This topic, to applaud Scum or not on their promotion back to the championship, was just one of the topics that arose during the last 'Chew The Fat With Chix - here' session in the forum last Thursday.
Opinions were shared, with these opinions varying somewhat...
PFCblue offered this one: 'I applaud Sotons rise from the ashes. They had some diabolical times and points deductions.
'It goes to show what a decent manager can do.'
Just to throw in my own two cents, for me a club that has invested the money that they have with the talented array of young talent also splashed in should have achieved promotion so they achieved what they would have been expected to.
That said, rival from down the road or not, you have to take your hat (begrudgingly) off to them, surely as you would any side that gains promotion, right?
Brighton on the other hand, again for me, deserve more credit as things have been much tougher for them and they walked away with the league one title!
Other topics of debate were the player of the season, not much was said on this issue, and the old favourite that has been an ongoing debate for years a new stadium for Pompey, could/should we get one?
The latter issue saw the follow response from Pompeytim: 'anyway, its all a pipedream right now, can't see any investment on that front for a good few years. Shame really.
'I remember saying to my old man, "before all of this ends [the Premiership days] and the owner sods off, I just hope they get that new ground and training ground built." Never happened, and that was a real crime.
'My old man used to joke that the guy who knocked out the artists impressions of new grounds was one of the best paid blokes in Pompey!'
Who 'might' be the top team on the south coast was also debated briefly...
Chixy will again run his segment in the forum this Thursday at 7.30pm, so join in if you can, but in the meantime catch-up with his thread - here.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
