilariously for me it's next to a Newport rugby kit, and not even people in Newport are particularly bothered about them any more since regional rugbish.

 

Does not Farmery realise that Porta Portese is a flea market where any old tat goes?

Rather amusing that a "fan owned club" won't tell its owners how much transfer fee was received for Sonny Bradley.

Probably to do with this: "In keeping with requirements of the Professional Footballers’ Association, 50 per cent of the transfer figure will go towards paying legacy debts."

 

They will try and fiddle the amount they need to hand over to the PFA.

Come on its Crawley! We ain't got no money no more - the best Poopey can hope for is a couple of rain sodden turfs from the pitch that's still drying out from last season

So this flea market seller still has ancient Skate stock that nobody wants to purchase. No surprise there really

 

I wonder how cheap their 2013/14 shirts will get on SportsDirect? I've just checked and at £9.59 (and having been at that price for at least 2 weeks) they still have:

 

Home shirt infant and junior sizes 12, 1-2, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13

Home shirt adult sizes S, M, L, XL

Plus numerous away, third, goalkeeper and training kit.

 

They must be chuffed about the booming market in size 3-4 kids' shirts though, assuming they ever stocked them. Same goes for the 2XL, 3XL and 4XL home shirts - though they do still have all of those in the away shirt, and all sizes except 4XL in the third kit.

 

In short, they still have bloody loads of them. At under £10. In all sizes. For all kits.

Going to the trouble of checking out the stock levels of their full replica kits is Nutjobbery above and beyond the call of duty!

The much-coveted PTS medal of honour will no doubt be on the way soon.

You can clean it every day - to fill all those hours that you obviously have spare! :)

This stuff is beyond parody. I wonder if they accept virtual money.

 

Indeed, I have it on good authority that I order to fox the taxman and once again be able to live beyond means they are evolving a virtual currency called South Hampshire Internet Transaction Coins or SH ITCOINS for short. They are untraceable and have no actual value and are therefore made for eachother.

Penalty spots are the new snow leopards.
to be fair there are only 2 Pompey penalty spots in the world wheras there must be 50 or so Snow Leopards. If you own the spot can you take it away and just leave a bit of mud where it is placed.If so I might go and buy it

You're getting confused Nick. This isn't a real virtual penalty spot. This is a virtual penalty spot on a rented training pitch.

 

So it's worth a lot more, obviously.

Lol even their penalty spot sales are dodgy
