When you lose your biggest game of the season against a top team from London, with the whole world watching, it's gonna hurt.

That said, Charlton Athletic must have been surprised at the home fans booing their own plucky heroes.

Nick my boy, no i'm not bitter, to many years of watching lower league dross are starting to take there toll, (Nick Kershaw hit comes to mind). After watching that cup game you were not unlucky, more like ripped off, not saying the end result would have been different, against 12 men is a struggle.

but don't fret nick i'm not going all gooey, the skate in me was still gloating, :smug:

 

About what?

 

Having few teeth so cheaper dental care? Living "closely" with immediate family? TCWTB... ???

Nice of you to say Mack. I wouldn't expect you not to be pleased, I had the same warm feelings when you were robbed by Liverpool(?) all those years ago, and then your lot arranged to do the worst selection of penalty kicks I have ever seen lol.

Do they really want to reopen that enormous comedy warehouse? :o

It's packed full of arms dealers, unpaid players, club-financed prostitutes, heather-peddling simpletons who will believe anything, false accounts, a tax-dodging dog, ridiculous estimates of people on Southsea Common, kids with their legs blown off, backhanders, a poor innocent woman on a mobility scooter and a level of delusion normally associated with serious mental health issues.

So please stop them from reopening the 2008 cup debate - it won't end there, we'll have an underwater casino before you know it and Maradona will be watching the World Cup Final next to HMS Warrior while his tubby mate sells ice creams.

I can't go through all that again.

Before the toothless and their sisters rise from their hibernation and return here to celebrate their love of Bournemouth, let's give a nod of recognition to Mack.

He didn't hide, he kept sticking his head up even when his club closed to make way for a new one and became irrelevant to the rest of football.

Fair play to him.

:)

Yep Mack is the one who at least comes across and shows some stick. There again, he nearly dropped his guard and showed a bit of the dark side.

I'm sorry Mack that your lot have failed in the rise to glory but I would say I'm a tad pleased

I admire any keeper who has the confidence and technical skill to attempt a Cruyff turn on the edge of his own six yard box...

 

 

That said, the training ground is probably the best place to have your first clumsy attempt, rather than in an actual match.

But it was worth it for the comedy value - a nice way to confirm Division Three status next season.

Just seen the goal. :-) As an occasional keeper I normally have a bit of sympathy for keepers but in this case it seems to have disappeared. Why was he flapping his hands afterwards - he seemed to be suggesting it was somebody else's fault.

28th April 2018 - St Portsmouth Day

 

 

A movable feast like Easter, that usually falls in March, April or May. It is the day it became mathematically impossible for Southampton to play Portsmouth in a league game until August 2019 at the earliest.

I still find it a bit creepy seeing the female manikin chained by the neck to the scaffolding pole in the Pompey shirt.

They are all utterly disgusting, only the one in grey and white has anything resembling normality but suspect he has no teeth and married his sister..

I heard this and don't think it's true. But has anyone else heard the rumour.

Basically Mr Eisner, is looking to dispose of the Skates. He has become disenchanted with some groups of the fans, the intransigence of local government planning dept's and that there are in place covenants on the land at Fat Pipes Park, meaning it can only be used for sporting/leisure purposes, greatly reducing its value when trying to use it as an asset to raise money to move or redevelope the stadium.

Has anyone heard of these covenants? Or is any of this in the slightest bit plausible?

The covenants have been mentioned on this thread before - don’t know how true it is tbh but I expect trousers to know - he seems to like digging into that side of things. [emoji6]

"He also confirmed the existence of a covenant on Fratton Park that stipulates the stadium must be used for football, apparently ruling out any hopes of selling it to generate much-needed revenue."

 

Mind you, that was from Andronikou ...

Why do foreign investors get suckered in with this stuff?

 

Surely if he realised he needed to move the stadium, he would have understood what restrictions there were on the current one? Surely he would have spent a little bit of time thinking, "I wonder if anyone else has ever tried to move a football stadium out of the city it is currently in?".

 

These folks have a lot of money and a distinct lacking in common sense.

 

Fratton Park will never be allowed to be built outside of the city of Portsmouth, which is the most densely populated patch on this little island of ours. They had their chance to build a better stadium by turning it through 90 degrees and using the land alongside it. They chose not to do that.

 

They are now stuck with a time-warp of a stadium that must be getting to the age where it would be cheaper to tear it down and rebuild, rather than maintain it each and every year.

 

What on earth did Mr Eisner think he was going to achieve? Buy the club for £5m, sell Fratton Park for £50m and build a 15,000 seater stadium in Havant and trouser the difference?

 

Mental.

I thnk they sold small patches of the pitch to fans so that they couldn't develop it. Whether they registered the ownership of these small pieces is another thing

My recollection is that the restrictions on use always ruled out selling the site and cramming houses and commercial property on it.

The only way they'll get money for The Fortress of Fat is if they stick it on Homes Under the Hammer and some dimwit local builder jumps in without reading the legal pack.

But at least he'll get Nelson's computer table, the shroud of Turin and the grassy knoll used by the CIA.

According to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_English_districts_by_population_density London borough population densities way ahead. Portsmouth 1st outside of London. Southampton 2nd

Coincidently, that sentence works for both definitions of the word....

They really are getting desperate now. Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel :lol:

 

I was hoping we'd picked up on this, saw it earlier in the week, a share on one of my friends' lists prompted about 10 people in the Northam (including myself) to indicate that it definitely didn't happen, and Steve Grant chipped in to point out that it doesn't even scan and fit the song... I can only even remember Defoe getting one "you Skate b'stard" when he came on for that matter.

 

Add it to the pile o'myths.

A (tinpot) football club sponsored by a university?

 

Well, that's one way of spending student's fees I suppose. Beats robbing from charities anyway.

 

Seems to have gone down well in social media land....
