Call yourself a Pompey fan

Call yourself a Pompey fan

Sit down and read this

Did you ever seen Pompey at Wembley ?

Did you watch the AC Milan game at Fratton Park ?

Did you watch Pompey in the Premiership ?

Did you see us play Saints in December ?

WELL WHERE THE F*CK ARE YOU NOW?!

A great number of people from The Trust and Pompey`s 12th man are doing a sterling job promoting the 'Pack the Park` and 'Pay4aPal` schemes.

BUT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO !

If you supported Pompey at any of the above events and are not going on Saturday then you do not deserve to call yourself a Pompey fan.

Bit harsh ?

No. I don`t think so

Your club needs you NOW and if you sit there and do nothing there will not be a club to watch in the future - IT IS UP TO YOU !

Call yourself a Pompey fan ?

Are you going on Saturday ?

You`re not !

Why not ?

Oh! You live aboard ! - Well donate to the Pay4a pal scheme to let somebody go in your place!

Oh! You live too far away in the UK ! - Well you managed to make a 'glory match` - Why not now ?

Oh! You don`t want to go on your own ! - Meet me in the Rutland Arms I`ll make you feel welcome and I`ll even buy you a pint or a ticket if you can not afford it!

Perhaps you can`t afford it ? - Register with the Pay4apal scheme - You may get a ticket that way - Or PM me I`ll buy you a ticket

Oh! You are too busy ? - What! Too busy to help support the club you claim to support in their hour of need ?

Maybe you are working ? OK then I hope to see you at our next home game or perhaps you were there last week eh ? No! Really ! oh but I bet you could get the day off if we were playing at Wembley !

The bottom line is .. Anything less than a packed house on Saturday is a disaster.

If you care what happens to PFC get your backside down to Fratton on Saturday... and take your family or a mate with you if you can!

Whatever you do, don`t come crying to me when there is no football at Fratton, because when I ask you if you were at the 'Boro game and if you say no, I am more than likely to call you a glory hunter rather than a Pompey fan.

I make no apologies for my opinion - If it has p*ssed you off - Good ! - That was the intention !

GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM IN THEIR HOUR OF NEED - THERE IS NO EXCUSE !

Currently less than 14,000 tickets sold for Saturday ... I want to shout and scream at all those at Wembley or on the common the day after the 08 cup final or those that saw ManU , Arsenal, Chelsea etc.. and are not going on Saturday .. They don't deserve a ******** club !

Tracy - I know you'll be there .. that's my point every bugger basks in the glory ... excluding the 14,000 that are going on Saturday if just 1 in every 25 people who were on the common brought a ticket the part would be packed to the rafters... the other 1's in 25 could do the same for the remainder of the home games...

I'll be there, in person as opposed to in spirit this week. Had a bet in last week and it's a rare time I can afford a flight over for the weekend.
