Be Our Guest: What A Difference Two Years Makes

  Pompey last travelled down the M27 to face fierce rivals on February 13 2010. On that day Pompey entered it with confidence and expectation. This was mainly down to the fact, that despite Pompey’s financial problems at the time, the squad then was still infested with internationals including the likes of David James, who would later represent England at the World Cup in South ....

Be Our Guest: Time For Pompey Fans To Share The Trust's Vision As The Clock Ticks...

    I’ve been watching the debate about the PST share scheme with some disappointment at the negativity it has encountered. Twitter doesn’t allow an adequate explanation of why that negativity is misplaced, so here are some initial thoughts on the merits of the scheme. I feel some sympathy with PST, they are against the clock on this and if this has been unveiled ....

Be Our Guest: Saints Are Surely Pompey's Beacon Of Hope?

  On April 7 Portsmouth take the short trip St Mary’s to play Southampton. This reminded me of an issue that over the last few years has started to irritate me more and more. It’s not a big deal and its mostly said in jest but its got to the point where I’m no longer going to play ball by the conventions of the conversation. History dictates that the interchange goes like ....

Be Our Guest: Pompey And Proud. Bring On The Ritual Slaughter At St Marys...

  Portsmouth Football Club are cheats. They spent beyond their means and must be punished. An example must be made of Pompey. Who is laughing now? This and more is being said by football supporters up and down the country. Even the third Fans Reunited day for this coming Saturday game against Bristol City hasn’t gained the sympathy that Brighton and Plymouth received during the ....

Be Our Guest: Pompey Must Learn The Lessons Of The Past

  I’m only of a tender age but I have most certainly experienced my fair share of player exoduses, financial problems and winding up orders. Understandably the current situation is a far more serious issue but the idea of having to sell and loan players is something am content with if it assists the club’s ability to survive. Previous departures of Diarra, Kaboul and ....

Be Our Guest: Lord Palmerston Exposes Andronikou's Folly

    I gave an example in my last post on my blog of the sort of genuine action supporters could take in order to compel Balram Chainrai to see sense in his dealings with Portsmouth FC.  He says at every turn how “reluctant” he was and is to be involved with the club, but also says he is determined to maximise his financial return on that involvement.  ....

Frattonise: What The Dickens? The Ghost Of Pompey Past (pt 2)

  From our very own literary correspondent from beyond the grave, Charles Dickens, (aka Frattonise ten bob to you mush) rises temporarily (?) from the dead to present, in two parts, a very late, but updated for 2011 tale: A Christmas Carol…. The story so far: It is Christmas Eve 2011 and Ebeneezer Chainrai has tightened the Pompey purse-strings, but he has just had a strange ....

Ending No 3 By Stephen King

FRATTONISE: What the Dickens? The Ghost of Pompey Past - Ending No 3 by Stephen King   Ebeneezer sat in silence as the realisation that Pompey's fate lay in his hands hit him hard. He leapt out of bed and ran over to the window. “Hey, you kids- clear off out of it. Go on, push off!” He closed the window and went back to bed. That was a hell of a nightmare he’d just had. It seemed to go on all night. It shook him up a bit for sure, but it wouldn’t ....

He leapt out of bed and ran over to the window. "Hey you kids!” he shouted, “How would you like to become founding members of 'The Secret Closet Pompey Fans Club?” The children weren't over-keen on the idea, but it was better than the rubbish they usually got from Pompey. Ebeneezer ....

Be Our Guest: No One Has A Clue Who But Thatís Not Stopping The Rumours

  No one has a clue who but that’s not stopping the rumours. The past ownership for me has been the biggest kick in the teeth. I actually believed and trusted them. Now it seems I was naïve and forgot previous regimes. However, Andrew Andronikou, who I was slightly sceptical about during our last brush with administration due to his constant recycling of pointless information we already knew has recently impressed me. When the news broke that a takeover was ....

Be Our Guest: Two Sides To The Points Verdict, But Pompey Can Prevail

  Tension rose for many Pompey fans as the Football League postponed a definitive verdict regarding Pompey’s points deduction. Many see this as a potential off-putter for any prospective buyers waiting in the pipeline and although this may be true to a certain extent; I see a slight bit of encouraging news hidden in-between the lines. The Football League said how they would ....

Be Our Guest: Why Pompey Should Consider The Option Of A New Club...

  Dodgy-Russians and skint-Arabs are terms that Pompey fans have had to use far too much recently. News of Vladimir Antonov arrest and possible extradition is deeply disappointing as I thoroughly believed Pompey were embarking on a bright new dawn. Unfortunately the hope has lasted just a mere six months and the hope has now transformed into complete uncertainty. In previous ....

Be Our Guest: Why Pompey Fans Should Be Content With Seasons Form...

      The not too recent past has been tough for Portsmouth fans and last season had one aim and one aim only, to stay up. That was achieved successfully and perhaps with a bit more quality and depth a lot more could have been achieved. This season was slightly different though. Summer signings including Greg Halford, one of last season's star men and Erik Huseklepp ....

Joshua Perry: Barnet Blip Puts Brakes On Pompey Optimism

When the fixture list was announced back in June, I must admit when I saw that we would open the campaign at The Riverside, I was hardly optimistic about our chances. Flashbacks of that depressing afternoon inside the Ricoh Arena on the opening day last year suddenly flooded back. A 600 plus mile round journey dawned for our fifteen players – one of whom a 37 year old (no, not Kanu) had ....

Day Of The Match: Patience, Please!

    A rain-lashed night at Selhurst Park and a 4-1 defeat has seen some fans, if not reaching for the panic button, at least trying to remember where they put it. It is a measure of the insanity of modern football that after 8 games, of which we have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 4 some are questioning the position of Steve Cotterill. Back in the day, people would say you can't ....

Hall Right Now: Time For Some Answers

  The Sunday papers show the depth of the problems at Fratton Park. Whether the lurid stories are true or not is up to the administrator, (when his investigation eventually starts), and the courts to decide. There is one very obvious conclusion to be drawn from all this though; the need for a fresh start grows stronger with every day. The salary information coming out of Fratton ....

I tell you what - if one more person comes up to me and asks me why I didn’t see this coming, like some superior footballing overlord, I think I’m going to start throwing cans of Coca-Cola at them. The assumption seems to be that I, as the solitary Pompey fan in this office (and I bet there are a few of us out there) seem to be their equivalent of the CEO, and as such should have had ....

Liam O'Brien   Back on the 25th February 2008 Portsmouth signed Liam O'Brien from QPR for an undisclosed fee.

Be Our Guest: Redknapp -top Class Manager Or Political Genius?

With the long-awaited return of Harry Redknapp to Fratton Park this weekend, we take a look into the past of the former Portsmouth manager, and whether he's really as good as he likes the media to think he is. The Londoner has made his name in the modern game as being a 'wheeler-dealer' within the transfer market, but is this really the case? Some may argue yes, as if it wasn't for his tact in ....
