So I think it best that they pay their money back go abroad and live a happy life free from the scrutiny and management from their so called family.
Never, ever going to happen. If anything, I think it'll get a whole lot worse for them

Sunderland would have to put in a serious cash offer and it would be seen as a serious test of FV's mettle and intent.
It's OK. I'll have a word with his Mum. ;)

Oh, and credit where it's due - a magnificent turnout by the Portsmouth supporters. Roughly three fifths of the lower tier. Every credit.

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

To my expert eye out looks v much like it all turns on if we can knock them over and enforce the follow on. Tough act to get them out, bat again, be comfortable we can't lose then get them out again, particularly on that pitch. I know it isn't trendy anymore but they've only bowled 2 (?) sessions a...

Poor first half from us, excellent second.
I thought Pompey passed it around nicely in the first half, as opposed to us being poor.

Meanwhile - someone's been at the Liam Edwards voodoo doll again. Not at all, Chief. Pompey's no. 22 is a vile little c*nt by the name of Ellis Harrison, who twice clattered into our players after the ball had gone. Stamped on Edwards' (who'd had an excellent half) foot then fell down like he'd bee...

Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

:D Can't remember the exact game but I'd guess Reading, as the players were warming up I remember looking for our new right back who was due to make his debut. I assumed that the young boy with the blonde basin-head haircut was the mascot. Imagine my surprise when I found out it actually was Steve M...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Four priorities to keep: Zouma, Darcy, Crawford, Politic Four to give their cards: Hobbs, Weir, Hall, O'Grady It's harder than you think... I feel for Hall but I don't think he's gonna make it, and O'Grady has done nowt wrong but we need to rejuvenate the front line. As for the keepers, mainly resa...

Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

I didn't escape my attention that the majority, if not all, were inswingers targeting the near post. I remember reading that such a corner is statistically the most likely to result in a goal (I think the theory goes that it offers two opportunities to score, either from a direct header or a flick-...

In this country, Bruce, one can legally call oneself anything one chooses. Only on certain legal documents will you be refered to by your 'legal name'. Be that the one you were registered at birth with, or have subsequently legally changed it to. The rules however are not completely set in stone. I...

224 for 4 at Stumps. We've had worse first days.
Indeed. As ever, tomorrow it would be good not to end up 252 AO.
Indeed. However, the BBC are reporting it as us "Having the edge". What? After one day and less than a half an innings? They don't half talk some shite.

Here's a summat. This transfer embargo, I was chatting with Our Kid about it last night. I thought that we were still under it because it was imposed on us by the EFL for a specific period of time (this season for instance), however, he claims that we're still under it because all the creditors hav...
