4,400 Pompey Fans at Fulham!
I posted an article earlier on in the week saying that three thousand Pompey fans would be attending the Fulham game. Well I was wrong as 4,400 Pompey fans made the trip to the west of London.
Basically what happened is when the allocated Pompey tickets where all sold (3,000) Pompey fans started buying tickets for the neutral area situated next to the away end. (Is it called the shed end?) This stand has a capacity of 5,000 and saw 4,400 Pompey fans with only 600 neutrals or Fulham fans.
The Pompey following was as strong as ever as Pompey took all three points. We went through the juke box rolling back the years to such songs as “Shalala lalalala, Shalala lalalala we sent the Sc*mmers down.” Just to give you an idea of how pleased the fans where the majority (75%) sung “there’s only one Harry Redkanpp,” which I thought was brilliant to see, as he showed at the end how much it meant to him.
Unfortunately there where a few boos but a win against Blackburn and Borough will surely see one of the greatest away game atmospheres ever seen at Charlton. Amazingly there are still tickets available for this game but as soon as that phone line opens Monday morning they will go in a matter of seconds.
Play up Pompey
