The Chips Are Down In Pompey Roulette

Pompey Supporters’ Trust have made their bid for the club. Pause to take in the enormity of that statement. This is possibly one of the biggest steps taken in the history of the Trust movement. Not because of the fact that a Trust is in a position to take over a club so recently in…

The Dog Returns to the Pompey Manger.

You have to admire the stoicism of football fans. No matter how much the parameters of the game are manipulated to the advantage of those with little emotional investment in our clubs we continue to process through the turnstiles.

Greg Clarke: A Bit of A Dinlow Moment?

‘Dinlow’ is proper Pompey. It is used, often affectionately, to someone who has said or done something idiotic.

On The Brink: Pay Up Pompey, Pompey Pay Up

How on earth did it come to this again? Two years ago, Portsmouth Football Club became the poster boys for football’s wretched current condition when they became the first Premier League club to be nudged into administration. For all the heartache that this caused, the club was due to be getting a clean start with…

Pompey’s Blame Game

We have been waiting for this since November – but that doesn’t make it any better. The new manager, the younger team, and games like the awayday at Blackpool notwithstanding, no one has been able to fully enjoy the simplicity of Championship survival. That is because, when the first shoe hit the floor in November,…
