'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pompey are Pride of the South!

This is a response to the easiest question I have ever had to answer. “Southampton Vital” published an article posing the question, “Who are better Pompey or Southampton?”

There are thousands of reasons Pompey are better than Sa***s. Here are just a few of the top of my head;

1) We are in the Premier League and we may be going down but at this moment of time we are the highest placed club in Hampshire and even if we do get relegated we will have a higher placement alphabetically.

2) Milan Mandaric's favourite sport is football, where as Rupert Lowe's is hockey.

3) Our fans are more passionate; two years ago we won fans of the year, which was the same season Southampton were in the premier league. Any one know who won it last year?

4) We have a greater history; having held the F.A cup for the longest period of time, being one of great teams in the country and being host's to the first ever floodlight game.

5) In my eyes our fans dislike your fans more. Although this website does not condom or encourage violence the amount of Portsmouth fans arrested in this fixture last time we played, wasn't a coincidence.

My recommendation to the “Southampton Vital” site is not to try and take on the “Vital Portsmouth” site as it appears we have by far the most registered fans. Seeing as our top ten members score ads up to 607 where the Southampton site adds up to 33.

I wish you all your best with your site but please no more silly questions your embarrassing your fans! I have set up a poll I recommend you vote on as many different computers as you can. If you do you may reach 5%!

To all you Pompey fans out there, we all know you're the best fans in the land. Even when the attendances where around twelve thousand in the bad old days we still had twelve thousand die hard fans.

When I went to my first Portsmouth game, that was it I was hooked, I was about five years old but till this day I can remember looking around at the sheer joy on peoples faces at the end of the game.

Register to this site, as I would love to hear your views on Portsmouth and the team down the road. You may not like all my articles but if there is one thing I guarantee, then its articles from the heart.

Final thing I would like to say is I would love to draw Southampton in the cup next year because I still believe Portsmouth are going to stay up!

Us Pompey fans can't wait for the come back from all you Southampton fans!
Who is better Pompey or Sa***? Pompey 13% Saints 87%
Typical S****s Fan can't add up
your main reason is your in the premier league. That doesnt make u a better team. Reading are in the CCC at present but its obvious to all they are better than sunderland at this moment in time.
Reading couldn't beat Birmingham in the cup and they are in the bottom 3
pompey 64% now hahahahaha
no the article had more than one point!! And no reading are not better at this moment of time.
Daft question, Pompey far better. How does Reading get included in being a Southern club??
Blue Harley
lol yer gd point
Reading got included by a S****s fan. Must now realise that Pompey & Reading are better than that lot down the red end of the M27
Reading are included because Berkshire is as far as I know a county in the south. Unless it's moved of course. RoyalHighness
Steele-eye Saint
oooooooooooow lol dont have a clue do they nelson lol
"over twice as many wins for saints. pompey must have sucked for the whole of fottball history" 1976 wrote that on the southampton forum! lol shall i tell him or u!?!?!
They need to read the question "Who are better Pompey or Saints" it doesn't matter if Southampton is in Berkshire or Scotland (If only) but who is the better. Reading doesn't come in to it.
lol i know this is football website not a geography one!
Fight fight fight fight fight! :D
lol it be 100 v 3 lol
Will that be the scoreline when we play them at home next season... lol
A struggling Premiership side will always be better than a struggling Championship side. And when they were a Premiership side do we need to remind them that we kicked arse at 4-1.
Southampton has one thing better than us. They have a decent ground. We beat them in passion, fan base, history and a bigger trophy cabinet.
Obviously you just have to look at the great things about Pompy. (1) A great Chairman and major shareholder with deep Hampshire roots, whereas some clubs like, Chelski for instance have just sold out to foreigners; (2) A charisimatic manager setting records for end of season league positions in the Premiership that may never be equalled; (3) A magnificent, if slighty shabby stadium, but well suited to the quality of football on display; (4) An FA cup record, including holding the Trophy while a war was on, just over half a century ago, that may for ever be the club's only appearance in the Final! To follow such a team rightly instils a sense of........what else can we do on a Saturday....
in response to that all u did was critisise our club u didnt big ur own club up and there is a good reason for that isn't there, there isn't anything good about your club that u can say!!
One final....tell the idiot we have been in 3.
ok, Dear idiot we have been in 3!
Reading are going very well but Reading are miles top in the CCC not bloody hopeless like Scum in 17th.
Oh and can we count the War Cup Final that would make it 4. Maybe we shouldn't count that one as we then can't lay claim to holding the FA for 7 years. Fancy losing to Brentford mind you it probably was the Air Force or Army v Navy, given that all the players were probably serving with His Majesty's forces.
After what I saw on Saturday the Saints are better than us both!!!
Let's face it, both of us are crap at the moment - the only way to judge will be when we meet next season - history means nothing.
Steele-eye Saint
we wont meet next year lol
ha! you even had to swap round the names!! earlier today pompey were above saints! Ah well, it now reflects the league next season. You cant even win a poll fair. SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM SCUM
lol dnt no wot ur on about lolololoollollollololo
Told you we would get the scum invasion, but lets face it they are hasbeens and now a useless football team playing in a dirty town. We don't have to worry about them anymore 4-1 (For once) and for all.
lol yer brighton r more rivals lol
I wonder if we will hear the peels of 'bell end' again or will it be the end of bell. Maybe we could ring his neck in synchronisation with our chimes !!
LOL he is the southampton answer to the pompey bell! lol i wonder if he will resign his name
It's not to heaven but to hell we send the man who goes under the name 'bell end'.
Burley gets a phone call from Rupert, "Hi george, there has been a terrible fire at the the ground." Burley, " ow no what about all the cups?" Rupert reasures him, "Don't worry it has reached the kitchen yet!" lol
Now where did we put that trophy cabinet, it's got to be around here somewhere....I'll ask Rupert perhaps he uses it in the boardroom as a biscuit tin.
