New ground/Training ground??
For many years as a Pompey fan going back to the Old Fratton End before it was demolished we have had so many false dawns regarding a stadium the roll on roll off roofed one that Jim Gregory promised to the ill fated Farlington marshes and them bloody brent geese!!!
Mandaric promised to turn the pitch 90 degrees and then the bizarre hard project but at last we seem to have a feasible option, don't get me wrong I love Fratton Park, I was brought up in the shadow of the floodlights listening to the roar of goals in my Nan's back garden as a small boy but if we ever are going to compete we need a top stadium and Fratton just does not seem viable.
I wonder if the council really want a successful football team sometimes with the little help and backing they generally give the club when it has looked at different options and the same could be said of the new training ground which people just want to shoot down before it ever has a chance.
I really hope that when my son and daughter get a bit older we have a top class stadium that the top class fans deserve but a small piece of me would love to take them to Fratton Park, oh well only time will tell!
