A Celtic Fan Abuses PFC Over Petrov

A Celtic Fan Abuses PFC Over Petrov

This Celtic fan wrote the following about Portsmouth Footaball club (ouch!)

'I think all you POMPEY fans should face reality your club is a joke, your nowhere near the size of celtic, your only positive would be the location and therefore league,which allows you to get beaten by some of the worlds top clubs, portsmouth however are in the scale of things complete nobodies,who i imagine are followed only by those in your rather pointless city,where as celtic has a worldwide support about 100 times what you could show, even compare your stadium to ours your inferior in every way.

Also what you stupid little portsmouth fans seem to have not taken in consideration is that even if you pay the 7 million for him,petrov only wants to play in the epl and he's so desperate to do so he'll even join your club to get in,however he's not going to want to be faced with a relegation battle or at best some mid-table no hope joke like you could be on your best day,so the second he gets a better offer he'll leave you in a tenth of the time it took him to turn on us and judging by his recent antics if he dosen't get a move to a real club after hes been with you for a short while better he just won't bother.

Face reality,your never even going to get into europe nevermind the champions league,obviously the epl is a million times what the spl is however i personally would rather following a winning team who are able to actually get into the champions league sometimes even if we do get beaten its more than you'll ever achieve with your epl of which you are the whipping boys for most teams.

Perhaps for the portsmouth fans its more enjoyable to lose most weeks and never win anything and more than likley never will win anything in your life time of supporting your little club because at least at the end of the day you can say you play and usually lose in a good league.

Also what kind of name of nickname is pompey anyway,that about sums your whole club,laughable and pathetic,pretty much nobody cares about portsmouth and to think your better than us just because you are destroyed by better clubs more regularly just shows how little you have going for you in the first place and ultimatly how delusional and pointless you truly are.'


Thanks for that Chris!

Well, we've won the ENGLISH football league TWICE, which is more than they will EVER do. And if all he's worried about is following a winning team, he'd best stick with celtic in the epl. He obviously has no idea what it's like to follow your team through all its trials and tribulations. If celtic ever got overtaken by someone like Herats and they kept winning year on year on year, then i'm sure he'll change his allegiance.

Nobody likes a bitter jock! Guess he's got a lot to be bitter about! Petrov wants to come in England to prove himself in one of the best leagues in the world and not keep wasting his time in the equivalent to the conference. I'm a Villa fan and I hope Petrov signs for you and you have an excellent season next year. Your fantastic support deserves a top half finish and I think you'll get it

Not all Celtic fans are like this goon - far from it. The Celtic fans I know are decent people; yes they're a bit miffed about the Petrov affair too, but it's fools like this that influence peoples' perceptions of them. Be ashamed...

Can i just say that Chris is upset because Celtic fans the world over saw Stan as the mainstay of Celtic for years to come. Celtic fans have nothing against Portsmouth in general, the aggravation and frustration is aimed at Stan, and because it's your good selfs that would appear to be benefitting from his play this season it's Pompey that bore the brunt of the previous Celtic fans ire. Good luck to yourselves in the epl this year.
26/07/2006 17:03:00
I can see he's upset about us losing a player like Stan, but still no need to act like a muppet and slag of PFC because of it. If they do get hold of him then I hope he helps your season. End of the day, he wants to go, he has given us great service, and would rather he stayed, but no point keeping someone who isnt going to be playing with his heart. Happily take the cash and concentrate on getting another striker and left back!

Well, you've all but proved you you only follow Celtic as they big, have a good stadium and are successful... If Celtic were that great then Petrov would not be wanting to leave, I guess even winning at times becomes boring, although (and I'm not anti-Celtic, Scotland or the SPL on the whole) lets face it there isn't much of a challenge up their. To really prove, and test yourself as he wants to you have to play in the best league in the World, the English Premiership, if not then Spain or Italy are the places to be. As for Pompey itself we are looking to move forward, we've never claimed anything more than just that. Yes we are a small club, and we do have an old stadium not in keeping with the "giants" of football, and the chances are we'll never win the title again but do I care, I'm proud to follow the club not their reputation or history, and have through thick and thin, and will continue to until I die. I'm not saying this is the way it should be, but I'm Pompey born so I follow the team of my birth, I've not jumped on any band wagon like so many of those 100 times more fans Celtic have have done!

As a True Celtic fan I feel I must apoligise for this morons blatint lack of disrespect towards your club. You must know that the majority of Celtic fans are good people and dont act like this person has chosen to. Petrov wants to leave PFC want him, the majority of Celtic fans do not want him anymore. Simple. I once again apoligise and hope you will see past and idiot like that.

My guess is he's hacked off at the way Redknapp has conducted his business in the public domain that is the press. Redknapp may be the Portsmouth manager, for the moment, but he isn't Pompey. It's totally unfair to wish all those ills on Portsmouth just because one person acts like a used care salesman. Ask most Celtic fans where they'd rather be, the EPL or the SPL and I reckon the majority would jump at the EPL for two reasons, better income, better teams to play against. I'm a Celtic supporter and bear no ill will to Portsmouth, good luck to you. But, put simply, tell 'arry to put up or shut up. If he wants Petrov then pay Celtic's asking price. Otherwise, shut up and go look elsewhere. Trying to beat Celtic down in the press won't do himself any favours. After all, when Gordon Strachan tried to buy Niemi from Southampton when Redknapp was there Strachan was told you'll pay our asking price. So 'arry don't be a hypocrite, pay our price. Good luck Portsmouth, no ill will here, but 'arry is a different matter. Managers come and go but fans remain! @ DougInABox - does that good will extend to pumping your team twice? You'd do better worrying about who's going to be your new manager than worrying about us bitter jocks and our mickey mouse league. Nobody likes an opinionated git!

As a Celtic fans while I disagree with abusing other clubs, I'm pretty annoyed at Portsmouth. Celtic have given their valuation of a player on a 4 year contract that we have already stated we want to remain with us. It's simple, Portsmouth must pay what we asked, otherwise Petrov, like it or lump it will remain with us. To be honest I would tell Portsmouth that if they come back with another offer that does not match our valuation then under no circumstances will we do business with them now or in the future. Thet are unsettling a player we wish to remain with us.
