LMAO!! And as far as I can see, that is their only entertainment!

As it looks so much like a community youth club, I'm assuming the players will be banging the mobility scooter lady outside, in the car park?

Come on you slackers, put some compare and contrast pictures up between the Skates 1980s youth club up and Staplewood! MLG or Trousers are just the people for this important task. Even the old Staplewood before the Liebherr superb makeover was in a different league (or even four) than that.

 

PS - Why has Factless got it in for Ben Haim? Didn't waive money owed?

No, be fair, they also got a new telly with Sky. And fresh paint in the portacabins.

Come on we don't have pictures of HMS Victory or Southsea pier on the wall to inspire our team, just pictures of ex players that go on to be the most expensive player in the world playing at Barcelona. Just no comparison really. Oops Make thar Real Madrid

Iain McInnes praises new-look #Pompey training ground. http://m.portsmouth.co.uk/sport/pompey/mcinnes-praises-new-look-pompey-training-ground-1-6871803

The new common room at #Pompey's training ground is mighty impressive. Just needs dartboard with Ben Haim's face on.

**** me that is embarrassing, even by their standards. Honestly I've been to church hall youth clubs that have had better facilities than that. Christ I wouldn't be surprised if that projector was rigged up to a Playstation 1 or N64 knowing them tinpot ****wits. Utterly utterly laughable.

 

Such inspiring photos on the wall as well, the rickety old pier and historical ships, just the sort of stuff to put a bit of fire in your heart and make you go out there and give 110%.

It might look smalltime but that's not any old furniture - that's the original table tennis table from HMS Victory, the one that Nelson and Hardy played upon as cannon balls and splintered wood rained down around them off Trafalgar.

And those screens are from Kennedy Space Centre and were used in the historic Apollo 11 mission to put man on the moon, while the floor has been laid using wooden planks from Noah's Ark.

You guys are too quick to judge - cos you're jealous!

Good work everyone - and another gem from Rallyboy.

 

It's the skates own fault - I'd have kept quiet about those facilities frankly, for a club that has the 'aspirations' they have. That, and the Spinnaker 'going red and white' have given this thread fresh content. We don't need to generate content here - the skates offer it to us gift wrapped.

That's because it's CURRENT, currently they're in the process of building back up to being horrendously run, a cynic might claim they need to learn where they can cheat first.

 

They'd be in the top 3 of all-time terribly run clubs, there's still only one club that's managed to go into administration whilst in the Prem and therefore whilst actually receiving Premier League tv money (as opposed to just parachute payments) for a start, and the 3 relegations in 4 seasons takes some beating. Even the late 70s/early 80s meltdowns at Wolves and Bristol City where they plummeted weren't on the same massive scale of over-expenditure and for relative pittances. No-one else has written off anything like the same amount of debt as they did, either.

 

Let's also not forget that no-one really notices what happens in League Two.

So on the night we start our European adventure in front of a sell out crowd , a Portsmouth XI take on my local conference south team Eastbourne Borough in a friendly in front of a couple of hundred people.

 

And they still think it was worth it.

I'm still annoyed that they tried to usurp our day in the sun by announcing the new acquisition of the table tennis table.

Normally a club playing in Europe would be big news, but no, they had to go and ruin it for us.

 

A good week to bury good news with even better news. Ba$!ards !

Neil Allen isn't impressed with European football... anymore. Table tennis is king!

After we win our first European game since 1981 and take a giant stride towards the next round, over in Eastbourne...

They've got a really weird setup over there. They sell shares to the supporters, but in a massive cock up those shares are actually worth something, give them voting rights and part ownership of the club.
