Boot the Sun out of Portsmouth!

Boot the Sun out of Portsmouth!

Are you tired of the damaging nonsense printed about Pompey by the Sun? We are and as a result Vital Pompey and myPompey have teamed up to create a powerful coalition which will endeavour to Boot the Sun out of Pompey until it mends its ways.

myPompey and Vital Pompey are independent fans sites and as such we are 'rivals' in many ways given we try to ensure that each is a first port of call for Pompey fans - let's be honest here!

That said, with Vital Pompey and myPompey being among the best and most respected Pompey sites out there, we felt that joining forces on the issue of tackling the Sun will be beneficial for all Pompey fans and of course, the Club we all love.

We are tired of the slurs that this 'rag' keeps pushing our way and we are tired of the pain and hurt that this causes Pompey fans, the Club and the effect it has on the City as a whole. Not only does this publication damage us but it also influences others with its often inaccurate and mischievous reporting.

That's why we have joined forces to help... Boot the Sun out of Pompey!

How can you help?

Portsmouth and the surrounding area is one of the largest subscribers to the Sun. So we ask you to stop buying the rag and get it booted out of Portsmouth. Hurt them where it hurts most, in the pocket!

You can also help by refusing to read it online and generally wherever possible avoid it like the plague.

Perhaps if enough sales are lost the Sun will sit up and take notice and who knows, it might even mend its ways. Even if it doesn't, you know you will have done your bit for the Club and the City of Portsmouth.

Parts of Merseyside did and do this; some smaller shops and independents refuse to stock that publication, even today, whilst others keep their allocation and then send the whole back as SoR. It doesn't seem to make much difference but it sure as hell makes peole feel better. I've even seen individuals attacked in the street for reading it, but that is extreme and not a stance I support.

agree tony, whilst - without doubt in the liverpool case - i can understand the immense feeling on the issue attacking people for reading is too much surely...
if people want to read the sun in pompey that is fine, fair enough, but those that love the club and the city are only helping them to aid hurting us by doing so - this might make no difference, but maybe it will?
we say why should those in pompey - and pompey fans wherever i guess - keep giving money to a paper that shows us now respect...

currant bun, sun... come on sneaks think about it :-) plus possible 'copyright' issues might have meant using the sun's logo could have proved problematic...

I'm in. Not that I read it either, but their coverage of 'PompeyGate' is just plain rediculous and really went beyond the line and has damaged our club. You get my full support guys!

I used to buy it every day but after some of the s**t they printed a few years back when were under Mandaric I called time and haven't bought a copy since. Times all the way now, way better sport anyway...

I have to admit though that I bought it last Thursday so that I could get the fixture list pull out and the racing guide for my day at Ascot. I feel ashamed now! :(

I'll back that all the way. And although I don't live in Pompey the "THING" ought to be off the streets anyway, it damages your mental health. Never buy it anyway,I've got my reputation to think of. And don't ask what reputation...it's a work in progress.

Fratton team sheets - Pompey v Bristol Rovers

Pompey are at Fratton with Bristol Rovers the visitors for our league two match. This is a 3pm kick-off, as was intended by the football gods when the beautiful game was invented!

On this day in history...13th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 13th February.

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?
