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

It was a fabulous atmosphere there yesterday and I’m sure this will be carried forward to FP next Saturday. Pleased to hear the HR songs but disappointed with the boos. If you don’t agree with or like him, no issues, your prerogative. I have the same issue when we boo our own players, but then that is my prerogative. As for the Sha la la song, that “is so last season” and sounds a little daft. Bring on Blackburn, four on the bounce, 2-1 home win.

agree how about shalala lalala lets send the bagies down. That is brill! lol
lmatthews
I thougt we did sing it but with the scummers replaced with baggies, but i was a little drunk!
danonash
lol yer we did but baggies is more updated. What you recon?
lmatthews
If i'm honest, i prefer not to mention it, i'm to much of a sceptic, and think it brings bad luck. I was at the WBA game last year, I have some pretty good memories of singing it that day!
danonash
i hope brum drop first, can't stand bruce
paultsmouth
I hope Harry stays long term... What ever happens..... Bring back the Harry songs to fratton park.
PompeyMutly
One more point to make is not only have we made up the points but the goal difference to. A 2-0 win at blackburn and west brom to lose 3-0 would turn the goal difference right around.
PompeyMutly
yer good point goal differnece could be crucial! Hello pompeymutly welcome to vital football feel free to post on the topics in the forum.

Great Atmosphere yesterday, sounds like the good old days may be returning. Pleased about the cheers for Harry lets carry this back to Fratton Park on Saturday against Blackburn

The noise as I was walking through the park on the way back to the pub was incredible and that was about 15 mins after the final whistle. I saw the Met in front of me in the stand commenting on the place bouncing, they looked a bit concerned!
danonash
They must of been Brum fans if they looked concerned. lol
nelson
Paultsmouth should know that he can try and take the pee out of Fulham, but also that until four games ago you lot were doomed. If it wasn't for a dodgy Russian who no doubt made his money through illegal dealings I wonder where you would be now
Ollie Sheehan
Sour grapes Ollie...We got the double over you. The 1-0 at Fratton came before the Gaydamak investment. Anyway weren't you financed by some Arab from Harrods ? Go away and sulk, like all the other Fulham supporters.
pompeygray
Kettle, pot and black calling springs to mind!
danonash
There's only one Dodgy Russian and his in the Kings Road. Nearer you lot than Portsmouth according to my A-Z map
nelson
if it wasn't for your chairmen you would be in the bottom division
lmatthews
Well done pompey keep it up! A spurs fan
huscarl
The shock result is still to come! Pompey 4 Gooners 3!
danonash
Boo Boys need to get over their problem. Harry is Back and as a DIRECT Result Pompey are staying up, What more do they want. Like the "Sha-lala" song, this is ALL dated now. Its time to move on. For crying out loud, dont they realise how Stupid their "Anti Harry" campaign, and "Sending Scummers Down" songs make us look on the TV? Get behind Harry, Get behind the team, and lets get some NEW songs ringing out loud on Saturday.
Terence
One more thing lol....... I was at the baggies last year, and i too, have GREAT memories. My dream would be to Birmingham and Villa drop, and us and Baggies excape... Although thats probably asking too much. We could then sing "Gonna send the Brummies down" lol...
Terence
that sheenan gets easily upset doesn't he?
paultsmouth
lol well said terence
lmatthews
Yes I bet they were singing something like that when they gave us the Hawaii5 0 touch up.
pompeygray
sheehan is a bitter boy isnt he! nice one! i reckon youll beat boro, sunderland and charlton, sneek a couple of draws and stay safe! good luck
vertigo_red
Hope you guys stay up. It's great scum being a div lower shame they look like they'll survive the drop again!
book_me_browning
Thats nothing. We'll take 10,000 to wigan if we're allowed.
