They want promotion this year....... Well for now at least until it goes tits up and then they wont

 

Pompey are at their level now. And without serious investment (imaginary or not), they aren't going to get promoted until they've been relegated first.

Exactly the reaction on twitter during the cup game. They go 1-0 up ‘get in PUP’ etc.

Lose the game. ‘Didn’t want to progress in this tinpot cup’ etc.

So nice of their players to keep up with the desires of the fans.

And you still don't, as the football status situation is currently...

 

Saints = 13th out of 92 clubs

 

vs

 

Pompey = 46th out of 92 clubs

Saints above Pompey in the football pyramid like they have been for the vast majority of the last 60 years!

It remains a vast gap; the two clubs are light years apart in terms of infrastructure at academy level, training ground quality, stadium etc. The jump from League 2 to the top of League 1 is tiny compared to what Pompey would face on promotion to the Championship or further. If Pompey went up this season the fanbase will be in for a shock. They'd become a small fish in a Championship pond of teams with parachute payments, big stadiums/attendances than Pompey and big spending owners (not something Eisner has shown to be happening).

Blimey! a new low down there, when you think they are as low as they can get!!!!!!! They admit to having intimate views of their mothers privates..... :eek:

 

Calm down ..... Mack is a very rare breed of skate with a sense of humour!!

Also his 'old lady' is probably his Wife (and/or Sister etc) not mother ... so it is acceptable!!

I thought he may have been talking about Fortress Fatpipes aka The Old Girl at first.....but the cracks in the floors/ ceilings / stands etc are probaly getting bigger :scared:

Nick .......you've just been rumbled!!

 

Your last msg was sent at 6.57 and you even know the names of ex players (Alan Biley)

 

YSB !! :scared::lol:

F-ing hell Eric you in charge of air control and you using the time over there!!!! It was 3-57 here lol. Well Biley contributed to probably my favourite day being a Saints fan '84 Fratton Park and the guy with Golden locks missed a sitter just before Steve Moran scored the last minute winner.

US Portsmouth Vs Sholing tonight in the FA Cup preliminary round. As close to a Saints v Pompey derby as we're going to get for at least a season... At least if you don't count Eastleigh v Havant.

 

Probably going to watch this, only a fiver to get in. Sholing on fire so far this season with 5 wins out of 5.

They really have created a cute little rivalry with Plymouth.

 

11 separate threads about them on their board. They'll be claiming a make believe dock strike soon and calling them scummahs

Actually there was a Dock Strike in November 1976 when Portsmouth Dockers reneged on a deal not to accept ships from the fledgling Brittany Ferries service which had started in Plymouth.

The NDLB Union agreed that if Brittany Ferries moved their service out of Plymouth none of the other South Coast Ports including Weymouth, Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth would accept it.

The Dockers in the Portsmouth Commercial Port originally agreed then reneged on the deal and deputation from all the other ports, but primarily Southampton being closest, turned up in force in Pompey Docks to picket the gates.

The Pompey Dockers had to call upon Hampshire Police to 'resolve' the situation and a number of Soton Dockers were arrested trying to storm the gates.

One of those arrested was the brother of Bob Charles, who was the Saints Goalie in their Youth Club win over Man Utd in 1956.

So, what fictional acronym (a la Southampton Company of Union Men) can be made to describe this lot?

 

I'll kick off with:

 

Portsmouth Union of Komplete Error. (Needs work, a lot of work.)

The Tatty Timber Tabernacle has always been tatty and historic, but did you know that...

 

"On March 28, 1916 a 75-yard long piece of roof from the South Stand was ripped off and hit baker William Saunders’ house during a spell of extreme weather."

 

Some things never change, eh. Amazing. More here...
