If you pay we do it...

If you pay we do it...

...if not sod off!

Sir Alex Ferguson has the nerve to call Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez 'arrogant' and 'disrespectful' and then he comes out with tripe like this: 'with all the money in the Premier League, some grounds should be better.

'There should be a minimum standard of size of dressing room, especially now you have more players on your bench and an increased staff.

'You have requirements for stadiums to be eligible for certain divisions, so the quality of the dressing room should be part of that.

'Everton's are so narrow it is unbelievable. Portsmouth's away dressing room is not great and the one at Craven Cottage is smaller than my office.'

Credit where it is due he did say Fratton was 'one of his favourite away grounds' though...

'Kettle', 'pot', 'black', do these words not mean anything to you Fergie? And you have the nerve to say others are 'disrespectful!'...

I am sorry if ours, Everton's and Fulham's dressing rooms are not up to 'the standards' that you and your overpaid prima donnas are used to but not all of us have the riches that Manyoo do, and things such as 'increasing dressing room sizes' and installing state of the art facilities for these pampered playboys who want to be undressed, rubbed down and fully clothed by their minions are not exactly high on our list of 'to do' priorities, well more to the point high on the 'affordable' to do list.

Not everyone is as rich as Manyoo, nor are we as high and mighty!

We all know that Fratton, and its facilities, are not really up to scratch to be honest and do need to be improved but money does not grow on trees and some things are more important than ensuring our visitors are given the top notch 'facilities' that they crave.

Some clubs cannot allow their debts to rack up into hundreds of millions and keep getting away with it, if we could then we would all have stadiums, facilities and superstar players like you - remember though one day the bubble will burst, and when it does no matter how great the stadium is and how large the changing rooms are this is not going to stop Manyoo tumbling so stop lording over everyone with your holier than thou attitude...

Ok, maybe I have got a little carried away but you get my drift - I am not a fan of his as it is, and that riled me!

What the hell brought this one anyway? Why was he talking about changing rooms in the first place?

I'm sure they are clean, probably even cleaner than hospitals. Maybe we could put a marquee up at half time or something, I'll bring the sausage rolls and maybe a foot spa for Ronaldo but Giggsey is going to have to do his own make up as I'll be busy and I usually need a pee at half time

So we now have snobbery in football... eh.. Their supporters will be complaining that they can't get a prawn sandwich inside certain grounds next.. I think Pompey, Fulham and Everton should respond by complaining that the size of the Manyoo facilities are soo big that it costs them money to provide maps for their players so they know where to go .. Crawl back up from where you can Sir Shallow

Haha, that's a good thought Chix. I agree, if they pay, then go for it! Or maybe, they could just bring their own, and it would be just as they wanted it!

On this day in history...29th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
