Keep Frogmore and the Sailor!

Pompey need to keep Frogmore and that sailor bloke that stands by the tunnel! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from The Rabbi's poll are thoughts I share.

To be honest I am not really a big fan of Frogmore, the blue frog just irritates me, but the kids like him so for that simple fact I would be happy for us to keep him rather than take him to the nearest pond and leave him in it.

As far as the 'sailor bloke who stands by the tunnel' is concerned I am a bit of a sentimental fool and as this particular character has such a connection with Pompey I feel that we need to be keeping this character for all time. Some things you outgrow, or have to move on from - the Portsmouth by Mike Oldfield music we recently spoke about for example - but the sailor will never be outgrown, will it?

What the poll asked - Should Pompey get rid of their mascot, Frogmore and that sailor bloke who stands by the tunnel?

How you voted - No 75%, Yes 12%, Who am I? 8%, Can't be bothered 5%, Can't decide 0%

Current Poll - England lost in Russia last week, this defeat not only puts us closer to not qualifying but also Spineless Steve closer to the exit door.

Sooner or later Spineless will be replaced as England manager - surely - but when he is who will it be, or at least who would you like it to be, that is what NinjaTim wants to know with this - 'next England Boss? It'll happen sooner or later so let's pre-empt the pundits with a poll.' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

Rug - I think the poll is flawed :) The Rabbi never gave us the option of keeping the sailor and squashing the frog. I for one (and I know there are others, including yourself by all accounts) who beleive the frog should go, but we should keep the traditional Pompey Saiilor. As I've said before the sailor is a long standing piece of our history and those like me who can remember the days of buying the 'blue' fooball mail will surely want him to stay for all time .... Anyhow's if he goes I'd have to change my picture in the forums ...

Is there any truth in the rumours that Owenspompey is the Pompey Sailor and that Russellm is actually the the person parading around the pitch in disguise as Fromore ...?
Chix
good point Chix - keeping one but not the other would have probably been curtains for frogmore!
pompeyrug
wasnt the sports mail also in pink?
pompey4me
Chix if it got me in for nothing i would dig my old old uniform out and parade round the ground. Mind you i dont think it would fit me now!! Frogmore does a decent job for the kids and leave him alone if he keeps them happy, most clubs have a mascot now so we are not alone. I forgot how much i looked like Richard Gere in my uniform!!Ding Dong
Owenspompey
Sailor must stay. It's tradition, it's Pompey. Don't care for the frog, I think frog, I think France, sorry.
storagematt
chix NONE AT ALL !!!
russellm
now i wonder what idea i can come up with for The rabbi's next poll
russellm
but i originally intended to pose the questions, should frogmore get acquainted with a liquidizer? and should the next time the stupid sailor points his " hey i don't know you really but will pretend i do" finger can it be removed and shoved up his back side?
russellm
as for the new vote there was a very interesting article by tony Cascarino about harry and the england job
russellm
as said im not a big fan of frogmore, but he is good for the kids so lets keep him, not liquidize or drown him in the pond or anything... out of the englishman that could get the job - if the fa took that route again - 'arry would surely have to be right up there in the running? but clearly i wouldnt want this as i want him here...
pompeyrug
The frog just makes us look like the Mickey Mouse first division team we once were - get rid of the bloody thing. Keep the sailor -heritage and all that. Rug, how about starting an article with someting other than ......not my vote, yours? Only a gentle dig - still think the site is great.
WalshWasGod
How about swapping Frog for Orville. I here he is going cheep!!!!
storagematt
storagematt that's a cheep shot
russellm
It gives me the bird.
storagematt
My kids loved Nelson as a mascot
lincspfcfan
Or how about Sherlock Holmes?
eastneydave
storagematt stop twittering on
russellm

russellm
I was gonna stick my beak in to this debate but couldn't decide feather I wanted to or not !
