It is the second site I go to after Sky Sports news - so I think it is good.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
Typed in 'Pompey News' on Google and there it was.

6 - When did you first watch Pompey live - not on box unless this is the only way you have been able to see them? Not necessarily at Fortress Fratton though.
When I was seven - so 38 years ago - North Stand Upper with our next-door neighbour. He was a North Stand Stomper.

Twice this season - Used to be a season ticket holder.

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
Current favourite - Has to be Defoe. Past - Robert Prosinecki.

Quarter Final against Forest - strange but it meant a lot.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
Depends on who will eventually take over from Harry - I have a good feeling about Tony Adams, and think that the Academy will produce some diamonds for the future - not just one or two.

Hope it helps - In the words of Alan Partridge - Ahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

KMKY, McPompey.

good to get to know alittle more about you Highland_Pompey - and finally someone has done the alan partridge 'knowing me knowing you' reference, i thought it would never happen... even tho we have some fantastic footballers now, and will probably have some even better ones in the future i think prosinecki is secured as my best ever - ive still to this day to see a better player than him, when i say that i mean in the flesh, on tv i could say i have but at a game ive never seen better...

anyone remember Prosinecki toying with the Bradford defence? His step-overs were like watching an adult playing with a toddler

Yes what was your previous sign on or is that retained in confidence ? Strange selection of 'DEFOE' as current favourite. With only a few games under his belt I would have thought you would have looked elsewhere. Has the Highland air got to you ol' mate. Mind you I do strange things, in December I wore a Pompey shirt in a Celtic pub in Glasgow and nearly got asked to leave as it was mistaken for Rangers apparel. I told them that I was born in Portsmouth but my Dad was a Celtic Glasweigan. Of course I lied but I got to drink with them...

Highland Pompey here ! Thanks for all the comments reference my KMKY - AHAAAAAAAA. Yes, perhaps the Highland air has got to me. Defoe was a knee jerk reaction - I would probably have to go for David James as current favourite. Glad that so many agree with the Prosinecki choice. That free kick against Palace was miles better than Beckham could ever do. I was stunned when we signed him, and just thought that he was worth the season ticket fee alone for one great season of drag backs. At times I thought he would light up a fag on the pitch - he was that laid back. Does anyone remember the one tackle he made, and the standing ovation he got for it? Priceless. Dingwall area is okay - Ross County are doing well this year and will probably win the 2nd Div title. I haven't been to any games yet, as I still yearn for watching Pompey - wouldn't seem right to watch another team. I wore an Icelandic bobble cap out one day, and that got mistaken for a Rangers hat - agree that you have to be careful with colours. And no, I wasn't Fen in a previous life - think it was PompeyGav. Nice to meet you all - PUP Highland_Pompey
