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

Moody Harry

On the Quay on Monday Night, Mark Moody (a member of the 'We Don’t Want Harry Back' campaign) admitted Harry has won him over, and
believes it is time to stop the Anti Harry rubbish.

As a direct protest to those fans who are threatening other Pompey Fans each and every time they try to Sing Harry's name, Mark Moody has pledged to take to the pitch, ahead of Saturdays evening fixture against Arsenal, to Sing Harry Redknapp’s Blue and White Army.

What I was pleased with, was the response from the callers to the Quay Radio show that evening. All the Calls were positive, and challenged Mr Moody to carry out his pledge. Most Fans even said, 'Give me the Mick, and I'LL Sing the song.”

The most concerning fact that materialised, was that ALL callers, have witnessed first hand, times when so called 'True Blues Fans' have threatened other fans for trying to sing Harry's name. I find this disgusting, especially when you hear the language used towards families including Women and Children, just for singing Harry’s name.

The true Majority of Pompey Fans, in my opinion, appear to want to sing, ”Harry Redknapp’s Blue and White Army,” but are afraid to sing it.

When one of these 'True Supporters' threatened never to go to Pompey
again, should Harry Return, then his true colours were shown. In fact with the backing that so called True Supporter has received from Pompey when needed, its about time he got off the pedal stool, and let the majority express their feelings too.

One last sentence on the saga when he threatened to boycott Pompey... There were very few people rushing to his defence, most people I heard from, all said 'Good, there’s another reason to bring Harry back. Even if we still go down, we wont have that clown around'.

I dont know how you all feel, but I for one will DEFINATELY sing along with Moody on Saturday if he takes to the stage. And hopefully the majority will too.

By Terence

In response to that Terence completely agree! I saw a girl of about five (you may have seen her at West Ham sitting on her dad’s shoulders) tried to sing Harry’s name and a so called fan told her to shut up. Unfortunately her dad didn’t hear but someone else did and there was almost a fight between our own fans.

I presume you where referring to Westwood. I think he regrets making his thoughts public because he now cannot turn around and say sorry without looking like an idiot. (Too late!)

I will also be singing if Moody does carry out his promise.

I for sure will be singing for Harry, "Harry Redknapp's Blue & White Army" It's what 99% of Pompey fans want. Westwood can't look more of an idiot it he tried, Life's to short to worry about Westwood if you support Harry, sing for him

Any Harry Haters wouldn't have their hearts truely behind the club. They are trouble makers and Prima Donnas who want to be recognised but not for positive reasons. Nobody wanted Harry to go to Southampton, but so many were glad the Prodical son returned. As for the threats this can only be levied by a pack of bullies, probably used to packing their weight in the old school playgroud. Those that oppose Harry have a right to their opinion, it should however not be expressed in a threatening manner. Let's shut them up for once and for all by doing it the Carpenters way "SING OUT LOUD, SING OUT LONG, SING OF GOOD TIMES NOT BAD, SING OF HARRY NOT SAD".....

Well As the game got called off, can we not try and get some form of Pact? A Blue Army of Loyal Fnas,United and Ready for the NExt Home Game. A Game when we ALLl Stand and Get Counted by singing For Harry. ONce we get it started im sure thousands will join in. Westwood and his Pals can stamp their feet and throw there toys as much as they like then, but if they are out numbered by Fans who DO Want to sing, what can they do?

They can go and support the youth team, surely thay have something in common. No offence to our youth players, it's only the minds that are aged the same.
