The Bravest Fans...

The bravest followers in the land,
Are Portsmouth FC football fans,
Who march the kingdom singing songs
Of fortunes lost, and fortunes won.

We all went off to Wembley,
Our legs were all a-trembley
But not 'coz we were fearful...
We'd all just had a beer-full!

The bravest followers in the land,
Are Portsmouth FC football fans,
Who won't lie down and cry 'No More!'
Just sing out loud whate'er the score!

The match was end to end stuff,
For Spurs fans t'was a bit rough,
Defoe and Crouchy couldn't score
You Spurs ain't singing anymore!

The bravest followers in the land,
Are Portsmouth FC football fans,
Who marched to Wembley thousands strong,
To prove that 'Arry could be wrong!

In extra time we scored a goal,
And felt that we were on a roll,
Then Tottenhams goal was disallowed,
Which really pleased the Pompey crowd!

The bravest followers in the land,
Are Portsmouth FC football fans,
We sing out loud and strong to chant,
Of our respect for Avram Grant!

Then...Glory be! ...A Penalty!
It went straight in and we were free,
To dream of Europe once again-
Who knows, maybe AC Milan!

The bravest followers in the land,
Are Portsmouth FC football fans,
To win the cup would be a treat
...But beating Spurs was oh-so-sweet!

It's to the tune of Captain Beaky, if anyone can remember that. It was going to feature Twitching Sid!

Pompey at Crawley called off

Pompey WILL NOT climb into the top 3 this weekend - whatever Carlisle do - as the game at Crawley has been called off.

Lalkovic heads to Ross County

In a somewhat odd move - admittedly he's not been involved that much - Pompey's former Chelsea & Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic has joined Ross County on loan.

On this day in history...21st January

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 21st January.

Crawley in doubt

Pompey have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places - if we beat Crawley and Carlisle fail to win - but the elements might rob us of this possibility?
