I Quit Proud Of This Site!

I Quit Proud Of This Site!

When I first took the site over, (around this point in the month) Vital Pompey had about ten members and we had thirty points and a forum with 15 posts! Six months later we have 1930 points and 6374 posts in the forum.

Some people on this site make it difficult but not impossible. I know that Vital have a replacement already lined up as I made them aware I wasn`t happy about a week ago.

The majority of you have been fantastic and I will stay a poster on this site for a long time to come. I will also offer any advice that the new guy wants. I have enjoyed running this site but I have taken it as far as I can and now I will leave with my head held high!

Don`t ruin this site, how many sites can you post comments on the main page without being checked? How many websites don`t have rival fans having a go at Pompey on their forums? How many websites does registering take ten seconds?

Thanks for everything lads,

Les Matthews

Sorry to hear that Les i think that is just playing into the hands of morons that don't have the balls to have a go at running the site themselves but are happy to knock those that do.

Well done for all your work on the site Les, funny time to sling in the towel though!!

lol no its the right time to quit! It gives the guy some time to sort stuff out, i'll still be posting on here

Try running one for ten years. That's what I've been doing

I think it's hilarious that you think your quitting is major Pompey news! Sums you up, with your "scoops". It was one big ego ride for you wasn't it? Steve C- who are the morons, those that complain about poor information, or the ones that assume that everything on here is gospel?

lol clap clap for laughing Les, good luck out there *)

Les, thanks for all your time. Not a Pompey fan but this is one of the most enjoyable Vital sites going. All the best mate.

The morons are the people who insist on carrying out the arguments in public. There are proper procedures that should be followed i.e deal with it in private, first go to Les if that fails move on up the ladder. I don't believe everything that i read on here and i don't agree with everything thats said on here either. But running any site is not a job for the faint hearted and we should be prepared to help thiose that run sites improve them rather than embark on vindictive public assualts.

So long Smithy?

Having made it clear the arrival from Ipswich of (now captain) Pitman meant a forward could leave Fratton Park, Smith is seen as the odd one out in four for Pompey boss Jackett.

Gimme five

A seven minute hat trick wasn't bad going for Nicke Kabamba but in the end the Pompey forward ended up with FIVE in an 8-0 win over Wessex League side Newport Isle of Wight.
