1 - Vital Pompey username?
powered_by_pies.

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
Born in St Anne's in Southampton (boo! hiss!), my home is in Locks Heath, and I live in Bournemouth at the moment because of university.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Good question! Not long - a few months or so? I can't remember when I signed up! (Written in March 2009)

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
A great fan-run website, with dedicated Frattonista's who write thought-provoking and balanced articles, and a message board that treats everyone's opinions fairly.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
News now, it was an article written by Chix (I think).

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.
I can rarely see the blues 'live' because I work weekends to keep the beer fund up, and I'll happily admit I haven't been following them for long, but I finally managed to go and see them when they played Vitoria Guimaraes in the UEFA cup first leg. The atmosphere was incredible, and I loved every second of it. I'm desperate to get back again!

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Again, because of work, very rarely. I listen to most of the matches on the Quay radio station, which always involves me jumping out to the stock room every five minutes at work to check on the score!

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
Current has to be either Johnson, James, Nugent, Couch or Belhadj, the first four because they seem genuinely determined to play as a unit and for the team. I like Belhadj because I can see great potential from him. Give him a couple of seasons so he can get his temper sorted out, and I can see him being a big name. Former players has to be the likes of Lua-Lua, Mendes, Muntari and Benjani, and also Robert Prosinecki, just because he was a mad-man!

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
There's been so many in such a short space of time! The FA cup quarter final of last year, the great escape, the AC Milan match - but I think the all-time best was seeing Sol lift the F.A cup, as it showed how far we'd come, especially after so many had always written us off.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
To survive relegation this season, then to see an experienced, professional manager come in and re-build the squad back to what it was last season, and also to see Gaydamak sell us to someone who has a passion for the club's evolution - and who has stacks of cash!

nice one pies, and a fine addition to the ones that we already have - thanks for sharing.
belhadj is raw, i know we cannot say youthful raw as that isnt the raw i mean, but the talent is there and if we can work on him the same way we have johnson then we will have a fantastic footballer, not that he is shabby now by anymeans!

Good read and encouraging that the young generation are joining in to support Pompey. My daughter's friends are at uni there. Do you know Andrew and Toby?

Excellent read pies - would have prefered you to elaborate a bit more on your username and how you came up with it! When I was at Uni, I think my nickname would've been "powered by Kebabs"! Good answers, and Pompey have had a lot of good times recently - let's hope next season we add a few more on to what we have already!

I haven't been to Uni either Gandor, but then in my youth, I wasn't clever enough. Nothing's changed since. Nice read pies and I too share your hopes fir this and next season.

Thanks for the comments guys! dedmans, I'd have noidea I'm afraid, I do events management and I'm in my second year, what course(s) are they on? As for the username, well, I originailly started using it a few years ago, as a tribute to an Isle of mann TT motorcylce racer called Dave Jefferies, who unfortunately crashed and died there. His monicker was always 'powered by pies', and that's pretty much how it came about.

Awesome - it's a wicked username I must say - conjures up all sorts of mental images - nice to tribute it though to someone, I take it your a fan of motorsports then? I hope you're starting to discover that football, and PFC, is much better!
